Blood Angels Vs Eldar 1250

Army Lists
1250 points

Blood Angels
Astorath
Death Company with Jump Packs (JDC)
Death Company (FDC) in Razorback with Twin-linked Heavy Bolter (Bolterback)
Death Company Dreadnought (DCD) with Blood Talons and a Drop Pod
Assault Squad (RAS) with Razorback in “Lasplas” configuration (Plaserback)
2 x Attack Bike with Multi Melta
Land Speeder with two Heavy Bolters

Eldar
Farseer (Lv3)
Avatar
Fire Dragons with Exarch
Striking Scorpions with Exarch
2 x Dire Avengers with Exarch
Guardian Defenders with Scatter Laser
Wraithguard

Deployment
The Scouring, Dawn of War, six objectives placed as follows: both 2s were are the short board edge to the left of the BA’s deployment zone, both 3s were on the long board edge that was the BA’s deployment zone, the 4 was quite central and the 1 was in cover near the Eldar board edge. The board itself has three wooded hills that count as mystical forests.
Farseer rolls Eldritch Storm, Guide and Fortune
BA Warlord Trait is a waste of time, Eldar get to re-roll all 1s to hit in the shooting phase once per game.

The BA castle up with the Razorbacks at the forefront and the JDC with Astorath are placed in cover behind them. Both Attack Bikes and the Land Speeder occupy the left flank while the DCD and Pod is in reserve. BA are due to have the first turn.

In response the Eldar deploy their Guardians opposite the Razors and in cover on their board edge. This forest is a Overgrown Spinethorn meaning they get a 2+ save against grenades... Everything else fans out behind that hill that is just in front of their deployment zone. From nearest to farthest (BA persepective): Wraithguard -> Avatar -> Fire Dragons -> DA1 -> Farseer -> -> DA2. The Striking Scorpions infiltrate into hill that is in the BA deployment zone. This hill is an Ironbark forest which meant that they got a 3+ cover save...

fs.php?id=660c53661c1452bf29a2803f879e10

Turn one

BA
~ With no one falling to the Red Thirst, the Drop Pod lands near DA2 on the far-right flank and the DCD disembarks. Both are currently in cover from the majority of the Eldar. Both Razors and JDC advance towards the centre of the board while the bikes and Speeder move up (near to leftmost of the 2 objectives) the BA left flank.
~ Thinking it will be safe, the DCD and pod manage to kill two from DA2 while the Speeder kills three Guardians. The bikes turbo boost towards the Guardians.

Eldar
~ The Farseer casts Fortune of the Wraithguard and Guide on the Dragons.
~ The Scorpions continue through their forest while DA1 move onto objective 1 triggering another Ironbark Forest... They are joined by the Wraithguard while the Avatar and the Dragons move towards the DCD.
~ The Guardians knock a HP of the Speeder, while the Dragons use Battle Focus to close the range on the DCD and explode it for First Blood, while the Avatar summons his Wailing Doom to explode the Drop Pod.

VP – E:2, BA:2

fs.php?id=1bc6bff3f2c83fbeb7a9aef7251f34

Turn Two

BA
~ The bikes continue towards the Guardians while the tanks head towards the bulk of the Eldar. FDC disembark and the Speeder holds back.
~ To combined fire, two more Guardians perish and two Wraithguard collapse.

Eldar

~ As the Wraithguard reposition to face the oncoming hoard of DC, DA1, the Avatar, FD and DA2 start moving through the cover towards the action. The Scorpions now break cover and head across no man’s land.
~ The Farseer casts Eldritch Storm at the JDC and manage to kill one before the rest of the army open fire. Five from FDC die to combined fire from the Wraithguard and DA1 while the Scorpions use Battle Focus to be able to pick off one from JDC and the Guardians kill a bike for a bonus VP. Everything else runs to close the gap.

