PostSubject: Game 3 - Nurgle Cultists   Wed Feb 10, 2010 2:03 pm

Well, I guess its that time...... Since I did not play Mordheimer last night, I can't rely on him to post a battle report. So.....here is a basic order of how things went last night as well as some relection on what went wrong.....or right, depending on your point of view.

Last night was game 3 of our test campaign, and I played against jd3 who has a Tzeentch Cultist squad. Now what you must understand is that when Jd3 and I play each other, nothing ends well......for either of us. It is the same in 40k. Even when we have 50-60 models on the table we still manage to only have 4 or 5 left at the end of a game.....it is just utter annihilation.

His list of units, as I do not know his full equipment list:

CSM with Mark of Tzeentch and the Sorceror upgrade

Apsiring Champ with MoT

Aspiring Champ with Mot

Chosen with MoCU (Mark of Chaos Undivided)

Chosen with MoCU

2 Annihilators

1 Saboteur (whos name is Le Serpente)

4 Cultists

My List:

CSM with MoN (Mark of Nurgle)
Bolt Pistol, Sword, Lucky Charm, Power Armor, and Power Armor Helmet

Aspiring Champ w/ MoN
Hellgun, Lucky Charm

Aspiring Champ w/ MoN
Autogun, Lucky Charm

Chosen w/ MoN
Autogun, combat knife, Lucky Charm

Chosen w/ MoN
Boltgun, sword, lucky charm

2- Annihilators, 1 flamer and 1 autogun

5 Cultists w/ autoguns



We rolled for scenario and recieved the Chance Encounter. Jd3 deployed first, but I won the first turn.

The game started off fairly even. I put a cultists into a stunned state, while Jd3 took a cultists of mine OOA.

Around turn 3 or 4 after a load of shooting I had put only one of his recruits OOA. I could hit, but my biggest problem of the night was wounding. When I actually got a wound on someone, I could only roll Roll 1 for the injury chart roll. Story.........of...........my.........life. You would not BELIEVE the amount of 1's I roll.

Anyways. at this point Jd3 had put 2 cultists and 1 annihilator of mine OOA, and I was into routing. Although I was routing, I decided to stick in the game because I had my CSM and 2 other officers within some good charge ranges against recruits. That however, was a total flop. Again my dice came back to hunt me. I couldn't roll to-hits or to-wounds. Jd3 however kept putting more guys OOA. At this point I switched my dice to my.......not......loaded dice. I swear there not loaded.....promise.....no really......

So after this crucial change in dice, I charged my CSM into an ongoing combat of Jd3's CSM with one of my recruits. For about 3 turns we sat there and traded blows against each other. One turn in particular stood out above the rest. My CSM has 4 attacks and Jd3's has 3. We roll to-hits......jd3: 2 hits!! Me: 3 hits!! ok to-wound now.......Jd3: 2 CRITICALS!! YA!!! Me: 3 CRITICALS!!!!. Twas a battle of epic proportions, we imagined our two leaders standing there with there swords burried hilt deep into each others body, and ripping them out in a flood of viscreia and entrails.... I ended up taking a wound off of his CSM, but my Nurgle blessed GOD stood there without a scratch.....thank you Lucky Charm!!!

jd3's Sorcerer's criticals on the same Turn as Dozer.
Two out of three... GULP!


Dozer's Plague Marine's criticals on the same Turn as jd3.
Three out of four... YIKES! Cheater!

The game ended with my rolling Roll 6 Roll 6 for my route test (Note that was about the only other time I rolled 6's except for the criticals against Jd3's CSM). There goes the game!!

I ended up with 3 Officers and 5 recruits OOA out of a total army size of 12

I had one officer get completely robbed, and two more have to miss a game due to wounds. I also had three of my recruits die on me. I had piss poor explorations rolls (again, story....of.....my.....life)....which left me with only 45 credits to spend to replace units and gear.

Jd3 had 3 Officers and 4 recruits OOA out of 12. He had one officer take a -1 to Toughness, but in his advancement he rolled a wound!! Leave it to Tzeentch to do something like that. I cannot remember what else he rolled, but he did loose 2 recruits also.

In short, my tactics and strategy were sound, but I was left drastically short after some pretty crappy dice rolls.

One thing that was noticed above all others, was just how powerful the Space Marines can be. My plague marine was for all intents and purposes walking up front and demolishing anything in his path. Normally you would try and hide him behind recruits for a little protection, but I have found that his high toughness, multiple wounds and 3+ armor save keeps the worst of things away. It definitly goes against the norm of how we usually play, and I think thats what helped me partially this game. There is one thing that both Jd3 and Mordheimer have figured out about playing against my squad, and that is to totally ignore my Officer class. It is much easier to put my recruits OOA and force routing than it is to knock my high Toughness Officers OOA.

That was probably the most fun I have had playing a game in awhile, even though I took a big hit for my next game.

