    My first ever game with my new army has got to have been the best of them all.

    i have recently purchased an army and have been painting it for some time.

    Using new rules (some of them are really rubbish making my army a lil hard to work with now. no rhino rushes any more with the new rules

    these were the armies:
    Imperial guard - played by with john
    basilisk

    leman russ

    2 platoons
    3 squads each

    1 unit of sharpshooters

    7 rattling sniper

    My army was: Hi im chris
    HeadQuarters
    F. Commander MC lightning claws, terminator honours, iron halo Artificer armour, bionics

    F. Commander MC power fist, terminator honours, storm shield, artificer armour, bionics

    -both in the rhinos

    Troops
    6* Tactical marines Veteran Sergeant, Lascannon

    6* Tactical marines Veteran Sergeant, Lascannon

    6* Tactical marines Veteran Sergeant, Meltagun, Rhino

    6* Tactical marines Veteran Sergeant, Meltagun, Rhino

    Fast Attack
    5* assault marines 2 plasma pistols, Veteran Sergeant

    5* assault marines plasma pistols, Veteran Sergeant

    5* assault marines plasma pistols, Veteran Sergeant

    Heavy Support
    Pred. Annihalator Lascannons

    Total: 1475pts

    Set up:

    a usuall guard army set up in a usuall guard way loads of guards men on a board edge joined by the tanks what a surprise.!

    my set up:
    rhinos on flanks
    predator in a hull down bunker
    marine squads inside a trench.
    Assualt squads in middle ready to pounce.

    Roll for mission:
    Mwa ha ha ha ha ha - Rescue. Mwa ha ha ha ha ha :mellow:

    Roll to go first:
    Mwa ha ha ha ha ha - ill go first.

    Turn 1 Iron Guard
    Movement
    the rhinos rumbled forward and the assualt marines split up looking for the right package held the sacred relic which they had lost in the horus heresy.

    Revealing
    all three of the packages i had landed on did not contain the Relic

    Shooting
    None

    Assualt
    the prdator opened up onto the basilisk. 6 hit, 6 penertrating 5 Boom Flips random direction oopsy lands ontop of the devestator squad BYE BYE!!
    the 2 lascannons also dis well by taking the battle cannon from the leman russ.
    NO ORDANACE ANY MORE


    Turn 1 Imperial guard
    well that was a good round of shooting by chris. the new rules really play against chris at the moment. No rhino rushes any more.

    Movement
    I decided to commit one unit to finding the holy relic which the space marines had cherished so much so reluctantly the snipers moved forward.
    in the new rules sniper rifles can glance tanks (they were the only anti-tank unit i had left)

    Revealing
    Amazingly the snipers had stumbled acroos the package. this would really make chris annoyed now he had to run inot a guard army. i am bound to take down a couple marines with all the lasgun fire.

    Shooting
    None

    Assualt
    none.

    Turn 2 Iron Hands
    Wow and lol the rattling snipers have something that belongs to me.

    Movement
    The rhinos rumbled forward and got ready to pummle some guardsmen
    The Assualt squads ignited their jump packs and without hesitation jumped straight towards the ranks of guardsmen ahead.

    Shooting
    The plasma pistols shot at the snipers and killed 4 of them leavinf 3 left for them to kill.
    the lascannons shot at guardsmen and killed 3 of the puny men.

    Assualt
    the Assualt marines jumped into the rattling snipers killed them easily and without hesitation swept and advanced inot a guardsmen unit just in front.

    Turn 2 Imperial Guard
    Chris was in combat with me by this point i had lost the game already, and there were 2 killing machines in his rhinos which would be on top of me next turn as well.

    Movement
    Towards the combats

    Shooting
    Why bother?

    Assualt
    3 units of 10 men ran inot combat with the Assualt Marines
    and killed....
    ....
    ....
    ....
    ....
    ....
    0 marines but the marines killed 9 guardsmen..............................
    he lost but he stood his ground.

    Turn 3 Iron Guard
    Say Hello to my good friend Falken Ironhand. Chapter master of the Iron Guard.

    Movement
    the units jumped out of the rhinos.

    Shooting
    Lascannon fire took down another 3 guardsmen.

    Assualt
    Falken and his six men and the F. Commander and his 6 men charged at the guardsmen. Falken with his six attacks killed siz guardsmen and the other marines did the rest.
    the f.commander striking last stood there took a hidious amount of attacks on him only to find out that in the new rules you cant target people and so 1 marine died but the force commander killed 4 with his massive fist.
    the assualt marines killed another 6 to the 1 that fell so this time we won and the guard were cut down by the pursueing assault marines.

    At this point i had the parcel still and the other units were tied up in combat.

    so at this point john gave up.

    i think i played pretty well as this was the 1st game i played with this army.
    what do you think?

    Wow... that was a good fight, but kind of one-sided. Once the Leman Russ was destroyed and the snipers killed, it all went downhill quite quickly. All-in-all, I have to admit it was a good battle despite the fact that it was all Iron Hands the whole game.

    i think it was downhill from the start.

    the IG player:
    a) needs to place his bassie better
    b) get heavy weapons in his squads


    such poor IG performances make me sad :unsure:

    I really have to agree with BoxANT with imperial guard you really should be looking at a layered integration of heavy weapons capabilty rather than reliying purely on Oridience. With an assult army you really should break up the assault by taking one unit at a time and drop that unit.

    The IG player needs a better army list and maybe use his head a little bit. You know something&#39;s wrong if your IG and you don&#39;t shoot at all the whole game. Im almost embarrest to read this battle report it was soo much of a slaughter.
    What is dis signature nonsence?! dem stupid human zoggers are always trien to confuze us.
