Sunday I played catch-up for one of the league guys - giving him his 750 point game. It was against a nicely done Space Marine army. From memory - Librarian, scout squad of 5 (sniper and heavy bolter), 5 scouts in a storm, land raider, and a tactical squad... I think. The battle was a little of a blur... let's just say the dice and I had a falling out. :)
Second game was a 1000 pointer against a mirror'd net list (no offense there Clayton...). 2x Daemon Princes with Mark of Slaanesh, wings, and Lash of Submission, 2x5 Plague Marines in Rhino's with 2 plasma guns each, and 2 defilers built for close combat. Wazdakka, Big Mek, 4 squads of bikers (4 + power claw, 3 + 'uge choppa, 3 + 'uge choppa, and 2 + power klaw), 2 rokkit deff koptas and 2 kustom mega blastas).
It was Dawn of War with 2 objectives. We both started all off the board, I turbo-boosted everything on first turn, knowing that I would be taking the lash and 2 battle cannon shots on the first turn. I concentrated on the daemon princes first turn, then the defilers, then the plague marines. In email discussion several hours after the battle - I'm told Wazdakka took a defiler fist to the head after taking two wounds killing a daemon prince (which would be insta-death), but I don't remember it...
At worst it would have delayed the inevitable (see the pictures below) - but Clayton says he wants a rematch.
Right. On to the pictures.
This would be while he was taking his first turn. All of that is turbo boosted orks (except for the mek).
