Chaos won roll and went first.

Tyranids deployed along opposite corner.

Highlights of the Game

  • Obliterators shot Hive Tyrant with plasma cannon most of the game but surprisingly, it is the predators that put the most wounds on it. Failing 3 armor saves in a row on 2+.
  • Daemon Prince lashed Spinegaunts 2 times in the game and begin a slow process of killing them off.
  • Chaos Marines disembarked from Rhino to rapid fire Hive Tyrants. This is a costly mistakes and both squads got wiped following turn.
  • Berzerkers ate Tyranids easy. 1 Carnifex charged a squad of Berzerkers and died on the charge. 12 Spinegaunts charged Berserker and parish without doing any damage. Genestealers had no chance to engaged Berzerkers unfortunately.
  • Hive Tyrants are forcing an impressive 11 armor saves every turn.
  • Had my Ripper Swarmps and Spinegaunts bubble wrap my units to prevent being Lashed. This has prove to be effective.
  • Game ended at turn 5. Tyranids own 01 objective and Chaos own 00 objective.

Cheers.
