Chaos Space Marines
Chosen x 8
Melta x 2
3x Zerkers x 8
3 x Land Raider
John gets 1st turn.
Fires and takes 1 lance off a Ravager
I fire and do absolutely nothing at all.
His chosen outflank on my left side of the board close to one of the objectives. Putting them right in the path of my Venom and Duke/Trueborn inside of it.
He uses his Land Raiders to shoot down a Ravager and wreck one of the Wyches raiders. The resulting explosion kills 3 ladies inside.
I wreck a Land Raider with a lucky Raider shot.
I shoot down a few Chosen and charge the rest. Duke "Rends" down 3 and the Trueborn kill another. He passes and we dance.
He takes down a Warrior Raider killing 3 inside. They run away.
Duke finishes off the Chosen, gaining his unit a Pain Token.
I shoot down 3 Zerkers that had disembarked the wrecked Land Raider. Wreck a 2nd Land Raider and kill 2 of its occupants after they get out.
After having sustained a wound from landing in dangerous terrain on turn 2 I shoot it down with the Trueborn, gaining them a 2nd Pain Token.
His turn doesn't amount to much other than him trying to grab objectives.
My hellions grab the objective in my deployment zone. I take down the last Land Raider and dual charge the Zerkers inside, with a unit of Wychs and Duke's unit.
Duke "Rends 3" and the Trueborn take down a 4th. The Wychs finish the rest of the squad.
We each have 1 objective at this point and all I have to do is attempt to knock him off his and its game over.
He basically passes the turn to me.
And this is where I get too aggressive. Instead of shooting him off the objective I attempt to charge in with Warriors in order to contest it. And I get smacked up big time. Loss the combat and run away. He doesn't catch me but now I am running (below 50%), I need the game to continue to have a chance. I roll a 1, game over. Draw.
We tally it up 12-11 in my favor.
