Recently played a game of British Grenadier, refighting the Battle of Monmouth.

Will Washington be able to save his Continentals from Lee's blunder? Or will Clinton capitalize on the Americans' mistake? Read the AAR on my blog to find out.

Got my ass kicked by tson. I went first, after my 2nd turn it was easy concede.

Shooting mostly bounced off, repentia sucked(note to self. Need to charge 3 units and accept one will die doing nothing), my dice rolling didn't help and my 2 anti-psychic 18" auras never got to work. And tson shooting vaporized me.

Super packed weekend last game session

Got in 4 games myself in addition to what everybody else was up to.
Did 2 DUST 1947 games to break in my fresh painted fallshirmjaeger infantry.

the first battle was against the dreaded soviet super heavy infantry steel guards



The second game was a friendly fire battle against the heavy panzer grenadiers



The 3rd game was of course some classic kill teams, a great way to get a bunch of people playing 40K and not taking forever to get through a turn.



Last one for me was a classic battletech direct conversion game using my mobile suit gundam toys.



Some of the other games being played-

Huge star wars legion battle CIS VS empire



Another game of kill teams, this one indoors with some proxies(cause nobody has that many ogryns)




Last up our oldhammer game 3.5 iron warriors VS 3rd edition chapter approved armored company-

One of the guys has some from another company that are space ship interior decks, look for that coming in the future.


They don't need imperial tech in DUST they have scifi VK alien tech to use.

Ptg continued. 1600 vs orruks breakthrough. Easy win with 4 models dead ln breakthrough. Didn't take double on round 3 as felt better off giving him priority.

Then watchtower vs slaanesh 2k. Like 3rd or 4th watchtower during ptg this campaign...

Slaanesh alpha horrendous but struck hard and after double he had like 4 models left...but one was the big 400pts fat guy on throne i couldn't deal and other was mirror hero that slipped into position to summon keeper that was crucial in this scenario destroying watchtower i could hold well.

Ironically only reason this guy had keeper was i just today sold my slaanesh models to him

I'm amazed at how much you get to play. And how often.

Only things I'd say would be:

1. Those 40k games don't have nearly enough terrain.
2. As much as a pain as it is to do - and I do it for every pic in my terrain blog - it might be better to shrink the pics down to 40%-45% of their original size both to save on the file size and load times.

There is another option?



I get one day a week for gaming and i make the most of it.


1. Those 40k games don't have nearly enough terrain.


Not to bad actually considering it is 5th ed all that area terrain and the scatter terrain provides cover, we just didn't use much in the way of LOS blocking to stay with the setting of the table. As well as the first game the IG player used fortifications from the stronghold assault book to add to the terrain.

Are you looking at 9e or 5e standards? 5e required lot less than 9e as GW has upped lethality to ridiculous level since 5e

1.5k sisters vs dark eldar. We wrapped it after my 5th as he had no way to score enough to catch up.

Miracle dices and blessed bolts gave me the win. (well technically could still roll but 2 5+ rolls and 11 on 2d6 aren't easy to roll)

Couple ptg games vs lizardmen. First the trap that was easy win with just 3 models lost. Then ritual which i won again. Me keeping priority round 2 was big both games.

Skinks charging into vindictors ended up...not so pretty.

I played a return match against my eldest using the Godzilla vs Kong rules I had worked up, him playing Kong this time. He beat me to a pulp; I think the problem was I kept trying to whack him with my tail when I should have been getting some distance to use my nuclear breath in relative safety. I have figured out how to implement Kong's axe though. Next game...

Played a game of Grimdark Future: Firefight last night.

We played a Patreon Exclusive mission where you split your force up into waves and they would enter the board throughout the course of the game. Unfortunately for the mission balance, you had to roll the dice to see if your new units made it onto the board. 4 rounds in and my entire force was the board and my opponent had just managed to get his second wave to enter. Meaning I had handidly dispatched his initial wave, and was just sitting on objectives and scoring for literally 2 rounds unopposed.

We think that if we had just increased our point totals so that each wave was larger we could have fixed the problem. We for sure want to play again, and still really enjoy the system. It's just a shame our first game in quite some time ended up being a feels-bad game.

Finally got a chance to play the new Kill Team for the first time. I played Tactical Marines vs Death Guard (3 Plague Marines + 8 poxwalkers), and got my behind handed to me, losing 3-7.

We played the "Master the Terminals" mission with two changes, so Open Play. First change was to use a board size twice the standard size (44" x 30"), and another was to play the game for 5 turning points instead of 4.

I made too many positioning mistakes and by the third turning point, I already knew I'd end up losing. First, my ML operative chose a wrong vantage point to camp in and ended up dying prematurely. Later in the game, I underestimated the Plagie Marine leader's charging reach and lost my plasma gunner to his powerfist.

The MVP of the game was definitely the Plaguemarine leader. He ended up killing two of my marines and wounding another two, and survived against all odds from insane amounts of damage, succeding in "distgustingly resilient" test for like 22 wounds worth of damage! I finally got him with a bolter overwatch round, but by then he had already won the battle for Nurgle.

Plasma, especially overcharged variety, is super effective in the new KT. AP2 aint no joke! Makes a Krak Missile look weak with its AP1 in comparison.. Think I'll swap out the ML for a HB and give the sgt a powerfist/powerweapon and a plasmapistol next time instead of a combiplasma.

All in all I enjoyed the new edition and am already looking forward to the next game! KT21 is refreshingly different from regular 40K, bolters are actually a big deal in this game. Also, the way the game plays feels very fluffy somehow, many things familiar from the lore make more sense than in regular 40K.

We started out the night with some DUST 1947, got a new player hooked on the game and gifted him some of my spare army bits and he also used a few units from my allied army to make up his 150 point list. for those who complain about lack of scenarios or objectives. the DUST website has 40+ free downloadable missions in the case we opted for "secret weapon"

starting turn 3 the required defending unit with the engineer skill tries to fire the secret weapon on a successful dice roll. the attacker can only win if they destroy that unit before the weapon can fire-there is no turn limit. attackers deployment is L shaped in the opposite corner from the defenders box deployment. fallshirmjager won the roll for sides and went attacker



A hard fought and close game against the attacking fallshirmjagers


Game 2 for me was breaking out some classics- most of these models are from my first army of 40k from 20 years ago.

Dark angels VS crimson fists. 2k points. we rolled up random table quarters deployment and kill points.

Both of us were having some really bad rolls, but in the end the fists pulled off a win with a 7/5 victory spread.





Other games happening at the store-

Some AOS




Some specter ops



And some star wars legion (1 vs 2 team game)

First outing with stormcast. After round 4 prio roll(i maintained) we called it as 27-9 win was all but quaranteed.

Was able to play tactically sound game resisting rushing everything to melee in middle and instead focused on flanks piece by piece.

Hey it is the weekend again! you know what that means




Tonight by request of one of our new players large scale (1/32) WWII thanks to the forces of valor toy line and their free simple skirmish battle system "battle tactics"

Game 1 was bridge assault mission with the soviets attacking german defenders on our saving private ryan table..saved me a lot of time for terrain setup.

The soviet side was running horde tactics with 4 T-34/85 (the scale was just a bit off because i found these cheap 1/35 scale toys) and 5 squads of infantry.


Spoiler:


The defenders position.



Game 2 was a huge game of nearly my entire german force minus the plane VS the american players full force-late war desert battle.





The other tables were enjoying some more star wars legion-



And some specter ops including a tank-






More pics of the WWII game can be found over in the historical wargaming section of the forums.
