A game of Epic already this year, and its only February!
Ric and I had a 3000point bash, my Imperial Guard against his Alaitoc Eldar.
My force consisted of:
Supreme Commander with Hydra
Mechanised Infantry with Hydra
Infantry company with Ogryn Support
Tank Company with Hydra
Artillary Platoon (Manticores)
Thunderbolt Fighter squadron
Ric had, from memory:
Scout detachment with Warwalkers
Guardians with Wraithlords and Wraithguards
Howling Banshees in Falcons
Striking Scorpions in Wave Serpents
Super heavies consisting of a Scorpion and a Storm Serpent
Squadron of Vypers
Squadron of fliers (I forget their name)
Deployment was fairly standard, with Eldar spread out across the field and the guard mainly in the centre, with one mechanised infantry company out on the right flank, ready to try and flank the Eldar.
|Eldar forces in a neat row.|
|Imperial Guard in a big blob.|
My tactic was fairly successful and while the game was still anyone's at the end of turn two it had not been the disaster that happened last time. Ric had some pretty good luck and mine was about average.
I even managed to pull of an assault with the Rough Riders in this game, although it was blunted somewhat when they were given a good going over in close combat by a bunch of Guardians!
