JJ playing, over a year ago when I was struggling with my Grey Knights. Simon suggested for him to use my army to play against me so that I will see where it suffers.
Wore my utilikilt and '11 CONvergence Connie hoodie.
Mission: The Emperor's Will. Deployment: Vanguard Strike.
Each objective is inside enemy deployment. Almost directly across from each other.
|Our table of "discussion."|
I win roll off and decided to go deploy and go second.
|Grey Knight's deployment.|
Try to seize initiative and roll a 5. Grey Knights go first. Now I remember that Imotekh seizes on a 4+, grrrrrrrr! Relearning the vagaries of this army painful bit by painful bit. Night Fight because of the Storm Lord.
|Bottom of first. Spawn Scarabs in far corner. Move Wraiths behind building to avoid more Psyflemen and Psycannon shots. Imotekh's lightning takes down one Psyflemen.|
|Top of fourth. No more lightning. Crowe goes into hiding. Purifiers assault in with halberds and hammers force weaponed. Does a great number on Scarabs. Just over half are removed.|
Top of fifth unpictured. Purifiers do some shooting into Canoptek Sypders. Couple of wounds are spread across two. Four remaining Scarabs are removed due to Purifier weapons.
Asked Connor if he wants to roll, he says doesn't want to. Roll the die. 2 appears game ends. Tie.
|Purifiers on objective 3 VP, total 4. Spyders make Line Breaker. 1 VP Necrons. Always forget about line breaker.|
|Five Necron Warriors at other objective 3 VP, total 4.|
4-4 Necrons to Grey Knights
Out of all the games of 40k I've ever played Connor dropped the most useful piece of tactics on me. Something I've never really considered, may have done a couple of times. Still never thought about it and it makes so much sense.
Connor mentioned that I should've been moving Scarabs up with Spyders running behind them while moving up Wraiths and C'tan so they all assault on the same turn. As he said "Instead I'm fighting your army piece-meal. Shooting at Wraiths and C'tan. Then fighting just Scarabs. They should come in at the same time and force him to split up my firing." That makes so much sense. Now I have get another game in quick so I can do that with it fresh in my mind.
