Desert Duel

The Grey Knights of the Inquisition somehow got word that the Eremoi caste of Dark Angels has been dabbling in warp science and were dispatched to – er – dispatch them.

Tom & I got in a great game of Kill Team this evening using my new Sector Fronteris board.. He fielded his psykers and I my heavy-hitting Unforgiven. Terror Tactics was the mission.

After Tom advanced on my forward position and psybolted my heavy bolter (heavy specialist), I brought down his Demon Hammer-wielding combat specialist on turn one. Following that early action we turned out attention to the center of the board and began to duke it out.

I charged the aggressor, who had survived a double tap from my tactical sergeant (sniper) firing both profiles on his combi-plasma gun. I kept my intercessor sergeant farther from his grey knight to avoid being hit with a mind bullet.

As we fought for control of the center of the board, our gunlines sustained fire behind the melee.

But wait! The stalwart Grey Knight Andros not only survived six attacks from a power sword and killed my plasma gunner, he fell back and made a run for the edge of the board! With two flesh wounds, he advanced right out of the game, giving Tom the two points that locked up the win for the Inquisition.

We had a fun time putting two good-looking teams onto to some nice terrain and slaughtering one-another’s space marines. Things looked like a cake-walk for Tom early on, but proved fairly competitive as the game continued. We made a few mistakes we’ll try to correct next time, but overall the exciting and fast paced game played out well.

Hope you have time in your weekend for some great gaming with friends!
