Tyler vs Alan
Seize Ground (3 Objectives)
-Bonus Mission: Kill the enemy leader.
Blue dots show objectives.
Not a lot happened in terms of shooting. The Ork bikers turbo'ed up toward the corn objective, followed closely by a trukk of boyz and the Nob carrying BW.
The looted wagon moved into the cover a bit, but its boomgun shot fell short hitting nothing.
The only thing of note was the weirdboy transporting him and his mob to just outside the cover they were in.
The Lootas fired of madly, taking away the battle cannon from the Defiler.
The chaos moved their units forward toward the middle tower and toward the corner objective, while leaving a squad behind on the objective that was deep inside the Chaos deployment.
The chaos pred moved, but its heavy bolters were out of range.
The bikes continued to turbo their way up to behind the cover that the corn objective was in, again still followed by the trukk and BW that were making their way up the Ork flank.
The weirdboy and his mob proceeded to make their way back into the cover that was holding the Ork objective.
The Lootas continued to fire off shots at the on coming Defiler, this time knocking of a Close Combat arm.
The Chaos moved in toward the corner objective. Sending in a unit of raptors lead by the Sorceror, and the unit of Zerkers backing them up.
The Lord and his Raptors continued on behind the tower as the Pred moved in closer, one of its heavy bolters letting loose a spray of rounds at the now in range Weirdboy mob.
Turn 3 saw the trukk that had been making its way up the ork flank, crash forward into the terrain and parking itself on the objective before disgorging its load of boyz.
The bikes whiped around to assult the raptors, and the BW moved forward, the nobz foolishly disembarking in the Orky wave of madness.
Elsewhere the two trukks down on the other side finally pounced, the mob of boyz and the warboss charing into combat with the Chaos Lord and his raptors.
One of the unit of Deth Koptas came on in this turn, coming in from behind the Pred to assault it with a Buzz Saw.
With the loss of the Lords raptors, and soon after, the Lord himself, the Oblits flamed the remaining Boyz, toasting most of them before charging in themselves and crumping the Warboss.
With the death of both nominated HQ's, both players gained the game Bonus Points.
The Defiler charged into the foolish nobz as the Zerkers made short work to the move of boyz at the corner objective.
Turn 4 and 5
Turn 4 saw the death of the ork bikers, but also the death of the Sorceror also. The remain raptors jumped forward to engage the remain nobs and to wipe them out, while the 3 strong Zerkers sat on the corner objective.
The other squad of Deff Koptaz had now entered play, and they started to head toward the Zerkers.
The Lootas poured their fire into said Zerker, but only killed 2, leaving the champion, who was later charged by the Deth Koptaz.
With the nobs now dead, the armless Defiler and the remaining Raptors head toward the Ork objective, which was no longer held by the Orks as the Weirdboy teleported out of the terrain yet again only to land within rapid fire range of the squad of marines that had been advancing through the tower.
The Weirdboys mob died, but the Lootas would remove the marines from play in the next turn.
The Koptaz that had killed the Pred had now engaged the lone Chaos Anchor squad. Their toughness seeing that they lived long enough for two remaining Ork boyz to run themselves up into range to contest the objective.
With the current score at 0 - 0, the last thing Alan needed was a Turn 6, but a 4 was rolled, and this allowed the two boyz to charge into the remaining anchor marines, thereby seizing the objective as well.
Tyler 1 - Alan 0
BP: 1 - 1
Unit of the Match: Chaos Oblits. Toasted a lot of orks, and bashed in the Warboss before getting crumped themselves.
Ork player Tyler was quoted, having said. "This is just the way 5th Edition plays out now. Its not about victory points anymore, so the steals are more likely to happen."
"Alan was really unlucky, but it just goes to show that the tide can turn quite quickly now in 5th."
Both players are expected to go all out for their upcoming games against the league top flight, Phil and Shaun, in this Saturdays games.
"Despite the fact we can't win, we aren't going to make it easy for either of them." Said Tyler, in regards to the two leaders. "It might look like Phil has this wrapped up, but Shaun's still in with a chance."
"But Shaun has to be careful too, as its all too possible for either myself of Alan to steal 2nd place depending on which way the games go."
Nice report, fox man. I especially enjoyed the part about the Weirdboy... exactly how I envision him operating, and exactly the reason why I will field one if I ever get an Ork force.
"The weirdboy and his mob proceeded to make their way back into the cover that was holding the Ork objective."
Good job on the win!
Aye hes a right nut job.
He's only been in like three games, and the amount of 1's and 5s that have appeared is laughable. XD
But then thats Weirdboys for you.
Mind you, I prefer him over Big Meks with SAG's, so, all is good.
Ever since I first read the rules for the Weirbdoy, I've been hellbent on including one in any Ork list I create for myself. I don't care if he's a competitive choice or not; the sheer amount of FUN he inspires alone is enough to make him my primary choice. I might even come up with some nifty conversion for one without even collecting the rest of the army... we shall see.
Are you guys going to get the other battle posted up?
Its unlikely as we have very few of the details. But I shall be taking notes for all my games at least.
I'll see if Phil can come up with a short report.
I should be able to steal my sisters cam, so I should be able to take enough pictures.
If the rest can take decent amounts of notes, then I don't mind writing them all up.
I like the kind of reporter, paper, journo feel I have going on at the minute XD
Hey. Where are the army lists?
Spambot kill tally. . .337
Aye, Lost is correct, there in the main League topic due to the fact you have to use the same list through out the league.
