Yesterday Eric met me out at The Whiz, a great game store, and it was nice to get up there and meet some other gamers. We played a 1500 point game. Dark Angels vs. Eldar, mission was Big Guns with Vanguard Strike for deployment. The game went a full 7 turns and ended up being quite bloody ending with an Eldar victory (we were even on objectives but I was able to tip the points with Line Breaker, Warlord and First Blood).
This was my first time playing a proper game with Eldar in any edition of 40k and I learned a lot. The Wave Serpents were the star of the show (no surprise), the amount of accurate high strength fire they are capable is astonishing. Most small units don’t have a chance against them, regardless of armor as the weight of shots just buries them.
More games this coming weekend.
