BfS Day 2 - Games 1 and 2

Hey guys, Huron here. Today I have another battle report for you from my games 1 and 2 of the Battle For Salvation tournament held on the weekend of October 8-10, 2010. I had fun. My first opponent, John, played a Shrike Space Marine list with 2 Assault Squads, Normal Terminators, a Vindicator, and then a few Assault Squads... oh and a squad of sniper scouts. We played a close fought game till the last few rounds when some bad dice on his part rolls turned the game in my favor and I had a solid win, taking VPs, 3 of 4 table quarters, and all 5 KPs.

This ran me into Jeff, a BA player with a tank heavy Alpha Strike list. He won the right to go first and picked a quarter that except for a bit of difficult terrain, but me in a wide open deployment area (we were playing spearhead). Long story short, he zipped up and unloaded, killing, stunning, or shaking everything I had on the table pretty much, leaving me unable to strike back until the end of turn 2. At that point I didn't really have much left and my dice rolls were so bad that nothing was hitting anyways, it was a miracle he didn't destroy me complete and table me. At the end of the game I had a few Marines, Khan, and 2 rhino left hiding in a corner contesting an objective. I had a good game with Jeff and finally got to see what Alpha strike BA can do.

Here is the video:

Ouch, brutal second game. Well that left me squarely 1-1, which set me up for my best game of the day, vs Neil from the 11th company. More on that next time though.

Thank you for reading.


  1. Good battle reports Jay. How much prep have you had against BA and Space Wolf players for these tourney's? They seem to be the win button armies right now from what i have heard.

  2. Hey loving your Howling griffons. Would you be interested in joining up with our little group? Come have a look and see what you think
