Last night my Eremoi battled Will’s Drukhari in a battle on my new desert board. We played the narrative mission Ambush, where his objective was to get more than half his team through my forces and off the map.
A Kabalite wielding a dark lance did work from the backfield, taking out my missile launcher on turn one after a decisive shot took the initiative from me. I chose not to challenge, as my whole team was ready and I preferred to keep the command points. His comms specialist upped the percentages but rarely contributed to shooting, since he only had a 12″ range.
A few wyches got my marines into CC, while a pair made a break for the escape zone. My combi-plasma gun took down one charger on overwatch, which definitely helped me in the early game.
When the dark lance was finally forced to move, my leader & heavy moved out to safely open fire on him as he hid behind a wall buttress.
In the end the Eremoi took out enough elves through solid shooting and got that sixth kill in a team of ten to wrap up the win. Still, Will made it a tough game despite long odds. We’re looking forward to more games between these factions as soon as possible.
