ITS PAGE 3 (tries really hard not to post boobies)
KMB vs Martin (dragons tears)
1500

I took a bloodhammer variant i made up that morning

Libby jump pack bloodlance shield.
Priest CCW BP
Priest Jump pack power weapon CCW
Priest Jump pack power weapon inferno pistol
10man assualt squad 2 melta Fist
10man assualt squad 2 melta Fist
5 Scouts camo cloaks 1 missile launcher
2 MM attack bikes
1 Tornado
5 devs signum 4 missile
5 devs signum 4 missile
5 devs signum 4 missile

FIRST- on list- KING said "you made that to beat me [vendettas] din ja!!", Wolflord havoc said I'd taken stuff deliberately to remove his landraider when actually I'd taken it in an attempt to try to draw against chimera spam and certain types of hordes (eat my meq FNP)..so from that I'm guessing its as all comers/balanced as it gets :D

He took (by memory) Ravenwing
Samiel on jetbike
Full squad 2 melta,fist MM attack bike+ HBasscan tornado
Full squad 2 flamer,fist HB attack bike+ HBasscan tornado
Full squad 1Melta 1 Flamer,power weapon HB attack bike+ HBasscan tornado
+TYphoon with melta.


Mission was 12 inchs in killpoints, (so thats erm...pitched battle and annihilation I guess).

I set up my devs+ scouts and naked priest on a very tricky piece of terrain (took me absolutely ages not helped by the fact I'd left 6 models vital to the list at home)And fast stuff front and centre to react.
He put his skimmers +jetbikebehind a big terrain piece carefully blocking all LOS,and reserved his bikes.

My turn I moved conservatively forwards as a block (with bubbles overlapping).(required a bit of running apart when I remembered sammeal having plasma cannon) whilst attack bikes zoomed into the corner for some distraction suicide.
His turn Skimmers+IC move forwards take some shots at assualt marines..(kills one attack bike)

I fire some missiles at typhoon(shaken) and IC (possibly 1 wound).I don't run straight into the trap.I stay roughly central ready to respond.

His turn 2 2 units turn up from outflank (I totally forgot about them being able to do that). Thats where the pictures begin..


He shoots at the scouts kills too many, they die no multi charging safety.On the right the bike squad doesn't get any really good dice, but the 4th ed tornado assault cannons are smoking hot I'm dying left right and centre to the amount of rends he's able to roll.

ImageImageImageImageImage


I charge him with a devastater squad and a priest on the left (along with shooting kraks from the other 2 squads). Multicharge on the right the IC and a speeder.
Get tied down in a horrible bikes vs assualt marines battle (it goes on and on, even though I had Furious Charge 1 power weapon 1 fist 1 force weapon, in the end (4 player turns later) it took the other squad as well so thats another unit charging +, 2 power weapons 2 fists 1 force weapon to finish them off (bloody dice :D)
ImageImageImageImageImage
ImageImageImageImageImageImage

I'm afraid I miss a shot that makes this make sense.. I have won combats on the right (leaving only the tornado and priest to try to take out the immobile weaponless speeder having done for the others).. My 2 assualt squads (and 3 ICS) have moved to the middle of the table. He has finally won combat against the devastator squad and must go for the other 2 to win..but that will put him in range of my giant assualt squads.. so its all about ranges wound allocating to ICs and who can consolidate to or away from whom...All to play for.
ImageImageImage

END=
I lost 5 killpoints,(luckily he didn't kill my Ics in the last combat)
He lost 6 killpoints (although he didn't lose the immobile weaponless speeder or attack bike+fist remnant)
Fairly close win to me.
Barely even lurking..

