Thunderdome Battle Recap and our last 5th Ed Tournament

Well I will try to make this short and sweet in regards to the Thunderdome fight. I could not roll anything other then 1s and 2s to save my life. In the first 10 rolls I had like 7 1s and that was the trend most of the game. TL-Lascannons from the Land Raider rolls to hit were 2s then the re-rolls were 1s. On my turn 1 my drop pod scattered 2" (snake eyes) I did manage to pen the Psyfleman 3 times, but the results were 1,1,2... and it was like that all game... not much else I can really say. If the dice aren't with you, or even average your not going to win. And in this case all my major shooting with Twin-Linked and built to counter bad rolls, but I had no such luck...

On the plus side, my opponent bought me custom dice to match my army (gold/blue)! Yay for new dice and a cool guy Biffomatic!

Now for our last 5th ed. tournament.....

Entering "The Thunderdome"!

Well tonight I set into "The Thunderdome" to face my impending doom of Biffomatic and his Gray Knights/Draigowing. I have had 2 games against Gray Knights since I knew I was going to be facing them in "The Dome", one was a tie against an almost exact copy of Biffs list and the other was the win that I posted the BatRep of. Both games were against the less experienced DaddyT, so I don't know what kind of "advanced" trick Biff may have up his sleeves and that makes me a bit nervous.

it is time...

Battle Report: Celestial Lions VS Gray Knights

So I was invited over to DaddyT's house to get in a game of 40K the other night, which was nice because I have been itching for a game. I had written up a new army list I was wanting to try earlier in the day, and DaddyT wanted to try out a Gray Knights list he was planning on using for a tournament. DaddyT thought we should do a BatRep, so here you go!

We decided neither one of us had a specific mission or deployment type we wanted to play so we just rolled randomly. We ended up rolling 1 objective each and Spearhead deployment. DaddyT won the roll for 1st Turn and Deployment.

Table overview.

Stormtalon cheese?

So after a bit of though I have thrown out an idea of a tactic with the Stormtalon to some forums to get some input on it. Now I will throw it out to you guys.

The Escort Craft special ability states that the Stormtalon can escort a unit with a couple minor exclusions.
The unit can not Deep Strike.
A Stormtalon can not escort another Stormtalon.
A unit can have a max of one Stormtalon escort.

Is this our future?