VP – E:3, BA:2

fs.php?id=bfe170250339a18e336390b92b9a21

Turn Three

BA
~ Both DC move closer to the Eldar while the Speeder and Razors move into better firing positions. The remaining bike moves closer to the Guardians.
~ Combined fire results in six dead members of DA1 and another two Guardians die to the Bike.
~ The Bike assaults the remaining Guardians who lose one of their numbers and flee off the board. The FDC charge the Wraithguard and manage to collapse another construct while the JDC are too far away to pull off a charge...

Eldar
~ The Farseer casts Guide on the Dragons and Fortune on the Scorpions.
~ The Scorpions then advance towards JDC along with both DA squads, whole the Avatar, Farseer and Dragons head towards the FDC.
~ Using the Avatar’s Warlord Trait five members of JDC die to combined fire while the Dragons also manage to melt Astorath for Kill the Warlord.
~ The Avatar proceeds to charge the FDC in combat with the Wraithguard. With one Hammer of Wrath attack and six normal attacks the Avatar manages to miss the lot...

VP – E:4, BA:2

fs.php?id=cf686e169579a5f10f0afba81b7259

Turn Four

BA
~ Both Razors reverse away from the main fight while the Attack Bike closes on the Farseer who is out in the open.
~ The tanks and Speeder manage to kill three members of DA1, while the Attack Bike misses it’s target...
~ The final member of the Death Company dies in glorious battle with the Avatar.

Eldar
~ Guide is cast on the Wraithguard and despite taking a wound from Perils of the Warp, the Farseer proceeds to cast Fortune on the Dragons.
~ The Avatar advances towards the Razors with the Wraithguard in tow, while DA2 and the Scorpions head towards objectives 3 and 4 respectively. The Dragons make their way over to the lone bike.
~ The Dragons kill the remaining bike for a further bonus VP while the Avatar summons the Wailing Doom to knock the Plasma Gun off the Plaserback.
~ The Avatar charges but again fluffs his lines by only managing to leave the tank Shaken and with 1HP remaining.

VP – E:5, BA:2

fs.php?id=5820deb817dec4ac9c508d0d3553da

Turn Five

BA
~ The RAS disembark and move towards objective 2 while the Speeder moves towards the nearest 3 point objective. Both tanks cover the RAS from fire.
~ The Speeder turbo boosts onto the 3 objective while the RAS run the final few steps. Both Razor fire is ineffective.

Eldar
~ Fortune is again cast on the Dragons while Guide goes to the Wraithguard
~ The Dragons, Wraithguard and Avatar move towards the Razors while the Scorpions about face and go after the Speeder. Both DA squads are now on objectives.
~ The Wraithguard explode the Plaserback while the Avatar knocks the Heavy Bolter off the Bolterback.
~ In combat the Avatar enters stomp mode and explodes the Bolterback.

VP – E:9, BA:5

fs.php?id=1f88c400a6eec23bb5404bffdf8315

Turn Six

BA
~ The Speeder moves to put a bit more range between itself and the Scorpions, but enough to remain on the objective while the RAS huddle up in cover by their objective
~ The Speeder misses its six shots against the Scorpions while the RAS miss their massed Bolt Pistol and Krak Grenade fire at the encroaching Avatar

Eldar
~ Whilst Guide fails to be cast, the Scorpions again receive Fortune.
~ The Dragons and Scorpions move towards the Speeder while the Wraithguard continue towards the RAS.
~ One RAS dies to the Wraithguard while the Speeder jinks itself out of danger.
~ The Avatar again fails its charge on the RAS but takes no damage from Overwatch, but the Speeder is crippled by the Scorpions in combat for another VP and Linebreaker.

VP – E:11, BA: 0

fs.php?id=1a5b739a44a7b73a7fd7aa0e97fdf6

While there is a turn seven, it is basically the Avatar charging the RAS and slaying them to a man.

Good report. Very easy to follow. Thanks for sharing. Sounds like warlord traits could be game changing,especially for us when we get a new codex eventually. :)
Too bad it was not a happy ending. :)

Hopefully I've have some WIPs up this weekend...

Better late than never I suppose smile.png

1236360_10201630574422410_940622746_n.jp

Forgot to take a picture of the interior before gluing...

