The game
Wayne uncovered the objective in his first turn but made a game of it by rushing forward with the unit. I broke one of the mutant squads with my storm troopers in the rhino but they were then wiped out by the spawn. The daemonettes took out the rhino but 6 of them were killed in the subsequent explosion.

Meanwhile on my left, my Inquisitor Lord, death cult assassin and a storm trooper squad assaulted the mutants with the objective. I won the combat but was then assaulted by the spawn. The objective changed hands four more times as the assassin died, then the Inquisitor with the psycannon, the last daemonette and finally one of the spawn managed to keep hold of it.

A cracking, tense game.

Result: Loss

Learning points
  • Kudos to Wayne who made a game of it by rushing forward despite picking up the objective.
  • The game devolved into an assault scrum in the centre of the table and unsurprisingly the spawn emerged victorious. Humans are frail in a fight.
  • My barrage actually hit something - the basilisk - hurrah! But then I rolled 2 one's in a row and it was only immobilised - boo!
