Ah it was about time I answered the questions and other stuff righ
Hello again ladies and gentleman today it's answer time and the end of the battle report (kinda).
Didn't really have any time for hobby this week so I did not push the avengers further that's why there is nothign on that front either Answers
Hey man, thanks for idea, they do indeed await a wash, and that red migh be a good solution. So far I have been using bloodletter glaze or fuegan orange. Might give a shot to your red. I do intend to do a very light dry bruishing with some yellow-ish orange for some higlight effect
So yeah, thanks for the tips. @dog_of_war
Excellent question regarding the exarch and so far I have no answer. I was thinking maybe a reverse color for the gun, compared to the basic guy's, an other option would be celestia grey like I used for the sword of the other one
Luck was it... Dice are rarely ever in my favor, but if we concider the overall game I can say my opponnent had more or less the same absurdly bad luck as I did. So it was rather stable. The thing ois that this edition compared to 6th and 7th were I most played, eldar were so absurdly strong even with tactical mistake I could pull thing out of my hat, It does not work anymore, defently, so I'm getting way more punished than I was before. Well to be fair, my dice were fairly worst than usual for the key target, the rest was fine.
Glad you dropped by and it's cool you are digging the Avenger aswell, I never hoped neither thought they woould turn out so great in the end. @Cavalier
Cav!! Great you like it as well, I'm really really happy at how they turned out
Two crimson hunter right, maybe, one thing that could have helped would have been if my fire prism saw it but I did not so I was stuck with rather low fire power, but still for a 1500 pts game I do think I had quite the anti tank already. Oh well I shall see in other games^^
Small rules thingy, lightning fast reflexes only work for unit with the fly key word do they not ? I don't think you can use it on reapers. Well I'm gonna see later how things go.
You would love to help if you could... that my friend I might have an idea for later
I do think your insigh could be really help full. You will have an idea about what I'm talking about next week, or late sunday (france time). @Looshkin
Glad you dropped by aswell
I was kinda thinking it could work out but as you say, terific result compared to what I had in mind aswell. The blue helm was really random at first, I was thinking what color can I use to push the light blue of the armor up and will contrast nicely with the orange "hair". Well blue is complementary, let's give it a shot I thought. and now with a guy nearly finished it's absurd how well everything mesh together !
Neutral base, I use the basing from GW the kinda greyish one. so I think it's gonna be great ! @Dread
Honestly I thought it would make for to much red, but it's because I was thinking lazy, the black sight and mlagasine, make ALL the difference. So Dread, I never thought you would lead me astray, BUT WHAT AN INSIGHT that was for these guy's.
Ahaha well there are some people in the world that the dice god do not favor. We just happen to be part of that crew. A shame for 40k games but it still is fun, especially when your opponent is just as much in that group as you. The end is coming, hopefully it will entertain you just as much.
Gosh It took SOOOOO FREAKIN LONG FOR ME TO ANSWER TO ALL THOSE MESSAGES ! I'm nearly to lazy to conider finishing the bat rep but I said I would do it so let's do it ^^GAME TIME (finaly)
Turn 3 so me not so happy with the way the game was proceding. I tried yet again to blast that damned imperial knight, I shuffled my tanks around a bit, Try to get the fire prism away from his enclave it was traped in but I was never supposed to go very well with how I let myself to be caught earlyer, stranded in that corner it had no chance. I zoomed my vyper on obj 5 at the power plant because I had to cpa it. They fired a bit at the veteran in the ruine killing a few. The falcon moved to get a line of sight on the damned enemy. The crimson zoomed out of this place trying to get a postion of visibility on the two hidden tank behind the building, while keeping line of sigh on the knight in case it needed to take some shots at it. Result. Fired eveything at this damned thing again failing to kill it again, between insane save throwes and me rolling ones even with guide and doom, it was trully depressing, most of all I tried to kill his commander so I jinx his armor save, but because I could not kill the knight I was stuck not being able to shoot at it. My avenger did wipe the command squad with some support from the support batterie. Giving me a victory points from card.
I had one more intresting thing planed aswell. Since I had the charge something objective card, I just charged the knight with everything that could, being my farseer, my warlock and my avenger squad. Owerwatch saw one avenger die. then every one got in combat. now that I think about it I should have charged the veteran squad with the prism aswell.
The combat resulted in my farseer wiffing totally, then the knight killing my warlcok with the counter attack stragtagem. and my dire avenger did nothing. Point wise I did bridge the gap with a 3 on my D3 rooll for charging ^^.
His turn 3 was more sucessfull. he scored a bit more point for killing things and killing a character. The knight disengaged and with the commander leman russ blew my falcon up. the lone dire avenger left barely survived I don't know how he did it. One support weapon took some damamge, The fire prism blew up aswell. My vyper were left alone.
The farseer got killed during the cc phase by the knight charging.
My opponent completly caught up in point thanks to the assassinate card and other objective he completed.
end of turn 3
Huuuum turn 4 was not really the most intresting turn for me and it was the most wiffed turn ever ! Yet It was also the most epic turn ever.
So I just picked assasinate, his comander is in the middle of nowhere and don't have anything to cover for her. So I zoomed my really hurt crimson hunter begging for it to do something, same for the lone surviving avenger, I jumped him toward that commander. Result to show? NOTHING ! the crimson wiffed 3 of his shot the only shot he manage to hit/ wound (yes it failled to wound with on brigh lance agains imperial human, even with a command reroll, double 1!!!!). AND THE LAST SHOT YOU ASK? Imperial armor saved the day. Invul sav boosted by going to the ground, resulting in a 4 plus that he passed thanks to a command reroll. the Dire avenger did manage to inflict one wound thought I'm proud of that exarch! the vyper killed one squad of veteran with morale on the other side of the board.
The knight being still in the way, witht the support battery I shot a bit of everything without accompluishing anything. Knight is on 2 wounds now if you want to know ><.
his turn 4 saw one of the most comic situation of the game, his unarmed valyrie shot everything it had in my avenger. It survived with one hp. it was just such a laught I though he was safe but not even 23 sec later he dies to the nearly dead other valkirye from some random missile shot from a tiny space inbeetween two buildings. The knight decided to wipe my support weapons, well, it did, uninpended. Still It lost one wound to the overwatch lol. My crimson hunter died early to the leman russ firing everyhting into it.
Turn 5 !!
Well turn five rince and repeat ><
At this point I had nothing left to hope for. the game was lost but for the fun of it I played it. The vyper aided with one support weapon wasted the other veteran squad. And the last support weapon tried to kill the knoight again, without success.
This is during his movement phase.
His turn 5 saw him cleaning the last support weapon, one of them with the chainsword for the heck of it, god was it fun to imagine.
We threw the dice and the game ended on that. If i recall correctly the end score was 9 for the eldar to 12 for the imperial guards.
As a final fun extra turn I threw my vyper to fire at the knight and he was finally killed
. But it was out of the game time so it does not count
This game was defenitly fun to play, but I ended the day completly spent. Trying to play against the dice make everything more complicated strategicaly and my mind was nearly blank at the end of this day.
I had some real fun, and with my opponnet of the day we decided, we will try once to play together in the same team. Because you know negative + negative = postitive, so maybe, maybe, we can turn our luck around that way. But if it does not work, he probably his going to be my main opponent to play against, because If I don't I'm gonna get destroyed by the other guy's, just because of dice.
Hope you guy's liked this small not really formal battle report. God it took me an hour to write all this, it take really too beslubbering long lol.
I will see you in a few days then.
Grizzly out and off to bed !
