This is exactly the same list that I used in my last game against the T’au, so have a look at that for some of the thoughts behind it. In that game the Death Shroud and Typhus didn’t achieve very much so I wanted to use them again. I was also curious to see how a list that dominated the T’au would perform against another opponent, so using the whole list again seemed like a good idea.
We rolled the Raid mission from the Grand Tournament 2021 book. This would have us deploying along the short edges of the table with our deployment zones being 24″ apart. There would be six objectives on the table and a mission specific secondary, Raid Supply Lines. This gives points for controlling the two objectives that are in your opponents deployment zone.
We had enough line of sight blocking ruins on the table that you couldn’t see from one end of the table to there other, we’d have to manoeuvre. We both took advantages of this and deployed our units hidden behind ruins and therefor out of sight of the enemy. I’m planning on really pushing hard into the enemy’s deployment zone so I put my Terminators, the Death Shroud and Typhus, into deep strike.
I take the following secondary objectives:
- Spread the sickness – Contaminate objectives, I’d be using my Poxwalkers to do this.
- Behind enemy lines – Get units into the enemy deployment zone, I thought my flying units might be able to this if the T’au hung back and acted as a gun line.
- Raid Supply Lines – If I’m going to be behind enemy lines anyway it seems prudent to combine that with earning more points for taking their objectives.
The Space Wolves would take the first turn.Continue reading “Death Guard vs Space Wolves (1000 pts) – Battle Report”
