Battle Report 3 - Tyranids vs. Shitake Craftworld Eldar

Turn 6

The beasts swarmed forward, engaging the Eldar. The Hive Tyrant, cut off by the carefully positioned Wave Serpents, was forced to divert toward the bunker while the writhing mass of Ripper Swarms advanced ahead. The Falcon no longer nearby, the Mortigaunts resumed their path towards the target base, their hunger would wait until more morsels could be found ahead.

Again, the living cannons of the Carnifex and Hive Tyrant roared and one of the Wave Serpents crashed to the ground. The Carnifex, roaring with rage and gushing vital fluids, charged the Falcon, slamming its bulk into it alongside a brood of Genestealers. The Carnifex flailed wildly in its rage, but the Genestealers managed to slice through the engines of the craft and bring ti crashing down. The Lictor rushed forward to engage the Warp Spiders, but they were wary and none fell.

The Waveserpent darted forward and fired one last shot at the Carnifex as the steel-rending might of the Hive Tyrant approached. The Carnifex, sensing this, spun about and the energy bolt punched through the folds of its neck. It fell back onto the wreckage of the Falcon, it's bright red blood dousing the flames of the Falcon. The Warp Spiders summoned up their courage and attacked the Lictor, but were startled as the beast struck them down with startling ease. The cowardly trio of Howling Banshees would be the only ones to leave this field alive, but the remaining beasts would soon hunt them down. This planet was no longer the domain of the Eldar, it was food for Hive Fleet Phage.
