Sixth and final (!) game with the Dagon 'Nids, this time with Argol playing Hive Fleet Dagon and me playing DKoK.

This time the Tyranids was a dedicated second-turn list, with very few activations on the first turn, and with roughly half of the list appearing thereafter. We especially wanted to try playing with lots of Lictors, which are restricted to a maximum of 2 in the Army in the original F-ERC list (this particular cap has been removed in Hive Fleet Dagon).

The DKoK list was themed around fortifications and trenches, with only the HQ regiment riding Gorgons. At first I had thought to take a Deathstrike Silo, but after reading the stats it seems it must fire both its Missiles at once, and can't fire them one at a time (they are both 2 shots off the same weapon, instead of 2 separate weapons of the same type. A strict reading of the Single Shot rule states that any weapon with this special rule can only be fired once). Replaced it with some Bombards instead.

Given how mangled I got in the second turn, I'm pretty proud I managed to draw it out to turn 4. Those Death Rider Scouts did better than the rest of the army put together. Had my dice been better I'm convinced this would have been a pretty even game.

Talking it over after the game we both agreed that Lictor Spam doesn't seem to be broken, as they have quite a few limitations that keeps them under control.
