SO we are a month out now and at this rate I’m never getting through these things so here we go.
Game 5: Vs Nids
Mission was Table quarters I think.
My opponents list was a bit of a mishmash of tyranid stuff.
Hive Tyrant (Heavy Venom cannon, LW/BS, Hive Commander, Armored Shell)
Tervigon (With Catalyst and maybe some other stuff)
2 squads of Stealers
2 x 2 Hive Guard
So lots of points in HQ. I think he won first turn, Deployed The Tyrant, Swarm Lord and Hive Guard, and Reserved everything else (he was going to outflank the Tervigon. Right away I thought that this was a mistake given his list and mine. I seized, blew away the swarm lord and 1 of 2 hive guard units turn 1. Turn 2 his trygon and stealers came in (the stealers hid) The Trygon then died on my turn. Then turn 3 his tervigon came in and hid. I killed the Tyrant, and hive guard, and the game was pretty much all over. Major win for me I think I won all 3 objectives. I felt my opponent should have started with everything on the board to overload my target priority, if I have few targets they tend to die.
Gave 6 Vs Space Marines
Mission was Kill points I think
My opponent was running
A thunder fire cannon,
Libby (null zone)
Land Raider with TH/SS termies
2 Iron Clad Dreads
Some tactical squads.
This was a close game that came down to objectives (which was the 3rd tie breaker) I held 3-2. It was very back and forth with me killing some of his stuff, then he would hit me hard and kill my stuff.
Game 7 VS Mech IG
Mission was Objectives I believe
This was a very close game my I won the roll off to go first and go seized. This got a bunch of my stuff get hurt by his 2 Mantacores. We tied all 3 objectives and I lost by 15 VPs. Great game, though thinking back on it I think he may have gotten one extra turn (we went 7) because I have the feeling that he went last, and I know I got seized. But the game was so good it did not even matter.
Game 8 Vs Wolves
Mission was Quarters.
His list was pretty standard SW fare with a Wolf Lord and 2 Cav. I won first turn and my opponents dice were terrible. Turn 1 I killed 5of 6 long fangs in 1 unit (they fail morale), entirely killed another unit of Long Fangs and killed 2 Rhinos. On his turn he kills nothing, I then I kill the one of his speeders, his other long fangs, his cav down to the lord. This pattern pretty much continues as he cannot make a 3+ save.
SO overall I end up 4-4, not too bad given that all my losses were close.
