The game
I refused my right flank where the immortals were stranded behind a large building - they played virtually no part in the game.

My Inquisitor's rhino was taken out in the first turn by the destroyers but he still made it into assault with the lead Necron unit. Between him and the death cult assassin both Necron warrior units were destroyed in two turns. The Necron lord took out the Inquisitor with psycannon but was then rapid fired to death by the storm troopers (just).

The destroyers flitted around being a pain and although I took several down they kept rolling their 4+ to come back. Grrr!

In the end the Inquisitor Lord and assassin won me the entire game once they were in combat by forcing phase out.

Result: Win

Learning points
  • 1st game ever against Necrons - I was worried but it went OK.
  • I won the game because of two power weapons (on the assassin and the Inquisitor Lord). Just these two models destroyed 40 warriors in four assault phases.
  • Orbital barrage hit nothing in the entire game.
