Yesterday we finally played a battle, we planned for months. Unexpected battle was even greater than originally intended, because my cousin Chris also appeared withhis army.
Initially, we had to play the 2500 points, but we decided to join forces and turned out 3200.
Chris army was Blood Angels from Deathstorm starting set.
Sas also raised his Chaos Space Marines forces to 3200 pts.
After all the initial rolls, we draw scenario "relic" where 3 victory points wins the player who is in possession of a relic at the end of a game.
We draw a side, Sas first deploys his army, and we beginned first round.
In the first round, our first move is to come closer landraider with knights to the lord of Skuls.
also dreadnoughts move closer, DA dreadnought at the range of plasma cannon, and Furioso at the range of succesful charge.
First round of shooting was succesful for us. Deathwing terminators took off Forgfiend cyclone missiles shot and Ravenwing bikers stuned rhino and jamed its gun.
Devastators have killed 2 chosen ones.
Chaos made some moves, and some shootings but only cultists were succesfull :)
Our BA dreadnought suffer 2 wound from their fire.
In the second round, Deathwing Knights jumped out from landraider and went to fight the Lord of skulls.
On the other side, the combined forces of terminators from two chapters went to war with the chosen ones of Chaos and fast and manoeuvrable Ravenwing bikes started to take the relic, if Death company fails.
shots were not spectacular in this round, one dead chosen, one point of armor removed from landraider.
In close combat phase, the Knights, despite the use of Mace of Absolution, inflicted bulldozer only 4 wounds. 2 of them died in counteratack. It must be sayed right now. Do not kill him right away, was the beginning of failure. Terminators killed one sqad of chosens, but cultists were heroes in this round too. They killed whole Blood Angels Sqad, and destroyed one of the bikes.
Landraider fall from fire from chaos Landraider.
In the third round, Belial and his terminators sqad did deepstrike behind enemy lines.
Just to destroy chaos vindicator, and to expel warp talons from their hideout.
Deathwing command group moved to replace the knights in close combat with bulldozer.
Death Company took the relic. Devastators have made minor damage to the ranks of the enemy, but did not destroy any Sqad completely.
In the meantime, Lord of Skulls have the opportunity to shoot. It looks like this:
Bikes, veterans, and 2 Dreadnoughts no longer exist. one was killed by the explosion of the second. Bad luck, but i dont think so if it can do something more in this battle.
Next round I only managed to hurt one wound to bulldozer(remains 2)
and immobilize next rhino.
Assault sqads fals, Belials squads suffers from hellbrutes fire, even the helldrake appears.
Fifth round was finishing off what has remain.
I n this case, meltas might decide of victory.
