Default A Testement To Orders

Last night I played a game against a nidzilla list, when he put down 5 MC's and some genestealers in just a low 1000 point game, I was pretty worried.

My list:
Command squad w/Regimental Standard & Autocannon
Chimera

Platoon Command w/ Mortar
Infantry Squad w/Autocannon x2
Heavy Weapon Squad w/Lascannon

Veteran Squad Grenadiers w/Metlagunx3 & Power Weapon

Valkyrie w/MRP

LRBT w/ Lascannon x2

My list seemed quite unable to deal with a nidzilla list, having only 5 lascannons and 3 meltaguns. Meltagun range is NOT where you want any squad to be with Tyranids

His list consisted of three fexes, two tyrants, and two squads of genestealers. I'm unsure of the upgrades he had given them, aside from the Tyrants getting a 2+ save. Pretty sure they all had scything talons.

We played seize ground (4) and Spearhead.

Fortunately I was able to setup and go first, So I took the edge of the board with two objectives in it and one close by. I spaced out my infantry to deny any outflanking, and setup covering two objectives.

He decided not to outflank, probably a wise choice. and he didn't attempt to seize the ini. My Valk used it's scout move to get to the side of a Genestealer squad, and to ensure that anything that attempted to deal with the Valk would have to stay away from my main army and the objectives.

I really think had I been playing with 4e guard I would have had a big loss. What won me an incredibly victory was orders. Twin-linking my lascannon HW squad ensured a lot of damage to the MC's and oddly enough the FRFSRF was amazingly effective, causing a good deal of wounds.

I ended up tabling him on turn 5, and all I lost was a Valkyrie, half of a veteran squad, and one infantry squad.

This is a pretty good note to end on, as I'm deploying on Tuesday and most likely won't be able to get anymore real games in as I have to pack my bags and everything. Then I'll have to wait 6 months to play 40k again

So it's your turn in the sandpit, eh?

Good luck to you.

He didn't shoot your Lascannon Weapon teams? My nidzilla opponents make my heavy weapon teams target #1, mainly because they're so easy for 'nids to insta-kill. A hive tyrant can wipe the squad out in one round of fire with a venom-cannon.

Perhaps you were able to distract him with tanks and the valk?

Thanks to the spearhead deployment, my HW team was all the way across the board from him. So he ended up focusing on what was closer to him, being my Valk and veterans.

I also imagine that the fexes and HT's were pretty bare considering he had 5 MC's and 2 squads of genestealers in only 1000 points.

He's going to the mountains probably. We're leaning way from going to the sand box as much as we use too.
