Storm Speeder Down!

Storm Speeder Down! - Red Scorpions

Played against my roommate last night and his roles were awesome! He played the usual 22nd Vostroyan and took turn 1. By the end of his turn his mortars and Master of Ordinance had killed my thunderfire cannon 3 scout snipers and my land speeder storm. He tabled me so fast it was a fun game but devastating.

3 Games of Escalation Force League

My Scout Snipers were well worth their points, killing not only a Terminator and a Tactical Marine but also ended up delivering the killing shots to the Librarian.

Red Scorpions vs Eldar - Loss
The game against the Eldar was a massive defeat, my opponent ran all jet bikes and shining spears. They were able to kill my thunderfire cannon and my Techmarine along with 10 other scouts right off the bat. Infact I wasn't really able to get any wounds on him until the legion of the damned showed up, while they killed a few it was futile with how many shots were fired at me, thus ending in a sad defeat for my Red Scorpions.
Red Scorpions vs 22nd Vostroyan Rifles - Draw
My roommate and I played our first Escalation League game against each other, me as the Red Scorpions and him as my 22nd Vostroyans. It was a pretty good slug fest between my speeder and snipers and his mortars. In the end we each held one objective point and had both contested the center point.
Red Scorpions vs Space Marines - Draw
This game was very small due to the 500pt limit. But incredibly bloody lasting 7 turns and killing almost every model on each others team. But my scouts were able to hold a point with their weapon destroyed land speeder storm by the last turn and since we both held one we called it a night after much blood shed.

Red Scorpions vs. Nurgle

Red Scorpions vs. Nurlge - Draw

I played 2 games in our Escalation League tonight at Mind Games. The first was against a friend playing his Nurgle army. My snipers were very worth their points and did alot of damage including imobilizing both Nurgle rhinos. Then my Techmarine was able to wipe out one squad in hand to hand along with my devastator squad. The game was objectice based and ended on turn 7 in a draw with each of us holding one objective.

The Red Scorpions
1x5 Scout Squad
1x6 Scout Sniper Squad
Land Speeder Storm
1x10 Devastator Squad

Red Scorpions vs. Nurgle - Draw

The next game was against a younger kid in the store. He played his Nurgle including 2 Obliterators but to no extent. By turn 5 we each help one objective in yet another objective scenario and since the store closed in 5 min we called it a draw for adding points to our faction sides within the Escalation League.

First Game of 2010 - The Red Scorpions

Red Scorpions vs. Guard - Loss

The local store Mind Games is running a 500 pt escalation league that will progress to a final point value of around 2k at the end of the year. I played tonight with my Red Scorpions, using the standard Space Marine Codex. I played against a guard player in an annihilation scenario. Sadly the final score was 2-0 Guard.
The 5 turn game played out with the Red Scorpions killing 99% of each of his squads but not after he had taken down my Land Speeder Storm and Company Captain Aineas which gave him 2 points. I am not sure how other places run it but Mind Games runs the points so if you kill one complete unit you get a point. Since I killed all three of his veteran squads minus the sergeants which had gone to ground in ruins, I was not able to secure any points.
