|There was a wide spectrum of players; very much so; some didn't even need the rulebooks|
So that was that! (the end of the day, not the post) I arrived at 11:00 and got three games in before 6:00 a loss, a draw and a win. Purge the Xenos seems quite a good scenario to begin with; simple obliteration-- I know, not quite that simple.
I think there were three games going at any one time; unfortunately I didn't really see what was going on elsewhere, I was a little tied up...
|Thunderwolves are terrifying.|
|He dropt right into my face; a tactic I actually took and used in my third game|
|His assassin couldn't walk and work at the same time-- hitting nothing he shot at|
|After destroying the rhino APC the devastators were left to spit in the grey hunters' eyes until they next moved|
|A little too late|
|The centurions got him down to 1 hull point before he stomped them down|
|His wolf lord cost him 300-something pts-- he devoured my squad like it was nothing. I killed the fenrisian wolf, though|
|This was scary|
|The only things I seemed to be able to kill was the wolves...|
Come turn 3 I decided to call it; points were 10-1 in his favour and there was no way I could overcome that. But it was terrible fun! He didn't actually realise it was my first game, and he apologised, but there was no need to, really.
Second game was 750 pts against one of my best friend's Tau. Unfortunately there was too much terrain for the size of the table and we didn't have the time to finish it and were tied 2-2. But Throne, Lord Kleitos certainly showed his worth, even if he was too far away for close combat! He hit everything he shot at and survived a 33-shot salvo of pulse rifles with a wound remaining!
|This was fun|
|His "venonat" destroyed a rhino and half a tactical squad, thankfully no more|
|After obliterating the guardsmen, the tactical squad were taken down by whatever guns THOSE things had.|
|WHY did I have to entrench my devastators!?|
At the end there was prizes given out! I came third and won a terminator librarian kit. If I had gone up against Nathaniel's eldar it would have been a different story... Apparently his wraithknight blew his nose and an IK exploded...
I also had a lot of interest in what I had for sale, my metal hive tyrant and kitbashed commisar in particular. Nothing was bought but only because people didn't have the money on them at the time. I got some numbers for possible commissions in the future, so that's exciting too.
So yeah, wow, what a day! I wish I could go every Saturday, but packing my guys up every time is such a pain... I need to buy a carry-case. A big one.
And that's that. My first three games which were amazing.
