[images and txt]first time for buddy: Dark Angels vs Necrons


Recommended Posts

Hello there. This is a small battle report with some images to introduce someone who is completely new to wargames and Warhammer 40k.

MANY rules have been cut out to let the newcomer enjoy the game in a simple way, the game is inspired by Recruit Editions. 

 

Lists are:

 

DARK ANGELS

 

Librarian in Terminator Armor

5 x Deathwing Terminators (1 Thunder Hammer, 1 Cyclone Missle Launcher, Sarge with Power sword)

7 x Intercessor Squad (Sarge with Chainsword)

 

NECRONS

 

Overlord

10 x Necron Warriors

5 x Immortals

3 x Skorpeth Destroyers +1 Plasmacyte

1 x Canoptek Scarab Swarm

 

Both lists are 465 points simply because I didn't have enough Necrons to reach 500. Terrain was set up pretty qucikly and without thinking too much, we only had 2 hours. 

 

Objective was simple: In 5 turns destroy the enemy. If the opponent remains with some models on the table, the winner is the one who destroyed more units / models.

 

The newcomer chooses Dark Angels to play.

 

LET US BEGIN! 

 

+++ TRANSMISSION # 7897690843345598 | VOX IMPERIALIS | PRIORITY: MAXIMUM +++

 

The emergency arrived seven parsecs ago via imperial astropate with the request for immediate help: the presence of Xeno contaminates the main mining megastructures.

The mining world Lemnos supplies an important quantity of raw materials to the imperial forces of instance in the Orar system, Gothic sector, for each solar cycle. From the readable data Necron activity is suspected at an exponential rate resulting in sub-sector economic disaster.

TURN 1

 

Necrons start first since they win iniative roll. Warriors fire and wound 1 intercessors, Immortals fire and wound 1 Terminator, the rest advance, only Scarabs charge with a roll of 11! They manage to get in close combat with Terminators, resulting in a sad charge with the death of 2 scarab models. Fortunately 1 renimates! They did their job: Terminators cannot fire.

Dark Angels fire with intercessors killing 2 Necron Warriors, Terminators destroy the remaining Scarabs while the help of Librarian, which uses Trephination on them. Also, he uses Smite on Destroyers resulting in only 1 Mortal Wound.

TURN 2

 

Necrons move, their fire is completely against Terminators since they are now free from melee combat. They fire poorly, even the Overlord fails his Tacbgon Arrow! Fortunately the Skorpeth Destroyers charge and buffed by the Plasmacyte they REAP Terminators with their incredible Glaives! They retaliate, helped by Librarian who heroically enters the scuffle! The Overlord is unable to charge, waiting patiently for his turn...

 

Sadly for him the Dark Angels retaliate! Intercessors kill 3 Warriors but 2 Reanimates, meanwhile the Librarian Smites the Overlord (3 Wounds!) and helps Terminators with Trephination. Fight phase is intense, with Terminators and Destroyers killing each other, ultimately the Librarian uses his stuff and gives an hard blow to the filthy Xenos! Only a Destroyers Remians.

Turn 3 sees Necron Immortals and Warriors move, shooting and killing one Intercessor and wounding another. The last Destroyer attacks and kills the Terminator Sergeant, but the Librarian finishes his job! Overlord failed again to charge the Librarian with a double roll of 1! Immediately Dark Angels take the advantage: The Librarian falls back and with an incredible roll of 10 Smites the Overlord which dies! Meanwhile the Intercessors can shoot at the Destroyer which fails his reanimation protocol. The tides of battle are in favor of the Imperium!

In Turn 4 Necrons are desperate, they fire everything they have against Intercessors killing three of them. The Librarian fails his Smite, and Trephination helps the Intercessors to kill some Warriors.

 

Turn 5 sees the remaining Xeno forces charging the Intercessors in which nothing happens, while the Librarian suffered two wounds and decides to Smite Immortals, move and try to charge Warriors but fails.

The battle ends with Necrons scoring 360 points and Dark Angels 354 which are the total points of models killed in action! Close one!    

Sadly for the forces of Imperium the Xenos took over the planet, their Awakening complete...and humanity's darkest day is yet to come...
