Battle Report: Dark Eldar

We decided to kick off the weekend with a game on Friday night. I wasn’t playing against the Death Guard for a change; oh no, this was someone totally new. A friend of mine brought his Dark Eldar over and I was informed that it would be me doing the fighting! My long suffering partner helped me create the army list with some advice here and there about what to do! I took my new shiny Deredeo Dreadnought, freshly painted and gleaming to see what he could do, and a load of the Primaris lads that I have been painting too.

This was my first introduction to objectives. I had to clarify what they were for and I was reliably informed that in order to win I had to do said objectives or kill everything on the board. I looked at my friend and calmly informed him that I was going to kill all his models…

The Dark Eldar went first. They managed to kill a few of the intercessors in the first round. For a while, it was looking  pretty even; then the Dreadnought got to fire…

He dropped some reinforcements in from space (I cannot recall the name of the unit) and I destroyed them with another squad of intercessors. My Hellblasters peppered his troops with shots and my captain stood about and yelled at people to shoot harder! Those 1 re-rolls from both him and the Lieutenants is devastating. The dreadnought hits on a 2+ and I get to re-roll 1s…

As I had promised my friend, I killed every model on the board and scored my first ever victory in 40K. There was much rejoicing.

With the Captain shouting at him, the Deredeo hardly ever misses… BOOM!
