Welcome to Librarium Online!
Majorly informal and points were skewed to spacies.
Okay, I currently own 12 warriors, 3 scarabs and 1 Warscythe Lord (meant to get res orb, but hey it works) A buddy of mine owns SM and some IG. So we decided I'd get two squads of IG with flamer and grenade launcher, 1 command squad with 3 flamers, lascannon and grendade launcher, 1 unit of 3 ratling snipers, 1 officer with boltpistol and power weapon, two chimeras (1 with pintle mounted heavy stubber and heavy bolter, one with heavy bolter and smoke launchers) I also had 1 missle heavy team (2 guards, 1 missle) a setinel with top armor and lascannon, and a giganticly tall plastic creature from Star Wars he converted into a weapons platform bearing behemouth with the same stats as the setinel but with forward facing lascannon, rear heavy flamer and pintle mounted heavy bolter). My necrons (all of them) were held in reserve (1 warriors squad, 4 scarab swarms (I borrowed a ripper swarm) w/ 1 lord with scythe, VoD, phase shifter) so two units. He had 1 land speeder with the missle launchers and a multi-melta, a tactical squad (multi-melta, missle launcher), a dread with multi-melta and powerfist/storm bolter, 5 regular Termies (including the sarge), Chaplian, Librarian, Sternguard and a captian with lightning claw and plas pistol, biker with bolter and heavy bolter. He also had a unit of scouts with a sarge, 4 snipers, heavy bolter, and 3 shotties.
I went first, moved my behemouth. Had my command squad in a chimera and 1 troop squad. I had infiltrated with my ratlings and shot at his command squad, no wounds. moved my troop squad forward to get in range with flamer and grenade launcher.
Turn 1 opponent
He moved his stuff around, flanked his scouts and killed 2 guardsmen,
I shot back with guardsmen, killed the heavy bolter, shot and missed with setinel and chimera, moved closer with command squad chimera, moved footsoilders closer, shot at his librarian with behemouth and missed. Shot a wound off his librarian with my ratlings.
Turn 2 opponent
He DS his dread, and his landspeeder, killed a few guardsmen.
I DS my swarm lord and my warriors, put warriors in position to rapid fire, lord to assault librarian, Immobilize dread with lascannon, don't do anything to landspeeder, fail to kill librarian with lascannon. Warriors roll 44 shots, hit like 26 and get 16ish wounds, wipes out everything in the tactical squad except the meltagun and missle launcher.
Turn 3 opp.
He DS his termies, scatters onto terrain and gets delayed. Uses some scatter psychic power and misses.
I charge his librarian with my swarm and lord, kill the librarian and he gets 1 unsaved wound, force weapon kills my lord (stupid mistake attaching scarabs to lord, should have just ran seperately) Kill most of his command squad including apothicary, and everything except the captain with claw, chapter champion and a powerfist sarge. I kill the bike with ratling sniperfire. (scouts and guard still trying to kill each other, 4 snipers at this point, no flamer 5 other guard) I assualt with my warriors to keep from getting shot at and to get the bonus attacks (still has a plasma pistol and he also has termies to DS)
Turn 4 opp.
We fight some more CC, termies roll a hit on DS right behind my warriors.
I kill his landspeeder with setinel, my ratlings die to Dread, I get IG squad in Grenade launcher range and start shooting termies...nothing, I assualt with scarabs and lose 3 bases to powerfists from the termies 1 left.
Battle ends with my crons dead via termie and power weapons, scarabs and lord dead, chimeras and setinel in tact, command squad in tact, troop squad in tact, his scouts dead, my ratlings dead, his bike, librarian, chaplain and tactical squad dead, dread immobilized, most of his sternguard dead. He probably had 200+ points up on me and I still managed to kill most of his stuff he had 5 terminators, paralyzed dread and 3 marines left.
Dark Lord of the 'Crons
So any advice on how to play better next time?
Dark Lord of the 'Crons
Well next time, i'd definitely use your friends models as PROXIES instead of rules for a different army, I don't feel mixing IG and Necrons are really going to give you that home grown death-robot feel. Write up a Necron list, use Guardsmen as extra Necron warriors, sentinels could maybe pose for Destroyers or something? just work a way out that you're using pure Necron units instead of some strange hobbled together mixed force. IG and Necrons are VERY different as far as playstyle it's a rough combo.
If I remember right, Destroyers all use the large flying base, so I hope you've got a lot of Skimmer tanks that you haven't given their base yet
I'd use some appropriately sized pieces of paper so you can do the "empty base" style of proxying. It works well as long as you have one model of the type that you can place over top of one of the circles for measuring and LOS and other things like that
FYI the bases used go something like
Infantry base for most
Large round base for scarabs and Wraiths, and possibly C'tan too not sure i don't have one of them, (but they're so tall it's nearly impossible to proxy for them anyways). It's the same size base as Sentinels, Tau Battle suits, SM Termies, ect
Flying base for everything that has the word destroyer in it (including some lords), and the tomb spyders. Oh and the monolith supposedly sits on one, but it won't do you any good trying to proxy a monolith with just the base
I like your dedication to WYSIWYG but unless you only play 250 point games that ignore the 2 troop minimum, you've got to proxy in those that your missing, because the split force thing you just did is pretty messed up, to be honest
Yes, I'm gonna proxy next time, but it was supposed to be really messed up. The "story" was that the necrons had done some sort of mind control to take over the guardsmen because they only came to do a small raid and the SM showed up...yeah pretty dumb, but since the crons were at his end, courtesy of DS, and the guard never left my side, it was more like this "Holy cow, we were attacking the Imperial Guard and the Necrons showed up!". But I thought it was funny that he had a unit of full blow marines land in the middle of a heavy weapons team, commander, troop squad and setinel type made up massive beast thing with a heavy flamer and heavy bolter, that died in 1 turn, but his scouts on my other corner didn't get wiped out till turn 5, after I shot lascannon, and 2 chimeraes and a troop squad at 'em
