40K ^3

So in short: Played 3 battles yesterday. Death Guard, Imperial Guard and a 4way against DG, IG and Marines (see Erwin's blog).

Death Guard
He had:
Defiler with battlecannon, Hflamer, twin autocannons.
Pred Annihilator with a front armour of 14.
1 Captain with some uberstuff including furious charge
2 sqs of marines (7 each)..incl. 2 flamers in one sq..and 2 plasmaguns in the other IIRC
And 7 daemons on the summonlist.

I had:
Flyrant
9 stealers
16 hormagaunts
2 Raveners
2x 3 tooled up leaping warriors
Thrope
Lictor

My Flying tyrant was a big target from the beginning. Got shot down to 2 wounds. The ubercaptain of Nurgle decided to finish the job..with I6..but failed and died (yeehaw for Implant attack). Forgot to move my tyrant the next turn (WTF!!!) it died.
On the other line: Everything that survived ran into the Chaos line (2sqs marines and later the deamons). Lictor showed up. Everything got mashed. Hormagaunts did very well. Thrope blasted the Defiler (yay). Ravener and Stealers mashed up the weapons on the Pred..so it was useless. WON :D

IG
2 Big shooty tanks
1 Chimera with kserkin
3 autocannon bases..and lots of minor guard stuff with lightbulbs (lassguns).

me: same list.

Thrope blasted the Chimera. Lots of stuff hit his ranks. My Flyrant got shot at..but kept surviving (yay for the 6+ inv save!!) He finished one of the tanks eventually with help of 2 Raveners. The other tank got blown up eventually by the thrope. The troops weren't a real challenge and got mashed by gaunts and couple of stealers that remained. I lost all warriors IIRC. But it was a good game. Although the troop section of the IG weren't with enough bodies so they just got slaughtered.

4 way:
Same list.
against DG, IG and Marines (see Erwin's blog for the list).
Thrope blew away some marines (DG and loyal).
Flyrant ate some marines and killed a dread and acted as a firing range..but kept saving his 6+s. And flew out of range of a the DG predator annihilator just to keep looking pretty. I killed some deamons and 1 or 2 DG marines. But his captain came bashing in and killed my thrope and some wounded warriors. hormagaunts killed loyal marines got hit bad by 2 speeders..but the remaining 5 managed to severely damaga some IG sq. In the end: good game. It was quite obvious that I wouldn't score very well in the game. Had to go Erwin's way because otherwise the DG guy would have completely ignored IG and Loyal marines to shoot everything at me in a very open space. What headed his way got shot up. DG won because he kept hiding untill the smoke cleared and could walk on the objective with almost no one challenging. My tyrant would have been shot up by the Pred if it got near the objective. Can't bet on 3 lasscannons (incl one twin linked) to fail..or my 6+ to save the day twice.

Hindsight: thrope was rocking!!! Hormagaunts did well even against T5 DG. IG troops are like water...you swim right through.

Sorry...long post ;)

*Shakes head about the spelling issue*. Although at least he didnt randomly have the word 'pussy' in his post :P And yeah I know you meant pus, but still.. it looked PRETTY bad..

Anyway, looks like a good 'Nid list, with all broods performing quite well. Im going to assume you had Synapse on the 'Thrope since you only had the Flyrant and the Warriors for Synapse?

Otherwise, yeah, perdy good indeed.

tss...far less faulty than pus vs pussy.

Kasrikin, kasrkin..don't care as long as they die.

Yes had synapse on the Thrope. Makes him a nice extra, resilient synapse pole..and not instakillable.

Good work with Synapse on the 'Thrope.

And i think its spelt as Kasrkin, although Im too lazy to go check either the IG codex OR EoT codex for spelling confirmation.
