PostSubject: Khaine's Killers vs Grimlockz Gunnerz (the rematch)   Fri May 07, 2010 9:46 pm

This is the second battle between my small elite strike force of Eldar and the perfidious foe; my daughter Samantha and her mob of Orks and Gretchin, which she renamed as Grimlockz Gunnerz. She's not terribly creative, and my son watches a lot of Transformers. I did take pictures, and will have them edited into this as soon as my batteries recharge enough to do so! What can I say? My camera Sux!

I used my Halo Interactive strategy game board and the Battle for Endor Lego set bunker as terrain.

Forces were set up on either end of the expanse, with the bunker equidistant to both forces, but not between...so they could do a little running and gunning as they sought to take the objective bunker.

In the first turn, I moved my three Guardians in the care of my Exarch towards the bunker, moving more to the side than forward, hoping to keep the bulk of it between them and the Orks for as long as possible. I move my Scorpion Aspirant and Warlock forward to cause a little mischief. Samantha, knowing she cannot go far enough to shoot at my Exarch/Guardian group, moves for the vulnerable Aspirant/Warlock duo. She fires at extreme range, not accomplishing anything against my guys. Yay cover! As both of my models ran that turn, I do not fire. Too far for the Warlocks flamer pistol anyway.

Second turn, the Exarch/Guardians move into the bunker, the Guardians on the roof, and the Exarch holding the doorway solo. The Guardians fire, taking one Ork OOA. Sammi splits her forces, knowing the bunker is the key to the battle. She sends her Nob and 5 remaining Boyz after my Exarch, and leaves her Grots to deal with my Warlock and Aspirant. Because they are cowards, they cannot charge (thanks for pointing that out Mordheimer!), and just shoot from behind their own cover. They wound my Aspirant. Darn!

Turn Three, Grimlock the Nob charges Lezath the Exarch. This is the sort of gaming moment the geek bards sing of. Grimlock with Shoota and Power Klaw, Lezath with Biting Blade and Mandiblaster (yay, successful rarity rolls!). Her Boyz have done supporting fire and knocked out one of my Guardians OOA (#$&@^$*!). In a bout of inspired dice rolling, I win the close combat, and wound the heretofore invincible Grimlock! Huzzah! Nothing more important transpires at the bunker this turn...
But out front, Soreth the Scorpion Aspirant fires his Shuriken pistol and takes a Grot OOA! Carpe-ing the Diem, my (un-named) Warlock moves forward moves forward and lights the Grots up with his flamer pistol. When the dust and dice are settled, 2 more grots are OOA, and two are wounded.

In turn four, The Ork Boyz continue firing on my Guardians, taking another OOA and forcing a rout roll, which, in an equally inspired moment of dice, I fail. Puke
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lessons learned:

1) I need more guys. It is way too easy for Sammi to force a rout test on me. This was intentional originally, as I was not sure how well she was going to take to this. Now, I think she does not need that much help, and I will probably spend my cached credits on some Exodites and Lasguns for more effective support fire. Infiltrating them into someplace sneaky to really hit her where it hurts won't be shabby either. This means I will also need to get her some Kommandos, as the second I do Exodites, she'll want infiltrators too, which defeats the point, really. Still could use some support fire and less rout tests. If I am lucky, I can settle for getting her the Trash Can she wants, and keep the infiltration one sided. This might work, as she seems to prefer the direct approach to "all this sneaking around."

2) Cover works, but only if the other side doesn't have flamers. My gambit with the Warlock and the flamepistol was nearly a game turning event. If he done it against Boyz instead of Grots, it might have been a game winner.

Well, that's all for now. I should have the pics up tonight or tomorrow morning, until then, keep it safe, and keep that cover save!

Hey... sign her up for the Prisoner Exchange... love to see her one of her models! YEAY!

PS: You should sign yourself too! It is about sharing and exchanging prisoners... not about painting skills!

Finally coaxed pics out of my antique of a digital camera! You will notice a few things in these pictures. I am repainting the Orks! The old paintjob was honestly worse than no paint at all, so I am in the laborious process of getting them painted, and in the same scheme, no less. Also, no eldar minis, they were actually drying on the porch Thursday night while we were playing this.

Heh. That camera still takes great shots, when it works. I have to assume you mean the quality of the photography, given the only basecoated Orks, and the Halo Stand-ins for my Eldar.

Thanks!

I played again last night, but that is a tale for another time...