Ahhh... now I truly understand WHY the Romans loved the Coliseum! I laughed, I cried, I cringed... I rejoiced! Nothing better than seeing Chaos vs. Chaos beating the Warp out of each other! DaBank... we missed you man! There were feathers and puss EVERYWHERE!

jd3 (game 2) and his Tzseench Cultists vs. Dozer (game 3) and his Nurgle Cultists. They rolled 'Chance Encounter'... and pardoning the french, like they fucking cared! They had one thing in mind... total annihilation! They use the unpainted GW board (2D10 was PACKED!) so it was kindda slippery. Every Dozere they rolled dice, something moved! That fallen Blood Angel scout loved to do the cha-cha. Just Kidding In terms of tactics and strategy, it was awesome! jd3, like always, demonstrated his superior tactical mind... unfortunately his blood lust got the best of him! Dozer changed his playing style, and his T5, W3 Save 3+ Plague Marine was leading the attacks. Holy cow... that guy can take a punishment. No matter what, he never got a wound! YIKES! jd3 pulled Lil' Flamers from his Officers and decided to 'purge the unclean'... BBQ style!

The highlight of the battle was Chaos Space Marine vs. Chaos Space Marine... Dozer had 4 attacks and jd3 3; in the best round, they both hit with all the attacks and jd3 made 2 criticals and Dozer made 3!!! Titanic encounter! The casualties were piling up quickly... mostly thank to Dozer's 'superior' dice rolling. I swear, if we change criticals to be 1's instead of 6's, Dozer would be Mr. Critical Hit. At the end, Dozer was forced to rout, rolling one of his very few double 6's!

jd3 had an Officer miss a game, an Officer get -1 T (he has Toughness 2 with 2 Wounds... Tzseench is a cruel master!) and lost the only 2 recruits that had a name... Mr. Doom something-something and, everyone's favorite, (in french accent) Le Serpenté!) I guess that now I have a 'chance' on my game vs jd3!

Dozer had bad luck on the rolls... like always! Two Officers miss a game (he wants to be like ME!), one Officer got robbed (HA!) and lost 3 recruits! I would say that Dozer is now licking their wounds... but that would be very gross!

In terms of game mechanics, we did not find anything specific this Dozere. We kindda figure out that the CC will be a Squad with strong Officers and weak Recruits. What I like about this Aquiles Heel is that is a tactics & strategic related weakness. To win vs Chaos Cultists you need to take the Recruits... but as the Officers get stronger they become a shield for the mass forces! Very different game than we had before, in which Officers tend to stay on the back until the last minute.It was pretty shocking seen the Plague Marine just walking in front of everyone, picking and shooting targets. Talk about seeing death coming for ya'! We also discussed ideas for the Nurgle specific skill Feel No Pain... while we do not know what will be the end result, we gave Dozer several ideas on how to work the skill. He is also thinking on revising certain aspects of Nurgle, to tone it down a bit... so to tempt players to pick other Marks. In DS, if Toughness rules then Nurgle is king.

I will post pictures soon!

The pictures as promised...

Tzseench's Minions
Sneaky deployment will cause major headaches to Nurgle's Champion.


Just another brick...
Like their toughness 4 is NOT enough... deploying behind buildings!


Can you spot the problem?
Maybe not... see the few pictures below.


Amazing tactical move.
Tzseench moves forward, forcing Nurgle forces to spread out.


You STILL can't see the problem?
Maybe not... see the few pictures below.


We are sneaky...
Like all followers of the Dark Gods... we are hidding on the shadows.
Only the Emperor's Light can reveal us... or a nice flash!!


SURPRISE!!!
Yes, that is a Flamer what I'm carrying and all you 3 are invited to the party!
Burn baby, BURN!!!


Another WHAT?!?
Another Flamer... I told you it was a BBQ!!!


Uncontested move...
The Plague Marine leads the charge, shrugging off autogun fire.


Plague Marine starts giving to the needy...
Pain... the only thing he can give.


Out of sight...
... easier to gang upon!


Magical Moments
... of DOOM! The Chaos Sorcerer starts beating people up to a pulp!


Titanic Battle
Out of targets, both Leaders decide to stick it to each other.
Everyone else on that fight came & died un-noticed!!!

Infiltrators!
Unknown by everyone... The Eye Pokers had sent spies to the remote post.
With the newly acquire Intelligence, Chaos sure would fall.


Enjoying the BBQ!
I love the smell of maggots in the morning!


Dozer...
Getting LoS or cheating? YOU decide!
I got EVIDENCE now!

We use those laser pointers for LOS. You can get them pretty cheap nowadays on the ol' eBay.

Looks like a good fight,

Hehehe... we just CHEAT! Just Kidding

jd3 creates earthquakes (accidental bumps on the table), Dozer uses Calculus and Spatial Mechanics to justify anything (he ALWAYS have a calculator, pencil & papers) and I just re-write TLRB (actually, I can't never remember any rules... even when I'm the one writing them down!)

That was a fun game... good old times!
