First game with my (unpainted) Lilith crew vs Ramos. Loss 8-10 due to me focusing to much on growing my nephilims. It would have been sweet though if the tot that grew into a Young would have managed to kill Joss and mature…
My second game with Tara. She is an odd master but I think I like how she plays. My opponent used Ramos and I lost 6-7. Guess I need some more practice with her. ^^
Tabletop Day 2014 was yesterday (2014-04-06), and me and four friends gathered for a day full of boardgames. The games we played were Caverna, Escape, Svea Rike and Carcasonne.
All in all it was awesome. A pity we didn’t have time to play more games.
It was a really good Tabletop day this year. We’ll get to the rest of the games eventually, don’t worry.
For game 4 follow the link.
The mission was kill points with a single objective in the middle. I got to both chose side and the first turn. Not a good position for my opponent.
My Eldar moved up and unloaded every weapon that could get into range. Downing several Raiders and a Ravager.
Without his transports my opponent was forced to castle up. He also managed to poison a Wraithlord to death.
More and more decimated the Dark Eldar tried desperately to get some kills in. My opponent rolled horribly for his lance weapons couldn’t take out my Wave serpents. I disembarked the Dire Avengers to take out a Venom with Trueborns before they could get their aim straight.
The Dire Avengers prompted the Duke and his squad to come forward and they easily killed the Dire Avenger squad. Out in the open they were a to good target to miss so I shoot the squad until only the Duke and one Dark Eldar warrior was left alive and then moved up the Avatar to take them out in close combat.
The game ended with the Avatar getting past the Dukes Shadowfield and slaying him with the Wailing doom. My Farseer, who got to be scoring thanks to his Warlord trait, took the objective and the game was won (20-0).
After five games the tournament was over. I placed 21th of 78 players in the tournament. A good result as I dont play 40k as much any more. My Eldar list, even though it wasn’t optimised (as several other players pointed out), was fun to play. Though I really should take the time to finish the Wraithknight I have been working on the last year and perhaps get a few flyers in the future.
For game 3 follow the link.
The mission was objectives.
Then the Khorne hounds infiltrated.
My first shooting phase killed lots, but not enough.
The dogs killed the War walkers and a Wave serpent.
And the Seeker of Slaanesh star were suddenly scary close.
The Eldar did their best to strike back. One hound squad were killed by guardians and the other was even more decimated by the Warp spiders and the Avatar. The swooping hawks killed a unit of Daemonettes and the Wraithlords took away two hull points from the Soul grinder.
The next turn however the second Wave serpent fell to the last Herald and hound, the Avatar fell in a duel against the Lord of Change and the Farseer was killed by the Seekers of Slaanesh. Both the Swooping hawks and the Dire Avengers fell to Horror magic. The last Wave serpent decimated the last Daemonette squad and my Jetbikes killed the largest part of a Horror squad, making the Daemonplayer short on troops.
With not much left I tried to clear the last three Daemonettes from one objective (failed) and the Wave serpent cleared Horrors from another. The game ended with Daemons in control of two objectives and the eldar close to being swept from the board resulting in a major defeat for the eldar (0-20)
For the game 2 recap follow the link.
Game 3 was built around the old Cleanse mission and we had to hold table quarters.
In the beginning the table looked empty, but carnage was soon to follow. It was night fight but that didn’t stop my opponent from blasting my units and severely harming my guardian squads. Damn those search lights!
The Salamanders deployed by Drop pod. I managed to kill them all but this preventet me from advancing out of my deployment zone, giving my opponent half time victory points for holding the rest of the quarters. Also the Chimeras was killing my models by the score and the Vendettas wounded the Avatar severely. To make matter even worse my Warlord Farseer fell to a Chimeras multilaser.
Having dealt with the Salamanders I started to move out from my deployment quarter. The Chimeras and the Demolisher fell one by one to the fire from my Wraithlords and the two surviving Wave serpents.
Also my Swooping hawks deep striked in and destroyed both the Manticore and the Hydra. The Exarchs Hawk’s Talon and the units Haywire grenades sure came in handy.
When the game ended I held all four quarters and the Imperium was nearly wiped from the table resulting in a 18 - 2 victory for me.
For my game 1 recap follow the link.
My opponent in game 2 played a heavily converted (Mantic) Iron Hands Space Marine army. The Scenario was killpoints.
My deployment was fairly defensive. I was trying to be able to pick the Space Marines apart piece by piece.
My first turn I moved forward and around, trying to flank the Space marines and take out the Thunderfire cannon hiding in the top left corner of the picture. I also killed his Razorback with a Wave serpent, giving me first blood.
After turn three I was in serious trouble. His Centurions killed one Wraithlord and two Stormtalons killed the second one (with some help from the Godhammer Land Raider and Predator Annihilator) and the Warwalkers. He also managed to down one Wave serpent. In return I killed a Scout squad, his Thunderfire cannon and a Rhino. The Thunderfire cannon had previously maimed several of my infantry units.
Having dealt with my fire base he turned his attention towards my flanking units. The Centurions continued the slaughter by killing the Avatar, who so far had managed to hold all my infantry units together.
After I finally realised that I wouldn’t be able to get any more kill points I started to pull back and defend the units that still remained. I managed to kill one of the remaining Stormtalons though.
The game ended with the score 13-7 in my opponents favour.
Deployment. The game started with him moving forward and me lancing the Monolith to pieces with guided Wraithlords.
Necron turn 2 the Night scyte arrives and the Lychguard deploys.
One Eldar shooting phase later all the Lychguards are dead and the characters roll for their reanimation protocolls. the Lord gets back in the fight (with his damned minshackle scarabs).
The Lord and the Wraiths assaults the Avatar in the centre. The Avatar challenges the Lord to avoid the Wraiths untill help can come from the Wraithlords. The Avatar, who cant shake off the Mindshacle scarabs, finally fall after a few turns (loosing about 6 tests). He and the Wraithlords are enough though to hold back and the Lord and the Wraiths and contest the objective the rest of the game.
Fighting on the right flank commences. The Serpents finally manages to down the Ghost Arc and the Swooping hawk and Warp spiders (not shown in the picture slay most of two Necron Warrior units.
Trazyn in his command bargue assaults the Swooping hawks, only managing to kill one. The Barge loses some hull points due to Haywire. The Barge is destroyed by the Warp spiders next turn and Trazyn is only saved from the Eldars wraith by his reanimation protocols.
At the games end the Eldar manages to hold three objectives due to Trazyn contesting the one in the right top corner resulting in a total victory for the Eldar (10-0 match points)
