GENERAL INTRODUCTION

Welcome all to our first 40k Tactical Exercise Without Table.

IN this TEWT you will be required to provide the "best chance for victory" solution for the tactical situation show below.

Solutions are to be PM'ed to me prior to 23:59Z (GMT/UTC) 1st August. All solutions will then be posted for comment and critique to determine the best solution.

Keep you assessments brief, dot points are best. Add in rule references for anything that is a bit odd, Page numbers etc make it MUCH easier for other readers to understand your rationale.

Also try to add in your expected reaction from the enemy player.

All diagrams are not correctly to scale but they are in proportion to an extent. You will be able to more or less determine ranges and Lines of Sight from the diagrams "within reason"; we won't be doing any "he's an 1/8 of an Inch out of range" crap

Post any questions you might have in this thread. In general I will only post an answer if it is something that cannot be determined from the information provided or something that only appears obvious in my strange little world.

If someone asks a question and you have the same question as them, post as well, if enough ppl ask then I'll provide a bit more info.

Remember too this is new ground, a work in progress and the process will no doubt grow as we go.

TEWT #1 - Dark Eldar vs Grey Knights

Situation
It is currently Turn 5. Grey Knights had first turn.
Night Fight is in effect.

Combat Drugs Roll was a 3.
Both sides have lost 1 unit per turn each turn of the game.
The only remaining forces are those in the diagram. There are no remaining reserves.
All units are equipped with standard wargear unless noted otherwise on the diagram.
All Ruins are ground floor only.
All Dark Eldar units that have killed Grey Knight units have themselves been eliminated.
The Grotesques started the game with an Haemonculus (Ancient) who was killed in the CC that caused them to fall back.

Mission
The Relic.

Exercise requirement
Detail the Grey Knights actions to create the best possible chance of victory.
Be sure to include the expected respective Victory Point Totals at game end.

FINAL RESULTS

I've made some notes on a few things, mainly to do with rules. Very keen what others have to say.

The idea Scoze is to divine the answers to questions like that for the situation as presented and factor that into the solution.

Guess you'll need to address that in your solution.

So be it, next question and it is a very important one. Which DE units have tokens and how many do they have.


Edit: As the player of the game both my first question and this one would be known by the GK player BTW.

Ah yes forgot to add :

Combat Drugs Roll was a 3.

All Dark Eldar units that have killed Grey Knight units have themselves been eliminated.

The Grotesques started the game with an Haemonculus (Ancient) who was killed in the CC that caused them to fall back.

That's great fellas, there are some very astute assessments in all that.

Just as a thought when I post the solutions should I do it one at a time so we can examine each or do it all in one "blob" post and then you guys can address all of them at once?

Here I was thinking that you would (for lack of a better word) grade them somehow as being most likely to succeed to least likely to succeed and present them back to us for discussion.

Nah, who am I to say what is right and wrong? I will make some comments on each when I post for sure, particularity with rules items but the overall assessment of who's is the best is very much up to the discussion.

Excellent. In that case I would say that the number of entries should dictate the presentation. If there's a lot out there, do it one by one. If there's 3 or 4 options that come up just post those ones in a group.

EDIT: How long are you accepting submissions?

I'd say post them one at a time. When lots of things to discuss get posted at once people tend to focus on a few of them and neglect the rest. If you post them one at a time, then they'll all get discussed.
