I like how you constantly seem to keep your opponents off balance, great use of the solo-crusher taking out a Master Necro is no joke that early on. Really enjoying them keep it up!

Thanks for your comments smile.gif. Will definitely keep these up, though I'm not sure when my next game will be. What I do know, is that on 21.-22.4. there's a ETC-comped tournament coming up that I'm participating so at least then you'll have 5 more batreps to read smile.gif.




QUOTE (Lord Tremendous)
Outstanding report and outstanding performance!

However my favorite part of the report was the picture of the two units of flamers roasting the Ghouls with the Juice box "Trips" centered in the pic.

Horribly evil and demented Undead in a vicious battle against the unnatural Demons with a monolith Juice box hanging out in the background. It made me smile!  biggrin.gif

Looking forward to your next report!

-Tremendous



Unfortunately the juice box was fighting on the undeads side sad.gif.

think the etc comps have restricted it so you dont get access to the whole lore. I could be mistaken though, as i flatly refuse to enter any etc comp

Yes, the case is that we have been using ETC comps, which indeed change MoS to actually roll two spells from one of the rulebook lores.

Hi folks, time for yet another batrep. This is my last training game for the ETC comped tournament held next weekend. This time I played against the same guy that I played against in my first batrep (OK vs. DoC) but this time he was fielding his high elves. In the past I’ve played against HE twice, both times were during 7th edition and both times I got beaten, so I was bit worried when going against his army as I knew that HE is tough army.
-He has ASF and higher I so he gets to reroll misses
-Most of the time he’s wounding me on 2+, shooting and spears wounding on 4+
-He has tons of attacks
=Bad times for bloodletters


Anyway, here’s his list:

Prince
Star dragon, Armor of caledor, Vambraces of defence, GW (rerollable 2+ armor, 4+ ward sleep.gif)

Mage
Lvl 2, Annulian crystal, High magic (got vauls unmaking and Shield of saphery)

Mage
Lvl 2, Silver wand, Ring of fury, High magic (got Flames of the phoenix, fury of khaine, curse of arrow attraction)

Noble
BSB, Armor of silvered steel, Dragon bane gem, GW


24 Spears
Full Command, Banner of swiftness

16 Archers
Musician

16 Archers
Musician

20 White Lion
Full command, Ruby ring, Banner of sorcery

7 Swordmasters
7 Swordmasters

Eagle
Eagle


And here’s my list:

Bloodthirster
Immortal fury, axe of khorne, obsidian armor

Herald of tzeentch
Spell breaker, master of sorcery, lore of light (got birona’s timewarp and banishment)

Herald of khorne
BSB, great icon of despair

Herald of khorne
Firestorm blade

30 Bloodletters
FC

30 Bloodletters
FC

10 Horrors

3 Flamers
3 Flamers
Bloodcrusher

Fiend

TURN 1: Demons

Chaff moving forward, general advancing in left flank
user posted image
Same thing on right flank
user posted image
My magic phase (winds of magic roll) looks like this and thanks to annulian crystal he has 3dp against my2pd.. In shooting I kill few white lions
user posted image

Very uneventful turn for me and we're off to..


TURN 1: High elves

Advancing on the left flank
user posted image
Shuffling in the middle
user posted image
Bit more shuffling on the right flank
user posted image
His magic is pitiful and he doesn’t get any spells through. In shooting he kills the fiend in the center and couple bloodletters
user posted image


TURN 2: Demons

I shuffle in the middle. HoT escapes from the doomed horrors.
user posted image
Other bletter horde prepares to invade the building
user posted image
Fiend charges and clips his spearmen unit in the flank, getting into b2b contact with his silver wand mage. Fiend causes a wound on mage, fiend takes one in return due to instability
user posted image
I charge both of his archer units with my crushers. The other one dies to stand and shoot and the other takes a wound and doesn’t make it..
user posted image


TURN 2: High elves

Dragonlord charges horrors. Here is the error I made yet again. I placed the horrors in front of the bloodletters thinking that his dragonlord easily plows through the horrors and either overruns into the bloodletters or gets charged by them… Obviously that doesn’t happen.
user posted image
Movement on right flank
user posted image
Fiend kills his mage but dies to instability, not a bad trade (fiend 55pts, mage 185pts..)
user posted image
Like I said, dragonlord fails to kill horrors and is now unreachable for the bloodletters.. I should have moved the horrors next to bloodletters so that if he had charged the horrors then, I would have been able to charge his flank with my bletters.. Oh well, got to remember that next time..
user posted image


TURN 3: Demons

Left flank crusher attempts to charge archers but is killed in s&s
user posted image
Thirster charges white lions (ERROR, really shouldn’t have done that. I should have moved him behind the dragonlord to threat it..)
user posted image
Right flank bletters invade the building. Flamers come to shoot his eagle
user posted image
My magic does whole lotta nothing. In shooting I make nuggets out of his eagle
user posted image
Other unit of flamers fry the swordmasters advancing in the left
user posted image
Dragonlord finishes my horror unit and now reformed to look at my bloodthirsters rear.. (see where this is heading..)
user posted image
Thirster kills a bunch of white lions and takes a wound in return. Rerollable stubborn LD10 passes.
user posted image
TURN 3: High elves

Dragonlord charges thirster
user posted image
Swordmasters assault the building…
user posted image
…And get annihilated. His magic and shooting did little so no pic of those phases, sorry.
user posted image
Thirster gets in challenge with the dragonlord. Does _a_wound_. Loses combat and melts to instability
user posted image


TURN 4: Demons

Bletters face to take charge from dragonlord. Flamers move to fry his other eagle harassing my HoT
user posted image
Other bletter horde comes out of the building
user posted image

My magic and shooting does whole lotta nothing, though I at least managed to kill his eagle.


