I expected more raep. Especially since this was the hardest mission in the game?

Capitol sounds like it could be a really nice looking map though.

Nope. The hardest one is yet to come :M

Prepare to be disappointed. The city is, I think, actually of lesser size than that hueg one in mission 8. Although it has more fortresses and spires and stuff.

Mission XIX - Brood City

row2719.jpg


*suspense*

row2720.jpg


Here's the map.

row2722.jpg


To the right of the city is this comm relay.

row2724.jpg


And here's the magnificent capital of Davinuus. It could have used a little more splendour or size, though. *shrug*

row2727.jpg


Some enemy dudes.

row2728.jpg


Our bros.

row2729.jpg


And an overview of the enemy turn.

row2733.jpg


Some clusterfuck. We do our stuff first, then the Tyranids attack (the enemy arrow going out of nowhere is a bunch of gargoyles).

row2737.jpg


The farseer first uses an eldritch storm to prevent the leman russ from counterattacking, then the assault terminators move in for the kill. Did I mention that assault terminators are absolute beasts? They have 6/5 more defence/attack than our striking scorpion exarch, not to mention the armour piercing. Only drawback is their low movement and mediocre initiative, but who the fuck needs that when you can instakill a fucking panzer battalion? Although still, the lack of exarch abilities and squad composure instead of single entity does make them a little more squishy, despite the higher defence.

row2744.jpg


Did I mention exarch abilities? Battle fortune saves the Dire Avenger one more time :salute:

row2745.jpg


Retribution!

row2748.jpg


Some more filthy enemies at the objective.

row2754.jpg


lol gargoyles.

row2755.jpg


row2771.jpg


row2772.jpg


The farseer casts eldritch storm again, so the terminators don't get shredded by the carnifex.

row2777.jpg


More enemies spotted at the comm station.

row2778.jpg


Mopping up.

row2785.jpg


Holy shit, that's a lot of 'em. Also, something new above the land raider:

row2786.jpg


A hive tyrant. Pretty much the meanest motherfucker the Tyranid can throw at us. Its hardened carapace grants it excellent defence, the venom cannon has a high range and does high damage, it's also fairly able in melee. Additionally, it retains all psyker powers of the Zoanthrope and Magus, but also gets 'Catalyst', which gives +3 defence and attack to a unit and all adjacent to it. Abilities are Heroic, Leader and Terrifying. A truly fearsome beast, it can pretty much raep (or at least match) everything we send against it in one vs one combat.

Trying to go through the mountain and moat to the city will most likely get us killed

row2784.jpg


So let's try going around, to the west. We'll have to take care of those blokes first.

row2789.jpg


Meanwhile, this squad (+offscreen swooping hawk) will capture the comm station, and then head north, attacking the capital from the east.

row2794.jpg


Lololo doom.

row2795.jpg


row2803.jpg


Those bubbles (?) are the Catalyst ability.

row2804.jpg


Venom warriors are serious against squishy Sororitas.

row2806.jpg


Meanwhile, battle fortune saves a Dire Avenger's life once again. Incredible.

row2816.jpg


Bye, venom warriors.

row2817.jpg


The last enemies that stop us from crossing the river and starting the siege.

row2823.jpg


Almost all of them are dispatched in a single turn (only the missile team manages to postpone its demise)

row2832.jpg


Bye, zoanthrope.

Hawk checks the station...

row2833.jpg


OH MY GOD, BUT WHAT ARTIFACT IS IT?! *drumroll*

row2834.jpg


(any kill result into a wound)
The conversion field is a pretty nifty device, especially against lethal stuff, such as Biovores or just about anything with the Venom Sacs upgrade.

row2835.jpg


The hawk goes ahead and spots sum silly tyranid

row2838.jpg


The crossing goes rather smoothly

row2839.jpg


And we can get another good view of the enemy's forces inside the city. This will require caution, as there's a shitload of them here.

row2840.jpg


Hey, carnifexes can cross rivers without movement penalties. Must be the 'walker' movement type. Whatev', I'm surprised the SoB squad wasn't turned into minced meat. The beast dies next turn.

row2843.jpg


Our western doodz form a steel wall and begin their advance.

row2844.jpg


Oh my, a wild autocannon appears.

row2845.jpg


And dies :thumbsup:

row2846.jpg


MOTHERFUCKER.

