Met Shawn at Fantasy Flight for a rematch.
Wore my red Permanent Skin Art t-shirt.
I take comfort in two tactical victories. Strategic victories go to Eldar.
Mission: Crusade. Deployment: Vanguard Strike. Won roll off, decided to deploy and go first. Took Culexus out and put in Vindicare. Worked a little bit.
Damn, in a losing streak. 6th game lost in a row.
|Our theatre of losing this evening.|
|Grey Knights deploy.|
Eldar attempt to seize initiative. No such luck. /whew! One of a few things that went right me this evening.
|Close up of H2H, hand-to-hand, bottom of third. 10 Wraithguard, Spirit Seer and Eldrad assault the Purifier line. Completely forgot that psykers are Init 1 against Psyk-out grenades. Something to remember for next time.|
|Bottom of third. When Eldrad or Runes of Warding are on the board it is deadly for Grey Knights to cast psychic powers. Roll 12 or higher and take a perils = Purifier gone. Lost more that way than Eldar assaulting the line.|
|Bottom of fifth. Rangers pop Rhino with Icarus and rifles. Wraithlord takes out some Purifiers. Not one's with hammers though. Avatar assault Vindicare. Assassin takes a wound. Wraithlord takes an autocannon from psyflemen.|
Roll the die to see if we continue to sixth turn. It seemed Shawn was hoping to end the game. Had a sort of tension to him. 3 appears game ends. Eldar Jebike squad is on one objective Eldar 5 VP, Rangers on another objective 8 VP and Jetbike squad in Grey Knights deployment 9 VP. Eldrad is dead 1 VP for Grey Knights /wu-who.
Loss 1-9 Eldar. Connor asked how the game went. Told him loss. Said "I won't blame the dice rolls." Which Connor answer "Yeah you can."
Things I've picked up from the last two games. I need to have my Purifiers out of their Rhinos and on the Aegis first turn. I think that is what has affected by game. Also need to deploy Aegis on the deployment line. Joe X provided a great suggesiotn of kitting Eldrad and friends. Deploy at line and move back when they move up to keep outside of that 12" and delay assault.
