Killpoints! My opponent Neil was playing his Dark Eldar army... which was just awesome! I couldn't have enjoyed this game more, since I don't get to play the Dark Kin that much now that my nemesis Evil Homer has moved to Mecca.
|We've both got a loaded vehicle still. I had tried to get my unpainted Hunters into cover, but they'll end up the target of Neil's mobile Wyches.|
Regardless, my Scouts will weather the storm of shooting next turn - making 6 or 7 4+ cover saves, then go to town on the rest of the backfield! One Ravager will limp off.
|We're back to the center scrum. My Hunters are holding up well, though the unit on the right is falling back. My Lone Wolf has successfully held up one Wych squad for most of the game, though eventually he falls... earning me a Kill Point!|
|...and this seems to have offended Neil! He pops his Haemonculus out and blast them with the Casket of Flensing, killing them all! That's a bunch of flensed skulls with quivering brains for the Dark Kin to enjoy!|
This was my favorite game of the day, and certainly the one I had the most chance of losing. (I was to play the Card Pimp in Question at top table for Round III... but though there were a few nervous moments his Nids were fighting an uphill battle against this list.) Being the first round, there were a few mistakes in play...
...but I think Neil would agree the largest was his forgetting the Wolf Scouts! He mentioned that a few times, so he was probably kicking himself. I mention it only so you, the discerning reader, would understand it was just one of those pure mistakes that sometimes happen when you play unfamiliar players. This dude was a veteran player and great fun to boot.
