So some of you might remember I have a deathwing force I started
sometime back. It was originall planned to be a Mantis Warrior first
company force using deathwing rules. The 6th edition happened and
terminators were supposed to be better. And then the DA book was on the
way so they waited. Deathwing sucks now, so they sit primed on a shelf. I
had even bought chapter house shoulderpads for them.
But a few
weeks ago I played in an apoc game and the call to defend the imperium
went out and my mantis warriors answered. My 3k list was like 45
termies, two dev squads and some ICs.
Belial and 12 terminators
appeared behind an ork super heavy to deal the final blow and give our
side a few point lead. Then the foul necron lord removed their armor
with his entropic powers and despite plenty of stormshields they were
killed by volume of fire.
Calgar and friends had held the line in the middle and the orks had been fought long enough they were not yet to our objectives. With the game end, the imperium held their back most objectives with much vigor and scored yet again more points then the xenos.