This is, actually, double the luck, as great harlequins *don't* get exarch superpowers, which means it's not battle fortune that just saved it. I would rage a lot if we lost two scouts in two consecutive missions.

row2848.jpg


Oh, hey, another autocannon.

row2851.jpg


The land raider is taken care of.

row2853.jpg


Here, I feared the terminators were done for, but, fortunately, they are tough bastards, and some sucky genestealers are not enough to bring them down just like that.

row2854.jpg


These tyranid are done for.

row2864.jpg


Some good ol' clusterfuck.

row2870.jpg


The scorpion was left at 5 hp after killing the venom warriors, so I preferred to restore it to full health, given the multitude of hostiles in the region.

row2871.jpg


Turned out it wasn't that necessary, but who knows how the AI would have reacted should matters be different.

row2874.jpg


row2884.jpg


The farseer casts an eldritch storm, so as to not get pulverised by the tyrant. Terminators and fire dragon move in to attack, but it survives with 2 hp. No matter.

row2889.jpg


No idea how a 4 hp leman russ managed to score 2 wounds on the dark reaper, but whatev.

row2890.jpg


WHAT THE FUCK THE FUCKING CARNIFEX WAS BEYOND ITS MOVEMENT RANGE FOR FUCK'S SAKE

1222402066138.png


This is a classic example of the game trolling me. The carnifex has a movement range of 3 hexes, and if you look at the previous screen, you can clearly see that there are at least 4 hexes between it and the Dark Reaper. But there is a road hidden beneath the city, giving everything a movement boost. Fuckshitbitch, I fucking hate losing great and rare units. We salute you, Dark Reaper Exarch, casualty number 12 :salute:

row2891.jpg


All enemies are taken down.

row2903.jpg


And the whirlwind suicides.

row2904.jpg


Let's see what the city has to offer.

row2905.jpg


row2906.jpg


What the messages don't say, is that we also freed a level 8 assault terminator squad.

row2907.jpg


Victoly!

row2908.jpg


Avatar ascending, huh? :smug: :smug: :smug:

row2909.jpg


And here's the new unit. Think of the wraithlord as, basically, a wraithguard exarch. A single entity warmachine with 2 range and distortion, able in both ranged and melee, better attack and defence than a wraithguard.

I suppose we don't need the second terminator squad we just got, so we can get another unit in its place. Shall I get a wraithlord? :M


Stay tuned, for in the next update, we shall awaken the Bloody-Handed God :M

Mission XX - Avatar Ascending

row2910.jpg


row2911.jpg


The lovely barren map.

row2913.jpg


row2915.jpg


So many damn hive nodes I can't fit all locations' descriptions in one screen.

row2920.jpg


And in the centre is this temple.

row2921.jpg


Landing zone is, as always, hot.

row2922.jpg


First is just a simple lictor.

row2924.jpg


But then comes clusterfuck.

The lictors and gargoyles are done for.

row2937.jpg


Genestealers die in the next turn while trying to attack the farseer. Suckers.

row2944.jpg


The swooping hawk flies off after the fleeing land raider (the fucking thing refuses to die)

row2948.jpg


row2959.jpg


Lol biowhores.

row2960.jpg


Fuck.

FUCK

FUCK!!!! THERE'S A FUCKING WARRIOR SQUAD RIGHT NEXT TO THE HAWK

row2961.jpg


Good gravy, that was a really fucking close call. Battle Fortune, I salute you once again, this game would have been so much more racist without you :salute:

row2964.jpg


Whole damn fucking lot of warriors approaching from the north-east.

row2968.jpg


Bye hormagaunts.

row2969.jpg


row2978.jpg


The off-screen arrow is a bunch of lictors.

row2983.jpg


row2985.jpg


All bastards are eliminated.

row2997.jpg


There will be much rape to be had. Much, much rape.

