    2nd Place - Battle Reports

    Hi all. 2nd place!!! Was a great tourney. Only about thirty or so but that is good for round here being a smaller town. Great fun which is the main thing. Thought I would post battle reports so hopefully you enjoy them and/or can learn a little.

    Game 1
    Win - vs Chaos
    Spearhead, 5 objectives
    He had Defiler, Vindicator w/D.Possesion in Rhino/champ. w/fist, Csm in Rhino/2xmelta/champ.w/fist, 10 T.Sons+A.Sorcerer+Lord w/Tz.Daemon Wpn, DP w/Lash
    Lost intitiative. We both advanced towards each other. My Tz DP ripped his Dp while my Plague M killed his Csm on one side. On the other side his Sons started wasting my Noise M until they got Lashed and charged by my Sl DP and my CSM. Blew up his Beserker rhino and charged the Zerkers with the 2xDP's and the remaining Csm. Tanks all had a minor role.
    Can't remember VP's (I had 2-3? objectives, 400 vs 1200?) but I was winning after 2nd turn as soon as we got into CC and it never got better for him.
    Great game against a nice bloke I had played in a previous tourney. Good to catch up.

    Game 2
    Win vs SM
    Pitched Battle, Kill points
    He had Shrike( the special Cpt guy)+Chaplain+5 Man assualt squad w/T. Hammer (all togther w/jump packs. 3xsquads of 10 scouts w/P.wpn Sgt, 1xsquad of 10 scouts w/1xML, 9xsniper, 2xvindictors, techmarine on bike
    He won intiative. Nasty. I didn't know what I was in for. His whole army infiltrated besides the 2 tanks (had me scratching my head, I am sure it was the same look that I see on peoples faces when I play Daemons and they go first, Lol).
    He then infiltrated 18" away - 6" scout - 6" move - fleet d6"(everyone can because of shrike) - 6" charge = 19-24" = CC in the first turn! I am talking about the whole army (well almost). He managed to wipe out my entire Noise Marines in the 1st turn. I don't know why he had ordnance tanks, he didn't fire all game because everything was in CC or to much risk of hitting his or out of range.
    I countered with everything I could. I then shot up all his assualt squad except T. Hammer and charged them with my Sl.DP and Defiler. Defiler actually charged a squad at the same time. DP killed his T.Hammer dude and Defiler couldn't really be hurt after that (grenades). This battle took awhile due too my unlucky rolls but I killed them and his 3rd squad as well. Plagues engaged a squad in CC and slowly killed them. Predators eventually killed one tank and a few snipers. Csm and Tz DP killed his Techmarine and a Vindictor and DP flew on to kill the remaining Snipers.
    Killed his whole army eventually but he really caught me flat footed at the start but I managed to claw my way back into it by turn 2 and then it was all bad news for him. Dominant win. Nice guy but I think he got a little put out once he realised my Defiler was about to tear up his 2xHQ's and 2xSquads and there was nothing he could really do (grenades only). All good though, I would have been a little down too.
    >kisses Defiler<
    VP's - 1500 vs 500 or so? maybe less. KP 4 vs 12 or something

