Age of strife on the road meetup Spring 2011

Postby killmaimburn » Fri Mar 11, 2011 7:50 pm

Well I've gone to this one, and you know I'm the only one who remembers a camera.
So here you go.
Friday, Kings lot of redcar raiders are there.
Quickly ditch idea of normal game with al/bane for a giant mega battle of us all.
1500 points per player 3 players a side.

Me -Bloodhammer (shed load of missiles, shed load of fnp FC assualt marines with a 5+cover), Rich(?) old skool chaos (landraider with 210 point sorceror)3 rhino squads and Moo? Lots of orks in trukks (some nobs)and nothing else.
Vs
Si (reasonable guard..inc roughriders and plasma leman) Al/banes GT Bloodangels (landraider+ stormraven) and....king (3 vendettas swarms of punishers and pask etc).

King choose a table and a fluff story;
*That the river bed was difficult and dangerous but *their* flying transports would be uneffected (I spotted and pulled out the rule he was about to introduce that chimera chassis as amphibious vehicles were also immune to his punitive rules :) )
ANd battle did commence (chaos player sat back..when I left at 6.30 he'd only lost 2 obliterators and a vindicator)
Ork player was storming.
KIngs side (somehow) really got caught on the back foot...???..?? :)

I had to leave, and those nice folks from up north let me take my final shots out of phase, and I shot down the vendetta and chimera contesting the middle..With my camo cloaks safely on ours (with FNP and 15 man of devs) the middle mostly orky (and 1000 points of chaos) and I think the orks had been pushed off the enemy objective.
But it was still V early into turn 6..so might have all changed after I left.
EDIT update.. apparently we won, holding centre with orks and chaos, rear by me, and front contested by our orks. Awesome.

Darned fine game..I have absolutely no idea how we did so well (although orky players 4+ saves first two turns were totally amazing).

SATURDAY>>> (Well everyone elses)
You can find pics of you all here.
gallery/v/killmaimburn/meet11spr/saturday/Othergames/

and here
gallery/v/killmaimburn/meet11spr/saturday/Othergames/?g2_page=2

Batreps and pictures of games I was involved in to follow,tomorrow (although basically we suck, with an bitter edge of how can 5 melta guns and 5 (successfully hit) krak grenades fail to do more than stun a rhino AND how can 3 melta guns a multimelta and a T/L lascannon fail to even do that to a dreadnought????)
Remember the thumbnails have cropped a lot... feel free to use all pics to your own ends.. put them into a post and tell us who was whuppin who and how etc.

Cheers for the pics mate, though I seem to be pulling one of the weirdest faces ever in one ...

And I thought I was the only person who could manage to roll 9 dice and not get higher than a '2' on any of them! :lol:
Looks like my last set of armor saves for my terminators! :(

Saturday looked a bit like this, from my point of view ...

... yes, the a.o.s. get together on "battle psycher freak out Saturday."
One two, one two, can anybody hear me over the laughter of my opponents???? :cry:

Vendettas suck! My two Vendettas floated around blasting away at vehicles and did zip. How can 6 lascannons so utterly fail to do anything? Roll to hit, ok. Roll to penetrate, so so. Pretty much every time I managed to hit I either rolled 1s and 2s for penetration, or the vehicles had cover as they were hiding from the Vendettas and managed to make their saves. The two (yes, only two!) times in 3 games I managed to actually roll on the damage table, the best I did was to stun a Chimera. Argh!

The only thing I managed to kill was in the first game when my Stormtroopers hit their mark and dropped right behind Sami's Vindicator and then melta'd it from the rear. Next turn they were wiped out though, and in the other 2 games they did nothing.

End result - Slate and I left before the results were announced. :oops:

Rules questions thread here..

BATREPS FROM THE DOUBLES TOURNEY
GAME1
First batrep of the doubles tourney.
I have 1 godhammer landraider (6 man 1 flamer assualt squad) 1 Crusader landraider with 5 man melta and inferno pistol)
James has 2 hellhounds (squadron) 2 mech vets and leman russ demolisher.

Opponents (Herne and richy) have
nurgle demon prince
Possessed vindicator
Plasma dreadnought
3-4 squads of CSM.

We set up castled on left expecting to be able to take out some of the shots from the vindie (but fail to scrape it ever)
I believe LH wanted to honey trap them killing my landraider for his hellhounds being able to do stuff in the mech game on the disembarked passengers.. and we did do some tit for tat damage.

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

This picture incapsulates the dice gods.. on the right we have the crusader (previous turn I believe when DP was further back and in better arc) failing (with all weapons bar left IIRC) to inflict one wound on the demon prince.. and on the far left a mech vet squad of melt in double dice range, a landraider lascannon and a landraider MM failing to stun a dreadnought..We could have got a draw if we'd stunned it..after that it was just honourable mention to try to keep one objective (which I managed) against their 2.
ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
With his last troop unit LH tries to chase into contest one (weakened) CSM squad on an objective.. but dice gods.. no casulties to his squad being mungled and running off..leaving squad as was on objective.ImageImageHernes utterly safe always objectiveImage
Somehow (?) it was always in the bag for the opposition and from turn 2 we just just struggling to try for a draw constantly (and we failed at that) fair nuff.
