JJ playing, Met Shawn at Fantasy Flight last Sat. Wore my CONvergence Connie hoodie.
|Shawn's Yriel list.|
Mission: The Emperor's Will. Deployment: Hamer and Anvil. Both objectives are in terrain. GK middle terrain with stones. EL about 1:30 position from GK objective.
|Our stage of fun this afternoon.|
Won roll off and decided to deploy and go first.
|Grey Knights deploy.|
Shawn attempts seize. Nope.
|Shawn rolls some amazing saves. He never, well rarely ever, rolls this well. Shawn says I should take a pic. Responded with "Was going to!"|
|Bottom of fourth. Shawn pulls his Eldar-Flat-Out move again. Wave Serpent comes in hot to dump off Asurman with Dire Avengers. One Purifier on far side of board is removed due to Fire Prism shooting.|
Roll to see if game goes on. 4 rears its head. Turn six here we come.
|Bottom of sixth. No wounds to Dire Avengers from Psyfleman. Far Rhino is safe from shooting. This is where I forgot to move middle Rhino towards Ranges on objective terrain.|
Roll a die to see if turn seven arrives. 6 appears. Onto the last turn of the game.
|Top of seventh. No Dire Avengers removed from Psyfleman.|
|Walker attmpts to deny Dire Avengers from Grey Knights objective. Ya, right!|
|Rangers on Eldar objective.|
Lose 8-1 Eldar
What Shawn thought would be a loss turned into a win.
Things I learned:
*Spent too many resources at the wrong Ranger squad. Should've focused on the Rangers in objective terrain in the Eldar deployment. Something to do next time.
*Spent too much energy moving backwards into my deployment. Should've kept moving forward and standing ground on my objective.
*Would've been better to keep shooting at Dire Avengers on objective because of twin-linked psyautocannons. More likely chance of removing them. Though Asurman is Fearless with Eternal Warrior. Not scoring once all Dire Avengers are dead. hmmm
