PostSubject: Bleeding Hand V.s. Imperium   Fri Jul 14 2017, 02:11

So I had a friendly 1850 game today versus a chap at my LGS. We had to call it on turn 2 due to a fussy baby but it was pretty clear by then where the game was going.

It was a straight killpoints game with a spearhead deployment. I finished first and he did not seize.
My list was

YNARRI BATTALION

Yvraine
Visarch

2×5 warriors w/blaster
2×5 wyches w/sword/agoniser (respectively) and blast pistol

2 ravagers w/3× DL

Hemlock

2× raider w/DL

Venom

DRUKHARI VANGUARD

Succubus w/glaive & blast pistol

2×5 incubi
2× Sslyth

2× venom

His list from memory was:

IMPERIUM BATTALION

Celestine
Draigo

2× dreadknight w/ hammer, heavy incinerator, heavy psycannon

2×ravenwing bikes? W/2× grav gun

2×5 grey knight terminators w/ various nemesis weapons
5 scouts with heavy bolter

5 devastators w/4×lascannon

Ravenwing dark talon??(flyer)


TURN 1
BLEEDING HAND
I shuffled my vehicles around denying his deepstrikers and moved my hemlock forward.
Psychic sees conceal go off.
Shooting speared his flyer for first blood and took out 2 scouts with venom fire.
No assaults.

IMPERIUM
Celestine and his bikes move forward. Everything else stands still. All his terminators, 1 dreadknight and draigo deepstrike 9" in front of my lines.
Psychic phase he gates the other dreadknight forward and casts a plethora of powers causing a few mortal wounds to my vehicles.
His shooting from the dreadknights is brutally strong and leaves every raider and ravager with some damage.
He proceeds to make 2 11" charges with his terminators (into a raider and ravager) although my ravager guns down 2! In overwatch. Both dreadknights and Draigo fail to charge.
The assault phase leaves my ravager with 2 wounds and my raider with 4. Very lucky.

TURN 2
DRUKHARI
In movement I jump out all my incubi and characters facing terminators. My vehicles all shuffle to the right flank away from Celestine and Draigo except 1 venom to eat overwatch for a squad. My hemlock flys back into my lines to block charge lanes.
Psychic powers are all focused on mortal wounding the 5 man termies and kill 2.
Shooting kills 1 dreadknight and a terminator.
All my incubi and characters (and a venom) make their charges, 1 sslyth takes 3 wounds to a flamer I didn't know he had. I start with my incubi into the 3 man terminators and cut down 1 I believe. The succubus kills another. He interrupts with his other squad and swings into my incubi killing 3. The Visarch, sslyth and remaining incubi kill the 2 left and soulburst a smite into the remaining dreadknight.

IMPERIUM
We called it in the middle of the turn because his baby had a diaper emergency, he moves around a little, lining a charge up on my warlord. Guns down 2 remaining incubi and I soulburst my unwounded Sslyth into celestine before she can shoot or charge. He puts 6 wounds total on my hemlock. Draigo charges a venom. We called it here.

At this point he has celestine and Draigo, a wounded dreadknight, 6 bikes, 5 devs and 3 scouts.
I have lost 5 incubi and most likely a venom and sslyth if he had swung.

End result was a fast track to tabling. All in all, I like the hemlock a lot and I love Dark Lances.

Who won? It didn't seem like he had lost so much as to be tabled.

excellent write up, the battle rep section has been pretty empty lately, much new posts compared to the other sections at least.
