  2. Fluff wise I like, Eldar are a stagnant, dying race - they should not get shiny new things.
  3. Nightbringer is naaasty, but slow movement - it will delete anything it gets in combat with.
  4. Makes things (normally vehicles) go bang. More seriously, it gives you access to C'Tan powers which are like a Psychic phase and can really do damage against vehicles, you get one specific to your C'Tan, and one extra. So for the dragon its Voltaix Storn and Antimatter Meteor, theres a 1 cp strat to get another as well: Antimatter Meteor: Pick an enemy unit within 24" and visible to a C'tan shard. on a 3-5, deal 3 mortals. A 6 does 3+D3 Time's Arrow: Chose an enemy unit within 18" and visible to a C'tan shard. Roll a D6. If it's greater than a model's wounds characteristic, it is slain. Sky of Falling Stars: Chose an enemy unit within 24" of a C'tan shard. Roll a D6. 1-5 deals D3 mortals if the number is less than the total number of models in that unit. Cosmic Fire: Roll a D6 for each enemy unit within 9" of a C'tan shard. On a 4+, deal D3 mortals. Seismic Assault: Chose an enemy unit within 18" and visible to a C'tan shard. Roll a dice for each model in that unit. For each 6+, deal a Mortal Wound up to 10. Transdimensional Thunderbolt: Chose an enemy unit within 24" and visible to the C'tan (you cannot chose a character while they are within 3" of enemy models and they are 9 wounds or less). On a 2+, D3 mortals. Plus, roll a D6 for each other enemy unit within 3". On a 4+, they suffer 1 mortal. Voltaic Storm (Void Dragon): Choose a visible enemy unit within 18" following Look Out Sir rules. Roll a d6; on a 2+, that unit suffers d3 MW. If that unit was a vehicle, it suffers d6 MW. If that unit was a vehicle and it brackets, its wounds characteristic is considered halved for the purpose of bracketing. It has the Fly keyword and can only take 4 wounds per phase, regains wounds in the command phase + if it kills a tank it regens also.
  5. I do have a part built void dragon, but to fit it in my list (350 points), I'd have to drop: 8 Scarabs 1 Technomancer 10 warriors Which feels like a lot of flexibility/screening to give up.
  6. I almost won a game! Lost by 6 points but very happy with how the list went.Mission: Scorched Earth (hold 1, hold 2, hold more) - 45 points Secondaries:Assassinate - 7 Engage on all fronts - 8 points Mission specific (Raze objective) - 0 points Some poor placement of a technomancer meant that my opponents snipers killed him turn one, this meant my Doomstalkers were hitting on 4+, which is impactful (but not devastating), I also held my tomb blades back when I should have put them forward to clear an objective turn one, what was good however was using the Doom Scythe to one shot bjorn (warlord) turn 1, Bjorn gives a wide range of buffs to wolves inc charging etc so removing him really left a hole in the opponents line and then just had Scythe flying around being a good distraction till it died. The failure to clear that objective allowed the wolves to deep strike in a unit of hell blasters + Incinerators that were hard to shift and killed off the Scythe in quick measure. Other than that I was happy with how the game went, this list is balanced as it can be and so I think I am in good shape for the tournament this month.
  7. I had 6 in a previous list but they didn’t do all that much. Just back from a game and I lost by 6 points but I’m really happy with the progress I’ve made. I also killed Bjorn turn one with my Doom Scythe! I think the list is balanced as it can be, it will still be weak against psychic heavy lists but otherwise I think it should do ok.
  8. Starting a new thread to document my first ever 40k Tournament, the London GT! I'm taking Necrons, over the last few months I managed about 3 games that has given me the ability to refine the list and lean into what I think are the strengths of a necron faction: tankiness and board control. I am not using the 6 inch pre game move, its not been of any real benefit, and if you go second it just increases the chance of a unit being wiped. Instead I am using the option of a 3 inch increase in range to help my shorter range guns so my warriors guns become 15 inch S5 AP-2 reaper weapons, potentially hitting on 2+ with My Will Be done and double shoots in half range (a chance of 40 S5 AP-2), back up with a chronomancer and the veil of time. There is also two technomancers, one with the control node to babysit my doomstalkers and another with the canoptek cloak to increase speed + repair units. There are two units of scarabs for screening and/or objective holding, alongside two ghost arks to help move units around the board, block line of sight and repair units. As mentioned I have two doomstalkers for vehicle killing (if the dice are fair), D6 shots and D6 damage can really rain on someones parade if it comes off. Finally there is a Doom scythe for some turn two distractions and to help earn some secondaries. Full list: ++ Battalion Detachment 0CP (Necrons) [99 PL, 1,995pts, 8CP] ++ Battle Size [12CP]: 3.

  9. If leigh doesnt have them, then it's dooooomed. SOS is getting better at vegan alternatives but still a ways to go.
  10. Theres naff all vegan savory pastries in southend afaik (bar greggs)
  11. Has anyone done a tournament before? Any tips (beyond bring all your stuff, try and be off book for rules etc)
  12. I forgot about the void dragon, but that shouldn't take too long to do.
  13. I bought some prebuilt, same with the previous ghost ark - I ain't got time for that shit. I am very excited for this last ghost ark to be done, my necron army will be complete and I can move onto the Ork pile of shame.
  14. I think so, I'm gonna paint it in two halves but assembly took about many hours, lots of angles and areas to clean up.
  15. 164 parts to make a ghost ark, a 10 warrior transport. Fucking ridiculous
  16. Progress on a Necron Ghost Ark, got another one to build and paint - though looking at the kit I think its going to be sub assemblies, lots of them.
  17. I’m looking forward to it, though I don’t have much expectation of winning many (if any games).
  18. I got an ork truck and a void dragon for my birthday. Base coated that, a ghost ark and painted a doomstalker yesterday. The DS is rough tabletop but it’s sufficient for the London GT in September. I’ve also used that £10 GW voucher to order another ghost ark.

  19. It's a sales driven company and one that will take advantage of "the passion", to get the most out of its workers.
  20. Bonus will still get taxed don’t forget.
  21. That can't be the opening ceremony? That was utter shit.
