Battle Report: Silar's Eldar!

Yesterday January 27, I had a battle against Silar and his Eldar.

My 1500pts list:
3x Tactical Squad squads w/ drop pods
2x Vindicator Tanks
1x Squad of sniper scouts
3x Dreadnoughts

Silar's List: (approx)
Storm guardian squad in Wave Serpent
Guardian Defenders in Wave Serpent
Dire Avengers in Wave Serpent
2x Wraith lords
War Walker
Striking Scorpions

The Mission we rolled was two objectives and standard deployment. I took first turn. I put my scout snipers on my objective and placed my vehicles besides them. Silar deployed all his skimmers away from his objective, which was really Eldar of him! I landed a drop pod near his skimmers, and the other pod landed beside his objective. I combat squadded to give max distraction. The rest of the game his skimmers and wraith lords edge closer to my lines as they shot at me and I shot back.

There was a huge epic moment when his Avatar charged 10 tactical marines. After the dust settled, there was no more Avatar and a single marine took a wound. poor marine :(

He did a turn 5 turn tank shock at both objectives, which resulted in a dead scout on my side of the board, and an immobile skimmer at the other end. We did play to turn 6 and both skimmers ended up exploding from krak grenade.

In the end, humanities best prevailed with 2-0 objectives.

Silar, if your listening it was great to play against you and I would have a rematch at any time!
