Round 2: Orks Walkers vs BA Terminators
Deployment: Vanguard Strike
Ork List: Unbound Trust in Rust! (warlord trait, -1 to reserves again)
If you didn't read the caption, the harradian wasn't in play. Gorgeous and gigantic model, I don't think it actually got played int he tournament. The fellow who brought it only wanted to use it if his opponent could actually do something about it...otherwise it's kinda of a crazy nasty model to have on the table. Friendly tournament...who'd have thought!
Looking at these images again...This may be turn 1. These bat reps are a bit loose, because we were just having a good old time, and mainly taking photos because the mini's looked cool, not so much to create a detailed battle report. Jeff was a very friendly fellow, and we were having a blast before the game even started. You can get a general gist from the turn # by looking for the big giant dice on the table! (Thank you Sarah!)
Now I'm starting to hurt a bit. Lost 5 dreads in one turn pretty much. I decide to go on the offensive. Mega dread, stompa, gorkanaut, deff dread, and killa kans all push forward hard. The stompa blows away the terminators that took out the gorkanaut, then kills the other dread in close combat. The killa kans blow up the dreadnought that was immobilized.
What is left on Jeff's side? Two storm talons, a handful of terminators and astorath the grim. On my side? The stompa, a hurt deff dread, a hurt mega dread and two killa kans. We go onto turn 4.
I have nothing left but the stompa at this point. Jeff is slightly ahead of me in points. I make a rush for the objective (to score an extra points) and try to kill astro. He makes all his invuln and armor saves on him. The game ends! Jeff takes it 6-4 (line breaker, first blood, hull points stripped from stompa, objective cards claimed). I was hoping for a turn 6 to get another shot at his warlord ( and would have gotten the objective as well!). Either way, a really close game!
