PostSubject: Sky & Vasara go to Cally   Thu Jan 14 2016, 17:42

Caledonian Uprising is the biggest 40k event of the year in the UK, a two day event with 180 participants. There are three formats: 1850 standard (two source, restrictions, 90 players), 1850 battle forged (anything goes, 30 players) and 1500 highlander with 50 players.

Most of the top players in the UK and Europe will be in attendance this weekend.

And Sky Serpent and Vasara.

In this thread we will be going through some of the Dark Eldar lists going as well as sharing some photos and how it is all going.

Lol. I can't figure it out. A 5 man deathstar of bike farseers? With baharraoth maybe? It doesn't seem that potent honestly. Though he will run rampant in the psychic phase I suppose.

7x3 ObjSec Windriders but without scatter lasers. I guess he's planning on taking objectives! Plus he's got 9 Wraithguard who I guess will arrive with the Archon, Eldrad and Baharroth to form a death star. Maybe join all the jetseers into another death star? Or have them all join the Wraithstar?

If you can deal with the Wraithguard then he's got very little firepower anywhere else and you can pick off his small Windrider squads one by one.

Mad dash objective grabs often leave those obsec bikes open to a charge and any semi competent unit will destroy them in close combat.

And my problem is how easily both deathstars die.

Thanks for opening the topic Sky.

My list is the one with nid allies.

My first opponent is a nid/eldar list with 3 flyrants, venomthrope, 4 units of scattbikes and two 9 strong units of warp spiders. So it is as close as mirror as i can get here. Thing is to get flyrants in a right wave compared to opposing flyrants. I have no idea how good my opponent is so I assume he is perfect.

Sky Serpent managed to get a bye for first round but hopefully he get an opponent due to late arrivals or bail outs.

Saw a batrep at LongWar witu similair army to Barton. Maybe it was him? They are somewhat annoying so some detail got lost.
Although this list had scar bikes and a aspect host of 'Spiders as well as Eldrad+Baharroth+Wraith unit.

Anyway, apparently the wraithstar relies heavily on getting "Gate of Infinity", and then combined with Baharroths "Herald of Victory" allows him to move and just shoot units to death.

The batrep actually has a Chaos Space Marine +Daemons army winning against the list.

Been to the venue and registered, time for a good steak with good friends.

We stopped at Warhammer World on the way up and picked up a Dark Eldar art print as well as a good walk around the new miniatures hall which is stunning, I've taken photos of the DE studio army which I will upload when I am home after the weekend.

As Vasara said, currently haven't got an opponent at the moment but I am sure that will be fixed. Cally plays multi format missions so for the first game we have hammer and anvil for deployment, crusade for the primary mission and contact lost as the maelstrom. All of the usual tertiary objectives are there and kill points are in every game but the most you can score is 8.

My list is the one with a court and Corpsethief.

When I first read all the lists, your one struck me as the I could get behind.

Full of threats, and pretty fast besides. Good luck, and give them hell!

P.S. can you make a mental note of how much damage your Archangel of Pain does? I'd be interested to see what it can do at high level events like these.

Sorry for the delay:

First opponent. Flyrants with eldar: 11-9 victory
Second: Eldar (Spiders, WK, bikes) 7-13 loss due time issues, only 4 turns. Last turn WK charged to relic denying it from me.
Third: Draigostar 5 centurions, chaptermaster, tigurius, 2 GK lobbies 12-8 Victory due T5 object grab.
Fourth game: Necrons (zandrecht, Orikan overlord and wraiths along with destroyers in a Decurion. 6-14 loss. I failed almost everything. Including 4” charge with reavers against 3 Scarabs and 3 tomb blades to 2 tournament points.
fifth game: Raveguard Skyhammer with scouts to precise deepstrikes. Reavers died first then flyrants to the resque. 11-9 victory (slight time issue again)

Three minor victories and two losses. So overall not so bad. Three hours playtime is not that much. We normally have an extra half hour and it really makes the diference.

It was nice meeting Sky and he’s very good looking army of true kin.
