it all began like this-=-=-=-=-_+_=-=-+_+-=-+_=-+_=-+_=-+_=-+_=-+_=-=--
im am at my local gw and there are no fantasy players there (part from staff) only 40 players (didnt bring my space marines )
i challenge a staff member, and he asks me what army im playing, and i respond with bretonnians. he smiles and laughs. I ask him what his playing. "lizardmen" he replied. we deployed etc and began the game. sensibly i chose to pray to the fair lady of the lake.
he goes first. he positions his main block of 28 saurus with 2 characters (bsb and general) to hold the charge of the knights of the realm (which i will know refer to as kotr) a unit of 15 saurus to receive the charge of the Grail knights (Gk), and a unit of saurus cav to flank the grail knights, and moves his scouting skinks which i deployed behind my lines further behind my lines.
my turn comes. i move further into position to charge..
magic 5 saurus to death and shoot down 1 saurus with 12 peasent bowmen(P and move my men-at-arms (maa) up the flank by a forest.
his turn comes. he further moves the 3 units into positiion to 'anihilate' my forces.
My turn rocks up. my kotr declare a charge on the main saurus unit, but alas the GK are unable to charge, so the move into position. my maa further move up the flank, magic didnt kill anything and either did shooting. combat came around. i issued a challenge, and he accepted with his unit champion, which i over killed by 1. his general had a magic item which allowed him to always strike first. killed nothing (despite hitting and wounding 4 times!! (thank you LADY) i killed 5 more models and he had 3 attacks back, as well as the bsbs attack. yet again no casultys.they fail the ld test, and were cut down by the noble brets.
His turn; he turns his remaining saurus block and saurus cav unit around to hammer the knights of the realm ( no matter how i manuvered he would get a flank) and, to prevent the GK from rear charing the saurus he moves his skinks in front of the GK.
My Turn; i declare a charge on the skinks who hold, turn my kotr around to face the lizards. magic and shooting kill nothing.
the GK slaugheterd the skinks and overran close the the rear of the saurus block.
His turn; he declares a charge on the kotr with the saurus block to the front of the unit and a flank charge with the saurus cav. combat comes,, he had no challenges issued, so with my bretonnian honour i issue a challenge with my paladin. he accepts. the saurus block killed nothing on the charge. the unit champion of the saurus deals a single wound, i return by killing him, overkilling by -1. the saurus cav hit six times. wound all six. so with 4+ saves, followed by 5+ invunerable saves. i roll the dice. 3 failed saves. i roll for the invunerable saves. with faith in the lady i make all 3 saves !!!! i won combat. his saurus fled and the cav held.
My turn; i declared a charge on the fleeing saurus. they auto flee. i cut them down and overrun into the flank of the saurus cav. i massacre the saurus cav and destroy them.
total: 4 turns
results ; Victory points bretonnians 1300
Victory points Lizardmen 209
Massacre to the brets!!!!
that staff memeber ought to be shot, he didnt ahvea clue what he was doing 28 size saurus unit, no kroxigors, no wonder you butcherd him,
well done on the win though
WELL SAID, NO MORE SQUATS THEY ARE DEAD GET OVER ITOriginally Posted by artificer
Some extreme luck on your side. And yes, his list looked awfully bad. :blink:
sounds like he plays like a friend of mine. Beefing up one unit or so and relying on it ot win the game. Oddly enough he manages to pulverize me all the time with the one unit even though I outflank, outmanouvre and out play him. The only thing I never manage to do is outroll him.
Either way you do the math, it all adds up to you goin' down
Another win to the bretts i suppose,to be honest i cant recollect too many times ive heard of them losing. The skill of your opponent in army building certainly doesnt help though lol
probably a new lizard player, or maybe a guy just looking for a game?
40K-Beakies(9-14-4),Guard(4-7-2),Orks(34-12-11). FANTASY-Dwarves(15-6-7),Beasts (14-14-1), Skaven (17-17-10) DoC (6-1-2). CYGNAR (28-15-1)
Y would you waste soo many points on one suarus unit ?
"Fight like gobbos"- Skarsnik
Arg I hate those darn ward saves the Bretonnians get, that's my least favorite rule in their army.
It's mainly just because my friend rolls them well, once he got no armour saves on 3 dice, and then rolled triple 6s to save them all. I just hate it because I like taking the second turn anyway, so it puts me at two disadvantages :hmm:
Here I am, Rock you like a Hurricane.
