The Game Set-Up
|The Necrons appeared en masse on the eastern edge, between the Libradiisomn Relay-Stat (Milepost 620) and the Doyland Farm "SA" building.|
|Scouts infiltrated into the ATM transmitter. They began to try to target the Necrontyr warlord, but couldn't connect on a head-shot.|
|Combat Squad Alpha sprinted into the Dictator's Podium lower level.|
|When the Honor Guard fell, Plasma Team Green advanced with Lieutenant Thad Allen and Combat Squad Beta close behind. They had been holding this objective, and now took it as their chance to lay down a fusillade at close range.|
|Combat Squad Alpha seized on an opportunity to leave the confines of their shelter. They immediately began to take fire.|
|Combat Squad Alpha withers as it continues to secure the artifact.|
|Every available marine moves in to point-blank range in a suicidal ploy to stop the Necrons from advancing toward the artifacts.|
|At the end of the game Thad Allen stood alone, facing the oncoming wave of metallic bodies. |
I've never had this happen to me before, where I won in victory points, did not destroy a single unit of my opponent, and was tabled. Because of the lord he chose and the resurrection barge (or whatever that giant ribbed thing is) his warriors kept coming back turn after turn. At the end of the game there were only 2 necron warriors from his army that were casualties!
A strange, but fun, game.
