Venue: Robinsons Galleria
Regulars Present: Kyuzo, Henri
Other Players Present: Martie with brothers Mickie and Matthew
Probably the last gaming session in Galleria for 2008, and on a Sunday at that. Now with the help of a few Regulars, what better time to get some new players started in 40k, HGR style.
--------------Game1 - Matthew(Eldar) vs. Henri(Iron Wolves)
1500pts Seize Ground(3 counters), Pitched Battle Deployment
Matthew learned few lessons in deployment as well as a few ideas in tweaking/expanding his army list after his first game in Galleria. Eldar took a roundabout route with the intent to flank the Iron Wolves. Iron Wolves reacted accordingly by dropping most of his drop pods to delay the Eldar Wave Serpents from sweeping the field. Extended turns was very testing for both sides, but well played.
Game ends in a draw.
--------------Game2 - Kyuzo(Black Legion) vs. Mickie(Chaos Daemons)
2000pts Seize Ground(4 counters), Pitched Battle Deployment
Kyuzo Wins! 2-0
Mickie's Tzeentch themed Chaos Daemons is scary. His Keeper of Secrets is a lot scarier. Chaos Space Marines rushed to the center of the field, where most of the objectives are placed, deciding to take a defensive position from the impending Daemonic assault. The Black Legion's Daemon Princes were effective in taking out any daemonic troops venturing close to any of the objectives being defended. A timely arrival of Slaanesh Terminators and a few well placed Rhinos drove off the last of the remaining Daemonic troops from claiming any objectives during the end turns Note: After the game, Mickie and I resolved a theoretical assault of the Terminators against his Bloodletters... no termie would've survived and the Bloodletters would consolidate to claim an objective afterwards. Good thing I chose NOT to assault. :D
Black Legion claims two objectives to the Daemons' none. Good game.
--------------There wasn't enough time left for Martie to get a Galleria game in. He'll sure get his chance in the next session. Hopefully, we'll be seeing more of them next year.
Session Ends 7:45pm...
