Thanks goes out to all my opponents and Followers of this blog for kicking me and getting me to update it. I have been busy of late with work and only managed to squeeze in a game here or there. Work goes apace with my preparations and here is the first battle that I played with this 1850 list I prepared for the Invitationals (which is now pushed back to March 20th).
I brought a Space Marine (Red Ultramarines!) and see myself using them during competitive events. The Blood Angel Codex really struggles in the current meta and I just don't see them being competitive enough. FW models were allowed when I designed this list (which has now been removed and we are adding Australia Community Composition into the mix). Unfortunately, the next few games will include my FireRaptor as I didn't change my list and was practicing with the FW allowance in mind.
My list comprised the Battle Demi Company with Sicarius, 29 Tactical Marines (20 in Pods), 3 Centurions with Grav, Librarian Level 2, 4 Bikes (2 Grav + Combo Grav), a Razorback. In a CAD I brought a Drop Pod, 20 Scouts with Sniper Rifles.
Jason brought a mix of Harlequins with a number of Jetbikes for ObSec madness.
|Mission was Contact Lost|
So I had to deploy them outside of the vehicle.
|Jason's deployment with the Wraithknight taking centrestage|
|Redeployed the Tactical Squad!|
|Centurions drop in and take out the Wraithknight with Hunters Eye|
|Jason did not have much luck drawing the right Objective cards and moved forward to try to kill me to achieve the special ones|
|FireRaptor arrives and Jason did not really have an answer to it|
|Unfortunately for Jason, I managed to destroy every one of his units|
I will be going back to makes changes to the list. See you guys soon!
