Nurgle Rotbringers vs Slaves To Darkness

I decided to drop by Neutral Grounds Megamall last Saturday, September 17, 2016 with Fred Escalona. We were met with Liam Razo and Jas Tolentino setting up a table for a game of Warhammer Age Of Sigmar. I wanted to see how a game plays out, and they did not disappoint. Jas used a cavalry-heavy and Tzeentch-themed Slaves To Darkness force, while Liam used a Putrid Blightking-heavy Nurgle Rotbringers force.

I didn’t get to witness the end of the match as I had to setup for a tournament at House Of Geek. But I am really excited and looking forward to building my Ironjawz in the near future.

Allies vs Axis Mega Match!

Posted by Dax Maliwat on the Dust Philippines Facebook group page.

Battle Report!

We had a 2 vs 2 mega match last Saturday at Neutral Grounds Cash And Carry. Each team used 250 points! I ran my Allied Heavy Rangers army supported by a Medium Walker Platoon and teamed up with papa Richard’s Axis army headed by Lara’s Command Platoon supported by the Bloody Baron piloting a Blitz aircraft.

On the other side of the table we faced papa Marc and papa Jake’s Allies army. They brought heavy hitters for this match, fielding two Six Shooters, a Bulldog, 2 Pelican Flyers, a boatload of Rangers, and Action Jackson’s Airdrop Platoon.

We used the new rulebook scenario where we were supposed to control 2 objective from opposite sides of the field.

Early game
The Allied opponents came in hard and fast. The two Pelicans swooped in and took out most of my Heavy Ranger units. Good thing the Airdrop Platoon elements mainly missed their rolls which allowed us to wipe them out upon entry.

Midgame
By this time, both armies are trying to position their units to avoid enemy fire. This is where Bloody Baron’s piloting skills earned him the match MVP. He was able to take out several units while evading ALL incoming enemy fire.

Late game
Both teams took heavy losses at this time. My Allies army is almost wiped out and the Baron was finally gunned down. We were able to take out some enemy units until the game ended with neither team completed the objective. After computing kill points, the Allies team won due to more kills.

One thing I forgot to do was take more pictures! We were so hooked in the match I only took a few pictures. Still a great match though. Epic game, boys!

Liam Razo’s Nurgle Rotbringers

Originally posted by Liam Razo on Age Of Sigmar Philippines.

Alrighty! So credits for the photos go to sir Kiko. I’ll be summarizing my experience in facing against 3 opponents with some nasty combos (well, at least in my head they were) and some of the difficulties I had facing against all three. I would like to thank all of my opponents as it was a fun learning experience for me; and especially the new General’s Handbook as it was an eye opener specifically at the scenarios.

So the list I brought was not something I expected to win with as I have played it against players like Sir Jas, Sir Athan, Sir Mike, Sir RJ, Sir Glenn (which we all play in Mega mall) and Sir Sunny, but am pretty sure most of you guys have seen it via pictures.

Glottkin 480pts – General of my Army
Plague Lord 100pts – Just an extra tough guy that doesn’t really do much honestly
5x Putrid Blightkings 180pts – Battalion for Rottbringers
5x Putrid Blightkings 180pts – Battalion for Rottbringers

Few model counts but tough to crack.

First one was against Sir RJ and his army of Death, with Neferata, Mortrarch of Blood, leading the force with her guards of Morgheist (scary units).

The scenario was the 5th on the GHB, which sadly I forgot the name of the scenario, but it’s basically diagonal deployment with 3 objectives. Any unit can get the objective so long as they’re in 6″ (or was it 3″?). Either way it was simple, but the worst was we had to divide our army in to 3 parts and field the first batch that’s the battalion. It was funny because both me and RJ have low model counts so we both deployed just 1 unit.

Sadly, at the end of it all, Sir RJ didn’t know that you had to declare reserve points for you to be able to summon any creature on the table, so Neferata couldn’t summon her other Morgheist that were in reserve.

Finale ended with the Glottkin killing her and some of her guards that came in on the 3rd turn, gaining me a big advantage at the later stages of the game. That’s 1 Major victory for me there.

It would have killed me most likely had the scenario been different but overall awesome game and we finish ours first to the point we got a 2nd game. Thanks, Sir RJ.

So 2nd round! Here we go!

