Loved this one. Bone playing Necrons is my favourite combo!

Necrons are, I think, among what I call the “balanced factions,” included with Nids, the new Ynnari, MC(mono codex) AdMech, MC Harlequins, MC Death Guard, MC Thousand Sons, MC Daemons, MC Chaos Space Marines, MC Ultramarines, Orks, MC Eldar after the debuff, etc. Then I think there is the “strong factions” consisting of soups (Aeldari, Imperium, Chaos) and now Tau after the Broadside buff. Drukhari might fit in here they could just be a strong balanced faction. Finally “weak factions” standard MC Grey Knights, MC Blood Angels, MC Dark Angels, MC Vanilla Marines (minus Ultra). Problem is making these factions… Read more »

The only thing id like to see with necrons is some balancing so more stuff is viable

Warriors coming down a point or 2, etc

Bone! Awesome report, but oh man, did that turn into a far worse nail biter than it had to be. Since you had such a grip on the game, it luckily didn’t turn into a loss, but I really don’t think it was worth “sacrificing” all of your characters just to attempt that one card. Keep them behind your lines, relax and then killlllll! 😀

After this and listening to Lawrence on Splitermind (which was great btw) I’m definitely inspired to give Ynnari a go! Great batrep as always, hilarious!

Good game gents! Glad to see Bone with the victor’s laurels at the end. When Spider predicted before he rolled about pulling a Lawrence and then did exactly that I was like here we go again boys in my best Orky voice. Thankfully Bone weathered the unholy dice gods that forever perch on Spider’s shoulders to win in the end.

Mr. Bone,

Quick question. When the Yncarne charged your destroyers at the 1 hour 26 minute mark. You rolled some ones in the overwatch phase shouldn’t you have re-rolled those ones for hardwired hatred or am I missing something?

My feedback, More Ynnari please!,

Im building a Ynnhari list with tons of Wyches, venoms and reavers (for fun) and id love to see them more often with the new rules

Congratz Bone! Finally a win you deserve! Perhaps one day I can come and play you, and the dice Gods shall have a field day, and the game would continue on forever…. for my fortune with dice rolling is such, that the South London Legion have named disastrous dice rolling after me…. #CraigRolls

I’ve bought many, many, many sets of dice in my 5 years return to the hobby, and it got sooo bad I started playing Custodes, so I have a chance of hitting with all those 2’s…!

Good idea to let Bone win so he thinks he’ll be in with a chance next time – you break him harder that way.

Aaaahhh poor bone. The struggle is real!! Would not have been funny if you’d lost mate. Any more hairs torn out and thered be a bolder man standing before us.

P.s. Now there is no excuse but to buy metal aspects with that wad of cash you have and make a proper CWE army lawrence !! 😆

Burst into tears at 1’15”50, telling myself “he’s gonna roll a 1”, Lawrence said it, and he did it!!

Very interesting! I have actually never played against the Ynarri but I have had heard about all the shenanigans that make normal Eldar jealous. Looking forward to see more and learn. Learn how to kill them that is.

awesome games guys! well done on the win Ben. havne’t laughed this hard though a game in awhile. thought Laurence was going to Laurence it away from you again for a minute. awesome to see the necrons take home a tasty win!

Sassy Bone is the best Bone.
Also the mission was supposed to have you discarding objectives with the death of Characters, the slaughterfest of characters could have changed the game with each of you losing those characters all at once!
Wonderful game, congrats to bone for taking it in the end!

Absolutely hilarious game. Great to see the new Ynnariquins in action and look forward to seeing more games using them. I think GW did a decent enough job with their changes to give people an alternative way to play their Aeldari models, which is what I think the intention was for Ynnari. Not simply to be a better version of something that was already good. Also I think if you try to play Harlequins in the same way you normally would (Starweavers and Fusions) yes they do become expensive in Ynnari. Without soaring spite in most cases you are paying… Read more »

Lawrence, it’s a good thing you didn’t take the Solitaire as he can’t be used in an Ynnari detachment, GW are pretty adament that Ynnari cannot be fun in any way.

Bone, your sarcasm was so sharp in this video I was worried you’d cut Lawrence for a while there!

What was the strat or power that gave the Troupe +1 attack?

Gizamaluke
Member

Spider you’ve gotta be more crazy with the Yncarne to get the use out of it! You could have teleported into the middle of the necron forces when he killed those 5 troupe and then killed everything with her!! You could have used your Troupe master to kill a weaker character and then teleported in! You want it moving around like a DBZ character!

How do Tesla work on overwatch? You hit on unmodified 6 but the extra hits go off on 6+. So -1 to hit blocks it? And +1 to hit activates it on 5s even though you’ve missed? How do you guys play it?

ChrisFrosin
Member

Love it!!

