Title: AoS Vampire Counts vs Warriors of Chaos
Post by: Discoking on September 03, 2015, 11:14:17 PM
Report from my thread over on the Tomb Kings forum :)

For this game we used the Clash of Swords pool choice system and we also ditched the sudden death rule but we each took assinate,blunt and sieze ground as secret objectives.if we achieved all 3 then it was a major victory.

We set up the table,john won the roll and I choose the right hand side.

Battleround 2 - Vampire Counts

Hero phase - Mystic Shield on the Dragon,Vargulf and Bloodknights.I fail to cast Soulblight on the Chosen which would have been -1 attack.

Movement - Dragon,Vargulf and Bloodknights advance on the centre woods. Hexwraiths move forward towards the church with the Grave Guard following.Over my right the Grave Guard move to charge the Marauders.

Charges - On my left the Hexwraiths charge the Scorceror Lord hiding in the church and lock down the warriors and the unit of 10 knights.In the centre my Dragon charges the Chosen,Bloodknights charge the Tzeentch DP and the Vargulf Charges the Lord on Juggernaut.On my right the Grave Guard charge the Marauders

The Bloodknights just fall short of killing the Tzeentch DP hitting him for 7 wounds and loosing 1 in return.The Dragon kills 3 Chosen who put 7 wounds on the Dragon.The Vargulf only manages 1 on the Lord on Juggernaut and takes 3 wounds in return.(In hindsight I was a bit foolish to charge that wood with Mystic Shields and cover saves putting his dudes on a 2+)

Combat - My Bloodknight looks doomed but John chooses the Lord on Juggernaut to go 1st who does 1 wound to my Dragon iirc so I activate the Dragon and the Vampire attacks the Lord and puts 6 wounds on him then uses it's extra range on it's melee attacks to go for the Chaos Knights and inflicts a massive 15 wounds wiping the unit out and saving my lone Bloodknight who in turn kills a Chosen :)  In the church the last Hexwraith finally dies which frees up the Warriors,the 10 strong unit of Chaos Knights and his Lord on Daemonic Mount.

Battleround 3 -  Vampire Counts

Hero Phase -  Mystic Shield on the Dragon and Bloodknights.Bloodknights become befuddled.

Movement - I totally forgot to move....

Shooting - ...because I went staright to shooting and killed nothing with the Dragons breath.

Charging - Even tho I forgot to move I rolled some ace charge rolls and got the Grave Guard and Krell into combat with the Warriors holed up in the church with Krell blocking the hole in the wall to stop more piling in.Over on my right the Grave Guard charged the warriors in the wood.

Great report, nice win on your part! :::cheers:::

Your dragon was certainly the MVP of that battle.

As for the DP being beat by the grave guard, well...it looks like.

(Puts on sunglasses) :icon_cool:

...He got boned.

...sorry, couldn't resist. :-P
