Had a small 750 pt game yesterday - the start of our winter campaign. I played The Gauntlet mission as attacker with a small scouting party of Ravenwing led by Interrormancer Librarian Gariel (affectionately known as Garry) against some necrons. I think this is actually the first time I didn't take photos at a game, silly me!
One of our friends who doesn't live locally has been doing some writing for us based on our games.
He started this during our last summer campaign which he was actually here for. But to keep him involved I took plenty of notes for him, and I wrote this to start him off (be kind, not a writer, first time writing fluff):
"A Ravenwing scouting party led by Interrormancer Librarian Gariel were deployed for a night patrol mission to explore the ruined city. They split into two groups to cover more ground for the scouting operation. The night passed uneventfully and the place appeared completely abandoned. It was dark and stealthy work, perfect for the sleek black forms of man and mechanical steed. They were on schedule to meet early in the AM at the centre of the ruined city. In the dark grey pre-dawn gloom each party crested a summit of rubble and ruin and confirmed visual contact across the city square.
Gariel sensed something and with a gesture made them halt. There, down in the ruins of an ancient cathedral for unknown gods, a small detachment of undead mechanical Necron warriors were marching forward with unknown purpose. There was no hesitation, no discussion. The Ravenwing ambushed the foul xenos with wordless agreement. Their engines revved as they accelerated to battle speed to perform a pincer attack maneuver to block the skeletal warriors from whatever destination they had in mind.
As they rushed forward Gariel noted that behind the sea of warriors was a Necron Lord and Cryptek directing their machine brethren forward and augmenting their neon green energy weapon attacks with their strange orb tech. They were followed by a Stalker in the rear, a large and strange spider like machine, all sleek hard lines and deadly curves that moved in a smooth and graceful way. Perhaps that could be ignored. He decided the leaders must die and their warriors be scattered. He unleashed warp fire and smote 3 Necron warriors down in a single blast. He gifted Squad Crowley with righteous repugnance so their hammers would furiously crush true.
The Ravenwing fell upon them with vicious bolter and plasma fire. Because of the dark, the shifting mists and smoke, and difficult city ruins terrain to traverse, they found their targets elusive and missed many shots. But the attack was swift so they only faced scattering of overwatch fire as their bikes slammed into the mass of metal bodies. They got to work with roaring chain-swords and vicious Corvus hammers."
