The Warstore Weekend Finale: Mechanicon Day 2
Game 5- This time I took on a well-painted Draigo-wing. This guy got creative and had no reservations about calling his army cheesey. Every knight had a cheese name. The whole army was Draigo, a librarian, 2 squads of Paladins and a vindicare. The mission was kill points basically. Since his whole army was 5 kill points, I had some work to do. I castled up near the middle of my side while he set everything on my right in the corner. He kept Draigo's unit together and split the other one to deep strike (6 kill points now). I infiltrated the stealth suits as far forward as possible. I got first turn and opened up with the stealths, dropping the vindicare and earning first blood for my trouble. Draigo's squad ate basically everything else I had to throw at it. I might have killed one Paladin. That's basically how the game went from there. His combat-squadded units came in and I eventually managed to take them out. I had one turn where I killed the closest model and the next one was Draigo. He ate so many wounds, and I managed to put some hurt on him, but the game ended with him on his last wound. I killed 3 units, took linebreaker and first blood but he did enough damage to me to more then even the score.
This was a fun event. All my games were close and just a blast. The mandatory painting helped because having 2 painted armies adds to the game for me. I definitely plan on coming back next year...and hopefully winning a game.
