Game 1 vs Tau: The Scouring
Game 2 vs Salamanders, No mercy.
Varied marine list. Couple libbies, 4 melta in a drop pod (I surrounded the tanks), bike command squad and chaplain, a couple razorbacks, and lascannons, but the most deadly thing there was 4 Centurions with Heavy Bolters and Hurricane Bolters - OH MY! They had to die. First turn I jumped the shoota boys, killed one in shooting..and then failed the charge! That unit didn't last long. Next turn I jumped another unit took out the apothecary and librarian. It took a couple turns to finish off the centurions, and zhadsnark mowed through the command squad despite the storm shields (a turn of complete whiff with thunderhammers helped). Again, not much left at the end.
With first blood and warlord I scored a 120-45 major victory.
Game 3 vs demons, secure and control.
He had a ton of seekers of slannesh, brimstones, 15 thousand sons terminators and Magnus. I ended up with first turn yet again! I jumped the shootas over and tried for first blood on the brimstones to no effect. I also took 2 wounds of magnus after some re-rolling 1's and a command point for another save. I should have gone for the seekers. But the seekers spent half the game doing nothing but killing boys so that was quite nice. He then dropped all the terminator and flew magnus right in my face, wiping out most of a unit of boys in shooting but opted to charge mostly another unit so there wasn't much damage in combat. I then jumped the remaining big unit out of combat to assault the smaller unit of termies, locking them up until they died in turn 5. The other bigger unit stayed locked in for most of the game. Zhadnark did a TON of damage to the termies all by himself. Magnus was able to kill off most of my characters but I kept hounding him getting him down to 2 wounds at the end of the game. It ended on turn 5 or I probably would have killed magnus and taken my objective from the 3 remaining termies.
Result in a 0-8 major loss.
Yep 1-2 that day, and with a bit of better play it probably would have been 1-1-1. My biggest errors were not attacking magus with the deffrolla! Totally forgot to attack with my tanks at all while he was locking them in combat. GRRR!! Even the Kill tank is pretty bad ass in combat and can do mortal wounds on the charge!
Despite losing most of my army every game none of them felt like I never stood a change. They were all excellent games and could have gone my way with a bit better play and/or remembering my rules.
