Wouldn't you know it, I just came home from playing 2 games of Kings of War and today was the first time I didn't take any pics.

So here's one from last Saturday

A little over a week ago, my Desert Rats went up against my friend's Afrika Korps in our second game of Version 4 FoW:



I ended up winning by breaking his formation the same turn I captured an objective.

Not much gaming recently with summer weather, vacations etc. Last was a kings of war game where my Kislevites crashed into an Ostland army, breaking through on a flank and continuing to roll up the southern curs. Seen here are the Sons of Ursun supported by Ungol horse archers forcing a breakthrough against the Ostland spearmen.

Orcs vs Undead in a game of Kings of War in 15mm scale (using CM instead of Inches).

The game was 1500 points and it was the Relic capture senario.



I was using Orcs and I was defeated, 3 relics to 0 in the end :(.

Before deployment in my last 1500 pt dropzone commander game. Did not take pictures since the one player's army is primed gold and it was an intro game for a friend of mine so we set up the table fairly cool. I try and set the table up in a theme for when we play - this was the "edge of the city" vibe and deployed with a major advantage in it.

Our game of This is Not a Test (Necromunda and Mordheim style skirmish warband game heavily inspired by Fallout 3) from last Saturday.

New California Republic Rangers
Spoiler:


Mormon Tribals
Spoiler:


Deployment
Spoiler:


Early casualties for the Tribals
Spoiler:



The Tribal Warlord goes ham.
Spoiler:


A Powder Ganger suicide bomber scales the wall but is instantly gunned down by the Tribals.
Spoiler:


The NCR Ranger Sniper's rifle jams.
Spoiler:


Another Ranger trades fire with the survivors on the roof of the watchtower.
Spoiler:


The Tribal scores a hit with her ZINGER (exotic Nano-bot weapon that causes Relics to malfunction) on the NCR Heavy Trooper, causing his power armour to malfunction and lock up just as the Warlord bears down on him.
Spoiler:


The Warlord is gunned down in a hail of assault rifle fire from the two Rangers accompanying the Heavy Trooper, saving him from the Warlord's armour piercing force blade (basically the Proton Axe from New Vegas: Old World Blues).
Spoiler:


A Powder Ganger charges into melee with a Mormon but fails to kill him. So the NCR remotely detonates his suicide vest, killing them both.
Spoiler:


A Tribal tries to pick his way through some rubble but is gunned down.
Spoiler:


Final Turn: one of the Tribals is picked off by the NCR Sniper.

Just saw your post Dread - and short of some vehicles? No, we just run old codices. We may eventually do some for the Tyranid (though, shocking to some people - they play really well with only 8-10 entries etc.). The Eldar codex has more entries than the current one, so it's not a big deal.

The game I played last night was a test of my convention scenario, for my Old West game, Shoot N' Skedaddle.

The train station was blown up by Outlaws through the clever use of prostitutes, tunnels, and dynamite.

The Boy is still using half my army while he builds and paints his Salamanders. Yesterday we divied it up by age. He could only take units younger then him, I took the older stuff. As he’s 11, that’s somewhere in the 4th edition era. Unfortunately that meant he got to take my freshly painted LRR out for it’s first test drive. It was a pretty close game, with him dominating the midfield for most of it. But age and wisdom took the day, with an 8-6 victory for the Ultramarines. He could have won, if only that last tac marine camping the objective in the open could have survived my last turn of fire. But as that fire was the full attention of my undamaged classic LR, his hope for victory evaporated in a few zillion megajoules of coherent light from the Godhammers.

Still, a close fought game where everyone had fun.

A little late getting this up (we had the game a few weeks ago), but a fun one

Tau (me) vs. Necrons (my son). The DeffKopta seen flying over the battlefield was supposedly recording it for the "Da Ork Battle News Netwark", and belong to my younger son's Ork army. We used the Open War deck to generate the game set-up. Long-end deployment, our objective was to recover a plasma reactor from a downed Aquila Lander that had crashed in no-man's land.

Battlefield
Spoiler:




Tau forces (1000 pts) : set up on the left

Spoiler:


Necron forces (1000 pts - sorry it's blurry) : set up on the right

Spoiler:



The Tau suits rushed forward to initially seize the reactor, only to lose their commander to a counterattack from Wraiths and two squads of Deathmark assassins. The Fire Warriors dug in, supported by a broadside, keeping the majority of the Necron army occupied. Meanwhile, railgun armed pathfinders did their best to whittle down the Wraiths that had seized the reactor. The fleeing wraiths were pursued by the Tau Crisis suit bodyguards who sought to not only retrieve the reactor, but avenge their fallen leader. Assisted by a depleted squad of vespid, the Tau managed to destroy the last wraith on a rocky outcrop mere meters from escaping the badlands.

