A quick report of my first battle of 7th and the first in an escalation VASSAL league im in.
We got purge the alien and vanguard, he was Tau and brought this list;
2x 12 firewarrios w/shas'sui
double missile broadside
CCS w/ 2 GL
IP, 2 GL in PCS, flamer in each IS
Vets, carapce, 2 melta and a taurox
LR eradicator w/ HF
First turn, he killed 3 of the CCS, blew up the taurox and killed 2 vets.
I took out half a squad of firewarriors with a good Eradicator shot, and ordered Vets to "Bring it Down" on Shadowsun, which I did as she had jumped within 6" of 2 meltas and 7 rapid firing lasguns - which killed her!!!! he was upset and I felt very lucky.
I had rolled the extra command trait, so I also orderd FRF,SRF on the combined guard infantry squad to kill the pathfinder squad (who were infiltrated very near my table half)
Second turn, he fires the broadside at the remaining CCS, missing with everything. His firewarriors move into a ruin in the centre.
I sweep around with the infantry blob, FRF,SRF it and kill them all (very lucky I felt). Move the vets forward and kill teh braodside with a eradicator shell - he had thought he got cover saves hehehe.
He condeded at this point with only a squad of firewarriors in the building in the centre left.
Solid victory. I feel I got very lucky but also took advantage of the few mistakes he had made.
Hope to repeat this, next round gets another 250 pts, id like to add a Demolisher and either
a 2nd CCS for more orders and redundancy w/HF to back up teh IP
a vet squad with carapce and mortar for objective sitting
OR primaris psyker and priest for the IP
What do you think woudl mesh best with the list and any tips for strategy?
