1500pts: Lictorshame Lite vs Dark Eldar

Went to the local club and got a game.  Brought Nids and since I only own the models that make up #lictorshame thats what I brought.  Zack asked to play 1500pts, so I dropped a Flyrant because they might be too mean for 2 at 1500 and the bastion, also dropped a stealer unit to mess around with a broodlord.

Night shields on almost all the vehicles.

We rolled everything randomly, ended up with crusade with 3 objective in hammer and anvil.  He ended up with 2 objectives on his side one in each upper ruin.  I put one in the central ruin.  I got the night fight warlord trait... really useful against dark eldar.  Tyrant got catalyst and warp lance.

Zack won the roll to go first and chose to go first.  Deployed everything other then the flyer and the scourges.  2 units of warriors and a ravager on the left.  Warriors, Incubi and ravager on the top right.

I deployed 3 units of spore mines mostly out of sight or in one cast at extreme range on the edge of the board.  I also infiltrated two lictors in the central ruin.
 I seized!!!!  For no real good reason other than for fun.  I mean technically second served me just fine, meant my flyrant would likely come in after his flyer, and give me last turn for objectives.  But seizing is fun, oh I miss Vect.  So... well I didnt move the spore mines, and so moved the lictors up in the middle ruin and ran a bit too.
 Zack moves up his right flank units and keeps the left flank stationary.  Shoots at the Lictors with lances, disintegrators and splinter weapons.  They both go to ground and one takes a wound.
 Turn 2.  I get everything except the unit of stealers and the rippers.  Mawlocs start landing on the ravager standing next to a raider on the top left.  Two hit and I wreck the ravager with 2 immobilized results, and glance the raider.  Both mawlocs get placed by him in my backfield.  The third mawloc lands between his ravager and raider on the other side and does a hull point before going back into reserve.

One lictor goes in the top right ruin, shoots and does nothing.  5 more with death leaper go in the other ruin and shoot and shoot and do nothing.  Broodlord and his stealers are behind them in that ruin.  Flyrant zooms up and stands up the two grounded Lictors, casts feel no pain on himself and the mawloc and perils, wounds himself, grounds, doesnt wound himself... runs into the ruin.  Both lictors have 10 inch charges onto two vehicles, one makes it the other does not... only one hull point damage though.
 Zacks turn 2 and he gets his razorwing and both scourges.  Scourges land midfield near the tyrant, flyer comes forward into midfield.  He opens up a lot of shooting on the grounded tyrant.  Razorwing, scourges, some raiders.  No wounds... very surprising, lots of 4+ cover saves and some feel no pain.  Ravager tosses 3 wounds on a mawloc.  Starts shooting at lictors and one in ruin top right goes to ground and takes a wound, in the left ruin they pass cover saves and one takes a wound.  Incubi charge the stranded lictor that had attacked their vehicle.  They fail their fear check and the Lictor kills 2, but they finish him off anyway.
 Come at me Bro!
 My other stealers and the rippers show up turn 3.  Place the rippers on the objective in the central ruin. Stealers outflank near the objective in the right ruin.  Flyrant zooms up and picks up the lictor.  Shoots the razorwing down with devourers.  Lictor moves and charges skimmer and dies to overwatch from the guys inside.  Mawloc kills the incubi and wounds the haemoculous.  Rear Mawlocs move up and charge the scourges and only the wounded one makes it... he takes another wound to str 3 elves before killing a few.  Spore mines charge the other scourges and kill 2.  Lictors in the top left drop the raider and assault and kill the warriors.  Other lictors shoot and assault the other raider and wreck the raider pinning the guys inside.
 End of my turn 3.
 Guys shift around on zacks turn 3.  Haemoculous moves forward and uses the agonizer thingy to take the last wound on a lictor pumping up power from pain.  Tanks do a few wounds to the mawloc.  Surviving mobile scourges move towards the lictor in the ruin and shoot and charge him.  Dust settles and he has 1 wound left, still 3 scourges.  Mawloc beats his scourges and the last one flees, but not far enough the mawloc is in hot pursuit.
 Turn 4.  Flyrant jumps behind raider and perils again... wounds himself again... grounds again... wounds himself this time... one wound left.... none from enemy fire.  After a lictor tries to kill the raider the FLyrant shows him how its done.  That lictor tries to assault the warriors but takes too much fire in overwatch and goes to ground to stay safe, genestealers charge instead and kill 2 warriors but lose two themselves.  On the top left side 2 LIctors charge and kill the haemoculous.  And further up a wounded lictor and death leaper charge some warriors... I foolishly go with death leaper first and he takes 3 wounds from overwatch and i even go to ground in the open and he dies... the Lictor with 1 wound left then assaults and though he kills a few warriors they drag him down... silly and greedy should have reversed the order.  Mawloc finishes off the lone scourge, Lictor kills one of the others who stick in combat.  Mawloc charges a ravager and shakes it.  It has one hull point left at this point.
 Not much left for Zack now.  Ravager is looking for cool points and aims at Flyrant but doesnt hit with its shakken result.  Warriors shoot at stealers and kill 2 after they go to ground.  Warriors and stealers do some damage to each other.  Its turn 5 in power from pain token world so warriors are fearless with feel no pain.  Scourges die to Lictor mid board.
 Turn 5 The flyrant decides the stealers are taking too long and enters the fray.  He kills a few warriors but they are fearless.  Lictors finish off the rest at the top of the screen.  Mawloc charges and wiffs on the ravager.
 Ravager is the only free unit he has left and he lights up the mawloc finishing it off.  Tyrant finishes off the warriors.
 And though we didnt roll to see if it went to 6 we played it quickly with the Flyrant shooting off the last hull point on the jinking ravager.
Fun night at the club.  Check us out if you are in the White Plains New York area.  Battle For Salvation Gaming club... we have a yahoo group I think.... and facebook: https://www.facebook.com/battleforsalvation?ref=br_tf