As the plasma reactor rolled from the grasp of the last fading Necron wraith, Ork Warboss Wartusk stepped from the nearby bushes and siezed the container. With a wide grin, the Ork boss ordered the nearby Deffkopta to wrap up it's coverage, moments before the big bosses Teleporta transported him back to the safety of his bunker. His ploy had successfully worked - the rumors he'd spread about the reactor had been picked up by enemy forces and they'd dropped the reactor at his feet, just as he hoped they would. With the reactor in hand, now his mewling Mekaniac no longer had any reason he couldn't finish the Stompa he'd been itching to unleash on the nearby 'umie forces...

Played 1000 points of Alpha Legion (me) vs. 1000 points of Iron Warriors last night at my FLGS. This is top of Turn 1 where I used my Forward Operatives stratagem to deploy a unit of 20 Possessed Marines right up against his battle line. I ended up winning the game (relic mission), but during his last turn he ended up sniping my Chaos Lord with four krak missiles to the face, so I say he got a moral victory.

Turned out to be a bad call for the eldar. This was turn 3 or so. A turn later, the BA player was down to about six marines and I had some of that row of Storm Troopers (not "Scions") in the fray. By 5th turn we managed to kill Whatshername and took the table.

I visited your blog. The conversions are good, but as you say, the greenstuff is rough. I think you should try to sand it once it is set to get a smooth finish.

I visited your blog. The conversions are good, but as you say, the greenstuff is rough. I think you should try to sand it once it is set to get a smooth finish.


That's not a bad idea, may take you up on that. Also been trying out acrylic filler (decorators caulk) to help with touching up cardboard scratchbuilds, it smooths way easier than greensftuff

Assembled second knight a bit though now stop before magnets arrive. Then got a game of Sons of Horus vs Blood angels. Tournament coming up tomorrow so tried the onslaught with ambush deployment that's 2nd game of tomorrow. Horus led defence against ambushing blood angels. I was tad too aggressive at the start so we basically traded squads at first. Then I tried too ambitious move and split justicaerin and Horus to deal with 2 threats but maybe 4 cataphract terminators+praetorian was too much for Horus...Especially when you fail charge roll and then eat 7 S7 AP2 shots which promptly causes 3 wounds.

In the end it was up for whether blood angels could clear my tactical squad from objective on their deployment zone worth 5 VP for me. If I can keep them out draw, if not I lose. Alas bunch of tacticals without even a live sergeant was no match for 7 angry blood angels with additional CCW to boot.

And yeah we need to work on terrain Board is fully not done yet and only little scifi themed so wild west buildings etc whatever are used as well. I'll be hoping to do some terrain work next month now that sons of horus painting is on good stage.

Pic shows starting situation. Horus at dead center as due to being LOW he had to deploy first so was worried if I put him close to one side BA promplty puts everything except maybe rhino's on OTHER side thus rendering him struggling reach anywhere! Main combat was at bottom with predator, big tac squad and both terminator squads and 2 praetorian. My big tac squad, praetorian and Justicaerin basically took that side out but leaving most of Sons of Horus dead. From top 2 rhino mounted tac squads and support squad punched through my rearguard tac squad taking out vindicator and eventually forcing sicaran to flee and took control of objective they were after and then one tac squad went in and in last turn charged remnants of my big tactical squad on objective on bottom-right of picture.

Justicaerin were murder slaughtering tactical squad and terminator squad losing just 2 of their members before immobilized predator got 2 more dead leaving last one just trying to keep himself alive rather than try some brave solo charge against bazilion blood angels

My opponent was bringing Tau, so I thought it would be fun to try out a Supreme Command detachment of Genestealer Cult, complete with 20 Genestealers. A lot of lessons learned, especially when it comes to trying to bog down flying tau infantry. 3d6 flamers suck to engage, but the Bullgryn finally nailed the suits to a wall.

That was the crazy part. I though it'd be facing a traditional stand still gunline. I was really surprised when his stuff jumped to within 9 inches of my line and wiped out almost a quarter of my list. Those 3d6 flamers are a problem that was only mitigated when the bulgryn charged in with their slabsheilds. ShadowSun ate a pair of hellhounds, but the genestealers soaked up a lot of firepower.

Unfortunately you may be waiting awhile for their WW3 stuff (Battlegroup NORTHAG). I believe the next release is another full hardback in North Africa covering the later desert war with the entry of the US.

Though Cold War BG should be slotted to come after that.

Game of invincible dreadknight. 2 turns of firing by almost all cadian army(and short of manticore all big guns I had) against that thing and best I got was to 1 wound(and that was early first turn so it ate almost 2 turns full shooting without taking 1 wound...). Executioner cannon and plasma cannon went toward grey knight HQ that had been wounded 3 times by flamers but failed to do nothing either. Turn 3 with most of my big guns still firing I didn't do anything. Sigh.

It went so ridiculous I even tried out of desperation to charge the damn knight with my warlord naked company commander But 3" charge roll put end to that plan.

