Apocalypse! Pics and views Imperium Vs Chaos

I participated in my first game of apocalypse the other week with the new rules and I have to say I was rather impressed by the changes. It was a very fun day but it did take a long time, what you would expect from apocalypse. Now this isn’t a battle report, more of a collection of pictures from the game.

Blogs to watch

As i'm currently on Holiday there are no real posts for this week, just two quick ones i have done in advance which quite honestly aren't that great (still come back on friday though). So to make up for this, i would like to direct you all to my favorite blogs that i follow. They post often and have some great stuff to share, so while im away, give them a look in.

Race against time: Failed

Well i failed to finish off my Lynx, but for the sake of it i though i would show you all the level that i got up to. I stuck on the pulsar so i could use t in game but the engines are still not finished, the pilot is missing and the whole underneath is just primed and not painted. And the many many gems are still black. But here it is anyway for you.

Smoke and Oil... Eldar vs Orks 1500

The first test for my new evolving list is an ork list that is being tweaked for competitive play. I’m rather concerned about how I will do in this game, as the orks will be on me very quickly and get me in combat, somewhere I don’t want to be. The game is Emperors will with dawn of war deployment, 1500 point game.

Starting the Evolution again: Eldar 1500 list

 I am restarting my evolving list series of posts for Eldar as it gives me a little something extra to strive for. All of my previous games with eldar have had totally different lists so this has given me a glimpse at what the new roles of each unit is. Granted I haven’t tried all of the units yet but I think I’m happy for now, in future I probably will still test out new units, so the list won’t get stagnant. Anyway onto the list...

Race Against Time: Painting an Eldar Lynx part 2

This is the progress that i have made so far on my Lynx, and i have to say its not great. Getting the bleached bone to the level it is at now has taken longer than on my other models, and its still not right so it will take another layer or two to finish. Time is very quickly running out and i can't spend all of tonight on it as i had planned. So its not looking like it will be finished. However i will cheat and get as much painted on top as i can. Hopefully it will look ok and i will be able to finish it off in the future. 

Also reading over the apocalypse rule book i am really liking the new changes to formations, choirs and commands. One thing does bother me though and that's the changes to super heavy vehicles, mainly that they can no longer jink, and that they ignore everything on the damage chart. I though driver damage and weapon shaken made sense, but they have gotten rid of it all. I guess it makes my Lynx a lot better now though.

Anyway back to painting!

The Emperors Anvil... Eldar vs Imperial gaurd 1500

Again I take my Eldar out for a game and this time they face the anvil of the imperium, the Imperial Guard. I will be testing out another few units to see how they act working together in this 1500 point game of Big guns never tire, with dawn of war deployment.

Race against Time: Painting an Eldar Lynx

I am joining in an apocalypse game on sunday and i want to sue my eldar lynx but it was far, far from painted. I don't expect to get it fully done but i want it up to a reasonable gaming standard. This is my progress so far, and hopefully i will have more updates before the big day on sunday. Wish me luck.

Lynx in early stages
I hope that the new apocalypse rules make this little beastie just a good as it used to be (at least how good i think it is from its rules) and maybe a little boost. who knows.

Eldar Vs Flyers: Options Available

The skies darken with monsters on leathery wings, hunting anything it can get its claws on. Missiles and bullets scream from hi-tech flying machines cutting swathes of men down where ever they pass. What tools can the Eldar bring to the fore in order to combat such threats with their new codex? Not that much is all I can say, but let’s have a little look shall we?

The monstrous devourer... Eldar vs Tyranids 2000

This game came about when a friend of mine purchased a lot of tyranid monsters on ebay for a very VERY small price. So he challenged me to a game of 2k points so he can test out his bugs, and I took the opportunity to test out a few more units in the Eldar codex which I haven’t played with yet. The game was Emperors will, with hammer and anvil deployment.

Warmachine game 3: Menoth vs Khador 15 points

This weeks game of warmachine is a 15 point game vs khador. I was rather worried about this game as it had a lot of models on the table. While I don’t know what it really is I have heared bad things about the khador ‘winter guard deathstar’ which I will be facing.

White Dwarf July 2013 - Review

Apocalypse, this month is all about the re-release of the 40K expansion Apocalypse. While this doesn’t exite me anywhere near as much as the release of codex Eldar last month, it’s still giving me a little tingle. Are you into large battles with towering warmachines that dwarf even a mighty monolith? Then apocalypse could be the game for you. Anyway what’s in this month’s mag?

Feora, protector of the flame. Finished.

Today i finally got around to finishing off epic Feora for my Menoth force. I wanted to get her done now so at least a single model is painted for my next game of warmachine. I am not 100% sure about her cape, i was going to do it a lighter blue for i'm not sure. I can always go back to finish her off if i need to in the future.
