Death Guards vs Astra Militarum

Death Guard vs Astra Militarum (1,750 pts) – Battle Report

List Theory

It’s all about the Poxwalkers.  I’ve only played one game with Necrosius, which was an utter disaster, and I needed to try him again.  As a coincidence it then happened that Chapter Approved 2019 came out which dropped the points cost for Poxwalkers and Typhus.  So my course was set.

The List

I used the same list as I did in my last game against the Dark Eldar.  In part this was because I’m feeling under the weather, in part because I’m busy but also because I wanted to give it another go as I felt my win was somewhat lucky.  Basically I’m still wondering how to rate Rotigus now that I’ve also got the Bilepiper to back him up.

Given that Necrosius was finished I now wanted to get him on the tabletop to see how he would do.  I wasn’t expecting much and considered my list pretty “fluffy” and non-competitive. I came up against three Imperial Knights backed by the loyal 32 acting as a Command Point battery.  Oh my.

Knights are a real weak spot for my Death Guard and facing three of them is a nightmare at the best of times yet alone when I’m playing around with Poxwalkers and Necrosius.

Tanks!

I’ve played Cadian Shock’s Astra Militarum about 7 times now, and he’s beaten me once.  So, as it turned out, he was really out to get me.  This game was a few weeks ago, life has intervened somewhat, but I think I remember it fairly well as it was pretty memorable, for all the wrong reasons…

I’ve been having real trouble taking on Knights, and in this game there would be three of the things…

List Theory

At first I became a bit pre-occupied trying to build a list that could take on the Knights.  Then, at the last minute, I though to the Plague Garden with it and built the list that I wanted to play and would have fun with.

So the heart would be a Land Raider carrying Typhus and his Deathshroud bodyguard.  I’d also take two Foetid Bloat Drones and a Daemon Prince to give me something speedy.  Blightlord Terminators are also fun and something that I feel I need to practice more with so they went into the list too.

The infantry would be two squads of Plasma equipped Plague Marines and a unit of Cultists.  A Chaos Lord also went into the mix to allow for the overcharging of the Plasma.  They’d be holding the backline.

Death Guard vs the Imperium (1,750 pts)

I’ve a problem taking on T8 armoured things, in particular super heavies likes Baneblades or Knights.  I need to learn how I can deal with them, there’s some mix of army changes and my own skill set that needs to be considered.  So in this game I took on an army with two giant Imperial Knights and two smaller Armigers, this is going to be a challenge…
