|She-Who-Milks, and Giggles the Rotter wait for the moment of deployment|
|My assembled force.|
Primary Detachment: Daemons of Chaos.
- She-Who-Milks (Keeper of Secrets)
- Giggles the Rotter (Great Unclean One)
- 10 Daemontes
- 2 Bases of nurglings
- 11 Plaguebearers
- 5 Fiends of Slaanesh
- Gnarlstick the Sorcerer
- 5 Chaos Space Marines with Mark of Nurgle
- 5 Chaos Space Marines with Mark of Slaanesh
- 5 Chaos Bikers (one with flamer another with Meltagun).
So down at the local Hobbytown USA I met the gang for the weekly Saturday Evening game night and paired off against Rob. He was also running chaos, but with Space Marines as his Primary detachment. As this was my 1st outing with chaos in 6th edition Warhammer 40,000, it was cool of him to show me the ropes of these "new" books. Particularly all the pre-game rolling I found myself doing at the start of the game as it was good to get his input on things.
My Keeper of Secrets did well on her rolls but it was the Great Unclean One that really racked up on the tasty treats. The gift bestowed upon Giggles was Unbreakable Hide (3+ armor save which I forgot about as the game went on) and Corpulescence (+1 Wound and It will not Die! Sick combo on a GUO!). For Psychics I went all Biomancy and pulled Endurance, Iron Arm and Enfeeble). My Space Marine Sorcerer pulled Endurance as his one power.
What follows will be just the briefest of highlights as I was really having to much fun to make one of my more in-depth battle reports, as well as the fact that both our armies are unpainted, but I took a few snap-shots anyway because we were simply having a memorable game.
|Attack of the nurglings!|
|Moving in the for kill|
|"...and for my reward,"|
|>BUUUURP!< "Cor, what's dat o'va dare?" GUO too far way to contest the objective.|
|"It is ours!"|
All in all it was hell of a fun game. And it ended in a tie!
I got Line Breaker (1 pt), Slay the Warlord (1vp) and an objective (2vp) = 5vps
Rob got First Blood (1vp), Slay the Warlord (1vp) and an objective (2vp) = 5vps
Rob left the game with dreams of acquiring Great Unclean Ones dancing in his head...
|On the other table, it was all out war! A 4-army battle was being waged.|
