A few Regulars were absent today, as well as most of the new players due to exams and prior commitments. But despite that, we were able to log in a few games, as well as enjoying the scene and being seen.
--------------Game1 - Mike(Tyranids) vs. Balian(Dark Angels)
2000pts Take and Hold Gamma
This was a tiring 4-hour conflict with the Ezekiel-led Dark Angels standing ground against the steady advance of the Tyranid horde. In the end it was good target prioritizing and insane plasma firepower (some Dark Angels took one for the Brotherhood to keep the Tyranid horde at bay) that kept the Dark Angels on top.
--------------Game2 - Henri(Space Wolves) vs. Kyuzo(Dark Eldar)
2000pts Recon Alpha
Kyuzo Wins! 3-0
Decided to go all raiders and ravagers (well... along with my usual Wyches and Archon-led Incubi on the side). Had to make full use of the Dark Eldar's mobility and hope to take out the Space Wolves' tanks before they return the hurt exponentially. The wyches were not as effective as I would've wanted against Blood Claws having missed a lot of hit rolls and did only a few wounds, and losing a few rounds of combat as well. Game ends with two Ravagers and a Wych squad touching down on the Space Wolf deployment zone versus none for the Space Wolves.
--------------Game3 - Ebon(Order of the Clenched Fist) vs. Henri(Space Wolves)
2000pts Take and Hold Alpha
Henri taps out on the 5th Turn. Ebon Wins!
Balian and I watched part of this game. The Space Wolf Vidicator was pretty much take out of it when it was immobilized not facing the thick of the battle. The Order methodically took out Space Wolf units while slowly inching their way towards the center. Henri's taps out at the end of the 5th turn, after assessing his Space Wolves cannot match the Order's scoring units already entrenching themselves at the center.
--------------Balian and I were both tired after playing long games, but a real good kind of tired. So we packed up and went home. Gaming ended relatively early at 7:30pm.
Quotable Quotes for the Day:
"The eye contact was there! At least I still have my mojo! Buti na lang may testigo ako!" - Balian. Enuff said.
