So i had my first game of epic 40000, since the early 2000s, yesterday and it was a lot of fun. My lovely wife played with me. She really likest he miniatures, but isn t into gaming or stratetic thinking. So this game was all about fun and getting used tot he rules again. We played 1000 Points IG against Blood Angels. I used the white dwarf list and and online list fort he 30k units. We didn t used a lot terrain, i wanted to keep it simple for this game and the table wasn t that large. We started 100cm away from each other and both had one cature and rescue mission.
Turn one:
Katharina got excited to get both of her mission objectives in the first turned. That´s why she decided to march with her major tank unit to both. The major failure of the game, as she soon realized. But hey, this game was for learning. I was lucky so my tanks got into the range of half of her unit. The dices where not my friends, but i killed all tanks close tot he objective. Meanwhile the deathcompany catches one of my objects and Katharina took one of hers with the surviving tanks
Turn two:
She tried again to get teh secound objective and now hast o face all my tanks including the superheavys. Her superneavys moved closer to my tanks, to help hers. My major tanks concentrated on firing and didnt moved much, except the super heavys. The death company stayed save in the woods. I wanted to finish the tanks first, before i attacked he infantery. My only loose so far was 2 predator who failed two move threw the ruins twice (!!) and finally destroyed himself(!!!) in the following shooting she lost most of her major tanks and the first baneblade got damaged. He should have been destroyed by my superheavys, but i totallly failed with the dices
Turn three:
I decieded to attack her duged in infantery now with my deathcompany and to finally kill the rest of her major tanks and the superheavys. I was very curios how the deathcompany would fight. She concentrated all possible fire on them and made some cassultys, but what was more importent, 2 markers. Some of my superheavys shoot at her infantery, to help the deathcompany and the major tanks killed the rest of hers ( with the last shoot, again no friendly dices for me) . the we came to close combat and thats where i was suprised a bit. Because of her many units close in 15cm, my looses in the shooting phase and the more markers on my unit i only got +1 . i thought it woud have been easier to kill those guys. I got luck and the final throw and she lost the phase and took some heavy looses.
Turn four:
I move closer with my tanks. The deathcompany attacked again and katharina rallyed her infantery to face my army again. In the next shooting she killed all instead of one stand oft he deathcompany, but my tanks killed both superheavys and a lot of her infantery.
Turn five:
She lost the rest of her units, win fort he blood angels.

It was a lot of fun, of course we didn t had many units and not so much stace so it wasn t so much strategy, but i think that was good fort he first game. I know i could have used drop pods also, but i didn t wanted to bring that option in, also i couldn t have taken the mission objective then. If you look at the army moral, then you see how close it was, their. If she didn t lost so many tanks at the beginning, then i could have easily lost. Also i have to check the deathcompany again, because i thought they here stronger. We might play again this evening or tomorrow.
