Fast swap -- take out 12 gaunts (make it two squads, one w 14 the other w 15) and add wings to the tyrant. still comes out at 2500.

Also, I think Nids will win. Just a guess, though.

I also think the nids will win, You will need a strong sence of target priority when fighting that nid list, the onlything I can really see in your favor is the preds with their Dakka, the landraider with the templates to clear some space, and the fact that your death company + Assault termies should eat whatever unit you assault with them.

@WarEagle - Target priority will be king there is alot of things that need to be killed immediately and not too much Firepower to do it with. If I do not take too many casualties from the doom I think I can pull off a win. We shall see. Either way it will be a good time.

@Tetrisphreak - I hope your guess is wrong I will add to the bet some type of BA bits vs some Nid bits so the winner may add them as trophies to a model or two. I am thinking BA body would look good on your Harpy bases or maybe a Nid body impaled on a dozer blade or something.

The Tyrant and Harpys should be your easyer shooting kills, and probialy the more important since they have a good movement range, as for the rest of the MC I guess I would take them one at a time as they come if at all posible.

I love this. I will be there all day friday, so if either want a game before or after let me know.
Tetris, I can bring my Flip too if you want to make sure you have enough space, or you want to film it from different angles. Also I will have my laptop with me if you guys want it uploaded right away. The Flip is the greatest invention eveaaaa...

Regardless I cant wait to watch you guys go at it.

@mike - I am hoping the WHFB 8th edition black box will be there so I can get a peak in the afternoon if not and if I can get there early enough we can throw down.

Well, its tough to predict. Its really gonna come down to how tight of a game tetrisphreak plays.

If you mismanage Mephiston for just one turn, he will single handedly table you. You MUST keep one and a half eyes on him at all times, and there needs to be a line of gants between him and your MCs at all times.

If you are using INAT tyrant guard rules, then its probably safe to charge an unwounded Meph with your tyrant. Otherwise, even that charge could have you eating instant death.

Lists are closely matched... the best general will win. No pressure guys

Please check out my current project blog

Feel free to PM me to talk about your list ideas....

So now that the missions are out which one do we play? 1 or 2 is my vote that third one is pretty much straight annihilation.

I am with you on that one -- mission 3 is straightforward but looks like It will make it difficult to get a massacre without tabling the opponent.

I say we roll-off for which mission to play when we get the table set up, 1-3= mission 1 and 4-6=mission 2, then if we have time we can do a grudge match and play the other one. First battle stands for dinner and trophies, second would be just to waste time and get familiar with some of the little issues in the written mission.

Sound good?

Excellent highlighting/shading/basing on that guy. He definitely looks like he's out for blood . Too bad it'll be his OWN blood that gets spilled. haha! I love it!

Now, if i could only find my blue half of my green stuff, I MIGHT be able to get my harpy basecoated by friday. don't know if it'll happen or not.

Anytime. I hear bugs find marines very juicy, just have to get thorough all the bolter rounds and armour to get to the gibblets

Video BattleReport to Follow, 'Ard Boyz today so no time to do it now.

Nids won a minor victory 1 to 0, very good game all around. We played the mission 'Git da Shineys' from 'ard boyz, and all four objective markers scattered to within a few inches of each other. Good times, and a tough match for sure.

Lemartes has a Jumppack and that means no Rhino or Redeemer...


Had a great game against Tetrisphreak last night. He schooled me on Tyranids and my experience showed flaws in my list which I corrected for Ard Boyz today where I placed 4th.
