Round 2 Results in!
And boy do we have some real upsets for you!
Romero's Own vs Zodd
The Combi-meltas drop one Obliterator, while the Combi-Flamers wound a second. In return, a combi-flamer Terminator is exploded by Plasma Cannon fire. The Champion and another Terminator are dropped in close combat by the Obliterators, but manage to wipe out the Obliterators along the way.
Romero's Own moves on.
Nero Genesis vs Magpie_Oz
The Jokearo roll poorly, only gaining increased weapon range. One Storm Bolter Acolyte dies to Overheats thanks to the Neuroweb, with another plus a Plasma Gunner dying to the Commander. In return the Warband manage to destroy the Shield Drone. No wounds are dealt in close combat. The following turn, the Tau Commander only manages to kill a Storm Shield Acolyte, and suffers three wounds in the process. However, this is partially made up in close combat where a Jokearo and Plasma Gun Acolyte are slain. The final Plasma Gunner overheats the following turn, but not before he deals the final wound to the Commander. As they are not in base-to-base combat, the Failsafe Detonator fails to score any hits.
Magpie_Oz moves on.
Filler #5 vs Xlioe
Five Cultists are slain by Shoota-fire, while a whole thirteen Spanna Boyz bite the dust in return. A further six Culists are slain in close combat, but the remaining Boyz are out-horded and wiped out.
Xlioe moves on.
CE5511 vs AAAAAAAAARRGGHH
No wounds are scored by the Orks Shootas on the Mutilators. Not one. Even worse for them, they fail to break this curse in the Assault Phase, their attacks just failing to land. In return, the lightning claw morphs shred six Boyz. The following turn starts marginally better, with one Mutilator slain by Shoota-fire. Eight further Boyz are pulverised by Power Maces, but three Mutilators are slain in return. The final one is picked off next turn.
AAAAAAAAARRRGGHH moves on.
MidnightSun vs returnoftheclown
The Great Unclean One rolls Plague Wind for its psychic power, and Cleaving Strike and Touch of Uncreation for its Gifts. Plague Wind is successfully denied by the Orks in the first turn, giving them the opening to inflict a devastating four wounds. The Greater Daemon can only slay four Orks before being overwhelmed and torn shrieking, limb from immaterial limb.
MidnightSun moves on.
High_Seraph vs Karnax
A rather short and anti-climactic match, with the Dark Eldar simply obliterating the unsuspecting Ravenwing in a single shooting phase.
Karnax moves on.
Filler #4 vs The Meddler
The Jokearo roll the Rending upgrade. A Power Maul Crusader is taken down by the Demo Charge, with three Marauders killed in return. Four more are then slain in close combat for the price of three Crusaders. Three more Marauders are slain by Acolytes, causing the remaining Brutes to flee.
The Meddler moves on.
Angel of Blood vs routine
A potentially nasty match up for both sides here, with the threat of melta facing up against the threat of unending blender claws. Three Guardsmen are slain by the Dreadnought in shooting. In return, the Searchlight must have been blinding, as the two meltaguns only manage to Stun (which is promptly ignored by the Death Company Dreadnought), and destroy the Heavy Flamer arm. Even one-handed, the enraged Dreadnought minces ELEVEN Guardsmen, causing the rest to turn tail and run.
Angel of Blood moves on like a badass.
So, all the fillers are now eliminated leaving us with the Quarter-finals. Congratulations to all those who made it there, and commiserations to those who didn't. The next round will be up later this week, so until then I'll leave you with the matchups:
Karnax vs Angel of Blood
Magpie_Oz vs AAAAAAAAARRRGGHH
Romero's Own vs Xlioe
MidnightSun vs The Meddler
