5xGrey Knights (FAGK)
[justicar with frag grenages,tagerter,auspex]
total points 399
any comments or changes you think i should make before i go? or perhaps just a good luck shout
Your army seems pretty good except one thing, what if you find yourself against a tank, maybe add one lascannon in your armoured fist sqaud.
What did you use to make your Sentinals?
Nice Paint Job man I really like it.
Good Luck in the tournement.
FOR FREEDOM, FOR HONOUR, FOR BLOOD
how things went \/\/\/\/\/
DH vs Iron warriors
He had four squads, three tactical one with auto cannon, one with heavy bolter and one without any heavy weapons all had plasma guns and he had a havoc squad with three missile launchers
he got first turn and and started by rolling really badly all three krack missiles failed to do anything to the chimera appart from a crew stunned and the sentinals servived as well i think i lost an IG's man in this turn and so thought things were going well.
My army is/was quite shooty and so alot sat back and shot, i was doing OK with the hitting and the wounding and making my LD rolls for shooting the targets i wanted to but he kept up with the saves and lost maybe a man or two.
I had decided to DS my FAGK (this was a rubbish idea) i set them down towards his table edge but had to be carefull since we were playing on a 4x4 board not to loose them, they scatterd and landed about 12 inches from each of his squads. Plasma death as what enseud and it was not a pretty sight, all died in one shooting phase, over the nxt couple of turns our armys exchanged fire but with my basic guys been IG i got shot to buggery and was slowly wiped out to a man by turn six
DH vs Eldar
this time i was paired against another person who lost there first game, this was good as it was just what i need after such a bad defeat. It quickly became very apparent they had no idea what they were doing and had not played a lot of games and none for quite a while. They had a viper jet bike with bright lance 5xdire avengers, 5xfire dragons and five x banshees each with an exarch and the approprite wargear (ie fire pike and all that kind of stuff)
Since there army had so little stuff and deployed out of cover (well most of it) the three multilasers and 2 heavy bolters in my army tore them a new *****, two banshees made it through a wood and got assaulted my the GK (i did not DS this time i had learnt my lesson) i lost two gk they killed al that stood in there way, the game ended with the sentinals finishing off the fire dragons from a distance and the FAGK wiped out the remaining dire avengers.
DH vs Eldar
Again i was placed against another eldar player but this one was experienced with his army but had taken quite a radical army for this type of game. He had 5x wraith guard 5x rangers and 2x viper jet bikes with star cannons. i went first i could only see one bike at the start and only with one sentinal, it shot and failed to do anything. the rangers were behind a wall and so had a 3+ inv save throughout the game but luckily the constant pounding of the armoured fist squad as well as the chimera rattled them down slowly but surly, there return fire was unfruitfull . The wraithguard were sat opposite a large forest with the FAGK on the other side we both advanced to opposite sides and believing i was going to start marching through the forest he backed them away i too then backed mine away, by this time the sentinals and the AF squad had taken down all but one ranger who then failed his last man standing roll and ran off, my tank had become imobilesed with a fire fight with the bike but had won and the sentinals started on the wraith guard knowing the enemy could never get in range. by this time it was around turn six i had lost only one IG's man and had an imobilesed tank whilst he had only a squad of wraithguard left.
DH vs Ork kult of speed
he had 2xtruck boys 1x kopter and a war buggy. he got first turn tried to get a buggy over a wall and failed his roll and got imobilesed in his deployment zone (phew) the other buggy made it to a large piece of scenery in the center of the table that covered it from a lot of my armies weapons. the wartrack and kopter advanced but made no signifcant kills . my shooting was rubbish i blew up the immoble truck and that was about it . in his next turn i had one squad of boyz running for me and a war truck parked right infront of my GK this turn was make or break luckily it went my way. with the first Multi laser i destroyed the truck giving the rest of my army chance to shoot at its contents, the FAGK then got stuck in and finnshed of the squad they then managed to consolidate 6 inches into the other walking squad that had already taken some fire, this squad soon died to the GK and the battle was all but won.
we only played 4 games each of the armys were
Iron legion (won 4)
Eldar (won 2 lost 2)
Eldar (lost 4)
Chaos (won 1 lost 3)
Imp fists (won 3 lost one)
Sister of battle (won 3 lost one)
orks (won 1 lost three)
Daemonhunters (won 3 lost 1)
If you won you played a winner if you lost you played a loser and got 2 points for a win one for a draw and none for a loss. The games had a 40 min time limit (we had an alarm that told us when it was almost up) i think only one game came to a count up as it had over run and thats only cause it was husband and wife playing and they argued a lot)
Well i was overall quite happy with how things went the only army i got beat by was IL and everyone got beat by them who played so that was ok. the entire army was quite shooty with the GK there for when combat occered and this worked quite well. Im not sure what i would change for next time maybe go for IST's instead of armourd fist but that would cost be a heavy bolter (hmm well that a decision for another day)
in repy to GMS
the 40k 40mins rules do not allow for any vehicle to have more than 33 points of armour meaning the max armour you will face is 12 it was a risk i suppose only having a max of str6 weapons but even these are capable of killing a an armour 12 vehicle. if i remeber correctly i was the only person with a tank of armour over 10 but some people did chose to have lascannons in there forces.
oh and the sentinal are the old ones (i got them real cheap)
MOst of this was from memory so thats why it was a bit sparce in parts. oh the worst thing to happen i knocked a plastic IG's man onto the floor mid game then entirly crushed him under my foot
awesome, those small-force battles seem like a crapload of fun. what did that Iron Legion guy have that made him win all 4? or did he just have a horseshoe up his arse?

all hitting on a 3+ with a bodyguard of 3+ saves made for a very hard army to defreat
