Hey guys! Had a fun, but very long game last night versus Umbrood of Hastings Cryx army - I took Old Witch, who had with her Beast 09, full Nyss Hunters, 2 min Kossites, and various merc solos - eEiryss, Gorman, WM Marksmen, and a Manhunter.
Umbrood took along pDenny, Bane Thralls + UA + Tartarus, a Stalker, Deathjack, and Cankerworm.
This game was only 35points, but due to the nature of our armies ended up taking around 3 hours to finish!
The result was - stalemate. We ended up annihilating each others forces, Umbrood ended with pDenny and 3 Bane Thralls left, I had OW + Scrappy, 3 Nyss, my Widowmaker, Gorman and eEiryss left. I couldnt really advance and attack due to stealth, he couldnt advance because I would charge and kill him, so we just called it there.
My Kossites reeeally sucked this game, one unit came in and spent 3 turns getting killed by a Stalker, the other unit came in, charged Bane Lord Tartarus, promptly failed their leadership test and then got Threshered to create 3 more Banes for the Thrall army.
Nyss did exceptionally well, Bane Thralls needing 12's to hit due to Iron Flesh was really game changing, I did end up losing most of them over the course of the game due in part to Scourge from Denny, curses from Tartarus and one lucky dice roll from a Bane Thrall, but their CRA and Weaponmaster attacks once engaged helped keep them around.
My biggest problem was too much stealth, not enough AOEs. Most of my models literally could not shoot at 80% of his army, and I had lost Beast 09 early in a failed attempt at wiping out the Deathjack. (I did take out 3/4 of his boxes, but then died the next turn to a combined attack from Cankerworm, Ripjaw and DJ himself.)
Anyway, no pics unfortunately as I forgot to bring my camera, but most of our models were unpainted anyway so there wasnt much to see :)
Imperial Guard get their first run - Took what will eventually be my Cadian 317th Regiment "The Lost and Forlorn" out for their first game last night. Went up against a fun Genestealer cult l...
