I had the absolute pleasure of running the Wolves out at Greetings for the Warp’s Age of Darkness Horus Heresy event this weekend. I had five fantastic games over two days, against a variety of armies.
The event called for 3000pts, i chose Hvarl Redblade as the army’s Warlord, photo and army list included below:
4 wins out of 5 games and a number of nominations for best army / favourite opponent saw me awarded 3rd place in the competition overall.
Games as follows:
Game 01: Mission 05 against Thousand Sons (Peter Lenon). Despite taking a hammering the Wolves won 1-0 on vps, with the Warlord Kill.
Game 02: Mission 01 against Blood Angels (James Dixon). The scions of Baal loved up to their vicious reputation and claimed the win 17-14 on vps.
Game 03: Mission 04 against Iron Warriors (Jaimie Harcort-billingham @the_iron_drake). Wolves beat Perturabo’s whelps back with an 11-6 victory.
Game 04: Mission 05 against Sons of Horus (Chris Gibson @theunbrokenchain). The Warmaster’s finest were beaten through a sneaky Price of Failure kill to give a final result of 2-1 on vps to the wolves.
Game 05: Mission 02 against Death Guard (Matt Gould @west_berks_gaming). A very bloody exchange saw the wolves victorious 11-9 on vps.
While taking 3rd place was fantastic, five excellent games against five fun opponents made the event for me. Greetings for the Warp put on superb events and i would highly recommend getting to one if you are able.
If all of that wasn’t enough, I am humbled and rather honoured to be selected by the gentlemen from Heralds of Heresy Podcast as the winner of their award for ‘best loyalist army’ thanks again chaps, i’m still smiling about it!
Until Next Winter…
