I've been too busy/out of town the last few weeks to make it to my regular Monday night game. Was able to meet up with Totengraber this week for a shit's and giggles game and was absolutely blown away by who my MVP units were!
Totengraber brought his Tau and after trying to put together something at least semi -competitive for Nova I felt like just throwing together a bunch of Chaos stuff that I thought would be fun. I was really looking forward to trying out my Daemon prince now that he's a flying monsterous creature (you mean I may actually have a chance to swoop across the table and get into combat without getting shot to pieces?!), as well as my new Blight drone. I'm trying to get over my fanatical love for all things rotten and pus ridden by geting away from the Mono-Nurgle builds, so I ended up with just one squad of Plague marines escorting a sorcerer and three squads of bog standard Chaos marines for troops.
Unfortunately, we ran out of time to finish the game. What shocked me though, was just how much havoc my Chaos marines caused. My ac/las Predator couldn't hit a thing, but the marines ended up downing 5 vehicles all by themselves with kraks! Granted, they won't be taking out any really heavy armor that way, but seeing them mow through light armor was crazy. We even double checked the grenade rules because it just seemed too good! So, i've discovered something else really cool about 6th. . .
It's official. . . I love me some grenades!