Funny introgame with my 2000+ points Death Guard against my long-time opponent's Guard and the new guy's Mechanicus. Three objectives in the midfield (those red boxes), each worth 1 VP at the end of each round or 3 if stolen from the enemy that turn. While flaming debris rained from the skies. Oh the shame, my Contemptor is still unpainted...

Lesson of the match, damn it's hard to get Guardsmen to listen and just die on the objective in the ruins when they have 2+ saves (+2 from digging in with Cities of Death and their bloody Strategem for extra +1 cover). It's time to start building those 20 man Plaguemarine squads for 120 grenades

After 2 weeks of trying to build a post-CA 2k AM list with my limited range of models, managed to scrape together something using Marines for infantry and AM tanks in a spearhead. Faced Chaos renegades/marines.

Another game in which I lost mainly in deployment. My opponent did a refused flank and managed to get cultists engaging everything in melee. I wiped out 35 cultists in my first turn, but enough survived to engage my hellhounds, tanks and artillery. I killed a helldrake but the other ate my artillery and a company master.

My Intercessors did well with their stalker rifles. Might have to bargin for bits so I can convert the quick build guys to stalker pattern. Stygies Vanquisher worked out great. even if he got mobbed early on.

My Orks in their first actual outing since 2009 when I started them..

1,500 points v Dark Cheesey Angel Ceesy Cheese

My deployment



Not an overly optimised list but except three infantry models every work I have painted

Calm before the firestorm


Lost about a third of the army before they even moved, most of the rest the second turn.

Killed a few bikes and a character on a bike, plus a couple of marines, got utterly cheesed

fun though


Surely there should be some sort of karma penalty for the warlord in my enemies army being easy to spot as the only actually painted model...

Tonite's 2k friendly training mission
My Salamanders vs Crimson Fists (led by vote4pedro)

Interesting deployment open war deck scenario.

Hammer/anvil
Twist was measured reserves

both of us really liked this scenario, lots of action and with the segmented deployment was an interesting change up.

A victory for the Salamanders but interesting as Pedro and a Primaris Lt weathered the assault of a Redemptor and "killed" him.

Had first dogfight and it was fun talonVtalon combat where I almost single turned a stormtalon.

Sons of Horus with titan support against Blood angels with knights and pair of vendettas to help out. Objectives were center bridge for both, bunker in SoH deployment zone for blood angels, tower in BA deployment zone for SoH, destruction of titan for BA and survival of titan for SoH.

Titan shooting was rather deadly despite first turn targetting plasma against knight/rhino group and 2nd turn plasma scatters being less than helpful. However stream of missiles from one knight, melta shots from second knight, lascannons and autocannons(good for clearing void shields) from predator and hail of lascannons from vendettas were binging away titan. Terrain plus unit crowdness kept titan pretty much locked in place(we need to figure out terrain so that it doesn't prevent moving as much or dictate it can actually stay in river or get non-river sections) so eventually knight gallant was in it's face. I tried to shoot it(including 2 shots from plasma of titan) but it was still on one hull point and titan on 2. I was "oh gak" but then remembered hammer of wrath. S10 auto hit on I10? Oh yeah! If that fails I'm screwed(1 WS2 attack vs 2 STR weapons at WS4...) but if I dn't charge I'm screwed anyway. Charge, took out, explosion caused d3 hull points so still good chance to die but luckily 1. Phew.

Elsewhere assault marines after getting pummeled by titans bolter and having traffic issues due to river finally got charge against 20(minus few casualties) tacticals with chaplain and apo. 10 or so blood angels were left. Took 3 combat phase but eventually only 3 sons of horus emerged unscathed. Ironically partially helped by blood angel praetor instant killing chaplain that had cataphractii terminator armour so suddenly Sons of Horus could sweep and lucked out on test...

Land raider with terminators fell into traffic issue plus dreadnoughts assault cannon rending 2 HP and then got charge so went down. Terminators eventually stomped dreadnought though took ages as neither side hit. Tactical squad that had charged got beaten the crap out of by lighting claws though took 2 terminators with them. So eventually 2 terminators were facing remnants of 2 tac squads(maybe 7 guys in total) and jetbikes(2 heavy bolters and heavy weapon volkite) and fell to shooting.

SoH veteran squad basically drove around flanks until predator immobilized rhino and then disembarked and went to tower. On final turn predator and 2 vendettas(that went to hover mode) tried to take them out but sergeant survived and passed LD. With bridge on hands of tacticals and titan dead this was 2-1 win for Sons of Horus.

30k zone mortalis for the first time. First time against mechanium so whole pile of "they do WHAT"

Jump packing power fist dudes were major pain but last tactical got away in kp which was good. My dread held them nicely after killing 3 in charge but last 2 plus 2 bigger guys came for rematch. Somehow 6 s10 hitting on 3+ and instakilling them got just one. Elsewhere terminators slaughtered chaff but nasty elite beast gave worry but 4++ saved day. Lost due to first blood when my overall useless librarian charged lone fast attak rotor cannon flamer guy and got shot to death. Could have just retreated toward 10 tacticals rushing to help...

