JJ playing, finally after many weeks, time to put down my Purifiers again. Had a great day hanging out with just Shawn. Getting to know someone personally with one-on-one time is one my genuine pleasures. We hit an all you can eat sushi place in Roseville, MN Kyoto. Their yellowtail sashimi was the best thing on the menu. Akira, in Woodbury, MN, is much better. Doubt I'll be going back to Kyoto anytime soon.
Wore my VNV Nation Faith Power Glory workman shirt.
|Our scene of murder Sat evening.|
Shawn asked if I was interested in trying a mission out of the Eldar Altar of War ebook. Said yeah. Rolled the die and Shadow Screen is the mission.
|Grey Knights deploy|
Shawn wins roll to go first. Mission doesn't allow seize initiative.
|Bottom of second. Grey Knights move to close range on regrouping Eldar. Fire prism and viper are removed due to Grey Knight shooting. Psyhinos begin their slow trek across the board to the Eldar objective.|
This turn Connor says to me "I want to start micro-managing Shawn." I laugh and say that is funny.
|Bottom of third. More slow moving psyhinos across the board. Grey Knight shooting stuns Falcon. Falcon spirit stones don't negate the stun effect. Hull point on Viper. Starting to take my Purifiers to the fight.|
Connor mentions he doesn't want the Grey Knights to win, he wants Eldar to win. After seeing Connor biting his tongue from wanting to micro-manage Shawn I tell Shawn what he said the turn before. Shawn then wants to hear Connor's thoughts. Connor provides some info of what to do this and next turn.
|Bottom of fourth. Jetbikes that took out solo-purifier are removed. Falcon also.|
|Close up of top of fifth. Fire dragons get out and slag Crowe's psyhino. Wave Serpent shoots at Crowe. Iron Halo fails him Bright lance removes Crowe. Slay the Warlord 1 VP Eldar, total 2.|
|Bottom of fifth. Some amazing range from Psyflemen, they are able to shoot at jetbikes. Bikes make all their saves.|
Shawn rolls the die to see if games goes into sixth turn. 2 comes up, game ends. Purifiers in Eldar deployment 1 VP Line Breaker.
Win 8-5 Grey Knights
Couple of things from this game was that Connor reminded me that psyhino's can go faster than 6" when he asked me "why are you moving them 6"? Psyhinos should've been at the Eldar objective and causing more of a stir in the Eldar deployment far sooner. Have to remember to shoot with vindicare. Over extended myself by pulling too many combat squads off an objective. That could've been a problem and tied the game if jetbikes would've taken out two Purifiers on the left objective. Closest combat squad could not have made it back to objective in time to secure the win.
