|Stealth team with the relic hid in a corner waiting for Broadsides to come to the rescue.|
It was everything goes format at 1500 points with a 250 point side board to swap out since the missions were so unique.
Game one saw me against eldar. The mission was the relic primary with four table quarter objectives as secondaries (linebreaker etc were bonus points). The spin was the center of the table was a 2x2 zone mortalis bunker that was full line of sight blocking.
|This game come down to positioning. For the greater good I sacrificed unit after unit. Clogging the hall ways, make the ground slippering with blood to slow them down. haha.|
|My Air support helped balance the game, as they were able to line up good shots and didn't take much return fire at all.|
|The lighting was pretty bad, and my flash didn't help, but his army was highlighted with a bright blue. It made it a very Red vs Blue match up.|
|There may have been orks on the other side of those buildings.|
While there was plenty of line of sight blocking and 4+ cover saves, he's foot slogging ork boys would still have one turn in the open before they got to me after they turned a corner. His dakka jet didn't come in until turn four, so my fliers had no threats for two turns and blew away his support units quickly.
|This was my limited view of his army. Thank god for Smart Missile Systems.|
Over all I think I ended up around 4th. Which is fine by me as there were much better painted armies, friendlier opponents ( I play with really nice guys) and guys with better battle scores. Really I was just impressed with having a nearly painted amry again, and making a good showing with them.
