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.
