The game
Couldn’t be more different from last opponent - going from a horde army to an elite army.

Suspicions started when Wayne moved a building into his deployment zone for some extra cover. Then he moved out of it without rolling difficult terrain, and targeted a unit of mine in terrain claiming they didn’t get a save. Finally he tried to claim a save for his men when I returned fire. Perhaps this was just inexperience though as he also got mixed up with the daemon summoning rules (in his favour of course!).

Anyway I won the battle when I hosed down his possessed with heavy bolter fire from the Havocs and Predator. I dithered with the Daemon Prince and he ended up doing nothing for the whole game, but the possessed and close combat squad did well again.

Result: Win

Learning points
  • I MUST check the rules on difficult terrain with my opponent before the game.
  • Be more positive with Daemon Prince otherwise he is wasted.
  • I roll well for possessed in every game. Long may it continue!
  • This is a VERY tight army list. I have not lost with it yet, even though I am new to Chaos. Is it bordering on the cheesy? I will change it for next week and find out.
