This game was against Will from the club. Will has been playing about as long as I have and is only 18 yrs old! He is a great painter and player. My "red" army was originally Wills!
The mission was Dawn of War, The Scouring. We had objectives placed and under them was a piece of paper noting the points of each objective. Roughly, Wills army consisted of a Lash Sorcerer, Demon Prince, 2 Obliterator Squads, Defiler and some Allied demons. Plague Marines were his basic trooper.
I was using the Traveller this time instead of a normal Overlord. I am using the three barges as annihilation barges for more firepower. No scarabs this time, instead I ran 3 heavy destroyers. These and the wraiths came in handy as scoring units.
|Turn 1-I start to inch over towards my objectives and take long shots at what I can.|
|I move my close combat troops into position to attack both these objectives.|
|Turn 2-Daemons deep strike and move up!|
|The left flank was wild because it was open and he focused a lot of obliterator fire here. This pic might be my favorite of 6th ed so far! Sadly the warriors could not cause enough wounds!|
|The right flank went my way. Wraiths could not be stopped by plague marines. They were tough to kill but they tied up most of Will's scoring units.|
|After the initial assault cleared, I decided to bring in bigger guns!|
|Turn 4- I can freely move around after destroying most threats. The unfortunate part for will is I had no way killing his defiler up until this point, but he missed his shot each round.|
|It took close combat with the Traveller to finally beat the last daemon down.|
|end turn 5 the game securely in my hands.|
