Hey all! Great 40k day! I had a blast, even if my Tsons did take it in the face from the green tide!
I faced off against Orks, and they were very orky. Nothing but trucks, boyz, and boyz with even BIGGER armor!
I tried my best to hold down the center of the map, and I did get in some good shooting early. I immobilized a few trucks and took out an entire boy squad with a vindicator shot. But alas, it wasn't enough to stop the horde from advancing on me.
On my left flank was the 10 meganobz, they absolutely ate me. I wasn't ready for what they were capable of. They ran right through my tanks, command squad, and even my land raider.
I basically got overrun from all sides. My heavy support just couldn't lay down enough fire power and once those boyz got into melee with me, it was over. It took 3 turns for them to finish off some of my Tsons. They fought valiantly, fending off 2 squads of orks, but eventually they folded once the meganobz made it to them.
I really learned a lot from this game. I had never played against orks before. The meganobs were the deciding factor. 4 Attacks at strength 10 and init 3 was just too much. I would have tried to drop the vindi plate on them when I had the chance early on if I knew they were capable of that nonsense! I am looking forward to licking my wounds and taking another crack at the orks! Next time i'll be ready for them!
Even though I lost I really had a great time. I was very happy The Prophet got his first win with the orks! Congrats!
