Time for the weekly game matrix update.

I didn't get to play as many games myself this weekend, as i was facilitating setting up tables for others, but that was fine because i enjoy a good looking table.


First off, the battletech games-










A very small learning game of warmachine-the match made in heaven or hell depending on your perspecitve-

Protectorate of Menoth VS Infernals



Some 40K...i do not know if they ever got around to playing or they were jut doing a beauty shot-



Specter operations



Star Wars legion




And finally, the game i was playing a smallish 30K game of world eaters VS salamanders.

Obviously, we were somewhere in the warp considering the presence of a TAU world in 30K.

5th God of Chaos (O'rly?)





First 40k crusade. Blood drinkers vs word bearers. Win.

Then ptg, skaven vs seraphon. Win. Furnace and rat ogors did some work. Was one 2+ rerollable away from escaping casualty rolls.

Mucha dice rolling later casualty pile kept piling...

Skaven vs ko game had to be aborted mid-t2. First time facing ko! But opponent had very good reason so no can do.

I made an extension to my table to get it up to 8 feet in length. Because shooting a tank cannon 72 inches is glorious.

Did a tank battle. Two custom ork battle wagons and 3 mek guns vs. 1 Leman Russ, 1 Chimera, and 2 Scratch Tanks. (The Non GW tank models. They counted as PL 8, Lemon Russ with battle cannon only, and do not benefit from Grinding Advance Rule.

Mission was Stand Off from Open War. Imperium had range and fire superiority but orks were more aggressive at rushing the center objective. Imperials pulled off a last minute win though with a lucky advance roll to take the center objective last turn.

Imperial Kills: Two Battle wagons and 1 unit ork boyz.

Ork Kills: One Chimera.

Ironjaws vs cos. T1 went as well as i could hope and got double so if i would have chance this was it.

7" charge with goregruntas failed forcing to choose deal with shooters with general or let them shoot at me. Killed them, lost mawkrusha. Also tied his griffon with goregruntas but lost them of course.

By now i had just not enough tools. Even if i kill 1 unit of demigrypgs other unit and griffon will kill me. He got double though so 3 heroes left vs 9 demigryphs, pair of griffons and couple wizards.

2000pts 9th ed 40k vs a friend at the local FLGS. Didn't really want to play some 9th, but I've not played a game of anything in a long while... We agreed beforehand to use some daft lists full of chaff units as this was the wargaming equivalent of a kickabout for us. So it was Death Guard (using Terminus Est list) vs. Orks. The bulk of both lists was Poxwalkers and Grots respectively.





I had 80 Poxwalkers. Think he had 80 Grots as well. They just ran towards one another and started slapping.

Through the valley of death!

Had a nice four player bash of Titanicus for demonstration purposes. In the dead of night, amidst a fierce battle between Iron Warriors and Death Guard legions, the titans strode to duke it out properly. After the firestorms, mushroom clouds and orbital death-beams abated, the minty fresh God-Breakers were but a smouldering memory under the victorious tread of the Ashen Gods.

The most unlucky fellows on the field had to be the crew of the lone Stormhammer: imagine driving your slow juggernaut of a tank days on end to have a titan smash through the highway ramp right in front of your nose, have your treads fuse together with the asphalt as the Warlord next to you goes nuclear and end up buried under like three different titan-corpses

The other day my Grots accepted the challenge of trying to bring down a Baneblade (+ an accompanying Guard patrol). 55pl per player.

I had a solid plan for accomplishing the BB takedown.
Alas, it turned out that the dice gods were not in agreement & the takedown units died in vain.

Even so I still damned near won on VP. Had the game ended on turn 4....
Unfortunately the last of my forces were cut down leaving leaving the Guard to score vp unopposed in the last turn. I lost by 5 pts.

Playing some Under the Martian Yoke. This is a solo/co-op/versus survival horror game set after the Orson Welles Martian invasion in 1938.

Here a survivor has to fend off some feral dogs in the Martian wasteland of the East Coast of the US.

2 games of crusade. First up against orks. Slaughtered them to the ork losing just one unit. However the orks cunningly stopped me doing actions which gave them just enough lead winning 100-90.

Then up against death korps with 2 tanks in 25pl. Ugh. Assasinate so keep librarian dread alive.

T2 got into melee. Realized might been better to wait for assault doctrine...got russ with demolisher cannon dead. Punisher shot guys from melee shooting plasma cannons to dread. Still alive.

