Planetstrike League Round 2 Game 1

In addition to the ToFG, I am also playing my daemons in a Planetstrike League through my local chapter of the 40kFightClub. It started 4 weeks ago and in Round 1, I lost both games to Ultramarines, although they were both close battles. In this round, my opponent is Tau. Last night, we had to play the Desperate Assault mission and I was the defender.

I set up the table with three ruined temples as the objectives and my opponent got to place a bastion as a fourth objective. My army consisted of:

- 1 Bloodthirster
- 1 Lord of Change
- 1 Great Unclean One
- 6 Bloodcrushers
- 6 Beasts of Nurgle
- 6 Flamers
- 10 Plaguebearers
- 10 Plaguebearers
- 2 Soulgrinders
- 1 Daemon Prince of Nurgle
- 1 Daemon Prince of Slaanesh

His army consisted of Commander Shadowsun, 3 hammerheads, 2 units of kroot, and lots of fire warrior and stealth suit squads.

Unfortunately, I did not take notes during the game so I cannot write a detailed battle report, but mostly the game was me trying to weather the Tau shooting until I could assault. Anything that got assaulted by the daemons died and any daemons left out in the open got shot up, although my opponent was rolling badly on his hits and wounds and I was rolling good saves.

I got the win by solely holding one objective and contesting the other three. Here are some picture from early in the battle (I did not take any later on).

Below is a cool picture from the game going on next to mine. It was Orks attacking and Necrons defending.