1374756_10201630574822420_1471949256_n.j

This is at the "battle ready" phase. Eventually it will get some more thin coats of Blood Red, shading and highlighting. I will also likely darken the metal as it's come out a tad brighter than I would have liked. (Before you ask Taranis, it was finished before RtS was created tongue.png)

544553_10201630575182429_133927038_n.jpg

Interior is still to do, I'll probably go for the bone approach that that Stormraven has. Fortunately it still comes apart smile.png

If you need to add more layers, shading and darken areas then to the fRtS it's legal. :)
I agree with your assessment of the metal. It is a bit pale.

I'm watching you! I'm watching YOU ALL!

(Because I still have a lot to learn....:))

The Quad Gun then fires at the Fragioso causing 1HP of damage.

CSM

First things first, I really do apologies for the "gaming board" and the scenery, but you do what you can! Also for the quality of the photos, but I'll try better with those next time.

Notes on the battle:
~ Forgot to use Corbulo's re-roll again and I could have saved the Stormraven with it. Still, at least it got me to hold up the Chaos Lord for an extra turn but still...
~ Not getting much mileage out of the second spell on my Librarian. I adore Shield of Snaguinius but with MSUs it is difficult to get a suitable second option. Thoughts?
~ Really need to learn how to use my podding Dreadnought better. Probably should have gone for the CSM squad with the Sorcerer in order to stop Puppetmaster...

Blood Angels Vs Eldar 1250

Army Lists
1250 points

Blood Angels
Astorath
Librarian (Lv1) with Shield of Sanguinius and Fear of the Darkness
Death Company with Jump Packs (JDC)
Death Company (FDC) in Razorback with Twin-linked Heavy Bolter (Bolterback)
Death Company Dreadnought (DCD) with Blood Talons and a Drop Pod
Assault Squad (RAS) with Razorback in “Lasplas” configuration (Plaserback)
2 x Attack Bike with Multi Melta

Eldar
Autarch
2 x Dire Avengers (DA1 and DA2)
2 x Wave Serpents (WS1 and WS2)
Guardians with Scatter Laser
Rangers
Wraithknight

Deployment
The Scouring, Hammer and Anvil deployment
The board is arranged as:
1-2-3
4-5-6
And has one line of sight (LoS) blocking terrain piece in the middle of square 1/2/3/4 and a ruin in square 6. There is a hill that runs along the board edge and the edge of square 2 and 3, and, there are also woods in the corners of squares 1 and 4 and on the board edge of squares 3 and 6. Square 1 has a three point objective by its wood, square 2 has a one point objective by the tip of the hill and square three has none. Square 4 has a four point objective by the LoS blocking terrain piece, square five has a two point objective near this LoS blocking piece and finally, square six has a two point objective in its ruin and a three point objective in the middle of the square (see deployment photos). Mysterious objectives are being used, as are mysterious woods.

BA deploy behind the ruin with the two Razorbacks and the JDC just behind them. The Librarian rides with the RAS. The Attack Bikes are hiding behind a small piece of terrain the south of the tanks and the DCD is in reserve with the Drop Pod.

fs.php?id=6bfaa31b8325ba7855e31ab38d46d3

The Eldar deploy a line running north to south of WS1 (containing DA1), WS2 (containing DA2) and the Wraithknight, with the Guardians just in front and a little off centre. The Autarch in placed into reserve and the Rangers infiltrate to a wall beside the LoS blocking terrain.

fs.php?id=4b26bbfff6080b130291f595bee440

Warlord traits offer very little with Astorath getting Inspiring Presence (anything within 12” uses his leadership) and the Autarch getting Falcon’s Swiftness (+1 run). No Blood Angel suffers from the Red Thirst this game and the Night Fighting rules are not in play.
With the roll for Seize the Initiative declined, Blood Angels are to go first.

Turn one

BA
~ The Drop Pod lands in the centre of the board to give some cover and the DCD moves behind the large terrain piece. The Tanks, JDC and the bikes advance on the enemy using the Drop Pod for extra cover
~ Everything opens up on the Rangers and as the smoke clears only three have perished. The bikes Turbo Boost up the hill to get into range.

