my last couple of games I've played against my brother at thousand points (48"*48" table)
he fielded his Necron destroyer cult which looks something like this:
1 Destroyer lord, 2X 5 Destroyers, 20 Warriors and 3 wraith
Although this doesn't look like an über competitive list he gave me a pretty hard time and he destroyed my army. His basic battle plan went something like this: send the wraith down the middle of the table with a unit of destroyers on both flanks while the warriors stay behind them and capture objectives.
my reaction to this would usually be to keep distance and focus on one of the units until it's dead. (which usually doesn't happen)
since the table is 48"*48" I sometimes can't even prevent a charge second turn. he then starts killing some of my transports and grinds my army in a few turns until there is almost nothing left.
I haven't tried to make a list specially designed to kill his although the time I took five gunboats I killed his army but the five gunboat army was really boring to play and woulden't perform to well against a vehicle heavy list.
thanks in advance for any advice
P.S. we play the maelstrom of war missions.
