This week's battle report sees my Genestealers Cults take on Ben's Space Wolves in a maelstrom of war game.
This game was fought at the Spiky Club in Reading and featured the second outing for my Genestealers Cult.
My army consisted of:
Patriarch- Mass Hypnosis (Pt)
Magus- Force Stave, Might from Beyond (M)
Primus- Needle Pistol, Bonesword, Toxic Injector Claw (Pr)
10 Neophyte Hybrids- Mining Laser, Grenade Launcher, Autogun (N1)
10 Neophyte Hybrids- Mining Laser, Autogun (N2)
10 Acolyte Hybrids- 2 Heavy Rock Cutters (A1)
10 Acolyte Hybrids- 2 Heavy Rock Drills (A2)
10 Acolyte Hybrids- 2 Heavy Rock Saws (A3)
5 Acolyte Hybrids (A4)
15 Purestrain Genestealers- Purestrain Talons, Rending Claws (PG)
4 Aberrants- Power Hammers (Ab1)
4 Aberrants- Power Picks (Ab2)
Scout Sentinel- Heavy Flamer (S1)
Scout Sentinel- Heavy Flamer (S2)
Scout Sentinel- Multi-laser (S3)
Goliath Rockgrinder- Heavy Stubber, Clearance Incinerator (GR1)
Goliath Rockgrinder- Heavy Stubber, Clearance Incinerator (GR2)
Cult Leman Russ- Battle Cannon, 3 Heavy Bolters (LR)
12 Command Points
I decided to go for a massed force for my Cult to get those precious command points. This would be the first game where I would be testing my Leman Russ and Scout Sentinels. I was hoping they would provide some good board control with the Sentinels and the Leman Russ would give some good firepower for the Space Wolves.
This would allow me to put a fair few units in Cult Ambush to attack the Marines.