Eldar
~ The Wraithknight advances to the south of the LoS terrain along with the Guardians. WS1 and WS2 strafe north to get into decent firing positions. This triggers the one point objective but it is nothing of note.
~ Shield of Sanguinius works. Both Wave Serpents open up on the tanks and do no damage. Only the Wraithknight can do something of note this turn and takes a wound off the lead Attack Bike.

BA: 0-0 :Eldar

fs.php?id=45a5ddadc7dd4ffd6e013e123aef27

Turn Two

BA
~ The DCD advances on the Guardians while the tanks, JDC and the bikes head towards the Pod.
~ The Plaserback shoots WS1 but causes no damage while the rest of the army tries again to remove the Rangers who, after having Gone to Ground, lose only one of their number.
~ The DCD fails its charge on the Guardians by 1”.

[/b]Eldar[/b]
~ No Autarch this turn. The Wraithknight again advances while the Guardians retreat toward their board edge and away from the encroaching DCD. Again WS1 strafes while WS2 advances on the BA armour.
~ Shield of Sanguinius again works and the Guardians move onto their board edge. Both Attack Bikes die to the fire of WS1 for 2 VP (First Blood, Fast Attack) while WS2 explodes the Plaserback causing one fatality to the JDC and one to the RAS passengers. Their pinning test it passed. The Wraithknight then opens up on the RAS killing them all and wounding the Librarian once.

BA: 0-2 :Eldar

fs.php?id=0de2164cfc4fc5b0dbeaeb490bb773

Turn Three

BA
~ The DCD moves around the LoS terrain towards the Rangers and Eldar tanks while the JDC also advance towards them. The Librarian gets into cover. The Bolterback also advances.
~ The Rangers again Go to Ground and only lose one of their number. The DCD pops smoke and the Bolterback kills three Guardians who turn tail and flee off the board.
~ The DCD again fails its charge, this time of the Rangers but the JDC manage and annihilate them.

Eldar
~ The Autarch deepstrikes in behind the Librarian. DA2 disembark from WS2 into cover. DA1 disembark from WS1 into a nearby wood which turns out to be a Ironbark Forest (3+ cover save). The Wraithknight moves close to the two point objective which is booby trapped.
~ Shield of Sanguinius is successfully cast. Two HPs are removed from the Bolterback and it is Shaken for the next turn. DA2 kill three from JDC and WS2 finishes the job, while the Wraithknight knocks a HP off the DCD. The Autarch misses.
~ The Autarch moves away 9” while the Wraithknight charges the DCD. The impact knocks off another HP before it is wrecked with regular attacks.

BA: 0-2: Eldar

fs.php?id=227fe30862d1c788848ae3ccf8ea57

Turn Four

BA
~ Everything remaining again advances (Linebreaker is active) while Astorath moves towards the Autarch.
~ Astorath knocks a wound off the Autarch and combined bolt fire kills two from DA1. The Librarian then casts Fear of the Darkness causing them to flee 9” towards their board edge.
~ Astorath charges the Autarch and defeats him to claim a secondary objective (Slay the Warlord).

Eldar
~ DA1 fail to regroup and flee from the battlefield. The Wraithknight moves slightly away from Astorath to get a better firing position.
~ Shield of Sanguinius again works but the Wraithknight scores a wound on Asotrath. The Bolterback is wrecked by WS1 and the Librarian Goes to Ground.
~ The Wraithknight charges Asotrath and squishes him for Slay the Warlord.

BA: 2-3 :Eldar

fs.php?id=36f8cd566cc0ad7f874afeac6f3a3a

Turn Five

BA
~ With only the FDC and a Drop Pod remaining, and seeing that the Eldar can easily claim any objective, the Blood Angels concede the game.

One of my next purchases will be an Imperial Knight (what? I want to treat myself), so I've created an 1850 Death Company list in order to make use of it.

Comments welcomed smile.png

(Yes, I do hope some ETL pics will appear soon, but I've really had no time and I'm going on holiday soon...)

