Dreadknight: Heavy Incinerator, Teleporter

As the Cron player, I was loving all the hype about Draigowing running through the Necrons. I really enjoy a challenge, and this felt like it would be quite a challenge. However, when I saw that Jim brought a Dreadknight with teleporter and H.Incinerator, I was worried. That unit, while not in a “typical” Draigowing list, would be brutal against me. With shunt, and an effective 20″ reach on the incinerator, I would have to be very, very careful in positioning my models. That one unit completely changed my game plan. The typical loadout of Psyfilmen dreads wouldn’t worry me much in a net list, but a Dreadknight did. At least it wasn’t Kill Points!

Also, we use the INAT FAQ here for all of our events.

Before the game we addressed several points that are unclear so that there would be no confusion:

Chronmetron works on Imotekh’s night fight.

Scarabs pooped out by Spiders can not conga line up the field, but all must be placed in coherence with scarabs that were present before any new scarabs were spawned.

NFW can be blocked by psychic defense (gloom prism)

I know that not all of these rulings will be agreeable to everyone, but this is what we felt was fair and in keeping with the rules pregame.

It was a great game, I must say, and had some insane dice!

Thanks for watching.

    Good game, but I would say NFW cant be stopped since it isnt a target spell!

      Yeah, i think we may have been playing that one wrong. Normal FW would be stopped, but not NFW.

    dumb question possibly… But i thought Scarabs couldnt hold objectives… So how are they contesting that objective?

      Anything can contest an objective as long as its within 3 inches. Troops only hold objectives

        This is correct.
