We can rebuild ourselves. We have the technology. Though we may sleep for a thousand millenia. We will wait, and bide our time, and plot our revenge, and restore our strength, so that we may rule the stars once more...

Our time is now. From the darkest corners of the universe, we advance. Out of the cold blackness of the abyss, we grasp the stars, and hold them tightly. Until we have them all, until we have you all. The living worlds will become our sepulchres.

We shall reap your world, too. The Harvester is come.

Mission 1 - Kalakmul's Necrons vs. The Sons of Mars


Both armies square off on the planet of Minos in a wooded tundra.

Image

The Necron strongpoint.

Image

The central objective.

Image

Landspeeder blitz.

Image

Scout squad disembarked from the landspeeder to flank the flankers, the scarab swarms searching for a hidden tomb.

Image

The central objective comes under heavy fire as the Sons of Mars make it priority number 1.

Image

Cryptek Olmek Zok's squad is dispatched leaving him surrounded by the Space Marines who decide to chop him up and figure out what makes him tick. He is taken back to the space marine fleet for analysis, but something tells me he'll be back.

Image

The scarabs, after overwhelming the scouts, turn a razorback rhino into swiss cheese, making it effectively armor value 2 with entropic strike.

Image

Lost technology was re-discovered by the Sons of Mars. They will have lots of artefacts to study after this battle.

Mission 2 - Kalakmul's Necrons vs. The Outcasts

Both armies square off on the moon Varre in a chaos landscape.


The Battlefield
Image

The Outcasts
Image

The Faithful
Image

A Scarab Swarm marks the tomb's entrance.
Image

In a Veil of Darkness, the Immortals materialize on the left....
Image

...Close Combat ensues.
Image

A "Wraithlord" prevents the Scarabs from swarming into the underground tomb.
Image

Kalakmul presses his warriors forward, shooting the Outcasts as they stride forward.
Image

The Faithful of kalakmul become bitterly entangled with a murder of Wraiths.
Image

The Scarabs, after dragging down the "Wraithlord", enter the tomb an begin their initiation of the reanimation protocols.
Image

Another swarm of scarabs holds off the Immortals as they attempt to gain ground.

Mission 3 - The Neprekh Necrons vs. The Night Lords

The moon of Aemon sees the coming of the Necrons and an assault of Night Lords.

Image

The swift assault of the Night Lords catches the lumbering Necron ranks off guard as the Night Lords quickly grab their 'assets' from right under the noses of those Necrons sent to guard them.

Image

Meanwhile, across the battlefield, uncontested, the Tomb Spyders herd the scarabs swarms toward their secret objective...

Image

The Night Lord attack hits the Necron battle lines hard, and the Necron's reanimation protocols serve them well, but the force of the attack means they will not be able to hold out for long.

Image

More Night Lords disembark to take part in the carnage.

Image

Evil "Jazz Hands" Shrike relishes in close quarters combat.

Image

The demonic bikers from hell are left to scour the battlefield choosing their victims at will.

Image

The Night Lords swarm the Necron's deployment zone and are masters of the battlfield.

Image

The Tomb Spyders protect their flock and drive the scarabs forward against the Night Lords to ensure the Necron's secret objective will be achieved.

Image

The Flayed Ones dig up the dirt and emerge from the ground in the Night Lords deployment zone.

Very pretty pictures, Jon. Even my busted-up army looks halfway decent -- at least those parts of it that aren't missing limbs... :oops:

Remind me again and I'll bring those TH/SS bits I forgot. We need to get you some arms for all your terminators.

I think the bikes are still looking amazing and the chaos marines too.

Both our armies have a glossy finish.

Mission 4 - The Neprekh Dynasty vs. Ordo Malleus

The crestfallen Necrons meet the forces of the Inquisition on the moon of Aemon to attempt to crack open another stasis tomb.

The battle is set.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Next time, I will remember that scarabs have entropic strike, but Brad rolled two 1's for saving throws so it was a wash.

Image

The result for this one wasn't even close. The forces of the Ordo Malleus laid waste to the creaky necrons.

Mission 5 - The Neprekh Dynasty vs. The Tau Expeditionary Force on Aemon


The Immortals prepare to veil out of their deployment zone.
Image

The Stormlord conjures up the night.
Image

The Tau Expeditionary force cruises in.
Image

The necrons advance towards an center objective as the scarabs and spyders creep around the edges of the battlefield.
Image

A large herd of kroot block entrance to an underground necron tomb.
Image

The fire warriors dismount their devilfish to carbine the veiled necron immortals.
Image

The Overlord mounted in his Command Barge wreaks havoc amongst the Tau battle line.
Image

The Kroot herd rushed to their commanders aid as he's assaulted by scarabs, but they are too late...
Image

The necrons surrounding the stormlord stand tall in the center of the battlefield.
Image

Whatever the steersman points at is destroyed!

Thanks. I need to work on my stuff some more. Do a second round of highlighting too. I was going to start painting sections turqoise, but looking at the new white dwarf with the bone color accent necrons, I'm torn. Although some of my units already have yellow and turqoise stripes so I may already be committed to that.

Mission 6 - The Neprekh Dynasty vs. Crimson Fists on Schindlegeist Secundus

The Necton Deployment.
Image

The Crimson Fist Deployment.
Image

Assault Terminators assault the center...
Image

...Smash into the heart of the Necron forces led by the Stormlord.
Image

Immortals materialize in front of the devastators.
Image

Necrons surround the victorious terminators that are roaming free in the center.
Image

The space marines play it safe and stay in their rhinos, biding their time, waiting for the right moment to strike.
Image

A squad of necrons holds off a flanking tactical squad.
Image

Pedro Kantor's rhino explodes as the Catacomb Command Barge zooms overhead and the Overlord takes a swipe at the rhino with his sweep attacks.
Image

The Command Barge is swift and deadly - killing vehicles at will.
