SAMCRO v Ultramarines, my friends birthday battle

Posted in 40k, games with tags , , , , on February 22, 2019 by vobeskhan

So my friend Daniel and myself had arranged this game earlier in the year but various circumstances caused it to be delayed but today saw us fight it out and as it would have it, on Daniel’s birthday to boot.

We agreed to 3500 points, no Lords of War but Forge World could be allowed. We were both happy for a couple of proxy models too as we wanted to try a few options out that we don’t currently have.

Daniel brough the might of his Primaris led by Marneus Prime himself with a load of the newer models he’d gotten since our last battle before Christmas. Repulsor, predator, ironclad dread, storm raven etc.

We decided to try one of the new missions from Chapter Approved 29018, the Eternal War mission Vital Intelligence. The board was set up, the 5 objectives placed and we got Jack on his lunch break to roll for the first round to see which was the prime objective, getting a 1 smack dab in the centre of the battlefield.

Chaos was to go first and despite Daniel saying he never manages to seize the initiative, lo and behold the dice comes up as a 6! Smurfs steal the thunder and go first.

We played for 5 hours but weren’t particularly rushing, at the end of round 1 it was 4-3 to the Smurfs. After round 2 it was 6-6, but with round 3 being our last the prime objective came up once again as a 1 and the final score was 10-8 to the Smurfs.

I think at the end of the game Daniel also had more points left on the table also but my forces tried to delete as many of his units at they could on that final round, with even the helforged scorpius defeating the ironclad in combat and nomming his remains to heal back a hull point.

All in all it was a great afternoons battling with a fun opponent. Revenge will be mine!

SAMCRO Black Legion annual Angel Bleeding

Posted in 40k, games with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 11, 2019 by vobeskhan

So my annual throw down with my friend Patrick’s Blood Angels was a little later this year, instead of taking place in the gap between Christmas and New Years we played on the first available day of the New Year down at our FLGS, Tabletop Tyrants.

We agreed to a 2500 point game, no Lords of War but Forge World was allowed. We would be fighting the Tactical Gambit mission from the 2017 Chapter Approved (which I had played through a few times now with great success), additionally we agreed to use the updated cover rules from the 2018 Chapter Approved as well as the Refined Strategy option to discard up to 6 Tactical Objective cards before the start of the game, I discarded 4 while Patrick chose to keep all the cards.

My Black Legion got first turn and between psychic and shooting reduced the sniper scouts to just 3 men who then failed their leadership and ran away.

The Angels responded by deleting my Contemptor but this then left their back lines open and Abaddon took full advantage to deep strike in. His accompanying Obliterators returning the favour against the Sicarran and all but the bike sergeant. The chaos forces also managed to destroy the loyalist contemptor and Vobeskhan the Deamon Prince assaulted the rhino, buffed up by his Diabolic Strength psychic ability.

The loyalists responded by deepstriking their own terminators within their lines in an attempt to deal with the Despoiler. However, the cataphractii failed their charge and lost half their number to overwatch, their captain however did make it into combat with the obliterators striking one down but then Abaddon intervened and tore the captain asunder before beginning to advance upon the remaining terminators.

The Angel warlord with his jumppack leading the Death Company attempted to charge Vobeskhan but despite his relic giving him a reroll on failed charges he still failed to make it in and the deamon prince ripped the rhino to shreds.

As we started my third round the light was failing as badly as the Angels resolve, with the death company and warlord falling to the psychic backlash from one of my rogue psykers perilling. Vobeskhan swooped up to menace the tactical squad in the ruins and Abaddon and the obliterators continued to rain fiery hell on any loyalist they could target. At the end of my shooting phase Patrick conceded and the score was 16-2 to SAMCRO.

This makes it 5-0 in our annual games now, and starts 2019 with a win. Hopefully it bodes well for the rest of the year.
