We were faced against Imperial Fists and Crimson fists, Which is an odd mirror match up to our overall team. Our blood angel and Crimson fist counter parts faced against white scars and Space wolves. Our opponents had two squads of Centurions, a vindicator and thunder fire, storm talon, and scouts. Along with tacticals and stern guard in droppods.
The mission was five objectives and killpoints. We had turn one and turbo boosted our bikes to only a few inches away from their front lines while our Pod dropped marines on our back objective. Their first turn shooting only managed to kill a single bike, due to cover saves and Chapter masters leading the front. Centurions assaulted a squad of mine, I killed two and then hit and run past.
From there we picked our fights, gaining kill points quickly and then pulling back as their droppods landed in our back field. They simply couldn't get through our fast, tough wound pools of troops, and we ended up grabbing max points.
Game two set both of us with White scars together. Our Blood angels and Dark angel forces were facing an Necron team. The above image is there just to show how many scythes we had to face against. Almost each list was the same, consisting of a lord, 3 scythes and an anilation barge. This game was table quarters and Killpoints. We were a bit concerned as all of our Anti-air units were both with our other teammates.
Game Three pitted us against Taudar, with the mission being Marked for death and multiple objectives. This meant that only one players units counted for kill points. We picked the tau side, and they picked me as the white scars. I was teamed up with GravyGhost and his crimson fists.
Our other half got seized on after making an aggressive scout move, and paid a fierce price. While not tabled, they had very little left, and suffered a sound defeat.
We ended Day 1 with 5 out of 6 games as victories. For a team with limited experience and no preparation, we were already doing beyond our expectations. We were having a great time and were playing against great opponents. 4 broke dads, Silver Snakes, TauDar, all played great games. We knew we through ourselves into hard territory for day 2, but we would take on what ever challengers we were faced against.