row3000.jpg


row3002.jpg


row3003.jpg


Right, so I'll try to spread the combat over everything in sight, so as to not get focus fired by a mob of full-strength tyranid warriors: the fire dragons strike first, drawing the support fire of one of the venom warriors. The immolator attacks the zoanthrope, provoking more support fire. Finally, the dire avenger whacks down the zoanthrope.

row3006.jpg


This fire dragon suffers heavy wounds, so I bail him out with insane courage.

row3009.jpg


The death jester gets rather raepd and has to run. As you can see, the immolator is barely at half hp. I didn't expect the venom warriors to ravage it that much, they don't have anti-armour qualities, after all.

row3013.jpg


The fucking land raider still refuses to die, even after unleashing p. much everything we have against it. Whirlwind suicides during its next turn.

row3019.jpg


The leman russ suicides against the fire dragon. The 6 fucking tyranid warriors inflict 4 wounds upon the wraithlord.

row3024.jpg


And yeah... there goes the immolator.

row3025.jpg


:rage:

I really like the fucking immolator, fuck :x Salute to you, casualty number 13 :salute:

row3027.jpg


The terminators kill the tyranid warriors, wraithlord moves in their place and fires upon other warriors, also providing enough place for the SoB squad to attack. The warriors are finally taken down by a fire dragon.

row3035.jpg


And finally the fucking land raider dies

row3036.jpg


Meanwhile... I completely carelessly put the wraithlord behind the terminators, right into the range of venom warriors because I forgot how fucking fragile level 0 dudes are.

:rage: :rage: :rage:

A promising wraithlord has fallen in a disaster that would be easily avoided. He would have stomped many an enemy of the Eldar if we got him to proper levels. Salute, casualty number 14 :salute:

row3040.jpg


The wraithlord is avenged soon after. This detachment will head north and flank the hive pods, while the rest of our bros go through the mountains.

row3041.jpg


The tyranid pods are heavily guarded.

row3043.jpg


row3044.jpg


Nothing was found in this farmhouse.

row3046.jpg


Moppin' up

row3055.jpg


More tyranid warmachines.

row3059.jpg


The insolent leman russ is quickly taken care of.

row3063.jpg


Silly carnifex tries to charge, but gets surprised by invisible scorpion exarch. Fortunately, this time the ambush ends better than last time when it got our scorpion killed... :x

row3068.jpg


This concludes the carnifex.

row3069.jpg


Another look upon the objective.

row3070.jpg


oshi-

row3071.jpg


Fuck. FUCK. FUCKING FUCKITY FUCK

row3072.jpg


Fucking squad-based fucking terminators getting fucking exploded by everything, FFS :x

Good that we got another assault squad waiting in the barracks after last mission. :salute: casualty number 15.

row3073.jpg


We exact great vengeance upon the foul xenos (offscreen arrow are seraphim), killing almost all of them.

row3083.jpg


Oh great, a hive tyrant.

row3084.jpg


Land raider suicides.

row3088.jpg


The cavalry finally arrives to the northeast. A little too fucking late, but I actually wanted to wait for them at the mountain pass, however the tanks forced me to attack quickly.

row3094.jpg


We can start capturing the pods.

row3098.jpg


Then the farseer moves into the shrine:

row3102.jpg


Khaela Mensha Khaine has answered our prayers! But he still thinks we're faggots and his avatar will not be joining us during this mission after all.

row3105.jpg


We keep capturing the pods.

row3106.jpg


Die, venom warriors.

row3107.jpg


Strength 10 hit!!!11 That might have hurt a guardian squad or something, but not a friggin dire avenger.

row3108.jpg


lololo

row3109.jpg


WHAT IN THE SHIT.

Those warriors are actually pretty fucking deadly when they are well-entrenched and aided by Tyranid psyker powers.

row3113.jpg


Still, it has to give in to peer pressure.

row3115.jpg


The farseer casts a powerful shiteldritch storm upon the tyrant

row3122.jpg


But it still takes two turns of continuous attacks to bring it down.

row3123.jpg


row3124.jpg


And after capturing the last hive node, we are victorious!

row3125.jpg


row3126.jpg


row3127.jpg


Right, we got a generous boost to our population cap. We now miss a total of 5 squads... who shall we take? You can see the whole population of the barracks on two above screens. They are as follows: level 0 guardians, maxed missile team, maxed space marines, lvl 9 assault terminators, lvl 9 terminator devastators, level 6 scatter laser and vibro cannon, lvl 10 vypers, level 1 warwalker and a lvl 9 warlock master.

