Unbound Tyranid & Chaos (Forgefiend in the middle of the picture and Heldrake in reserve) army faces off against a Dark Angel Deathwing force.
The Forgefiend was repositioned to be 12″ from the Termigaunts (as they’re allied but must deployed 12″ from each other).
The Dark Angel force used the normal Force Organization Chart, but had the Shadowsword as its Lord of War, under agreement (it’s not a Dark Angel unit). See up-close pictures of the Shadowsword here!
We used the first Maelstrom of War scenario, just to use 3 of the Objective Cards (center of the table).
These are the cards I drew as the Tyranid player. We had to look it up, but you can draw and earn Victory Points for the same result.
End of the Tyranid’s first turn – Biovores killed a couple of Deathwing, the Termigaunts charged into the cathedral to control Objective Point 1 to earn 2 Victory Points!
During the Dark Angel turn, Belial teleported in with his Terminator guard to take control of the cathedral, then the Tervigon and Forgefiend shot on them before the Tervigon assaulted in.
Belial won after a couple rounds…
Then the Deathwing with the Librarian assaulted the Tervigons to complete one of their Objective Cards and earn their 4th Victory Point (after killing the Flying Hive Tyrant)…winning the game 4 to 2.
The Psyker Phase went pretty smoothly but Jack isn’t convinced. I’d hoped that assault would be made a little more effective. Overall this is definitely more 6.5 than a whole new 7th edition.
