|Completely forgot Cleansing Flame. grrrr|
Met Bryan for some one-on-one time and a bite to eat before the game.
Headed over to Fantasy Flight after. Wore my Whipsters bowling shirt.
Mission: Scouring. Deployment: Vanguard Strike.
Won roll off decided to deploy and go first.
|Grey Knights deployment|
Zombies tried to seize initiative. Grey Knights continue to go first.
|Bottom of first. Retaliation. Lascannon team takes out Vindicare. Deployed him with army not after zombies deployed. Have to remember Infiltrate next time. Crew Shaken on one Psyflemen. Couple of Purifiers removed.|
|Top of second. More shooting into zombies. Complete waste of rounds with Purifiers. Repair Rhino immobilized due to going through difficult in first turn. Psyflemen start shooting at heavy weapon teams which make their saves.|
|Bottom of second. Zombies continue their march toward the front line. This noise is what got in my way this game. Next game won't. Heavy weapon team takes down a Psyflemen.|
|Top of third. Decided to push forward. Assault zombies and forgot Cleansing Flame. Doh! Finally doing something against those pesky weapon teams in the zombie deployment zone. One Obliterator removed.|
|Top of fourth. Two Purifiers are slowly whittling down zombies. Not much though. Probably faster if I would've remembered Cleansing Flame.|
|Bottom of fourth. Last Psyflemen is finally removed. Crowe is removed due to some great shooting from Lascannons. Need to copy heavy weapons target priority in the future. There are 9 Purifiers and 3 Rhino's left.|
|Top of fifth. Somehow mis-pic. This is actually bottom of fifth from different angle.|
|Bottom of fifth. Six Purifiers remain and one Rhino. Store closes in 4 mins. Another turn and perhaps a tabling would've occurred.|
Loss 6-1 Zombies
What I learned:
*Deploy second to face only half the army. Or alpha strike against primary targets if going first.
*Don't bother shooting at zombies.
*Copy heavy weapons target priority.
*Take out heavy weapon teams and Plague Marines.
*When zombies get close to assaulting put rhinos infront of them.
*Remember Cleansing Flame against zombies! Hell it's the reason I want to play Purifiers.
*Infiltrate, dur. Deploy assassin after opponent deploys. Deploy him in a position to take out HQs while out of sight of heavy weapon shooting.
