    40k Votewar Infantry - Round #1 - Battle #12 - Space Wolves -Vs- Witch Hunters

    I want to stress to everyone that the mission means everything. He who stands the best way to score Victory Points should be the winner. All missions have the Infiltration, Deep Strike, and Victory Points special rules.

    Take and Hold

    Space Wolves
    HQ: 250 points => 20%
    TR: 822 points => 66%
    HS: 178 points => 14%
    Total Points: 1250 points

    HQ:
    Wolf Lord Raziel
    Frost Blade; Storm Shield; Wolf Tooth Necklace; Frags; Wolf Pelt; Wolf Tail Talisman

    Rune Priest Endurion
    Frost Blade; Runic Staff; Chooser of the Slain; Frags; Wolf Pelt; Wolf Tail Talisman

    TROOPS:
    Blood Claws Growlers
    9 Blood Claws; Bolt Pistol; CCW; Frags
    3 Blood Claws; Bolt Pistol; Power Weapon; Frags

    Blood Claws Prowlers
    9 Blood Claws; Bolt Pistol; CCW; Frags
    3 Blood Claws; Bolt Pistol; Power Weapon; Frags

    Blood Claws Howlers
    12 Blood Claws; Bolt Pistol; CCW; Frags
    3 Blood Claws; Bolt Pistol; Power Fist; Frags

    Grey Hunters Yellow-eyes
    9 Grey Hunters; Bolter; CCW
    1 Grey Hunter; Plasma Gun; CCW

    HEAVY SUPPORT:
    Long Fangs Blue-eyes
    1 Long Fang Pack Leader; Bolt Pistol; CCW
    4 Long Fangs; 2x Heavy Bolters; 2x Missile Launchers

    Tactics for attacking:
    Raziel joins the Growlers. Endurion joins the Prowlers. I fight in 2 waves, first wave consisting of the Growlers and Prowlers. Taking or receiving charge, these will eliminate and tie up many units with 11-18 Armour Save-ingnoring attacks. Second wave is Howlers, Yellow-eyes and Blue-eyes. Yellow-Eyes bring close range fire support while Howlers charge into any unit in range. They are able to kill anything. Then lastly the Blue-eyes bring my long range support. Due to split fire I can make the most of their double equipment.

    Tactics for defending:
    Raziel joins the Howlers which are staying close to objective, being the first thing to be charged into when enemy comes to my lines. Endurion joins the Yellow-eyes who deploy next to the Howlers and Blue-eyes. He shields one of these defending units every turn, depending on who is more neccaisary to protect. While these units keep back, holding the line, the 2 other Blood Claw packs, Growlers and Prowlers, charge up to the enemy stalling them, making sure they cannot effectively attack with everything and will waste a lot of time dealing with 24 Marines that never break from Close Combat.

    Model Count – 56
    40 Bolt Pistols
    9 Boltguns
    2 Heavy Bolters
    2 Missile Launchers
    1 Plasma Gun

    ----------------------------------

    Witch Hunters Infantry Force

    HQ
    Canoness:
    Blessed Weapon; Book of St. Lucius; Cloak of St. Aspira; Jump Pack; Litanies of Faith;
    - 145

    Elites
    Inquisitor:
    Bolt Pistol; Close Combat Weapon; Scourging
    -42

    Callidus Assassin:
    C’tan Phase Sword; Neural Shredder; Polymorphine; Poison Blades
    -120


    Troops
    16x Battle Sisters
    13 x Bolters; 1x Heavy Flamer; 1x Flamer; 1x Imagifer
    Veteran Sister Superior:
    Eviscerator; Bolt Pistol
    -254

    16x Battle Sisters
    13x Bolters, 1x Heavy Flamer; 1x Flamer
    Veteran Sister Superior:
    Eviscerator; Bolt Pistol
    -254

    13x Battle Sisters
    10x Bolters; 2x Storm Bolters; 1x Imagifer
    Veteran Sister Superior:
    Storm Bolter, CC Weapon
    -203

    Fast Attack
    8 Seraphim
    -2x twin hand flamers
    -Vet. Upgrade w/ Book of St. Lucius, Brazier of Holy Fire, Eviscarator
    =230

    Total = 1248[/b]
    Faith Points = 6 + Litanies of Faith

    The plan:
    The 2 Sisters Flamer Squads get close and flame and rapid fire any infantry, this is very effective with certain faith points. They also pack a punch in CC. The Seraphim move forward into CC, holding and flaming any squads that they can. The Storm Bolter Sisters provide light covering fire while moving to get within 24?/Rapid Fire range of any units. The Inqusitor goes after inv. Saving units/ 5+ sv. units, and the Assassin picks on Heavy Weapons squads (Devastators) and low leadership troops. The Canoness follows along with the Seraphim, but fights by herself.

    Notes:
    Faith Abilbites - There's 5 abilities, each eats up a faith point. For all you roll 2d6 (3d6 and pick the best two with imagifer) and check vs the squad size. For the first two, you have to roll under the squad size, for the last 3, you have to roll over. In the case of an Independant Character, she simply makes a Leadership check. Whenever you lose a faithful unit (say a veteran sister superior), you gain (a second time) the amount of faith that they originally contributed. Powers are shared among the squad of the faithful unit.

    the abilities are:
    1. +2 strength, strike last for the cc phase
    2. on a 6 to wound, AP1 or power weapon as appropriate for the phase
    3. +2 initiative (can't be used with the first one) for the phase
    4. fearless for a turn
    5. save becomes invulnerable (is activated at the beginning of any cc or the enemy's shooting phase) for a phase

    Seraphim has the Universal “Hit & Run? special Rule.

