Sluggin it out in the battle bunker, VICTORY
General Bass and General Oadius traveled to Antioch last weekend, Sunday November 13th, to the Battle Bunker for some 1500pt Tournament action. Local players and participants from the bay area open were there for some fierce competition and a good time was had by all! I played my Dark Eldar Drecht list, General Oadius played a Blood Angels mech list. I will post my list at the end for your viewing pleasure. I ended up in FIRST PLACE when the dust settled after four grueling games. My games went as follows.....
Turn one was uneventful with little done by way of shooting on either side. Turn two took the battle to nurgle and the grotesque and wyches went in heavy swinging away slaughtering two full squads of plague marines and a lash sorcerer by the end of three. By the time reinforcements arrived it was all over. Dark Eldar win
Game TWO was against a mech blood angels army (not General Oadius). Pitched battle seize ground. The game was back and forth on both sides for it's entirety and I ended up getting the win by having troops on my objective, and roadblocking my opponent from his objective with the
Voidraven bomber and razorwing fighter on the last turn. Dark Eldar win
Game THREE vs CSM nurgle with two warptime daemon princes. This game took off quick with assault on the First turn. The archon and grotesques slaughtered the two daemon princes and it appeared as though victor was at hand. my dice stopped rolling good tho and nurgle was hot at the death of his two prices, in the end we both killed all our troops. Dark eldar tie.
Game FOUR - the tiebreaker vs necrons and the stormlord. This was the first time I got to play necrons since the new codex came out. The stormlord controlled the first two turns and blew up two of my transports, and the sprees were shittin out tons of scarab bases. Once again the grotesques and the archon went to work killin a ghost ark and the warriors inside. The voidraven blew up another ghost ark, and the destroyers were mowed down by a venom. The game was spearhead annihilation. Dark Eldar eked out a tie on this one.
The 1500pt Drecht list as follows...
Archon Drecht, agonizer, ghostplate armor, combat drugs, phantasm grenade launcher, shadowfield.
Three haemonculus no upgrades.
Three grotesque with a liquifier gun. Abberation with flesh gauntlet, raider with grisly trophies and flickerfield.