Got brainfarth and charged everything to the tank. Sang guard tore it up predictably(hitting on 2's rr1 assault doctrine on) giving him chance to blow up last wound and then 20 punisher shot. 2 wounds, 3+ with 1 reroll. Survived and won the game.

2 games of path to glory. First weird custom scenario where objective comes round 3. He had half units hidden in terrain and half in reserve. Rounds 1-2 i move in empty board ready to go where objective comes.

I had wandered next to haunted forest so 16 ghost appeared 3" away from me wiping monks but furnace and warpfire thrower nuked them and furnace took out rest of army.

Then second game vs lizards in thondia open vault scenario. Wild gnashing jaws in center. That proved good for me eating 5 temple guards in 2 turns and slann on 3rd. Monks ate 5 cavalry, furnace bastiladon and saurus general, warpfire thrower most of saurus and at lizard turn 3 he retreated. Couldn't open vault on 2 4+ roll so just minor win.

For the BTech game your seeing a very poor picture of an awesome looking 6x4 vinyl map the shop owner had printed..
He found some btech site with custom maps & had a few printed up.
This one is a desert area. On the one side is a housing allotment complete with roads, trees, houses, swimming pools!, a factory/mall, etc.
The middle section is a huge swathe of bare desert cut by a road & a central bit of rough terrain (I think that rough bits in the pics).
Then the other 1/2 is deserty hills & ravines.

Next time at the shop I'll try & remember to take a picture of the whole thing. And find out what site it came from.

The FoW game fought amongst 40k terrain?
Well, the shop where this battle occurred has a severe lack of 15mm terrain.....
We're fixing that.

65-57 win by blood drinkers vs death guard. First non-crusade game since new ca.


Tried new strategy called "wait and suffer shooting". Worked surprisingly well. T3 finally launched assault. Sang priest sacrificed himself eating terminators attacks. My own terminators hit 6/21 attacks killing 1 but lib dread barely killed blade of sanguinus target winning game in the end.

Apart from lib dread heroes were infiltrators stopping deep strikes a lot and redemptor dreadnought that ate shooting silly amount. On my t4 it was STILL alive.

I have an insane amount of terrain i have to transport for all the various games i/we play i regularly bring 8 tote boxes of just terrain. many are in bubble wrap or original boxes with packing. however when it comes to the 6mm terrain i have no way to transport it in a manner it would not become scratched up. so painting it would be a waste of time.

Speaking of games-

There were a bunch of DnD games running including a 6 hour slog that tied up most of the miniature gamers for the night.

So the only other game i was not in was this 9th ed 40K game




I played 2 demo games of DUST 1947, the first was small and fast so no pictures. the guy i was teaching liked the game so much we went again at a higher points level and a different army (he played allies in game 1) this time it was an objective mission with the falshirmjager facing off against the SSU steel guards.




The last game of the night was a 50 point game of khador VS skorne, we were both trying out some new stuff so it was pretty interesting.

Skaven vs skaven in ptg using the skaven special ptg scenario(which gw clearly didn't plan for skaven vs skaven. Skaven goes first...okay which skaven?).

First turn slaughter was terrible with hordes of rats dying(even from my side). Things looked bleak for them but 4 ratling guns were safe. He also played safe and didn't overcharge leaving less damage this turn but killing huge swathes of rats without losing ratling guns. Double here could be crippling as my rats would struggle vs 16d6+12 shots next turn.

No double so i drove harder in though pulled back from his screaming bell. He was "hurt me!" And i was "like hell i do". Giving him free vermin lord didn't appeal.

Got his stuff mostly wiped by end of his turn. Still double might give him some chance but still me.

I charged all to bell. Furnace whiffed. Corruptor whiffed. Rat ogors got 4 wounds but 3+ saved. Thing survived with 4 wounds.

Then he hit bell, got another wound so on 2+ he gets verminlord, on 1 dies.

He rolled 1...

Well, it was an oddly sparse night for weekend gaming. lots of real life stuff kept some of our regulars away.

There was a game of X-wing being played on one of the back tables but i forgot to get a picture of it because i was playing my own star wars game-

First off, some classic battletech on hex map-



That game and the one i played on the swamp table were both republic of the sphere era so we could break out some rarely used mechs-



The star wars game i was playing was using the B5 wars conversion rules for a small demo game-because of the scale i was using home 1 as a rebel assault frigate so it would be roughly the right size for the small frigates and patrol cruisers defending the XQL platform.



Then a buddy of mine wanted to try out a new fleet list for BFG, he had to use a borrowed chaos battleship to be a second emperor because we didn't have enough ships.
