ok not only was this my first tournament it was my first time using the raven guard so i was a little nervous about the tourny.
first round i drew necrons, i wasnt too worried now. lots of warriors meant fresh meat for my assault troops.
My Raven Guard
9 shrike wing
10 assault marines vet srg w/ powerfist all with furious assault and meltabombs
3 x 5 tac marines with lascannon
lord with res orb/ phlactary and warscyth
8 scarabs with des fields
3 heavy destroyers
my vindicator manged to blow 4 destoyers to molten piles of slag on one flank and the other flank saw concentrated fire from the speeders and tac marines kill the other 5. the assault squad moved up to join shrikes wing who had infiltrated a building ready to pounce on the warriors.
the necrons were in a bad way, only 2 of the 9 downed destoyers got back up leaving a lone destroyer and a unit of 2. the heavy destroyers killed the vindicator and the necron warriors gunned down a speeder.
all my assault troops made it into combat with two of the warriors squads, i wiped out one entirely thanks to the lightning claws and killed 6 from the other. the speeder killed the lon destroyer while the tac marine killed 2 heavy destroyers.
the necrons piled into combat (dont know why) killed 5 marines but were mauled in combat then run down and chopped up.
kayvaan shrike personally handed the necron lord his metallic ass on a plate then the necron played conceded.
Result: massacre to the Raven Guard!
Wow, that was brutal.

Bad deployement of the necron because never should a vindicator be able to shoot at destoryers and all the destroyer should of been behing cover,
Except for that good game, shrike is a good character.
awsome game! i play raven guard too and i have to agree nothing beats shrike with his body guard in cc
That's an impressive victory, though you should keep in mind if it was a phase out instead of the player actually giving up. (necrons loose once they've taken 75% casualties)
If it was phase out, then very good.
If they actually gave up I wonder why, they could have made a comeback even from that kind of beating.
Wow... Pretty bad on the Necrons part, good job on beating him by turn 3! Nice. I honestly think that 'Cron player had no idea how to handle your list.
Congrats on the win
