Default BasementBatreps - Tyranids Vs Astra Militarum | 1750 Pts | Cloak and Shadows

Got another game in, with it being the first to feature my new Lictors and Deathleaper. Was a tense match with no real sign of who would be the victor. Really enjoyed how it played out and hope you all like it.

Enjoy,

A really enjoyable battle report!

I like how it looked like it could have gone either way a few times too. Also, really nice to see your Lictors and Deathleaper in action. I have them myself but I find it frustrating that they cant charge the turn they enter play (obviously for balance reasons) because in stories thats what makes them so dangerous! On the table I find that my guys either get shot a lot and die before they charge... or because of their poor Armour save, if they don't kill what ever they are hitting, they definitely die. I dont know, maybe I just get really unlucky with the dice.

Really cool though, thanks for posting that up.

Now if you could find some way to make the Pyrovore seem useful I'll be very, very impressed indeed.

Thanks for watching! It was such a fun game to play. I was actually very impressed with my Deathleaper and Lictor too. I am currently working on finishing up the rest of my Lictors so I can run Deathleapers assassin brood.

I think the key with the Lictors is to just put so many other targets out there that the Lictors get some what ignored until they are close enough to take things down.

I am going to try running these guys again soon and really hope they can perform well again.
