Kublacon Game Summaries

So a few quick game summaries from Kublacon.  All the games were fun with great guys to play so that was of course really nice!

I did not take a lot of pictures so this is not going to be a very thorough report.

First up I had Justin's Footdar!  I played Justin in the doubles game a the BAO and he is just one hilarious duded!   His army looked something like:
5x Fire Dragons
5x Fire Dragons
10x Guardians
10x Guardians 
10x Dire Avengers
10x Dire Avengers
3x Guardian Jetbikes
10x Harlequins

I'm not going to even take a stab at the equipment used!  But it was a great looking army.

So the game was corner deployment and kill points.  I think we both had 13 kp to offer, I won the roll off to go first.

For the first two turns of this game things went my way.  He wasn't able to pop either BW. Snikrot came in and owned the Harequins (famers and then CC) before they could become a problem, and I had picked up another few Kps.

Then on turn 3 I waaghed Ghaz into the Avatar and the Manz into one Wraithlord.  I thought I would also get the 30 boyz into his DA w/ Eldrad but they came up a 1/8" too short so they had to settle for just a Fire Dragon unit.

And as things often turn out for my orks when Ghaz does well the army does well.  When he doesn't then, well... they don't.

It took 4 rounds of combat for the Avatar to put Ghaz down.  Ghaz could not put enough wounds on him because fortune just saved his ass.  Not getting to and ridding the table of Eldrad turned out to be my doom.  The two other Wraithlords made combat with the Manz and while we traded wounds they insta killed the Manz while the wounds were spread around the Wraithlords.

Then the wraithlord got free to flamer my remaining boyz and it was all bad news for me.

I think the final bit ended 8-5 or so and mercifully ended at 5.  I think he got the bonus objective for holding the center of the board.

Game 2 was against Mike Biles DA.  I've played Mike at last twice with my orks vs is nurgle themed daemons.  I think we each had a win against each other.

His DA looked like:
Bike Command Squad
Termie Command Squad
Th/SS Termies
Th/SS Termies

Something like that.  All the upgrades you could want (apothecaries, missile launchers, etc).

The game was dawn of war, single objectives.  I'm looking at his list and not sure what I'm exactly going to do.  Then he wins to go first.  I don't even remember what/how he set up but I just decided to put everything in reserve.

His bikes blast forward and I think his command squad termies were either on the board or come down about mid board and run up a bit.  LRs move on to mid field.

My lootas go off on the far flank to just take some pot shots but I don't expect them to do much since I'm looking at termies and LRs.

At some point soon here we make combat.  A few things go my way.  For one it seems like his apothocaires end up going down in the first round of combat so that helps.  I think I also had some lucky shooting with the shootas at some point popping out a few termies.  As the game goes on they also manage to Klaw the land radier to death.

The Lootas and Snikrot are entirely useless so it's like playing a 1200 pt ork list.

In the end the game was tied on turn 5, then turn 6, but then it goes to turn 7.  Aside from the 600 points of useless I have about 8 shootas contesting his objective with his LR, and about 7 Ard boyz sitting in cover on my objective.  Since all he has is the LR he can really only contest the one, but he still manages to shoot 3 ard boyz dead.  However I make my LD check to hold the objective and win the game.

We both get the bonus point for killing the most expensive HQ.

The last game I play is against Matt's Space Marines.  He was playing a mish mash of stuff that is best I can call a 'for fun' list.

If I recall it looked something in the lines of:

10 Sterngaurd in Drop Pod
10 Tacts in Drop Pod
10 Tacts in Drop Pod
10 Shooty Scouts
5-8 CC Scouts
Vene Dread in Drop Pod
5 Th/SS termies
Land Speeder Storm
5 Legion of the Damned
Thunderfire Cannon

Long table edge and 5 objectives.  Bonus points for holding all 5 objectives or tabling the opponent.

I won the roll off and, being a guy who plays drop armies, made him go first.  I think he started his shooty scouts on the table, and dropped his dread and a tact squad turn one.   The dread had an assault cannon and couldn't get through the side armore/KFF of the BWW.  The tacts shot up a few lootas but they made there check.

My turn one I believe I shot most of the tact squad to pieces and stunned the dread.

His turn 2 I think he got the sterngaurd and the Storm/CC scouts on the table.  I think he also rolled in his Thunderfire from reserves in the back.  His shooting did very little again.  His scouts go after my other lootas but they stick in combat.

My turn two and I get snikrot.  I decide to put snikrot on the Thunderfire as most of my army is going to be tied up on my side of the board.  I send the ard boyz after the CC scouts and storm.  I waagh the 30 boyz up on to his scouts.   I send Ghaz after the manz and am able to keep the fist off the manz for one round.

From there things just went badly for him.  As you can imagine most of those combats go my way if not that round after the following.  My Deathrollas pretty much spend the game ramming drop pods.   His dread does jump my 30 boyz and they get tied up in combat.

His Legion of the Damned land but don't have great targets.  Ghaz goes after them and they remained tied up the rest of the game.  His termies take a bold deep strike that goes sideways (literally) on to my BW and they are destroyed.

On the top of the last turn of the game my Klaw finally pops the dread.  Ghaz is solo with 2 last Legion of the Damned.  On my turn I move guys so that if the the last 2 guys die I have all 5 objectives but right now they are contesting.

In the end he makes one save so he has one model left.

I was a bit tired at this point, but I should have just charged my 15 shoota boyz into that combat.  It would have pulled me off two objectives but I forgot that wiping him gave me the bonus also.

I didn't think the 3 points would matter, but I should have known better.

Matt was a great sport through it all though it was a bit of a shellacking.  But all my opponents were fun so that was nice.  And indeed there were some other great people I met too.  One guy had some great 'juice' that complimented the beer my other buddy brought.  It was nice to see some friends I hadn't seen for awhile.  So all of these things still made it a great gaming day.

So another Kublacon goes down in the books with all of its oddities but good times regardless.
