|This is one of the few hollow victories I had. Can you guess the number of Assault shots the Culexus Assassin had toward Eldrad and friends?|
Grabbed a bite to eat with Shawn before the game. Heard some great stories about CON of the Norths tournament that I slept through.
As Shawn said on closing the game this is my first time using them and need to get more familiar with them. Far cry from the first time I used Grey Knights against Daemons. First game against Shawn was supposed to be Grey Knights vs Daemons. It's ok. Will get a game against his daemons eventually. In the meantime cannot become attached an outcome.
Wore my VNV Nation polo-shirt.
Mission: Purge the Alien. Shawn debated going with Emperor's Will. Which is a mission I have yet to play yet. Went with the die roll. Deployment: Dawn of War.
|Our stage to place and remove models.|
Won the roll off. Decided to deploy and go first. Perhaps beat Eldar to that whole alpha-strike thing.
|Grey Knights deployment with ADL (Aegis Defense Line). This line was damned helpful. Now to paint it.|
|Eldar deployment. Eldar ADL an Icarus Lascannon with his. Don't find that an useful gun emplacement.|
Shawn attempts to seize initiative. Rolls a 6. He's good to go. This is going to be fun. Nope, Eldar alpha-strike.
|Bottom of first. Battery of Psyflemen take down a Wraithlord. So far so good.|
|Top of second. Aegis Defense Line is extremely helpful with cover saves. Will have to paint mine up. Eldar Jetbikes arrive do some shooting and one Purifier is removed. Other shooting brings a combat squad down to 3.|
|Top of third. Eldar continue their movement inwards from the right flank. Eventually the Wraithguard are going to be within shooting range. Eldar shooting are slowly taking Purifiers away. It's going to get ugly soon.|
Top of fourth [unpictured]. War Walkers with Scatter Lasers remove yet another combat squad of Purifiers from the field. Next time have to get the Psyflemen on those guys. Eldar take out all but one Purifier combat squad. It's looking ugly. Tabling is on the menu.
|Bottom of the fourth. Pulling back Psyflemen buying themselves time from Eldrad, Warlock and four Wraithguard. Good news that squad is finally waning. Bad news. Not soon enough.|
|Bottom of fifth. This is where the game ends. If it went on I could see a tabling occurring. Removed one Wraithguard. Love that Eldar Fortune. Have a counter for it next time.|
Lost 11-5. Really should've been tabled or damned near it. It wasn't looking good.
Already made my first change to this list. Next time Eldrad is dead.
