Posted in 40k with tags , , , , , , on December 29, 2016 by vobeskhan

60030102012_BlackLegionENG01Today my SAMCRO Black Legion faced off against my friend Patrick’s Blood Angels in what has become our annual Christmas showdown. We agreed to 2000 points, no Forge World and no Lords of War.

Patrick used some of the new units and formations from the Angels Blade book, appropriate as the game would also count towards a small campaign some of us at the All Scars are playing based upon the Black Crusade.

From memory he had:

  • Level 2 Librarian dreadnought
  • normal dreadnought with twin-linked lascannons and missile launcher
  • 10 man death company with jumppacks, led by
  • Lemartes
  • 6 man assault marine squad with jumppacks
  • 10 man tactical squad with multi-melta and meltagun in a rhino
  • 10 man tactical squad with heavy flamer and flamer in drop pod
  • level 2 librarian in terminator armour
  • 8 man terminator squad including an assault cannon
  • 5 man bike squad

We decided to roll for mission, deployment etc once we were at the table.

  • Mission – Maelstrom 5 – Cloak and Shadow
  • Deployment – Hammer & Anvil
  • I got to choose zones and deploy first
  • Patrick failed to seize

I decided to go full Nurgle for my sorcerer’s powers – getting Force, Nurgle’s Rot, Weapon Virus, Blades of Putrification, and Gift of Contagion (so only one of the new powers), the sorcerer also got a free Boon roll from his formation and got 53 Hatred (wow, how helpful, not).

Patrick took an early lead, being 3-1 up at the end of the first round, I got First Blood for Lemartes and he got Slay the Warlord for Abaddon.

Second round neither of us scored anything.

Third round I pulled back a couple of points, 3-3.

Fourth (and final round due to time), I score a card for D3 points and roll a 3! Patrick takes a gamble but fails to get the extra points needed. Final score 6-3 to the Black Legion.

As always it had been a great game against a courageous and friendly opponent, this brings our personal tally to 3-0 to me, but Patrick swears vengeance. I look forward to it eagerly (maybe I’ll even have a new codex by then).
