Black Storm Arrives on Medusa V

Not that I expect my participation to be any greater than previous global campaigns... but I can dream!

I've got a big 5000 pt game of Epic against Adam and his fearsome Eldar tonight. There was much speculation with Chris over what I would be facing and how best to deal with it. My original list went with a Banelord and a Ravager but I decided it was too unweildy. Then the possibility of Adam going either air heavy or titan heavy came up. I could deal with either with enough notice but since I didn't know, I had to come up with a plan that could account for either possibility as best I could.

In the end, I went for something that Chaos does very well in Epic: infantry. Chaos marines are all round good troops: decent armour, nice firefight and close combat, and good sized formations. I also went for as much speed as I could muster.

See the first two rows in the picture? Those will be advancing towards the Eldar as quickly as possible, while the titans in the last row will be supporting the advance. The terminators will probably be Void Spinner hunting and the Defiler platoon defending the Blitz. Hopefully the Ravager titan will worry him enough to keep him from hitting my infantry platoons too hard until its too late.

Battle report and pictures tomorrow.
