...is this Inquisitor and retinue as imbalanced as I'm thinking.
- Ordo Xenos Inquisitor Lord with multiple psionic powers of mass destruction.
- Deathwatch Space Marine
- Eldar Scout
- Vindicare Assassin (which was taking the mickey somewhat when the GM complained when I wanted to give one of my IG Vets a Long-Las because it was going to be over-powerful. I turned up for game one and 'oh look, someone with a even stupider sniper rifle than mine ).
Bearing in mind I'm playing a Inquisitor, a couple of IG Veterans and a Death Cult Assassin (I would have used both but they're too powerful) am I correct in thinking that my opponent is getting away with blue murder because he's sleeping with the GM (his g/f).
Assuming for a moment that your two Inquisitors were similar (which doesn't even sound to be the case there), then I don't see how a Marine, an Eldar and an Officio Assassinorum operative can even come close to being matched by a couple of Guardsmen and a Death Cult Assassin. If yours is an average sort of inquisitor, then your whole warband would probably be similar in power to the Inquisitor and Marine.
Darkthunder, yes, your opponent is being a cheating cheesy bastard. End of discussion. Youre taking the Light Side route of some flexibility in terms of storyline and action, while the opponents being very, very n00bish and gone "How do I win all the time with a minimum of skill?".
In short, your opponent is a n00b, and needs to be put down.
"It fits like clothes made out of wasps!"
One Temple assassin is usually enough to kill a reasonably-equipped IG warband of 3-4 models. One Space Marine (even if he isn't a Deathwatch Veteran) is basically the same. They require heavy weapons, power weapons, and/or psychic cheese to tear them up without losing most or all of the opposing warband. Combining them, and with an Eldar pirate and a psionically-charged Inquisitor, is a powergaming thing to do!
If this happens again, tell them your Guardsmen actually have power halberds and lascannons but you'd just forgotten to model it that way.
I have to admit that both my opponent and the GM/his girlfriend are jack-a**es.
There was at least five occasions in the game, before my opponent's SM took a head-shot which took him out (since it was the only place which wasn't wearing Power Armour) and he spat the dummy :cry: and declared the game was over, where I said "You have got to be f***ing kidding" :argh: (the fact that the SM's decidedly metallic looking sword was in fact a Power Weapon, a look at his characters stat-lines/skills and the fact that all my nifty equipment was nixed by the GM while my opponent's troops seemed to gain equipment at the drop of a hat).
The final straw was when I pointed out that if the game was supposed to be strictly WYSIWYG his SM had no armour on his head (since he had his helmet on his belt).
clearly you got a bad deal, if the GM wasnt his girlfriend then it is possible for him to colour the game so dispite the fact you are outmatched you stand a chance, but sounds like you are playing with the wrong people
Everything you have been told is a lie!
