Had a 2k pt game against BA today. I would like to use it for the campaign.
I do not have photos, but there should be a YouTube video report posted in the next day or two that I will provide a link to. My gaming group has a YouTube channel called 2 Smoking Bolters.
2 big meks with PK, KFF, cybork
4 squads of 30 boyz with nob, PK, EA.
7 warbikers, nob, PK.
3 squads of 3 kans with rokkits.
His Blood Angels:
1 Librarian Furioso
3 flamestorm cannon baal predators
4X 5 man assault squads in razorbacks with assault cannons, sgt with power weapon
2 baal pred with lascannons
We roll for game type and its seize ground with 4 objectives. For deployment we roll spearhead.
I lose the roll off for first turn.
My opponent deploys a massive tank formation and my worries begin, how am I going to kill that many tanks with an ork army?
I deploy my entire army in my tiny little corner, placing lootas in terrain and kans in the front. I place my meks to ensure good coverage from the KFF. The warbikers are hiding behind a bastion near middle of the table.
He scouts his flamestorm cannons 18" towards a boyz squad.
I fail to seize initiative. He moves his flamestorm preds into position, moves his tank formation, advances his libby dread, and swings out his vindi towards my flank. He proceeds to murder 17 of 30 boyz with his flamestorm cannons and fails to damage the kans with them. He fires his assault cannons from two razorbacks reducing my boyz mob to 9 and a mek so i am no longer fearless, however i pass the ld check. he fires his remaining tanks and razorbacks at my kans and manages to kill one.
I advance my remaining boyz towards the flamestorm preds, advance two boyz mobs forward, advance the other kans forward, and swing a boyz mob upwards towards an objective. i fail to do any damage with my kans rokkits, the lootas destroy one razorback and one of the 5 marines dies, they fail a pinning test. i cause a stunned result on one razorback with the dakka guns from my warbikers. i assault his flamestorm preds with my 9 boyz+ mek and my 3 kans, wrecking one, immobilizing one, and stunning another.
He backs his formation of tanks up, hides his 4 marines behind another bastion where an objective is placed, and advances his libby dread again. his libby dread uses a psychic attack to make my warbikers take a ld test at -2, i fail and they fall off the board. He then shoots his immobilized flamestorm pred at my small boyz mob, causing a wound on every model, leaving the nob and mek with one remaining wound each. He then attempts to fire all of his assault cannons and lascannon preds that are able to shoot at my kans, finding he has moved some out of range, and the ones he manages to score hits against are in kff cover and i make epic saves for no damage at all. He fires his vindi at my three kans at top of table, scatters 6 inches and gets 4 boyz and one kan, 3 boyz die and the kan lives from the KFF save.
I advance all boyz mobz, 2 forwards, and one towards an objective at the top of the board, and the mek and nob advance towards his flamestorm pred. 3 kans to join the other two kans at the bottom of the table, i fail to do any damage with rokkits. My kans on the other side of the board also fail to hit with rokkits. i assault his immobilized flamestorm pred with 5 kans and finish the deal, then assault with nob and mek on his other flamestorm, failing to roll a single 6 with 8 attacks.
He backs off his flamestorm pred and positions it to hit the mek and nob. he swings his tank formation back to the middle of the field and backwards and brings his libby dread towards the mek and nob. he unloads into the mek and nob with lascannons and flamestorm pred, killing only the nob. He then autocannons my kans from his razorbacks and again i make ridiculous saves on them. the vindi advances towards my boyz near the top objective and kills 5 of them. he assaults my mek with his libby dread and fails to wound him, my mek immobilizes him in return.
I advance my 5 kans upwards toward his tank formation and libby dread. I advance the two central boyz squads forward towards two objectives, and advance the kans up high towards his vindicator. My lootas stun his flamestorm pred, my kans destroy his demolisher cannon with rokkits up high, and i shoot at one of the razorbacks but fail to hit with the three kans down low. the two kan squad joins the mek against his libby dread, the three other kans down low fail to reach his razorback due to a bad terrain test roll. i destroy one arm off his libby dread, but lose my mek.
He backs his razorback up onto the rear objective and slightly backs up his formation. he unloads into my 3 kans with all of his tanks except vindi, and finally kills the three kans who no longer receive cover from the dead mek. However i still have 5 remaining. He rams my kans up top with his weaponless vindi, i death or glory him and immobilize the vindi and he returns the favor, wrecking one kan. in assault i rip the other arm off his libby dread, but am still locked.
I call my waaaagh! My boyz reach his 4 marines on his objective, and he surrenders assuming 30 boyz and a mek will (and should easily) massacre his 4 marines, and my 30 boyz on the other side are within range to score next turn easily.
The combination of kans and KFF can be brutal on a good day of dice results, nearly impossible to kill if you can keep the 4's coming.
Spearhead sucks for orks, nothing like pinning a giant mob of boyz into a small area and making them walk the entire freaking board.
Flamestorm cannons are pretty much broken, i watched three of them kill over 1k points of marines and orks in two games, laying waste to anything falling underneath their template.
Libby dreads are very situational, great for making low ld units fall back and off the edge, especially units that throw 3d6 for the fallback move.
Boyz will be boyz, and good luck killing 120 of them buddy.
Razorback spam is very effective, but not for a long time as they begin to fall like, well, rhinos.
Footslogging across the board makes it impossible to contest or even reach the far back end of the table to contest, thats what the warbikers were for, but we know what happened with them.
TL dakka guns are a lot more useful then i imagined, pretty much TL heavy bolters with a lower ap value, but TL.
I made a few positioning mistakes with my meks, but got away with it due to lucky placement of kans behind terrain and a wrecked pred, granting me the much needed cover saves against mass razorback/tank spam.
