JJ typing, After many months finally have another game with Connor. I've said this many times. I'll say it again. Connor is one of my favourite opponents because every game he's teaching me something.
Met at Fantasy Flight. Wore my VNV Nation polo shirt.
Here's Connor list. Its his Adepticon list. As he said. He's doing a ridiculous amount of proxying.
Necron Lord -90
Cryptek w/ voltaic staff (x2) -50
Necron Warriors (x3) -195
Nightscythe (x3) - 300
5 Wraiths (x2) -350
3 Annihilation barges w/ tesla carbine -270
Chaos Sorcerer w/ jump pack, burning brand -105
Heldrake w/ baleflamer -170
3 Obliterators -210
Mission: Crusade. Three objectives. Deployment: Vanguard Strike.
I won roll off decided to deploy and go second. Connor states that this a poor match up. He has four flyers and doesn't think its going to go well.
|The stage of our event.|
|Necron deployment. Rhinos are Annihilation Barges. Terminators are Wraiths.|
|Grey Knights deployment.|
Attempted to seize initiative. Nope. Necrons first.
|Top of first unpictured. Annihilation barges do some shooting. One gets stuck in difficult terrain. Bottom of first. Psyflemen and Vindicare remove all but one annihilation barge. No wounds to wraiths.|
|Top of fifth. It happens. Tabled. Had a damn fun time with Connor. Thanks for the game, buddy.|
Loss. Necrons w/CSM tabled Grey Knights
A really bad part of me wants to show up at FF and find some youth <14 years olde who's playing just so I can go baby seal clubbing for a win with this army. I won't let myself do that. Will continue to take my beatings and hope it comes to something before I change my Grey Knights list.
Thinking I should keep Psyflemen behind aegis because of the 4+ cover save. Have Rhinos infront. Move up. Pop smoke, which I never do. Be aggressive with Purifiers. Hope to remember that plan for next battle.
