I'll get some photos up on here later.

And I woulda ended it earlier if it weren't fer you darn kids and yer meddlin' lascannons!

Well, I comfortably won a 2k game against Orks today, so perhaps the foredooming was only effective for a single game or something. Anyway, I promised you some pictures, and having finally remembered my photobucket password, here they are. No particular order or narritive, but shiny all the same.

Right. Doubles game played today, 3k a player, me and some Space Marines versus a rather bizarre pairing of Eldar and Chaos Space Marines. Ended in a victory for me, and I've arranged to play a full 6k apocolypse game next Friday against one of the player's Tyranid force. Should be fun.

I like those mad-haired hellions! Loving the colourful look of them!The old and new models go together rather well when they're all painted up. Is that a scratch-built razorwing, or a non-gw model? Was that the army of the player that defeated you?

That DE army is indeed the one that defeated me. As for the Razorwing, it is in fact converted out of a Batwing model, as piloted by a certain inhabitant of Gotham City.

Was the pilot Konrad Curze?

Finally managed to play another game with the army today, at GW Aberdeen, now that I'm back up here for uni. 1,500pts game against the Dark Eldar, capture and control, ended in a victory to me (I held one objective, the other was contested).

I wish I could claim elaborate tactics or a genius move on my part, but really all I did was shovel an infantry horde at him until he died. The taskforce took 50% casualties, and lost the vast majority of its officers, but in the end I still won - and that's what counts.

50% casualties and most of the officers dead is well within the acceptable casualties according to the imperial guard play book.

Hmm. Two games on Tuesday, both against Marine armies, both ended with me being defeated. I think in future I shall return to my mechanised lists... much less vulnerable to bolter fire.

Two games played today. The first was a quick 750pts skirmish against some Blood Angels. I don't think a pair of Leman Russ Demolishers are what most people think of when it comes to a small skirmish, but they did the job. End result, 4-1 to me.

Then played a 4,000pts game against an alliance of Chaos Space Marines and... Inquisition forces. Exceptionally confusing lineup, but the game was rather fun - three objectives, and a cityfight board. End result was a draw, with both sides holding one objective and the third being contested - I actually started to run into problems with having enough space for my tanks to move past each other, which was interesting.

Will hopefully play some more games before I return to Uni after Christmas.

If this hasn't happened before (and often), you're not playing with enough scenery.

I think standing on that dark-elder army, without shoes on, would probably kill me via foot punctures and blood loss! Although the worst ones for that, was the plastic Gretchin in the 2nd edition box-set, ouch.

Two more games played. The first was a 1,300pts game against some other Imperial Guard, which I won handidly. He had tanks, I had Chimeras full of Veterans with meltabombs. The wonderful world of "drive straight at that battle tank and somehow win".

Second was a 2,000pts game against the new Necrons, my first time playing them. One objective each, and an exceedingly brutal game - I eventually lost by virtue of having my entire army exterminated, to the last man. Said last man was a Veteran Sergeant who managed to down a Necron Lord in one on one combat with naught but a chainsword, which I felt was rather impressive. I actually made all of my opponents Troops choices explode by turn four, so the utter extermination of my men was the only way he could win. Unfortunately, Necrons do rather well at mass slaughter...

The game was still close, though. Had it ended on turn 5, I would have won. Had it ended on turn 6, it would have been a draw. As it was, it went on to turn 7, and that was just enough time for my opponent to pick off my last guy, tragically cutting short my glory. Ah well.

Highlight had to be Commissar Yarrick being excessively badass. After a barrage of fire, he had just one Stormtrooper left with him, and the two of them were assaulted by a full strength Immortal unit with a Necron Lord leading them. The Stormtrooper died, then Yarrick downed the Lord with his power fist. I won the combat by one, the Necrons failed their leadership, fled and got run down by Yarrick all on his lonesome. No idea how, seeing as he was wounded and outnumbered ten to one, but he managed it anyway.

Sounds like great fun. Chimelta vets are nasty.

Hmph, you're making me envious. I've been itching for a 40k fight some time soon, since my models have sat in suitcases since I moved off to college. Time to dig them out and visit a local game store soon, I think.

You're damn right it is, Mossy! Hop to it!

(And tell us what you've got! And how you get on with the reintroduction to the world of tabletop gaming.)

I have got this old thread's models, roughly. Well, actually that's decently out of date. My signature over on Heresy-Online has links to more recent--but still half a year silent--pictures, including completed bikers, an archive daemon prince, the briefly-mentioned acquisitions from a friend with an Iron Warriors army, etc.
