Tokyo Tactical 40k Battle Reports

Post by Dekana » Mon Jan 11, 2021 3:20 pm

I've been playing monthly 40k games in Tokyo since late last year. Follow along with the Auran 81st Imperial Guard regiment as we beat up space marines and lose to everything else!

Nice reports! Makes me long for a post covid time when getting on a shinkansen and trying to catch some games seems like a good idea.

Great job beating the marines. People are down on Guard competitively at the moment but those Manticores are monsters and all that plasma can do real work.

Conversely not too surprised you had a rough time against demons. They are extremely good right now and I fear the local Chaos players awakening to their power :lol:

Actually, this might be my last game for awhile as well. The situation in Tokyo is going downhill fast, so I think I'll skip the next few meetups until a vaccine is ready.

My plasma-heavy lists are almost a hard counter to marines. :twisted:
But yeah, IG have had a rough time winning games since 7th edition. The move to objective-based games in 8th was not been great since we have a hard time staying on objectives without immediately dying. And then the smaller table size in 9th edition means half the armies charge on turn 1 now, which is basically game over for us.

I keep experimenting with different lists though, so maybe eventually I'll find something that feels strong!
