Have fun, HBMC - looking forwards to some shots of the tables in use.

Took these just before we got started, with the whole table set up.









Two games were played:

Chaos vs Sisters of Battle
The Chaos player deployed really bad vs a big Rhino Rush sisters army. Except they weren't Rhinos. They were Repressors. Repressors are frickin' mean.

Chaos got picked apart, setting up 3 unsupported Havoc units nowhere near the Noctilith Crown, walking Forgefiends onto the table where Repressors immediately locked them in combat. The incoming Chaos HTH forces eventually did quite a bit of work, but it wasn't enough

Tau/Tyranids vs White Scarps/Deathwatch Knight Soup
Over from the word go. The Castellan removed 2 units a turn, and my allied Stormsurge faced several 6 damage Krak Missile hits before it even got to our first turn. It never got to do anything. My Toxicrene died before it could move. My Maleceptor moved once before it died. One of my Tyrannofexes got one shooting phase. We didn't bother with turn 3 as we had thrown everything we had at the Castellan and it hadn't taken a single wound. Complete waste of time that game.

Fairly old program called Microsoft Excel.

I do the list in Battlescribe and then I transcribe everything to Excel. This includes any stratagem I don't have a physical card for. I do a similar thing with my home made 40k RPG sheets; the idea is to have a sheet that allows you to avoid looking through several different rulebooks. If everything is on the sheet, then you wouldn't need to rush for the Codex, or a PA supplement, or whatever. Takes a while, but it's worth it.

Table looks great, looks like it would be a blast to play on. You should be proud of all your hard work!

I'm sorry game 2 was a waste of time. :(

Really nice looking table... I know one game let you down, but are there any good action shots? Regardless, really nice painting on that terrain, and on the mega-project too! It all seems a bit bold in terms of color, but I know what a forest of girders and gantries it will be up against... I bet it will all blend just fine.

Everyone said that the craters looked fantastic, so at least that went well.

Thanks to that random reddit post I saw explaining red ochre/yellow ochre/Reikland Fleshshade as the way to do that. I added a black base spray and a Mounfang brown drybrush into the mix as the first two steps, but otherwise it works well. The yellow ochre matches with the red, but the Reikland wash really gets rid of the high-yellow peaks and blends everything back together.

My friend said he was going to retire the Castellan from regular play. There are some things that just aren't fund to play against. That was one of them. One of these days I'm going to get to play my Tyranids in a game where we're playing long edges and not short.

The Mechanicus-style gantry looks really good on those diagonal walls!

Hopefully they release some diagonal Mechanicus wall segments to complete the existing range.

Now it just becomes a question of how many to get: 2 or 4?

Hopefully bits sites start getting them soon. It'll save me from having to have 4 statues.

8, obviously.

Could do a street section with statues down either side...

Are those battlefield in a box plateaus/mesas stock out of the box or did you retouch them with some paint? Mine look darker and redder than yours do.

Straight out of the box.

My experience with battlefield in a box is that their stuff is very good quailty, but also very expensive. Also, I've been told by someone that lives in southern Spain that during the summer their buildings can lose consistency or even melt a bit.

I've got heaps of their stuff. Never had a problem with it, other than the stuff that arrived damaged.

Southern Spain or Australia... I'm honestly not sure which would be rougher on them.

So... today we got the news that GW is raising their prices.

More specifically, they appear to be raising the prices on virtually every single terrain kit they make.

This... does not sit well with me. I may be doing a "last blast" order prior to the June hike to get some of the things I've been holding off on.

How very frustrating...

2 or 4? What kind of auestion is that? Clearly the answer is 4. I'm happy this mixing of two sets works so well, as now that I know this, I will definitely use it.