Game ended on turn 5 needing 3+ to continue. If continue almost quaranteed draw minimum, win if 2 s10 smash attacks don't kill contempator(3 hs left) before getting killed in return(4 s10 attacks hitting on 3+ is handy)

Game in a local tournament of 12 people I believe? Second round of the tournament after a lost against Alpha Legion (Not anything cheesy, he ran 2 squads of 20 chaos marines, a land raider, a Chaos Drake, etc...). My Dark Angels vs Tau (Broadsides, pathfinders, stealth suits, etc...). A loss, 7-14, basically because nearly all my antitank was plasma and try to destroy a Ghostkeel suit with -2 to hit with plasma
Very fun game, it was anyone game to the end.

Had a nice three games with a quickly built list in a 1.5k tournament:



A fun game with the winner of best painted. I did a pretty good job of taking on his mawlocs, but the sheer amount of threat vectors left my forces overwhelmed with a crumbling flank.



A Dark Eldar player tat started by dropping the most points-intensive model in the tournament - a 400pt Tantula. Unfortunately for him, My plasma inceptors took it off the board before it could even activate. He managed to eek out a victory using the superior mobility of his forces. Primaris Chaplin was a champ, facing the DE incubui and Succubi head on.



For some reason this is the only pic that actually got saved to my phone,despite me taking several. Dual Helldrakes and a demon prince. I was able to obliterate one helldrake and almost finish off the other, but the demon prince managed to wreck my center.

Ig vs black templar. Was turkey shoot but victory going to holder of objective that he started with gave him running chance. As it is if i hadn't rolled 3 and 4 to extend to max length he would have won. As it was i won. Scenario rule of acid rain(-1 to hit in shooting, advance and charge that comes ang goes) kept 2 turns of shooting to minimal especially as cadians had to move to chase object holding characters surrounded by primaris guys who were there just a bullet screens.

My Chaos Soup vs. my friend's Death Guard:

I ended up losing this game due partly to a couple of huge play mistakes on my part, and because we ran out of time while I was down on kill points (if we had finished the whole game I probably would have pulled it out). Still, it was good to try out my competitive list and work some of the bugs out of the system.

Played a game yesterday with my wife. 1000 points of Orcs vs Adepta Sororitas. Deployment zone was 24" on the narrow table edges, Eternal War mission "No Mercy", and boy was that ever true. The middle of the table was a shooting gallery.

Highlights:
She won 9-6.
First Blood wasn't until Turn 3, and Orcs got it.
A 10 sister Retributer squad with 4x heavy bolters and 6x bolters getting the Act of Faith that lets them shoot an additional time at the beginning of each turn and has a cannoness that lets them reroll 1s... fething hell.
2 units of 1x Warcoptas infiltrating from the rear was an excellent diversion. Kopta Rokkits are no joke, either!


Yes, I know half of my orcs aren't painted. They will have to wait until after my HH army and Chaos army are done. Maybe.

Her Sisters are coming along nicely. The one unpainted, unfinished tank in the first picture is an immolator.

Pic of game we are playing right now(stopped for lunch break). Start of turn 2. Baneblade is counting as glaive as we wanted to try out just how nasty it is since it's supposedly so awesome. I might have overloaded on anti-tank stuff despite deliberately not taking pair of knights to march behind(while knights would take d3+1 haywire hits 4++ and 3++ protects and guys behind would be safe). I started game so here on turn 2 with Horus & Justacaerin dropping around and having 10 lascannons and 2 vindicator laser destroyer it went poof. For added misery to Imperium it then promptly scattered right top of custodians taking 2 out, damaging land raider heavily(so it was easily taken out) and so far Imperiums have failed 2 critical charges at 4" and 5". So it looks like Horus is having easy victory. He's also fighting custodian tribute on fairly even basis. 4++ rerollable is nasty but degrading stats means even with fist tribune is now wounding only on 4+ and striking last. If Horus hadn't taken couple wounds from hail of plasma it would be walk in the park. Now one bad round could get him killed.

Also imperial player went on wrong side with his assault squad I think. One on one vs my tac squad I think he's in trouble. I'm fearless due to chaplain and well...I have chaplain and apotechary. War of attrition was on my side especially as I was able to shoot couple guys off. Assault marines are good enough especially with 4 power weapons(2 swords and 2 axes) wounding on 3+'s and 2+'s but 4+ to hit hurts and as said attrition was on my side. Other side had tactical squad without additional CCW or character. That would have been much better.

edit: Well the custodian trooper with power fist type of weapon actually killed the chaplain breaking the deadlock so with the last jump pack marine actually killed off last of sons of horus tacticals in sweep. If that 5" charge hadn't failed things might be different. As it is with 10 lascannons nearby I don't think those have much chance...At least no danger of tacticals reaching enemy deployment zone which is the objective.

edit2: Well Sons of Horus took 6-2 victory. Justicaerin(2vp), bikes and Horus into enemy deployment zone, slay the warlord and attrition. Blood angels only got support squad into deployment zone(2 pts). MVP's were Horus(largely ability to deep strike but of course killing tribune was also big), lascannon squad(8 hull points off glaive, squad of 3 custodians, one terminator, finished off last member of another custodian squad and last assault marine) and jetbike squad with plasma cannons. Handy especially on the crowded table. Nowhere was safe from them.

