three people had amassed 9000 points of dark angels ,ultramarines and space wolves vs 2 khorne armies nurgle blood angels and my space wolves (added up to 9000) i was using my 2000 list i posted recently . our opponent had place 4 land raiders including 2 cruasaiders all on one side of the table all filled with termies and special character(cortez,marneus calgar logan grimnar ) . we had 1 land raider crusaider and atleast 10 rhinos our side we had very little heavy support we had one blood angels dev squad and whirlwind my two vindicators 3 or 4 predators with las cannons . my vindicators were behind 2 hills hidden in front of the land raider ready to pop out . our opponent had grouped a large amount of dev squads on a large hill covering the entire battlefield behind them were sevral assault squads . tag squads with las cannons in civil war style were lined all acroos their dep zone with a leman russ exterminator two predators on the far side of the table away from me .
i rolled for my team to see what side would go first(venerable dred) Right off the bat i rolled a six my opponent also with a venerable dread rolled a 2 then a 5 . we went first . the first turn was quick . i moved my rhinos forward 2 of them flanking toward a razorback and 2 rhinos being coverred by our only dev squad . everyone agreed to make each turn 15 minutes and 20 minutes once cc started. i also moved my vindicaators facing towards the mass of land raiders and popped smoke with them and all my rhinos. the first shot of the game was from the whirlwind and ... it scattered off the board. almost all of our fire was focussed on the dev squads . a long fangs squad was shot down to only 2 remaining guys the land raiders were untouched .
our opponent turn . on the opposite flak farthest from me the only things our opponents moved were a wulfen on steroids and an hq next to him(i dont remember what it was ) the crusaiders moved forward and deployed marneus calgar and hist cammand squad . the razor back and rhinos all moved six toward my rhinos . behind the land raiders were bike squads and assault squads each moved under its full range out of what i remember. the shooting phase was insane they had more las cannons and rocket launcher than you could shake an armored company at . sevral rhinos were destroyed or lost weapons . the blood angels crusaider soaked up alot of fire and was not touched surprisingly nothing was shot into my vindicators that were sitting in frot of 4 land raiders!. the razor back fired its heavy bolters into the ba dev squad killing a marine . during the assault phase marneus and his cammand squad assaulted dante(forgot to mention him) dante killed the standard bearer and then he was squashed by marneus who consolidated into an ba assault squad . an assault squad attacked some berzerkers bolth sides recieved casualties .
our second turn
i rolled for my scout squad and they di not come in . the ba deployed their termies i deployed a blood claw squad from my rhino and moved them six toward the razor back . i moved my other rhinos that were travelling with some bloodthirty khorne and did not deploy . my dred moved a couple more inches torward the back of my vin . a bloodthirter apeared out of nowere . thats all i remember from the movement phase . the first thing i did was fire my vindicator
i put it on the landraider containing login grimnar and hist cammand pack ... i rolled to scatter and it landed on target them i penned the land raider then i rolled ...a 6!! :lol: killed the entire squad inside all 750 points . that was a deciding factor in the game . i also fired my other vindicator and coused a crew stunned on a seperate land raider . i fired my las canons from my predator and killed some tag marines the steroid wulfen was killed by a single las canon shot from khorne pred . i was oblivios about what happened on most other parts of the board . the assault phase
i assaulted the razorback with my blood claws and didnt touch it (need sixes to hit with my power fists ) the ba termies assaulted the ultramarines lraider and stunned it with a thunder hammer. lots of cc took place on other areas of the board but i was unaware (time limit) we didnt completly finish our turn becous of the time limit but got most combat done .
ops turn 2
dred moved toward s death company squad and multitudes of termies deployed from the remaining land raiders the majority of assault squads moved within inches of cc and the razorback tank shocked my bc they moved out of the way.
all of the rhinos and the razorback deployed bllod claws and grey hunters and moved towards my blood claws(along with a rune priest)
the shooting phase was not as effective as the turn before (lots of cc) but a machine spirited las canon destroyed the gun on one of my vindicators it was also immobilized .
the assault phase was total blood shed (khorne was very happy) a large mosh pit developed next to my vindicator with blood angels and an hq and some termies going at it in cc . a drednought assaulted the blood angels death company and started ripping it to shreds . cortez assaulted the land raider . combat started against my blood claws . they were assualted by grey hunters and a rune priest accompanied by some blood claws .
i lost a 3rd of myy blood claws squad and the rune priest only killed one guy (this happened every turn 5 attacks 1 dead) i killed two guys with normal attacks and lost base with a power fist put stayed in base with one and killed 1 guy .
our turn 3
the blood letters came in next to the mosh pit near my vin .i rolled for my scouts they appeared behind two las canon tag squads in assault range. i moved my empty rhino forward to give room for my other rhino to deploy its grey hunters with power fists who moved six toward cc .
i moved my dred into los with a long fang squad . i deployed my grey hunters and rune priest from one rhino and moved toward the large mosh pit with my rune p and bc accompanied by fearsome blood letters . my rhino with my lord moved backward around a hill towards my dread . i fired my twin heavy bolter from my dread and killed off the long fangs squad after failing there save . the ba dev opened a can of whoop A#$! on the assault marines squad killed 6 assault marines with a hail of fire .. other than that not much happened in the shooting phase out of what i remember .
assault . the blood letters and my gh and rune priest assualted marneus and his squad who finished off the blood angels Asquad . the ultra marines lost(im pretty sure ) in cc in that mosh . my grey hunters assaulted the run priest and and his bcs we bolth lost 3 or 4 guys . the dred continued to kill the death company .
my scouts assaulted the tag squads and did horrible with thier power weps
only killing one but the power fist killed 2 i lost 2 guys.
ops turn 3
the bikes behind the lraiders moved forward toward the blood angels termies and and assault squad moved toward the ba dev squad .
very little movment accured .
nothing really happened in the shooting phase (well nothing happened to any of my units ) my scouts had tied up two las canons and my dred finished off the long fangs squad . the land raiders did fire their guns into my remaining vindicator immobilizing it .
bikes charged into some ba termies for no effect the termies swung back killing two . the bikes failed theirs leaderships and retreated away from the termies . an assault squad attacked our only dev squad killing 2 in cc.
our turn 4
skipping the movement phase on to shooting nothing happened
i fired my las canons on the predator into the ultra marines land raider and killed it it scattered next to my empty rhino .
the my grey hunters lost 4 guys in cc with the rune priest and blood claws and killed three i took a leader ship check and past. i continued combat with my scouts killing 2 again but losing bolth my power weps in the process .
cc was all over one player had to leave (khorne)
that wasnt good but so far it looked as if we were winning but it could swing in anyones favor.
ops turn 4 ,5,6
skipping movement again
shooting most shooting happened on the other side of the board no pertaining to me(i bought a soda) when i came back cc was just about to begin
assault phase cortez killed the blood angels land raider
and some termies assualt my grey hunters and ba termies were ripped to shreds
my rune priest was challenged by the emperors champs and the rune priest layed the smackdown on that punk rockin neo nazi .
we were running out of time and the store had to close so the game was called
a minor victory on our side. overall it was a fun battle

It's still alot. Think about it. Not much variety in saves, BS, WS, etc. Thats gotta make a very monotone game.Too many?! It was a space marine orgy.

You can never have too many space marines
