40K - "A Dirty Secret"

Managed to get a second game in on the weekend, this time with my Harlequins against Dark Angels. Xavier is just starting to play 9th Edition and is coming along to the FOB NZGT, so this was a chance to meet and try out the Maelstrom of War missions.

I offered him the chance to play my Death Guard but Xavier was keen to play the Clowns so I got them out for the first time this year.

In the end it was a very close battle with the Dark Angels prevailing 59-49. The key to their win was the extra cards they got each turn for holding more objectives (Rounds 2-5). 

The Blade Guard incurred no wounds from the charge of the Solitaire, finishing the battle with their full complement. Azreal, however, made the mistake of charging the Troupe Master who fought twice to finish him off. That victory was short-lived with the Clown King being brought down by the Ravenwing.