But it was closer than it might look. As said serious bad luck with Imperium. Had the lone custodian with power fist made charge(5") he could have killed off chaplain which would have altered that area vastly. Then when said lone guy made charge against heavy weapon squad he got hit by 2 lascannon(on 6's), wounded both times and failed both 5++ rerollable. Had he made it and say win combat(not that unreasonable. He has 2 attacks, 3 on charge, hits on 3+, kills on 2+, is hit back on 5+, wounded 5+ and has 2+ save) imperium would have got him and assault squad would have survived so 4 vp's from there so draw. And btw he doesn't even need to KILL enemy. Just needs to stay alive(oh and 2 wounds on him) as we were on deployment zone and nothing could have got there in time.

30k sons of horus vs wolves. Had infiltrating 10 lascannons and seized so hoped i could at least immobilize one spartan. Nope and grey hunters came and for loss of 2 killed 20 tacticals with apotecharioe and my warlord. I fury of legioned and sent 5 terminators. 16 claw attacks, 3 hits, 1 dead. Lascannons failed also stopping land raider with termies that ate librarian squad. At the end herald and last tac squad charged remaing grey hunters and got slaughtered.

I had 2 jetbikes, immobilised sicarian and fleeing lascannon left. He had remnants of one grey hunters, another full squad inside spartan and terminators left.

Too bad he didn't have assault squad with him so we went for 2.5k lists. My 3k list would have had much better chances i think.

It's a pretty solid, straightforward system, despite its age. An award-winner back in the day. Plus the rules are available as free open-source PDFs now, with the blessing of the author.

You can find them at http://www.d6holocron.com/downloads/wegminiatures.html if interested.

Literally the final shot of my last game. Ambush scenerio, I needed to get 1/3 of my army off the table edge to win. This is the top of the 7th round. I’ve already got one squad off, and two more are ready to run when I go (at the bottom of the round) The rest of his army is out of position, having butchered my other forces. All he has left is a 4xLC pred down to it’s last wound. My primaris LT. has a couple of wounds left on him, but isn’t dead yet.

The dice gods smile on the pred, and even though he needs 5s to hit, he lands 3/4 of them. Wounds and armor save follow, and the lieutenant falls. My other unit (Sgt. Chronos in a vindi) rolls off the table edge. I’ve saved 330 points out of a 998 point list. Just shy of victory.

Playing this right now. Bazillin blood angels vs smaller sons of horus group but reinforcements coming.

Ba had first turn moving from table edge. Lucky break when snap firing lascannon squad blew sicaran in cover. Now about to be ba assault phase with termies about to charge against squad with ws3 due to hallucination

edit: Blood angels won. Tacticals and praetor cleared their objective easily from terminators. Assault marines cleared the main objective fairly well though I had reinforcements coming but issues began when there was contemptator coming their way. I was by now out of ranged AT and damn hallusination spell sniped melta bomb wielding sergeant from tac squad rushing in(19 S3 hits...Ouch! That hallusination is good tactical sergeant killer since it's 1 S3 hit per other model in squad and those are 20 strong blops!)) so I was basically without ANYTHING that could hurt that dreadnought. I got charge with justicaerin but only one chainfist left that could hurt and alas charge range was low enough that combined with narrow area only it got into b2b contact and thus was splatted out first.

So this was 4 VP's for BA. I had 2 VP's on building I still had and likely would control as my tacticals unleashed fury of legion and with whopping 50 bolter shots killed last 8 tacticals from that hallucination libarian(that had on one turn first hallucinated into my tactical squad resulting in dead apotechary and then psychic scream which killed 6 tacticals. Ouch. Took quite a dent). BA still had 10 support marines with volkite chargers and that librarian but vs squad of 13 tacticals, my warlord beatstick praetor and another squad of 2 tacticals he's hard pressed to survive there in last turn or clear enough to have more models there.Especially as I was in cover so would be striking first if he charges. Particularly handy with the warlord...

I wrote Zone Mortalis for 8th. Play testing commenced through the weekend. More effective flamers and grenades abound, brutal morale penalties, smoke, dark halls and what not. I dig it.

