Things have been busy lately on all fronts so I figured I’d just dump some random stuff up here as an update.
This event is on May 23rd, weeks away, and I still have a lot of work left to do. I’ve finished one of the three missions, the second is partially done and the third just an idea. I’ve received lists for the event and have been reviewing those the past few days. I’m also still working on the trophies for the winners and that’s eating up a ton of time.
As you can see, the paint is very wet. I took yellow, orange and blood red and just washed them all together into the paint soup you see. I forgot to take a shot of it dried.
I’m working on the plaque these will go on, of which I have eight, and I also still have to paint five more of those parts that go on it. So much left to do.
Saturday was supposed to be a 40K tournament at my FLGS. I headed there and only six of us showed so we decided to just play casually instead of paying an entrance fee for six of us. It was a nice change of pace. We threw some dice, drove to get lunch and came back to throw some more dice. Only thing that would have made the day better would have been beer while gaming.
My first game I played against the new Eldar. Thankfully the Eldar list wasn’t all cheesed out with all the stuff the internet is raging about. I of course had my Khorne Daemonkin and was curious how it would fare against what I would consider a hard counter to Khorne. The answer in this game was surprisingly well. I had a solid early lead, at one point being up 8-2. At the bottom of turn #4 he started to turn things around and when the game ended he had me by a few points. Both our armies were brutalized with a few models each remaining. It was a great game and nice to see that an assault army can hold their own in the face of Eldar guns.
My second game was against Orks in a pure bloodbath. Long story short, he had a big blob of Orks that made up most of his army. He had Big Meks in there, a Warboss, Weirdboyz and a ton of Boyz. I spent the first two turns positioning myself to slam into it on turn #3 and that’s exactly what I did. Flesh Hounds with Chaos Lord, Berzerkers with Herald of Khorne and Bloodletters all dove in and mauled the Orks. Unfortunately I had to run before the game could reach its natural conclusion and we ended on the bottom of turn #4. At that point I was up something like 6-2.
It was a fun day with two great games.
I probably won’t have many updates while I continue to whittle away at the Fratris Salutem but soon, I hope, things will get back to normal.
