Met Bryan at Fantasy Flight for a game. Really like how we've grown comfortable with each others play style.
Wore my "I'm not cheating. I play by my own rules" t-shirt sold by Offworld Designs from CONvergence.
Mission: Crusade. Deployment: Dawn of War.
Plague Marines won roll off. Decided to deploy and go first.
Deployment was a little long for me because of the way we set up the board. Not every general gets the ideal deployment zone. Attempted to seize initiative nope. Night Fight first turn.
|Bottom of first. Cast the Psychic powers and that is it. Deployed cautiously to avoid losing units to Havoc fire. Don't move much.|
|Top of third. Plague Zombie mob moves onto objective. Daemon Prince breaks off and attemps to assault War Walkers. No Overwatch shots hits. Prince doesn't roll high enough to make assault. One Viper is taken out from Plague Marine squad.|
|Top of fifth. Daemon Prince assaults War Walker squad. One War Walker remains. Two Havocs take out Falcon. Plague Marine squad assaults Eldrad and friends.|
|Bottom of fifth. Fire Prism takes out one Havoc. That squad should've made 3 Morale rolls. Hopefully I'll remember next time. Eldrad and friends are holding their own against the new squad of Plague Marines.|
Roll of the die for turn 6. 1 comes up.
|Plague Zombies on Objective Chaos Space Marines 3 VP total 4 VP.|
|Dire Avengers on objective 3 VP.|
|Linebreaker Chaos Space Marines 1 VP total 5 VP|
Was too conservative with my Eldar in this game. Something I should've done was looked carefully at his deployment and deploy everything on one side of the board so I would have my entire army only fighting half. Heavily considering losing the Harlequins. Not sure what I would put in.
Bryan did a great job with his army. It moved and worked together. Found it very effective. He did a great job utilizing his army was one whole unit.
Finally a win for Bryan's Plague Marine army!
Lose 3-5 Chaos Space Marines
