After a few weeks of games our impromptu league has a champion.
Here are some images from one of my recent games:
VS Drew (Astra Militarium)
We both brought similarly static gun lines, but my army was a bit more maneuverable
I ended up winning because I was better at going after objectives. We both took a pounding, and were about even in kill points. Don't forget to play the mission.
Phil and his war convocation have beaten every opponent (though some games have been pretty close). Now we are into the challenge phase. Next week I will have finished administering state assessment exams, so Phil and I are going to celebrate by mashing armies and drinking heavily.
Here is the list I am planning on bringing:
Daemon Prince: Nurgle, Greater gift x2, Epidemia, Wings
Beast of Nurgle: x6
Daemon Prince: Exalted Gift, Greater Gift, Wings, Grotti the Nurgling
I have about 50 points of breathing room at the moment, and before anyone asks I am bringing the beasts of nurgle because I only have 3 plague drone models. I might try to force in some flamers they always do well for me.
The idea behind this list is that a combination of invulnerable saves and cover saves is going to negate much of the potential damage from grav destroyers. I still have to worry about quite a bit of other shooting, but I can ignore three squads of destroyers. He has the option to run up to try and flame me, but I welcome such an opportunity.
To engage my opponent I plan on keeping Be'Lakor up in the air to cast buffs and use psychic scream. Invisibility will go on anyone that gets charged by the knight, but will probably be aimed at the grimoire prince otherwise. Grotti will help with the high toughness destroyers, and bring ruststalkers an infiltrators down to toughness two. If I can instakill with strength four, then combat is going to be a breeze.
I have a feeling that this game is going to be dramatic.
