My apologies in advance for the extremely poor grammar. After cleaning it up several times only hope this is some what coherent.
Met Bryan at Fantasy Flight. Same lists as before. Came in with a plan of attack and remembered several key abilities of my army. Such as Vindicare's Inflitrate and Psyflemen's Reinforced Aegis. The later did not please Bryan.
Wore my Pimp Slap t-shirt.
Mission: Crusade. Deployment: Hammer and Anvil. Five objectives. Three are in my deployment zone. One just outside of deployment zone and another in the middle of the field. Works with zombie army because they are going to be moving into my side of the board with most of his army. Considered leaving a couple of combat squads on objectives.
Won roll off and decided to go and deploy first.
|Our stage of massacre this evening.|
|Grey Knights deploy.|
Zombies attempted to seize and failed.
|Bottom of first. Zombies move in. Some shooting and one Psyflemen is shaken. Other heavy weapon squad pops Rhino. First Blood VP to zombies. Never remember smoke launchers.|
Bottom of fifth [unpictured]. Plague Marines arrive at aegis. Shooting takes out one Purifier from far objective. Obliterators finally take out Psyflemen. Typhus assaults Purifier squad on objective. Nurgle Warlord removes them.
Store is closed at this. We will be late leaving the store.
Loss 12-3 zombies
Bryan mentioned that I'm playing an offensive army defensively and doesn't think its working out. Gave me some ideas for deployment and how to be offensive. Had the same thoughts. Leave two combat squads on objectives in the back. While other four squads move forward and assault. He also suggested to not have any Purifiers in Rhinos. All they do is move up a little bit come out and stand there and shoot. I agree. Would like to push them farther forward. Still figuring out his army. He also suggested to keep two combat squads in reserves and walk them on to objectives
My plan worked. Not everything was set up for the plan. Which is good, helps me to work outside my box. I'm growing confident in my Grey Knights and finding my footing. Still hardly walking though.