My Death Guard took part in fierce naval fire fight with my pal's Ironically 80's Space Knights, 1000 points per side. Objective: strike in fast and deep, take out their engines and let them die to our big guns. This of course meant that the whole battlefield shook from time to time, metal fell from the ceiling, dust blocked visibility and all that jazz. I started the game by blowing up one of the three targets, rolled forward with my terminators and crushed his first overeager crusader squad between them and the Contemptor. As they clashed with his Ironclad in the middle, my right wing got crushed by his company veterans but bought enough time for one melta squad to come crashing through the locked doors and blast the second engine. His chaplain and champions hacked my auxiliaries apart and eventually avenged Helbrecht, who had been beheaded by my lord midfield, but it was still not enough and in the end his ship had suffered too much for this to count as a victory, even if the boarding party had been slain to the last. VP's went 4-3, slight win for Death Guard.



Had another match too with the same forces, sides reversed. This time there were 5 objectives, there were booby traps all around, Space Knights came creeping in from the air vents, the ship's superstructure ripped apart sending half of the forces left to their deaths, my Lord slew Helbrecht again while simultaneously and ALONE wrestling with a crusader squad, an apothecary, a chaplain and a company ancient. Oh and he casually slew an Emperor's champion too while at it, before finally succumbing after like four turns of bloody melee. VP's 5-4 here for the Space Knights, again very close with the attacking side wiped out in their plunge. In the end of the 7th turn nothing remained on the field except my Contemptor

Got a game of AvP in last night custom mission, aliens vs predators. Aliens needed 5 frags and to escape, predators needed to rig the ship to blow and escape. Was good fun but needs some tweaks, the alien player deployed a royal guard and warriors in the predators objective room so predators had little chance of completing their objective.

60 power level orks, this is the first time I'd played any of these models in 8th, Zhardsnark was just a standard Warboss on a bike for this game. Great fun.

My wife and I decided to add some spice to our Gates of Antares games and squeeze in games of Silent Death. That way, there's a space battle, then the winner gets a bonus to the next ground battle etc.
We've only just discovered Silent Death, even if it is out of print - although you can still get the pdf books and the minis are still made.

We tried our first game without the nice custom mousepad hex space mat that's due from Deep Cut, so instead played our first short game as Algoryn vs Ghar on the rather lame Starfinder Flip-mat. Those creases are so annoying and the hexes aren't quite as large as we'd like, but a fun game was had.

Silent Death:


Love the game, and kinda wished I hadn't spent quite so much on X-Wing or Attack wing, as this is so much better.

I finally won a game!



My Tyranids went full bore against Death Watch. My opponent ended up owning the right flank, only to have the objective (comet) landing on the left where all my infantry and support was. By running everything that could over there and sacrificing the rest, I was able to win by scenario.

I've decided to take a week's rest while I assemble/primer/paint models. This was the final game for the escalation league I've been playing in and I had a lot of fun. I wasn't able to get all the painting I wanted to, but I'm still happy with the experience.

Tried Heralds of Ruin today, more tomorrow. Took a bit of gentlemanly discussion to find out where the fun balance was (my Death Guard shall not consist solely of deepstriking terminators, your Imperial Guard shall not spam all the plasma in the galaxy etc.) but after a few test matches it was really fun.

Here we have a fierce battle raging over an abandoned hospital site and in the end, after the rattle of bolt and lasfire has died down, bloodied soldiers emerge from the stormed buildings and the lament of those broken fills the air, the XIV legion stands strong and defiant.

More Heralds of Ruin. Had a good evening kicking IG arse with a third fellow butting in with his dastardly Rogue Traders. Firstly the Traders smacked some IG heinies too, while drunkenly trying to get a map to their actual goal and then proceeded to raid the Death Guard laboratories in search of a Doomsday Device. And raid they truly did, for while about 80% of their team was utterly murdered by the Astartes, their swaggering leader made a leap of faith from the highest ledge on the battlefield, slid safely across to the next roof, ordered his voidmaster to grab the thing and the bastards flew to safety while hanging one-handedly from a drone

Afterwards we had to go clear some minor monster problems, perhaps having something to do with the lost device...

Orks vs dark angels. Due to deployment zones, me seizing and orks simply having tons of models(and I happened to have 2x10 boyz I had planned to mob up but decided instead to use as rear area chaff instead) dark angels had REAL hard time deep striking. Only due to chronical time issue forcing me to skip stuff like measurements gave him 6 terminator sized hole on my backfield to even allow putting them anywhere but his own deployment zone corners...My dakka jet basically invalidated most of his deployment zone! And even lone tank busta nob visible on top left screwed up his deep strike possibilities. Buggy was also used just to block bottom left corner effectively.

Alas due to time issues(2h is really short time to play slowest gw game in decades with orks) we only got my 3rd round(me starting) before time up. Would have been question of can those terminators take and hold objective vs ghazz, 2 boyz squad etc with no help coming(either dead or mired in orks way too far to help anymore)

Another Arena Rex game...


