this was my first game with the new codex and since i was upgrading the list from a combat patrol force i forgot the second troops choice!!! sorry i played the defender and the game was 800 points(i think)
two grenade launcher
special weapons squad
storm troopers squad
10 chaos space marines
5 chaos space marines
5 possessed marines
we played the dawn assault mission from white dwarf 359 written by jervis johnson
terrain and objectives
the central objective was a large bunker
on my left was a landing pad
on the opposite table corner was a smaller bunker and in the table corner to my right was another objective
my opponent deployed his big chaos unit withthe terminator as close to the central objective as possible in the scenario whilst the 5 man squad occupied the bunker with lascannon. his possessed squad was to my left of the large chaos marine unit. i deployed my large combined squad behind to the central bunker and the demolisher to my left of it between the landing pad and the bunker i deployed my special weapons squad on my objective and the lascannon armed squad to theleft of the demolisher with the PCS just behind them. to the right of the bunker i deployed my CCS.
chaos turn 1
the large chaos unit and the possessed charged forwards with a mighty roar at the central bunker. the lascannon in the chaos held bunker took a shot at the demolisher but didnt do anything.
guard turn 1
the large combined squad scurried into the central bunker and the CCS ran forwards to the right of the bunker. the demolisher drove forwards, rounding the corner and into line of sight of the large chaos marine unit... the lascannon squad and PCS ran towards the landing pad whilst the special weapons squad stayed on the objective. in the shooting phase the demolisher fired a shell that blew apart 9 of the chaos marines as well as a few guardsmen in the bunker the CCS issued the first rank fire order to the large combined squad who destroyed the remainder of the unit and the terminator lord.
chaos turn 2
the possessed squad leapt around the corner of the bunker and butchered the CCS with their power swords in one round of combat. then consolidated towards the special weapons squad on my home objective. the lascannon bunker then attempted to destroy the demolisher once again failing this time not even hitting it
guard turn 2
the lascannon squad claimed the landing pad objective assisted by a move move move! order from the PCS who turned and opened fire on the possessed marines alongside the combined infantry squad one marine remained after this huge barrage the demolisher turned and fired its cannon at the lascannon bunker destroying the lascannon (we were treating the bunkers as vehicles with av14 all around) the storm troopers also arrived from a flank march and immediatly grenaded the small bunker stunning it - this had no effect since the lascannon was dead. the combined squad also charged forward towards the last bunker.
chaos turn 3
the lone possessed marine charged and butchered the special weapons squad. the 5 man chaos unit ran out the bunker and assaulted the stormy unit killing 5 of them. the sergeant and last man struck back amazing killing a chaos marine apiece.
guard turn 3
the lascannon unit took a shot at the bunker but did nothing. the demolisher fired a shell that made the bunker explode - killing a chaos marine in the combat behind the bunker from the explosion. the PCS moved forward and killed the last possessed with shooting.
chaos turn 4
the last 2 chaos marines on the board in combat with the storm troopers fluffed their attacks and the sergeant and the last stormy killed them then consolidated into the wrecked bunker.
Congrats on the win mate! Well writen and easy to follow A picture would help at the start though. Even a dodgy one made from paint makes it easier to get the set ups right in our head.
Good read though.
indeed storm troopers take down of chaos squad was pretty epic lol
