40k Battle Report - Campaign

I decided to take a road trip to visit my buddy Charles, who has  He made up a campaign that involved his Blood Angels and my Daemons, ending in a massive Apocalypse battle.  Because we played five games I am just going to upload the pictures with captions and the victor of each battle.

Follow the break for rest of the battle report!

Game 1: 500 Points

 There are actually no pictures for this game because I misshapped one of my units during my first wave and only my Herald was on the board who got shot off, so he won on the first turn.  So with a win for the Blood Angels we moved on to the second game.

Victory - Blood Angels

Game 2: 1750 Poitns

In this game the board is divided into 4 sections and he had to roll on a 1-4 he deployed in a specific zone and on a 5-6 he could deploy anywere.

In this game I decided to bring a all Khorne list.

Termies, Stern Guard and Assault Marines

Dread, Predator, and more Assault Marines

Game Ends, with Bloodthirster to car away to do any more damage

Victory: Blood Angels

Game 3: 2250 Points

In this game, the Blood Angels only deploy in one fourth of the table and the Daemons have to roll to see were they deep strike, 4-6 in a specific quarter and 5-6 anywere I want.  Daemons can only win if they kill all the Blood Angels

This game I decided to bring all Tzeentch list.

 Game 4: 2250 Points

In this game, it is a Daemonic invasion, the board is divided into quarters again, but this time there is a portal in the middle that the Daemons can walk on the board from up to 6 inches, and if any Blood Angels go within 6 inches of the portal they are instantly killed.

I kept the same list for this game, while Charles changed it up a bit.

Final Game: Apocalypse 4000 Points +

This game is just a full out brawl with his Blood Angels and Dark Eldar and my Daemons.  But we added a twist! We decided to play Beerhammer, meaning when we finished a beer we could place it on the table, and it counts as impassible terrain that blocks line of sight.

I do not condone any tactics used in this game, as it gets dicey around turn 2 or 3 :D

Every Daemon I own, 4200 points
DE and BA Deployment

In the final game, the Blood Angels won, and pushed the Daemons back to the warp, finally victory and some peace for Blood Angels. 
It was a really fun week end, playing 5 games, and beerhammer was really fun, added a dynamic part to a already fun Apocalypse game, which you can not take seriously anyway.
