There was two games,of Ravenwing vs Deathwing,ill just describe the first battle.It was 2 k vs 2k.This game came very close to the end,but still pulled it off.
Set up was 12" up,victory point game.I set up hiding much as possible and divded evenly,ill tell you why in a sec.He set up two Land raiders in the middle,the rocket launcher termies on other side,plus assualt cannons too,then a dread behind his land raider.
I got first turn,I turbo boosted on the left side and hid behind stuff much as possible,making his right which had the troops on kinda useless except for rocket lauchers that both missed,and couple bolter shots into me which he did get some wounds but I made the saves.So this game I basicly did the 2v1 Tactic on his army which was great.
All my Land Speeders,Bikes,Attack Bikes poped out hiding,it was a big thunderbolt on his army.With the MoRW on LS in hiding with the reroll eye see special thing,which was great.I made sure to keep my bikes out of assualt much as possible but trying to make them usefull.I ate through his Land Raiders like they frekin Paper,nothing.It was so beutiful,well first Land speeders with two and with all Assualt cannons,plus MM poped his Land Raider Crusader with ease didnt even get to shoot my MM.The second Land raider Got shot by another The three sqaudren ate through with ease,also killing a termie with the D6 on a pin by the assualt cannon.So I blew up two Land raiders,and dead termie on turn so thats like 550 points down the drain for him in 1 turn.So his nasty command sqaud and shooty term sqaud were both pinned and tangled.After I was done blowing him up he stunned one land speeder one still active,also killed one attack bike.
I had a whole army of my bikes on his flank,and he was using his blown up land raiders as cover,to get 4+ cover save than 5+.Came a tiny little closer to him which was kinda a mistake.Wiped his whole termie except one,that took on like 40 wounds didnt lose once.The Land speeder one still active took out one termie for his command sqaud,which was great.But then got mowed down rockets,and bolter,assualt cannon shots.I totally forgot about the dreadnought with a plasma cannon.He missed thank god,but still if he hit it would of been devasting.Plus that one termie got 6" in difficult terrian test and had 6" like by a mm.I didnt do sqaut to him my powerfist against him and my Vet sgt fled almost off the table.then went in my other sqaud.
I was like in shock this one damn termie wiped out my whole bike sqaud,survived 40 wounds,and took two more bikes with him.Shot everything I can and I slowing him down in numbers and blew up his Dreadnought with my Assualt cannon taking off the P. Cannon.So I was like F this and charged him with my Vet sgt with a power weapon hacked him down.This vet sgt/master is amazing he's always killing something b4 he dies,when he is master he always hits at least two and puts one wound on him.Well that stop me from worrying,assualt is like automatic lost for me.Killing a couple land speeders btw.
It was getting nasty now,I brought my master out from hiding cuz the guys with assualt cannons were major threat on my land speeders plus getting close for assualt.He was pinning me in a cornor,just kept moving around to get my 6+ save.So everything shot at the sqaud with assualt cannons wiped them out off the board,and the only thing left was his guys with rockets were a pain.So he shot at my grand master and got 3 glancing hits on him and faild two 4+ invul and rolled a 5 and 255 pts was gone...but got my other land speeders were like three left to safty,cuz it was littering the ground.
I poped out behind the trees with land speeders,plus bikes to get in range just enough.I just shot hail of fire into his termies I got 3 rending,and rest wounds.Faild four of them,plus couple more down.Plus all the rest of shooting from my attack bikes,and bikes.Now down to one termie with rocket launcher.His nasty command sqaud which was pure assualt was useless,dreadnought with powerfist,and flamer no near range for assualt.Last guy fired his rocket on my land speeder and missed.That was Game,I won by having 1210 points on the board and he had around average 500 pt left.It was fun,but dear god Ravenwing just moped the floor with deathwing,just with their massive firepower ate through his land raiders with ease,plus their speed he just couldent catch up.
Second game was even worse for him,all he had was one rocket termie and Chaplian left on the board.Still had my MoRW on LS,three land speeders and 3/4 of my army which was bikes.Can't believe Ravenwing went unoticed....
Good win Grim, I was little shocked by how easily RW took out his DW. He didnt seem too bright but your victory was well deserved.
As an aside, would you like to join a DA clan? we discuss everything DA related. Your post definatly qualifies you.
Every time you read this sig: a fairie dies!
DW does not handle well as a drop pod army, it is effectively a short ranged shooty army, which should make it vulnerable to ravenwing
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Well if he was going to deepstrike me,I would either a)spread out everywhere on the battle field,blow up his land raiders or b)keep my land speeders near the table edge,in Hiding Bikes spread everywhere or keep them kinda cluttered and spreaded out up and force him to come to the edge in order to see me.Which will make it a major risk for DW and I sure hell wouldent do it.He could of handle me better if he deployed more proper against me.Like spreading out,than cluttered in the middle.He himself even admitted that DW isnt ment to handle speedy army's,which is true.Most of the game I controlled majority of the game.Yah sure wings I can join your clan I dont mind you have a website.
