A Brief Overview of Game 1 at Stronghold 2012!
In my 1st Game I faced Black Templars, never played them with my Grey Knights, and I have only met them on the battlefield once before.
The list my opponent used is shown below:
So there you have it, the forces of my enemy... from the outset I was relatively confident about this one... how wrong it would prove to be!
As the pictures below show this was a tense game, with it swinging from one side to another. We had 7 Turns in total, and this is the first time I recall a Dreadknight surviving to the end of the game at this points size.
The Emporers Champion killed one, only to charge and die to another in the following turn. With 5 Interceptors at I6 against 1 Terminator... I somehow didnt cause a wound and managed to be broken... the Black Templar vow forcing him to Charge me after trying to herd me towards the table edge... a close game!
All in all one of the most enjoyable and nail biting games I have been involved in for a while!

|1st Turn Movement again!|
|Closing on the Enemy!|
|Curses... the Emporers Champion Kills a Dreadknight, while the Interceptors are Charged & Broken by Terminators!|
|The Landraider advances on my Objective, However my Second Dreadknight Slew the Emporers Champion!|
|The Presence of my Dreadknight Drew the Landraider away from my Objective!|
|Having cleared the back Corner, the Dreadknight pursued the remaining troop choice, but the Landraider moved in one of my Objectives!|
|Despited being broken twice, the Lone Psycannon Strike Marine rallied both times (which is expected lol) and claimed the 1 Objective I needed for Victory! These were my Survivors|
