Battle at X10741I

The sneaky renegade guards led by Commander Proximius had stolen Dante's precious GOLD BARS and crash landed on X1074I an abandoned research world to flee from the pursuing Blood Angels strike-force. The BA strike cruiser managed to catch up with the traitors and pinpoint their crash site. It hang in the ice planet's low orbit and prepared to sortie. The BA strike-force led by Librarian Unphaeton vowed to purge the foul traitors, destroy all their xenos artifacts and recover the HOLY Relic- Dante GOLD BARS.

Ok enough with the nonsense,  Had been a few months since I play against Jaeroler IG list. I had faced this IG list numerous times. I'm trying out a part descent of angels part DC rush list. Using Vassal this time for the battle report. Some information maybe inaccurate as I did not take notes during the game. Enjoy.

Mission: Capture and control
Deployment: pitched battle
objectives: 2 ( yellow and pink)

Deployment BA:
-Stormraven with DC/DC dread/Chaplain at the left hugging table edge. 
-Razorback with librarian and assault squad. 
-Baal predator with flame storm turret.

Deployment IG: (may not be accurate)
-Chimera all have 3 melta vets, except 2 chimeras on the centre right with 10 psykers each. 
-Heavy wep team is 2x lascannon and 1 autocannon. Attached heavy wep team are lascannons.
-10 ratlings in the ruins
-20? troops near IG objective (Dante gold bars)

BA turn 1:
-Baal predator flat out scout move and move 12 to flame the troops.
-Drop pod furioso with frag cannon shoot some troops, killing 11 guardsmen.
-Stormraven fire all 4 missiles, killing 2 heavy wep team making them flee and wep destroyed the chimera.
-Razorback lascannon fluff to hit.

IG turn 1:
-Melta vets in chimera destroyed baal predator.
-Combine lascannons and melta vets on the left chimera destroyed both furioso and drop pod.

BA turn 2:
-10 assault marines with priest DoA down and destroyed a 10men melta vets chimera. The explosion killed 2 vets and 1 assault marine.
-5 veteran vanguard heroic intervention and wiped the heavy wep team in centre.
-Stormraven flat out towards the IG line.

IG turn 2:
-wep destroyed chimera with melta vets shot the stormraven down, explosion killing 1 DC.
-1 Leman Russ demolisher came in from reserve and blast the DC, killing 3 more DC.
-1 chimera with melta vets came in from reserve and shot the veteran vanguard killing 4.
-Vanguard sgt were shot to bits by combine melta vets and lascannon fire.
-6 assault marines and 1 priest died to snipers, soul storm and melta vets fire, the surviving 3 assault marines flee due to weaken resolve and panic.

BA turn 3:
-Rage caused DC and DC dread to charge the wep destroyed chimera. DC wreck the chimera. melta vets pass pinning.
-3 assault marines continue fleeing due to 6" within enemy, but lucky melta shot from them destroyed a psyker chimera and killed 5 psykers.

IG turn 3:
-2nd Leman Russ demolisher came in from reserve.
-Melta vets and demolisher cannon wiped the DC and DC dreadnought.
-Snipers killed the remaining 3 assault marines.
-Melta vets chimera in centre and psykers chimera move nearer to BA objective.

BA turn 4:
-Razorback lascannon wreck the centre melta vets chimera.
-Librarian used fear of darkness and make them panic and flee.

IG turn 4:
-Lascannons wreck the razorback. 
-Remaining lascannons and soul storm killed librarian and 2 assault marines.
-Assault marines were fearless due to blood-thirst. 
-Centre melta vets rallied.

I would skip turn 5 and go straight to turn 6.
BA turn 6:
-Bolt pistols killed 1 vets.
IG turn 6:
-Centre melta vets kept running towards BA objective and psyker squad chimera zoom in to contest the BA objective.
-Jaeroler decided to be funny and shoot his demolisher cannon(tank was nearer) at the 3 assault marines and end up destroying the psyker chimera killing 5 psykers in the process.
-Game continue to turn 7...

I  decided to call it here as I have no ways of winning and we were just playing for fun in turn 6 to blow some stuffs ups. After 2 games with this list, I seriously cant deal with mech armies... My list consist of all the fun units I like to use in game, but it had a hard time playing against mech armies. I need to change my list to include more anti-vehicle stuffs, hope that I can make minor changes to my list to make it more effective. I don't like to play razorbacks spam which are effective in dealing with mech armies, but kind of boring... 

Commander Proximius was victorious in the skirmish and get to keep the shiny gold bars for now...  Proximius laughed hysterically and hugged the gold bars tightly as he watched the 3 surviving blood angels retreat, he continued caressing the gold bars and silently whispered "my preciousssss you are mineee, yesssss... "  LOL!

In May, the Tomb Kings army will be receiving new models as well as an army book.

Lightning shall sunder the skies, the rivers will flow with blood and war will come to the land. The legions of the long-dead kings shall once more rise eternal in conquest, and death shall ride beside them."
