My opponent was running dark angels, an imperial knights detachment, and a space wolves detachment. I won't list all his troops but his knights detachment was an imperial knight paladin...and his 2k army still looked twice the size of mine.
The death company killed..
lets start with the dread..he had blood talons and started out by chewing through 10 grey hunters. Then he took out 3 thunderwolf cavalry. By this point he had 1 hull point left but still managed to immobilize a predator tank before finally being downed.
Next we'll go with the 5 DC that arrived with the dread.
They killed Murderfang, the space wolf dreadnought. A 5 man sniper squad, and finally 3 thunderwolf cavalry with some named character that was pretty tough on one. Then fell to shots from the knight.
Finally the 4 DC and Lemartes.
They lost 2 members to interceptor shots from the knight before they touched down on a bridge. They shot down 4 snipers from the bridge and then charged head first into a Contemptor Dreadnought. They took it down unscathed. During this same turn things were looking a bit rough as the knight had just wiped out my 10 tacticals with blast templates, finished off the DC dread, and finally charged Mefiston. Mefiston was able to inflict 2 wounds on the knight but took many more and was smashed to bits. The knight was down to 4 hull points.
Lemartes and the 2 DC were in the depths of the black rage and decided it was their time to die. They charged the monsterous knight paladin and hit it so hard that they removed all its hull points and the knight exploded..taking lemartes and the death company with it on its way out.
The game looked hopeless early on..looking across the field at an army similar in size but with a monsterous knight. Then realizing he still had a bunch of units in reserve. But the death company made all the difference. None survived, as it's meant to be. But in the end I won the game. Defeating an army that was undefeated up to that point in our little gaming community.
