It’s the final game of the Qualifiers, but with the superior firepower of the T’au at his disposal, will Fletch be able to bump himself further up the table before the Semi-finals, or will Chef and the implacable Necrons halt his advance?!

@chef, considering you need to be within 12” to declare a charge, and within 1” to have a successful charge… an 11 should always be a success, shouldn’t it? Or was there a minus to charge in that situation?

Wow. The Menhirs were very silent today. I’ll show myself out now. That was a terrible joke.

Really good game to watch. I really hate Tau shooting (Knight player) so it going up against reanimation was interesting to see.

Well congrats Fletcher! What a game guys, very exciting one and for me I’d say the first upset of the League. I didn’t think the Tau could outscore those Necrons, especially not after having seen the previous low scoring Tau games. Looks like Fletcher picked up some tactics along the way, well done man. Let’s see if you can repeat the upset tricks in the semi’s! Looking forward to the conclusion of Season 1, it’s been a blast so far. Chef, play time is over, the experimental phase is done, no more mistakes now. I wanna see you wear that… Read more »

Interesting game, I mean its a good thing that crons can compete on points even while they kill next to nothing and are also tabled but I actually think its a really poor reflection on the balance in 9th that secondaries are used as this kind of band aid. They are used as fake “power’ inflation because GWs rule writers started hitting the crack pipe mid edition and theres no other way to give older factions a chance now without rewriting a load of codices (which means invalidating expensive books they have sold to their customers which they obviously cant… Read more »

Congrats, Fletch! I like the Necrons, but O’Shovah’s one of my favorite characters.

So, does Farsight have a Khornate Chaos Sword or not? 👹

He makes a ‘mistake’ at the start that causes him to lose the game and dodge Lawrence in the Semi’s……very suspicious Chef!!! 😉

Great game and always interesting to see an unexpected result. Tau had pretty much all the army still standing in the end and still only narrowly scraped together that win.

Damn Fletch there really was no in between with your rolls. They were either amazing or totally hopeless. Eitherway really fun match to watch especially seeing Kauyons best ability actually being used……oh and the fact your coldstar managed to donkey punch some wraiths.

Well that was quite a game! Wild game to finish out the prelims!

Chef, I’m playing my first game (Tempest) against Tau today with my Necrons. I recognize the odds are heavily stacked against me, especially since I’m relatively new to the game and the other player is not, plus I won’t get the Nephilim secondaries. Any thoughts or advice on how to at least avoid a tabling by turn 3?

Very fun and interesting game to watch and very close too! I didn’t think the Tau were long for this world after turn 2. From a tau perspective I’ve noticed Fletcher has to negotiate enemy units using LoS blocking cover a lot and am wondering if it’d be worth it to consider those tau guns that ignore LoS?

HUge Plunder in chosing the secundary after hearing the mission. Lets see if Chef can recover from this with the primary points
unneded result with another unnecessary misplay with not measuring the 9″ properly in the end
