We played sealed orders on frontline assault map
Custodes went duration deployed everything in a bubble and advanced and moved up to the central terrain piece, only my warlord was out to the right and he advanced into an objective to start a defend.
Took 4 wounds from the Valkyrie and scored no points.
Scions turn 1, Valkyrie flew forward and dropped off the 3 bullgryns for a move and charge into one of my bike squads and the knight moved up. Knight killed 2 bikes in the shooting phase. Bullgryns managed to take 2 wounds off a bike before they were mercilessly dispatched.
Custodes turn 2 and I moved a squad and the last biker towards the knight and the captain on foot, then deepstriked the squad I put in teleport and the termie with vexilla imperius. After charges I had a 4 man squad, the bike and the captain in combat with the knight, the squad were the only ones in range of the +1 attack bubble. I used piercing strike to add 1 to my wound rolls on the spears and when that squad was done the knight had 6 wounds left. Between the bike and the captain I finished it off and it blew up doing some wounds all round and 6 to the squad. I also killed the Valkyrie in combat with the other squad.
The game went on for 6 turns but ended 27 points to 13 in favour of the Custodes.
Turns out we can kill knights. 😁