TURN 4: High elves

Dragonlord charges the bletters
user posted image
White lions and spear elves charge the bletter unit
user posted image
In combat I kill whole bunch of elves and win combat. His steadfast holds.
user posted image
Dragonlord kills a ton of bletters but I’m still steadfast and don’t melt. I think I made two wounds on dragon, not sure though.
user posted image


TURN 5: Demons

Flamers move to kill his swordmasters (and in shooting, I managed to kill one).
user posted image
HoT moves inbetween my bletters hordes…
user posted image
And irresistable forces big timewarp through.
user posted image
Shooting kills a couple of his archers
user posted image


TURN 5: High elves

Swordmasters charge the bloodletters to the flank
user posted image
He shoots at my herald with his archers at long range and promptly kills it (his archers were awkwardly accurate through this game..).
user posted image
In combat he kills a bunch of bletters and I kill one swordmaster and his dragon.
user posted image
In the other combat I finish his spearmen and reform to look at his two whitelions and bsb that are still alive.
user posted image


TURN 6: Demons

I move my flamers to shoot at his mages archer unit
user posted image
Lone swordmaster and prince finish off my bletter unit
user posted image

After I had killed his BSB and the two white lions I had ten bloodletters left in that unit. In ETC comp system, you get half points for a unit if you kill 75% of it. In his turn 6 he needs to kill 3 bletters to get those points…


TURN 6: High elves

He charges unit of flamers with his prince but fails. His magic does nothing.

He needs to move his archers to get shots at my bletter unit. He needs 5+ to hit. He gets 21 shots from his two units (I had depleted them a bit). After hitting and wounding, he has caused 3 wounds. I need to save one of these so he doesn’t get half the points for them. And I don’t save it. Damnit.


In the end Demons have lost 1995vp and High elves have lost 1643.5pts which means what Demons lose 8-12. If one of those bletters had lived. The game would have been 9-11.


Few afterthoughts:

-I really should have just moved my BT to face his dragonlord. Most likely BT would have been able to handle it.
-I was too scared of the White lions, I charged them with BT because I thought that bloodletters couldn’t handle them, when they actually could have handled them. Or then I could have just stayed put and shot those white lions and fight his other units with bletters.

Oh well, it was a fun game certainly a good learning experience. Next time I play against HE I need to remember these things. And that I should really never put my horrors infront of my bletters…

Ouch! That almost hurt to read! wink.gif
Always sad to see the Daemons lose.
I think you got the broadstrokes of your 'mistakes' hammered out already so I'm not gonna go into those.

Very nice report! Makes me think I gotta bring the camera next time I get a game off as well. It's been a while actually.

And hey, I actually think High Elves are a pretty respectable opponant to face, so it's no shame in this really.

Well, a good read either way, thanks a lot for that!

Had great time during the weekend in the ETC comped tournament that I mentioned. Took a ton of pics from each of my games. I was too tired yesterday to start going through them, but today I will sort them out and start uploading and then I'll start writing the batreps. Hopefully I'll get atleast one batrep out later tonight!

Stay tuned

Units moving forward in the centre

Thirster flies over to threat right flank

user posted image
Maneasters kill ten, I do 9 wounds back, I lose combat but pass my instability and reform to face his maneaters (revealing my flank to his mournfangs beating my fiend… silly me.)
user posted image

Turn 2: Daemons

Flamers to the rescue!
user posted image
Thirster and flamers charge ironguts + firebelly, letterhorde charges ogres + slaughtermaster + bsb
user posted image
Thirster and flamers annihilate ironguts + firebelly and thirster overruns to ogres flank. In combat I kill all but slaughtermaster, bsb and a single ogre. Slaughtermasters stubborn crown holds
user posted image

Turn 3: Ogres

Leadbelchers charge letters flank
user posted image
Mournfangs charge other letters flank
user posted image
…And nearly kill them all. Luckily I killed his maneaters and thus freed my flamers from there to come and aid against mournfangs
user posted image
In the other combat, I kill his BSB and do couple wounds here and there but he holds
user posted image

Turn 3: Daemons

Slaughtermaster feeling lonely.
user posted image
No more mourning
user posted image

Turn 4: Ogres

Leadbelchers break and slaughtermaster dies. I catch leadbelchers and nearly get into combat with thundertusk
user posted image

Turn 4: Daemons

I charge the last ogre unit alive on board
user posted image
..and win via wipeout on turn 4B. (thundertusk is actually dead, not fleeing..)
user posted image


So a very nice 20-0 win for the daemons, couldn't have hoped for a better start for the tournament. Next game vs. Lizardmen.. Hopefully i'll get that done by tomorrow.

Congrats!

Looked a little shaky there in the first turn when the Crusher and Fiend were exposed to those Maneaters, but you recovered quite well from that.

Very nice looking Army too!! That alone deserves praise.

I also just finally realized what you made that Bloodthirster from.. always though it looked very groovy and realizing what model it comes from originally was a real 'aha' moment. smile.gif

A real intense punching-fest this battle, I'll say. Well played, all though I assume the Ogre player had a bit of bad luck on some rolls (like allowing you to cast Birona's for example).

Cool, thanks for this! Hope to see more soon! smile.gif

Thanks Dreign, ya the Bloodthirster is made from Shaggoth, I've allways thought that the GW BT's look too small and flimsy so I wanted something more suitable.

Actually neither of one of us had particularly bad/good dice luck, we were both rolling just about the averages. Although that Birona came through at irresistable force and what I forgot to write in my batrep was that my herald of tzeenthh lost his wizard levels right there on turn 1 biggrin.gif.