Haven't seen those rules yet, but I hear he is good. Thanks for the interest!

Better late than never...

I Jolemai answer the call of E TENEBRAE LUX and vow to complete one unit of Sternguard Veterans from Codex Blood Angels of total value 235 points on or before August 1st. Success will bring eternal glory to the Blood Angels fora and failure will doom me to bear the Badge of Shame until the vow is completed.

Blood Angels Vs Eldar – 2000 points

Army Lists

Blood Angels

2000 Light Mech/Hybrid list

 

Eldar

Spoiler


Deployment
Spoils of War
The map is as per the mission. The board is set up as:
123
456
Where there is a hill on the table edges of board 2 & 5, and a hill on the table edges that split board 1 & 4 and 3 & 6. Hills 1&4 and 3&6 have an Imperial Bastion, whilst there is a Shyshield landing pad in the centre of the board. All three are deactivated. To reach the battlements of the Bastion, one must be in range of the access point, to get on top of the Shyshield, one must approach the legs. There is a broken barricade around the Shyshield and in the remaining spaces, there are some rocks and/or foliage.

Objective 1 is on the battlements of Bastion 1-4, Objective 2 is in the centre of board 5, Objective 3 is on top of the Shyshield and 12” away from Objective 2, Objective 4 is in the centre of board 3, Objective 5 is in the rocks that reside in board 6, while Objective 6 is in the rocks that reside in board 1. These are mysterious objectives.

Mephiston rolls on Biomancy gaining Warp Speed, Enfeeble, Hemorrhage, Smite (and Force)
FLD rolls on Telepathy gaining Hallucinogen, Mental Fortitude, Psychic Shriek (and Force)
Farseer rolls Executioner, Fortune, Guide and Death Mission
Warlocks both roll Enhance/Drain and Conceal/Reveal

Mephiston’s Warlord Trait is Tenacity (Feel No Pain)
The Farseer’s Warlord Trait is Ambush of Blades (Re-roll to wound once per game)

Eldar deploy first along board edge 123 in the following manner from 1-3:
Guardians -> Avatar -> WL1 -> WL2 -> Wave1 -> Wave2-> WK. The Farseer and Warlocks are behind the WLs, whilst the Cimson Hunter and the Warp Spiders are held in reserve. Mysterious objective 6 is discovered by the Guardians to be nothing of note.

The Blood Angels castle up opposite the Avatar as so:
Bolterback -> Land Raider ->Plaserback -> Predator
Whirlwind -> Damocles
Corbulo rides with the Death Company. Mephiston and the FLD are placed inside the Stormraven and are held in reserve, along with the Land Speeder and both Attack Bikes. The Scouts infiltrate out of sight behind Bastion 1-4. The Plaserback discovered mysterious objective 2 to be nothing of note. No Blood Angels fall to the Red Thirst and Eldar have the first turn.

Something new for me is to do a unit by unit analysis. I've seen others do it and thought I'd have a go myself to help me get a better understanding of my units and what I'm doing wrong.

Mephiston

Powers weren't the best but when they clicked, it was devastating. Very slow without Wings of Sanguinius and I should have probably sent him away from the objective after he killed the Wraithknight. Force is going to be huge for Mephiston this side of our new codex imo.

Damocles Command Rhino

Helped with two of the reserve rolls but missing with the Orbital Bombardment was a disappointment. My opponent hates Rhinos too so that's a bonus at least.

Corbulo

Forgot Far Seeing Eye, used him badly, probably should have dropped him for a Chaplain/Reclusiarch. Back to BA school for me!

Furioso Librarian Dreadnought

A little underwhelming but I see potential with him as not only a body guard for Mephiston, but a better mana battery than a Lv2 Librarian. Will likely use the Mep/Rave/FLD combo again whenever I take Mephiston.

Assault Squad with Flamer (RASf) with Razorback in “lasplas” configuration (Plaserback)

Standard unit for me these days. Can't hit a barn door with Lascannons though. The RAS outdid themselves with their rush of the Seer Council :)

Assault Squad with Melta gun (RASm) in Razorback with twin-linked Heavy Bolters (Bolterback)

Another standard unit that sadly didn't do anything of note.

