"Say hello to my little friend"
We ran another cracking 40k game at the weekend pitching my Blood Angels against my dads Death Guard in a 1750pt Malstrom of War game. The random deployment card saw our troops able to deploy anywhere in your half of the table but 12" away from a enemy unit. We placed six objectives around the table top each one numbered and we were required to have three tactical objectives cards each of our own turns along with slay the warlord, first kill and line breaker objectives.
I took the the first turn and set about trying to claim the first kill by shooting everything possible at a Death Guard (DG) marine unit in the ruined buildings, slaying all but one DG marine who in my dads turn ran away to hide behind the building so he couldn't be targeted, (to much heckling from myself) denying me a objective point for first kill
A unit of pox walkers make a chance charge across to support the plague bearers locked in combat with the tactical squad, however they failed their charge roll and where left to the mercy of the Ball predator twin assault cannon which accounted for every last one of them!
With the Baal predator tank switching its attentions elsewhere the (coward) traitor Plague Maine plucks up the courage to rejoin the fight from his hiding hole even daring to shot its blight launcher...this DG marine will be a marked man? In games from now on!
The end of the game at turn 5.
