Battle of the New Hobby Room

For the first battle in my new hobby space Tom & Will squared off in a match-up of Will’s Harlequins and Tom’s new Grey Knights.

Tom made clever use of terrain to pick off two Harlequins in the first two turns with psybolt. Will was grabbing objective points and jumping out to a quick lead, but with only six harlequin models it looked like Tom might break Will’s team quickly.

Will used the Prismatic Blur stratagem to boost his invulnerable save to 3+ on the first two turns and dodged a hail of bullets from the humans on the first two turns. Tom rolled great (on 18 shots per turn), but Will saved 100% of his wounds and only needed one reroll.

Not where you want to be! On turn four Tom’s justicar got jumped by a player. The Knights kept the xenos in the midrange for several turns, but eventually the mobility of the harlequins proved decisive and a couple of close combat struggles opened up across the board.

Come on, guys! Couldn’t you have fought on the lovely painted terrain?

It was a fun game to watch and a tense one for the players. Will’s harlequins came out on top, which I would not have predicted after two turns. Once he stabilized on the board, his point lead was insurmountable.

We had a great afternoon of gaming and out-hanging. I’m looking forward to lots more games of Kill Team in my new den of nerdery. I’ll see you next time our forces clash!
