Mark is a fantastic painter and collector. He has been catching up with me quite regularly last week and we discussed quite a bit on army composition. We then organised a game.
This was mission 2, the Relic with Cloak and Dagger. Having played this mission before, I focused purely on the Relic as it is worth 15VPs.
|Balanced Nid list
|Orks with a ton of Battlewagons
Note: he only Scouted 6" when he could have done 12". Mark wasn't too familiar with the rules
|Uh-oh, these Orks are hungry
|The Relic was in the middle so Mark deployed his Orks out to block me
|Orks didn't manage to kill too many from shooting
|Rush for the Relic!
|I moved my Hormagants forward to prevent him from taking the Relic
|And charged the Orks
|Mark moved his Battlewagon up to Tank Shock the Gants but they just moved out of the way
|The central fight was still ongoing.
|My left flank
|Tyrannocytes both came in and I sent them behind his lines
|Taking these objectives and destroying some Buggies
|Giving me some VPs
|The Warboss now joined the fight
|The Warboss and retinue was now in the picture
|But in my turn I sent my Termagants in
|And managed to take the Orcs out
|I secured a few more Objectives
|I should have used my painted Gants
|I Glided both Flyrants in to take out the Warlod and his unit
|And managed to take the unit out
Mark needs more games with his army to familiarise himself with the rules too! Good game!
