Road to Glory Campaign

Postby Lonewolf on Wed Sep 23, 2009 12:26 pm

Been reading the 5th edition codex and noticed this campaign in the back (page 250)
my friend and i have been looking for a campaign to do so we thought we'd give it a shot.

for those who havent seen it (give it a read)
it consists of 5 missions linked together, starting small and building upto the big finale.
were playing the 5 missions in order with 500pts to start and increasing the points by 500 for each mission to end the final one at 2500pts (might up it to 3000 if we have time for an apaocalypse game)

anyway we played the first 2 missions this sunday.
Battle 1 (spoils of war) Seize ground - dawn of war.
500pts
my list-
Deamon prince, MOK + wings
4 bezerkers + 1 skull champ with power weapon, rhino with combi-melta
4 bezerkers + 1 skull champ with power weapon, rhino with combi-melta

completely annihilated him in 4 turns and claimed 2 of the 5 objectives with the loss of 2 bezerkers.

battle 2 (Force supremecy) Capture and control - dawn of war
my list-
deamon prince, mok + wings
7 bezerkers with personal icon + 1 skull champ with power weapon, rhino
7 bezerkers with personal icon + 1 skull champ with power weapon, rhino
8 lesser deamons
1 defiler
1 predator, autocannon, heavy bolter sponsons, havoc launcher

game ended on turn 5 with me claiming both objectives.
lesser deamons on one objective and a rhino full of zerks on the other.
even managed to tie up his nasty lightning claw armed termies with the defiler that they couldnt hurt :lol:

so all in all a great start to the campaign resulting in me being the Attacker for the rest of the missions (as it should be violent5 )
next week we play mission 3 - Breakthrough (Seize Ground - Pitched Battle)......
We are the Hounds of War, Angron's chosen, We shall Devour your World and bathe in the Blood of your Dead!

well battle 3 didnt go so well.
my opponent stole the initiative and the resultant first turn of his shooting took a very heavy toll on my force.
at the end of turn 7! i contested one objective and he just claimed mine after it going tot the seventh turn and managed to run off my defending squad.

anyway tonight is game 4!
2000pts capture and control.
tonight i'm gonna try a "hit or miss" asaault army i call The deepstrike list from hell

So how did it go?
A good leader inspires by example but if that fails brutal violence works just as well.

well i won :)
Pretty muh anihilated his line by dropping in amongst hom, negating the carefully placed minefields he had placed.
My 2 units of csm did a great job of holding my objective
Man of the match went to my greater deamon as he ran rampant around his backline chewing his way through units
