40K skirmish game: Preliminary thoughts

With the rumours not so long ago about a 40k skirmish game based on the inquisition a friend of mine got very excited, and honestly, I did a little. I have played several games workshop skirmish games and they are always fun, so another one that actually got support was an exciting prospect... until it turns out that it’s not going to happen. So with that disappointment, I and a friend have been thinking about how to create a 40k skirmish game, but this one based around small skirmishes with one or two squads per side engaging in a fire fight.

By A sent ones Request...

The light isn't great right now but this is the first time i have had a request for more pictures of my hawks so here they are. I have taken a fair few pictures but these are the best 3, i hope it shows what ever you are after.

Swooping hawks Finished

Just a little post today, and its showing off my newly painted swooping hawks. Before the tournament i started painting them so they weren't all purple but i never got round to finishing them, until now. So here they are.

Post-Tournament thoughts

The tournament ended about 3 weeks ago now and I have only just got around to getting back into 40k. I don't know if I just overloaded myself on the game in such a short amount of time that I momentarily had to stop, or if I just generally need a break. Either way I have had one, and now I think it’s time to look over how I did and see what I can get from it.

Tournament game 3: Eldar vs Daemons/chaos 1850 'death from the sky'

The third and final game of my tournament, so far I am 1 win and 1 loss so I need this game to be good one. I am drawn up against a chaos daemons army with chaos space marine allies, I can only describe it as a flying circus, and I have never played against such a list before so it was definitely an interesting experience. The mission was 6 objectives and I was rather worried.

Tournament players

I know I have only been to two 40k tournaments but something that irritated me while I was at my 1850 one was the attitude of one of the players, which quite frankly baffled me. Every one that I talked to and two of the players I faced where great guys, friendly, took their punches, were graceful in victory and knew their rules. Yet the last guy that I faced was the opposite.

1850 Tournament: Game 2 Eldar vs Chaos Space marines/Necrons 'Purple Rain'

Game 2 and i'm up against Chaos Space marines with Necron allies. A lot of flyers, it has to be said he brought a lot of flyers. I have only ever played against Necrons once before and it didn’t go well, so I was rather nervous about this game. Oh and a lot of purple models were on the table this game.
