JJ playing, met Shawn at Fantasy Flight for another round with the new Eldar.
Mission: Emperor's Will. Deployment: Dawn of War.
Won roll and decided to deploy and go second.
Attempted to seize initiative, nope. Eldar continue to go first. Night Fight during first turn.
|Love this pic. War Walkers continue hiding from Psyflemen.|
|Bottom of third. Some shooting and Wave Serpents take a few hull points. Purifiers assault the Wraithguard for that moral victory. One is removed thanks to hammerhand.|
|Bottom of fourth. Psyflemen takes out one Wave Serpent the hill. My turns are getting quicker.|
|Top of fifth. Wave Serpent comes down from the hill and removes Purifier with hammer. Fire Prism takes out several other Purifiers. One remains. Last Psyflemen is removed. Jetbikes move to objectives. Shawn has made great use of terrain this game.|
|That Purifier is not backing down. He's standing his ground.|
|Bottom of fifth. Repair Psyhino and don't move.|
Shawn rolls the die and 4 appears. Here we come turn six and more pain.
|Top of sixth. Solo Purifier is removed. Eldar move to focus on last Psyhino with full squad of Purifiers. Terrible luck happens. Psyhino explodes and I lose 6 of 10 Purifiers. Damn. My dice turned cold fast and stayed that way the rest of the game.|
|Bottom of sixth. Three Purifiers remain on the board. Spread them out to avoid nasty templates.|
Time to see if turn seven occurs and pain continues. 1 appears and game ends. Yeah! Not getting tabled.
Loss 9-0 Eldar
Where I went wrong in this game:
Deployment. Spread myself out to far out. Squads couldn't support each other.
Not providing target saturation. This allowed Shawn to decide which part of my army he wanted to pick apart with ease.
Not committing to one task and expecting each Purifier squad to do their own task.
Completely forgetting how I learned to use this army. It is a hammer not several scalpels.
Going to re-read several of my last BatReps to remind myself how I won with this army before.
