The Match-up!

This is going to be a fun game! We’ve got vehicles all over the place, and a ton of infantry that will be duking it out! Danny’s list is more traditional AM, with lots of tanks, and mechanized infantry packing special weapons. He’s also got some solid Airpower with a Vendetta and Vulture. The Knight and Hydras will also be very solid vs. Reeciu’s list, giving defense against his flyers and a mobile unit that can go punch the snot out of his weaker MSU style units.

Reecius’ list has the benefit of not needing first turn, and it has tons of mobility and the ability to attack along multiple threat vectors. He also has a great deal of air power, and the ability to reroll reserves with Issodon as well as a -1 to Danny’s reserves which means statistically, he should control the skies but hey, we all know in a dice game that may not work out! Reecius will need to hit very hard on the turn he comes onto the table or Danny’s mechanized army will simply smoke the units that hit the table after they land.

Tuesday Night Fight! Gonna be a blast! Also, we’re giving away a flyer on the stream, everyone watching gets 1 entry into the pool, subscribers get 2 more chances to win for a total of triple the odds!

    I thought this was IG vs. IG? Looks like Space Marines vs. IG to me.

  4. Toranagaaa November 16, 2015 6:00 pm #

    Looks like you got a bit of a cheap Vendetta there bub. Should be 170.

    Excited for the rumble!

      Reecius November 16, 2015 6:06 pm #

      They’re 130 for Elysians.

      • Toranagaaa November 17, 2015 10:37 am #

        Ahhh I see… the outdated forge world discount. Classy 😉

        • Reecius
          Reecius November 17, 2015 4:53 pm #

          Yes, but they pay more for other things. It evens out.

            Fair enough, good luck!

    fun non standard ish lists 🙂

    Reecius, why use the I.Fists chapter tactics on the Skyhammer?

    • jpwyrm November 17, 2015 7:52 am #

      For Tank Hunter. And it’s usefull with the Bolters too – Reece’s play that formation for the the sneaky Pinning ability more than anything else, so making sure you hit is gold!

      • Reecius
        Reecius November 17, 2015 6:16 pm #

        Yeah, exactly. I also meta-gamed a bit, I know Danny likes to use lots of vehicles, so I put in Las Cannons to help vs. those targets. Tank Hunting Las Cannons are pretty bad ass.

    Hell yeah! Go Team Imperium Airborne! Two Vulture Reece, really? That’s gonna bring a lot of hurt. Just hope you’re as lucky against that Knight that you were last time you played this list…

    • Reecius
      Reecius November 17, 2015 4:54 pm #

      I usually bring 3 Vultures! lol

      And yeah, that Knight will be an issue.

    This really shouldn’t be advertised at IG vs IG, over 1/2 of Reeces army is marines and more importantly his warlord is a space marine

    • Reecius
      Reecius November 17, 2015 4:55 pm #

      In our Master’s league, your army is the what your biggest detachment is. My biggest is AM.

  9. Rawdogger November 17, 2015 11:32 am #

    Would this be more of a Space Marine list with an allied CAD? I don’t think I would call it an Astra Militarum list.

  10. Narfwak November 17, 2015 5:39 pm #

    Really looking forward to this, very unconventional lists on both sides! Looks fun.

      Yeah, going to be good fun!

    Great game guys, pity Danny had no luck! Looking forward to the next one

  12. Cooper Waddell November 18, 2015 8:31 am #

    Something that I think you guys missed that would actually affect the outcome:

    Linebreaker states you need to have at least a single model from the unit completely within 12 inches of the opponents table edge. The vulture that got Danny linebreaker should not have as the entire model wasn’t in the deployment zone, thus giving Reece the win at 5-4.

      Very true, I did forget that.
