board. had a crashed gunship in the middle, with a destroyed tank of to one end. opposite the tank was a bilding and to the right of the tank was a large bunker. on the other side of the board to the right of the tank was a stone circle thing. in between the bunker and stone circle there was a second bunker. on the opposite side of the large bunker was a third bunker. there were several small building things scattered around.
deployment:

necrons go first: deploy his lord and two warrior squads between the tank and large bunker. the immortal squads were deployed on the large bunker. the monolith was deployed between the large and smaller bunkers along with a warrior squad and the wraiths. on top of the small bunker the two heavy destroyers were deployed. in between the bunker and the stone circle the destroyers and scarabs were deployed.

END GAME...

end of a really great match, with a fun opponent. score at the end was 10 to 5, a solid win for the eldar.

Analysis:
i think that my list performed rather well, apart from the dire avengers getting busted up good and proper in turn 3. the main killer in the entire game was the autarch and his entourage of spears. despite heavy (and unlucky) losses early in the game, they really pulled through, wiping out 5 squads in total all by themselves. the farseer was largely redundant as doom really didn't help all that much in the entire game, and he was an awful shot with his spear, missing all three times he used it. as for my opponents list i have no idea as i dont play necrons. if any one who does would like to comment on his selections that would be great.

C&C as usual people. thanks for reading this so far!!

p.s. i'll try and write some fluff for the battle at a later date.
