JJ playing, met Bryan at Fantasy Flight for a game.
Wore my CONvergence No Hope satire t-shirt of Obama's Hope campaign.
Bryan wanted to do a different mission. One we made up together. One objective in the middle of the board then roll a scatter dice to see where it moves to. Name of the mission: Supply Drop. A scattered Relic mission. My favourite in sixth ed.
Mission: Supply Drop 1 Objective. Deployment: Dawn of War.
|Our stage of maneuvering. Medical freight in near the middle is the objective.|
Won roll off. Decided to deploy and go first.
|Deathwing and Black Templars deployment.|
Bryan rolls to seize initiative and 6 appears. He goes first.
|Top of first. Some Hunter-killer missiles and nothing. Bryan forgot to move.|
|Bottom of second. Other squad of Deathwing come down. Crusader moves to objective. Inside is a squad of Assault Terminators. Some shooting from my Land Raiders, LR hereafter, to Black Templars LR and a hull point is removed.|
|Top of third. Black Templars start high-tailing it to objective. Some shooting and a Terminator is removed.|
|Bottom of third. Moving Deathwing squad to objective and to get out of line of sight. My LR shoot at his LRC and one is removed. Squad inside takes casualties. Fails Morale and falls back. Was a bit happy.|
|Top of fourth. Black Templars take the route around the hill in attempt to stay out of LR shooting.|
|This has to be the quickest I've learned from a previous mistake. Put storm shields in front knowing that that the squad would get shot by the squad. 3++ is easier to make than 5++.|
|Bottom of fifth. Some shooting whittles down the Champions squad. Assault Terminators charge the squad. Love those Lightning Claws.|
Time to see if we are onto turn six. If game ends it will be 4-3 Black Templars. Bryan rolls the die and 5 appears. Turn six here we come.
|Top of sixth. Champion is slowly hacking away at Assault Terminators. Dreadnought with flamer and close combat weapon assaults Deathwing on objective. Two are removed.|
|Bottom of sixth. One LR shoots into troop squad in the back. Other takes a hull point from far Dreadnought. Flamer Dreadnought removes last two Deathwing. It has done a great job.|
Lose: 4-0 Black Templars.
Learning my Deathwing far faster than Grey Knights. Last game I had my storm shields in poor positions to take advantage of their 3++.
