You got worked by LoS and Oblits. You can take solace in the fact that after the battle none of your men were anally raped by slaanesh's minions.

Great game, lovely figures all around.

You did get a kicking, but even though they're a dying race, there's more where they came from, right?

Wow thats spooky. I was about to post an Eldar vs Noise Marines 1750 battle this weekend but my buddy could not show up so it was Noise Marines vs Kroot Mercs.

Sooo this coming weekend I will be playing Eldar vs my buddy Sousou playing the Noise Marines, 1750, and I will try to win it back for you Panic!

Hey maybe in the future we could do coordinated battle reports from opposite sides of the Earth

All painted and pushing 60,000 points combined.


A good game of 40k is one part competition and two parts cooperation.

Great job Panic (on the report itself) and gratz on the win Ian.

I know you like Spiders, Panic, so do I. I've the best success running them in two groups with attached Autarchs w/PW, FG, Mandiblasters. Helps getting them there earlier and adds some punch in HtH. Not sure if they'd have changed anything here but I find a small unit of Spiders doesn't really do enough damage and is easily crippled with just 2 or 3 casualties.

I'd drop them and get more of other stuff or get more of the Spiders on the table.

I also don't feel they really benefit from Farseers so lossing the Farseer isn't such a big deal. Doom doesn't help them much and fortune is never in range

Nice report. Very pretty armies and a nicely evocative battlefield. The pictures presented the action very coherently.
And I appreciate your willingness to chronicle battles you lose as well as those you win, Panic.

What blessing did the Possessed receive from their Gods for this battle?

Well written, Panic! It was an enjoyable read. One question though: Why did your Farseer not take runes of Warding? They seem like such a great deal and would have helped against the lash.

EDIT: Also, have you thought of replacing the Dark Reapers with a Wraithlord? I think it would fit your theme better and give you some more CC punch. Plus it will take some fire off your Wave Serpents.

Very enjoyable battlereport, thanks!

One minor thing nagging at me though: Surprise Assault on the warp spider exarch. Since all standard missions allow jump infantry to deep strike, I think this exarch power has no effect at all in fifth edition. Or am I missing something?

Good catch. It has no effect unless you are playing a special mission that doesn't allow Deep Striking (in which case, you still get to use it).

@Morehammer - I think that would make for a pretty cool storyline, you tying your battles together!
