Second Game

Was even more a rout then last game. I won't go into it, but in the Liber Angelis that the Angels of Wrath keep from the days of the Nova Terra Interregnum, it is known as the Folly of Chaplain Xarivus.

I will do a rematch against andy on saturday to try another list design. I'm sort of half playing as I throw units on the table and just watch what happens. I think I am starting to get a feel for how I want to play my marines... but it's a slow go.

On the painting front, I need to get down on some more stuff, but I am still getting used to the move and settling in. I am going to try to get a dreadnought painted this week, and if I do, that's doing good I think considering my new schedule.

I'm actually considering not taking marines to the tournament on the 5th and instead taking tau. I think at the moment my Tau are more competitive. I'm just more used to playing them, the marines are giving me fits.

Back to the drawing board. I'll try and get a dreadnought painted and posted by next week.

First Game

Well... not my first game ever... but my first game back.

I took a mish/mash of marine stuff and threw it against Ryar's tooled up salamander list... it got stuck in like a spit ball down a volcano. I maned to almost have a tie... and didn't get tabled (by one immobilized, partially damaged predator and (2) scouts.

The scouts were more impressive then I thought.

The bikes were not. I was fairly impressed with combat tactics to be honest, but I think the problem with the use of the bikes wasn't them, but me. Sometimes when you use strange units and they don't work out, blame yourself. The scouts were actually pretty good that game, even though everyone told me what trash they were exactly because I knew how to use them. I am going to drop my terminator librarian and use a normal librarian I think. I also need to get to painting a few units, but I want to finish my dreadnougths and drop pod first.

Anyway, that's it. No new pictures, I'm to busy trying to get settled here.

I should play another game on wednesday, and some this weekend. I'm very very glad that I have a

Well finally landed in Jackson. Nothing new to post hobby wise, as my things are still in transit. they should get here this week and hopefully when I get some sanity I can work on my dreadnoughts and drop pods next week and *gasp* actually get a game in. If I get a game in, I may post it as a video blog of the battle to youtube if people are interested. Hmmm, that's not a bad idea.