5 v. 5 matchup...
Cohort A: Urbicus, Hermes, Acerbus, Micon

Cohort B: Lupa, Gaius Pallidus, Leo, Atrox, Noxius

Leo had an amazing Reaction: Counter Attack move early in the game that scored him NINE successes and doomed Hermes to a much earlier defeat than I had counted on. Thank goodness Urbicus hung in there and kept Leo occupied for the remainder of the match.

MVP goes to Acerbus, the rhino - he trashed Atrox, took out Leo's last few health, and pounded Noxius into the dirt all on his own. He made up for my other gladiators being less than stellar... I already mentioned Hermes getting punked by Leo, but Micon also was totally ineffective on the other side.

Really loving this game the more I play. Sounds like it's going pretty strong at the moment as well.

Our first proper game of AoS at the Shed.

The field. Game was 'Battle for the Pass', with 4 objectives (The Big Tree, Skullvane Manse, Town square, Woodcutter's Cottage).



My Wars of the Roses guys pressed into service as Freeguild with a REALLY quick (4 hours) sculpt of a saddle on a Reaper Bones Griffon to mount a general on.



More Wars of the Roses minis as Freeguild. Archers occupying the Market Hall (but not for long).



Blightkings assault the market hall and throw in a massive 45 hit round... archers didn't last long.



Some Knights arrive to ruin the Plaguebearers day...



General on Griffon messes up the Blightkings shortly before a GUO arrives to lay the smackdown on him.

Totally feth'd up the deep strike and my charge, but still came through by sheer virtue of a 3+ armor save:

Space Marines had several units in reserve and tried to mouse trap the guard as they moved forward. Plan backfired and the Guard beat off all the reinforcements with massed fire and eventually controlled all the objectives.

Imperial Guard versus Legion of the Damned Knight and Space Marines with special victory conditions.




Objective was the Knight, which used it's speed to move away from any dangers. Since Space Marines and Legion of the Damned had the first turn they targeted all the Heavy Weapons Squads and wiped them all out.

Although regular infantry reduced the Knight to half wounds in two turns.

Orks versus Space Marines.









Start of the battle did not go so well for the Orks with the Battlewagon being destroyed first round. In fact the Marines proved to be very hard to kill and their only failing was not grabbing more objectives earlier on. However attrition slowly whittled the Orks down in the last two turns to snatch victory for the Marines.

I think there are a lot of Primaris lists using Imperial Fist doctrine. If you go Primaris,you go infantry heavy since you have really good heavy infantry options that replace vehicles and because what vehicle options you do have are terrible outside the bog-standard predator. Imperial fist's chapter tactic is great for auto-bolt(assault) weapons and for agressors. Hellblasters like it too, since it punishes the enemy for trying to stay in cover.

One of our regular members has always played Imperial Fist since he started repainting his Crimson Fist Marines many years ago. He is winning about half of his games with the infantry, a dreadnought and a Predator. Perhaps a little less than half, but no where near as many loses as the Orks have suffered.

Forgive the random eclectic nature of the scenery.

Been trying to get my dad to actually play every now and then, but he isn't a big fan of the more fantastical stuff, or the scale we tend to paint in. He's collected Britians and 1/32 scale toy soldiers since he was a little kid, so he's got quite the collection. So I tried to play to the strength of what he's already got.




My side of a hybrid Song of Drums & Shakos/ Song of Drums & Tomahawks. Maoris versus Von Tempsky and Rangers.

Didn't get a good shot of my dad's side. I believe the figures came from Irregular Miniatures.

Maoris were dug in their Pa pretty well, with the NZ forces having to advance through difficult terrain. My shooting was terrible as always, so my dad split his forces with the bulk trying to go around and surround my Pa.

Frustrated by the lack of ranged success, I sent some close combat- focused scouts through the forest, where one of the topless women proceeded to butcher her way through a unit of constabulary. Having taken out at least three members of the unit and the commanding officer, the constabulary's morale broke, sending the remainder of the unit scattering for safety. The topless woman was then promptly shot by one of the rangers as they made range.

Feeling the overwhelming presence of the foreigners closing in, I sent a few more skirmishers through the woods to try and reduce the Rangers' numbers, hurling spears and closing in on the unsuspecting Kiwis. The results left much to be desired.

Upon reaching the Pa, the Rangers began traversing the fortifications, where they were met swiftly in hand to hand combat, and fell just as swiftly. Things were going well until Von Tempsky arrived, whereupon he challenged the chieftain to a respectable duel.

I rolled a natural 1 to my dad's natural 6. Needless to say that was pretty much the end of my Pa at that point.

Apparntly everyoe in the East Bay had their own tournement going on on Saturday. I attended a 1k tournament in concord in which you and a teammate combined scores.

I failed to bring enough anti-armor and then dropped against three lists I couldn't even scratch. Lesson learned

No pic, but my first matchpu was against a dark agnels list with all the plasma. Found out I've been misreading WoTDA's CP cost wrong for months :p I lost over 2/3rds of my list on the approach and only managed to kill his screens.

