Woo, dinosaurs! I think I played a similar game about hunting mammoths (and dinosaurs) a couple of years ago with Playmobile.

Necrons vs Imperial Knights (round 3)
The last of three Knights finished off the C'tan in the bottom of round #3 but was down to single digit wounds remaining itself.
(Top of round #4 the monolith obliterated the Knight in the shooting phase & the game ended in a Necron victory as the Knights never scored an objective))

Ogors vs skyre/pestilens alliance. Slaughter in battle for pass. Alas got greedy turn 1, failed all charges, didn't get double turn and couple somewhat inaccurate positionings costing me iron guts plus charge from mournfang squad.

Su style though did overall work. Just need to finetune implementation.

Skaven having got to objectives first, me strugling to get past and zero double turns he got big enough lead i could not catch up after his turn 4.

Well it's 1-3 per week generally. Tuesday 40k game night(though so far just once this year, wednesday aos, thursday lotr(been low this year. Not big group so somebody gets busy affects games a lot).

Edit: well soon there's break coming up. Gov ordered tightening up between 8.3-28.3 and following that flgs closes gaming area. Still might slip in some games at home

Well it is one of the best games for 40K that GW has ever made, even Andy Chambers still rates it as one of the best games he ever created.

I actually prefer 2K points but this is what the necron player had available. I have been getting more new players into the game so expect to see more battles in the future.

Last game of aos at flgs this month due to gaming area closing next week due to tightening restrictions. 1k stormcast vs new player(to gw games in general) with his nurgle. We dropped some rules like terrain effect rolled for pieces(instead all had deadly from realm) and no subfactions/artifacts/command traits.

After 4 rounds it was 15-16 in favour of stormcast and with just 2 justicators in melee left i couldn't deny any objectives nor claim. Had justicators had just 2 more models it would have been draw in primary though kills means minor win for him.

Did have shots but alas not to be.

AoS: My Sons of Behemet vs friends Luminith:
Hmm, pics are out of order....

First picture: The elf player forgot that mega-gargants can ignore terrain of 4" high or less. He chose not to destroy the objective he was holding, intending to get a greater VP bonus next turn.
OOPS.
He should've burned the objective & eeked out a close victory. He didn't, & it cost him the game when in my turn I stepped over the hill, charged & wiped the remaining elves.

2nd & 3ed pic: The round he should've burned the objective the elf player sent his cav into a surely doomed assault. I think the hope was that I somehow wouldn't kill them all.

4th picture: Elven spears take down a Frost Giant (regular Mancrusher - we've no qualms about using non-GW models).

Well with aos and it's pretty much infinite realm guess not totally impossible

One last game for flgs. Demo of lotr to new player. Was slaughter(lotr is more of skill so new player has hard time) but he got feel on rules and saw couple things to keep in mind. Managed to show him nasty trick with heroic combat to keep in mind to use yourself and to protect against. Was debating should i do it or play it kind but at least i learn better if i'm shown mistake in practice and this was something you really need to learn to defend against.

(his banner had 1 guy next to him to catch. However path to the non-banner warrior was open so warg chieftain with his 10" move charged warrior, heroic combat, killed and moved straight into banner. This led to death of banner and warg chieftain amidst which broke his lines). Heroic combats can cause important models be vulnerable in surprising spots.

In the end isildur also fell vs lowly orcs. Bit freaky dice roll ended his struggle sooner than expected

Same here though we got bit more generic ruins and some dedicated fantasy terrain recently. But for non aos fantasy like lotr it's still bad so have made some of my own for tournaments i run.

Ghouls ran into brickwall of fully buffed sequitors. 3+ reroll saves, reroll to wound & hit. 80 ghouls vs 10 sigmarine. Total slaughter despite half coming back from dead(okay 3 ballista firesupport also helped). Killed 2-3 sequitors over course of 3 rounds.

1100pts of Legion Of Nagash undead vs 1100 pts of Lumineth Elves.
Pretty much two of us were practicing with our undead stuff for a fast approaching Escalation league. We ran the undead as one army, split between two players. Partner used the GW zombies he's assembling & I put my undead 1/2lings on the table for the 1st time.
Mission was "Knife to the Heart".

We lost our characters (a pair of Necromancers) to elven no-LOS-needed archery on turn two.
Despite this it was a very close game with the Luminoth player only barely eeking out the major victory (hold both objectives) in the bottom of the 5th round.
MVP unit on the Legions side? A 20 strong unit of 1/2ling mummies (aka: zombies) who (with the help of some skeletons) killed a unit & a half of Dawnriders, refused to die until the 5th round, held or contested the objective, and forced the mighty Eltharion to waste ALOT of time helping the Dawnriders.

Pic one is mercenary 1/2ling ghouls vs archers.

Busy night tonight

started with a 25 point demo game of warmachine with my own army fighting itself.





The we tried a bigger game at 50 points after the other player borrowed a cygnar force.



Game 1 sorcha managed to put down Irusk hard, second game he got revenge......by running down a mob of trenchers and Sloan with the gun carriage.



Game 3 was a scenerio game-Babylon 5 wars rules-for star wars using armada ships including some 3d printed expanded universe stuff from shapeways that was never released in the armada line.but rules for it exist in B5 wars.

Played 3 games vs newish player. First 1k sons of behemath vs chaos. Lost horribly. Then 2 2k games. First with fec, then with chaos and he borrowed my ogres since brexit delayed his own ogres from arriving. First game mounted terrorgheist was on fire(10/14 6's with maw...) so won 26-18 or so. Next archaon list(without all the bells). Won but lot closer when 2 stinkikg gnoblars slid intto objective when i was scared to death of ironguts(and knew i wouldn't get double turn).

Him failing 2 times charge with rerolls hurt. Gluttons didn't get to do much before 1400 pts of chaos tag team them.

The Archon flicked the blood of the ork warboss from his blade, the beast finally dead at his feet. With their leader fallen, and his wyches sweeping across the field, surely victory was at hand. But it had been costly. Just ahead, barricaded by ruins and rubble, one of the greenskin artillery batteries still loosed blasts of crackling energy across the field. Too many of his skimmers had been wrecked by these seemingly primitive machines and their contemptible crew. Too many of his minions torn to shreds when their craft had suddenly buckled, slewed, and smashed into the ground. Revenge would be sweet.

There were no ork fighters left to defend this position. The Archon sprang effortlessly across broken stonework, coming upon the first of the ork guns, sparking and sizzling in its emplacement. He slashed deeply, sneering, and the thin metal of the gun shield parted like unarmored flesh. Then he heard the keening war-cries of its diminutive crew. These lesser greenskins, the gretchin, sprang from their positions behind the gun, hurling themselves at him with an almost admirable fury. But no matter! He was veteran of a thousand battlefields, slayer of champions, lord of--

Jagged daggers grated across his armor. Claws grasped at his face, teeth gnawed at his legs. A leather bag, filled with what must have been bits of metallic scrap, jangled as it slammed into his back. His force field flickered from a dozen small impacts. Then with a sickening, acrid snap of discharged energy, it failed. Knives hacked at his ankles. A metal pipe hit home upon his spine, causing a starburst of pain.

The last thing the drukhari archon saw, as the sky above went dark, was one of the grots shoving crude pliers into his mouth, grating against his teeth. What a stupid way to die...
