Last week I didn’t get up a Road to Glory report but it was a thorough spanking and wasn’t a ton to go over. I was tabled by turn five by a great Tyranid player. That made this Wednesday night the final game and the way the campaign works it was the game that decided it all. Despite being thrashed consistently every week, the Imperium could still win the campaign.
Imperial records contain very little about the Black Wolf Space Marines. What is known is that they were once a Great Company of the Space Wolves. The Black Wolf Lord, whose name is not indicated in the archives, was rewarded for heroic service in battle with command over Herjolfsnes. A recently rediscovered planet on the southern fringe of Space Wolf territory, scans of Herjolfsnes indicated a population of nomadic tribes and rich mineral resources. The entire company set off on a crusade to claim this jewel for the Space Wolves. Early transmissions from Herjolfsnes indicated that successful contact had been made with the natives and that construction of a planetary defense base had begun. Several months after the landing all transmissions fell silent. In time, scouting ships were sent to investigate but no sign could be found of Herjolfsnes or the Black Wolves. Although it is possible that the Sagas of the Space Wolves contain more information about the Black Wolves and their fate Imperial inquisitions into the matter have met with nothing more than veiled references to the Black Stone.
Took the GK to a 2,000 point tournament at my FLGS. With one window AC unit cooling twenty 40K players and a handful of Magic players flipping cards at the front. It was bath water warm at best. Now I would like to take a moment to just go over some basic hygiene. Take a shower in the morning. Second passing gas in a room is rude, passing gas in a 90 degree room is disgusting. It lingers and it’s not funny. Enough said.
Thought for sure I’d get a bigger response but what can you do? Since the votes haven’t changed in a few weeks it’s time to shut this one down. Here’s the results regarding the 6th edition rumors for 40K:
This month was a 2K tournament at my FLGS and we were trying something new. We’ve been using a scoring system with massacre, major, minor and draw and opted to try a multiple objective format with primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary. It’s a system I’ve seen used at a lot of other places and one some of us tried at an out of town tournament we attended and liked. The idea is to allow someone to always have the ability to score something and to allow for players with a bad game, as in they didn’t score a massacre, to still be able to stay in contention. I rewrote three of my mission to use the format and we ran with those.
In my last post I included pictures of the pilot for my counts-as-Bjorn dreadnought, Raemos Sun-fist. This model is based on an AOBR dread but I wanted something more distinctive for something that represents a Bjorn equivalent so I decided to replace the front of the model with the gunner cockpit from an Eldar Falcon and make the pilot visible. This is the result so far:
I’ve been pouring over the Space Wolves codex, sifting through my collection, and hunting around the web for tips and deals in the effort to build a list that will be effective and doesn’t cost me a lot more money. After a little play-testing (and even some modelling!) I’ve settled on a starting list at 2000 points:
Kamui put up an article in his summer challenge series about the progress so far with his Marines by the name of Reavers, a DIY Space Wolf chapter. They’re looking good so far but he has a ways to go.
Last month I put up an article about an incredible find. As the result of that find I’m now well on my way with a new Chaos Marines army. I have a reasonable core for the army and it’s time to start considering purchases.
Continuing into week #3 for the campaign at the LGS I was paired off against a Chaos Marine player. The game was seize ground with pitched battle deployment and a few catches. First, terrain features were nominated as objectives. Second, as the defender (the Imperial side having lost last week), I had to deploy my entire army first and then the attacker got to decide if he wanted first or second turn.
