Deep Strike Mishaps can Change the Game!

I was at my Local GW on Tuesday, playing a 1000 point game with a buddy of mine.

Chaos (Mixed Legions) vs. Chaos (NURGLE!!!) That's me! :D

Seize Ground, and Spearhead style

Our 2 bases were in opposite corners of each other.

I get first turn, but pass it to him.

(Plan: hold my objective tightly, Possessed w/ Sorcerer to bait and pull him towards my end of the table. Then 3 Oblits come down hard and close to his objective and rip his tac. Squad up.

Deployment: He deploys everything, 4 bikes up front along with a Dreadnought. A tactical squad in back corner, and a tac. squad w/ Fabius Bile in the middle of the clustered Deployment.

My deployment: 5 Possessed with Sorcerer deployed at the top of my Spearhead, Hidden in a Building. 2 Plague Marine squads in reserve, along with a Rhino, and 3 Oblits in Deep Strike.

First turn:
He advances his bikes 24" up, dead center of the board. Dread moves up 6" Fabius Bile and Tac. Squad move in to flank. The other tac. squad stays on his objective. He can't shoot anything because he can't see my single unit.

My first turn: Possessed w/ Sorcerer jump-pack out of there building to be face to face with the Bikers. Sorcerer uses 'wind of chaos' to take out 2 bikes. That's when the group charges in to take out the other 2 bikes like that. Consalidation 4 inches into a Crater.

Turn 2: He advances everything except for the objective holders. I get rapid fired by a Tac. squad and Fabius. and he takes out 2 Possessed. Dreadnought fires Lascannon and takes out 1 Possessed. Dread Charges the remaining group and wipes out the possessed and 1 wound on my Sorcerer.

My turn 2: Evrything comes in except for oblits (that's the plan). Plague Marines and Rhino sit on Objective. (Hes never going to get my objective) Sorcerer and Dread, still in combat.

Turn 3:
He pushes the Fabius group in cover. Dread and Sorcerer still in combat. his other tac. squad not movin'.

My turn 3: I spank the Dread and glance it to death. 4 Glance rolls!!! Consolidate towards Fabius. Plague Marines sit on Objective.

Turn 4:
He Pushes Fabius's group up and Rapid Fires my Sorcerer. He kills him.

My turn 4: Oblits Come in! I place them in a RISKY spot. (trying to pull a Fritz Deep Strike :D )
Direct hit or mishap...the roll!......Scatter. After that I think to myself what an idiot!!! I had a Ton of open space in Front of his Squad. But I got greedy and went for the close spot. I roll the Mishap die....he gets to place my anywhere he wants. Of corse he places me far Enough away to not even get in a lascannon shot. (48" if your wondering). I am a IDIOT!

Turn 5: He shoots my oblits wiht fabius and his possy. 1 wound inflicted. He charges me, and does nothing.I attack back and wipe out 1/3 of the squad.

My turn Five: I wipe out the rest of the squad and bring fabius down to 1 wound. He Attacks back and kill an oblit.

Game ends Turn 6....Tie game

I FOR SURE would have won if I didn't get Greedy with the Deep Strike.

Lesson of the day: be safe with Deep Strikes or you'll THROW AWAY THE GAME!
