Had two league games this week against Fish and his brother, Adam. Didn't feel very well but needed to get them out and the way and it made for a very fun afternoon of 40K.
Played Adam and his Tau first in a kill points game. Deployment was spearhead so I knew I was going to have trouble against all those long range guns but didn't count on how much trouble. Overconfident I guess. I don't think I even got past the half way point of the board before he had oblitereated my army. I think I had a couple marines left and that was it. Fun game but dissapointing that I didn't do better.
Next up was Fish and his filthy filthy Necron hordes. I knew before the game even started that I couldn't win this one. Meat Grinder is an arse of a mission against Necron. Basically I have to destroy every last model that he has to win the game. Necrons, of course, get a roll to stand up again and he did just that. No way could I do this mission without divine intervention (and that didn't happen). Another good game but frustrating.
This leaves me with just four games to play in the league: Brian (Grey Knights), Mark Allen (Tau), Matt (Imperial Guard) and Marko (Necrons). Looks like last place in the league will be mine along with the wooden spoon.
