Well as always Ryan and Nick put on a great event. It was a 2 game 3000pt event. Each side’s general appointed mission and special objective based on table and opponent. Multiple lists were allowed and multi-bombing a must!
I of course took my Ultramarines, which were not full painted due to a LITERAL paint booth meltdown. First game was a team game 3000pts of Ultras and my teammate Chris’ 1000 pts of Sallies versus 3000 pts of Iron Warrios and 1000pts of Nightlords. First turn was great, and we should have know better when down hill from there. G-man did not even get in the mix. Lessons learn be careful what units you screen with. Also I did Seize initiative so that was kewl.
Game 2 was an awesome grudge match. Dave Challenged me Alpha and Omega, Primarch on Primarch. So the Pride of the Legion Hosts went at it. I again stole initiative! That’s twice in one day. I have never done that before nor do I expect to again!I suffered some devastating losses turn 1 but fought back. The two Sicarans made their presence felt! Dave had to get objectives while I needed to hold center of the board, but it came down to a game of attrition, Rhinos popping left and right. Dave’s Venator and my Land raider both got popped early. The Sicarans chipped away at both infantry and Dave Spartan while my Spartan rolled into position. Guilliman and the Suzerains with Apothacary jumped out to get ready to assault, which is when Dave turned around his Rhino and popped my guys with some plasma! Then The couple remaining Suzerains and GMan got assaulted by Alpharius and his termies. I hung in there a couple rounds but in the end Guilliman but the bullet. But next turn so did Alpharius and his boys. I had him on the run but sure enough turn 5 I rolled and the game ended. Was an AWESOME match and definitely one of the best time I have had playing Horus Heresy. I think both of us learned a lot about our lists.
I can say one thing for sure. The primarchs will hit the table again!
