Epic Loot Comics and Games.
This might be the last game of the year since Christmas is next week leaving little time to actually getting a game in. This also means that the year of the bug is unoffically over. I know I am quiting right when the new codex is coming out but hey, them the breaks. January will be ork month except for maybe a big all day escalation game. They are talking imperium vs chaos so that means my tanks are coming out.
With that being said last night I played against a Tau list. Wow there is a lot of shooting in that army. We played the emperor's will and the diagonal deployment.
On turn 2 the doom came down and sucked some brains and the devil guants rolled very poorly only getting 7 wounds on one squad and 5 on another. The tervigons made some babies and we all moved up again.

His turn 2 he killed the doom using most of his firepower and put 2 wounds on the swarmlord.
On bug turn my 2 raveners got the charge off and killed the suits. (dang needed to stay in combat) and the guants spread out to avoid bombs. Guys moved forward waiting hoping to survive another round to charge.
Looking back I noticed that I forgot 2 guards for the swarmlord giving him 4 more wounds.... dang. I failed in placement of doom and the guants. These misplacements cost me in the end. If I put them in front of the gun line he would have to fire on the drop pods or block the line of site to my army while I would have had more time to come up and assault. live and learn as I always say.
It was a good game. I figured it was an uphill battle and I just couldn't make it up the hill. The field was pretty open for a running bug list giving him a open view of my braveheart charge. Oh well.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year if I don't have another post between now and then.
