Battle Report! Salamanders vs. Demons - 2000 points


To feature the recently completed Space Marines Salamanders army, we ran them through the paces in a battle report versus Kenny's Demons.  This game wasn't quite as close as our previous one, but still features lots of pictures of great looking models.


We used the same scenario as was used at Tacticon and similar to the format of the ATC, with all three objectives (KP = Kill Points; C+C = Capture and Control; SG = Seize Ground) and a random Die roll to determine deployment.  We rolled and got Pitched Battle for deployment and I set up first.

Demons Take the Center of the Table


Top of Turn 1: Salamander Tanks open up on the Demons

The far right tactical squad lays claim to the objective


Bottom turn 1: first shot of the game by the Demons, and the Soul Grinder wrecks the Land Raider


Demons make their advance


Top of turn 2: The Multi-Melta fails to take down the Demon

Blood Crushers and Blood Letters close in on the remaining tanks.

This was unfortunate as the Greater Demon advances on the tactical squad.




Top of Turn 3: trying to get the Terminators and Dreadnought in position

Bottom of Turn 3: The inevitable charge

Demons mopping up the survivors.



Top of turn 4: I finally get in some damage to Kenny's Demons and drop the Soul Grinders


Demons lay final claim to the objective






Losing the Land Raider in the first shot really hurt and kept the Terminators out of most of the game.




A pretty decisive game, but fun was still had by all.  Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoyed it. Happy gaming!

  2. Loved this battle report, and I love seeing Next Level Painting on display like this... but I'll admit I was disappointed that the larger sizes weren't loaded so I could scope the fine detail.