I faced against Sir Tiny. At first glance I was very scared with his list. I didn’t know what the Daemon Prince Belakor can do, nor the other Daemon Prince with the Mark of Slaanesh. It was no surprise that he popped Belakor’s “Friendship is Magic” on me and declares that everytime my Putrid Blightkings (yes he picked one) moves, or does anything I have to roll a D6. 1-3 I can continue but on 4-6 they suddenly become friends and cannot do ANYTHING! SWEET MOTHER OF NURGLE ALKSJHSKHDS!

So the scenario in this one, it’s 3 objectives in the middle, but only heroes can capture it and it cannot be contested until the first hero that approach the objective dies. I was sweating at this point cause I only had 2 heroes while Sir Tiny had 4! I had to focus on killing his 2 heroes at the very least and had my Plague Lord hold that 2nd objective.

In the end, I scored more victory points because Sir Tiny didn’t realize it until much later that the objective markers cannot be contested unless the hero is killed.

It was a major victory for me then but it was a close one!! Thank you, Sir Tiny. I learned a lot, especially with all the Friendship going on on the field.

And of course the Finals is up in the grill.

Sir Patrick’s list, I already know from the get go as I’ve seen his amazing paint jobs on it being posted here. But the actual devastating effect I was not prepared for.

My Glottkin literally got STOMPED!! (no pun intended)

Scenario was pretty much simple, you defend your objective on your border with at least 5 models, I defend mine. If you capture the enemy’s objective and you keep yours then its a major victory if not then its just a minor victory.

Its not in the picture I know but after 2 battles the 3 brothers couldn’t handle the sustain damage and has DIED!!! My only way out of this situation and in order for him NOT to get the major victory was for me to kill his knights and it was the only thing I had on my mind because that 2+ armor save re-rollable daemon prince of his ain’t gonna be off the table anytime soon.

I did however manage to kill his Lord on Manticore with my Putrid Blightkings. It was probably the most brutal thing they have ever done as a unit, 32 wounds ain’t something to scoff at even with his reroll armor saves of 1 it wasn’t enough and they manage to kill him.

Either way it was an epic clash for a finale and Thank you, Sir Patrick! I originally had some bad view on the knights but at this point I am at a loss for words.

All New Warfare 2016 – Week 36

The Protectorate of Menoth continues its god-like dominance over Gears And Games with Severius leading their righteous crusade! Forces of Mercenaries, led by Gorten Grundback and the Traitor Warlord, Magnus, and Khador, led by Kommander Sorscha and Kommander Orsus Zoktavir, have tried to invade Gears And Games but have failed to even get a substantial foothold in the region. Forces of Cryx and Trollbloods have also been spotted, raiding the outskirts region of Gears And Games. The Soul Weaver, Deneghra, as well as Ragnar Skysplitter and the Hunters Grim, have all made strong attempts to shatter the Protectorate’s hold, but have all been unsuccessful! More and more followers of Menoth flock towards the Gears And Games Grand Cathedral City, built in honor of the Creator!

Battles between the Convergence of Cyriss and Mercenaries have erupted at the House Of Geek! Will these skirmishes break the Legion of Everblight’s control over House Of Geek? Ashlynn D’Elyse have been meeting the forces of the Convergence head on, but have been defeated by the Forge Master Syntherion and the Iron Mother Directrix. The Dark Prince of Umbrey challenged the Forge Master and has successfully repelled the Convergence warcaster in their encounter. With Khador’s vaunted heavy warjacks, Vladimir Tzepesci dispatched what seemed to be the initial construction of a Convergence node.

Posting some results from last Mondays Holiday Rumble.

We tested the Rumble format with:

Vlad1 (me) against Kreoss1 (Ayo). My list primarily was a fun list with some All Star ‘Jack team of Beast-09, Behemoth and Drago. Drago was not as strong as he was though.

After systematically killing Kreoss’ Cinerators, two of the Menite jacks were reduced to one box each with the armor piercing punches from the Behemoth.

In the last turn, Vlad himself charged Kreoss in a caster-to-caster duel which led to Kreoss’ destruction!

Khador wins!

Another game I failed to take pictures of was the one with Plim.

It was a battle between Vlad1 (me) and Syntherion (Paul). I used the same fun list (but the Convergence had a colossal because Plim tried to powergame me).

