Greetings all, this is my first post to the battle report section so bear with me:
My army Grey Knights
5 GK Termies
5 Grey Knights
5 Grey Knights
1 Grey Knight Dreadnaught with TLLC and ML
Nid Army (which i found out later was illegal)
4 Squads of 6 Genestealers
1 Old One Eye
(notice no HQ Unit?)
Anyway, we deploy and his lictors are hidden somewhere ready to come out later and have their way with me. It was a 4x4 table with 12" deployment. I put my Termies front and center with my two squads of GK at their flanks. My DN was also up front.
He delpoyed his 4 squads of genestealers spread across the board very nicely, with Old One Eye in the center, painted beautfully, btw.
I get first Turn.
ME: I move everyone up 6" and open up on each genestealer squad. Having 30 storm bolter shots is nice. I killed about 14 of them.
HIM: He moved everyone up 6"
ME: I moved everyone back 6" and opened fire again. Killed only 7 genestealers that time and put 2 wounds on Old One Eye.
I made a mistake nad assaulted a lone genestealer but realized i was in charge range of Old One Eye the next turn (i charged with the 5 Terminators).
SO i killed that lone genestealer.
HIM: He charges in with O1E, 3 Genestealers and the 2 lictors showed up right next to my terminators and charged in too. Ouch.
Luckly my Uber Grey Knights were able to drop O1E before he could attack but the genestealers had some nice rolls of 6 to hit and killed half of them and the lictors made me roll a ton of saves and lost another.
ME: I was getting a little worried but I moved and assaulted the conglonmerate with the 10 grey nights i had nearby. 6 Power attacks and 12 more ST 6 attacks added to the frey. Those damn lictors had 3 wounds each. Sheesh!
At the end of this phase all my termies were dead and 2 grey knights fell in service to the Emperor.
HIM: All he needs to do to win the game at this point IMO is for O1E to get back up on a 4+, he rolls the dice.....3 !!! At this point he was pretty *****ed. I couldn't help but cheer!
Half way through turn 4 he was completely destroyed. I still had full VP for my GK and my DN was untouched.
I really enjoyed the game and for 700 points it only lasted for about 20 minutes.
He conceeded defeat and was very sportsman-like.
A great game.
the tyranid player not taking a HQ (its illegal)but really it put the nid player in a big disadvantage...as for example a hive tyrant would have caused you more problems also what did you take as a HQ?
Army of the heavens, my army waits in hell
To battle on the earth, for all the souls who fell
I think old one eye is more of a threat than a hive tyrant.
My HQ was my Brother-captain terminator with 4 retinue.
Yeah thats what I was wondering. Where is your HQ? If your army doesnt have an HQ doesnt it make it illegal. Anyway even if you took an HQ you already have 40 more points than him.
Ok dood, check your math. I had 705 points, he had 708. My HQ unit was my terminators. Any questions?
as for the comment someone made about old one eye being more of a problem than a hive tyrant... old one eye is highly overrated and i believe a well equipped tyrant would have made things a lot worse for the marines
and at this low point value the nid player should have brought a squad of warriors in to fight as a hq choice and left old one eye out- much better for the points in such a small game
just my opinion but
First what points are the battle?Cause if is smaller than 1500 points he cant take old one eyeOld one eye is not a HQ (Smae with the red terror), is a special char.
and cannot be used as a HQ.
And second what is the equipment of your termis(i thing 1 incinerator it will be good versus swarms like Tyranids and Orks).
MEAT IS MURDER
old one eye is highly overrated and i believe a well equipped tyrant would have made things a lot worse for the marines
A Red Terror will wreck in a squad of termis or marines bat if the points is 1500 or more.
Red Terror all the way.
MEAT IS MURDER
You all forget a couple of things... in straight CC the Grey Knights can obliterate Nids... a stock GK has str6 and 2 attacks, WS4 (5? I can't remember but I think it's 5) and armour save 3+. And remember, Incinerators can vaporize genestealers like ants under a magnifying glass... a really big magnifying glass
But ya he definitely should have taken a tyrant and some warriors so he could shoot back...
I adopted a cute lil' poison fetus
from Fetusmart! Hooray fetus! </a>
I ditched incinerators so i could get the most storm bolter shots per turn (30 at 24" even if i moved)
Which effectively crippled him. I like the incinerator but if im that close to use it i only get one shot.
