Your Hobby Place opened its Alexandria Location last year and hosted its first Warhammer: The Horus Heresy Game Day over the weekend. Most of the folks in attendance were from the Thirteenth Legion DMV Chapter that normally hosts its games at Reiters Bookstore in Washington DC.

About 10 people turned up, most playing games of around 2500 points. I was feeling lazy so pulled out my Las Vegas Open list running Alpha Legion in a Headhunter Lethiathal with a bunch of Dreads. This list has a bunch of units with scout and infiltrate, plus the Alpha legion trait that allows up to 3 units to redeploy after rolling for seize the initiative. We used night fighting for the first turn, the sabatuer did his thing and ran up to the land raider containing the other armies death star unit, planted a melta bomb on it, penetrated and immobilized it.

My iron havocs got obliterated pretty quickly, while exodus and the recon marines with nemesis bolters kept the Suzierians and the Praetor buttoned up in side the immobilized land raider for most of the game while the rest of the ultramarine force tried to get rid of Exodus and his recon marines. Some support predators looked like they were going to turn them into red mist until I used the Alpha legion advanced reaction and moved them out of danger.

The dreadnaughts on both sides mostly got torn to shreds, while the Headhunters did work with their banestrike bolters to a variety of ultramarine squads. The game ended with a slight points advantage to the Alpha legion, and was one of the most fun games of Heresy I’ve played so far – it was so close throughout that we never really knew who had the upper hand until the very end.