I suggest taking the assault termies to replace the fallen ones from the past mission. Rest is as you see fit, you can also recruit new units if you wish, but keep the wraithlord in mind...

row3128.jpg


And here's the artifact we found in the temple. The blood chalice I immediately give to the fire prism, as it's an excellent tool for fast-levelling, and the fire prism is still barely level 4 or so.


That is all. Stay tuned, for next time we'll be de-worming the swamps. Also, at the start of the next mission we'll be handed command of the Avatar :M

Get the Vyper and another wraithlord and also the terminator assaulters. Remaining two slots... Space marines and the warlock I guess.

Mission XXI - Shadow of the Kraken

row3129.jpg


row3130.jpg


Here's the map. As you can see, navigating through its multitude of rivers and swamps will be a bitch.

row3132.jpg


Ick.

row3135.jpg


Most curious.

row3137.jpg


Here are our bros, among them the brosiest of them all.

row3138.jpg


The avatar. Pretty much the ultimate unit in the game, with the highest defence and melee attack. It can tackle hive tyrants head on, can survive massive assault from everything the enemy can throw at it. Counts as a Leader, Heroic and Terrifying. However, in each mission it counts as a mission-critical unit, so it's imperative to not let it rush headfirst into whole mobs of Tyranids because, as the unit's description says, 'even a lion can be brought down by jackals'.

row3139.jpg


We start by smacking hormagaunts around. It's important to remember to let the wraithlord finish off all enemies. Since almost everything we face now is level 10, it gets +100xp (+1 level) with each kill thanks to the chalice of khaine. Neat, no?

row3153.jpg


row3165.jpg


Lol gargoyles.

row3170.jpg


row3171.jpg


row3176.jpg


Right, so after attacking with the great harlequin, I noticed this mob here. Really close to the harlequin, too. Decided I'm not taking any chances, used insane courage and pulled it back.

row3181.jpg


Here you can see this mission's most annoying part. The gargoyles. Every turn, there comes a whole truckload of them

row3182.jpg


row3192.jpg


row3204.jpg


And they come one after the other. If you see a screenshot of a unit surrounded/attacked by gargoyles, chances are, it has been already attacked 4 times this turn.

row3205.jpg


row3206.jpg


Those bastards need dispersing.

row3213.jpg


row3223.jpg


The swooping hawk takes a heavy beating.

row3225.jpg


So does the seraphim...

row3226.jpg


row3231.jpg


row3237.jpg


row3239.jpg


And yeah, here's a good example that bad stuff can happen to the avatar, too. Bad stuff like genestealers. They are insanely powerful in this game.

row3242.jpg


row3244.jpg


Friggin gargoyles, should have focused fire them all to eliminate as many squads as possible, instead of targeting many to weaken more of them. They just keep running away very far to the north, rest and come back.

row3245.jpg


row3250.jpg


row3251.jpg


row3252.jpg


Uh...

row3253.jpg


ffffff...

row3254.jpg


FFFFFFFFFFFFFF...

row3255.jpg


UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

row3256.jpg


There goes the vyper squad. It probably wouldn't have happened if the useless shits didn't suffer a morale failure. Casualty number 16 :salute:

Did I mention how much I hated gargoyles in this mission? Because now it's personal. PURGE THE ALIEN :x

row3257.jpg


The fire prism takes down one gargoyle without moving and can fire again thanks to the warmachine class's inherent 'overrun' ability.

row3264.jpg


Meanwhile, the wraithlord gets another level :M

row3267.jpg


row3268.jpg


Hmmm, I hoped the harlequin would have movement left to bail out. But it didn't and now is right next to genestealers.

