Apologies for the long wait (it's almost been a whole month..), but we're finally back with the 7th battle of the ongoing campaign: Glimpse into the Golden Age. My opponent, Rob (Grimzilla on the forum), had apparently taken some crap before the battle about the list he was using. His previous list was something along the lines of 2 necron fliers and 3 annihilation barges, but today he was going to try a new list. His new list consisted mainly of a unit of 7 necron lords. The rest of the list was filled up with 2 mandatory warrior units and a C'Tan. The unit of 7 lords was something he was curious to try. A unit like that is so hard that it has the ability to kill virtualy every unit it comes into contact with. The question of course, is whether it will be able to kill enough of those units to earn their points back.
I myself am using the new chaos dex for the first time. I made the list in a hurry and all I could say about it at that poin that I was kind of dissapointed that the daemon prince and defilers got more expensive. I also didn't like that my cheap and effective daemon weapon option for the lord was gone.
|After turn 1: My daemon prince is trying to distract the lord unit while my rhino unit and defiler go for the (comparetively) squishy C'Tan and warriors.|
|Turn 3: Rhino unit with lord kills the warrior units and makes contact with the C'Tan. Epic combat between chaos lord with murder sword and C'Tan begins.|
|C'Tan kills chaos lord. Defiler is not amused.|
|This fine tactic is called my 'lets grab this objective but keep just out of range of those necron lords'-maneuvre.|
Oh well, at least nobody can say that we didn't see it coming.
Hopefully this won't be the last campaign batrep, but if you've been following along, just letting you know it might be. I've had a lot of fun and the goal we had in mind in the first place (getting experience with 6th ed) has been accomplished pretty nicely. I'm going to try and keep the blog posts coming though. I'm slowly but steadily finishing my raptors as well as reading the new chaos codex, so I might blog some stuff about that in the near future and until then...
Death to the False Emperor!
