1st Team Test. Fail

Alright, Tuesday night Jack and I got to try out our team list. We played up at Challenge games here in Lubbock, against a good fellow named Mitchell. He brought guard and black templars, him against the two of us.

Oh gods the carnage. It was a total wipe out on our part. We got maybe 1 kill point and had I think 1 left at the end of the game.



We played annihilation with spear head deployment.

Here is our lists
HQ
230 Wolf lord 100, TW 45, SS 30, Rune armor 20, frost blade 25, Saga of the Beastslayer 10
100 Rune Priest, Tempest's Wrath, Living lightning.

Troops
120 5 grey hunters, plasmagun 10, rhino 35
80 5 grey hunters, meltagun 5

Fast Attack
235 3 TWC 150, 2 SS 60, PF 25
235 3 TWC 150, 2 SS 60, PF 25

HQ
175 CS 50, autocannon 10, Officer of the Fleet 30, 2 plasmaguns 30, chimera 55, hull heavy flamer

Troops
165 Veterans 70, 3 meltaguns 30, AC 10 chimera 55, hull heavy flamer
165 Veterans 70, 3 meltaguns 30, AC 10 chimera 55, hull heavy flamer
160 Veterans 70, 2 meltaguns 20, 1 flamer 5, AC 10 chimera 55
160 Veterans 70, 2 meltaguns 20, 1 flamer 5, AC 10 chimera 55

Heavy Support
160 Manticore

Mitchell took:
Guard: A lord commissar, 3 standard melta-vet squads, a manticore, and a stock leman russ.
Black Templars: An emperors champion with the preferred enemy vow, 7 terminators 5 LC, 2 Th/SS with furious charge, a venerable dread with a lascannon, missile launcher and tank hunter, and 2 minimum squads of troops.

This was a slaughter. Running my thunderwolves with lord first turn got them just into charge range of the terminators, they all died. Also during his first shooting phase the manticore took out two of the other thunder wolves, the powerfist/SS rider was the only model to survive the game.

Everything just went down hill from there. We tried to put up a defense, but those terminators were in our back lines and chasing the wolf lord off the table, he never ran fast enough to get away.

However, the lone powerfist cavalry model immobilized the land raider, allowing vets to kill it( our only kill point I think), he also killed both of the black templar troops choices on his own.

At one point he passed about 5 or 7 3++ invulnerable saves all at the same time. It was awesome.

  1. Basically nothing went our way. But we had a lot of laughs at just how bad it was.

    But we learned, need to focus on AV 14 a little more.