This game was a very short one because by turn 2 clear charge lanes towards the Prime Axiom from Behemoth and Beast-09 made it so juicy to use Vlad’s feat and boom! We were in the Colossal’s face! Beast-09 bringing the Ice Axe down on the Prime Axiom and dealing severe Pow19 hits while the Behemoth finished the job.

At this point Plim conceded.

I think the Rumble format is a very good Khadoran format.

Third battle was between Pork and Plim. This was Ashlyn (Pork) vs Syntherion (Plim). Was not really watching the game since I was busy battling Kreoss at the time.

Banners of Khador still fly over Charlie Does Manila as forces of the Motherland have begun construction of a railway central station, but a strong Retribution of Scyrah spearhead has been spotted, led by the Incissar of the Dawnguard, Vyros, himself! Forces of the Protectorate of Menoth, as well as Circle Orboros and Minions have been more visible in their invasions into Charlie Does Manila as well! Skorne’s Supreme Aptimus Zaal, Circle Orboros’ Baldur the Stonecleaver have all fallen to Vyros’ Tide Of War! Only the Protectorate of Menoth’s Burning Truth, Malekus, stands defiant in the face of these overwhelming odds!

Skaven vs Sylvaneth/Wanderers

Originally posted by Sunny Yu on Warhammer: Age Of Sigmar Philippines Facebook group page.

Happening now at MEGAMALL NG – Jas Tolentino’s Skaven vs Sunny Yu’s Wanderers/Sylvaneth at 1000 GW points. We rolled the Take and Hold Scenario of the Pitched Battle matched play setting.

Elves go first and move forward.

Started to take out the Skaven shooting, and took out one Warpfire Thrower.

Skaven turn, the whole hoard moves forward. The two war machines fail to hit. Jas forgot that if the target has 10 models or more, you have +1 to hit and do 2d6 damage.

A unit of Clanrats reaches the Kurnoth Hunters and battle begins! The Kurnoth Hunters proved to be more than the Clanrats can handle!

Jas gets consecutive turns on turn 2, winning all initiative rolls. The war machines started connecting this time, dealing 2d6 wounds with each of their shots (ouch!).

And here they come! Forty Stormvermins! His Hero plants his banner, making akll units immune to Bravery checks, and rerolling all 1’s to hit as well.

 

Fighting was fierce as the Stormvermins were able to extend to reach the Waywatchers. The Warderer unit, including the Warhawk Rider, got dispatched by their Skaven attackers!

Bottom of the second turn, clearly the Kurnoth Hunters needed help, so the Eternal Guard and Branchwych move forward.

Disaster strikes as not only do the Eternal Guard fail to assault, but the Branchwych also has been failing to cast her spells in the last two turns. The Stormvermin rend  at the Branchwych! That turn hurt…

Turn 3, Jas’ war machines continue to wreak havoc, killing 7 archers and 5 Eternal Guard. Needing 2+ to hit and 3+ to wound and rolling 2d6 wounds, the Skaven were decimating the Wanderers!

But the Kurnoth Hunters, now less than half strength, were able to wipe out the last of the Stormvermins. Together with the remaining Eternal Guard start to make for the Skaven objectives, killing the remainign Warpfire Thrower in the process.

The last few turns see more fighting at the Skaven objective. But the toll on fighters bring down both forces to less than five models, thus neither can claim the objective.

At the conclusion of the match, the Skaven force managed to score 540 to the Wanderers/Sylvaneth’s 440, making it a minor victory for the Grand Alliance of Chaos!

Post Battle

Wow! Those war machines, 40 Stormvermin and the boost to abilities by the banner was used very well by Jas to eke out a minor victory. In hindsight, the assault of the Branchwych was a bad gamble which took out the much needed shield for the Kurnoth Hunters. The Kurnoth Hunters were great, being able to survive the vermin onslaught. Six models seem optimal for a 1000 pt list. Also didn’t have a counter to the Skaven war machines which proved costly. Still well played by Jas today, using the different elements to his advantage. Cheers and congrats on the win!

Great game as always, Sir Sunny. I have great respect on those Kurnoth (kunat) Hunters. Imagine if you had them buffed on those saves, it’ll be much difficult for the Stormvermin taking them down. The mix of Sylvaneth and Wanderers is still a good combination IMO. And love the cool colors again, btw. A sage painter once said that light colors keeps you calm and relaxed while playing. Hehe.
