Game 26th April 2010


Got in a game this weekend. Was hung over and played like a muppet pretty much the earlier 2 turns but my opponent was really nice. He gave me a lot of tips and explained his logic behind his moves and the moves that I made.

Great game but I won't want to spoil it for you so go over to the pics. There will be commentary there.

Do leave your comments too!

1750 BA list

Came up my 1st BA list. Wanting to test Mephiston "uber-ness" I included him as the leader of this BA "strike force". The assault terminators will sit in their LR:R and go forward to engage in CC. 1st turn Death coy dreadnought will drop pod assault down to let opponent have something to shoot, while the rest of my fast rhino and razorback  with death coy and assault marines move forward (flat out if passengers can disembark if wreck).
Sanguinary priest will give fnp to the assault marines and terminators. Last squad of assault marines will either deep-strike in or fly around to engage random things. Chaplain will allow the death coy to reroll hit and wounds.

Just got back from Taipei yesterday and I have begun working on my Tervigon. Taking Grim's advice, I am actually building him up as a normal Carnifex but will be using him as a proxy for the Tervigon until it is actually out as a model.

Besides, 4 Scything Talons on a Carni works out as a Tervigon yes? Let me know what your comments are: would you be happy to play against me if I used this?

I will post photos soon.

Great guide on magnetizing a Carni. I am doing the exact thing to by Carni now.

No game for me for this weekend and the next (I'm going to Taipei this weekend for my birthday!).

I'll be playing 2 games on the 25th and will post pics then.

Anyway, my friends played a big 3000 a side game. 3 quick snaps for you guys to satisfy the jitters.

0 Spore Mine @ [0] Pts
Living Bomb

Models in Army: 41
Total Army Cost: 1499

This army will arrive in two main waves.

Deployment: Tyrant Guard and Tyrant with Wings will deploy up front. Closest to the enemy to take the battle. Tyrant will target heavy vehicles early if not HQ units. High threat units will die first.

Tervigon, Biovore and Hive Guard will hang back. HG will try to take out tanks and skimmers as quickly as possible while remaining hidden. Biovore will target infantry units. Tervigon to keep laying Termagants to capture objectives.

Termagant unit will move forward to as middle group to capture easy objectives.

The main assault will come from the Reserved units:
Genestealers (x2), Trygon and Warriors wi Prime will arrive through outflanking - hopefully on the same table edge. Warriors to shoot enemies who can countercharge the Genestealers who will get stuck in - further up the table since the Genestealers can fleet. The Hive Guard need to have popped open transports for my Genestealers and Warriors. The Warriors will charge anything that survives after that. Nuff said!

1500 Nids vs Dark Eldar

Had a good game over this weekend. This time against DE. Good game but I still struggle against armour!! Ughhhh....anyways, I have ordered 3 Hive Guard to shoot down those pesky skimmers and flyers. My big creatures will tear the slower heavy vehicles. I'll post my new list later but here's this week's game.

The photos can actually be found here:

I have included captions at the bottom and you can view my comments there! I won't spoil the ending so go over and take a peek!

Vallejo still water

Bought this to cover up the skull and holes on the realm of battle gaming board. Quite expensive for such a small bottle as the liquid will shrink after drying and you need to pour more to cover the holes evenly. After covering all the holes, i'm left with around 20% of the 200ml. Took 24hrs to dry, but it took 48hrs to fully dry & shrink.

Testing new modelling stuffs not good for the wallet :( 

I'll use the last 20% to make some pond or swamp or maybe use it on model bases.

Batrep 3k IG + orks VS 3k SM + SW

Played a 3k 40k game today with the regular guys. Having just received my battle mission book, wanted to try 1 of the missions inside. We settle with "Prepared assault" as was played out in WD363.

Mission: Prepared Assault
Teams: IG (evils ones) + Orks VS SM + SW (3k /team)
Objectives: 3
Deployment: Prepared Assault deployment

Turn 1 after deployment 

Ork horde prepare to rush the flanks (LR proxy BW)

Thunder wolves at the front lines (hungry wolves)

Vulkan (Right: in black) with tactical marines holding centre objective

Solo Wolf guard survived Rhino explosion

More Tac squads prepare to unleash hell on IG flanks

1st Rank fire , 2nd Rank fire!!

Game ends on turn 5 with the Adeptus Astartes holding 2 objectives.

Battle highlights:
-The game winner unit was the thunder wolf cavalry. The thunder wolves sweep into IG line and kill all the troops, also withering down warboss + nobz unit before a 2nd TWC unit wiped them out.
-A rallied surviving single TWC charge in on turn 5 to kill the last unit of guardsman denying a draw securing a absolute victory for the Emperor's Finest.
-Wolf guards with melta guns and landspeeder with melta suicide push forward to destroy most of orks transport, grounding the ork boyz and using cyclone missles to kill them off.
-Lousy rolls by IG lascannon team failed to destroy most of the rhinos holding troops.
-Master of ordnance damage was negated by cover saves offered by area terrain.
-Colossus was constantly weapon destroyed and stunned prevented it from wiping Vulkan and his tactical squad holding 1 objective.
-Ork mega dread was tar-pit by 6  master crafted thunder-hammer wielding terminators, eventually destroying the mega dread after 6 rounds of combat. 13 shoota boyz came to relief the mega dread but was smash to a bloody pulp by the terminators.
-Hell hounds were destroyed and disabled by missiles, preventing them from flaming the TWC running rampage in IG line.

Funny moments:
-A landspeeder was weapon destroyed by a stray plasma cannon shot and in the following turn was destroyed by a scattering master of ordnance blast.
-Stray rounds did nothing lol... (fan was switch off to prevent any external interference)
-Colossus again survived the battle! suffering multiple, wep destroy, immob, stun, shaken but was not destroyed. Earning itself veteran status. (survived 3 battles - 1x1750, 2x3000)

After battle thoughts:
This mission really favour mechanize armies and a need to push into the centre 2 objectives with more stuffs than your opponent can kill.
