JJ playing, after the initial games with this list I started to understand it and it won me a lot of games. I've been a losing slump for a long time. Decided to try something different and see if works. Connor's advice was extremely helpful.
Wore my VNV Nation hoodie. Effectively spent the day with 40k buddy Shawn. Went to Hub Hobby to pick up a part for my new airbrush and some plasti-card/sheet styrene. Forgot a couple of things I also meant to pick up. Will have to go there again. Oh, no. Woe is me. /back of hand on forehead.
Mission: Purge the Alien. Deployment: Vanguard Strike.
Won roll off and decided to deploy and go second.
Remembered Imotekh's ability and attempted to seize. 2 appears, Eldar go first.
|Top of first. Eldar move cautiously. No wounds are taken due to Wonder-twin powers, Orikan and C'tan Writhing Worldscape. Even with Imotekh's Lord of Storm War Walkers are remove five Scarabs.|
|Top of fourth. Crimson Hunter takes out Cryptek on left side of the field. He doesn't stand back up. Jetbikes remove Cryptek with Imotehk. C'tan takes two wounds.|
|Have to say this was possibly Shawn's worst moment in the game. Everything seemed to go downhill from here for him. Necron Warriors Rapid Fired into three Shining Spears. Only three wounds were done. Fails every save. Shawn was extremely livid.|
|This has been a moment I've been looking forward to for a long time. I'm sure I've had this before. A wave of Canoptek Scarabs fighting the Avater of Khaine.|
|This was the first of several sets of three 1's Shawn rolled. Which did not help his morale or outlook in the game.|
Shawn rolls the die to see if the game ends or six turn appears. 5 and onto turn six.
|Field is looking quite anemic.|
|Bottom of sixth. More Scarabs which move quickly across the board to the two Jetbikes harassing my Warriors. One Jetbike is removed. One squad of Spyders assault Wraithknight. Wraith is finally removed along with Spiritseer. 1 VP Necrons, total 2.|
Shawn rolls the die to see if turn seven happens. 2 game ends. Both sides have Line Breaker 2 VP Eldar, 3 VP Necrons. Counted up the units lost and ...
Win 9-8 Necrons
Connor's suggestion on tactics was a completely different game than what I'm used to playing. Two things I think I can work on is having Imotehk and Cryptek hanging with Warriors instead of standing around the field by themselves. Next would be to maneuver my Canoptek Spyders better. Forgot to run first turn. Would've worked to go up the centre and meet Scarabs when they were done with War Walkers and Dark Reapers.
Connor's suggestion was key to achieve victory. War Walkers and Dark Reapers only had two, not very efficient rounds of shooting. Thus nullifying their effectiveness and ensuring Necrons strength didn't wane too much. Thanks, Connor!