KMB vs WolflordHavoc /Jon (dragons tears)
I took
Libby jump pack bloodlance shield.
Priest CCW BP
Priest Jump pack power weapon CCW
Priest Jump pack power weapon inferno pistol
10man assualt squad 2 melta Fist
10man assualt squad 2 melta Fist
5 Scouts camo cloaks 1 missile launcher
2 MM attack bikes
1 Tornado
5 devs signum 4 missile
5 devs signum 4 missile
5 devs signum 4 missile

He took (from memory)
Wolf priest (chaplin- preferred enemy against all jump infantry)Wolf tooth necklace, melta bombs.
10man Grey hunters Mark of wulfen,Icon, fist melta flamer rhino
10man Grey hunters Mark of wulfen,Icon, fist melta flamer rhino
15ish man blood claws with wolf priest in landraider crusader
Typhoon
Tyhoon
Long fangs 1 heavy bolter 1 lascannon 3 missiles.
+razorback.
We weren't very happy with the terrain layout WLH moved it all to a corner worked out 25% then we took turns placing them.(so if you think it looks odd its because we were trying tactics pre game :D)

Mission was bases/the draw game escalation night fighting- or (Capture and control +dawn of war)

My turn1
I started with an assualt squad on but kept them babysitting near the back.
My turn one I move everything on (bar the speeder who I announce is deepstriking) difficult terrain +run moves get my dev squads into position and scouts to back up devs and sit on my objective.
I form up my wodge of bubble in the middle behind a wood. MM attack bikes zoom to cover right flank in case he goes in an unexpected direction.

His turn 1
Everything rolls on inc speeders etc.I believe (?) he was a bit surprised by dawn of war meaning nightfighting.(If correct this took alot of alpha away from his LR and typhoons) his long fangs get into position.(sat on terrain piece with objective)

My turn 2
Tornado lands and fails to hurt the landraider. Squads stay where they are+ hurt the long fangs with the devs. MM attack bikes zoom back across the board to respond to where his army actually turned up.

His turn 2
Pops landspeeder threat with exterme prejudice, kills one attack bike a few shots ping off some of my blob of assualt stuff (frags from missiles kill a good few due to my wodging)

My turn 3
In for a penny in for a pound my assualt marines jump the central wooded bit (but try to stay just out of landraider assualt range). MM attack bike moves right up to the edge of the crater of smouldering speeder (handy way to use distance) fail to pop landraider (oh noes!!!!)...oh hang on mr librarian steps up and bloodlances the crap out of it (wrecked)
ImageImage

His turn 4
his wrecked crew move forwards, and the 2 other wulf squads disembark to join them.
And there is going to be a one helluva fight!!!
ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Combat goes on and on, one wulf squad beaten runs backwards (later shot off the table with devs before they can regroup), The far side multicharge into the long fangs goes well.
Image
another steps forwards and scares the victorious assualt marines into running, he tries to chase they engage their turbo super running away to regroup and

then start running back into the wolves..
Image[ur

l=http://www.ageofstrife.com/gallery2.php?g2_itemId=44102]Image[/url]Image

I shoot at the chasing squad and then charge them with the newly regrouped turbo consolidating bloodangel wroth
Image

Combat carries on at the top, preiest and 1 gribbly remaining, my priest and his chaplin just can't hit..But being there is enough for that squad in the back ground to carry on running.

Image
WLH moves his speeder forwards to try to take out my scouts (who go to ground+cloaks +4+ cover for a 2+ and everything pings off)
Image
Combat won by him (dagnabbit) he consolidates towards his base
Image
On the left my assualt marines catch up to his only other viable squad and smack it hard.
Image
They then consolidate closer.
My back squad shoot the crap out of those 2 guys, but its hard he's moving his skimmer around to block LOS, so only 1 unit can ever see them at any one time, the others take out remnants of his army (and immobilse the speeder)
Some kids roll the dice for end games for us, and they roll high.. game makes it to turn 7.
Image
Image
Image
I have 2 objectives. to none..although could have been a draw at several points (phew)
He has 1 immobilised rhino and immobile speeder. I have full 3 dev squads +scout and a brave remnant assault squad (inc priest waving the flag)
Good game.
I'm all done now
Barely even lurking..

Hello Matt I haven't seen you in ages!

I must say, though, that this is all lies lies and more lies.
There was no meeting at gw hq and I can't fathom why you are all perpetuating this horrible myth.

While it's sometimes hard to tell on here if Nige is joking or not, I do think he might not realise who jubilex is ... :D
