So in my last post I mentioned I was going to be playing in a Crusade of Fire Campaign. I posted my list in my previous post so you can get an idea of what I am running. Not the most competitive, but can pack a serious punch against some armies while being very resilient. Much more of a fun list and a list of models I can paint and take a break from painting and building for all of the tournaments out there.
For starters, there was 18 players who showed up to play! WOW! As we did flag placement, I was stuck placing last because on the 3D6 roll off, I got 4! Yes 4 on 3D6. So I was left with no territories that had anything on them. However, Dave the organizer allowed me to challenge first and I challenged an Ork player who was in control of the 1 Hive City on all of the 4 planets.
His name was Barry and he brought this list:
Warboss, Bike, Claw
10 Mega Nobs w/ assorted equipment
10 Nob Bikers w/ assorted equipment
5 Koptas w/ TL-Rokkits
Bastion w/ Icarus
At first I was worried because those Nob Bikers and Mega Nobs could just tear me up. But I had first turn and allowed him to come to me. He did and simply got obliterated. Nob Bikers got a charge off on a 5 man Wraithguard squad and wiped them and then proceeded to be assaculted by another 5 man squad, 2 Wraithlords, and my Wraithknight and got wiped. The 10 Wraithguard and 3 Seers shot and then assaulted and wiped the Nobs out. My Swooping Hawks leveled the Tank Bustas as well and my Wraithseer kill the Koptas.
I was fortunate because in the next game Barry brought 120+ Boyz and I don't know how I would have faired against that!
Next game was against Amy and her Chaos Space Marines. She is new to Chaos but definitely not new to 40k. She brought:
Lvl 3 Sorc w/ TA, Familiar
5 Termies, Reaper, x2 Combi melta
10 Thousand Son, Rhino
5 Havocs, x4 Autocannons
So another army that wants to get close. She came straight forward with the Raider and I killed in Turn 1 along with all of the Zerks and Kharn. Her T-Sons would kill a couple Guard but then be bogged down with a Wraithlord for the game. Her Termies and Sorc dropped and I dropped a D-Cannon on them kill 4/6 in the blast. She called it early as the shop was going to close and there wasn't much hope to come back. I gained a Manufactorum for beating her!
I am looking forward to the coming weeks and hope I can continue streaking (lol) and taking some more territories!
