The game is based on 1750 pts, and my opponent is somewhat an interesting fellow for playing the way he did. My Dark Eldar list is shown below;
We rolled for the mission, and we gotten Annihilation (bummer for me and for him, but more to my side). The deployment is Spearhead, which offers an interesting conundrum on my part and his as well. The way the terrain is set up when we played on it is unnaturally skewed so the roll for who goes first is vital. We both rolled, and thank the gods, I managed to get the higher dice roll number, and I opted to go first. In more ways than one, the choice for my table quarter is quite obvious and I deployed appropriately.
Hug the wallls!
He on the other hand, is now out in the open, but then since he is a Necron player with two ressurection orbs, he just used the good o' fodder technique to deploy his forces. He tried to seize the initiative, but he failed to do so. Thus, with that my round begins.
While then, my vehicles decided to try and lance and poison some of those Immortals to death.
During my shooting phase, I managed to slaughter the first Necron Warrior squad down, and I managed to weaken the Immortals (slightly). My Wyches with the Archon charged into the warriors and managed to suffer no casualties. However his warriors stood their ground like a boss, and we went on chopping each other even more.
Seeing that it is now or never, I moved everything to take their chances against the Immortals, and went all out with the Immortals. Despite me being able to kill a number of the immortals in the shooting phase, the most important thing is the fact that I need to lock them down ASAP. With that I locked my Wyches and some Warriors with the Immortals and managed to kill a few more immortals and managed to get the count of the entire Necron army to phase out. But now it is all up to the dice rolls for his WWB.
He needs to make 11 WBB rolls to allow him to continue on, and as he rolled there are a whole lot of 4+s, but then he paused. I was wondering what is going on before he said that he failed one WBB, which in the end means that he is Phasing out. With that both myself and my opponent shake hands and called it a good game.
Results and Afterthought
Vespera never felt a near-death experience like this before. The hopelessness that comes with it, the suffering in her soul.....this is the things she is supposed to inflict upon others, not to herself. She cursed under her breath for her weakness....
Dark Eldar: 9
The game is quite a close one for me, as I lost enough KP to actually hand him the game unless I wipe him out to a man. His initial deployment of the Destroyers is a smart move on his part, and those things inflicted some damage upon my army, and combined it with some Immortals in Gangstaland shooting and I got a few vehicles suffering 'Black Hawk Down syndrome'.
One of the main mistakes I think I have done is essentially just coming into his range, and that almost killed me. But nonetheless the Wyches managed to pull the win out for me, despite suffering a ridiculous number of retaliatory shots.
In my opinion, I think he did pretty well with his oddball list, but at that last turn, I believed that he should have countercharged me somehow. It could have done him a whole lot as with my wyches gone, he could withstand the firepower of my list.
