I opted to field my Lost and the Damned army, while Adrian chose his Tau.
The scenario saw us set up in opposite table quarters, with control of quarters as the defining victory condition. Adrian managed to score first move, and the L&tD casualties kicked off straight away.
|Some of Adrian's gorgeous Tau army.. a Hammerhead.|
|My Chaos Space Marines and Chaos Dreadnought advanced on my right flank, looking to take the table quarter to their front.|
|On my left I locked my flank with the ruins in the table centre, and pushed forward on my left looking for cover in a forest.|
|End of turn 1|
|Turn 2 and casualties were mounting rapidly|
|My mutants made it to the ruins in the quarter on my right.|
|My push on my far left was rapidly whittled down with Tau fire|
|The Tau right flank facing my left|
|Not a lot left of my left after another turn of Tau fire|
|My Defiler missed most of its shots, in my 3rd turn taking down a Tau hammerhead, but all too late.|
Mind you, as we sat and dissected the game afterwards I realised I'd misread my own army lists and had failed to use two further Traitor squads. So I'd effectively had 1100 points against Adrian's 1500 points. Adrian had repeatedly said he couldn't understand how he'd managed to outnumber me so much. Good reason.. incompetence on my part.
But when it was all said and done, we'd pushed some cool figures around the table, and had a good yarn in which we'd solved a significant number of the world's problems.
