Crusade of Fire

My LGS launched a six-week campaign tonight utilizing the 'Crusade of Fire' expansion. At first I was hesitant to join, but I was told that it was a bit more relaxed than cutthroat tournaments so I decided to give it a shot.

Predictably, I lost my game (11-4), but fortunately I kept control of my four tiles on the campaign map. I can't be knocked out now until week five at the soonest. And let's face it, I probably won't win any of my games. I only play for fun so my lists aren't very competitive. Or spammy.

From nine to one, and then there were none.

There weren't really any highlights to the game, aside from my Chapter Master slaughtering an entire nine-man squad of Sternguard Veterans. And my Dreadnought crushing a Techmarine's skull with its fist.

In hindsight, though, the list I made was just terrible. Poorly thought out, marred by mistakes, and just an overall mess. It was also 1,500 points, which isn't my forte. My best lists and tactics are at 2,000 points. Anything less and I seem to handicap myself.

Hopefully next game goes a little better. But honestly I'm going to be surprised if I win a single game of this campaign. It should still be a fun experience though!
