I got a game in with my friend RTVoril this past weekend, he was using Dark Eldar whilst I had Exodites and Eldar Corsairs. We played on the FLGS' new ice world table and thus the Doom of Mymeara it was!
1500 points, 'Tau deployment', Relic mission, I think I went first, but it was night-fight so my shooting was entirely ineffectual aside from killing some mandrakes who popped up behind my lines. The following are a few pics of the game, mostly taken by Neverness (thanks by the way!).
|The wall of the 'soon-to-be-martyred'. (Kushial can be seen in the background in the blue shirt).|
|Despite having killed off both squads of Mandrakes, and 'Supafly' deep striking in, the Exodite battle line is suddenly thrown into disarray...|
|These brightly colored fuckers are why. Repeatedly flying over head, decapitating the unwary in the process!|
|Such a DE pretty force isn't it! A Corsair Vyper deep struck into the backfield hoping no one would notice. Then the gunner opened up (killing nothing, WTF?!?!) and, well...they were 'noticed'. In short: Vyper go boom.|
|Deep striking and scattering badly, the Corsairs landed with their backs to the wall (literally). Inconveniently, they were right where they couldn't see the squad on the balcony. A few made it to the Relic, before dying to massed splinter fire.|
|The combination of cover+Conceal and Embolden allow the Exodites to secure the relic repeatedly. However they're (also repeatedly) gunned down like their Corsair allies before them. At this point I dubbed these ruins: 'the Alamo'.|
