JJ playing, met Shawn at Fantasy Flight wore my money is evil math equation t-shirt.
Really like the frequency of gaming with Shawn over the last several months. Getting know him more. Building our relationship. Genuinely good stuff.
Mission: Big Guns Never Tire, Deployment: Dawn of War, Objectives 4.
|On this episode of "I don't know where to deploy."|
Won roll off. Decided to deploy and go first.
|Grey Knights deploy.|
Deployment was the oddest deployment I've ever seen. Eldar reacting to my deployment I felt gave me a huge advantage in the game.
Shawn attempted to seize, nope.
This is it. Game done, another loss in my GK books. Shawn asks who wants to roll the dice. I decide to, 6 comes up! Onto turn six. The game was won or lost based on that die roll.
Shawn rolls the dice to see the game continues 1. Game ends. Psyflemen remained on same objective since beginning of the game. Purifers on another with line breaker 7 VP. Jetbike on one objective with First Blood and Slay Warlord. Win! I ran around the table and gave Shawn a hug thanking him.
Win 7-5 Grey Knights.
Really learning how to use this army. Several things occurred to me from previous games and what not to do in this game. Exercised those thoughts and it paid off well. Felt the range of the Grey Knight shooting was a true advantage in this game. Eliminating key threat, War Walkers, early helped to reduce stress later in the game and focus on the goal. Objectives.
Told Shawn while we were wrapping up that I want to pull Eldrad, his practiced list. Feel I'm more ready for that list than before. Shawn asked if I was sure and that he didn't want to see me cry. Quite funny.
Honestly felt this should've been Shawn's game. Even though he wasn't running his practiced list. Had he deployed like he usually does it would've been much closer with an Eldar win.
