I hail from Australia and thought i would start sharing the love and get people excited again
As we are getting ready next month for a Round Robin 1000 mini tourney id though id try and get some games in this week. Below is my Tyranids taking on a good Friends Imperial Guard
Hope you Guys enjoy and keep this edition following
We planned for a 1250 point battle and low and behold I was able to roll a 5 ....... Time for a Nid Attack
Nids deployed first , with the guard getting first turn as described by the special scenario. The guardsmen received minefield which was established in front of the Hq and heavy bolter teams, and there special forces executing a covert op behind enemy lines were able to delay the Carnifex.
Not to be outdone, the bugs hit back with there own strategies , the calexus took a wound, the guardsmen squad having lost there Sargent was now lead by " jones ", the Ogyrns Demolisher tank and even heavy bolter squad proceed with caution to the main line in case of any ambushes, and would not deploy until turn two.
The Soulless culexus jumped up onto the pillar and since being pretty much invisible proceeded to launch a Psyk-out grenade at the hive tyrant, which now could not cast anything this turn.
The guards opened up with little force that had actually made it to the battle line, 3 gaunts and a Genestealer fell, the culexus powered up his animus speculum and blasted the hive tyrant three time, it took a wound whilst nullifying one shot the and the third missing the mark.
With much of the guard being delayed this seemed to confuse the H Mind briefly, until the Hive tyrant focused the swarm to sense the nulls presence, what can I say when you need to roll a one ....... So the swarm pressed forwards hoping that this thing may follow
Gargoyles flew high, and the lictor was just short of the charge of the hellhound , into the psychic phase and the culexus blasted the HT , this time taking the power catalyst
The guardsmen finally made it to the front , reinforcing and closing up the line , the Demolisher gunning all engines and sacrificing its prime weapon to blast apart the lictor closing in on the hellhound. Heavy bolters and lasgun after lasgun opened up, trying to thin the relentless swarm.
The culexus now up close and personal with the HT tried to suck its soul out but was to powerful, to add insult to injury the culexus won combat and smacked it around for a bit.
The Hormaguants boosted into the Ogyrns to hold them up while the remaing Genestealers inched closer towards the kill.
The Carnifex buckled and pulverised the hellhound which the proceeded to cause a 7 inch flash back clearing out 10 Termagants but the hive tyrant and Carnifex brushing of the flames.
The Carnifex caught a demo cannon ball with its teeth reducing it to seven wound, looking up at this new meal proceeded into combat igniting the ammunition and destroying the tank
The Gargoyles flew down , and with so little guard on the look out remained unscathed and proceed to flame the back of the guards men lines, poor burning on the Nids part the guardsmen where able to return fire forcing enough casualties to break.
The hive tyrant was eventually brought down after having its life drained over 2 turns of combat, but the hive adapted and evolved , a new tyrant , lictor and gargoyle unit appeared on to the field and proceed up the board at alarming speed.
Turn six finally arrived for tyranids and victory was to be assured no guardsmen stood , no tanks still rolled........ Yet the Culexus still breathed and with that the Guardsmen had Won
Was a great game, need to learn to roll ones's lolwut that culexus is very naughty
Also I would like to clarify a ruling, it does say that if the culexus does take a wound he whole targeting soulless becomes moot , would that mean from the start of the battle he would of been seen ? We just pressed on and just said as it happens before the battle he just acts as normal but rereading his rules I'm starting to think its just when he takes a wound no matter when.
