Big bang at the end of the year

What started as a glorious rescue mission of an imperial world, ended in a disaster.     

The name of the world which was to be liberated, the people who lived there and the many stories that could be told, no longer matter. This world is gone. Lost for the Imperium of Mankind.

Conquered by the Necrons and eventually annihilated by a holy exterminatus, this world drifts through space as an utterly dead planet.           

This is all I can tell about our big battle at the end of the year 2016 (all in all 12.000 points!). Three Marine Chapters versus one huge Necron army. For us, the "good guys", everything went downhill right from the start and even before that (e.g. determination of psychic powers). Nothing worked and the game turned into a mere showcase for the Necrons. So we finally gave up in our third round.    

I had fun, nevertheless. It was a great day and a good game with cool guys. 

Facing the Necrons nowadays with all their formations (Decurion Detachment and so on) is really hard and in my opinion nothing for casual games. The Necrons can be made so resilient, that no known army can keep up with their damage output at the same degree. This is just frustrating.



  1. It certainly is an amazing looking game, some beautiful armies there. Shame it didn't go as well as it looked!

    I'm with you on the Necron Decurion. They are one of the toughest match ups, so hard to do any sort of damage.

    1. Thank you very much.

      And yes, we learned that the hard way. :D
