Today I got a friend from my dorm to go with me to the hobby shop. I had enough marines to make two Ultramarine detatchments
at 750pts each to fight 1500pts of Thousand Sons. The board was like a volcanic wasteland. By the time the lists were put
together we just decided to make it one Ultramarine force so the lists are as follows:
Ultramarines 7th Company:
Master Captain Vash Thalion
-Storm Bolter, Power Weapon, Terminator Honors, Iron Halo,
Master of Sanctity Claudius
-Bolt Pistol, Terminator Honors, Jump Pack, Artificer Armor, Melta Bombs,
Tactical Squad Tyriel (10)
-Terminator Honors, Power Fist, melta gun, frag grenades
-Terminator Honors, Power Weapon, Plasma Gun, Missil Launcher
Tactical Squad Altaris (10)
Tactical Squad Eurida (6)
Devastator Squad Voltaris (7)
-Lascannon, Plasma Cannon, Heavy
Bolter, Missil Launcher
Assault Squad Herrion (5)
-Terminator Honors, Power Fist, Plasma Pistol x3, melta bombs
-Venerable, Twin Linked Lascannon, Missil Launchers
Thousand Sons Sorcerer Lord
-Power weapon, eye of tzeentch, thralls x3 and likely some other stuff
-Sorcerer with power fist, thralls x3, eye of tzeentch, rhino with storm bolter
Rubric Marines (10)
with power fist, thralls x3, eye of tzeentch, rhino with storm bolter, banner of chaos
Rubric Marines (10)
with daemonic possession, thralls x3, eye of tzeentch, rhino with storm bolter
Defiler with indirect fire and daemonic
Greater Daemon of Tzeentch
Daemon Prince thingy of some kind... dont ask cause I dont know...
So those were the two armies now to deployment.
Deadnaught went behind the hill on the left, Captain Thalion went with Tactical squad Tyriel behind some boulders just
left of the center of the deployment with the Devs on a hill to the right and squad Altaris to their right. Squad Oscelo went
behind squad Tyriel and squad Eurida went to the left of squad Oscelo. Squad Herrion with Chaplain Claudius went behind squad
Oscelo and behind the hill they were standing on.
Defiler went in the far left corner with a rhino right infront of it with marines mounted. The second rubric squad went
on the hill next to the Defiler with their rhino down below and at an angle further blocking the Defiler and the last rhino
went more towards the center in a small alley between the cliffs.
Lots of Ultramarines compared to not a whole lot of Thousand Sons but thats how it goes they are really expencive and
really tough to kill if you dont get lucky.
So a Picture or two at the end of Deployment:
Ultramarines!!! Woo that made me happy, my friend brought with him good luck, though it seems my luck only turns when
I have an ally, oh well.
Deadnaught moved up behind squad Eurida, Tactical squad Tyriel moved onto the rocks and the Assault
Marines rushed up behind them all spead out. Squad Altaris fires on the right rhino by the defiler and immobolizes it and
destroys its storm bolter. The Dreadnaught fired on the other rhino, hit with both guns, penetrated its armor with both guns
and a 4 and a 6!!! The rhino blows up and clears the sight to the Defiler. Squad Oscelo fires, hits, penetrates and blows
off the Battle Canon. The weapon I was most fearing gone in one blow. Devs and squad Altaris fire on the Rubric marines on
the hill killing three of them.
Rhino on far right moves forward and unloads the rubric marines and the sorcerer lord. All shooting
goes at the Devastators and kills 4 of the 7 leaving the missil launcher, plasma cannon and lascannon, the marines pass morale.
Defiler kills one marine from squad Tyriel.
Assault squad moved to the right near the Thousand Sons, Tactical Squad Tyriel moves further right. All
others stay put. Shooting shows the hurricane missils shot off the Defiler and all but the sorcerer lord are killed in shooting.
Chaplain and Squad Herrion assault the Lord, lord killed all 5 of the squad but Chaplain Cladius cleaved him in half.
Battle conceded. Game over.
4 Members of Squad Voltaris
1 Member of Squad Tyriel
Thousand Sons Cassualties:
12 Rubric Marines
So a quick game that was lots of fun and a victory for my still fledgling
Ultramarines. Hopefully Ill play a few quick combat patrol games with a couple people from the dorm tommorrow to see
about getting them more into the game. Getting to the hobby shop is a pain so if I can get people here into it that would
Im happy with how everything performed, it was a fun laid back match.
Time to go try and find a brush that works... my old one kinda... fell apart from use.
