I was able to break out the salamanders and let me tell you, it was a good old time. I really like how my list plays out and I really hoping to have this as an all-comers fun list. At the very least it'll be jaw dropping pretty. (refer to my salamanders land speeder a few months back for a taste)
I played two games in a row with the same person, same list, same board. It was my opponents first time playing with blood angels (first time with space marines for that matter) so I know there is a breaking in and learning process. He's a chaos player so its not that bad of a curve but rules like ATSKNF and drop pod assault are totally foreign to chaos players.
The mission is a capture and control, pitched. We set up our markers and go along having a great game and it starts to come down to the wire for objective grab and our board looks like this (Top of Turn 5)
He is pretty content to just claim his one objective and is banking on the game ending. He has a furioso dread that he is moving closer but I know is too far to be of consequence. The top of the turn he shoots at my terminators with the predator. Then on my turn I run over with them and knock a few weapons off and stun it. End of turn five. Game goes on....
Top of turn 6 the terminators finish off the predator. Terminators move closer to Vulkan, Librarian and marine. Librarian moves away from Vulkan to join the terminators. End of turn six. The game goes on...
Librarian gates over to the assault marines and combined with a run move, contest the objective for the win.
I haven't seen gate used at all in our store. I'm a huge fan of it after seeing how much more mobile my terminators are with it. Unlike a land raider its hard to wreck their ride considering the librarian has a 2/3++ AND 2 wounds. Jumping around at will 24" (more with a friendly scatter) is really powerful in an otherwise relatively slow army.
