This game is the last at this points level in an escalation league that I'm in. Enjoy this animated battle report.

Heh... the animated report is nicely done ;Y
Only thing I would eventually add is what exactly happened each turn, although it might be a lot of work.
In the beginning you state what unit is what, but after that it's pretty much guessing what killed what.
But all in all, good job 8Y
that eldar list was an absolute push over. not take any credit away from you but an autarch even in a small scale game is pretty poor, the fire dragons are for anti tank and its pretty obvious that you werent gonna take one. also they're only good mounted which wont do him any good in terms of points. rangers are for monstrous creatures and small elite squads. dire avengers are much better than guardians in this edition. sorry but your opponent didnt take a good list (i think so anyways) also failing 2 pinning tests would've been funny i imagine.

That was a pretty cool bat rep. As StKilda said it wasn't the best list to take against IG, but it wasn't that bad. I don't think there would have been much he could have done differently at any rate.
Mortars are fun, no? Everyone disparages them, and then they turn around and pin their most expensive units. I love them - I usually run a similar set up with my guard - I remember when they single handidly killed a jetbike squad, pinned avengers for 2 turns, killed the otherwise untouchable rangers and then beat down a farseer in close combat - they got MVU that game and a swag of trophies to boot!
The Eldar player is a 10yr old kid. He's playing WITH WHAT HE'S GOT.
of course, at the 500pt lvl for the Esc. League, the max armor was 32combined (front + side + rear), so he couldn't take his Falcon. He does pretty good when he's got his falcons on the board.
the rules we're using for 500pts are very similar to combat patrol rules.
For a lot of the younger guys who show up at our shop to play, the game is about having fun. This kids learning. He's gotten better in the last few months, and his older brother has gotten mean with 'nid swarms.
It's nice to see new blood coming in to learn the game. Do you show them good sportsmanship,

Wow, calm down man. Sorry i offended you but first of all if he's posting a batrep i imagine that it was a competitive game not a game where the guy was destroying a newb and i didnt know your rules either so.....

A feral Ork is a happy Ork.
nice batrep. though i couldn't get it to load properly on this damned PC. i had to read it in the alternat version, which is always nice to have ;Y
p.s. That crazy Guardsman with the huge chainsword is great! i don't know anything about the Guard's Codex but, are certain member allowed Eviserators? It's huge!
From what I've been reading in his reports, their store has their own CP ruleset.
I loved the report. The animation didn't work for me from the web page but snagged the flash and was able to play it from my desktop.

I've been addicted to World of Tanks lately and neglecting my IG... But it is so... much... fun!
Animation wouldnt work for me either, but loved the report, nicely presented Ailaros
Farm punk, there was no need for that. Kelda is right, the eldar list is appalingly bad, your eplanation makes sense so a degree but that information was not available
Personnaly when we get a 10 year old kid at my local store I take the time to discuss his army and encourage him to get a decent list
Everything you have been told is a lie!
