Welcome to our first Dissenting Dice battle report.
This evening Jack and I played a 1000 point game, Codex Marines v. Dark Eldar.
For preliminary matters, we rolled Capture and Control (3 objectives) with Night Fight, I rolled +1 WS on my drugs. I rolled and got to choose, I chose to go second in Dawn of War.
Note: The big white cubes are objectives, and the white paper squares are Razorbacks. Also each photo is from the end of the turn.
Marines 1 :
M Jack brought on his second razorback, his iron clad dread, his rifleman dread, and his drop dread.
S Nothing to shoot at, so things ran if able.
Dark Eldar 1:
M I brought the two ravagers and the raider on, archon and bloodbrides disembarked and dropped Webway Portal.
S Raider hits and fails to pen the razorback. Left ravager stuns the razorback, and right ravager shakes the rifleman.
M Ironclad and drop dreads move closer to the action, Master of the Forge moves for a better firing angle.
S A hunter killer missile from the ironclad destroys the left ravager on a 6. MoF deviates off of the bloodbrides, and the rifleman hits the right ravager twice to but fails to penetrate.
Dark Eldar 2:
M A unit of wracks comes in from reserve and moves up. The bloodbrides and archon move towards the marines.
S The raider stuns the razorback, the ravager then wrecks it, dumping the marines out in front of the hungry wracks. The wracks manage to catch 5 marines with a liquifier gun with an ap of 5, and two more with a template with ap 3, three wounds were caused and then saved, none from the ap 3, though one wrack was killed by his squads template. The bloodbrides run 3 inches.
A The wracks assault the tactical squad, dragging down one marine, only to have on of their own pulped by a powerfist. Feel No Pain s great until you don't have it.
M Drop dread and Ironclad move towards the action, MoF hightails it out of charge range.
S The drop dread runs 6 inches, HK from the ironclad blows up the other ravager. MoF fires at the bloodbrides again, deviating and only killing 1. The rifleman fires at the raider, hitting 3 times, 1 is saved by the flicker field, the raider is destroyed.
A Wracks do 6 wounds, killing 3, the powerfist sarge smashes 1 wrack, the marines make their morale check.
Dark Eldar 3:
M Second unit of wracks and warriors come on. Wracks move up, the warriors hide behind the WWP, I think you can do that. Bloodbrides lose 2 to the dangerous terrain of the razorback wreck.
S Warriors blaster misses the razorback, bloodbrides and archon run.
A Arhcon and bloodbrides charge, archon handily dispatches the last two marines and gives the bloodbrides their first pain token. Bloodbrides and wracks consolidate into the ruins.
