So Day 2, I’d not bothered to check where I was sitting after round 3 as it would no doubt get me frustrated, although I did get to meet the guy I would be playing today, Colin from DGG (I believe that is his club).
Spent quite a bit of the night musing over this, knowing he would be running princes and lash with oblits I needed to figure out how to counter my blobs being dragged out and mauled.
Come the day I found out the details of his list (during the pregame segment where you swap lists) and his list was:
2 Daemon princes, wings, lash.
3 termies with combi meltas in land raider
5 CSM in rhino I think he had meltas but that didn’t worry me
7 Plague marines in a rhino
7 Khorne Zerkers
The mission was: Spearhead, Primary: Seize ground (1 obj in centre of each quarter and one in the middle), Secondary: KP.
Ok, so spearhead gives me a slight chance as i can deploy outside his lash range hopefully, He wins first turn and puts me in a meh corner, not much terrain.
I fail to seize and he begins.
Turn 1 he moves forward oblits running in the shooting phase, land raider and rhino enter DT. He does fail 2 psychic tests. In my turn I kill an oblit from the squad out of cover now on the left and one in cover on the right.
Turn 2 his termies come down by my left blob closest to his long table edge (LTE), he again moves forward and gets his oblits into cover, DP’s move closer and lash my blob into combat (I broke them into 20 man blobs on deployment) I do 1 wound to a prince but lose a bunch of men. In my turn I kill I kill a termie with shots, fluff shots on the LR and run rest of my blobs to his LTE. In HTH his Princes kill few more men.
Turn 4, he kills few men on far left blobs, moves DP towards straken’s combat. Other back a bit and the oblits reposition. I manage to get on the outflank blob and they get my right, walking on Al and the SWS come close to oblits on the creator near my edge, the main blob goes after the rhino and chaos marines on an obj in his quarter. Oblits die to LTW (Like the wnid) through shooting and assault. And I take that obj, the blob gets into combat with his CSM and rhino blowing it up and thinning them to a few men.
The game ends due to time. Damn that cost me big firing a lasgun without thinking. I was meant to assault in and wipe them giving me an obj. As it stands its 1-1. So draw primary, KP it’s the same, so draw again, and VP is close enough for no difference. A pure 10-10 draw.
