Well this is one of my first battles. I went to a local comicbook shop and met a player who would play a match with me, telling me if I made any mistakes with the rules.
1000 pt Match. I was Eldar and the opponent was Necrons.
Maugan Ra -195
9 Dire Avengers -108
w/ Exarch: 2 Avenger SC, Bladestorm -44
w/ Wave Serpent: Spirit Stone, Vectored Engines, TL Starcannon -155
5 Pathfinders -120
Fire Prism: Holo-field, Spirit Stone -160
4 Dark Reapers -140
w/ Exarch: Missle Launcher, Fast Shot -77
Dont know much about Necron point cost but this is what he had
Necron Lord- Res Orb, Warscythe, Veil of Darkness
Rolled dice for deployment. I won and had him place first. Field was set up like this: A hill in the middle of the field, a building to my right, part of it in my deployment zone, a hill to my left all in my deployment zone, on his side there was a large hill on my left going along the edge of the field and a large hill in his deployment zone to my right.
Deployment: Pariahs put into large hill on his side, a Warrior squad put behind hill to my right on his side. Rest of the Necrons put behind hill in middle. I put my Waveserpent behind the hill on my side next to my Dark Reapers (with Maugan Ra) who had LOS with his Destroyers. I put my Fire Prism behind the building and infiltrated my Pathfinders onto the building with LOS on his Destroyers.
Rolled for turn, failed (each rolled a dice, he rolled a 3, I rolled a 2) so Necrons chose to go first.
Turn 1 Necrons: Warriors in middle move up behind middle hill, so does the lord, other Warriors stay still, Pariahs slowly move along large hill towards my side. Destroyers open fire upon my Dark Reapers killing 3 (stay fearless because of Maugan Ra).
Turn 1 Eldar: Move my WS around the hill in my zone towards the middle hill and my Fire Prism around the building but cant draw LOS on anything. Dark Reapers and Maugan Ra open fire on the Destroyers killing 2, Pathfinders do the same killing 2 as well.
Maugan Ra's gaze scanned the field of battle, the mechanical abominations were slowly marching forwards, their lifeless gaze staring back at him. Their attack was signaled by a flash of green light vaporizing the Dark Reapers standing near him. They had been aiming at him and he would show them what a big mistake they had just made. His fellow Dark Reapers opened fire hoping to avenge the fallen and were answered with the destruction of some Destroyers. The Pathfinders opened fire from the top of the building knocking some more down. Maugan Ra knew that with Necrons, however, will always come back even from the brink of death.
Turn 2 Necrons: 2 out of the 4 dead Destroyers come back. Lord uses Veil of Darkness and appears behind my WS with his destroyers coming along as well. Pariahs continue to move forward, Warriors behind middle hill climb into it and draw LOS on my WS. Other Warrior Sqaud stays behind his hill. Destroyers open fire killing 1 Dark Reaper leaving only the Exarch and Maugan Ra. Warriors open fire on the WS getting 4 glancing hits and ends up destroying it, my Dire Avengers bail out but 4 die.
Turn 2 Eldar: Fire Prism pulls back to draw LOS on the lord and Destroyers. Dark Reapers Exarch and Ra open fire on the Lord and Destroyers, killing 2 Destroyers, Fire Prism fires a focused blast but fails to do anything to the lord and last Destroyer. Pathfinders open fire onto the Warriors in the middle hill and kill 1.
Suddenly everything went dark and cold, as the darkness slowly lifted Maugan Ra saw the Necron lord staring straight at him with its metal gaze. A flash of green light followed frying another Reaper right next to him, their aim was improving and it would be a matter of time till they hit their mark. He could hear the screams from the Dire Avengers following an explosion and he could only assume the worst was happening to them. The Fire Prism opened fire onto the Lord but an otherworldly force shielded him from damage. The Pathfinder tried to put a dent into the marching Warriors but to little effect.
Turn 3 Necrons: The Pariahs move forward again and are finally able to draw LOS onto my Reaper Exarch and Ra. He fails to revive any of his destroyers leaving 1 left, the 1 downed Warrior doesnt come back. He seperates the Lord from the Destroyer, the Lord moves towards Ra and the Destroyer moves over the hill but still has LOS on Ra. Warriors on the middle hill open fire on the pathfinders but fail to kill anything, ditto with the Pariahs and Destroyer aiming at Ra and the Exarch. Necron Lord charges Maugan Ra, Ra goes first do to higher Iand hits the lord with 3 power weapon attacks, killing him.
