total (i wish without error Wink )
2000

the scenario : grab and hold (the 2 bases : you have to catch the ennemy base while he's trying to do the same)
deployment : the one that uses opposed quarters with an empty circle zone of 12" in the center.
the lists and batrep follows

the bat rep
he win the toss and i wasn't able to size the initiative ... Crying or Very sad
the board was with the DA stronghold in the middle and divided in 4 parts he placed all his units in the upper right part with a stronghold he made his base and a forrest near the limit of the board. he placed his reapers and 1 unit of ranger in the stronghold the prisme on his right, 2 the wave serpents on the left one with jain zar and company the other with the firedragons on left the the serpents in a forrest he put his gaurdians and in every place between his vehicles (the place was tight !! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil )

i put 1 unit of GKSS in the trench (nearly the only thing that was protective in my side !!) that became my base. the LRGH (with only the librarian) in the right of the trench (not in the LOS of his heavy weapons), the rhino with 1 GKSS in it just behind the LR, GKIS and GM+Termies in reserve. i used GS to make my GKIS scouts as well. and the psyfledread on the left of the fortress no in the LOS (i forgot the split my troop units ... next time i will remember the rules of my codex ! tongue )

finally he put 6 rangers near the fortress out of LOS

He moved his prisme and all his vehicles and so on and fire at my vehicles dread, rhino and LR .... and ... NOTHING !! i was lucky enough to avoid any damage and to my surprise he seemed to play very defensively
so i played very agressively : i moved all i had except the base-camping unit (that did nothing in the battle) dread on the left of the fortress and LR and rhino on the right : i shoot the prisme with the LR and The 2 psycannons in the rhino ... and it's the ultimate psycannon shoot that destroy the prisme !! affraid
the psyfledread immobilized 1 serpent.

Questions :
1 / can i use fortitude against every dammage taken or only against 1 every turn ?
2 / can the librarian uses his power inside a vehicle ? inside a vehicle with ports ?

his second turn : he didn't move nearly anything : he shoot at my LR dread and Rhino : he manages to immobilized my rhino that's all and destroy the LR assaultcannon !! Wink
i pushed my advantage, and decided to risk a DS for my GM and termies, near the end of the board (8" !! affraid ) and made a Hit !! cheers cheers
and used scout for the GKIS to enter them in the side of his board (well made the roll and win !!)

question :
1/ can i move and fire and charge after a flanking ?

we agree that i could so i did (after the shooting phase of course Razz )
so i shoot with dread and libbie a serpent near me in my left and the other serpent with LR and GKSS got down : result turn 2 he had no vehicle left.
i shoot the wrong unit (the guardians instead of the firedragons) and bad luck i killed them all with the cinnie and the SB ... so i coudln't charge them with the GM and termies i shoot the firedragons killed 4 but they stayed

after that my GKIS and termies were the priority target of the reapers the firedragons and everything else : he reaped off my GKIS and divided by 2 (i was lucky) the termies
his banshees with jain zar and rangers shot at the libbie that survived with 1 PV left (i forgot the stave !! Evil or Very Mad ) the battle was on its edge and my camping unit was in a cruise with the Pacific Princess, drinking cocktail with Goffer during the slaught of they brethen !! Wink Razz Razz

i used vortex with the libbie on the banshees and destroy them nearly what was left is Jain Zar and 2 banshees I charged them manage to hit in the same velocity (quicksilver) and killed the remaining Banshees except Jain ZAr that killed the libbie and moved to my GM. may dread destroyed the rangers left and get the direction of the wraith Lord that had lost 1 PV the previous turn by a sure shot of the dread.

when my GM destroyed the firedragons he was attacked by Jain zar and he had just 1 PV left, and finally get down, but that was the 5th turn and he couldn't get to my base.

a 6th was rolled and i manage to shoot to his Wraithlord and charge him with the dread that survived to a 6th eldar shooting phase !! cheers cheers
and destroy him
i repaired the immobilized rhino that could get to its SB range.
with all that was left of my army i shoot the rangers and reapers in his stronghold hoping he'll loos some cover saves and moral roll but he didn't ... so i was a draw !!

I enjoyed reading this Smile

Jain ZAr seemed pretty mad lol

You did well to take down their vehicles pretty quick, they used to bring me alot of frustration.

thanks !
it was an old battle, but i remember making some mistakes : i had to shoot his dragons earlier in the game, cause they are a pain in the A.. and i forgot the 2++ of the stave against Jain Zar : i could have stayed a while ... well a little more !! Razz
and my DS GM and termies should have targeted the reapers in cover ... corollary : i missed incinerators : i should have included more of those nasty weapons ... they work well with the T3 of Eldars.
the rad and psycho grenades worked well though
