Goatboy - Monday Game Report and Lists

Got a game with Darkwynn this weekend. He won due to secondary objectives. I might have tied but forgot to roll Reanimation protocols. The list I played is a mix on the one I posted on BOLS. Love how people just hate it.

HQ: Necron Destroyer Lord, Mindshackle Scarabs, Weave
Troops: Necron Warriors X 5, Night Scythe
Troops: Necron Warriors X 5, Night Scythe
Troops: Necron Warriors X 5, Night Scythe
FA: Wraiths X 6, Whip Coils X 3
FA: Wraiths X 6, Whip Coils X 3
Heavy: Annihilation Barge
Heavy: Annihilation Barge
Heavy: Annihilation Barge

HQ: Coteaz
Troops: GKT X 10, Psycannon X 2, Psybolt, Halberd X 1, Daemon Hammer X 4, Sword X 4, Brotherhood Banner

I played against Darkwynn's Eldar/Tau army and there was a lot of wonky dice rolling. Coteaz made 30 saves during one War Walker shoot fest. I also shot a lot at his Bastion with Dar Reapers at the top for awhile and the Exarch stayed around way to long. I think I did 30+ wounds to him as well and he made a crap ton of saves.

We ended up with him winning on Secondary Objectives. I couldn't keep a Warrior alive with Reanimation Protocols to save my life hah. But still - I shot a lot and made some nutty saves. If he didn't have that laser beam to shoot my Night Scythes down I would have flown around the board dakka dakka things all over the place.

The Terminators were poop this game. I just feel I need more guys and need to find some blob ideas. IG could always do good but I am liking Orks. I could go in two directions with them - either 60 boyz and a Big Mek or some Nob bikerz. I am leaning towards a bunch of boyz as that is a lot of dudes to get through as the Wraiths and shootie bits move around. I will be messing with this next.

This is the worst though - as it means I have to buy like 200 bucks in Wraiths. Or I could try to convert them up as well. I just like how the new models look and it isn't like the conversions will be any cheaper.

Minis! - Yes those are albino orks. I did one, it looked neat - so I needed to do 30. I might do another 30 too.

The Head is a Manticore head from the plastic Kit. Somehow it fit on the Wolf Body pretty easily with very little gap filling.
