Basically, I invited a friend over to play 40k, and we decided to make a battle report.
Here are the lists:
Company Command Squad-250
Colonel "Iron Hand" Straken
Platoon Command Squad-60
Infantry Squad A-62
Infantry Squad B-65
Infantry Squad C-80
Infantry Squad D-80
Infantry Squad E-85
Platoon Command Squad-45
-Sniper Rifle x3
Infantry Squad a-60
Infantry Squad b-60
Infantry Squad c-95
My friend didnt tell me his list, but he had:
2 units of Warriors (One had 11 Warriors and the Other had 12)
2 Lords (One w/ Res. Orb and the other mounted on a destroyer base)
6+ bases of scarabs
He gave them various upgrades which brought him to roughly 1,000 pts
Mission: Capture and Control
Deployment Type: Spear Head
Deployment (See Pics)
My friend chose the upper left hand quadrant (From where I was) as his deployment zone, He place the 12 man unit of necrons in a building next to the objective in his deployment zone. The other unit had the lord in it and was placed behind some trees. He place the scarabs in front of Unit with the lord out in the open. And his Destroyers and Destroyer Lord were placed on my Left flank behind some trees.
I placed my Objective in a building on the third floor, next to my Second Platoon Command Squad with the Sniper Rifles, the second floor had a squad with a heavy bolter and the one below had a squad with a heavy bolter and a grenade launcher. I place my Lascannon/ Plasmagun squad in front of the building to the left. A squad with another heavy bolter/ grenade launcher was placed behind them. I placed the squad with the meltagun in front of them but next to my Company Command Squad. In the ruins was a squad w/ a grenade launcher/ Missile Launcher. To their left at 7 o'clock was another squad with a grenade launcher/missile launcher. And to the immediate left of the squad in the ruins was the squad with the Missile Launcher/ Plasma gun.
My friend got the first turn and I failed to Seize the initiative.
Turn 1: Necrons
He moved every thing forwards/ towards me. His Destroyers turbo boosted to cover, taking up a position in a building on my left flank. The Lord's unit moved out of cover but behind the scarabs who moved towards my Company Command Squad or CCS. THe 12 man unit moved up to the wall of the building to maximize the number of shots they could get. He couldn't shoot with anything.
Turn 1: IG
I moved my CCS, one of my Platoon Command Squads (PCS) and the squad with the melta gun forward into cover. Everything else remained stationary. I used the order Move!Move!Move! On the melta gun squad, getting them in to the sand bagged area. I then used FRF!SRF! on the missile launcher squad that was closest and took out one base of scarabs and left another one with a single wound. I used my Sniper squad to Pin down the Unit with the lord. For the record, He rolled a 12 for his LD test, my friend was specific about making me write that down. The squad knocked down 2 Necrons but only killed 1.
He again moved everything forward except the pinned squad. He let loose a torrent of Gauss fire killing 5 men from the Meltagun squad and two from the closest Missile Launcher squad. He charged his scarabs at my CCS, I killed 2 bases of scarabs and I suffered no wounds. The Scarabs passed their leadership test so the combat would continue next turn. He also killed 5 men from my Lascannon squad with his Warriors.
Nothing moved. I brought in Sly Marbo and he dropped his Democharge on the lord's Unit knockined down 8 of them and wounding the lord. I managed to kill 4 or 5 of the fallen Necrons. The Destroyer squad got shot up by most of my squads but the plasma gun/ Lascannons missed and I only succeded in knocking over one Destroyer. The PCS shot both flamers at the unengaged scarabs killing 3 bases. I then charged the scarabs with the PCS. I used my Defenders React move with my CCS and managed to manuever Straken into combat where he and his squad murdered the remaining Scarabs.
Turn 3: Necrons
His Warrior squad with the Lord passed a Ld test and became un pinned, he moved his Destoyer squad forward, manuevering the remaining Destroyers into cover. He shot with his destroyer lord at my Meltagun squad killing 2 and causing them to flee. But since they were the closest unit and since he rolled yet another 12 for his target priority test, he massacred them. He also murdered Sly (Or Steve Martin as we named him, my friend called him Steve and since his initials are SM, we called him Steve Martin.) Thus ending his reign of terror...
Turn 3: IG
I moved my PCS with the flamers forward to cut off the Lord's unit from escaping into cover. After seeing what his destroyers did to my squad I let loose with the FRF!SRF! order and killed 2 Destoyers and dropping his lord to 1 wound. I used another 3 squads to kill the remaining destoyer. And it worked! Thus securing my left flank. I moved my CCS to the final portion of sandbags. I shot up his lord's squad with every remaining squad. But killed nothing.
Again he moved his unti with the Lord towards cover/ my PCS. He killed the company commander and a flamer. They passed the Ld test but were basically useless. That was all he could do.
I moved forward most of my Squads into the first part of the sandbagged area. I shot up the unit of Necron warriors in the building with 2 greande launchers and 2 frag missiles. Knocking down 8 necrons and killing 6 of them. The CCS was in position to use its meltaguns and a Heavy flamer. I knocked down 4 of them but 2 got back up. I then charged my CCS at the remaining unit of Necrons knocking down 3 and having 2 get back up. I suffered no wounds. I also charged my PCS at the lords unti and the comabt was a draw.
Since both his remaining units were in combat that is all we did, he managed to kill one of the IG from my PCS but they passed a Ld test. I killed 2 more Necrons with my CCS and he managed to get 2 wounds but I passed both.
He did the same as before but he had to go and I suffered no causualties from the combat.
As soon as I finished my turn he had to go but I managed to kill the unit on the objective and he killed my PCS with this Lord.
Take a look at the attachments for Pictures.
FRF!SRF! only affect lasgun IIRC.I then used FRF!SRF! on the missile launcher squad that was closest and took out one base of scarabs and left another one with a single wound.
Anyway, good battle report! Rep.

funny seeing an IG army with no tanks
i know this is kinda an old post but i think your necron buddy had a really shitty list, he should have dropped 3 of the warriors to get another destroyer