    All Sisters Units are faithful (i.e. they can use faith points), but the normal Battle Sister troops squads lose this ability when the Veteran Sister Superior dies.

    Scourging – str 5 AP 5, Assault D6, Rng 18?, Ignores Inv Saves.

    Twin Hand Flamers = Counts as a normal flamer, but as 2x CC weapons in an assault.

    All Seraphim have Twin Linked Bolt Pistols, these count for 2x CC weapons in assault.

    Eviscarator = Chainfist = Powerfist + 2D6 armour penetration

    Litanies of Faith= one free faith point automatically passed

    Book of St. Lucius = All friendly units within 6? get unmodified Ld of bearer to use

    Cloak of St. Aspira = 2+ sv

    Brazier of Holy Fire = One shot flamer that counts as a CC weapon

    Model Count – 56
    36 Boltguns
    3 Storm Bolters
    2 Flamers
    2 Heavy Flamers

    Hmm, well the calidus assain will do well.

    The blood claws are wicked good in CC with a charge, but only ok if they dont.

    Its hard to say.

    The mission is take and hold, which lends me to the sisters, as they can use faith points to make themselves deadly in shooting, while nearly invincable in CC.

    However they only have 6.

    There are also two hugely powerful HQ for the space wolves, which the sisters will have a difficult time stopping.

    I think the wolves will win.

    Well, I see the Callidus assassinating the Long Fangs. Or perhaps just moving them off so they don't have LoS on the first turn, forcing them to waste a round.

    In a shooting match, the Sisters will definetly win, especially if the Long Fangs are removed by the Assassin. In a Close Combat match, the Wolves definetly win.

    If it were a static mission, such as Seek and Destroy, I'd say the Sisters could've won since the Wolves are slow. They have no fast moving units, no transports, and no Drop Pods (Yes, I realize that they couldn't take them in the first place, but that doesn't diminish the point). That makes them sitting ducks for the Sisters to pick off as they advance. However, since the goal is the center of the board, the Sisters will have to move towards the Wolves. They can't hang back and take out Wolves piece meal and secure the mission at the same time. Even if the Wolves never reached combat, if the Sisters don't move and take the center of the board, they'll lose on Victory Points alone.

    Space Wolves, but that could be influenced if someone gave a convincing arguement.

    I vote Sisters of Battle
    The Sisters have the numbers, and with a "measly" 7 faith points they can do some real damage to the wolves. The Assassin can take out the long fangs, and the Cannoness would be able to pick on Grey Hunters.

    The Rest of the Sisters squads can elilinate the Space Wolves as each force moves towards the centre of the table. When the wolves close, the Sisters can give them the right end of 72 Bolter Shots, and 4 templates. This should sufficently be able to reduce the wolves' numbers.

    Most they likely be able to mop up the survivers in CC, with the help of the Seraphim and Cannoness if she doesn't go after the Grey Hunters, who can harras the wolves, Divine Guidance flaming, and reatreaing (not so the cannoness), and repeating so. This will allow the Sisters to destroy the wolves, and take position in the table winning the game.

    Still could go either way here, 2 to 1 in favor of the wolves.

    this and the kroot/DE fight are probobly the closest matches this round. I could see both going either way with good generals on both sides. I need to run some numbers before I decide on this one...
    The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. Bring them understanding of the power of ourselves through our strength and their fear. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all fragments will be smashed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be consumed

    I've thought about it and I still say that the SoB will win.

    The assasin can assassinate the LongFangs and then the sister's shoot uncontested

    42 bolt shots, 28 hit, 14 wound, 4 wolves die. Meaning by the time they footslog it there they've lost 16 wolves.

    IF faith is used, the AP1 thing, it get's lot worse.

    Not to mention once she's finished with the long fangs the assassin can tie up another squad for a turn and stagger the attack allowing the sister's to take them piecemeal

    And once they assault and kill one squad, they then get hit by a lot of flamers and rapidfiring bolters.

    And it's not as if the sister's are pushovers in CC, they've got eviscerators and faith to boot.

    I thought sisters were BS 3... Am i wrong about this?

    And once they assault and kill one squad, they then get hit by a lot of flamers and rapidfiring bolters.

    And it's not as if the sister's are pushovers in CC, they've got eviscerators and faith to boot.
    even if your stats are correct, they leave the sisters in bad shape.

    4 wolves a turn, is 8 dead, then another 8 as the sisters rapid fire.

    Now the wolves charge,

    Blood Claws Howlers
    12 Blood Claws; Bolt Pistol; CCW; Frags
    3 Blood Claws; Bolt Pistol; Power Fist; Frags
    Is this squad really suppose to be 12 normal blood claws?

    Anyway, 39 blood claws which lose 16 to shooting, thats still 23 wolves alive + the grey hunters.

    Anyway, the wolves move up shoot, 7 dead.

    Now the blood claws + HQ assault.

    23 blood claws, with 9 powerfists.

    Anyway, they would probably asssault across 3 squads.

    HQs go first, 6.7 dead.

    Normal blood claws, 6.2

    23 sisters attack back...

    kill 1

    9 powerfists...

    15 dead

    Sisters with chain fists: 4 dead.

    The sisters lose combat horribly.

    Faith will effect the results, but not for every squad, as they are all very strong at the start of the round, making passing the faith test difficult.

    So rolling over 16, or 13 with two dice is impossible, so i dont think its likley they will get the 3+ invunerable.
