Sisters of Battle Attack Space Marines again
After playing one game I went for a second on the last 40k League gameday. We are playing 750 points and I was matched up with Landon H and his Space Marines. I have already played Landon once in the 500 point round here . I would be the attacker and Landon chose the -1 move attacker/+1 move defender and the -1 leadership defender/ +1 leadership attacker advantages. The primary objective was obliteration and the secondary was three 25mm objectives. We deployed using spear head and I took the first turn.
At the end of turn five we roll and the game ends. The rolling cover rhino lives! Neither of us are obliterated and we both have an objective so the game becomes a Draw.
With the rule changes in Sixth edition the rolling cover rhino taking a half dozen plus glances is over but I would like to think I would have made an invulnerable save or two and kept it on the board. I think if we would have played another turn the Exorcist may have had a chance to finish off the Tactical squad and may have given me a minor win but we will never know.
I enjoyed the game but I think Landon was frustrated with some of his rolling. He even went and switched out his dice for his better rolling ones but the game still ended in a draw. This was a much better game than our 500 point game but the major problem with that game was the league difficult terrain advantage that has now been toned down a great deal.
