    Good battle report. I still don’t know why every one is all hyped up on using immortals with tesla instead of guass. If his immortals had guass blasters they could have tried to take down that stormraven when it went into hover mode and I think they were close enough to be in double tap range. Oh well to each his own 🙂

    Good battle report, however didn’t like the necron list at all, it had no real kick to it. Wraiths are ok by themselves but not great and this report showed that, this army would have been much better off with a destroyer lord to soak damage for the wraiths and give them an extra kick in combat.

    The A.barges were good and really when aren’t they. I would have liked to see a stormtek in the warrior squads since without it they really serve no purpose other than praying the flyer lasts to the end so they can cap. And then there were the immortals… So many points spent to do really nothing. They were a durable capping unit(especially with nemmessor) but was it neccessary for 2 units of these? Don’t think so, the units they are effective against were units that the flyers and A.Barges were effective against so their inclusion was redundant and it really showed as the A.Barges killed all their good targets and they sat and did nothing. I would at least include a lancetek in Tesla immortal squads to increase the kill range as well as make them threatening to more targets, plus you pay to access a royal court, may as well make use of it.

      I agree with a lot of your points but I think you may have missed me saying it, or I wasn’t clear enough about it. The Necron army was literally made out of our bitz bin with what was available! Haha, we didn’t a single new kit in that, it was made out of a ton of extra bits and sprues, which is why I was calling them the Junk-ta-Crons.

      Doh! haha, I see all of the comments on a screen by themselves. It gets easy to mix them up at times. Sorry, Castle!

    Yep, all he had to hear was folks saying the necron list has weaknesses and that they didn’t like it and Reese just figured it had to be his 🙂

    Good batrep overall. They are succinct and full of information. This did a good job of highlighting two important points. First, it showed the rock/paper/scissors aspect of the necron air approach with small capturing units. This GK list with it’s solid anti flyer really put the hurt on it and forced the small easily killed units of warriors out early. Secondly, it showed the effectiveness of good threat assessment. Identifying the wraiths as a threat to your plan and taking them out right away was huge. They brought threat range, close combat threat, and the ability to shift units off an objective. Once they were taken out, the necrons completely lacked the ability to accomplish that necessary task. Good game guys.
