Highlights and Score Breakdown

  • Seth took first blood!
  • Even though the Necron reanimation protocol has changed in 8th, it’s still hard to take out a unit. They keep coming back. Focus fire and take them out unit by unit if possible.
  • Seth’s army had a lot more troops on the ground, helped him get around easier to the objectives.
  • Poxwalkers again proved to be super resilient, even left on their own. Disgustingly Resilient coming through again.
  • Seth’s dice were rolling red hot this game too. Will that be first game luck or can it continue? Jason’s die on the other hand, were ice cold…

Final Score:
Jason: 5 VP
Seth: 12 VP

Victory for the Necron!
Victory for the Necron!

After 4 rounds, Jason admitted defeat and Seth’s Necrons take their first win in 8th Edition, crushing the Death Guard under their metal feet.
