|I had some issues with the Daemon Prince and Greater Daemon. Never did kill that darn Greater Daemon!|
|Here I made my move. Abbadon was forced to redeploy, as was a CSM squad.|
|The Destroyer Lord and Wraiths failed an unlucky break test earlier - here they're falling back. The 10-strong Necrons are defending the Objective from the CSM in the tank. Immortals are blasting away at 11 O'Clock, taking on another unit of Marines.|
Ultimately, Abbadon and a single Terminator contested the objective the HBU and Overlord were on, but I'd held my objective handily. I won a Major.
|My deployment; I'm playing Blood Angels Drop Pods. On the board were Scouting Baals, a combat-squadded Scouts Squad, and a Dreadnought Librarian.|
|My opponent has three Furiosos in Pods, so the Scarabs are going to be vital to destroying them. I have them behind the lines to farm for a few turns.|
|The Baal Predators set up on a flank...|
|...and scout into the teeth of my HBU 'Cron squad. I blast and assault two almost immediately, then take out the third in Round II. Don't underestimate Gauss!|
|Double-Talon Dreads are scary - you simply can't let them get into a unit or the unit is done. Deep-Striking buys a turn; here, I suffered the shooting then escaped through the Monolith portal.|
|More pods, more shooting. Hit them hard before they can assault!|
|Here's later in the game. Wraiths and Scarabs are destroying more Pods, Dreads, and units.|
|My army moves on the board...|
|...against the Imperial Fists.|
|This turn was decisive. The Mighty Mighty Carlos refused a flank so my army is shifting right, while trying to stay out of range of a sudden attack. I want the Scarabs to lead the way and take out Rhinos, which they do...|
|...like so. This game wasn't so kind to Carlos, who hadn't played Necrons before. Suffice it to say, he didn't realize Scarabs had the range they do.|
|The Veil deposits the HBU for massed firepower. I was careful to stay away from the board edge - I didn't want the Terminators to snag me in an assault!|
|Speaking of... run!|
|The game goes downhill in an uninteresting fashion after that. I desperately wanted to try my hand at assaulting the Terminators, but I risked losing the game to do so. Running away cements the win...|
|...so I ran, earning the Massacre due to the number of Kill Points I earned. This mission was very unkind to the Mighty Mighty Carlos.|
In the end, I earned 2nd place behind the Client Pimp in Question, who played his Grey Knight Space Marines against White Shield Mike's Dark Eldar on Table One to secure the day. I believe he earned two Massacres and a Major to my 1 and 2, but I was happy enough with my performance. I'm absolutely positive I earned the largest ration of Kill Points earned to given, so the day was quite successful.
Fun little event - great store! Comics Asylum in Lawton Oklahoma, if you ever get up that way.
