Okay before I start this battle was an absolute waste of time. It was my first one at a gaming club, was fun enough and taught me a few things, but overall it was cack for many reasons. I wasn't firing on all tactical cylinders and missed a lot of opportunities, and the other reasons will become apparent as you read the batrep. I can't be bothered typing more intro so read on:
Me - Daemonhunter One
GK GM w/ Mastercrafted NFW and 3 GKT retinue - This unit never saw combat despite being stood 2 1/2" away from his severely decimated GM retinue.
=][= Retinue w 2x Sage, Mystic, 2x HB servitors and 1x Plascannon servitor - Man of the match without a doubt was the plascannon servitor; his first roll to hit was a 1, his reroll was a 6 and it just got better and better from thereon in.
Callidus - Did alright
4x ISTs, a Veteran with TPHomer, 2 meltaguns, a rhino with smoke and armour - Meh
Justicar w TPHomer and 8 GKs - They were GKs and performed to GK standard. Shot better than they assaulted.
Justicar w TPHomer and 9 GKs - Did well.
Dread w smoke and armour, assault cannon and ccw - The Untouchable, got immobilised and had every gun going dumped into him to no effect whatsoever.
Dread w smoke and armour, TLLC and ML - Pleh
TOTAL - 1470-odd points. Normally the GM retinue would be 4 GKTs and the plasmacannon would be a Heavy Bolter, but I only had 3 Termies and I left my 3rd HB in the house.
Him - Daemonhunter Two
GM w 7 GKTs - Got slaughtered by Storm Bolters.
Inq Lord retinue, 2 familiars, 1 combat servitor w Eviscerator, 1 plascannon servitor, 2 random models that never revealed their true purpose (looked like hierophants), theLord had a force weapon - Wasn't sure where to put this as the config changed more times in 3 turns than my socks do in a week. This unit started as an Elite Inquisitor with a Guardsman and plasmagun plus other random models. Then my plascannon wiped out 3 of his GKs in one go and suddenly the Inquisitor became a Special Character he had created that he didn't need permission to use because it was a 1500pt friendly game, the plasmagun became a cannon and he kept trying to move and fire it. Then he managed to charge me and the priest became a rogue something-or-other and had an eviscerator for some reason; I told him this wasn't allowed but it was late in the day and the Callidus killed it anyway so it didn't matter.
The Inquisitor started off here
Vindicare Assassin - Tried to Turbo-Penetrate my TLLC dread and missed, tried to Hellfire my GM and missed, did nothing else.
9 ISTs with a grenade launcher and plasmagun, 1 veteran with a plasma pistol and CCW - Didn't do much.
5x GKs + Justicar with Incinerator and Psycannon - Got munched by the plasmacannon
5x GKs + Justicar with Incinerator and Psycannon - Didn't make it out of my first shooting phase.
5x GKs + Justicar with Incinerator and Psycannon - wtf 3?
Dread w TLLC and CCW - Killed my TLLC dread and 2 Sages.
Land Raider - Bog standard Land Raider
TOTAL - Varied wildly between about 1700 and 2000 points.
I'm not even going to write the batrep because it would just waste valuable minutes of your life reading it; my shooting did all the damage, his massive 1500pt list were rolling badly and it ended up with us declaring a draw. Highlights included me decimating his GKTs with my Storm Bolters, the plasma cannon taking one unit down to a Justicar before they could even get near them, and me ending up with about 2300 VPs from a 1500pt game.
From now on I am demanding typed-up army lists from everyone I play
Not a very good battle rep dude. Good Draw though.

H00ray for big newb battles!
okay normaly you actualy say what happens in the battle turn by turn
ya, i really dont see the point of this thread, only thing ill add is that its not so bad that the GKT didnt see combat cuz the last time i used my 8 man squad, they never came in via deepstrike :p i would have drawn the game if they at least would have shown up and gotten VP's for them
2000pts Orks 4-2-1

It's not a case of being "lazy", it's a case of me starting a report and then realising halfway through it that there were so many violations of rules and models becoming strange units that I couldn't find in my Codex (Stormtroopers with plasma cannons and the suchlike) that I got stuck trying to make it feasible and binned it off. Was posting it a bad idea? Yes, unspeakably bad, but it's done now ^_^Originally Posted by Dylar
If you find a thread or batrep so personally offensive that you are forced to speak out, do so in the correct manner by either reporting the post to a moderator or PMing me and telling me what you thought of it. I'll probably take your head off if you do PM me but hey, you wanted the argument Flames such as the ones above are not constructive, they draw flames such as this one, clog up the forums and bump posts that really should be left to die; and if you didn't like reading the post, what compunction do you have to bump it other than trying to make yourself feel clever and important? ^_^
Well I think we are all in agreement that this thread is going nowehere fast and will just generate a lot of flames.
In the future please note that if you decide halfway through writing a post that it is not worth your or anyone else's time to read, you don't actually have to submit it.
Failing that you can always go back and edit it or even ask a mod to close or even delete the thread/post.
I guess your point was to show it as an object lesson on mistakes and I can understand that, but having read some of the responses to it and your own to them, I can see that it is only generating a lot of ill will.
Better luck next time.
Anyone wishing to have it reopened may PM me and I will listen if not necessarily agree.