My second match was against a Deathwatch army using the new codex. I quickly realized that without my Interceptors or Dark talons, I can't kill a Corvus Blackstar. At one point i was forced to charge a unit with double frag cannons in order to salvage some victory points, only to have all three units die to the 76 frag cannon rounds that were fired in overwatch.

On the plus side, I was able to mix it up in melee and tie up a lot of points with my grapnel wielding reivers :



My final matchup was against my own partner. He brought a levithan dreadnought that I could only wound on a roll of 6 (my own damn fault for the list build). I actualy ended up running my entire army around and away from the dreadnaught to kill the three assasians and managed to last until the bottom of turn 5 before being wiped out.



I'm licking my wounds and getting ready to face my oponents again today, but this time with my anti-armor along.

Edit: The game with the Maoris sounds like it was Ganeesha Games Song of Drums and Shakoe/Tomahawks. Not a fan of those rules myself, but they would be great for beginners. Love the idea of playing to what you had.....

I got another game of Men of Bronze using paper stand-up templates. Nothing like paper templates ot represent those men of bronze! This time, we played the Battle fo Ephesus which was one of the opening battles of the Ionian Revolt. We went back a bit in time since I didn;t have enough Persian Cavalry when we got started.

Yeah, we were playing Ganesha's rules.

Song of Drums & Tomahawks for the most part. We used Drums & Shakos volley fire rules to both speed things up and to keep it semi- historically accurate.

Orks vs ig. For a change brought mechanized army and ran against pask, russ and shadowsword. Got recon scenario which further screwed me as he is only hurt by counting as moved, my units are slowed down and chinork was forced to deep strike on my zone ensuring i got to shoft turn 3. Had it come turn 2 it would have been business as usual. Was reduced to kmk's and grots having killed just hellhound and odd infantry.

The one time i don't bring infantry swarm opponent is skewed toward at and then scenario was perfect for him...ugh

Game was as close to one sided as I have played in 8th edition. Tau used their Stealth Suits to lay a beacon close to the head of the Ork advance and dropped two units of Crisis Suits with 3 flamers each to whip out entire units. Orks never really recovered from the loss of so many models.

Space Marines versus Eldar.




Space Marine player set up his army on a broad front to try and control as many objectives as possible while the Eldar concentrated on their right flank.

While the Marine did control more objectives for a turn or two the Eldar crushed the Marines left flank and rolled up the centre capturing the objectives and destroying most of the Imperial force.

There were a few epic defensive actions on the Marine's side, with single models stalling the Eldar sweep.

This was a "Multiplayer Battle: Carnage" with four players. On my right flank were 20 Death Company that charged me almost immediately. After wiping out 20 of my infantry my Tank Commander in a Punisher mulched them. On my left flank was a demon prince and four dreadnoughts (all forgeworld, I cannot recall the names) who charged head first into the Tau in the opposite corner. Early game I moved one of my APCs and its load of troops to the middle, securing points. Ultimately I won the match, both by points and the fact that the Death Company and Tau were wiped from the board, and my Chaos opponent only had two heavily damaged Dreadnoughts to take on my APCs, Hellhound, Tank, and Bullgryns.



Overall it was a good match.

Brought out my chess clock in order to see just how big of an effect it would have on my game. Just to double down on my fumbling, it was also the first time I brought my list as a DeathWatch force instead of a Iron Hands/ Dark Agnels combined force.

I dropped against a list containing about 6 leman russ tanks, 3-4 squads of mixed elysian and vostroyan infantry, and 2-3 plasma command squads (elysian). In my Space Marine list it would have been my death.

Turns out 5 intercessor/5 hellblaster fortis squads backed by a 10 stalker pattern intercessor squads can really ruin a tank.

We both started with a lot in reserve. I had to run things much tighter since I didn't have Chapter Tactics boosting everything without auras.


There was three tanks there...


When the elysians dropped, I just had all the backfield shooters advance. Reviers ran back to keep them off my guys.


We ran 90 minutes per player and finished in turn 5 with 15/20 minutes left. I won via a single VP from first blood, having taken the right side of the board and prevented his securing the objectives on the left. I've decided to keep painting and use this list (slightly tweaked) for BAO. My opponent was a superior player and veteran, so I felt pretty good about pulling a victory out.

Happened to draw a DeathWatch vs DeathWatch match that I thought would be a good way to test out my new bolt rifles. I dropped all but of my two fortis kill teams against my opponents three razorbacks (with oldmarine vets) and 3 hellblaster teams in DS.



It was a massacre. His multiple frag cannons wiped out my intercessors, followed up with melee weapons against my characters and the three hellblaster squads nuked my hellblaster and stalker squads off the table. By the time my second turn started I had killed a razorback and 2 models but I only had 3 models left alive. I didn't even bother dropping my fortis squads but had to surrender right there.

Definitely have to figure out a defense for that list.
