Inspired by my game last night, I want to hear about your troops who, in true Dark Angel's style, overcame the odds and win minor (or major) victories on the battlefield.
Yesterday, Azrael deployed down with Ravenwing support after being refused access to a excavation site with possible Dark Angel relics. The problem? The Imperial guard. Conscripts, Leman Russes and Basilisks faced off against the black knights, hellblasters and scouts with Sammael and Azrael guiding them. Despite all the well established heroes taking to the ground one set of troops stood out as the true heroes. A squad of combat knives scouts who infiltrated deep into no mans land and managed to charge a group of sentinels first turn. They, with their knives, spent the whose battle toe to toe with them and ended up killing two of the three and seriously wounding the third whilst surviving themselves. They must have managed to slide the knives between the sheets of armour and get access to the electrical innards of the walkers to take them down. Truly heroic. This allowed the right flank to sweep around with the black knights, taking out their armour and securing victory for the Unforgiven.
They have earned a full paint job for sure.
