Turn 1


Reserves: The Eldar just moved up the board waiting for the Daemons
Movement: NA
Shooting: NA
Assault: NA


Reserves: Rolled a 4 and got my main wave, put the Screamers farther back in deployment zone, and landed the herald and 20 Horrors infront of his jet bikes, while the Prince came in flying in the back on his deployment zone.  The Flamers landed near the building under the Path Finders.
Movement: Turbo Boosted the Screamers up behind a building.
Shooting: I shot with my Herald, and all 20 Horrors at his Jet Bikes and managed to kill 3 and take a wound off of his Farseer, the Flamers managed to kill two Pathfinders.

Daemons Landing

Eldar Deployment

Turn 2


Reserves: He made his reserve roll for his Razor Wing but failed with this swooping hawks, his Razor Wing flew on to the the board near the Horrors.
Movement: His Falcon, Wave Serpent and Jet Bikes moved up the far side away from my Prince and Screamers, and his Eldar turned to shoot the Prince, he also moved his Raider into the middle of the field.
Shooting: He Turbo Boosted with a his bikes and Falcon and Wave Serpent to create some separation   He shot with his Razor Wing at my Horrors but his large blast scatter off with both shots.  His Fire Prism shot at my other group of horrors and killed a couple, while the Venom shot at and hit the Prince but failed to wound.
Assault: The path finders assaulted the Flamers to try and tie them up so they can not do to much damage, killed 2 in overwatch and tied combat.


Reserves: I  made my Lord of Change, 3 more Screamers and the last of the Horrors reserve rolls.  The Horrors and Lord of Change came in next to the Icon and did not scatter and the Screamers came in near Falcon and Wave Serpent.
Movement: The Prince flew over to assault the Venom and the Screamers moved up to assault the Raider
Shooting: I was a little cocky in my shooting and assumed 30 or 60 shots from the horrors could wreck the raider and I could shoot the Wyctches inside with the rest of my Pink Horror's shots, but it took almost all 90 shots from three groups to kill it along with my Herald. (Lots of bad rolls) and my Lord of Change sky fired at the Razor Wing but failed to do anything.  The Prince shot and blew up the Venom.
Assault: Combat continued and I won combat by one and he failed his leadership but managed to get away.

Shooting: He shot with his Fire Prism at my Horrors again and only managed to kill a couple, his Guardians shot and killed my Screamers and the Falcon and Wave Serpent shot and killed a couple out of my other Screamer group. He used his swooping hawks blast and then they flew back off the board.
Assault: He assaulted my Screamers with his Wyches and finished them off.

Daemons Over Running the Eldar

Victory for the Daemons

Game over - Eldar Player calls the game.

With only a few guardians, and a Falcon left with his Razor Wing back in reserves he decides to call the game.
I think he made a mistake turbo boosting all his vehicles the second turn to get away instead of just moving as far as he could while still being able to shoot, he made some bad rolls with his Razor Wing but in reality he did not get much shooting off and I only lost a couple models.  He did not take advantage of the fact I only had half my troops on the board.
