I had my first game against the Ynnari on the weekend, wow, what a beating I took!
A buddy of mine picked up his book a week or so ago and challenged me to a game telling me to bring a strong list as in his words the Ynnari are broken as hell. So I decided it would be a good time to field a double demi Lion's Blade with all the free gear, something I've only done once before verses a War Convocation. I basically loaded up on min squads with grav (tacts & devs) or flamers (assault), 2 dreads with TL heavy flamers & heavy flamers plus a grav command squad with DA conclave (I know the C:SM is better but I like flavour of Ezekiel) all loaded up in pods with the obligatory scouts out flanking for null deployment.
The DA conclave, Azrael, Int Chap & Command Squad were amazing crushing basically anything that came near them while lasting till the end of the game thanks to perma invisibility & veil of time but my min squads of marines & drop pods just fed the soul burst gravy train.
The game was like learning to play chess all over again, normally you're thinking about combos and follow up moves in your head and how your opponent will react on his next turn or the turn after but against the Ynnari you need to think about the consequences of your actions in the turn you're in! It's a difficult army to fight especially when you're MSU vs MSU, so much carnage!
Regardless of the severe hiding my DA took though it was a thoroughly enjoyable game with massive casualties on both sides. To be honest my only gripe from the game had nothing to do with the game itself with Azrael not having eternal warrior and copping a Gaze of Ynnead to the face (str 10 AP 1 ignores cover & invuls witchfire)... really GeeDubs?
