I couldn’t come up with a great title for this post since it’s a conglomeration of things; a status update of sorts.
I’ve been showing the progress on my Chaos Lord with his Steed of Slaanesh but I have done some other work also. Nothing amazing but I did put together five Bloodletters. I still have to do some gap filling on them though.
A 40K Game
Wednesday night I managed my first 40K game in a month. Life has interfered with my routine weekly gaming so it was nice to get out and play with my toys again. The game itself was very one-sided though. Let me show you why.
Thankfully my opponent is a cool guy and it’s the only reason I played against that and why I’m not going to piss and moan about the game. The results are as you would expect, I got destroyed. I gave it my best shot though. I had deep struck in two units of Obliterators and the Raptors behind a Knight and lit him up. It took all three units but the Knight went down (shot below). However, that was my only good round of shooting and it was downhill from there.
Chaos Space Marines
A bit of a mind dump here. Lately I’ve been playing my Chaos Space Marines instead of my Khorne Daemonkin. As much as I’ve praised KDK, I missed having that diversity of the normal CSM codex. I still think Khorne Daemonkin is a great codex and a ton of fun. However, with my need to buy kits to put together a reasonable list, and the fact that a Daemon assault based list has many issues in today’s 40K meta, I’m taking a break from it. As much as I enjoy Khorne, there’s so many great units in the CSM codex that I keep finding myself missing. Mixing and matching Chaos Gods is one of the things I really love about CSM.
There are rumors floating that we’ll see a Chaos codex next month and I’m anxious. Chaos Space Marines were the first 6th edition codex and has suffered for years now with its mediocrity. I love Chaos and I don’t think the codex is terrible but it needs some love. I’m not one to wish list and buy into rumors so I just hope for something on par with everything else in 7th. The last two Chaos codices have been on the bland side and there’s so much potential there.
Lots going on for me and I haven’t been able to focus on any one thing lately. With infrequent gaming it has affected my hobby motivation. A lot of my hobby drive is based on lists I create and things I want to try. No games means no lists to to build and paint for. Hopefully my gaming routine returns to normal and in turn my hobby work.
