At the Nova Open I played three games in the Night Fighters Event. This event spanned three nights and incorporated with the Narrative Warlords and Recon events. The first two games I played alone against a single opponent. The third game I was paired up with another team member and we took on a team from the other faction.
My first game I was matched up with a ten droppod list with Calgar and Tigirius. Tigi had a spell that lowered my invuln down by 3 and every turn he targeted a unit and his grav centurions then ripped that unit to shreds.
I also didn't think to bubble wrap my ghost arks an the melta squads finished them quickly as well.
My second game I played another Necron player, He did not play a Decurion which caught me a bit surprised. He had a C'tan and a destroyer cult detachment. While I was taking out his forces pretty well I positioned myself poorly for the final turn and almost lost the game by objectives. I think if I was a bit more aggressive I might have done a bit better.
the third game was against the same Necron player and his buddy who was playing a Khorne demonkin army. He had a huge dog unit with a lord and herald on juggernauts. I was teamed up with a Ravenwing army.
I castled up in the corner waiting for turn 2 when my partner would come in. I lined up across from the chaos army. Thinking about it I might have done better going up against the Necron list and let the Ravenwing take care of the doggies. They huge pack of dogs just tore through my ranks. I just couldn't do enough wounds to it to slow it down.
Hind site being 20/20 I think if we focused on the Necrons we could have pulled out a victory. I kept feeding units to the big dog pile and they wiped me off the board. Most of the Ravenwing was still in tack. The mission was a kill point mission which hurt even more.
So I ended 1-2 for the weekend. I had a good time and the guys I played were competitive but not one of "Those guys" I didn't have to face a knight so I was happy about that.
I would recommend the Narrative for anyone looking for some fun games and great players.
Tomorrow I will have my list with photos.
