Nights At The Game Table 40K Battle Report: Space Wolves Vs. Salamanders


Todays Batrep features David’s brave Salamanders Vs. Aarons fierce Space Wolves. David is running a very elite list, even by Astartes standards. The  big threat is his Caestus Assault Ram, a massive flyer that can sports a 2+ save and can assault units, even enemy aircraft!  Aarons Space wolf list features not one but two squads of Infiltrators, which project a 12” bubble that prevents deep strikers, and bolters that automatically wound on hit rolls of a 6!


David Villareal’s List

David’s really bringing the pain with Caestus Assault Ram, which is honestly a flying Land Raider in all but name. Packing a payload of missiles and a Magna Melta, there isn’t much that the Caestus cant threaten. If that wasn’t enough there is a squad of Assault Terminators with thunderhammers backed up by librarian in terminator armor waiting inside. Ready to jump out and smash anything they can get into combat with. All of this is backed by a contemptor rocking 2 twin lazcannons as additional fire support.

Aarons Space Wolves are ready to rise to the challenge! By brining two squads of infiltrators he is forcing David to put all his terminators into the Caestus Assault Ram. Making it the perfect target for his Stormhawk Interceptor. Which would leave Davids terminators stranded and forced to footslog up the board. All of this is backed up by the psychic might of Njal Stormcaller himself!
