|The gribbly little bastards all lined up!|
My opponent had basically a 'mirror' list, each side of his battle line had a unit of gargoyles, hive guard with blasters and termigaunts followed by a Tervigon. In the middle he had biovores and some evil gribbly things that took a crap ton of shooting; venom thingers if I remember correctly. His plan, like mine was pretty simple; beat face. I like it. So I deployed heavy to the left side trying to pummel them into submission and collapse that flank so I could then deal with the right flank. Because of the crazy planet terrain for this round those two tree stands in front of his army counted as completely blocking line of sight and impassible terrain. So i basically funneled him into three separate lanes that I could use to bottle him up and take him bit by bit.
|Bug press forward on the right flank!|
|Spece Wolves beating face!|
That is the remains of three full Grey Hunter packs and the Venerable Dreadnought they drug along for the fun. But 1600 points of bugs were erased by turn 5 and we lost none of our long fangs and still had another squad of Grey Hunters waiting on the right flank for the assault wave that never made it thanks to the Rune Priest and his JOTWW.
Tomorrow the second game for this round: Salamanders!
