|Wraith "Skarbrand, are those your cheerleaders or mine? We'll soon find out."|
Met Shawn at Fantasy Flight. He had a great idea of playing 1500 pts since we are still learning 6th ed and hopefully finish a game.
Wore my CONvergence No Hope mockery of Obama's Hope campaign t-shirt. Been wanting to get it for two years. Saw it at CON this year and it was only 5$. Will have to remember to purchase shirts two years later to get them on the cheap.
I'm really loving Alternative Terrain Set up. I can see this terrain set up not taking very long with players that regularly game together. Perhaps it was time or the desire to get to it so we can finish a game. Shawn and I put together the board in about 4 mins.
Vanguard deployment and Big Guns Never Tire mission. Heavy's and Troops are scoring units. This will help me later. Once again Destroyers and Heavy Destroyer are proxy for Wraiths. Really need to put my new Wraiths together.
Shawn won roll for table halves so he picked upper right corner and placed the first piece of terrain.
Necron Deployment. Put myself at the 12" line from the middle of the Vanguard board. Plan is to make a strong push running everyone for that extra movement toward the two objectives in Daemon deployment zone. Send a squad of Wraiths and the C'tan towards the far objective. Plan to move Scarabs 12 and run each turn. Put the Spyders before them so they can continue to generate Scarabs as the little critters quickly outpace the lumbering factories.

Bottom of second. C'tan charges Daemonettes. Takes out a couple. They answer with one wound to the shard. Necron Warriors are in the foreground. Kept on the other side of the body of the army for safety. Keep some of my scoring units alive as long as possible. Spyders generate Scarabs. 22 total. Another wound on a Spyder. C'tan takes out some Daemonettes. Other squad of Wraiths jump to 10 Pink Horrors and they wiped off the board. First Blood VP, victory point. Necron 1 VP. My Wraiths really like Skarbrands re-rolls
|Bottom of second|
Top of third H2H close up. Blood Crushers come in to help out Skarbrand. Shawn's dice turn on him.
|Top of third H2H|
Top of third. Skarbrand and Blood Crushers are effective in reducing the Wraith threat. Only one Wraith remains. Another Daemon Prince comes into play. Breath of Chaos on rear 5 Necron Warriors. Can only reach one. It goes down. C'tan and Daemonettes continue to exchange blows. C'tan only has one wound left. Serious can't take them anywhere. Reanimation Protocols allow Necron Warrior to stand up. During this turn he says his dice better stop messing around or he's going to start kicking the table. Don't blame him. His dice have gone on strike.

Bottom of third H2H close up. I can't get enough of watching this show in syndication. Honestly, I can't. Will never stop watching it. Folks we have it again. A single Wraith facing Skarbrand. Thank you for the re-rolls. Yes it happened again. The Wraith took Skarbrands last wound again. I'm LOVING this! Slay the Warlord VP to me. Necron 2 VPs.
|Bottom of third H2H|
Bottom of third. Wraiths that took out Horrors are heading over to assist the left flank. Would like them to take out the Flamers and Blood Crushers. Skarbrand if he's still around. Spyders generate more Scarabs. 28 total. Two wounds to Spyders. Damn! They are collecting wounds like nobodies business. Far Spyders are moving to rear objective. Orikan and Warriors are close to an objective. Second unit of Spyders turn around. Scarabs create bubblewrap for Orikan and Warriors. Scarabs will either A) Cluster up and wait for Daemon Prince to attack or B) Charge a Daemon Prince and tear it to pieces. Shawn's dice still don't like him. At this point he is close to calling it because of how poorly his dice are behaving. I empathize. I've been there before several times.
|Bottom of Third.|
Top of fourth. Shawn surprises me. He moves the Blood Letters into combat instead of securing the objective. Then again he does have one Daemonette left from the H2H with C'tan. The shards baleful energies take out 4 of 5 Daemonettes. Nearby Blood Crushers save. Blood Crushers take down last Wraith with assistance from Blood Letters. Daemon Prince takes out five Necron Warriors. Completely forgot Overwatch! Other Daemon prince takes out all but two Warriors with breath. Reanimation Protocols don't save warriors neither does Ever-Living on Orikan. Forgot "Look Out, Sir!" grrr. Slay the Warlord VP to Shawn. Daemons 1 VP. Flamers take out two Wraiths.
|Top of fourth|
Bottom of fourth H2H close up. Daemon Prince does three wounds to the Scarabs. Only has Strength of 5. No Instant Deaths. Yay! One Scarab base removed. 140 attacks, 43 hits, 6 wounds. Daemon Prince misses an Armour Save and Entropic Strike destroys it. Prince takes one wound.
|Bottom of fourth H2H|
Bottom of fourth. Spyders generate more Scarabs. 34 total. More wounds for the Spyders! Three Spyders have two wounds from generating Scarabs. Makes up for all the times I didn't take a wound. Shawn says I can't complain. They way my dice been behaving coupled with how poorly his dice are rolling, he tells me to shut up. It's pretty funny and I agree. Spyders pull back while watching objective. Two warriors are in the arch waiting to jump on an objective. Other Spyder unit has secured their objective. The hard push to the two objectives worked. Now to see if I can hold them. Scarabs go screaming at the far Daemon Prince. Near one is swooping. Wraiths continue moving towards Blood Crushers and Blood Letters. Flamers are on the way. Used Hammer of Wraith on Flamers the crushing assault eliminated the Flamers as a threat. Consolidated 3".
|Bottom of fourth|
Top of fifth. Blood Crusher assault Wraiths. Swooping Daemon Prince lands then jumps back. Breath of Chaos then assaults the back Spyder to little effect. Shawn's dice have all but checked out. Lone Daemonette moves towards far objective. If only I could reach her....
