Showdown at Slice and Dice!
Last weekend, me and Khairul went to S&D for a game, my Cadian 7th versus his Saim Hann Eldar. Me and Khairul were a bit rusty after not playing 40k for awhile but we had good slicing dicing good time. An annihilation/dawn of war mission which I won by a few kill points. Most of the patrons there were impressed by Khairul's clean and beautifully painted Saim Hann and it was good to see the them in action again. Next week I'm planning to try out BFG using Khairul's models for the time being.
Next I had a game with Win, S&D's main man. A super cool guy and had an awesome round of 40k against his IG Deathkorps. We played a 1750 point game and it was spearhead/capture & control. Win's Deathkorps truly followed the 'war of attrition' ideology and used mass infantry platoons, cavalry charges supported by Leman Russes, Medusa artie and lascannons heavy support units. My mechanized Cadians were overwhelmed and they kept on coming even with high ammount of casualties. Win's Deathkorp was in my deployment zone by turn 3 and the Cadians were on the defensive all the way. The only option was to outflank his objective with my Valkyrie but it went to my deployment zone instead. Precised and well ordered Lascannons shots disrupted my tanks and were rendered useless. The game went on to turn 6 and the Deathkorp was able to contest my objective in my deployment zone, with a handful troops managed to reached the Cadian's line. Deathkorp 1, Cadian 0. It was an awesome and both were pretty much exhausted. That's it for now, till then, laters..
