  • razorback kills pedro with lascannon fire
  • tactical squad open fire on the remaining terminator- who dies under bolter fire
The Result
2 objectives to PSJ, 1 to Siph, secondary ob's- PSJ first blood, and Linebreaker, Siph- kill the warlord

A well deserved win for PornStarJedi!! woo!!  I forget how much I love this game,even when having my ass handed to me on an azure plate... Siph ;)

A really good battle, which could have gone either way- Siph had some really bad luck with his dice rolling, which at times was scary- i've never seen so many 1's. And a foot list against this Mech list with flyer was always going to be an uphill struggle - Siph :( but Pornstarjedi fought well.

Terminators are even harder now, especially with power weapons now being AP3. We both forgot that bikes have Jink and Hammer of Wrath. Siph forgot that his Assault Squad have Hammer of Wrath too!

My man of the match has to be the Contemptor- the Kheres assault cannons are nasty- 2 lots of heavy 6, S6 fire w/ Rending... I might have to order a second one... and mines on the painting table as we speak, lol. Siph.

Awesome battle report. But seriously, how lovely is that board?

I've had to go and search through your blog to see where it popped up from, and to think that you managed to snag that from someone! What I wouldn't give to game on something like that. Very well played both of you, and I'll just go back to being that little bit jealous here :D

Dai said...

Yeahm I have to comment on the wonderful board too. Wow.

Great report - get a Stormtalon! :D

Siph_Horridus said...

Thanks everyone, it is a fine board - when are you expanding it Pornstarjedi?

Dai - I have one! http://www.weemen.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/relictors-stormtalon-gunship-space.html

thanks all for the comments, it really was a great battle- which could have been a draw if not for some very unlucky die rolls for Siph..

I'll have to post more pictures of the battle board once I get some free time- it had been over a year since we last played over it- however I'm sure it'll make another appearance soon... (not sure how well daemons would cope on it thouggh...

pornstarjedi said...

Siph- as for expanding it.. lol

Have you thought about doing video batreps? Http://mini wargaming.com have some Of the best if you wanted ideas. A

Hey Alz, I would video but it takes too much attention from the game in hand. At the mo, each turn we just pick up a camera and take a few snaps, thats it. Suppose with a tripod we could but then we'll have to edit etc.

You can come be our cameraman/editor/director/boom operator? ;)
