Battlegroup is so good. I almost started a WW2 project but decided to wait for the Cold War version.

Unfortunately you may be waiting awhile for their WW3 stuff (Battlegroup NORTHAG). I believe the next release is another full hardback in North Africa covering the later desert war with the entry of the US.

Though Cold War BG should be slotted to come after that.

Yeah, I'm in no rush. If I decide to dedicate myself to something like that it'll give me time to start assembling anyway. Do you play anything else locally in Charleston?

had a quick brawl over turkey between the Griffins of Akkylanie and the Scorpions of Dirz. Tarkhus led some praetorians against Claudia and some creatures out of Shamir. The Griffins would eventually come out on top.

Game of invincible dreadknight. 2 turns of firing by almost all cadian army(and short of manticore all big guns I had) against that thing and best I got was to 1 wound(and that was early first turn so it ate almost 2 turns full shooting without taking 1 wound...). Executioner cannon and plasma cannon went toward grey knight HQ that had been wounded 3 times by flamers but failed to do nothing either. Turn 3 with most of my big guns still firing I didn't do anything. Sigh.

It went so ridiculous I even tried out of desperation to charge the damn knight with my warlord naked company commander But 3" charge roll put end to that plan.

Funny introgame with my 2000+ points Death Guard against my long-time opponent's Guard and the new guy's Mechanicus. Three objectives in the midfield (those red boxes), each worth 1 VP at the end of each round or 3 if stolen from the enemy that turn. While flaming debris rained from the skies. Oh the shame, my Contemptor is still unpainted...

Lesson of the match, damn it's hard to get Guardsmen to listen and just die on the objective in the ruins when they have 2+ saves (+2 from digging in with Cities of Death and their bloody Strategem for extra +1 cover). It's time to start building those 20 man Plaguemarine squads for 120 grenades

After 2 weeks of trying to build a post-CA 2k AM list with my limited range of models, managed to scrape together something using Marines for infantry and AM tanks in a spearhead. Faced Chaos renegades/marines.

Another game in which I lost mainly in deployment. My opponent did a refused flank and managed to get cultists engaging everything in melee. I wiped out 35 cultists in my first turn, but enough survived to engage my hellhounds, tanks and artillery. I killed a helldrake but the other ate my artillery and a company master.

My Intercessors did well with their stalker rifles. Might have to bargin for bits so I can convert the quick build guys to stalker pattern. Stygies Vanquisher worked out great. even if he got mobbed early on.

As I slip though the widening maw in my new form, you will catch only a glimpse of my radiance before you are incinerated. Then, as tears of bubbling pitch stream down my face, my dark work will begin. I will open one of my six mouth, and I will sing the song that ends the earth.

Got a couple of games of DCU in today, this is from the second (a 4 way battle). Turns out flying Superman up to 3 other Kryptonians isn't a good idea... Wonder Woman and Flash died shortly after, both to Deathstroke (over 2 turns though) but GL and Batman endured a bit of a pounding

My Orks in their first actual outing since 2009 when I started them..

1,500 points v Dark Cheesey Angel Ceesy Cheese

My deployment



Not an overly optimised list but except three infantry models every work I have painted

Calm before the firestorm


Lost about a third of the army before they even moved, most of the rest the second turn.

Killed a few bikes and a character on a bike, plus a couple of marines, got utterly cheesed

fun though


Surely there should be some sort of karma penalty for the warlord in my enemies army being easy to spot as the only actually painted model...

Tonite's 2k friendly training mission
My Salamanders vs Crimson Fists (led by vote4pedro)

Interesting deployment open war deck scenario.

Hammer/anvil
Twist was measured reserves

both of us really liked this scenario, lots of action and with the segmented deployment was an interesting change up.

A victory for the Salamanders but interesting as Pedro and a Primaris Lt weathered the assault of a Redemptor and "killed" him.

Had first dogfight and it was fun talonVtalon combat where I almost single turned a stormtalon.

Sons of Horus with titan support against Blood angels with knights and pair of vendettas to help out. Objectives were center bridge for both, bunker in SoH deployment zone for blood angels, tower in BA deployment zone for SoH, destruction of titan for BA and survival of titan for SoH.

Titan shooting was rather deadly despite first turn targetting plasma against knight/rhino group and 2nd turn plasma scatters being less than helpful. However stream of missiles from one knight, melta shots from second knight, lascannons and autocannons(good for clearing void shields) from predator and hail of lascannons from vendettas were binging away titan. Terrain plus unit crowdness kept titan pretty much locked in place(we need to figure out terrain so that it doesn't prevent moving as much or dictate it can actually stay in river or get non-river sections) so eventually knight gallant was in it's face. I tried to shoot it(including 2 shots from plasma of titan) but it was still on one hull point and titan on 2. I was "oh gak" but then remembered hammer of wrath. S10 auto hit on I10? Oh yeah! If that fails I'm screwed(1 WS2 attack vs 2 STR weapons at WS4...) but if I dn't charge I'm screwed anyway. Charge, took out, explosion caused d3 hull points so still good chance to die but luckily 1. Phew.

Elsewhere assault marines after getting pummeled by titans bolter and having traffic issues due to river finally got charge against 20(minus few casualties) tacticals with chaplain and apo. 10 or so blood angels were left. Took 3 combat phase but eventually only 3 sons of horus emerged unscathed. Ironically partially helped by blood angel praetor instant killing chaplain that had cataphractii terminator armour so suddenly Sons of Horus could sweep and lucked out on test...

Land raider with terminators fell into traffic issue plus dreadnoughts assault cannon rending 2 HP and then got charge so went down. Terminators eventually stomped dreadnought though took ages as neither side hit. Tactical squad that had charged got beaten the crap out of by lighting claws though took 2 terminators with them. So eventually 2 terminators were facing remnants of 2 tac squads(maybe 7 guys in total) and jetbikes(2 heavy bolters and heavy weapon volkite) and fell to shooting.

SoH veteran squad basically drove around flanks until predator immobilized rhino and then disembarked and went to tower. On final turn predator and 2 vendettas(that went to hover mode) tried to take them out but sergeant survived and passed LD. With bridge on hands of tacticals and titan dead this was 2-1 win for Sons of Horus.

West Michigan, deep in Whitebread, USA

I'm bummed I forgot to take pics of last weekend! I finally got to play my first minis game in over a year, an Orcs vs. Stormcast battle using Age of Fantasy Skirmish by One Page Games, where I taught my father to play, now that I live next door to my parents and the kids were asleep. I'll have to remember next time, it's a great indie system where 4 Stormcast can take on 10-15 Orcs with the right tactics.
