Defeat at Blue Owl Pass, 31 Jan. 42,914.

 

Well we manage another game of epic today and it was between Necrons and Space Marines, 5000 points per side, any ways a few words from one of the Space marines…..

One of the nice things about Greg’s Friday Epic Armageddon games is that you never know what to expect. As he has many different armies, you can find yourself with a familiar army, or having or facing one you’ve never used before. Makes life interesting

Today, Dan & I(Britt) using Space Marines,  faced Necrons commanded by Greg. This was to prove to be a hard fought battle, going to the 4th turn, and then only won by the Necrons by 1 point. These Necrons are tough little tin men, and certainly gave the Marines a hard time. As most can teleport in to anywhere, Marines were constantly watching their back as well as being denied a clear focus as to where the Necron main blow would fall. Next time we’ll be more prepared, but it still will be a tough brawl.

The game was of 5000 points. This ‘lack of focus’ began to be felt immediately after the Marines set up, as most of the Necrons would teleport on later so there were no immediate enemy units to select for destruction. Still, in combat they seemed not quite as good as Marines. The Marines occupied the central city early on, our Warhounds defeating an enemy war engine there. Both sides drove for the objective markers, and the teleporting Necrons almost captured our Blitz objective. They were finally destroyed, but at great price. Our attacks up through the centre were thrown back rather rudely, and near game end we were having trouble finding units to block holes, even if our casualties were relatively light.

The Space Marine motto soon became “Yes, they’re broken. But we want them all dead!” Reincarnation only applied to some Necron units, but we didn’t know which. Safer to kill ‘em all.The game played out with the usual laughter, spectacular and horrid die rolls, and battle plans going terribly wrong. A good game with good friends. It doesn’t get any better than this!

The game was really a close one since the marines were in front with kills and I also lost the SC in turn one, which didn't help. If it had gone to turn 5, then marines were in front with the activation count, so should have manage to get a win by the end of turn 5. May the dice roll high for you.
