Death Guard v Fists Of Midas 1000 Points
My Second Official Match so far...
Heres how the Layout Looked (If the Picture even works)
His army List was..
Command Squad (All kinda of powerful CC Weapons he said)
He had a massive squad that looked like basic marines, but apprently they had this Special Nurgle Roll-6-to-kill-if-6" away Attack, so i would just call them Nurgle marines ince they had Mark of Nurgle
10 Nurgle Marines w/ Bolters and some had True Grit (Bolter and CC)
5 Nurgle Marines (Same)
6 Raptors (Or So i assume because he said they were 27 Points and 2 attacks) (Also with Nurgle Attacks)
Defiler with Parasite Protection Thing.
Fists Of Midas army list..
Chaplain w/ Jumpack
Dreadnought w/ Lascannon
3x 5 Man Squads w/ Lascannon
1x 10 Man Squad w/ Plasma gun + Heavy Bolter
Landspeeder w/ Assault Cannon
6 Man Assault Squad w/ Melta Bombs + leader w/ Powerfist + Furious Charge
I Know it seems i have a hell alot more than him, but i equaled it to a 1000 Points, and he claimed his was a 1000 aswell. He said it had alot of Nasty CC Upgrades.
Turn One Death Guard
Movement: He Moves his command squad, 10 man and 5 man squad all down. Moves raptors over to the Defiler for some reason. Defiler and Dreadnought move down aswell, Havocs Stay still. (It has come to my attention at this point that he moved his Havocs and shot, so ignore that when i say it happened)
Shooting: His Defilers Cannon aims right at my 10 man squad, but it Scatters into the assault squad. 2 Men and the Chaplain die . Everything else is out range by about 1/2".
Looked like this at the end of the turn: (Assuming this works)
Turn One Fists Of Midas
Movement: Everything stays still apart from the assault squad that moves behind the left Forest, and both dreadnoughts move up. So does landspeeder but hides so it is blocked LOS from Defiler but can see Command Squad.
Shooting: All Lascannons open fire on the Defiler, 2 missing and the 3rd getting an Arnament destroyed result. The Masive Cannon Naturally. The TL Dreadnought Shoots and misses The chaos dreadnought. The Assault dreadnought and the landspeeder both shoot down the Command Squad to 2 men. Bolter fire + Plasma ect shoots down 2 from the Massive nurgle squad.
End looks like this: http://img127.imageshack.us/my.php?image=layout9ga.jpg
Turn Two Death Guard
Movement: Everything moves up more, the raptors now getting behind the Dreadnought (??)
Defiler rolls for his Parasite thing but fails. Havocs move in view of Landspeeder. Comm squad keeps on going.
Shooting: Havocs Arnament destroy and crew stun the Landspeeder, but Get a man killed of "Gets Hot" In return. Defilers Missle Launcher along with dreadnoughts Plasma thing manage to get TL Lascannon Dreadnought to Immobilized and Crew Stunned.
End looked like this: http://img369.imageshack.us/my.php?image=layout6be.jpg
Turn Two Fists Of Midas
Movement: Assault dreadnought moves up. Assault Squad jump over terrain right into Chaos Dreadnought. Everything else still.
Shooting: Assault cannon and Two Lascannon shots kill of the Command Squad. Other Lascannon misses. 10 Man Squad again open fire and kill another 2 of Big Nurgley Squad.
Assault: Assault Squad Dashes into the chaos dreadnought, and with 2 Glorious Melta bombs, reduces it to rubble. Consolidation of 6" then sends it right into the Nurgle squads.
End Looked like this: http://img369.imageshack.us/my.php?image=layout6op.jpg
Turn Three Death Guard
Movement: Defiler got its Auto Cannon thing back from Parasite protection, but cant use it till next turn. Havoc Squad move up, and defiler looks to aid the coming close combat.
Shooting: Havoc Squad opened fire on Assault dreadnought, missed completely and lost another to Gets Hot. (I forgot to add that in pics from last time). Defiler shoots and misses TL Dreadnought.
Assault:Raptors join the assault. Assault Squad smashe 4 kills of a Nurgle squad, and in return they kill one. Terrible rolling from Raptors.
End looked like this: http://img369.imageshack.us/my.php?image=layout5dk.jpg
(Forgot to add Assault deaths to that, sorry)
Turn Three Fists Of Midas
Movement: Assault Dreadnought Moves further up, looking to aid in CC next turn. 10 man Squad moves up aswell.
Shooting: The Revenge of the now un-stunned TL Lascannon Dreadnought. It Shoots, Defiler Explodes! Lascannon men with the aid of assault cannon Kill of the Havocs. Now its all down to assault.
Assault: Raptors do better of, eliminating assault squad to all but 1. That same powerfist captain kills of another 2 Nurglehs.
End of turn looked like this: http://img369.imageshack.us/my.php?image=layout7li.jpg
Turn Four Death Guard
Assault: The Assault Captain hangs in there! But gets no kills.
End looked like: http://img369.imageshack.us/my.php?image=layout9ql.jpg
Turn Four Fists Of Midas
Movement: Dreadnought moves up to help Assault.
Assault: Dreadnought Charges in, but to his dismay comes to find a dead assault marine Captain=[.
Out of rage however, he smashes three Nurgles.
End looked like this: http://img369.imageshack.us/my.php?image=layout6yg.jpg
Turn Five Death Guard
Assault: It comes to our attention at this point where we realise the nurgle powerfist model was one of the nurgles killed earlier. So this assault is pretty pointless, as none of his remaining troops can kill the dreadnought. (Pretty useless those raptors wernt they?)
Result: Victorious Slaughter to Fists Of Midas
Now, to see if this Battle rep went well, or a mess up like my last one .

H00ray for big newb battles!
Raptors can not have the mark of nurgle. So they can not be in death guard army. Also on turn one how does an chalpain and 2 other died from deflier. You can take the wounds off anybody in the squad from template weapon.
Good report anyway.

nice win although your opponent was wrong on occassions. A nurgle army cannot have raptors, also, in an explosion an independent character cannot be singled out, therefore your chappy should not have died (you can take out any one from a template). However you outplayed your opponent (defiler without indirect = bad) and had a nice battle
his opponent might have been playing a generic CSM army with a nurgle leader. this way, you can have models without the mark of nurgle, such as raptors, and plauge marines still count as troops, but you dont get the free asp. champ for for favored squads or the +1 on summoning rolls.
Good job on the victory and the report. The diagrams really helped
You right but I do not think he did that because any unit with mark become an elite unit.his opponent might have been playing a generic CSM army with a nurgle leader. this way, you can have models without the mark of nurgle, such as raptors, and plauge marines still count as troops, but you dont get the free asp. champ for for favored squads or the +1 on summoning rolls.
Anyway, I did enjoy reading the report.
if he has a marked general than undivided and the characters mark remain in their respective slots however you are limited to chaos animosity (if khorne no slaanesh etc)
also i beleive it is more likely that the so called raptors are nurgle possesed marines with flight.

Yeah, Plague is right. The "raptors" were probably possessed. Usually raptors have a lot of meltaweapons, and we saw none of that :o)
Nice report btw. The diagrams helped a lot. Good going on your part since the loss of your HQ so early must have been quite a blow.
If the radiance of a thousand suns
Were to burst at once into the sky,
That would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...

Thanks for your replys all. Be having my 3rd match of the week today. Wish me luck =]
