I dodged all of those and played Scotty with his Drop pod Vulcan list. Yes, those beautiful Green Salamanders came back to fight me once more.
|These same marines that had the gonads to fight my tau in combat at Frostycon!|
My second game was against an Ork Dread Mob, led my Forge world Mek dreads. It was multiple objectives on hammer and anvil. My MCs smashed into the dreads, and the DCC smashed back. The game was brutal and my tyrants passing a lot of grounding tests saved the game for me, while ArchFiend was able to make some good repairs with his meks. In the end I had two gaunt squads sitting on back field objectives, and he had two small boy squads sitting on his two objectives. My last tyrant faced off against his last Dread and barely lost. I lost that game as well by the bonus points of my Lord of War.
Having a 535 point CC Lord of war that is only as survivable as a Wraith knight seemed to really hinder me both games. Adding to my disappointment was comparing them to Imperial knights, who have I4 close combat D, and my 200 point more expensive Gargantuan can't reliably fight it with out dying before swinging.
I also got to see some wonderful models, but my camera skills and rushed snap shots don't do them justice. Back to the painting tables with me!
