Im so sorry that it seems to have been over a month since i have posted here. Been super busy with work so haven't had the time to do anything.
Anyways, I had the battle with the Necrons many weeks ago now. Unfortunately I lost, it was a Maelstrom game it came down to my final round of shooting for me to get a draw, sadly from 8 dice not a single one hit when i needed 4's. I could have cried.
This was his deployment.
End of the first turn.
End of the third turn. I managed to take out the Stalker and the other vehicle thing, outlanked a Melta Dominion Squad in an Immolator, this helped loads, needed to remove that Stalker, having BS5 Necrons is nasty. Came in on my second turn and did what they needed to do, unfortunately once it his third turn started he smoked the Immolator and Dominions. He also managed to trash my other Immolator he also trashed one of my my Exorcists too.
Final shot at the end of the game. It came down do that Battle Sister squad in front of the Monolith needing to nuke his Phaeron -think thats what it was- to the right of the Monolith, but i couldn't roll to hit at all.
All in all my deployment cost me the most, since I wasn't expecting him to deploy pretty much in the corner, it meant that the Retribbutors and Exorcist I had deployed on the left hand side after my first turn were largely ineffectual since they couldn't see anything to shoot, so I had to waste pretty much two turns moving them. So having 2/3 of my Heavy hitters absent I just didn't have the fire power needed up against the 7th Ed Necron book, because my god those things are insanely resilient now. I thought my Coven stuff could take a beating but 'Crons now give new meaning to War of Attrition, that and I couldn't make my Faith rolls, i had Laud Hailers, Simlucrums, Priests to get more chances and get my faith off more reliably and often but I couldn't do it, failed them all bar one on a Battle Sister squad.
And here is a photo of my assembly back log.
It's just my 40k stuff, got my 30k stuff sitting on top of my Wardrobe so no pictures I'm afraid. So in that picture we have a Talos, Trueborn -yes im using the Archon model as my Truborn-, I know thats a Venom box but it actually has sprues for plastic Wracks, Gargoyles, and the old DE Battleforce box since i brought my local GW's stock of them once GW stopped doing them, but ive condensed the sprues into a single box, since Ive already assembled the Reavers and Raiders, so that means ive got 20 Warriors and 20 Wyches sitting there and lastly an actual Venom. Won't even bother listing all the stuff I've built but not yet painted.
Oh and just to warn you all, once pre-orders go up this plog will be taking a certain Mechanical path.
