JJ playing, met Shawn at Fantasy Flight for a game.
Wore my utilikilt and VNV Nation Automatic hoodie.
Mission: Emperor's Will. Deployment: Vanguard Strike.
Won roll off decided to deploy and go first. Shawn said this is going to be a fun game and we might know by turn three who's going to win the game.
|Our theatre of tank movement.|
|Deathwing deployment. Crusader has Deathwing Assault Terminators. Four lightning claws and two hammers. Belial and two 5 man terminators are deep striking in first turn.|
|Imperial Guard deployment.|
Shawn attempted to seize and failed.
|Bottom of first. Leman Russ that was immobilised in previous turn is abandoned and every other Leman Russ points their attention to Belial and friends. Only Belial remains with one wound left.|
Die roll to see if we go into turn six. 4 appears. Here comes turn six and my chance to win the game.
|Top of sixth. A lot of Land Raider shooting, plenty of misses, and only 4 Veterans remain. They go to ground for some save, doesn't help. They make their Leadership roll both times. Lone Terminator takes out last Punisher.|
|Bottom of sixth. Sentinels shoot missiles at lone Terminator and his armour continues to remain strong. Six Veterans arrive to secure objective. There are two squads, one 4 other 6. I need turn seven to possibly pull off a win.|
Roll the dice and 2. Game ends Imperial Guard win.
Should've tank shocked a Land Raider onto the objective. Veterans couldn't have been with 3" and thus denied them it and won the game. Wasn't til later talking with Shawn about it. He said he was surprised that I didn't so that. Told him I thought about it in turn 4 but forgot and said they could still capped the objective because the Land Raider hull isn't 3" wide. Then measured and said could've capped it because the veterans can't assault the tank and would've won. Something to remember for next time.
Lose 4-2 Imperial Guard.
