Bad start to the week, as I went to base coat my greyknights they slipped off the box and the Inquisitor lost peter pointer. . . .
Anywho managed to get in a game in yesterday with my boys
Inquisitor rad and psychotroke grenades and psychic upgrade
5 purifiers with two psycannons, two FH's anda DH
Wolf lord Frost axe, belt of russ
Lone wolf with mark of the wulfen
9 Grey hunters
9 Grey hunters with plasma gun
*side note my opponent is a regular whfb player but this is his first game in about a year of 40k so essentially it was a getting to know how to play/rules game*
We rolled up pitched battle with capture and control.
I set up first deploying just behind some ruins with inquisitor attached.
He deployed one grey hunters (with plasma gun) unit with wolf lord on his objective and sent the lone wolf and other squad of grey hunters on a hunting mission.
Moved up into the ruins, nothing in range so ran to get better field of fire.
Wolf lord squad hunkers down. lone wolf and grey hunters close in on the grey knights
Open fire on the advancing grey hunters mowing down 3
Lone wolf continues his advance grey hunters move up and rapid fire Inquistor is wounded and Halberd guy bites the dust
Open fire on the GH's again killing 1
GH's open fire but GK's stand firm, Lone wolf assaults - then gets bitch slapped by the remaining FH. Consolidate off the ruins.
GK's move up to the SW's open fire killing 2 and they break.
SW's rally and fire onto the GK's killing a psycannon.
GK's shoot/ assault GH's and wipe them out but lost the Inquistor.
GH's with WL move to intercept the GK's
GK's shoot the second squad of GH's mowing down 4!
GH's move up and rapid fire, GK's PA holds once more!
GK's shoot taking another 2 out then assaults. FH wipes out all bar the wolf lord and 1 GH, wolf lord fluffs only kills one marine (psycannon guy) last GH also fluffs DH wielding GK slays both the Wolf lord and remaining GH.
I'm aware this was an easy win due to the noobish level of opponent, but I managed to get a few games in and hopefully my opponent learnt some stuff about 40k and SW's as I helped where and when I could.
I'm impressed with the abilities of the purifiers and I am strongly tempted to base a unit or two focusing on a bit of cc! Esp backed up by an Inquisitor. But that is for another story. *apologies* for the lack of interesting story like Mr Ratvan, I will endeavour to bulk out the next one.
