Very interesting one regarding new CW rules.

Chef: i think your biggest fail was leading the destroyers right while his Banshees already were on your left side.
Do you underestimated them “a bit”? 😀
While i definitly have to say: GOD DAMN are they good now! *lol*
In special the first unit weathered so much incoming wounds.

In general well played + always good to see you at the Necrons!

Over all a very entertaining report! Thx for that 🙂

This one is really for Chef, but I’m happy to hear off anyone – given that the game is over and what you learned from the game, would you say you could balance the fight better with different units or is the necron codex in need of a slight tweek to compete with the newer codicies?

I do think it’s a bit odd that Jain Zar hits less hard than a Banshee exarch with mirrorswords and the +1 damage power. Some of the other Phoenix lords seem a bit more reasonable (Asurmen?)

Interesting first glance at the new Aeldari. I really like GW approach to giving each faction some unique faction bonuses so they feel completely new and revised. I really can’t wait for the Nids to come next though. I really feel sorry for Necron players though. IMO, 9th edition version of reanimation protocols is just so lack lustre, especially on multi-wound models. Necrons are supposed to be hard to keep down, but they just fall over from a slight breeze.

Awesome battlereport, thank you!
But RAW you don’t get Strands out Fate if you include a Phoenix Lord since they are not drawn from the same Craftworld as the rest of your army… Chew on that! Just like Ynnari rules… oO
Still can’t get over the fact that they can’t take Corsairs. Corsairs were among the first to join them and Yvraines datasheet even shows a picture of her with Ynnari Corsairs!

Awesome stuff, looking forward to going through the codex and with 10k plus of my craftworlds to choose from I should be able to put together some fun stuff. 🙂

Hey dudes, I seem to only get 720p max on my phone but if I watch this battle report on YouTube I can get 1080… anything I’m going wrong? Settings are already set to high quality.

Really enjoyed Steven Spielbeard camera work last episode. And just about to dig in Françoise Truffoad‘s work this time.
The perpetuel imput, progress, is noticed and… greatly appreciated!
(and not to sound too elitiste, but.. a surprise fart noise as a gimmick in each episode would be a great addition to the ombiance, to the unexpected vibe : more suspense ! ^^)

And THANKS A LOT, you really, truly, gave me something with this channel [O___O]

The age of the drukhari is over. The time of the craftworlds has come.
