Deployment

Necrons seize the initiative.

Battle Round 1 – Necrons

I tried to sneak up on Dan and gun down the Swarmlord early in a failed attempt.

Battle Round 1 – Tyranids

Dan’s hiveguard did serious dmg to my ghost arks even while i activated Quantum Deflection stealers zoomed across the table and charged my ghost arks killing both. Warriors disembarked wondering what happened to their ride.

Battle Round 2 – Necrons

I focused my attention on the Genestealers near my deployment zone and deep striked behind Dan’s Neurothrope warlord as well as the objective i placed behind him aiming to slay the warlord and get the bonus point for this mission. The Deathmarks got slay the warlord with some well placed mortal wounds. I managed to wipe out most of the Genestealers but i wiffed against the Swarmlord for a second time with all doomsday arks and i critically failed to land an 8″ charge with a cp reroll with my Lychguard whom were supposed to handle the hiveguard situation for me and max Gangbusters.

BR_009

Battle Round 2 – Tyranids

They rushed my deployment zone and gunned down my Lychguard unit. Things looked bad for the Necrons.

Battle Round 3 – Necrons

I cleared the Swarmlord finally and dealt with the Genestealers to my left. I opted to let the Deathmarks die in sacrifice to get 1 more vp from holding the bonus objective.

BR010

BR_011

Ultimately losing my engineers early aswell as failing the Lychguard charge was too clutch. I conceded the game on turn 4 i didn’t have the means to continue gaining points he shut down my ability to get any vps from gangbusters (hive guard) and engineers.

Dan had some well executed tactics and while it looked like i had an advantage after slaying his warlord, not being able to tag the Lychguard and losing 2 ghost arks in a turn was a tall mountain to climb.

i called it after top of turn 4. So Dan did not take his turn i was hoping to at least clear my half of the table to fight it out but i failed to kill the Broodlord in my lines….it was going to get ugly. I am sure final score would have Dan with a very commanding lead.
