But it is not solely the domain of combat between the Dark Eldar and the Necrons. Someone else lives on the planet as well.....the orks.
I will be trying to run a campaign mission alongside our normal meets. They'll be in their own subsection, and will hopefully grow and expand overtime.
If you don't care about the fluff, or the rules, and just want to see dice rolling and plastic figures moving about, click here!
The Background Fluff
Overlord Kryztek had made a tactical error. This was not like him. HIs tomb world had come under attack by the Black Templars, and he had only just escaped with a majority of his forces before it was overrun. He clenched his warscythe and swore vengeance upon the Adeptus Astartes in black. But for now he had bigger problems. Damage to the main reanimation centers in his fleet had all but crippled his forces. He needed a new power source to repair and recharge them. One of crypteks brought his attention to the monitor. A extremely strong signal was coming from a nearby planet. This might be the power he was looking for. He quickly formed a scouting party and left to find out...knowing the Templars might not be far behind...
Dark Eldar may assault from a webway portal. (but not from any other type of reserves).
Dark Eldar can choose to roll on the following warlord trait table. (borrowed and edited from various forum and community sources)
1) In the darkness:
Night fighting is in effect turn 1.
2) Use any means:
The Warlord can choose to reroll the combat drug result. He must take the second roll.
3) Born in the shadows:
One use per game. Use during your opponents shooting phase. The warlord and his unit have the stealth special rule.
4) There is no escape:
The warlord and his unit gain crusader.
5) The sweet release of pain:
The warlord and his unit start the game with a pain token. If they already have a pain token, they gain an additional one.
6) A single cut brings death:
One use per game. The warlord and his unit gain preferred enemy during this assault phase.
Necrons may use the dark harvest warlord traits table, without penalties.
Characters can earn experience points for successful missions, and slaying other characters. These points can be exchanged for upgrades. (Such as +1 T, +1 BS, Fearless, etc).
