Sadly no pics.. I was ill and left it him to play a 3 way game against a balanced Ork Army and a new Grey Knight Army.

By turn 2 the GK's had wiped out the Ork army and then did the same to the SW army. Truely there is no balance anymore.

SO.. the local group was putting on a 5 vs.5 game ( turned out to be 4 vs 4) No Apoc. units but LoW were allowed.
Imperial vs Non Imperials. Ended up facing 9 Demons/Demon Princes all but 2 wern't flyers. 2 Giant Nids. Tons of Chao's Marines. 4 Necon barges, 2 command barges and 4 flyers. 2 Helldrakes.

Worst yet a Trancendant Ctan. Least to say we were pretty much wiped out by the end of turn 2. Our only LoW, an Imperial Knight was wiped out by the Ctan in one shot. Just one of the Ctan attacks are 6d6 S8 AP1. When the knight blew it created a apoc sized blast. Anything it flys over takes a D hit and it move 18 in. not hampered by terrain. Add a hellstorm D template for it's 2nd attack. ( the Apoc one ) and 1/2 of our army went away. Taking it out is almost impossible.. T9 S9 W6 and 8 attack in close combat. Yikes.

Big Game pictures. Could not Possibly explain what went on for the 2 hour per turn battle. Nice thing.. 90% of all this Terrain used in the game was all make by me. Some made 15 years ago. You can see the new stuff as well.

Our center defensive position. Note... we had 4 Vengeance batteries that proved useless against the tide.

Our right side

Our enemies center. Note the Necron gun Platform on the highway overpass.

Our far left flank. Totally exposed as we didn’t have enough bodies to cover that flank.

This is what it looked like after turn one! Note Ctan in frount of my Land Raider.

Wow. Impressive. And,yet,somehow, depressing. Sounds like a frustrating experience.

Yeah, not much fun to be had in either one of those games. Nice work on the terrain though.

Why did you show up to an apocalypse game without your own heavy hitters? Where's the titan or squadron of knights? I feel like you should own something that only sees the battlefield in an apocalypse game. I didn't even see a baneblade or similar super heavy.

Great terrain, by the way.

Thanks, I like a lot of terrain and at least most of it made the board consistant.

Couldn't bring titans. LoW units were acceptable but the only one available to SM was the Tunderhawk. I don't have one. Don't think it would have mattered. What we really needed was 2000 pts of Grey Knights.

Nothing Imperial is capable of taking on that Ctan the way it was purchased. A badly thought out and unbalanced unit.

On to normal gaming. Me and YB are going SW vs. SM tonight at 1650pt. After learning the Necrons have no trouble taking out the SW, I decided out with the cheese and man up!

The transcendent ctan is the single unit we have banned for apoc games. It is straight up broken, and no fun to play against, even with super heavies and titans it takes several dedicated turns to kill it.

I talked to the player who set up this game and if another gets done in the future they will probably ban it as well.

Last nights game went well. Instead of me playing against YB, we had two of the regular guys wanting to get in our game . So we rolled off and YB and I were teamed up against a GK player and a Crimson fist DP list. We won 10 to 5. thou it worked in our favor that the majority of the GK terminator force didn't show up till the last turn. Without them we held our own. Otherwise I'm pretty sure we would have lost. Cleansing flame is powerful. By no means determined, but to those whom say the GK got nerfed. In the games weve seen or played against them they wiped out close to double their points.

Back to painting.. Almost finished with my GMS trades. 6 more bikes. Bunch of Sternguard bits in the work as well. I also got some new Necron and Ork models on the way adding to my other armies.

These are some very nice Lamenters! And that yellow is impressively bright.

Thanks BJ. Yellow always looks bright next to all the dark colored terrain and other figures. My earlier stuff was much brighter. My later work have more of a brown rust yellow.

Been a busy summer. Lots to do before winter. So what about progress.. I've managed to get enough bikes to do 2 nine man squads with an Attack bikes. Also manage to get 2 bike of all the special weapons except for the flamer. I still have 3 more bikes slated for some sarges with different load outs. This should end the bike purchases forever! Now to start priming and finishing the ones I have.

Next didn't have enough time to do some painting but got time bit by bit to start assembling some more marines. I have lots of bits, most I have no idea of what I'll do with them. So I channeled Graven and built a 4 man Honor Guard for my not yet built Chapter Master. 2 of them using BA Sang guard torso's, Sternguard legs, Winged Ravenguard Helmets, and Grey Knight Force Halberds ( counts as relic weapons ). Banner bearer made the same way as well without the Halberd . A Champion with 2 handed GK sword and shield made from a Dreadknight plate. While at it I assembled a 5 man Vanguard squad consisting of 2 pairs of LC, 2 PS 1 with Plasma Pistol the other with Grav pistol and a sarge with PS and Plasma pistol. Most likely put them with JP's

Both the Honor guard will need to be painted differently than the normal Lamenter Yellow. Want to stay away from an all metallic look. The Vanguard will be the Normal yellow but with white helmet face masks like my sternguard...

Looking to get these painted before the 18th as Git and I have a game day session planned. Lamenters vs. Mantis Warriors.


Plan.. This winter since we are not participating in the Team Tourney this year at Adepticon, thou stll planning on attending; thus freeing up all the time I'd be making a display, is to finish all the half done and odds and end for the Lamenters, Eldar and Necrons, So as to start next years Chaos Marines Project. Oh and get more games In!

I feel good about taking a break for a year (from the TT)... it's such a demanding project and you've been carrying the majority of the load (display) since we began. I look forward to a more social experience with a lot of good gaming around the corners!

Though disappointed in no TT, I definitely agree with Gits. You've been absolutely nuts with all the work you do on the displays each year, and its great that you can now take this time to wrap some other stuff up for your own armies!

Suppose it works well for me too, as I might actually get some paint on my own stuff before AC 2016!! (haaaaaa riiiight )


Over that weekend, we definitely need to figure out a mini-event for the Wardens. Not so much a MOAB, but a mini battle between us all



Looking forward to your new stuff!!

Great idea Ramos. I actually really liked the little one-on-one battles we did for a warm-up last year on Friday. More fun hanging out/gaming with each other... less stress. I'm all for it!
