I played Sam-I-Am and his Orks-In-Progress not too long ago... and it was a fairly crushing defeat.
|Ah, the balanced approach!|
|I was testing (aren't I always) an idea... if one HBU with Veil is great - and it is - wouldn't two be better? I was also curious how a foot list would do.|
|I wasn't able to defeat the Bikes on the charge, and the counter was a bitch. Without the Destroyer Lord, the Wraiths combat punch is lacking. Still a great unit - you just can't... you know... throw them up the middle like I did!|
|This was a bit of a desperation move. I really needed another turn before using Veil, but the Orks were on me too quick. I needed a great turn here, but no mas.|
|And here's why! I drifted a bit too close with the unpainted unit, so I was going to be countered by one unit or another.|
|Here, I'd left the Lord behind to slow the advance. He did fine against Bikes, but the Power Klaws will do him in.|
|The Trukk is wrecked; the Nobs? Not so much.|
I liked Sam-I-Am's army, since I'm a fan of the mixed-arms approach. My army lost a lot of steam with the changes I'd made, so the double-Veil idea can be considered a failure.
At least with HBUs... uh.
I've got another idea to test...
