7400pts battle report mega battle
This will not be a detailed report just the highlights due to the game going on for a long time.
Hive Fleet Damnation 3000, Splinter Fleet Destruction 3000, tau scout force 400, ork warband 1000,
Opposing players 6000pts worth of templar forces double force org 1400 chaos
my hive fleet (damnation) consisted of:
1 devil tyrant
1 hive tyrant with 3 guard
6 warriors,rending 1 with venom cannon
6 warriors rending 1 with venom cannon
1 dakka fex
1 carnifex with crushing claws and venom cannon
splinter fleet had
1 brood lord with 8 genestealers
1 devil tyrant
24 other genestealers
2 dakka fex's
2 heavy fex's with barb stranglers
20 ripper swarms
1 horrodidual or something big ass creature 540pts!!
The Tau had some pathfinders some fire warriors and a commander
orks had alot of orks and a looted leman
Too many Templar troops to count it actually looked like they had more troops then us which was quite scary
terrain ok we had very little terrain some rubble here and there and a 3 story building the opposing players had a bit of terrain all level 3 but it made out to be 4 fire lanes
OK my mate liam which controls the splinter fleet didnt show up till turn 2 so our force had to hold them off until turn 2
Setup: orks took the left flank i took the right and the middle tau took the middle
Battle Plan: at first it was too bottle neck the templar due to the amount of vehicles they had already filling the fire lanes and take out the ranged support and take them whilst they were stunned.
Highlights: first turn saw the orks advance and they destroyed a vindicator from a lone rocket hows that 5 to hit 5 to glance 6 to destroy, tau took out a rhino
with the pathfinders i moved everything trying to get as much cover as possible and using my bigger bugs as shields i shot taking out a vindicator also woot!! and destroying a rhino and stunning a predator so all in all shooting was great.
first turn assault didnt seem to be much my haumagaunt squad got assaulted after being shot down to half strength,and was wiped out by a 20 man squad of templars and a emporers champ.
there turn not much happend they destroyed a ork truk and killed about 15 boys and i lost 25 haumagaunts they couldnt assault anything but a defiler shell landed on my genestealers killing 4 of them and 2 other boys pretty much there whole force moved foward
Turn 2: alot happened this turn, i moved everything foward and so did the orkies, the tau sat there and looked funny until the guy had to home (panzy) so now were another 400pts down
and finnaly liam arrived me allowed him to deploy then move and normal and fire ect.
shooting: was nice again i stunned the pred again killed about 12 marines worth of shooting cause of the tyrant and dakka fex the leman smashed the land raider orks destroyed another pred and i destroyed a venerable dreadnought exploding and killing another 4 marines, that big bug of liams killed 8 marines in a single blast making them run foward into a killer kan which i helped out with a squad of genestealers
assualt: now it gets messy here i counter charged with the haumagaunts 1 squad of genstealers and the tyrant and the guard into the big squad another squad warriors charged a ten man squad of terminators as well as 10 rippers and one squad of genestealers ravaners went into a squad of jump packers and some bikers the orks got in contact with the majority of the chaos force including his hq and elties, nearly all of the chaos forces on the ork side a dead except a defiler a bloodthirster and 6 marines.
mass amount of dead now the 20 man squad is reduced to a lone champion with 1 wound (looks really cool 1 guy facing off against over 20 bugs)
the 10 man squad of terminators is now reduced to 3 i lose 6 warriors they had a chaplain as well
the raveners kill 6 jumpackers.
there turn hurt alot they countered with alot of assault troops bikes rushed in to help another 30 odd marines came into the assault with the haumagaunts and another 10 jump packers charged the raverners about 15 bikes charged the tyrant and the splinter fleet tyrant there wasnt much they could do about the orks they had a hard enough time trying to contain our forces.
Results: all the haumagaunts perished a couple of genestealers died and the hive tyrants each got wounded i lost another 3 warriors by now my dead pile was quite big i aslo lost 3 raveners and my heavy canifex got wounded twice some more orks died then some more chaos died the blood thirster perished under the large amount of power claws, the last terminators and chaplain dies about 14 marines perished overall on my side and another 6 bikes
Turn 3 ok the fnal turn, very little moving mostly assault, the orks were progressing very fast due to the terrain and he decided to leave then the chaos player had to go home aswell so it was 2 on 2 again
we had countered again with all remaining genestealers and rippers and the occasional carnifex, all the jumpackers are now dead so are 2 chaplains another 20 or so marines died and about 3 more bikes and 1 land raider and 1 pred.
Orks : None
Chaos : None
Tau : None
will (templar) 1 land raider crusader about 7 marines some servitors and 1 rhino he took the blunt of the attack
louise: (templar) about 5 bikes 1 emperors champ, 1 chaplain out of 2, 20 more marines, 10 man shooty squad
me (tyranids) both hive tyrants 2 guard, 2 carnifexs 10 genestealers out of 33
liam (tyranids) all of his forces save one ripper swarms
we decided to call the game on victory pts cause the game was getting late and everyone was goin home and it was a massacre to the nids yay!
Comments: I would like to congratulate my opponents and teammates on such a well played game i mean after that game my head hurt so much lol, the templar dead pile actually had more models in it then i had in mine and i had a fair amount and there were vehicles destroyed all over the places it really was a wonderful site just incase any one was wondering the table size was 72inches length and width so 24 inch deployement
i would have loved to get some pictures of the game but we only had a a lil stingy camera phone and the table was too big to get a good pic. next time i will write up a nice detailed report i just didnt get a chance to do it in this cause of the game size and we only got to have 3 turns and that took 5 hours.
Ummm... Sounded like a fun battle, although it was a little hard to understand. Good job on your win.

Whats with all the different armies on each side. Was there a story behind it or was it a case of "lets have the biggest battle we can"? (The latter is always fun although it does take a long time)
Originally it was just me and liam verse louise and was just goin to be a mass battle and then all these other people wanted to join in aswell so we thought why not....doin a story would have taken too long it took roughly 2 hours a turn as it was lol.
sorry about the whole setup i have never been that great with grammar n stuff.
