This was a rematch against Cadian Shock‘s Astra Militarum who I’ve played quite a few times. Cadian Shock’s own write up can be read here:
I knew that I wanted to try Epidemius out again as I’ve only played him once before. This game was going to be slight larger than that one, 2,000 points rather than 1,750, and so I had a bit more room to take even more Daemons. More Daemons maximises the chances to trigger the buffs that Epidemius provides and maximises the number of units that benefit from those buffs. Given that I had a few more points I worked Rotigus into the list and spent a little bit more on taking some extra Plague Marines, three squads of five this time. My worry was that Cadian Shock was going to bring a plethora of Leman Russ tanks, as he’s done before, and given that this list would have a real lack of S8 anti-tank weaponry I might have trouble dealing with it. If I could get Epidemius to trigger his buffs then the Plagueburst Crawlers would end up with S8 auto-hitting weaponry. But it could be a problem.
