3k Imperial Fists vassal playtest vs Jimmy. We played this over 3? sessions across a few weeks.

edit: disregard pretty much all of this. Just realised I didn't have scouts in the army list I took, but deployed them on table (mix up between earlier list i suppose, although following is what's saved in the vassal army list file). So that's a win by default to jimmy and a wasted playtest due to me :{[]

Deployment
Quick note, vassal does not have mine fields. Those runs of red/blue mini rulers are the mine fields. Unfortunately, after deploying them i forgot that they represented minefields and promptly garrisoned my thunderfires on top of their own mines. Presumably I wouldn't have done this on a real table with real minis, but there we go. Didn't have any effect on the game, as IF inf get to re-roll on friendly mines.
Image

Orks put two objectives within 30 of each other and sit the great gargant across from the. IF place objectives on the right and far right. Dev formations and thunderfires garrison up, no ork garrisons.

Centurions deployed mounted up (next to fellblade) plan was to use them to counter assault whatever hit the bunkers in t2. Orks deployed inside their battleforts.

Thoughts:

Centurions – not a great tests for these guys, they spent two turns trundling about mounted up then pasted a weak formation t3. Plan to use them as counter assault in middle didnt work out as it wasn't worth doing, shooting from IFs in middle broke everything apart from the gargant. I'd have preferred terminators, but don't have much to say based on above report.

Jimmy was wondering about thunderfire movement, would mounted be appropriate?

As you can probably tell from my deployment i'd never set up bunkers and mines before. Looking back i'd have moved one set of bunkers so it could contest both objectives, then moved the other set and mines further north from the objectives. Alternatively the bunkers would have been tucked back to use the LOS block from hills and trees more defensively.

Suicide predators start of t2 was a waste, I was fixated on killing the mounted up battlefort, but there were less wasteful was of doing that …

A fun game concentrated around a big t2 middle of table pile-up, neither of us had used or played against a great gargant before.

thanks for the report Apoc :), while the assault centurions didn't get to tackle many big nasty targets, they survived till turn 3 unscathed where they were in a position to crush the weak resistance of the big guns and win the game for you....

yeah that's very true, thought my feeling was teleporting terminators would have got the job done for 50 points less. Although had turn 2 gone differently the centurions would have been more use , all depends I suppose.

as they headed out alone I tend to agree, I see centurions leading a forward push, lending supporting fire to nearby engagements and providing an anchor point for the battle line

edited first post, i'm a complete idiot and took an illegal list without noticing. Result is win by default to jimmy and my apologies.


Only just noticed scrolling back through the report. Can only assume I still had a draft list in my mind at deployment, but then the list used here is what I pasted into the vassal game for use, so no real excuse!
