My friend Tobias and I had a game of Warhammer 30k last Saturday and here is a short AAR from the game.
Not wanting to play a blue on blue game I used my Alpha Legion to counter the Space Wolves and I managed to muster about 900pts.
This scenario gave us victory points for having troops in the enemy deployment zone at the end of the game.
For my special Alpha Legion tactics I choose Counter charge, knowing the Space Wolves this game I think will be about close combat...
On the small planet of Scorpia the battles still continues between Loyalist and Traitor forces.
The Loyalist had managed to secure a victory (of 44-32 at our last event) and had secured their positions and pushing back the traitor advance on the planet.
But not all was good. The loyalist High Command had the feeling of enemy smaller formations operating at the outskirts of one of the ruined cities.
Who they were and what they were actually doing there was not deemed to important.
A small force of Astartes from the Space Wolf Legion was ordered to take care of the enemy. The plan was simple, to smash the enemy present. A force equipped for close combat action was sent in to the area.
The Alpha Legion forces conducting operations in the area met them head on, the plan was to give them a bloody nose. To best the Space Wolves at their own game...
They tried to take out this unit before my Contemptor Dreadnought could close in to support.
Good thing this tactical squad was packing additional close combat weapons and that I had reinforced them with a apothecary and my Centurion.
But I would need every help I could get here, I was outnumbered by the enemy and the enemy had a apothecary on their own.
I got extremely lucky and my friend got extremely unlucky. Only managed to get one hit with his HQ and so on.
In the end I had lost one terminator and the enemy was forced back with the tail between their legs...
I took a step back with my Terminators as the enemy Contemptor closes in.
The two Space Wolves managed to take out my slow reacting Terminator with power fist and autocannon before he could swing.
In the challenge my sergeant and the enemy HQ battled it out till the end, and both was dead.
On his side of the table, two lone sergeants secured the area and won me the game. The Tactical marine sergeant from the first fight and the Recon marine sergeant that survived the Contemptor onslaught. But their sharp eyes was all I needed to secure the area and continue with my mission...
A nice game of Horus Herrasy
Here follows two small pictures I took outside the game, as with the pictures from the game they are blurry but you can see some more details of my troops.
