Nate, an Eldar / black templar player, asked if I wanted to join his side. I was looking for some fun so I agreed. He took out 1500 points and I slimmed down my list to 1500 and I deployed further back to signify that my troops were delayed in the battle.
We were facing off against a Blood Angels, Tau, and Space Wolf army. We had a new imperial Knight (proxied by a wraith knight) and they had a thunderhawk (proxied by a Stormraven).
|This is hard to kill with no AA|
|For the points it is very weak comparatively.|
My commander was mauled by a Forgeworld Space Wolf special character that smashed me. The Riptide lasted till turn 5 with a shot from a enemy crisis suit. He preformed well. I have learned that the 35 pt stimulant injector is well worth its points.
|Good Job Zaku Riptide. You even got complements.|
I forgot my pathfinders when laying out my army but I know I need to field 2 squads. Hitting on 4's sucks with all this great firepower.
The game ended on turn 6 with us with 2 objectives to their 1. For fun we played out the last turn with them tabling me and leaving my ally with 3 Templars. It was a close race. Many firewarriors gave their lives for that win.
After the game they said that really the player base moved to Wed nights so I am going to switch game nite to Wed. Hopefully I will get some more games in. they seemed to be some good guys and helped me fit right in. None of them seem to be hard core gamers so I think I will fit in nicely.
Have a good weekend.
