Rematch with the Night Lord player this weekend. 50PL so I switched Intercessors for Infiltrators andadded two units of Aggressors with Boltstorm Gauntlets (Battle Honour +1 WS). He added a unit of Terminators, a Sorcerer and a couple units of Raptors(?) one with Lightning Claws (omg) and another with plasma pistols and chainswords.
He just missed a first turn charge with a Maulerfiend and the Lord Discordant. That meant they were in range of the Aggressors and Indomitus Lt. charge T1. Maulerfiend dies, Lord Discordant heroically intervenes. I lose half of the six Aggressors and my Lieutenant to the counterstrike when next turn the two Chaos Marine squads wade into the fight. I spend CP for Transhuman T1 and T2 along with the one that helps D1 weapons turn 3+ into 2+. Aggressors kill the Lord Discordant on his T2.
Sadly the game didn't go beyond T2 or I think I might have gotten the win with some patient play. Instead we called it a draw and I hope to play him again in a week or two.
Had a skirmish 25 PL with a Word Bearer also. This was a double XP weekend so spent more time farming XP than I cared about wins. It's week one of a 12 week campaign. All my units have one Battle Honour. Bolt Rifle Intercessors BS2. Aggressors WS2, Eliminators with ObSec and can shoot and perform actions (yeah baby) Indomitus Lt. and Phobos Librarian have +1 A, +1 Ld (Terminator Honours). The Lt. is getting the Adamantium Cuirass (+1W, +1T) and the Librarian has +1 cast, +1 deny each turn and is getting promoted to Chief Librarian.
To all my Brothers. If you play Crusade, do NOT, use Requisition Points when creating a Character you plan on giving Chapter Command upgrade to during the Crusade. He will not be able to purchase the Warlord Trait and Relic associated with that Chapter Command upgrade. He can have Crusade abilities and relics, just not any you would usually purchase from your codex/supplement.
Which is why my Phobos Librarian will be "stuck" with Lord of Deceit and the Indomitus Armor instead of having Psychic Mastery and the Neural Shroud. Which honestly isn't all that bad because homie is rocking Spectral Blade and Umbral Form to go along with Shadowstep. That +1 Ld from Terminator Honours gives him a Ld10. Which means his Spectral Blade is S10 AP -4. Just need to go fishing to improve his WS and add another Attack. The kid can chop some wood right there with the Indomitus Lt.
I chose a Lt. because as a Successor with Bolter Fusillades, rerolling 1s is a thing already. Rerolling to wound rolls just aren't that common and the Lt's ability just meshes well with the super doctrine on these characters.
