+ Death Kontinues +

Couple more mini-batreps from the last few weeks.

Alpha Legion & Worldeaters & Orks vs. Tyranids [4500] - Loss, and that's going all of us versus one guy's 'nid army. My lads were only able to stick it out until the end of our turn 2 (had to go home and tend to the girlfriend), and didn't really manage anything spectacular in that time. Killed some genestealers and a ravener or two, and the dread killed itself slamming into a warrior squad it couldn't instant death to bitz. Have to say I'm not a fan of that synapse ignoring instant death rot ... Anyway, Legionnaires pulled out early and apparently things went south from there. Meh.

Alpha Legion vs. Space Wolves [1500] - Draw, against an army I didn't feel too great about going in. Opponent's (gorgeous) Wolves army was recently switched over to more assaulty - bike squad, HQ bike squad, 2 rhino squads, 3 tornados, dakka russ, ven dread, BIG walking squad - and he claimed he didn't know how to use it. In the end, we agreed luck, or his lack of it, was the deciding factor for the most part. Example: after charging forward and mashing some bikes to bits, my dread is left facing his 10 strong squad with 2 fists and 1 meltagun. He rolls snake eyes for pen with the melta, then charges and fails to pen with 4 fist attaks. My dread kills 1 wolf, outnumbers and breaks the squad, catching and killing it. Next turn my dread frenzies into his ven dread, fragging it but losing it's cannon and being immobilized. This effectively shut down half his army, leaving the exterminator to continue mowing my cultists away. Honestly happy with a draw against Wolves.

Paint Update: 10/10 CSM squad done, 6/6 daemonette squad done, 2/8 CSM squad done! Now just need new camera batteries!

+ 1500 List +

Figure it's worth posting the 1500 point list I've been running, as the Legionnaires are doing suprisingly well!

Chaos Lord - MoCU, infiltrate, power weapon, bolt pistol, aura, mutation, speed, strength, melta bombs, frags = 147

1 Obliterator = 70

10 CSM - MoCU, infiltrate, autocannon, plasma gun, AC w/ Kai gun, power weapon = 228
8 CSM - MoCU, lascannon, flamer, AC w/ powerfist, mutation = 179
Rhino - Mutated hull, havok launcher, extra armor, smoke = 113
20 Assassin Cultists - MoCU, melta bombs, champ w/ power weapon = 195
10 Scout Cultists - MoCU, champ = 75
6 Daemonettes = 90
6 Daemonettes = 90

Heavy Support
Dreadnought - Plasma cannon, mutated hull, heavy flamer = 157
6 Havoks - MoCU, infilrate, 3 missile launchers = 156

1500 points
68 models, 1 APC & 1 dread

Plans are in the works to go Undivided and replace the cultists with horrors/flamers and the speed lord with a speedy daemon prince. That is, if the bitz for the prince I ordered a month ago from my FLGS show up.
