John and I decided to play a 2500 point Apocalypse game to test a potential Apocalypse tournament he wants to run in the future. We had a blast with a the rules basically being 1 superheavy with no D weapons. The game came down to the wire....
|Most Awesome Tank Picture of the year! A Baneblade rolling over the wooded hill with the sun shining thru the treas!|
The game was 2500 points each side. We had the 3 objectives each placing them in our deployment zone, no man's land, and each other's deployment zone.
Side angle of my deployment. Battle leader and rune priest in Rhino's with Grey Hunters at the bottom. Multi Melta Longfangs with Rhino, Baneblade, Las/Plas Razor with Flamer Grey Hunters, Longfangs, and Thunderwolves, from top to bottom.
|Longfang ruin of death. 2 units of fangs with 6 missile launchers, 2 plasma cannons, and a cyclone wolfguard and grey hunter squad.|
|The River was difficult and dangerous. Very fast moving current!|
4 Thunder Wolves with Thunderwolf Lord. They would get hurt pretty bad turn 1.
|Front View of my deployment|
|His unit of 20 strong crazy zealots with tons of eviscerators.|
|His exorcist battle formation that shot 26 Strength 8 ap 1 missiles into my wolves killing 3 of the 5 on turn 1.|
|His deployment frontal view. To the left are 2 Immolaters with Twin Linked Multi Meltas with sisters with 2 meltas each.|
We decided to deploy both sides, set up objectives and then roll for who went first. I won the roll to set up first and he won the roll to go first. He moved his Super Tank forward and roasted all the multi melta longfangs except 1, and glanced their rhino. He shot 26 ap 1 missiles into my Thunderwolves and killed everyone except the Lord and the TH/SS Thunderwolf. He moves his repressors up on the road and popped smoke. His Immolaters wrecked my Rhino with the Battle leader and shaked the Rhino with the Rune Priest.
My turn 1, I dropped Right next to the super tank and Exorcists.
|I shot 2 meltas into the exorcist and rolled double 1's. Fail!|
The Supertank moves forward 6" shooting at vehicles left and right doing nothing. The main cannon drops a template on the zealots in cover and kills 8 of them! They make their leadership test before being charged by the Thunderwolf Lord loosing 5 more before swinging back and doing 1 wound with their eviscerators. Longfangs, Lascannons, everything shoots at vehicles! Nothing goes thru armor. Looking sad already.
My 2 Gh packs move towards the 2 Immolaters to assault them and fail to damage 1 while only shaking the other.
|The sisters jump out and shoot at the Battle Leaders Squad killing 2.|
|The GH assault 1 squad and stay locked for 2 turns due to faith and invol saves.|
|On his turn I kill the remaining Zealots with the Thunderwolf Lord|
|A Nice Side shot of the Sisters super tank.|
