40K December/January League: The Story So Far

With the next Titan Tournament qualifier being an 1850 no allies tournament, I thought Necrons would be the best choice for my personal play style. So, I decided that I would run pure Necrons for the next league to get some practice in. Here's the list:

Imotekh the Stormlord
Necron Destroyer Lord
  • Warscythe 
  • Sempiternal Weave
  • Mind Shackle Scarabs

Royal Court
Harbinger of Despair
  • Veil of Darkness
10x Deathmarks
  • Night Scythe 
6x Necron Warriors
  • Ghost Ark
6x Necron Warriors
  • Ghost Ark
6x Necron Warriorsts
  • Ghost Ark
6x Necron Warriors
  • Night Scythe
Fast Attack
6x Canoptek Wraiths
  • 2x Whip Coils
Heavy Support
Annihilation Barge
Annihilation Barge
Annihilation Barge

Week 1:
Opponent: Chaos Space Marines
Deployment: Dawn of War
Objectives: 3x Crusade Objectives + Purge the Alien

Abaddon was still standing at the end but not much of anything else for the Chaos Space Marines. Win for the Necrons.

Week 2:
Opponent: Tyranids
Deployment: Vanguard 
Objectives: Relic + Heavy Support Kills

Squished some bugs. Sadly this opponent has still not figured out how to make legal lists. Oh well, the evil robots still won soundly.

Week 3:
Opponent: Adepta Sororitas
Deployment: Hammer and Anvil
Objectives: 4x Crusade Objectives + Individual Line Breaker Units

Sisters have gotten SO much better. This was a close game. My opponent apparently forgot about his search lights until nearly the end of the game. With Imotekh making it night fight for the first few rounds, it could have been a game changer. I always say 40K is a game of remembering. Usually the player that remembers the most wins, and I remembered the most this game. Thats a win!

Week 4:
Opponent: Orks/Cypher and Chaos Chosen
Deployment: Dawn of War
Objectives: 4x Big Guns Never Tire Objectives + Purge the Alien (Heavy Support Worth 2)

This was only the 2nd or 3rd time I'd ever played Orks. Despite that fact, this game ended on turn 3 with a Necron victory.

So that's where I stand going into week 5. I'm currently 4/4. I don't know that I've ever had this good of a record during a league. I know I've never won a league series. Only 2 more games left. Hopefully I can keep up the momentum and bring home my first league series "W".

  1. Nice to see necrons going strong. Sorry to hear about the Nid player. Some people just never learn. At least they don't show up to a tournament to try their shenanigans.

    Your list prob wrecked face against the orks. They have just have nobs with power klaws to deal with your AV13. Plus it looked like a small ork force. Never a good option.

    Sisters can be tough. Those rocket tanks are nasty.

    Good luck on your last game.
