The Space Marines are holding a defence position with three objectives to hold. A Necron force will arrive on one of the tabletop sides and is decided by a dice roll.
|Defence preparations are complete|
|The first Necrons arrive and size up the situation|
|A defending Dreadnought is destroyed by the combined firepower of the Necron destroyers and heavy destroyer. More attackers arrive under cover of a rock outcrop|
|The fort was the next target and after a couple of turns that too was in flames, the defending scouts exiting in a shaken state.|
|More defenders moved around to provide support|
|The scouts in the open were swiftly dealt with by the destroyers.|
|A squad of Terminators charged around the rock outcrop and caught a Necron command unit unprepared and made short work of them. Although they themselves would not survive another turn.|
|The final wave of the Necron attack materialises on the Space Marine flank as the rush up their remaining defenders to counter the move.|
|Necron warriors and command units move up to engage the defenders|
The game was to carry on for another couple of turns as the Necrons successfully eliminated more Space Marine units, and moved into occupy squares with objectives.
In the game I was allowing up to three units to be located in a square. This did allow more units to be tabled, but I probably lost some of the games appeal by over crowding the units. In the next and final two games of the 6x6 challenge will be using smaller forces.
I am very keen to get to starting my Hundred Years War campaign which is all prepared and ready to go.
