Foule Ole Gron And Weak Eldar Stomachs
3 bloat Drones 4 units of Death Guard traitor marines and 2 units of 10 cultists can be seen. A daemon Prince hides behind the Bloat Drones and there is a Nurgle character in there too. Below 10 Guardians a D Cannon and Farseer take cover behind the crater and 8 Dark Reapers squeeze into a much smaller crater on the left. To the right of the Guardians is my Wave Serpent filled to the brim with Howling Banshees and a Warlock. The Windriders and second Wave Serpent containing Dire Avengers are over here. I used the Phantasm stratagem as I realised there was a gaping hole in my centre and Pat had some deepstriking Terminator marines or something like that.The newly repositioned Windriders means that if Pat goes first I don't have some very hard to kill Nurgle characters hanging around my nether regions like infected hemorrhoids.
As most 40K heroes do, the Daemon Prince skulks around near the back hoping to look inconspicuous and not attract the attention of some eagle eyed Eldar. Pat has cinematically lain a Bloat Drone on it's side to denote it demise.My Swooping Hawks descend, shoot up the unit of cultists (not pictured because they're dead) and gain me the First Blood VP. Also pictured is Pat's rather fancy dice rolling tray. He brought two so I didn't feel marginalised.
One of the bloat Drones is gone, as are 5 Dark Reapers. My D-cannon is also gone. I was rather disappointed that Pat targeted it as the plan was for it to destroy the shit out of all the Death Guard. You will notice Foule Ole Gron in the bastion, he has an important role to play in this battle, hence him being named in the title.
The Wave Serpent buggers off fully expected the Banshees to open a can of Whupass on the Daemon Prince.The Wave Serpent attempts to look like a bigger threat than the Farseer. This pathetic ruse was not bought by Pat.
