2000pts Imperial Guard vs. Blood Angels

Imperial Guard vs. Blood Angels

Had a fun throw-down with a good friend… I played my as yet unfinished Imperial Guard army, he played my Blood Angels army.

  • The mission was ‘Crusade’ (objectives) and I eeked out a victory by one point.
  • He achieved first blood and line breaker for 2 points
  • I held a single uncontested objective for 3 points, and he held none.
  • Although now that I think about it he could have simply moved Dante to his backfied objective (he rolled ‘immovable object’ on the personal warlord traits table and was thus a scoring unit) and he would have won by two points.
  • So… ‘technically’ I won but ‘really’ he won. :)

I’m still learning the rules so there was lots of looking things up… battle too probably 4-5 hours total. I think we hit 90% of the rules though (still haven’t done anything Psychic and no monstrous creatures, but covered pretty much everything else).

Great fun!
