Now Matt, I am not sure you will remember all this, because 80% of a bottle of Grants can do that to people, but let me paint the picture going in to the last turn, turn 7, thank goodness, because turn 5 and 6 were a loss to me...

Dance Party Vs IG army of #####.

Everything has gone bad for the IG, every time Matt has looked at a vehicle its died... Hydra's shoot as Storm Raven, including re-rolls have 17 shots... hit 3 times, do nothing. Triple 1's to wound with 3 Meltaguns with no cover for Sanguinary Guard, etc... snapshots, but typical. I think I lined up 7 Meltaguns and 6 Lascannons at a Sanguinary Guard squad and killed 1 on one turn.

Anyway, so my Vendetta's that outflanked have survived, I have 3, though 1 is Immobilised and a few Lascannons knocked off.

I have a Psyker Battle Squad in a Chimera.

I have a single Hydra.

Matt has 4 Sanguinary Guard, 2 Terminators falling back with an Assault Cannon (could not regroup, within 6" of an enemy) and the Stormraven that somehow has lived 6 turns so far!


I am way, way down on KP's and so I have to wipe Matt to Win.


Matts turn 7:
- Sanguinary Guard jump into Storm Raven, Storm Raven Turbo Boosts to get cover and out of LoS of Immobilised Vendetta.
- Uses Machine Spirit to shoot Assault Cannons at Vendetta for no effect.

Toms turn 7:
- Single Hydra shoots at Storm Raven, does nothing.
- First Vendetta shoots at Storm Raven, does nothing, not even a hit with re-rolls.
- Second Vendetta scores 2 hits, result; 1 Glancing hit. This is the last thing in the game for me to be able to do to win, because I need to kill the Vendetta with my 2nd last unit so I can kill the Sang Guard with my last unit... long shot.
- Matt fails his Cover Save on the Storm Raven.
- I roll a 6... Immobilised... destroyed.
- Psykers then have to do it. They roll there Psychic test... 7, all good.
- Roll for AP... 2!!! Wow.
- Roll for Scatter... HIT.
- 4 Sanguinary Guard, 2+ to Wound...
- Roll 4 dice that arent 1's smile.gif
- Matt goes to ground, if he rolls 1 x 6 and he wins...
- Matt rolls no 6's...

... Win to me on wipe.

The most ridiculous pull out of the ass win ever!


Also, Timmeh was far more sober and can verify everything that can happy.

He also will have passed his job interview and should be starting his new job soon... on about turn 4 when it was looking all teh gay for the IG he said "Tom Damin, if you can somehow win this game, then I am going to get that job"

Oh and full credit to Matt, he played the army really well. I can see how a decent DoA list can severely screw over Guard now. I have experienced it to an extent, but usually its not that effective. KP's also is a nightmare.

How did you destroy thE stormraven Tom? A 6 on a glanced chart is immobilsed. Which doesn't destroy skimmers. GW FAQed this that only immobilized results in the players turn it moves flat out counts as destroyed vehicle...

Otherwise sounds like murphys law hit you bad that game

The Storm Raven moved Flat Out, he shot the Assault Cannon with Machine Spirit. A Skimmer that suffers Immobilised after moving Flat Out is destroyed.

I am pretty sure they FAQ'd the passengers being destroyed if its your turn thing, but it doesnt stop the Skimmer being destroyed in the opponents turn if it moved Flat Out.

Just checked the FAQ, nothing says its not destroyed from what I can see... Pg 71 little rulebook, point 2 under 'Shooting at Skimmers' says its destroyed.

Happy to be shown otherwise though, would be good to know if thats wrong.

+1 a skimmer still dies, the FAQ just says that the unit can disembark

How did the Raven go flat out after passengers embarked in the same turn?

See - he used those tactics found in "the movement phase" - albeit inventively. He's like Napoleon.

Because he lost.
