Battle Report Teaser: Eldar vs Space Wolves with Grey Knight Allies

Hey all, themightysquig here bringing you another Battle Report Teaser. This week, Son of Adam went head-to-head with Matt, owner of Stomping Grounds. Matt brought a Space Wolves drop pod army with Grey Knight allies to square up against SoA’s Eldar list.

It was a close game, as drop pods can cause a lot of trouble for SoA’s Eldar. Does SoA overcome his list disadvantage? Does Matt give SoA his first loss since the launch of this blog? I’m not going to tell you (haha, take that, internets!). Instead check out these pictures from the game and make sure you check out the Battle Report and Strategy Follow-up for this game as they get posted.
