Gotta Break it down..
We rolled up Crusade with 5 objs and it was the length of the table. Sadly I got the side that butted up against the other table haha.. He won the roll and started setting up, I got the D3 Re Rolls Warlord Trait. It's pretty cool but sadly every one I rolled rolled the same on the re roll hah.
I only ran one Spiritseer who got extra/no run power and the Tears Prime. Would be nice to use together but sadly not enough Warp Charges and I didn't take the stone. Again playing Iyanden rules.
Wraithknight - Warlord
WG w/ D-Sy x 5
Serpent SL, SC, HF
Dire Avengers x 10
Serpent SL, SC
Jetbikes x 5
Rangers x 5
Warp Spiders x 9
Vyper SC, SC x 2
War Walkers ScatL, SC x3
The Wrraithknight took a lot of heat this game and he got him down to 1 wound but he help strong on numerous rolls. His two defining moments were stomping the Chapter Master flat with one hit.. Pulp. Then After the Riptide and Buff Commander hit and run'd out (I rolled a 1) he saved a ton of shots but took the AP2 no cover wounds taking him down to 1 but he would not fall. My turn I Distorted the Buff Commander into the Warp, he failed his Look Out Sir roll.
The Nightspinner again did very well, my first turn took out the Thunderfire Gunner out then killed a few drones and Kroot. For it's price it's a very good unit that can really cause some grief, with the Heavy Slot not being as choked you might think about slipping one in. At least give it a shot and see how it goes. I do want to test it out more, against a few other armies but still. It performs.
The Vypers sadly did nothing, I was keeping them ready in case his Grav Gun bikes got too close but thankfully the Spiders put the hurt on them then a Serpent finished them off first turn. So they just flew back and forth, I wanted to keep them out of his Broadside's SMS range. They just guarded.
The War Walkers again did well blasting a Riptide off the board, still not the biggest fan of their look but they lay out the hurt. And getting 6 usually TL'd S6 AP2 shots is nice!
