Sorry.. little progress. Working on finishing all the checks on the legs. Every weekend has been filled with other activities. Finally it's back to normal.

I did manage to play a game yesterday. Was invited by the local gaming club to participate in a Apoc game though It really wasn't Apoc. All the players had to use the FOC. In fact there were very few LOW ( only one Imperial knight on the table) 4000 pts per person. Ended up 12000 vs. 12000 pts. Good balanced armies and no real deathstar units or cheese formations.

Armies were Necrons, Demonkin and Orks vs. Imperial Guard/Tau, Mechanicus/Space Marines and Tau. Managed to only get 2 full turns in and was very even game but was leading towards a 'Bad guys' win.

Most interesting was how good the Mechanicus were. They held the line against the onslaught. Luckly we had Orks on our side and they soaked up a ton of firepower while the Necrons and Demonkin concentrated on taking out the IG big guns.

MVP of shooting - Doomsday cannon which destroyed a fortifications and Basilisk's.

MVP of CC.. the Mechanicus 'chicken walkers' which took out a Bloodthrister' ( it was shot up but it was enough)

Tons of pic. so I'll post a few here in the next few days.

Looking forward to seeing the pics. Both the chicken and crab walkers are supposed to be quite good, at least for specific tasks. Hope you had a good time.

As promised.. Deployment for our 12000 pt game… the game table was set up in a U shape. All the ‘Bad guys’ were the attackers and must deploy in the inner table edges.

Moving around the inside edge


The right table was bare of Imperials. So the bad guys went for the reserve objective uncontested.

Looking from the imperial side

IG/ Mechanicus Gunline

We thought we get shot up moving in, but we stole the initiative and dominated the fist turn because of it. Our first turn..

Our plan was to sweep the left side. Orks would provide fodder in the center table and then move our combined forces to the right. Orcs taking it to the Tau.

Peekaboo Bloodthurster- moving to engage the chicken walkers…

More tomorrow

Tau targeting a Naught

Orks screened by cultist.. Who knew!

Grot Tractor cannons having a good time

Robots anyone?

Droppod immobilizes the Maulerfiend, Ad mech wipes the Dlord.

This corner goes away at the end of the shooting phase due to the Doomsday Cannon

Ork might actually get into CC.

Birthday resulted in some eventual Lamenters.

A box of New Devastators and a Box of sniper Scouts. Now to find some time to paint.

Happy belated birthday, Solar (and the rest)!

Huge battle looks like it was a lot of fun. I've always loved playing those giant Apoc Games myself. Pity I never got to very often!!

Looking forward to seeing more yellow and checkers in the future. Hopefully you can get some paint time soon!

Thursday night game tonight. Depending on who shows up and if we want to do a group event. I'll be once again fielding my Lamenters. Oddly the list I'm taking still requires me to proxy figures. No matter how many or what figures I have I always seem to be missing some variation or load out. This time I went with a quantity list with some Grav cheese,

2 Libbys in term armor
5 five man Tac squads with a mix of plasma and Melta special weapons. 2 in Dpods. 3 RB
2 all grav cannon Dev squads in DPods ( Libbys go here)
2 3 man Bike units with all Grav.
5 mans scouts with SR.
2 stormtalons with LC and AC.

What I know will be there are Tau, and Eldar Wraithhost w WK/Harly list ( first time seeing this) and either Orks or Demonkin.

My units will disappear fast so I'm hoping to play a grab objectives quickly game. Still I have a lot of Alpha strike 1 turn ability. but not much lasting the whole game units.
My Demi company rules allow me to ignore 1 to miss on a turn and I'll probably go with UM chapter tactic for some additional re-rolls.

Should be interesting. Have you painted the grav cannon devs?? I don't recall seeing them.

No.. got my first box for my b-day and they only come with 2. so I'll have to get a few more boxes. I still need to do a few normal Grav gun guys as well.

Got an additional 5 scouts and a LS storm ( now makes 2 )but no telling when I'll get to these . I have the centurions to finish and tons more Orks.

I need to win the lottery and lure Ramos away just to see if what I currently have gets painted before I pass from this earth.

Great game last night.. Played with Yellowbeard against a Tau & IG/GK army. YB played a wraithhost Eldar army and he wipe the board almost by himself. I lost about 4 Marines and had times where I had nothing to shoot due to the Eldar cleaning out all my targets.

What a powerful list. and it had no scatterbikes.

Next week we are blessed with another visit from Gits so we'll have another 2 v 2 battle.

Now how to get some time to paint!

Speaking of which... any idea on points? I've got a 1500 pt army I'd like to try out (just a suggestion).
