While I would be paired with Nemesis and his Death Guard, he ran off for something called "family holiday in Singapore" (lame excuse) and as such I got paired with his little Nurgling Ruben and his Death Guard.
Oppossing us was a combined force of Space Wolves and Genestealer Cultists. The objective? We got ourselves a nice and big gate, and they had to get through it. Now, I had only two orders: don`t kill full units before our turn 3, meaning they wouldn`t be able to come back by deep strike, and ignore the stuff that was at the back of the table, which would have to travel 3 tiles of 24 inch before reaching the gate, so heck, no way they would get there in 5, possibly 6 turns.
So the Emperor`s Children and it`s gunline took up position on the gate walls and towers, while the Death Guard being the more resilient heap camped in the central plaza of the bunker complex.
Our opponents kept a fair share of their forces of the table to strike / ambush / drop in, while the rest of their forces deployed at the end of the first tile
Ambushing forces appeared inside the compound, while Terminators teleported in on the edge of the table
Lovely, more things to fire at...
The wounded Arjan and the Terminators crash into the Blight Drone, which after several rounds of combat would result in the drone blowing up and taking the character with him, great great.
So the Deathshroud marines arrived and blocked the gate, supported by Lucius. While the Plague lord charged into them, the Nurgle Terminators failed their charge.
As the cultists and the genestealers where shot down, Lucius took care of the Terminators. Now the only remaining chance they had, was racing the Intercessors and the Chaplain through the gate... IF they would get a 6th turn after our turn 5.
I openend fire first on the Intercessors, and the odds and end shooting took them down. Now it was only the Chaplain, and Lucius was ready to charge him, should he survive the Deathshroud flamers. but a howling shriek went over the table as Lucius his Doom Siren went off, and it knocked the final wounds of the Chaplain before the Terminators could fire.
Their last chance gone, the opponents tossed the towel, and I ended up with a big red button for the big battle that will control half a dozen defence turrets, muahahaha... Donald the Eternal is in the house.