Very quick one that’s very easy to miss as it’s hidden in FAQ’s, the Lord of the Storm is an ability and can’t trigger Methodical Destruction. Also a quick one for future reference as it’s easy to miss it too, the Triarch Stalker wouldn’t be able to trigger Methodical Destruction either as it doesn’t have the Dynasty Keyword (and therefore Sautek)

Loving the Yncarne being on the battlefield though! This is a quandary!! Do I Want that AWESOME MODEL to rip up my beloved Necrons?!?!? Errrrm… yeah, kinda! haha!

Matthew

Seems a bit mad that Ynnari get most of the Space Wolves chapter trait plus getting to fight first. Do GW have a lot of love for Eldar and really dislike marines, or am I missing something? Where’s Chef for a good rant about this?

You should immidiately do another Ynaari report to solidify the rules/for experimentation/because they are cool!

Gizamaluke
Member

You forgot the Yncarne provides FNP Lawrence! With your jammy rolls you could have saved a bunch of bikes and the Starweaver I’m sure! I’ve only watched the first couple turns so far but you could have teleported the Yncarne up in your turn behind the bikes after killing the unit of scarabs as you have to get as close to 1″ of where the unit died and the bikes would have been on top of the scarabs. You wouldn’t have been able to charge anyway so it would have been a good little manoeuvre and if you remembered the… Read more »

I suppose there were going to be a few errors with this report as its the first play with ynnari. People have already commented so having to edit this, but was still fun to watch and things will only get better with practice.

You have the book in your hands and you misread the warlord trait for Yncarne. It is forced to take Warden of Souls NOT Master of Death, which instead gives it +1S and +1A when under soul burst AKA real good for the avatar. Would be great to see a list that utilizes united in death, a list with reborn harleys, dark eldar, and asuryani. Hopefully you get more acquainted with the rules.

FINALLY NEW YNARRI!!!! stoked for this video!

Viktor

Lawrence, I strongly disagree with you on harleys benefiting the most from new Ynnari beta codex. 1. While +1 to hit and ASF is a good attribute on paper, there is at least one similar Masque Form that can give you even more (Frozen Stars) and if you have charged you strike first anyway and staying in combat isn’t the best thing for ‘quins to actually use ASF. 2. Stratagems are pretty boring/bland/underwhelming and you lose not only defensive strats for 3++ save and in addition you lose strats to fight twice and masque only starts like the one for… Read more »

Viktor

Ynnari are so much worse now after all the nerfs, in the end right after all other codexes dropped we could see almost all other heavy close combat focus armies getting a stratagem to fight twice, many armies received even a way to shoot twice like tyranids, so that former SfD wasn’t nearly as broken when you could shoot in your opponent’s turn or start a domino chain effect to get 2 turns in one. Yeah before WD beta-codex that list would have been a fair game for necrons but when you admit if you don’t have first turn its… Read more »

Woo, that was a nail-biter. I’m just happy to see Bone win after nearly getting robbed in the turn 3 combats.

Loving the game but Lawrence you can’t use the Harlequin tactical objective cards when running them as full Ynarri, they’re replaced by the ones in White Dwarf.

First, I thought the Ynnariquins are getting destroyed in one sweep but then… I would be stressed out too. xD

Aww Lawrence you forgot about the Yncarne’s ability to regain lost wounds when models die nearby! You could’ve gotten one back from the lost troupe master and then the Yncarne would have lived!

Tamás Tankovits

In the Necrons BIG FAQ1 they reworded the “Methodical Destruction” stratagem to only work on wounds inflicted by attacks. That would mean that it doesn’t work with “Lord of Storm”, or am I misunderstanding it?

Looking forward to seeing how the Yncarne works for you! I’ve been having a lot of success contrary to most people’s opinions; I think the price tag scares them off.

Hey guys, just got really excited to see a Ynnari battlereport! Pleas bring out the Yncarne another time soon… Such a cool model and very difficult unit to use! Regarding the new Ynnari in general, I mostly agree with Lawrence here. Jet-Bikes of all Eldar races are benefitting I think. However, the +1A strategem only works if you have a Harlequin-, a Drukhari- and a Craftworlds-Ynnari unit all together. Pretty difficult to set up! Another thing is the +3 to psychic: It only works if a unit has been killed in this turn already. Only works with things like Reavers,… Read more »

Hey Lawrence — you can’t actually use Acolyte of Ynnead in the psychic phase unless a unit has already been destroyed in that phase. Unbind Souls actually targets an enemy unit, not an allied unit. You cast it on your bikes, rather than the scarabs. and I’m not sure you can use United in Death without also having Drukhari and Asuryani reborn units? Wording is a little iffy on that one… You mentioned bringing the Solitaire, but you can’t have a Ynnari detachment with him in it. I’ve been playing a similar list ever since the WD rules, but with… Read more »
