Battle Report Video!

Here is another video report of a really exciting battle we had this past Thursday. Ahriman's Renegades (CSM - Thousand Sons theme) caught The Disciples of Caliban (Dark Angels) by surprise with a flank attack!
It was a brutal and bloody battle. Using the battle mission book we got the Eldar - Flank Attack! mission. I gotta say, this is a really interesting mission, it stretched my strategic thinking and helped me to think outside of the box with my list. For this particualar mission we rolled off and Brother C. was the 'enemy'. This meant that I was pretty much going first and I got the extra cool option of being able to outflank anything that I left in reserve. This was huge! I was able to outflank my chaos dreadnoughts! And to top it all off I didn't have to roll for which side they came in on, it was my choice! The benefit for Brother C. in this mission was that there are only 3 objectives and 2 of them are in his deployment zone way on the other side of the board from me.
I really needed to think about how I was going to play this, I needed to basically control the one objective deep in my territory and do a feint move on one of his flanks to draw the majority of his army there, contest that objective then either capture or contest the other one. For the most part my plan worked out, but he was able to finish off my troops squad in his territory with some really lucky rolling! He also managed to stun my land raider and end the game on turn 5 when it was ready to just plop on his objective.
All in all it was a great game, but I did manage to do more damage to him than he did to me thanks to my terminators tar pitting his entire army. They really earned their armor this fight!
Check out the report!