... :salute:

row3271.jpg


But instead of the harlequin's death, we face the scatter laser's because it would appear the land raider's movement type ignores shallow water's movement penalty to some degree, so it managed to get close enough to fire upon it. The artillery's pathetic 6 points of defence couldn't withstand the twin lascannons. Farewell, casualty number 17 :salute:

row3279.jpg


The invisibility must have kicked in and saved the harlequin, I guess, as the genestealer went for the scorpion exarch (although in theory it also should be invisible...). Battle fortune once again saves the day :salute:

row3281.jpg


The genestealers are eliminated next turn.

row3282.jpg


Then gargoyles follow.

row3287.jpg


row3292.jpg


Lotsa. Including a hive tyrant, of course.

row3293.jpg


row3294.jpg


FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

row3295.jpg


Okay, fortunately nothing else was in the area to attack the prism. Actually, I got a flashback at this moment, as I remembered that I lost a fire prism in the same place in the very same way as it could have happened now last time I played. Darth Roxor is not a learning animal.

row3303.jpg


row3305.jpg


The terminators are p. good at cleansing gargoyles.

row3312.jpg


row3316.jpg


P. cool thing about units with walker movement (wraithlord and avatar) is that they can cross rivers without needing to stop.

row3324.jpg


row3327.jpg


row3331.jpg


This concludes the artillery.

row3332.jpg


This was an incredibly stupid decision to put seraphim in the vicinity of Biowhores just to attack a fleeing land raider.

row3336.jpg


oshi-

row3337.jpg


Real fucking close one. Losing the seraphim would be an incredibly big blow to our war effort.

row3339.jpg


The seraphim are evac'd while everything else mops up.

row3343.jpg


row3354.jpg


Wraithguard :thumbsup:

row3356.jpg


row3357.jpg


Right, both fronts are pretty much clear at this point.

row3362.jpg


It takes the terminators 12 turns to get from the west to this east secret mound.

row3363.jpg


row3364.jpg


Fuck yes, this is an extremely useful thing to have. I wonder whether I should let terminators keep it or give it to the seraphim, although their imperial scanners make them great scouts.

row3365.jpg


Now the only thing that's left is securing those pods.

row3374.jpg


Bye bye, hive tyrant.

row3375.jpg


Victoly!

row3376.jpg


Welcome to hell. The next scenario is very much the hardest in the whole game.

row3379.jpg


As you can see in this here map, we start at the red dot, in a gigantic crater that fucks up movement in a most spectacular way. We have to attempt to get out (yellow arrows), breaking the tyranid swarm, advancing from all sides (blue arrows).

We head out to the barracks...

row3377.jpg


Curiously enough, we don't have to get any new units, despite the 2 casualties of the previous mission. Our army pop cap has also been decreased from 21 to 20. Faggots :rpgcodex:

row3378.jpg


The warlock master finally attains the rank of farseer.

Also, the wraithlord is now level 9. It got 900 xp in a single mission :thumbsup: Next unit that gets the chalice is the fire prism, as it's still level 5 or 6.


Stay tuned, for next mission will bring rape. In wagons. Ultimate doom expansion for Kwanzania, enrichment train departing, all aboard :M

Huh? I really didn't update this in two weeks? Well, who would have thought, r00fles!

Mission XXII - Desolation

row3380.jpg


row3381.jpg


This nuked scenario is our today's map

Going clockwise from the top left corner:

row3383.jpg


row3385.jpg


row3387.jpg


This one looks p. cool.

row3390.jpg


row3394.jpg


row3396.jpg


row3397.jpg


And thanks to simultaneous defensive deep strikes, our forces are in the very centre of the crater.

row3399.jpg


As you can see, we are surrounded by all kinds of filth.

row3403.jpg


row3408.jpg


row3412.jpg


The hawk is heavily damaged.

row3413.jpg


row3417.jpg


row3421.jpg


Some venom warrior mop up

row3422.jpg


row3423.jpg


The amount of gargoyles here might not be as retardedly high as in the previous mission, but it's still annoying. Also, sending wraithguard after squishy targets and watching them almost instakill is p. hilarious :thumbsup:

row3433.jpg


Oh my.

row3435.jpg


row3438.jpg


More venom warriors meet their doom.