    Game 3
    Loss vs Eldar
    Dawn of war, Home objectives, night fighting
    He had, Farseer w/Doom and Runes of Warding (doh!), Some Phoenix Lord that begins with K costs more than 200 and has 6 powerfist attacks (ouch) in some assualt squad that had a powerfist leader as well(big ouch), 2 wave serpents, one had fire dragons, one had banshees, two basice troops - i think dire avengers - the shooty ones, 2x Fire Prisms
    Won initiative and deplyoed Sl. DP, Noise Marines on my objective in a building near the centre and a rhino 6" from the edge (give my Plagues and effective 18" move after embarking the rear). He deployed farseer and his only 2 troops, I thought kill them and hold mine, easy. I didn't know about the nightfighting (missed that somewhere, doh) and when all my stuff came on it couldn't shoot in the dark. He then killed my Sl. DP first turn after putting Doom (nasty power that) on him and then basically outmanuevered me.
    The game ended at turn early in which I would have drawn or even won. You get that. He managed to hold me off his objective until the end in which my Defiler rolled a 1 for fleet and failed to charge to contest it. He contested mine on his lsst turn with a wave serpent moving 24". My melta's and fist should have killed it next turn and my defiler would contest his and manuvered so hhe couldn't get near it. Ah, well
    He had me on the back foot from the start as I didn't really know what I was up against (haven't fought much eldar) and I made some poor decisions (I didn't know they were poor until he pulled some nasty Eldar trick) ,, lol.
    Very competitive game. I played this guy in a tourney earlier this year (my first tourney) in which I whooped him and won the tourney and he had a cry about my 2 Lash Princes (which is why I didn't use them this time is he is the Club President in a nearby town). Me beating him put him in 4th. He had Space marines then. From playing him previously and the feedback I had from people playing him I knew I had this game would likely determine some placings and I really wanted to win but it wasn't to be.
    Good game and we get along great now. 1 all now - I want a rematch!
    VP's - He had like 1100 and I only had 700 or so, he had one objective
    He went on to win the Tourney! Congrats

    Game 4
    Win vs Chaos
    Spearhead, 4 objectives
    He had Tz DP w/wings+warptime, 8 Zerkers w fist, 9 sons incl. Champ, 6 noise w/ sonice blasters and a blast master and champ w/p.wpn, 14 plague marines w/2xmeltas and champ w/ fist, 2xoblits
    He won initiative. Advanced and he shot a few Noise marines. I lashed his zerkers and charged them w both DP's. Killed all but P.Fist champ. Perfect. Can't shoot me now. No wnds! My Plagues managed to just charge his Sons as he chose to run them (why?, he could have shot), Yay! although he manages to win combat?. Preds kill an oblit. He then charges my DP's with all his plagues and DP. My Tz DP goes toe to toe with his DP and I cuase no wnds and then fail all 4 of my saves and die? (he was the favoured one?) My other DP eventually dies and my Preds then shoot up his DP but it kills my Defiler first. Eventually his Plagues get to mine as well as his Noise marines and kill them. He holds that objective but I then deny it with a Rhino and hold 1 with my Noise Marines and win.
    Great game, mass CC with Chaos, as it should be.
    VP's - 700 vs 1200, I hold one objective

    Game 5
    Win vs Sisters of Battle
    Pitched Battle, Kill Points
    Don't really know this army as I never played them or seen them but he had 6 of those points, a squad of CC guys w/ priest, jump pack squad with special character with 6str and 2+ inv after some spell point, insane, two normal squads with meltas and fists, imperial guard - two platoons w/ missile launcher and grenade launcher, comman squad same, and two tanks with d6 high power shots!!!
    I went first and proceeded to destroy a whole guard squad with my noise marines and blast a rhino with one pred and defiler cannon kills the whole squad inside. He doesn't do much as I get lucky. Both DP's charge his HQ and the jump pack attachment and eventually I win but am so wounded I get wiped out by a counter charge from him.
    My shooting kills all his Guard in the end and my Plagues die to mass shooting and some other of their special powers that make rending ap1 hits! M CSM wipe out the priest squad and the last of his other squad. In the end the only thing i don't kill was two tanks wich were unharmed.
    Great game - nice guy and great to see something new!
    VP's 600 vs 1200 or so - 4 KP vs 12 Kill Points!

    All in all got 2nd. Yay!
    Made some great new friends, had a ball, some cool stuff and had a great weekend.
    Hope you like the battle reports! Tried not to ramble and make it clear but see what you think.
    Cheers

    sounds like you had fun!


    nice to see the noise marines pulled their weight as well.


    that shrike stunt looks real nasty though.

    The Noise Marines rock. If you haven't tried them - try them! You won't be disapointed.

    The Shrike stunt caught me unawares and it was lucky Chaos is good in CC and I survived. He phased a Necron player out in turn 2. Watch out for it!
