there have been a number of boo boos repeated from time to time. close combat seems to be the worst offender :p If someone is not engaged, they cannot pile in, thus, the three space marines that piled in, and later cyrus, that were not within an inch of the enemy, were out of “engagement” and could not have piled in. It is also worth remembering that with reanimation protocols, you cannot set up within an inch of the enemy, which makes reanimation protocols extremely tricky in close combat!

Great game; love the channel and the banter. Couple of questions; was there any particular reason the ghost ark didn’t leave combat with the dreadnought and shoot it? It has the fly keyword so not sure if I’m missing something? 2nd more general one; no destroyers in any of the Necron lists? They’re different than in 7th but still useful and fast; tough enough to survive casual assault and with the fly keyword they can step out and blast anyone who has managed to catch them.

Really good game guys, nice to see the ‘crons doing well. Other people have picked up the turn 1 night scythe faux pas so I’ll not dwell on that *cheat!*. I think it is worth highlighting the invasion beams / eternity gate rules though. Now that units aren’t deployed “in” the transport but on the tomb world, you have a lot more turn 2 flexibility if you’ve got your monolith and 2 night scythes a long way down field – anything can pop out of anywhere. On that basis alone I’d say that night scythes are worth their place in… Read more »

Lawrence, Quick question while watching the battle report I noticed starting with the Blood Angels attack in battleround three you were saying going on initiative that the Blood Angels were to go first on battles of models already engaged, initiative doesn’t exist in eight edition so how could the Blood Angels go first in the assault phase of on going battles? Other than that I have enjoyed all of your battle reports, I really liked how you corrected a rule interpretation even though it resulted in the Necron Overlord’s demise, keep up the good work and tell Bone as a… Read more »

Why do I feel like you rarely pile in and never consolidate? Isn’t the fight phase: Choose unit, pile in, fight, consolidate, repeat?

Wouldn’t the Overlord get his Invul before putting the wounds on the Lychguard as at that point he hasn’t actually lost a wound. That could have saved a few Lychguard.

Bone, I think you cheated yourself out of your Heroic Intervention rules in Rob’s turn 1 when that Death Company charged your Deathmarks. By the looks of the camera at least it looks like your Cryptek and overlord could both pile in the 3″ to attack the Death Company. Unless of course you knew that and decided not too anyway 🙂

Also you were adding 3 per Tesla 6 when it’s each hit becomes 3.

How did the immortals deploy after the scythes had moved?
