First win!

Well, Loq and I got or first solid victory…


She brought Her Templars:


Terminator Squad w/ 2 CML and Tank Hunter

Large squad of CCW/Pistol Marines

2 Line Squads, 1 ML, 1 Las Cannon



I brought the list I played last week, more or less..


10 man Terminator squad w/ 2 Psycannon, Banner

DN w/ 2 TLAC and Psybolt ammo

Dreadknight w/ Teleporter and Heavy Inferno


Facing IG/Eldar with (from memory, so probably not accurate)

Seer Council on Jetbikes

Autarch on Jetbike

3 Squads of Jetbike Guardians w/ 2 Shuriken Cannon/squad

2 of the Hellhound variants with the Multi Meltas, forget the name…

3 Leman Russ Demolishers with LC and Plasma Sponsons


Setup was Spearhead, kill points… They had turn one, so after they set up, I set up my Terminator squad w/ Librarian in cover strung out along our front… Her line squads set up in cover along with the Tank Hunter Terminators… The poor HtH squad set up in the open, and they died early on, but they bought the rest of the army time, absorbing a LOT of fire allowing my Terminators the opportunity to set themselves up in cover at the center of the board… From here, over the course of 4 turns, their Psycannon accounted for a number of vehicle kills while the Librarian was finally able, on turn 4 to defeat the Farseer and prevent the Fortune power… The Seer Council got stuck in HtH with one of the Line Squads, they held and the Terminators she had with Power Fists came in to swat them out of existence. The Dreadknight jumped about and killed a few things, despite whiffing against one of the Hellhound… Still impressed, though I think I will have to run the Heavy Psycannon to test them…


I think that I will have to run the Knights at 1500 or 1850 to get a true feel for the army… 1000 is just too small to really field much. My DA force was much better at this level I think… I think if I end up going to the team tournament at Adepticon next year, it will be my Consecrators that hit the field…


  1. Good for you guys. I think if my partner would have remembered to show up the night might have gone a bit differently for me. I was woefully unprepared for the spanking the Blood Angels/IG gave me. I need to be better prepared to make changes to my list at the last moment.

    And it didn't help that I made a few big mistakes during the game, such as not adding enough dice to the Wraithlord when it was fighting the Dreadnaught.


  2. Yes, the IG and BA codexes are both on the very high end as far as power these days (disclaimer, I play both of them too...), and so facing them as a returning player from a "previous edition" combined with a codex that frankly is on the lower end of the "power scale" (yes, I also play Eldar :-)) is extraordinarily difficult... The WL/DN matchup is usually fairly even, though the WL's lack of an INV save like the new Dreadknight I think does count against it pretty heavily here... Str 10 attacks as a MC though are pretty nice, so a lot of it will come down to sheer luck as you roll on the vehicle damage table... 'course, just my opinions as always :-)
