Upcoming Battle: Chaos Space Marines vs Tau - 500 Points
Mission - Purge the Aliens
Battlefield - Vanguard Strike
Night Fight - 1st Turn
This is a pretty straight forward battle and we expect it to be bloody.
He is the list that will be taken by Dreese
HQ1 - Sorcerer w/ the Mark of Tzeentch, Veteran of the Long War and Aura of Dark Glory
E1 - 5x Chosen w/ the Mark of Tzeentch, Veteran of the Long War, 1x Power Weapon, and 1x Power Fist
E2 - Hellbrute w/ Heavy Flamer
T1 - 10x Cultist w/ Autoguns and 1x Heavy Stubber. Champion w/ Shotgun
T2 - 10x Cultist w/ 1x Flamer
This is the same list that he took against me a month or so ago and it has the potential to hurt someone. I definitely under estimated its destructive power in our game so I will be interested I seeing how it fairs in this match.
Austin have a new line up for his Tau, hoping that a transport may help him out. From what I can tell this is going to be what he fields.
HQ1 - Cadre Fireblade w/ Shield Drone
E1 - 2x Crisis Suits w/ Missile Pod and Plasma Rifle
T1 & T2 - 6x Fire Warriors w/ Sahs'ui and Shield Drone
T3 - 7 Fire Warriors and Devilfish w/ Twin-Lingked Smart Missile System and 2x Seeker Missiles
I am not sure what to say about the list other than it has potential. I have seen Austin go into battles with similar and then lose because of bad luck. So I am going to hold judgement until I actually see him play.
I went in to this battle backing Dreese for the win without knowing the Mission since he almost stole the game from me when we ran Relic, but this is Purge the Alien and Austin won't have to make an Objective grab and can comfortably sit back and shoot across the field. I believe the mission favors Austin. Dreese is going to have to work a little bit harder to walk away with a win.
