I only have 10 but if you had more I would reccomend bulking up. However no unit died during the game, a squad was reduced to a single 1 wound guardian but that was it

I am playing in the gold bracket finals this week versus dark eldar and am in the top division of another local league with a game versus the person who came in second over at SoCal Open versus his Nidz. Expecting some good things from my Golden Men.

Played a fun game tonight, wanted to try out my dreadnought talon.

Custodes
Shield cap axe
Bike cap 3++
Bike cap 3++

3x3 custodians 1 shield in each
Vexilla magnifica
Achillus
Exemplar with plasma ejectors
Telemon with twin caestus

The Orks
New Warboss on trike thingy
Warboss
Big Mek KFF
Weirdboy

5 x 10 boys pistols and choppas knob with claw
5 trucks
3 deffkoptas with rockets and bomb
2 dakka jets
5 bikes

Morkanaut

Even though he didn't have a sea of boys I was still a little worried, mission was race to victory and he had a lot of mobility and I had little. He seized on me and went first. He played very cautiously and kept everyone in their trucks, didn't really bring anyone close to me, took out one guy with a dakka jet, took one other wound I think, not much doing.

Custodes turn 1 and I moved forward a bit, took a couple of objectives and did some pop shots. Killed 1 deffkopta, got in position to do 2 defends at the end of his turn.

Orks 1 - 0 custodes

Turn 2 he backed some stuff off but stayed in his transports, moved one of the trucks forward a bit and the bikes swung round the side where my achillus is. Dakka jets and bikes and trucks all fire at my infantry and cut another one down and take a couple of wounds off another squad. No charges. Morkanaut is in reserve and stays there another turn

Custodes turn 2, scored my 2 defends and sent the achillus out to take down the nearest truck, bike captain and Examplar move out to target one of the flyers. Everything else moves forward. Some minor damage in shooting, bike captain charges the flyer, other bike captain charges the remaining deffkopta, achillus charges the truck, all three are successful.

Orks 2 - 5 Custodes

Turn 3, he gets everyone out and decides its krumpin time, 50 boys move and advance right up to my lines, trucks move up to take overwatch where they can, Warboss on bike comes up to take on the achillus and the bikes surround him, morkanaut comes in and has an 11" charge into my telemon, shooting is negligible. I use tangle foot on the morkanaut but roll a 1, so with his +1 for evil sunz he still has an 11, I didnt CP re roll it as I needed all the CP I had left as I was planning a stooping dive. So everything charges and everything makes it in, he mobbed up 2 of the 10 man squads but they lost 6 to my exemplar plasma flamer on overwatch and a few more to some other overwatch. His Warboss is in on my warlord and vexilla, one squad is on one of my 3 man guard squads, Achillus is surrounded by wartrike boss, 17 boys and 5 bikes. Morkanaut goes first, goes with the big swings and gets 4 wounds through, I made 2 4++ and CP re rolled a third and he rolled 2 damage. Oh and he used the ramming speed strat and did 3 mortals to Tel but I rolled a triple 6 and ignored them all. So now I play my Ace, the Achillus is on 3 wounds left and on am objective, so I use the strat to interrupt for 1 CP and I use counter strike to interrupt with my warlord, Achillus gets 3 wounds through and it's enough to kill the Warboss on trike thing, my captain then killed the Warboss too. He then hit me with everything and only manage to kill 1 guy who was already on 1 wound and took my exemplar down to 1 and he did manage to kill the Achillus, who then exploded, Big Tel hit back and did 12 to the morkanaut, when all was said and done 33 boys, Warboss and Warboss trike are dead.

In my turn I finished off 2 trucks, the remaining boys, and Big Tel dealt with the morkanaut, he called it there was I was way up on points and he didn't have anything left that can hurt me.

My guys held firm, Big Tel didn't even get to fire his plasma ejectors but he took care of the morka without complaint. I think he needed more attacks or more AP or both, but today it wasn't enough to break the Golden Heroes.

Tanglefoot doesn’t work on units like the Morkanaut.

The Orks have historically bounced off of my Custodes. I thought from what I’ve seen perhaps it wouomd be different post codex.

From your game it seemed like he might have the upper hand if he can shoot a little longer but it never seemed to happen.

Sounds like a fun game!

I can't check it right know but I'm pretty sure the only exception is units with fly, unless there's been an FAQ I've missed?

They are the forge world contemptor dreadnoughts that came out with Beta rules. Contemptor Achillus is the spear one, there isn't a model for the Exemplar but I used a sword and shield one as its fits quite nicely.

Doesn’t it only apply to infantry units? Don’t have the codex with me right now.

It applies to anything except units that have the FLY keyword. I checked, because I used it on a Knight Gallant the other week and was asked the same thing.

It has to originate from Infantry units, is likely the source of confusion.

About tanglefoot: there is a "or". substract from Movment OR charge. Is it an "exclusive" "or"? I mean, if he reduce the D6 from movment and decide to charge: we don't reduce the charge either?

It's worded like this because you can use it in the movement or the charge phase, or both, but given its a new phase you can use the stratagem again
