Another 40k game and the first battle of the year! I faced a full fledged 1500pts Harlequins force this time
I had two sicarans, Orth, Ferrus, termis and two tacticals, one of them in a rhino
I got first turn and killed a death jester, eraning first blood
A skimmer was killed by Orth
One of the other death jesters fired...
... and blew one of the sicarans!
My reserves arrived in the next turn outflanking the enemy
The death jester was fury of the legioned by the tactical
The harlequins went for a head on charge
Ferrus charged the solitary
Who would hold him for the rest of the battle thanks to his 3++ save and some neat psychic powers
My marines shrugged off the eldar's flimsy witchcraft as ususal
The termies and some harlequins contacted
With an even outocome
a bad rolling created a true "serpent's nest"
Ferrus was soon surrounded and fighting for his life
The tacticals disembarking
While Orth killed his second skimmer
In the right more harelquins charged a volkite support squad
Who miraculously held (altough not for long)
The combat in the center was beginning to look bad for the termies
I countercharged in the right
And in the left, two bad moves who would affect the battle's outcome, never come to grips with harlequins if you can prevent it
Hope was born
But soon shattered
Nothing standing between the harlequins and my objective save Orth
The rhino would seize his objective
While Orth protected mine
Orth's Sicaran "Black Sun" suffered some minor scratches from haywire grenades
Ferrus finally killed the soltary after turns unumbered
But the harlequins disengaged thanks to hit and run contesting their objective.
I got: 1-linebreaker, 1-first blood while the harlequins got 2-linebreaker: a tie then!
