Thanks buddy. Hey sorry for the late reply I was hoping the episode would be up. But Brian who edits has been really busy with parental duties. It should be up soon. We are recording the next episode this Sunday so I think this month is gonna be a double-feature. Thanks for listening by the way and hopefully the episode will be up soon!@Everybody-
Hey guys... well I was hoping to come back with a triumphant battle-report... and while I did win my last game... I CHEATED! Well not on purpose... but I included my Striking Scorpions in my army when I didn't pay any points for them! Couldn't believe it... but I was copying and pasting units left and right trying to get my army just right and I must have removed them at some point on accident but simply assumed they were in the list. Huge mistake on my part...
But anyway I did want to give you guys some highlights and insights on the game, because regardless of the Scorpions who only played a minor role in the game (way off in the corner harassing 2x10 manIG infantry squads) ... I played really, really well.
So I played a Ynnari list again and the MVP's were.... my Wraithguard with D-Scythes and my Dark Eldar Wyches!!! Can you believe it? The Wyches and Wraithguard were an incredible combination. Together they wiped out a 50 man Conscript squad, 1x10 infantry squad, a unit of Scions and 2 Special Weapon teams. Using Soulbursts to trigger double-tap with the Wraithguard was obviously awesome... but the movement shenanigans were SO POTENT.
The Wyches were incredibly good and so versatile. They were bouncing all over the place and with their pistols in combat really packed a punch in combat. I'm so impressed with them and can't wait to run them again.
Also the combo of Hornets, Warp Hunter and Dark Eldar Scourges with lances has been awesome. While I only faced a single tank (a Basilisk) and a Valkyrie this time out they aced the Basilisk turn 1... and the freaking Scourges sacked the Valkrie in a single volley and also pounced on an exposed Warlord, pumping 3x Lance shots into him.
Also Illic Nightspear and his Rangers really shined in this game. They took out 3+ characters and also racked up a good amount of wounds on other guys. Those Conscripts (which are amazing BTW) were losing guys in droves from Morale (also affected by the Phanstasm Grenade Launcher from the Wyches) after Illic and his lads took out the IG characters. Incredible!
SOOOOOOO I'm impressed with this combination I took, even with 150+ points I was working with from the Scorpions (who were similarly good this game, I had way better model placement/deployment this game).
I rocked so hard I almost tabled my opponent and he had upwards of 200 models on the board!
So anyway guys... sucks I accidentally included my Scorpions when I shouldn't have, but it was such insight into how Eldar work now. I'm very excited! Anyway guys stay tuned I'll have more bat-reps and hobby stuff soon. Take care guys!
