So, this is my first post on Bolter & Chainsword.

 

I’ve been a long time lurker, but finally thought I’d share what I’ve been up to. I’ll use this thread as a log for my Ultramarine forces, which is my primary collection.

 

I’ve been interested in the hobby ever since I was a kid, and collected various things since then, but I’ve only really been playing for the last couple of years.

 

I have a mate locally who also plays, so I manage to get the odd game in each month. We don’t use mega competitive armies, just try various units and combos trying to keep it fluffy, although we are looking in to some local tournaments, and i'm considering going to a birng and battle evening at my local Warhammer store in the near future.

 

We managed to play a couple of games today, and i managed to make some notes, so I thought I’d try and make a little bat rep which I’ll post in a moment which I hope you'll enjoy.

 

Any feedback on list, style of the report, etc is welcome.

 

I'll try and get my pictures onto the laptop and add them to the next post if possible.

Firstly, the lists. Since the supplement dropped, I haven’t used Guilliman, so I wanted to do a list that fitted him in. I also wanted to try a few different combos on characters, like Cassius’ litanies etc.

 

I took Guilliman as my warlord for the extra CP. My relic I gave the Primaris Chaplain the new Crozius, because I wanted to run him as a bit of a melee distraction, and I gave the Techmarine Seal of Oath.

 

For the Aeldari, my mate used a couple of the new craftworld attributes from PA1; Wrath of the Dead giving him re-roll 1s on his Wraith constructs, and Warding Runes for a 5+ vs MW. His Warlord took Seer of the Shifting Vector for a free re-roll per turn.

Terrain - The board was covered with ruined buildings, one in each quarter, with various extras like shipping container and broken walls dotted around. There was a main thoroughfare running down the centre of the board, from my deployment zone to my opponents. The objectives were placed fairy equally, 3 & 6 nearest to my deployment zone, 1 & 4 half way up the board either side of the central road, and 2 & 5 in similar positions near my opponents deployment zone.

 

We were playing the Tactical Gambit – Maelstrom mission and rolled Hammer and Anvil for deployment.

 

Deployment - I deployed my Venerable on the far right of my deployment zone, in cover for the most part, with a good line of sight diagonally across the board to the Wraithknight. The Tacticals were closer to the centre on the right, sitting on Objective 3. In the centre of my deployment zone, on the road, was both the Ironclad and Redemptor, along with the Techmarine, Guilliman, Tigurius and the Victrix Guard. To the left of these was Cassius, along with the Stalker squad. The Whirlwind hid out of sight behind a large building, with the Auto bolt rifle squad further left with the Primaris Chaplain, ready to run round the wall and jump on some objective.

My Infiltrators deployed on objective 4, halfway up the board, while the Invictor and Phobos Lib took similar positions on the right flank.

 

The Aeldari had the Wraithknight on my left flank, along with the 2 squads of Dire Avengers (one purple furthest left and one blue closer to the centre) and a Farseer who hid behind the building there. The two Wraithlords and the Wraithseer were quite central, while the second Farseer and the Axe Wraiths were on the right flank along with the Wave Serpent which held the sword Wraiths. The D-scythe Wraiths were in Webway strike. The Rangers deployed in cover about 9” in front of the Wave Serpent.

The Ultramarines got 1st turn and the Aeldari Failed to seize.

Thanks guys!

 

I've edited the bat rep to add the few pics I got. Now I've got the hang of the forum, I'll try and take some more for future battles.
