Monolith, power matrix
Awty Dakkatoof looked down at the long road leading through the valley, nothing was moving. “it’s quiet”, he said, “too quiet”, he paused for a moment thinking that maybe the living metal will be on the other side of that hill, and then yelled “so lets go make some noise” and he gunned the throttle of his bike and with a horrendous “Waaagh” led his army down the road
The battle started with the necrons winning first turn, and after set up immediately set to getting in close to the orks to use their double tap ability from their guass weapons.
As Awty drove down the road he saw movement out of the corner of his eye, “Ambush” he roared and headed towards the nearest thing he saw.
Everything in the necron army moved to get into double tap range, one monolith moving 12 landed in a crater and got immobilized. At the lead the monolith shot at the bikers and the lead battle wagon, failing to penetrate the battle wagon and getting 6 hits on the bikers who saved them all. The lead unit of destroyers fired on the bike and caused 5 wound of which 4 were saved.
The other monolith shot the green baron, the rear battle wagon 3 trucks and the rockit trakk. Failed to wound the baron, The mek with KFF saved most of the glances and penetrates except for one truck and the rockit track. The truck careened into the battle wagon and the explosion killed 4 boys. A squad of 20 necron opened up on the rockit trakk and glanced it to death. Another necron squad opened up on the dismounted boys and even with the 5+ cover save they all died. Another squad fired at the truck with the ard boys and got through the KFF and caused the truck to crunch, then another squad opened up on the dismounted boys and killed 2. The destroyer necron lord with scarabs assaulted the lead battle wagon and got it to explode, killing of 2 of his own swarms and 2 more ard boys, the mega nobs got out unscathed and passed their LD and were standing in front of the destroyer necron lord
The orks having been woke up swung into action, the bikes went after the lead destroyers, the boss peeling off to go after the monolith, The rear battle wagon swung around and got into position to let the burnas do their work, the truck of blue shirts jumped out of their truck on a crater edge to get ready to assault, the other trucks moved from the right to the left, the green baron and the scorcha moved to the scarab swarms. The mega nobs moved to make sure they were close enough to the destroyer lord to get into combat. The death roller had hit the second monolith and it failed its skimmer roll and was immobilized, the flame template reached out and covered the necron squad and had 120 hits that turned into 64 wound and the necrons saved all but 17 of them.
The bikers dakka gunned the destroyers knocking down 3 of them, the green baron got a stunned on the monolith and the scorcha killed off 2 bases of scarabs. The flash gitz rolling an ap2 killed off 2 more bases, and the boom gun hit and killed the last of the flamer victims squad. AWTY charged the immobile monolith and killed it, the nobs charged the destroyers and wiped them out, as there was no unit close enough the destroyers would not be back. The blue shirts charged a unit of necrons won the combat and the unit passed its LD. The ard boys charged the unit with the foot lord and were massacred, the needing a 4 to stay in combat but rolling an 11 the nob used his boss pole to cause a wound on the last ard boy who failed his armor save then I rolled a 12, then for the sweep escape rolled a 1 and the necron player rolled a 5. The mega nobs killed off the scarab swarms and the destroyer lord for no wounds in return. Since the destroyer lord was out of range of the res-orb he was permanently dead.
End of turn 1 Necrons 5, Orks 4
AWTY yelled for the army to get stuck in, there was entirely too much shooting going on. He watched as most of the junked necrons pulled themselves together and stood back up.
Necron destroyers moved to get a clear shot at the mega nobs, the rest of the necron squads moved to try to surround the blue shirt squad. The monolith tried to teleport the embattled squad out of combat and found that they were out of range so the blue shirts were spared a shooty death. The necron monolith shot the battle wagon with the burna boys and immobilized it, and the necron lord and his squad shot the rear of the burna battle wagon and destroyed it. The burna boys got unscathed and hid on the far side of the wagon to avoid a large squad and to stay out of assault range. The consolidated large squad fired at the flamers but since there were only 2 sticking out of the end they got a 4+ cover save and so only 4 died to guass shooting. Another necron squad shot the empty truck and got a crunch result. The destroyer squad caused 5 wounds and one mega nob failed to make his save. The only combat with the blue shirts ends up with the orks winning again and the necrons making their LD again.
The burna boys moved out of cover and into a semi circle around the necron lord and his unit, the mega nobs turn and head towards the other side of the road, the bikes move towards the destroyers and so did the scorcha, the green baron stayed just out of range of the monoliths weapons and the red pants boys get out of their truck to assault the unit behind the lords unit. The flash gitz finally weigh in with a roll of ap3 and drop 7 in the lords squad, the flamers burn down 11 more of the same unit, the scorcha hit the destroyers and dropped two the bikers dakka gunned the rest and they too were all the way dead as there were no more destroyers nearby. The green baron of course missed and the boom gun got 5 with its template. The burnas assaulted the lord and his one warrior, the red shirts assault the other unit of necrons, the blue shirts again win their fight 3 to 1 and the necrons finally fail their LD and were swept. The red pants win their combat but the necron squad rolls snake eyes and stay. The burna boys lose one boy and kill the necron lord and his one warrior consolidating towards the BW for the cover save.
End of turn 2 Necrons 6, Orks 9
“We got them where we want them boys, get em!” Shouted AWTY as he gunned his bike towards the large squad of necrons that were standing up and moving together.
The necron lord failed his WBB and so the orb left play, causing the unit that got swept to stay down. All the rest of the necrons stood and joined other squads leaving one squad of 43 and a squad of 13 and one immobile monolith.
The large squad moved towards the center of the ork traffic jam and opened up on the burna boys. A little pay back, 68 hits, 29 wounds and the burna boys were so much sawdust. The monolith killed a truck with its whip, and its 6 hits on the last battle wagon were saved by the KFF. The combat went poorly for the necron squad and the red pants won the fight thanks to the nob killing 3 and the small squad got swept.
The mega nobs continued to move towards the large pack of necrons, the blue shirts, and the red pants moved to within 1 inch of the necron squad, the bikers moved into position and the scorcha and green baron moved towards the monolith. The green baron missed the monolith again, and the bikers dakka gunned the large squad killing 4, he removed 4 warriors between the mega nobs and the squad. The flash gitz killed another 4 and again he removed the casualties away from the mega nobs. Seeing that the mega nobs were barely in charge range now I declared that I was going to waagh and then run the mega nobs, rolling a 1. Then when it came time for the charge rolled a 2, blocking most of the biker nobs from getting into combat. The red pants charged the blue shirts charged and AWTY and 1 nob made it to contact the rest were blocked by mega nobs so they just moved to maintain coherency.
The combat went well between the two squads of boys killing 6, the necrons swung back and killed 4, then the two nobs and AWY swung in with power klaws and killed off 7 more, of course he did not get snake eyes and were swept causing the rest to phase out.
End of turn 3 Necrons 8, Orks 10. Necrons phased out, Orks win.
AWTY looked around the field and saw a few bits and pieces of the metal warriors laying around, the meks were already scavenging, he knew that if these warriors kept disappearing like that he would have a heck of a time getting all that living metal for the big meks to make a living stompa. Oh well he had lots of time, nothing better to do, and he was already here. Time to get krumping.
