So after a rather rushed lunch period we are back at it for round 2. I get to the table and there are several armies there... so wait around and another army shows up too and it looks a bit familiar. I think Ive seen pictures of that recently. Yep is Sean(Abusepuppy) and his TSHFT winning firepower army of doom. Well at least it wasnt the two 4 Imperialknight armies that were sitting there... mission two is kill points.
At least we both have lots.
I pass first turn to Sean. He sets up as seen. Hornets are white, so one is hiding on that paper. I set up a bunch of mines just out of smart missile range and a single flyrant... had ideas of maybe seizing for first blood.
I fly off the board with the tyrant to end my turn 1. His turn 2 he summons demonettes to take middle board objective for maelstrom point.
My turn 4. Flyrants shuffle around. Mawloc returns and kills two broadsides near mid board. Lictor makes 10 inch charge into some dire avengers and kills 3 and sweeps them. Mucolid charges and blows up some bloodletters and demonettes. Shooting finishes off solo broadside and thins some demonettes and dire avengers. Other tyrant guard moves on into same position to take the objective for maelstrom again.
Turn 5. Sean shoots into warlord tyrant with riptide to no effect. Farseer flys next to tyrant guard to block objective and hide from flyrants. Remaining demonettes and bloodletters charge mawloc and fail to kill it... it hits and runs straight up towards some remaining dire avengers.
I believe that is where we call the game. Clock is running long and Im way ahead on kill points and about to pick up several more. All he will likely have left after the turn would be farseer and riptide. Sean was a great opponent with a great list. But it wasnt to be his day today. Brutal turn 3 did him in, a kill point hole that he couldnt quite dig out of. Was a pleasure to play him, filled with name jokes... we still think they paired the second round alphabetically because the odds of Sean playing Sean.
