40K Video Battle Report: DefeatMyArmy’s Crons vs. Keno’s Grey Knights

Dan and Keno battle it out in this test game. Dan wants to work the kinks out of his list and Keno was happy to help him out. Dan’s list is pretty interesting, definitely not the norm.

Enjoy the battle!

      Right? I thought that was pretty awesome! I love seeing “bad” units do well. I really liked the slingshot move with Obyron.

    Flayed Ones make a great anvil to the Wraiths’ hammer. Definitely an underrated unit (primarily by people who theoryhammer them out of viability without ever having seen them on the tabletop, it would seem). If Sweeping Advance becomes less deadly for Necrons in 6th, I think more people will gain the cojones necessary to run them.

      I totally agree. The only times I have used them, they worked well for me. They tarpit well and with weight of numbers, can kick booty. Like you said, if they don’t get run down so easily next edition, they could be really awesome.

      I really like that combo Dan uses to get the giant unit up-field quickly. That would work well for Lychguard, too!

    I’d like to see a rematch of these two lists with some fresh dice. GK flubbing all of their rolls kinda made things one-sided.

      Yeah, bad dice just tank a game, you can’t beat bad luck no matter how good you or your list are.

      Im always down for a rematch. This was one of my more fun lists, definitely not my most competive list but I had a lot of fun against Keno, lost to Wills Daemons in 1500 with a similar list.

      And Keno is still getting used to his gk. His main army is blood angels. I do like that little trick dan pulled though, that was cool.

        Glad you enjoyed it, working overnight has let me think up some really random combos. Playtesting my list let me do some last minute mod it for the Battle Bunker tournament. Hopefully there will be a crowd but The Realm is having a farewell to 5th tournament in Brea, CA so there might only be a few heads this month.
