Okay, think 2 weeks ago. What were you doing?
I was getting introduced to a nifty little psychic power called Sanctuary.
Let's play the 'You Can't Do Squat' game - last introduced by GW in the form of trikes and beards. Not be be confused with my fabulous cousin's female friends.
Here's the picture.
This is me, playing an interesting if not particularly tough Daemonhunters / Space Marines mixed arms force. I wasn't terribly worried about anything except the Land Raider, but given it was an objectives game out of the new Battle Missions book, I figured I could safely kill everything and rack up objective counters. See, every turn a troops choice is touching the objective, you get a nifty counter: whoever has the most counters wins.
No problem, right? I mean, I've got a mean list, even including the two Khorne Chariots I saddled myself with. By the way, they suck - but let's move on.
Birdsong is a crafty player. He purchased an Inquisitor for the express purpose of playing me, and it just so happens this was the perfect game to use him.
'Cause - wait for it - the Inquisitor is in the Land Raider, right between two units of Scouts. Each unit of Scouts is touching an objective...
You see it coming? The Inquisitor casts Sanctuary and places a 3-inch bubble of Piss Off around the Land Raider. Meaning I can't touch the Land Raider or either unit of Scouts.
Game over, man, game over.
I destroyed everything else, with Turns to spare, but it was too late. I couldn't come close to matching the number of counters Birdsong put away, the whole time taking pot shots from his Bubble of Bullshit... Wonder Twin powers: Activate! Form of: Nonsense!
I loved it. Good on you, Birdsong. Until next time - Brent
