Following Game 1, I went into Game 2 1-0 and the dream was still alive…
My list can again be seen here while my opponent’s (Dean) list included 2 19x Bezerkers, 2x Sable Claws, three Chaos characters including a Sorcerer, 3x3x Nurglings, 3x3x Mortar Renegades, 10x Renegades and 2x Company Commanders (Dean also runs the Blog for the Blood God). The Sable Claws and Bezerkers are obviously the work horses of this list and given I have many flyers, the Sable Claws are pretty important targets while those Bezerkers could ruin my day pretty quickly with whatever they touch in combat. I do not have a lot of infantry in the list so I will need to be wise about my placement to seal off deep striking assaults. The Sable Claws though do have a very large footprint. There is very little shooting in the list though (9 mortars and the Sable Claws). Dean choose Death by a Thousand Cuts, Big Game Hunter and Recon for his secondary objectives and I choose Headhunter, Behind Enemy Lines and Recon as mine. Mistake made here which we will go into.
This is an excellent game example of how you can lock yourself in combat though, so keep your eyes peeled for this.
