Firmus Mutare Campaign, game ten. Frank was going after one of
the higher point territories. We rolled a Bunker Assault mission.
Naming convention: The food that have faced Hive Fleet Phage
have named the Hive Tyrants that continue to plague them. The
one that trudges forward implacably with an escort of Tyrant Guard
they call "Thunder." The swift winged beast that races
across the battlefield and shatters bodies and vehicles alike
has been dubbed "Lightning." They have also named the
Carnifex engine of destruction, "Mjolnir".
I ran my army straight at him and much carnage ensued.
My thanks to Frank for a fun game. We talked about how the result
might have been different and came to the conclusion that Frank
was not aggressive enough with his guys right away. He had the
ability to dish out some serious carnage, but gave me too many
opportunities to choose the nature and timing of the close combat.
I personally think that the Blood Claws might be key to kicking
my army's chitninous butt. Also, there were a lot of points invested
in special gear that could have been more bodies. I have no great
ideas, but I'll try to find out if anyone has good ideas on how
Space Wolves can beat Tyranids.
