I got to play my first game against nids today and it was a lot of fun. My opponent was Chris Kluwe and he really brought a solid list to the table. I have to admit I was kind of underestimating him going in to the fight, but I should have thought about it a little harder, that's what I get!
The scenario was kill points and Dawn of War, which is kind of a double ouch for my army, but the Nids were sporting 2 tervigons which are KP makers.
Dawn Of War always messes me up with deployment, but I just have to learn some better placement in that scenario. I should have castled up and protected my troops but instead I tried to separate into two main groups. This allowed the Doom to drop in and scoop up a crisis squad , some Broadsides, and a full pathfinder squad. What I needed to do with my deployment was make a tank wall to protect my troops from the Doom.
It will be fun to have a rematch, the dice were definitely a roller coaster on both sides. I have a few ideas on deployment and what to target. I really wish i could have started with my pathfinders on the field :(
Tervigons are crazy!
