1 Grand master
5 striking scorpians including exarch,
10 striking scorpians including exarch,
9 howling banshees includind exarch,
1 Hive tyrant
we rolled to c who goes first and knowing my luck, i went last, then my little bro and then my big bro.
The farseer looked at his enemies in disgust as he orderd his faithful guardians to form a meat shield for the stronger units. While the eldar marched towards the mon-keigh, bullets flew over their helms as the rangers shot at the grey knights but to no avail.
The Hive Tyrant wasted no time and, with his horriffic warriors charged towards the humans hoping to feast on fresh meat.
Noticing that the eldar and tyranids were closing in on them, the Grand Master of the Grey knights ordered his brethren to hold position and fire everything at the eldar in hope of destroying the first wave before it was too late but luck was not on their side. Shots went wide and the eldar's armour managed to withstand most of the shots except 2 unfortunate guardinans.
The eldar pushed on, fearless of the enemies awaiting them. The rangers fired again but it seemed that before they were to pull their triggers, the grey knights dissapered from sight , leaving the rangers completely and utterly confused.
Notincing that the Eldar were closer then the humans and within firing range, the tormaguants snarled as they let lose a hail of fire at the gaurdians, cutting down 3 in the process. The tormagaunts couldn't help letting their appetites take over, charging to their doom with hand-to-hand combat with the scorpians, only to be slaughtered like wild animals.
A brief surge of relief passed through the grand-master as he saw the tyranids turn and fight the eldar, but this didn't stop him from ordering his troops and dreadnought to fire everything at the eldar as the gap between him and them was closing and fast. Unfortunately enough, only 5 gaurdians fell, leaving the holy warriors of the emporer to brace themselves for the worst was yet to come...
Frustrated by the tyranids attempt of destroying his army, the farseer orderd his scorpians to fire at the remaining tormagaunts fleeing from combat, cutting them down in a hail of shuriken fire. The guardians were now within firing range of the front line of grey knights. As they loosed their shuriken cataupaults, 4 grey knights fell, leaving the Justicar to hopefully avenge their deaths.
Rage had overcome the hive tyrant causing it to charge straight toward the humans not knowing of the mighty warriors awaiting it. The hormagaunts fired wildly hitting nothing but the thin air. Noticing that they weren't going to do much damage shooting, the hive tyrant orderd his grousem hormagaunts to charge the vindicare who had been having the worst luck through out the battle not managing to kill a thing.
The Grand-master charged towards the hormagaunts who had almost over rode the vindicare due to the vast number of claws slashing at him but his lightning fast reflexes managed to keep him alive just long enough for the inquisitor lord and the grand master to cut down his oppressers. With a loud shout, the Inquisitor lord ordered his stormtroopers to charge the gaurdians. The courage and skill of the storm troopers managed to vanquish almost all of the gaurdians, leaving the last few to flee from the battle field.
Perfect, thought the farseer to himself. The little mon-keigh were now in his grasp. He ordered all of his scorpians and banshees to leave the tyranids and destroy the mon-keigh. The mighty power weapons weilded by the banshees was too much for the stormtroopers to handle, cuting every single last one down, leaving the justicar to recieve the full wrath of the eldar as he was the closest enemy in sight.
The Hive tyrant, now the last tyranid standing on the battle field, roared in anger at the measly humans as it charged towards them. As the humans were just out of it's reach, it fired it's bio- cannon at the inguisitor lord and his retinue, decintergrating the sage and gun servitor to nothing but dust.
Noticing that it was now a lost cause, the grand-master and the inquisitor lord charged towards the hive tyrant, hoping that even if they die, they may destroy this vile beast and hope that none have to share the same fate as them. The grand-master sliced furiously and focusing his mighty pshycic strength, managed to defeat the hive tyrant with one killer blow of his nemesis force weapon. The justicar charged toward the eldar, hoping to die in battle with his brothers the grey knights.
The farser pittied the justicar as he died in his final charge from the numerous gashes from the banshees. Noticing the next biggest threat, the farseer threw his singing speer straight into the daunting dreadnought, only to destroy it's rocket launcher. Bullets flew from rangers rifles, managing to pierce the dreadnought's mighty armour, causing it to fall to it's feet while the the upper body exploded into a might ball of flame.
Seeing that there was no way out of this unless they were dead, the Grand-master, Inquisitor lord and the vindicare assasin took one last glance at each other, just before they roared their last war cry while they charged into the eldar force, cutting down many in their path. But, the vast numbers of eldar hacking at the 3 mighty warriors was too much for them overcome. They were all cut down but their in their deaths they managed to destroy a terrible foe who could have gona on to kill thousands, the vile Hive Tyrant.
Overall: Total eldar victory, minor Daemonhunter loss, major Tyranid loss.
