Necron deployment

Tried to seize initiative, failed.

TURN01

CSM: Everything moved forward. Rhino pop smoke. Defiler fired at scarabs, kills 2 base.


Necron:
1. Left Scarabs assaults the Rhino, immobilized left and stunned right Rhino.
2. Right Scarabs moved up but failed to assault, rolled snake eyes T.T.
3. Wraiths moved up but outside Daemon Prince assault range.
4. 01 Cryptek destroys a Rhino with shooting.
5. Overlord and Immortals veil to the top and stuns the 2nd Rhino with simple gauss weaponry.
6. Tomb Spyder took a wound and spawns 2 Scarabs to the left swarm.

TURN02


CSM:
1. Rolling for reserves, Greater Daemon arrives and promptly replaced the Asp. Champ from the destroyed Rhino.
2. Greater Daemon with the aid of 02 Daemon Princes devastated the Scarabs. Before the Scarabs felled, they did reduced 1 Daemon Prince armor to 6.
3. Chaos Marines from the bottom Rhino disembarked and moved backwards.
4. Since the Rhino couldn’t move, the Scarabs very efficiently disassembled the Rhino in no time.
5. Dreadnought fires his plasma cannon at Wraiths but has no effect on them(made their 3++ saves).


Necron:
1. Immortals veiled to the middle of the board and shoots at the reduced armored Daemon Prince and drops it.
2. Scarabs moves and assaults the Defiler, chewed through the armor and wrecks it.
3. Wraiths and Destroyer Lord multi charge the Chaos Marines and Daemon Prince, putting most of the attacks on the Marines. Since Wraiths will strike first due to whip coils, they wiped and Chaos Marines and combine with Lord puts 2 wounds on the Daemon Prince. Prince swing his big sword at the Wraiths but fails to deal any wound as the Wraiths phased out/in timely. Prince fails 1 armor save from no-retreat rolls.

TURN03


CSM:
1. Dread fails frenzy roll and charges towards the Scarabs. Kills 3 Scrabs bases but its armor is now 7/7/5.
2. Chaos Marines rapid fire at the Scarabs, no effect as the Scarabs went to ground for a 2+ cover save. They didn’t want to risk taking dangerous terrain test which fails on 1 and 2 thus they shot instead of assaulting.
3. Greater Daemon assaults into the Wraiths. 1 Wraiths drop. Still locked in combat with both Greater Daemon and Daemon Prince with 1 wound left.
4. Obliterators are still in reserves.


Necron:
1. Wraiths and Destroyer Lord finishes off Daemon Prince and Greater Daemon and consolidates forward.
2. Crypteks shoots and wrecks last Rhino.
3. Dreadnought finishes off the Scarabs, not before it is armless and immobilized (Scarabs wiped to no-retreat rolls).

TURN04


CSM:
1. 01 unit Obliterator arrives. Deepstruck onto the middle of the board, plasma gunned the Wraiths fails to do anything.
2. Chaos Marines shot at Immortals but Immortals made all the saves.

TURN05


CSM:
1. Last Obliterator came in, plasma cannon shot and dealt 11 AP2 wounds. Putting 1 wound on the Overlord, 1 on Cryptek and 9 Immortals.
2. Chaos Marines rapid fire and puts 2 wounds on my 2 model surviving squad of Immortals, Overlord failed his armor save.
3. Obliterator in assault powerfist down the Wraiths while the Asp Champion also powerfist down Destroyer Lord.
4. Rolling for reanimation protocol, only 4 Immortals came back. Overlord, Cryptek and Destroyer Lord failed their 4+ roll.


Necron:
1. Immortals retreated further in to the ruins.

Game ends. Chaos Marines earned 5 KP, Necrons earned 10 KP.

SUMMARY
MVP: Canoptek Scarabs.

Scarabs are amazing, amazing, amazing. They chewed down 2 Rhinos, 1 Defiler and seriously crippled a Dreadnought.
