So, getting my Necron BFG fleet kicking into gear,in my second ever game. My first was not to long before this one, against the Dark Eldar fleet. needless to say, Necrons are quite good against eldar fleets.
My Fleet consisted of..
Two Scythe Class harvester ships, one Shroud class light cruiser, one squadron of three dirge class raiders, and three separate jackal class raiders.
The Ork fleets (of which I am unsure what is what) consisted of two squadrons of two kill krooza cruisers, One Death Dealla battleship, one brute ram ship.
There was no celestial phenomenon, as we played this as a quick game before the shop closed.
The beginning of the game, saw his fleet head towards mine in a solid clump line, with the Brute in the lead, and the two Kroozer squadrons in the flanks. I sent my Dirges to outflank on his right, while the Jackals did the same on the left. My Crusiers adjusted their movement to move through his lines, heading to the left.
I withstood some minimal damage before I was able to start shooting proper (a couple hits lost on one scythe, as well as a critical, and one Jackel shot out of the sky). My Scythes opened up with their Star Pulse generators, eliminating the Kroozers sheilds (after a few hits) and then with their Particle Whips and Lighting Arcs managed to cripple one of the Kroozers, while the other suffered an extreme critical hit and exploded, killing another of my Jackels and causing heavy damage on my scythes and his Death Dealla battleship and crippled Kroozer. His Brute Ram was easily annihilated by the explosion as well.
His remaining fleet then turned to their starboard, blasting weapon batteries at my wounded Scythe, crippling it and turning it into a drifting flaming hulk. The rest of the game saw my Shroud and Scythe try to flank around the back of his force, crippled, while the escorts fired at, and damaged his other Kroozer squadron. We basically traded pot shots at each other, crippling a few of each others ships. (The Kroot are the Death Dealers bomber Squadrons).
We had to end the game early, due to the store closing. However, at the end the battlefield as very close, however due to my scythe getting destroyed, I lost out on Victory points (Necron ships are worth 300%vp if left as drifting hulks). However, we were both still learning the game, but after the couple of games at the store today, more people are picking up fleets to play at our GW. Should be fun.
