This weekend we had our monthly Meet Up game day. I only got to play one game due to some scheduling issues on my part. A big shout out to Kabbala for hosting and remembering to take pictures. One of these days I will remember :)
This week we started a new campaign. Nothing as grandiose as Mini Wargaming's narrative but more than just a bunch of random games. There is a system map and we fight over territories. It is a good system and pretty fun.

Since my Necrons have taken a back seat for the last couple of years I thought I would let them be the star of this campaign. This week I played against a elite Blood Angels army. from what I remember it was:
5 Sanguinary guard
5 man tacical squad
5 man tactical squad
5 death company
5 terminators with hammer and shield
|My wraiths held up most of his force for 3 turns|
The first couple of turns did not go well for my opponent and we stopped collecting objectives since I was up 11 - 1 after turn 2. It then became a game to see if he could table me. The Necrons were just too resilient and I held on for the win.
|These guys did their job admirably They deserve some paint.|
I used the Start Collecting formation, Retribution Phalanx. I like how it turned out. I might change up the units a bit and bring a larger group of scarabs. Three just doesn't seam to cut it. I also didn't use my Warriors aggressively enough. With them coming back after they are wiped out I think I need them up front as soon as possible.

My scatter dice betrayed me all game with huge drifts. He had so many 2+ saves a few direct hits would have made the difference. It did one shot the landraider so it at least make it points back.
While I love the Illuminor's model I think a regular cryptek with a phase shifter would be more economical. Although the lance shot is a nice bonus. I miss the old royal court days. For the next game day I am going to take out a few immortals and add in some new tomb blades and keep the rest the same and see how it goes.
|Are 4 shots enough to take out a storm raven? Nope!|
Have a great week.
