Great batrep, want to see more Space Marines in action. I picked up the codex and I’m enjoying it, but I haven’t been able to actually play 40k in weeks; so I appreciate the barep more than usually

The walk out of reserves directly into the Bastion is my trick, you can send the royalty check when you get a chance

I’m not sure on this because all my 40k minus the new Marines codex is packed up, but I think when first blood happens via assault, you determine which was “first” by initiative step. Thus Abaddon would have died before the Dread regardless, but it’s possible I totally made that up

Frankie, the situation where your PBs could not take the objective until turn 6 is one of the many reasons I switched to Horrors for my “objective campers” They can run, shoot, and are actually almost as durable (although, to be fair, they often have to go to ground to survive)

Got any planned batreps using a beefy chapter master with honor guard?

Sweet! My current plan is to use a CM with burning blade/eternal shield, 5 honor guard w/ 3 Power Mauls and 2 Power axes, put em in a drop pod heavy list with 10 sternguard (double heavy flamer) and assault squads (no jetpacks) with double flamers, should be a hefty alpha strike using sally chapter tactics.

Lol just dont try to make a bull rush full assauly army. use them as a shooting army hiding behind heldrake threat with spawn and the like running interference in the middle. At least give them a chance at doing something lol

Ok reecius if them centurions where grav cannon/ amp the games outcome might be a lot different. IMHO. Check them out replay the game you will see…maybe.

Dude, it’s like a Centurion, but cheaper, can deep strike, causes fear, has a 5++ and can be buffed by Grimoire. Cry more Assault Centurions!

The grav cannon is good against most armies but against Frankie’s list they will only be wounding on 6s and with Abaddon being in a cultists unit they will be wounded on a 6 also. Even with re-roll to wounds they would have caused less wounds than what the assault centerions flamers did. Now the hurricane bolters on the Dev. centurions will rip them to shreds unless luck is on Frankie’s side again and Abaddon tanks those wounds.

I would really love to see some of the Grav weapons in action. I have a campaign match in a week against a guy running a bunch of Grav bikers. 9-(

Great report guys, best in the business!

Grav in this game would have been pitiful actually. Really, Grav is totally match up dependent. In tournaments I could see someone winning hard with grav spam, then they get put against orks or daemons and suddenly their guns are worse than bolters!

another reason you take them on bikes, as you have the twin linked bolter as backup

If you take 2 units of bikes with gravs and combi-gravs, then you’re spending 80 points on weapons that are nearly useless in some match ups. Having twin-linked bolters doesn’t negate the fact that you paid for grav weapons.

Yeah geav weapons are good but maxing them out will cost in game especially tournament settings. but please do so hopefully you play the quad riptide list or massed wraithknights early and knock them out for the rest of us lol. A mix of specials especially plasma is much better tac
