Default First Marine Victory

Fellow brothers,
As a new Dark Angels inductee I am pleased to announce that my first battle was a solid victory against tyranids in a 1500 point game; the scenario was secure and control. It was very close up until the end. We each had a loot counter but I destroyed more of his units and was able to keep more of mine above 50% strength. I basically played them how I would play my tau as far as deployment and tactics but I guess it payed off.

Just wanted to let you all know.

Peace Brothers

Using Terminators against Orks is just inviting a good krupin'. Choppa's were,pretty much put in the game to counter Termies. Congo Ratz on the victory, just watch out next time.

By the way, good job BambooDragon on the victory.

Ahh but with the assault classification of the storm bolter it is very possible to just back up constantly firing into the orky ranks. Plus orks in combat is all a matter of numbers. Plus the scattered remnants of a mob are not nearly as dangerous due to the fact that they will usually be wounding you on 5s.

Add a few assault cannons and/or heavy flamers to the mix and thats not at mowing down orks. Also throw in some Assault Terminators with Lightning Claws and that could really hurt, especially on the charge.

True, True. Both of you have good points, Vash and Fish 'Ead.

I wasn't saying that one of da Boyz could counter a Termie, more that you can't lean back on your 2+ save as much as you can when facing, say, Guardsmen in melee combat.

You cannot really argue that the choppa is really good at killing anything in Terminator armour when it hits, though.
