Upon hitting planetside, Grimcron’s brood got attacked by a company of Daemonhunters lead by Elmer. The encounter happened on the break of dawn(Dawn of War deployment type), and in order to get a foothold on the planet, the Tyranid need to capture a vital objective while Daemonhunters need to capture the Tyranid objective to deny them entry(Capture and Control mission). It is a fight for survival!

A thought was broadcast throughout the whole brood. It is a message from the Hive Tyrant Grimcron. “We have arrived. We shall harvest. We shall be fed. Mother needs us. Mother wants us to do this. Harvest and make HER proud of us. Go my brothers and sisters. Let’s feed!”

A Callidus assassin pops out of nowhere and is about to assassinate a Zoanthrope.

Throughout the encounter, it is a simply a shooting fest. Since turn 1 is also experiencing a gravity flux(Scenario condition), all terrain counts as difficult and dangerous if moved. A Rhino was immobilized while moving on the board.After 6 turns of shooting, almost everything on the board is dead or dying. Tyranids held and protected their objective, while contesting Daemonhunter’s objective.

Victory to Tyranids

.—————————————————————————————–.

After securing a foothold on the planet, the Tyranids moved on to capture another location. Gotten a keen call by infiltrated Genestealers, the brood next attack a human settlement. Unsurprisingly, a company of Space Marines lead by Brother Librarian Tsui rode out to defend the settlement.

Space Marine Roster
01 Librarian (Null zone, Gate of infinity)
10 Tactical (Sgt with Powerfist, 01 Lascannon, 01 Melta gun)
10 Tactical (Sgt with Powerfist, 01 Lascannon, 01 Melta gun)
10 Terminators (02 Cyclone launchers, 01 Chainfist)
10 Terminators (02 Cyclone launchers, 01 Chainfist)
03 Attack bikes (03 Multi Melta)
03 Attack bikes (03 Multi Melta)

The mission was simple for the Space Marines, Kill or be killed (Annihilate mission). Once again the encounter was at the break of dawn(Dawn of war deployment). In addition, killing the highest point HQ is worth more VP thus will earn the marine more honor.

Carnifexes are dying every turn. 8 shots of str8 ap3 from the terminators and 6 shots of str8 ap1 from attack bikes is no joke. On the other hand, flying Hive Tyrant with its devilish guns are wiping the tactical squads off the table.

At the end, Tyranids managed to kill off all the tactical squad and attack bikes, netting 4KP. Marines gotten 10KP from the Carnifex, Zoanthrope and Gaunts.

Victory to Space Marines

.—————————————————————————————–.

The Tyranids has failed to take the settlement. Tyranids are rarely beaten and Mother has send another brood to take that settlement. For Brood Grimcron, Mother has told them to harvest and secure a conquered land. It has 4 location wheres digestive pools has grown(Seized ground mission). When the brood arrived at the location, a force from the warp materialized and whack havoc. The attack came at the break of dawn(Dawn of war deployment) YET AGAIN. Highest point HQ when dead, is replaced by another objective marker. This counts as additional objective(2nd objective).

The denizens from the warp was favored by the Chaos gods and got the preferred half to be deploy first. Daemon HQ was killed around turn 4, making it additional objective on the table. At the end of the game, Daemons contested 2 objectives, Tyranids contested 2 objectives for a total of 3 contested objectives between the two forces. Each held 1 objectives.

Draw Game

.—————————————————————————————–.

Overall, I have 1 win, 1 draw, 1 lose. All played using Dawn of War deployment. Since this tourney allows 2 army lists to be rotated, game 2 against Tsui, he prepared an anti-KP list with a total of 7KP. Smart move and tough luck on me. 😀 Game 3 is a new experience for me. Never played against Daemons before. Is fun and learning experience. Game 1 is fun since we managed to out almost all of each other forces.

Thanks to the organizers of this tourney. Hope for a better game next time.

Thanks for reading.

Cheers
Grimcron
