Quick Battle Reports

Ran this 2K list twice today…  First was the auto tie mission.  I believe I would have had a better chance of winning if if I had remembered to bring the Wolf Scouts onto the board…  Doh…  Long Fangs were awesome.  I played against Salamanders and got lucky a bit (had a deal with fire so that twin linked flamers did poorly) 🙂  Also, had a turn two smash against a Land Raider Redeemer that kept me from being flamed.  Vulcan took a lot of “Killin”  – The termies that rode with him just got shot to death.  Ended up trying to pull a turn 5 objective grab but got my speeder plasma’d.  Mostly the game was stuffing close combat up the middle and blowing the hell out of stuff with Missile Launchers….  Which is indeed why we play right 🙂

Second game was against a mostly foot slogging Tau army. (I know, it sounds crazy)  My opponent brought the obligatory three Railheads, once Crisis suit HQ, 1 small squad of stealth suits, and a bunch of foot slogging firewarriors and tau with hounds.  Once the three railheads dropped there wasn’t anything that could really pop a transport.  Dropping 10 templates on the enemy inside a ruin where you’re wounding on a 3 was a special bit of fun though.  The fluff behind his army was that these were guys who dropped out of a Manta and were a strike forcy thing….  Perhaps there’s a way to make that viable- but I know I just had too many templates and took out the railheads to quickly for them to do any real damage…. 

So here’s my current Space Wolf list……   My buddy gave me the idea about running multiple Rune Priests and it really did seem like a good idea (ie, D6, Str 7 attacks are pretty good a popping transports)  Seems to have good synergy and enough redundancy to be pretty competative…  we’ll see…  I’ll keep playing this list for a while… but if I end up REALLY liking it, I’ve got two predators, three vindis and a LR that will get repainted to joining the “B” Team.

All in all a fun day of  gaming…  Still kicking myself about the Scouts in the first game though…. 😦