Turn 3 Eldar: Dire Avengers move onto the destroyed WS. Fire Prism moves on top of the building alongside the Pathfinders. Ra and Exarch open fire and kill the last Destroyer. Fire Prism fires but misses the warriors, Pathfinders open on Warriors but again only kill 1. Dire Avengers bladestorm the Warriors killing 5.
Maugan Ra sees the Necron Lord lift his warscythe and charge forward. Maugan Ra brings his blade edge on his weapon to bare and easily slices the Lord in two. He then turns around and opens fire on the leftover Destroyer. The Pariahs open fire on Maugan Ra but his armour takes the brunt of the damage and is unscathed. The Warriors are met with a hail of bullets and many fall.
Turn 4 Necron: Lord revives and uses Veil of Darkness to jump on the hill that the other Warrior squad has still been hiding behind. 2 Warriors in the middle hill get back up leaving 5 Warriors still alive. Warriors behind hill move up to join the Lord. Warriors in the middle hill open fire on my Pathfinders killing 2. Warriors in the back hill open fire on my Fire Prism and destroy the weapon and shake it. Pariahs miss shooting at Maugan Ra.
Turn 4 Eldar: No one moves. Ra and Exarch open fire on the Pariahs killing 2. Pathfinder shoot at the Warriors on the middle hill but do no damage. Dire Avengers are reloading do to bladestorm. After its all over I realize i forgot to move my damaged Prism back .
A flash of light behind Maugan Ra caused him to turn around as he saw the two halfs of the Lord fusing togehter. Before he could fire the Lord disappeared in a blinding cloud of darkness. Fire from the large hill by Pariahs caught his attention and he fired a hail of bullets at their location, the sound of metal falling met Ra's ears.
Turn 5 Necron: Pariahs move back getting out of LOS of Ra and my Dark Reaper Exarch. Middle hill Warriors fire on my Dire Avengers but fail to kill anything, the other Warriors sqaud fires on the Pathfinders but fails to kill anything as well.
Turn 5 Eldar: Dire Avengers move off of WS to move toward Maugan Ra, Ra and Exarch move forward. I move the Fire Prism off the building behind cover. Dire Avengers fire at the Warriors on the middle hill and so do the Pathfinders and are able to kill them all.
Turn 6 Necrons: The Lord jumps again with the last Warriors in LOS of Maugan Ra and the Exarch. Warriors open fire but only kills the Exarch.
Turn 6 Eldar: Maugan Ra moves forward and opens fire on the Warriors, killing 1. Dire Avengers bladestorm the Pariahs and kill 2 leaving 1 left.
We tally up the points and the Eldar win barely.
[i]Maugan Ra surveys the battlefield, many Eldar gave their lives to stop the Necron threat but their spirit stones would be collected and be able to find peace in the infinity circuit. With one last look Maugan Ra turned and stepped into a ready transport.
This is my first battle report and I hope you like it. Any advice on how to write a better report would be helpful.

I like your writing style, quick and focused with the fluff seperated from the action. excellent job!
You did a great job for a first time report! I am glad that Muagan Ra served you well, he is by far the coolest phoenix lord.
Rep for you!

not bad at all dude. I liked the play by play with the fluff after. I do have to ask though with all the killing that was done to the necrons did u have your friend to the "phase out" check? it sounded like you killled 75% and if so you won regardless. Pariahas dont count towards this rule either.
A feral Ork is a happy Ork.
His Phase out is at 6... It sounded like he had more than 6 necrons left.
Nice battle report, by the way. Well spaced, and a good length for a 1000 points match.
... There's no place like 127.0.0.1
did he even use his pariahs besides moving them? honestly i dont think using pariahs was the best choice...
nice win. usually i like to see eldar die but with a beautiful battle report like that i found myself cheering for the eldar. well done

necrons cant revive if the get killed by a power weapon because mugan ra has a exacutioner(power weapon)he kills the necoron lord and he has no orbs of ressourction so necron lord dead and doesnt live again or am i jusr wrong
Necrons do not get a "We'll be back" if they were killed by a weapon with a strength twice their toughness, equivelant to being vaporised, melted into slag or sucked into the warp.
