14:40 You claim that night fighting stacks with stealth and shrouded, however, night fighting just grants you stealth and stealth does not stack with itself. regardless you had a 5+ cover base 3 from stealth and shrouded so you still had a 2 cover.

Just remember that stealth does not stack with stealth in the future. A lot of people watch these battle reports as a learning experience, so I felt I needed to correct this.

@Benzi1920 Konrad Curze has the Master of the Legion rule, so his list was legal.

I think the elder player should be choosing which wound pool should be allocated first. When he got bladestorm 6's Josh chose the order the wounds were allocated. That said nice batrep guys. Nice to see a more 'fluffy' Elder list for a change.

Around 1:12:00 in the combat with Cruze, the avatar, and the Wraithlord, Josh was striking at the avatar with all his attacks, but the avatar was in a challenge so all the attacks have to go outside the challenge. Josh should've been hitting against the T8 Wraithlord.

josh: feel like you should be a lot faster with your army terror assault allows drop pod assault. get up close and personal with terror squads rather than hide them I know you like fluff all about that close combat

30k vs 40k matches are always nice to watch. 3+ vs differently painted 3 gets old. Please do more, Josh!

I may have some advices for you Josh. Did you infiltrate your Terror Squads? It might have been an idea for getting your guys accross the field quickly. Also, I feel that taking the Terror Assault RoW is a bit difficult in a 2000 pts list since you have to take 3 Terror Squads and this is pricey. You might have needed extra firepower to take out these annoying rangers and the Fire Prism. A bunch of terminators with teleportation transponders and equiped with combi-meltas could have created some havoc amongst his vehicles. The game was mostly you advancing slowly and getting slowly withered down to oblivion. By destabilising your opponent, it would have gone better for you I think. I hope this will help.

@Izathel Yes, 30k isn't balanced with 40k armies. We get some nice units and weapons, but buying the initial squads is very expensive pts wise. Adding more models to the units is typically cheaper, so the game encourage very large units. That means that playing 30k under 2000 pts is difficult and the army list strength only starts to really be felt at 2500 pts and beyond. So, going against Eldars is a very tough match, but playing against Orks should be fun normally.

30k really doesn't seem intended to play vs. 40k lists. It is painful to watch footslogging eldar but even they were outclassing a 30k list. Though I don't know much about 30k, maybe the Night Lords list just wasn't strong?

@coolguyswhositathome. Illic has the sharpshot special rule which makes all his shots precision, not just on a to hit roll of 6. He confers this to a unit of rangers he joins.

CoolGuysWhoSitatHome (Over a year ago): - delete
Unless the Eldar have a specal run that I dont know. Precision shot does not allow you to shoot at any model in a squad. You target the squad and on any to hit roles of a 6 you may choose a target in that squad. If that target is eligible for a look out sir you may still take it. I don't know what page number it is i looked it up in the glossary of the electronic edition.

Well, I got all excited for nothing. Another batrep where the outcome was determined as soon as the lists were made. 30k just isn't competitive at the same points value with eldar. And eldar didn't even cheese it at all.

i have always wondered that MWG has such beautiful models, but such ratty tapemeasures...lol, just an observation...keep up the great batreps

Tektonik (Over a year ago): - delete
@Sindinista holofields is a 5+ save against all attacks, unless the vehicle is immobilised. There is nothing in the rule that states the vehicle has to move in order to take the save

hulkhodn (Over a year ago): - delete
would be nice, if you could do a better job on white balance. As a photographer stuff like this redish tone bucks me, then again, maybe no one else cares....

Tektonik (Over a year ago): - delete
Does anyone know where the guys got the eldar terrain from? Mainly looking at the walkways/platforms?

jakediewald (Over a year ago): - delete
Before I even watch this, YAY, 30k again, finally!

Where did all of that sweet Eldar terrain come from?

josh: sorry also allowed deep strike terminators

Sindinista (Over a year ago): - delete
The holofields rule says you get a 5+ invuln if you moved the vehicle in the previous turn, so can you take a holofield save turn one...? The Fire Prism probably had a 5 cover save anyways, but it's interesting.

I agree with lizardqueen, this was a very disappointing batrep. "More 30k battle reports coming soon." ( Two weeks later ) and its this content. Lol

Top-Bear1 (Over a year ago): - delete
Benzi1920 - I think that because Konrad Curze has the "Master of the Legion" rule Josh can choose a Rite of War. However i don't think that you can attach Apothecaries to Terror Squads (which is a shame ).

Tektonik (Over a year ago): - delete
When Illic's group of rangers shot into Curze, any 6s to wound would have been ap2, so you should have either LOS'd thone, or only taken a cover/inv save

Benzi1920 (Over a year ago): - delete
josh, my man, your list isn't legal since you do not have a praetor for the master of the legion.
