SM (Raptors) vs SW + IG 1850 Dead lock 7th


A grudge rematch against Krom again for the humiliating defeat in the last game using my HH Iron warriors. This time I would be using SM with raptors chapter tactics with some FW units thrown in.
No detail turn by turn battle report just a short summary with some pictures. 


Wolves unleash!

SW stormfang (proxy) zoom in for the kill!



The game ended at turn 5 with the following victory points:

SM : SW+ IG
9     :  12

SW+IG victory!

A close game and could be a draw if we did not mixed up some rules like going to ground units cannot claim objectives. Krom had chose to go to ground with his IG troops near objective #4, I would have flat out my land speeder to capture objective #4 and get 2 victory points as I have 2 capture objective #4 cards on hand. Anyway we learn as we play more games.
Luck was also on Krom side as his opening hand cards were mostly objectives in his deployment zone and he promptly got 4 points in first turn while half my cards were to capture objectives on Krom deployment zone LOL. Till next time grudge match again!

40K Apocalypse 14k battle SM + SM VS Eldar + DA

Played another Apocalypse game organize by the gaming group. Due to personal obligations we only have 4 players turning up in the end and decided to go with 2 vs 2. 

7000k a side with a total 14k point battle. 

Battle: Exterminatus !
SM VS DA/Eldar


More pictures and detail turn by turn report can be found in the gaming group website - Anything but ones blog spot.

Castigator Knight titan Close combat with DA terminator
Castigator knight titan was subsequently charged by DA imperial knight titan and with only 1 hull point left, the castigator exploded from the imperial knight hammer of wrath attack. The apocalyptic explosion caught the imperial knight titan killing it instantly which trigger another apocalyptic explosion! Miraculously the DA terminator (pic above) survived both the apocalyptic explosions!!!

Single Stern guard capturing Eldar/DA objective

After around 6 hours of gaming, we ended the game at turn 3.

Strategic victory points

SM victory !

Was a close game and SM won by 1 SVP.
Looking forward to the next apocalypse game and higher points apocalypse battle - more carnage!

Iron warriors (HH) VS Space wolves + Ultra Marines (7th) 1850

Had a game of 40k with gaming buddy Krom for the first time since 2012. Didn't get to play a game against him as I was really busy with work for the past years and he went to the US for phd studies.

I will be trying out the Horus heresy Iron warriors list. Krom will be using the 7th edition Space Wolves book with a unit of ultra marines (bikers) allies.

We played the eternal war mission: Emperor's will (rolled) since Krom had not been playing 40k for years and not familiar with the 7th edition rules.

Deployment: Long table edge (rolled) but we decided to go with dawn of war deployment for less hassle. If we had go with long table edge, it will be to my advantage as my shooty army will have more turns to shoot before the SW can reach my lines.
Arjac and terminators drop pod in to IW lines on turn 1
  • With night fight in play on turn 1, around 1/3 of IW shooting was saved by cover saves. Didn't managed to neutralised any threats. 
  • All the Space wolves units rush head long into the IW lines, Arjac and terminators were only able to glance some of IW vehicles. No unit was destroyed in either turn 1. 



Storm Fang proxy (Valkyrie) zoom in to deliver death
Turn 2

  • IW concentrated all their shooting on Arjac and terminators but the Anvil of Fenris just wont die and a single terminator survived. 
  • Most of the Space Wolves and Ultra marines (bikers) were just within charge range of  IW units.

Turn 3 for IW was their last ditch effort to kill the most important threats, Arjac was finally gunned down but the bikers and thunder wolves cavalry were still alive and ready to charge. SW wasted no time in charging with all their CC units. The storm fang drop off a unit of blood claws and their 39 attacks was enough to wreck the predators. The storm fang was very deadly with its arsenal of weapons and versatility, but lousy rolls by Krom kept the IW vehicles alive for a little longer.
The Valkyrie proxy was used as he just received his storm fang from the store on the day of game.  

Iron warriors charged by Wolf lord on Thunder wolf on turn 7
With SW charging into close combat on turn 3, it was a matter of time before the thunder wolves cavalry destroy everything. The bikers wiped the Rapier squad in 3 phase of CC with lousy rolls on both sides and proceed to wreck the basilisk and flat out back to their deployment zone to cap the objective. The thunder wolves cavalry unit was destroyed in the end leaving only the wolf lord to mop up the rest of the stragglers.

Game end on turn 7 with SW: 17 VP to IW(HH): 7 VP.

I only have 2 models left at the end of game.

End game thoughts:
Another defeat! though not the usual tabled game but its either I sux real bad or the 30k HH list cant compete with 40k list. Scheduling another game with Krom before he goes back, this time I'm going to use a 40k book and see how it goes.

7th Edition Apocalypse Game


Had my first Apocalypse game after 11-12 years in the hobby. Got the chance to organize the game with ABO gaming buddies. 

Using 7th edition 40K rules. The game was planned to be played at around 10k points per side with 6 players. Due to Nurgle striking 2 players, we had to play the game with 6.5k points per side with 4 players.
Got to thank Titan Games LGS for hosting the game.

Imperium 
IG - 4k
Flesh tearers (BA) - 2.5k

Chaos
IG - 4k
Alpha Legion (30k) - 2.5k

The game was a blast. Never had such crazy fun in 40k for awhile, with super heavies failing spectacularly, daemons summoning left and right, rampaging knight titans, mass air battles between the IG. The action never stop.. well before turn 4. I will let Jaeroler post the more detail post on the game. Here are some pictures..

The heat blast from the dread claw was too much for tzeentch herald and blood letter.

Supreme Commander "Kim" last moments

Conclusion
We ended the game at turn 4 with the final result concluded at turn 6:
Imperium : Chaos (points)
17 - 12
Imperium Victory.

The 3 knight titans brought by the Imperium side were unstoppable, rampaging through the battlefield killing whatever they came into contact. Future Apoc games will surely bring counter measures to kill off those knight titans before they can deal devastating damage in melee.

Some nonsensical pictures below..

One of the best CKT I had for awhile
