BAT. REP. DA vs NECs and 1K

Well to lead off I hit 1000 hits yay.
Anyway on to the game, this is just a quick comprehensive and there are no pics as my new base was involved and It's a secret. Here goes.
Setup-take and hold and four corner's with center objective setup. 1250 points.
I took my usual DA list but dropped a few extras to get the beefed up crusader put in.
Lach took the list that fought my scouts, which gives a good setup point.

++Having received the news that several vehicles and many of the newer members of 10th company fell on a mysterious tomb world, Belial pondered over the reports of action. Seeing it as a secondary target to other more ominous threats in the sector he began to discard the file. Then he saw it, the death report of captain (insert name I haven't named them all yet) and his entire squad. Furios with the loss of one of his captain he set out to the armory. No retribution would be given to the foul xenos, the thought hit him and he lay down his sword and removed the twin lightning claws from there case. After assembling 17 of his finest and Belials personal chaplain the team set off to the last known coordinates of the lost captain. Arriving several weeks later on the planet Belial set down on the last known location and found the Necron lot attempting to excavate and ancient relic (old f-15 cockpit and downed pilot awesome objective btw). The field was set Belail drove ahead into cover in his crusader. The necrons saw him and attempted to thwart his actions. The necron monolith began its move towards the crusader. All would be to no avail. The crusader suffered only a minor systems malfunction and lost its targeting systems. Then Belial disembarked and his honor gaurd let loose the power of the emperor on the necron lord and his squad. Few would fall but there cleansing was not in shots it would be in hand to hand death. One of Belials 12 squads also entered the battle and began its journey towards the objective with no enemies wihtin range. Belials team hit the nexrons hard and swift. The loss of a member spurred great fury and the necron team was destroyed. The lord survived the assault barely. The monolith retargeted forgetting the crusader and attempted to destroy Belial, the show would go amiss and the Belial set his sites upon a group of warriors hiding on a hill. The Necron lord would bring several of his fallen squad back and they join up with the nearest squad of warriors. The Lord uses his ancient witchery and teleports himself and some warriors away from belial. They land behind the other squad of terminators, and after a bad teleport several members of the necrons team perish to the warp. 1 terminator falls to shooting as a squad of wraiths appear and assault them. The fighting was fierce and 1 wraith is crushed. meanwhile Belilal drives his team forward and assaults the waiting necrons on the hill. The crusader retargets the monolith and a super shot with the melta destroys the xeno temple. Belial tears into the xeno scum and lets one warrior live long enough to run. It is soon shot down by a bolter as it attempts to flee the battle. The necrons attempt to rally but to no avail. Belials fury shall not be stopped. several more close combat battles will be fought as well as another squad of terminators joining the fight. The two squads meet the wraiths and warriors head on and with the loss of 1 manage to destroy the warriors the pesky wraiths hang on long enough to let there lord escape. The crusader commander attempts to drive him down but misses. Belial watches from the hill as his squads mop up and the last remaining necrons begin to leave the field. He cares not for the relic and decides to destroy the world from orbit. He leaves the field with a sense of justice served.++
Ok that was my attempt at making it a story and not a point by point article. 1st try I'll get better I promise. The game was great fun. I was just happy to take the mono down. It ended in a draw cause stupidly i smelled blood and sent my 2nd squad of terminators into c/c instead of holding the objective (dumb). It ended in turn 5 on a dice roll of 1. we played out 6 for fun and I would manage to take the wraiths down and the lord got runover in death or glory by the crusader. Big thing I learned was remember that LRC's are assault. I let Belial and his boys take a round of shooting because i deployed to move and shoot. I forgot he can assault out of the crusader on the turn it hits the enemy. Since Lach and I do not concede to what ifs I won't list a who won by points etc. It was a draw and was a fun game and as Lach. put it he finally didn't phase out. I think he had fun too even though I know he hates the termies. He is learning at a huge rate how to take down my boys and I'm having to learn new ways to take on his necs each time we play.
