Game 1 - Kyuzo(Black Legion) vs. Deadeye(Ultramarines)
2000pts Capture and Control, Dawn Of War (5th Ed Beta)

Went mechanized Black Legion today, with the debut of two Predators, a Vindicator and Landraider to go along with my four Rhinos. Going mechanized seems better considering the scenarios and vehicle rules. First turn for both sides was pretty much straight forward with the troops from both sides securing their home objectives. In the succeeding turns I decided to go the way of the aggressor and tried to pick off his troops at his home objective and hopefully to contest and try to win it at least.

My Daemon Prince had a little fun, Lashing an Ultramarine Tac Squad from behind their Rhino right out in the open and within range of my Vindicator. Experienced a little guilty pleasure out of that move I must admit. But that guilty pleasure didnt last long. Wanted to go for the win by Lashing the remaining Lascannon squad that's guarding their home objective, only failing by rolling an 11 and getting shot down by Ultramarine fire, which pretty much sealed the Draw after no extended turns were rolled. Good game.

The Chaos list I used:


Daemon Prince - Wings, Mark of Slaanesh, Lash of Submission


1x5Chaos Terminators - 1xTwin Lightning Claws, 2xCombi-meltas, 2xCombi-flamers, Powerfist, Landraider dedicated transport


4x10Chaos Space Marines, 2xMeltaguns, Aspiring Champion with Powerfist, Rhino dedicated tranpsorts with havoc missle launchers
