How the battle endedHow the battle ended

On Sunday evening four of us played a free-for-all game on the end of the massive 40k table. We were roughly balanced in points and didn’t use any extra’s like command points or artefacts.

Apologies to my opponents but I don’t remember their names.

In the corner opposite me there was a Necron force. To my left was a solitary Tyranid, the rest of his army could turn up anywhere in his second turn. To my right there were some Tau but a number of his units were able to deploy in the very centre of the table on top of the tower with the zeplin.

The Tau player though he was safe up the tower but once he found he was in range for my dunecrawler and ironstrider and took a few wounds he jumped down the far side to engage the Necrons. He split his forces between engaging me and the Necrons and was eventually worn down until his last couple of Tau hid up the tower and took no further part in the battle.

The Tyranid player threw everything he had at me, which included Genestealers, Broodlord and Trygon. Ad Mech solid shooting, including some very lucky overwatch shots from the dunecrawler against the charging Trygon, eventually shot them all off.

Once the Tyranids were dead and the Tau were in hiding the Necrons were almost on top of me. By now I only had the dunecrawler and the tech-priest hiding behind it and continually repairing it. The dunecrawler was really struggling to get through the Necron quantum shielding while the Necrons were only doing the odd wound to the dunecrawler which I could easily repair. The Necrons would win eventually as their entire force would get into shooting position eventually and potentially get to the tech-priest.


We called it there but all agreed it had been a fun game.
