Yep, another comic book battle report! I’ve grown to really enjoy doing these because it suits my approach to battle reports: short, sweet, and to the point.
This week we have the Disciples of Twilight – playing as Khorne Daemonkin, against the Necrons. This is the same player, and Necron army, that I faced in the first comic book report I did. Kenny’s Necrons just look so cool when the filters are applied that I had to do another.
The game we played was a 1,750 game to practice for a tournament this month. I kept the same list I had last week with a few subtle tweaks. It’s too close to the event to rock the boat. In short, it’s a KDK CAD with a Gorepack formation. Pretty simple.
Now, on to the fun!
Blood for the Blood God!
Kenny stuck it to me early in the game with assaults. I slowly but surely continued to lose most of those combats. Necrons were destroying Khorne Daemonkin in combat! Kenny had the right idea though, deny me the charges and just feed me bodies.
The game came down to 1pt. We went into turn #7, with me at the bottom of the turn. I had 4 cards in my hand, and only one I could accomplish, Big Game Hunter. The only thing I had left on the board was Soulgore (Chaos Lord), 1 Chaos Marine, and 3 Bloodcrushers. I sent Soulgore after that Barge, and as the comic showed, he exploded it to give me the 1pt victory.
It was a hell of a game, neck-and-neck every single turn, and it came down to a single dice roll. I can’t complain about that in the least.
