Games Played: Warhammer 40k
Third straight Saturday at Galleria! Got to rack in four, count 'em, four games in one table on an afternoon and evening of gaming.
Game1 - Sigismund(Tau Empire) vs. Balian(Knights of Ibelin)
2000pts Take and Hold Alpha
Sigismund taps out in Turn4. Balian Wins!
Sigis pulls out yet another surprise by bringing in his all-white (but in progress) Tau Empire. Little did he know that Balian was ready for him when he brought out his ALL-WHITE Knights of Ibelin with THREE white Vindicators!!! Lolz.
Game2 - Kyuzo(Chaos Space Marines) vs. Salubri(Death Ravens)
2000pts Take and Hold Alpha
Salubri wins via Massacre on Turn5!
Things went downhill for the forces of Chaos right at the start when a combined attack from Deathwing assault and Ravenwing scouts rendered a havoc squad on one flank useless with a Land Raider providing problems at the opposite flank, destroying one rhino and disrupting what's intended to be a steady press to the center. Forces of Chaos never had a chance to recover with units being picked one by one taking out all Chaos scoring units to leave center uncontested by the Death Ravens.
Game3 - Balian(Knights of Ibelin) vs. Ebon(Deathguard)
2000pts Secure and Control Gamma
Balian wins via VP!
Immaculate Vindicators DID NOT MISS during the entire game. Enough said. ;)
(the vindicators did miss.. but when they missed, they still hit something :P My MVP for the game though was Balian himself, the Emperor's Champion! Too bad the commander, Godfrey, did not reach combat... my fluff says that dude once fought for two days with a bolter shell in his testicles :P - Balian)
That's what I meant too! Lolz.
Game4 - Salubri(Death Ravens) vs. Sigismund(Tau Empire)
2000pts Cleanse Gamma
Sigismund taps out in Turn4. Salubri Wins!
This was an interesting game. For starters, it was a relatively fast paced one (with a little help from Balian and Kyuzo doing some quick rules reading and casualty packing for Sigis to focus more on the game). And it was all that shooting from the Tau Empire against Deathwing Terminator armor! Talk about "fighting in the shade"! Now maybe if Sigis HAD first turn was not as tangled up in deployment and made full use of his mobility and be able to spread himself out a little more to max out shooting at the Death Raven spearhead... well... we'll never know now would we? Hehehe...
Other Warhammer 40k players showed up to pass by or watch the games with us. There was Marty, and er... Marty, and Naj(?) and RJ(?). Maybe they might be able to join us in the next scheduled Saturday game.
Today's Quotable Quote That Sounded Kinda Wrong Award goes to Justin - "Excuse me Emcee, pahipo ng Rhino mo..." :D
Gaming Ended close to Closing Time (9:00PM).
See you next gaming session.