row3442.jpg


row3453.jpg


row3454.jpg


row3456.jpg


row3459.jpg


A quick offence in this map is pretty imperative, so that you eliminate those masses of warriors while their movement is heavily impaired in the hills. Otherwise, you get swarmed by overwhelming numbers of xenos keen on biting your arse off.

row3468.jpg


row3472.jpg


The fire prism gets the kill on the lictor, and regains all its hp thanks to the chalice of Khaine. Also, since it didn't move before the kill, it gets an additional action thanks to being a warmachine and fries the biowhores.

row3481.jpg


row3483.jpg


row3487.jpg


row3489.jpg


The seraphim fly off to the south to cover our rear from sneaky faggots trying to cap our dropships.

row3490.jpg


bernhardt.png
Men, just slaughter. Let none of them escape.

Thank you for your invaluable tactical insight, Commander Bernhardt.

row3498.jpg


row3504.jpg


Holy shit, that was close.

Wait, what, the carnifex attacks the seraphim, that's not supposed to be possible.

The beast has a Bio Plasma Attack upgrade, which means it can now use ranged attacks. Which doesn't really help it at all, since its ranged attack value is a total of 7, which wouldn't do shit even to artillery.

The farseer smites the gargoyles and the swooping hawk is free to rest.

Seraphim bring down the carnifex and move to new prey.

Moppin' up.

The fire dragon was down to 3 wounds after attacking the land raider, and given the regular and venom warriors next to it, I preferred to use the panic button, just in case.

row3519.jpg


And it might have been a good idea, as the warriors hit the dire avenger for 3 wounds, and the avenger has like 10 more defence than a dragon.

The leman russ exploded 10 of the terminators. Goddamn non-single entities.

row3521.jpg


However, Wraithguard don't get exploded too much. I is confuse

row3525.jpg


Terminators with the armour piercing Krak Grenades are really bitchin' now :M

Wham!

row3541.jpg


row3548.jpg


The farseer casts another eldritch storm, making the land raider effectively helpless.

row3554.jpg


Seraphim keep bugging a magus.

row3555.jpg


row3562.jpg


The magus managed to run away and rest, so, now joined by the swooping hawk, our aerial forces pester sum lictors.

row3567.jpg


The harlequin begins its tour of the countryside, first finding nothing in this town.

row3569.jpg


Then we smack this whirlwind and check the fortress.

row3571.jpg


Oh noes!1

row3574.jpg


Those fucking warriors sure are motherfuckers.

row3576.jpg


Regardless, we still kill the lictors.

row3577.jpg


Our bulk of troops begins its pilgrimage south.

row3578.jpg


The harlequin finds nothing in this village either.

row3581.jpg


Well, fuck. Good that the magus was dumb and decided to use some useless powers, instead of finishing off the near-dead hawk.

row3584.jpg


Taking those fuckers down will take some time...

row3586.jpg


At least the magus hit the dirt.

row3587.jpg


Last stand of the Tyranid forces.

row3590.jpg


row3597.jpg


The grunts are eliminated and the death jester checks the fragment of the spire.

row3602.jpg


row3606.jpg


Cool

row3604.jpg


Now, let's get rid of this monstrosity.

row3609.jpg


The Avatar rips the hive tyrant's guts out with the Wailing Doom.

row3611.jpg


Those shitheads finally die, too.

row3614.jpg


We liberate the last part of the exploded artifact

row3615.jpg


And win!

Interesting, I thought this mission would be a lot harder, or at least that's how I remembered it. I must be getting better at this, I guess :M

row3616.jpg


The briefing for this mission is p. cool. The Farseer is very enraged when he speaks the second paragraph.

'A great beast, a MONSTROUS! HIIIIVE tyrant, calling forth retribution fromtheverySTARS!!!'

Anyways, we don't even have to inspect the barracks, as we didn't get/lose any units, and our army pop cap didn't get increased either.


Stay tuned, for next mission we'll get our third farseer, proceed with utmost raep, and head for... THE GRAND FINALE! :M

(that is, the finale is after this mission, so the next update won't be the last one)
