1st Game of the Year

          Little rough. I have not played in a long time. I normally do not play my Tau. I bought the army 5 years ago and have played 5 games with it max!
         My list for the day.
          Kal's List

         My 12 activates to Kal's 10. Never once took the initiative. Kal and myself both suffered badly from units failing to activate in the first turn.

Elder win the initiative.

          I stopped recording per activation. I did manage to take at least one picture. That of the very end. From the picture and my shot memory these are the details;
My BTS eliminated
Void Spinner eliminated
Falcons (R Flank) eliminated
Falcons (L Flank) broken
Recons marching for objectives
Guardians eliminated
Suits broken

5-1 me! First win against Eldar in 4 years. Kal killed my BTS.

Looking back. I followed my plan. Hardly controlling that "go get them" feeling. I got very lucky 1st turn! Two Eldar units failed to activate, three units doing nothing, and Rangers getting eliminated. 7 of his activation did fuck all nothing. The Avatar never showing up all game helped.

Thank you Kal! Without you being a driving force in Eastern PA Epic gaming would be difficult. See ya at HMGS Cold Wars.
