The Imperium vs Eldar, 40k AAR
A couple of weeks ago we played a big game of Warhammer 40k.
We pitted the forces of the Imperium against the Eldar.
On the Imperial side we got my Death Korps of Krieg, a mostly mechanised Imperial Guard army and Grey Knights.
The Eldar forces was somewhat interersting, packing a lot of Wraithguardians (I think they are called that atleast, you know those "small" Wraith constructs with "only" Toughness 6...).
I think it was something like 3500points on each side.
"Helga" and "Heidi" makes a tremendous amount of damage even with the night still lingering making the enemy hard to pick out.
Im supported by a Sentinel and a Dreadnought but besides that I feel realy lonely right here. The flank seems doomed but I prepare to atleast bring some of these aliens with me before my troops are scraped from the table.
If I could just buy the centre and right flank time I will have to be happy with that.
I storm forth from my ruin and manages to take out a Eldar transport with some Krak grenades.
I made a line with one squad, guarding my flank from enemy reinforcements. This paid off and his Scorpions were forced to deploy along way from my Griffon.
There is some size differences here.
"Heidi" have by now racked up a considerable amount of dead Eldars and they wanted it silenced.
It was downed later and I think it was that Dreadnought that did it, but Im not sure.
And here we called it a day.
A really nice game with lots of interesting miniatures.
But most effective units have to be my Basilisks with the Griffons on close second. It was a nice feeling being able to take out 5 or 6 of those Wraithguardians with a single shot. Even the Griffons that wounded them on 4+ were sometimes able to oblitterate loads of them. And as the armour piercing are not good enought to automaticly go throu their armour I was able to pick on those in cover with the Griffons as the Basilisks picked on anyone that had left their cover. Granted, rolling like a God on the scatter rolls does help...
Big thanks for all playing the game.