Death Company with a Land Raider

Too aggressive? Wrong configuration? Not enough buffs? Either way, I don't appear to be using them very well lately. As for the Land Raider, that was probably it's best performance for a while. Was considering making it a Crusader, but I think I did the right thing leaving it as a Phobos.

Scout Squad

Grabbed two objectives but other than that they did little. Bad/rusty generalship again...

2 x Attack Bike “squadron” with Multimelta

Threw them away cheaply perhaps? As for Jink, it may keep them alive but it really neuters them :/

Land Speeder “squadron” with dual Heavy Bolters

Another unit I like and see potential with, but I think it may need to appear in numbers. See above for Jink in the 7th edition.

Predator Destructor in “autolas” configuration

Standard configuration for me, notably eradicated early on for its reputation. Put too much trust in cover to keep it alive, but I wanted to try and take out the shield-less Wave Serpent...

Stormraven Gunship

It feels so naked without its Hurricane Bolters once the missiles are gone! Was also disappointed with it's performance as it didn't do much.

Whirlwind

One round of firing before being removed, did it's job.

 

Summary

I'm a little rusty at the game, but I feel I used some units badly. Probably should have started with the Attack Bikes and Land Speeder on the field, if only for target saturation. Was a little hesitant on the first turn about where to go which didn't help. Enjoyed the new tactical objectives and the reintroduction of the psychic phase, but this will take some getting used to. To be honest, I was also a little dejected around turn two even though I managed to claw it back somewhat. Just one of those things I guess.

Nice battle report, the details really paint a picture of the unfolding battle.

Pesky farseer! Always worth a go though, as a hit there would have eased things for you. You did well to stick in and come back from those punishing first two turns. I think it's no coincidence that mephiston is not mentioned until turn 3. Maybe you were unlucky with the death company charge on the avatar.

My two pence worth - try putting corbs with mephiston and have them jump in the land raider. If you get a turn two charge with them, you'll soon have your oppo dancing to your tune. Not sure where this would leave your death company but a tooled-up DC and mephiston fulfill the same roles so maybe you could ditch them and use the points to duplicate predator or bikes as these units are best fielded in pairs IMHO.

On psychic powers, it's encouraging to note that even without iron arm the other powers combine to give you similar success i.e. Enfeeble and force vs wraithknight.

Think Donald Sutherland sitting atop a Land Raider Redeemer, speakers blaring out 'Singing in the rain' to the accompaniment of falling drop pods...

 

The difference between us and the Dark Angels? We defeated our demons.

Aye, that part is encouraging. However, Force is really necessary! Guess I should use two dice next time...

Psychic shriek is situational, but a very good option for when you don't get Invisibility.

 

As for the "Mephistar" don't get me wrong, I am up for trying it one day and could easily work it into that list. I do wonder though, what would I use as a mana battery for Mephiston? Perhaps an Inquisitor and a small henchman warband with a psyker?

Having just used a small Inquisitor warband today I cannot recommend them highly enough. Xenos Inquisitor with rad grenades (-1 to target toughness turn you charge), a few Death Cult Assassins for fun I5, WS5 power weapons and Priest for 4+ invul and reroll armour saves in close combat. Great fun on their own to target weakened units end game. And if you manage to pull off a combined charge with an ASM/Death Company squad those rad grenades make for a very VERY fun time. 

 

My two cents :)

Today I have a selection of WIPs for your perusal.

Corbulo, Death Company, Scout:

gallery_62972_9848_41124.jpg

The Heavy Bolter armed Scout is about 95% complete. He just needs his face finishing, his base tidying up and a tiny amount of additional highlight added. The other two are at about 75% as they still require highlights and fine detail.

Death Company Imperial Knight:

gallery_62972_9848_68487.jpg

Yes you read that right. My freelance Imperial Knight Paladin will be in Death Company colours (apparently, the pilot likes to paint his machine to match the force he's serving).

As it turns out, he doesn't mind having his nudes shared on the internet...
