Foot sloggin' it up - Blood Dragons style
Today I figured what the hell - and went with 1500 points worth of pure infantry. It's actually pretty fun how dynamic my Blood Dragons army can be. One game I am fielding 57 (!!!) dudes in power armor, the next I am fielding 8 tanks. The sheer variety I can get out of these guys will keep me playing them for quite some time. The list I fielded comprised of 4x 10 man tactical squads (each with a meltagun, powerfists and varying combi-weapons / bolt pistols on sergeants) a 10 man devastator squad (4x las), plasma honor guard, captain, librarian.
Played a battle mission vs. a really nice looking Imperial Fist army. He also plays Tau and kicks butt at the store with them. This battle mission was Ambush (probably more specific, I am not familiar with the battle missions rules) where I deployed in the middle and he got to deploy along the sides (I was the force being ambushed). Even though the battle was pretty uneventful it was fun. I don't blame my opponent for being careful - I would also not want to charge head first into that many marines! Game ended 2-1 KPs in my favor.
Second game I played today was using my typical mech list vs. CSM in preparation for a 1750 pt LEGION tournament next week. Units worked how they were supposed to (including Vindicators, *gasp*) and I ended up winning that game as well.
Hopefully the posts will be coming more frequently now... Although I am really addicted to World of Tanks. Dark Eldar are still in the works.
More to come
