Default A wee little battlereport

OK. My first battle with the Imperial Guard is officially over. Played against a friend of mine at the local
place, Avalon. 500p armies. The only restriction was -no armor. We could use anything, and we didn't use the compulsory HQ and troop choice rules.
He used Black Templar. (pain)
We used the only table vacant. And it was a "really small" one.
My opponent (Andreas) Had a list, consisting of 21 initiates divided into 3 squads. And an Emperors Champion.
I used an Infantry platoon with a hq where every model had a stormbolter, 2squads og infantry with one grenade launcher each, a squad of hardened veterans with 3xplasmaguns, and a squad of Space Marine snipers.(x5) All had carapace armor exept the inf.plat. command squad.

He set up his forces behind the forests wich covered the entire center of the board. I placed the infantry platoon and veterans on the top of a hill and my snipers infiltrated into a tower on a factory.

Andreas got first round, and moved everything towards my waiting guardsmen, and fired 3 bolpistol shells at my snipers. One wound, one save.
My round. Snipers fired up. Four hits one wound one save. Guardsmen fired all they got, each squad made one wound each, which was saved. My command squad fired up the stormbolters, and one marine fell.

Round 2. Templars moved closer and killed a guardsman.
My snipers fired up, and actually killed someone. But no pinning. Four more marines fell to lasguns and plasma.

Round 3. Templars did as templars do best. Assaulting. Killed my command squad but one man. The JS. But was too far away to be killed. Snipers had gotten lazy and didn't kill anything. My guardsmen on the other hand wiped the entire Templar squad with plasma and lasguns, exept the Champion... There is no way I would assault him. I was in cover and would strike simultainiously with him on his charge.

Round 4. The champion killed some guardsmen who ran and got slaughtered. Hehe, the champion was in the open. My round. The champ got smoken by five rapidfire plasmashots. One overheated, and burned as only guardsmen with plasmaweapons do.
The remaining Templar squad got shortened down by some measly lasgun fire.

Round 5. Templar move forward charge and wipe every guardsman present.
And my snipers finally woke up and killed one of the remaining templar squads.

Round 6. Templar moved, and the snipers killed them all.
Then we got ourselves some good kebab.

A lot of fun were present, and I learned that I shold use heavy weapons in the future. ^^

Hmm... only Kabobs would be delicious with such a victory...

Looks great! Its a hard task to win against BT with a Champion, and with no armor? Wow!

I saw a couple of rule breakings, but you were mostly on track.

I guess you learned the value of plasma...

its a great weapon, and its nice to see a SMurf player see a guardsquad and fear it. i mean sure its not half as dangerous as a SMurf with a plasma gun but it gets the job done.(and if you think about it they kill both marines and guardsmen on a 2+).

im guessing with this battle you said scrap the rules and lets just play, right? either that or niether of you understand how to legally build an army.

Yes. We agreed beforehand, that we weren't using any vehicles, no mandatory Hq

no you can't but they agreed to play for the heck of it. once me and my friends just got together and made two massive armies ignoring force chart limits, army restrictions and squad restrictions, we used every model we owned, i think we ended up with about 21,185 points each side.

Ehm. The snipers were used as allies.
Next week should be fun with his combined BT/DE agaist my IG/Tau.
My friend is a beginner at playing and don't have enough models to complete an army, but paints every model as if it were a golden demon entry.
His painting skills are insane.
And I'm not saying that because he is my pal.

Yes. Scouts are troop choices. And quite useful as such.
I can't wait for the new scouts to arrive in my local shop. I'm planning to use
a rather large force of them in my marine army. (about 3 full squads or so.) They are perfect
with almost any strategy.

they're great against armoured companies. a space wolf player once deployed two squads behind my main battle line, lost a pair of vanquishers.
