Warpstorm 2012

So it was Warpstorm 2012 this weekend in Oostende. For the people who don't where Oostende is, it's at the sea. A 40k Tournament with 1750pts limit and 3 battles to play.
I had 3 good matches and fun day. I learned also something this tournament, always! but always take a chainfist or something to kill a land raider in your terminator squad... That mistake really did cost me the match. Ooh well I shot his 2 stormravens out of the air. Overpower Quad Gun for the win! My zombies did a good job again versus terminators! Really I love my brainless dudes with 6+ armour save and 5+ feel no pain! I lost the battle but had a great time. 

Next battle was against Skyrar's Dark Wolves. Only thing that bothers me is that I was so full of it that he wouldn't deepstrike close to me. Bye bye land raider! Ooh and the epic battle between Typhus en Logan Grimnar. Logan lost his head and Typhus get a powerfist in his face. And in this battle my zombies didn't really hold their ground... Been killed by a group of puppies... Papa Nurgle isn't happy! Lost this one also. Sadly we didn't do another turn because of the time limit. I think it we did I got maybe 50% of drawing the primary.  AND I should have remembered that I had kill more of his units... I should have focused on the drop pods and not on the units with my predators. Stupid!!!  

Last view of the land raider before he was shot by multi melta!

Battle 3:
Space Wolves again! 4 rune priests, 30 grey hunters, 2 long fang squads, in a bastion, Venerable riflemen dread and a typhoon land speeder. I won this one thanks to rapid fire from my plague marines, a overwatch from the melta on his lonely Runepriest (killed his squad) and that his dreadnought couldn't assault me. Thanks to this big win I surpassed my previous opponents. Something I didn't suspect to happen!

Lets do the "It stay behind cover game"
I must I was lucky enough not to face 6 vendetta flyers, Necrons or any other though army. I really have to think of something to crush Necrons (Yes, I dislike them so much...) something to fight flyers, hordes army and vehicles. Pfew! That's' for another post!

Based in an alternate Earth, Malifaux uses gothic, steampunk, Victorian horror with a dose of the wild west to inject fun and depth into the magical lawlessness of a world rife with monsters, necropunks, man-machine hybrids, gunslingers, and power-hungry politicos. Actively using character-driven stories to define the world of Malifaux, seek your fortune in this fast-paced and brutal 32mm tabletop miniature skirmish game. Assemble your crew and stake your claim!

With the Group at our Local gamestore we are starting with Malifaux. We did a little “demo” last Tuesday. Which was kind of really bad. Lots of rules we did wrong and other stuff. But still the game is interesting and is going to be fun to play once we get the hang of it. 
I’m playing with Colette Du Bois. The Arcanist Showgirl master. Who looks as good as she is evil. If  you have seen cowboy films you can remember the saloon girls who dance in saloon:

Well imagine a whole malifaux crew looking like that! I did some rules wrong with my crew. Like every time you want to attack a showgirl you have to do a willpower test. Or they have Armor 3+ or corphette duet can’t be charged… Colette can be activated 2 times in a turn! Still lot to learn about Malifaux and my crew. Now some pictures from the crew. Painted by my good friend, The proffet. You can see his first post and his other work here.
So here is my Colette Du Bois crew. I magnetized the Coryphée Duet but he is going to do some retouch on them.

Insurrection 4

So long time again that I posted something. If been to a tournament. Placed 43th due to a mistake from the judges. I mailed them to fix the mistake. But still nothing has changed. So how did It went the tournament? Typhus is a beast when he gets into combat, Plague Zombies are awesome and evil to irritate people. For example the last battle they stood up for 5turns against spawns! Even killing one! Or hold a biker lord with his 10men squad for 4turns and killing 2! 

First battle: Space Wolves Horde. With 40 grey hunters, logan grimnar, 10 wolf guard terminators & 3 long fang squad. This should have been a win because you had to bring a relic in your zone. I was contesting 1, 1 was protected by my land raider. And another one was 1inch to short in my zone… Stupid Vanguard strike!! A losing draw for me. Since he got the secondary objective with first blood.

Second mission was a total failure: I came up against Imperial Guard with 3 vendetta’s and 2 manticore. An aegis defence line with quad gune. He got first turn and shoot my Land Raider + my heavy bolter predator to a wreck… Hooray! Typhus has to walk! My zombies also went zombie walk style through difficult terrain. Ooh well I learnt that I have to watch out for placement traps of the opponent.  Lose for me

Avengers Necron Army!
Third battle was a fun battle. Versus Biker Nurgle Lord, Nurgle Spawns, 40cultists, 10 possed, 2 vindicators and 2 hellbrutes. This was the battle where my zombies where the units of the match. Really did a good job! This battle was a lose.
I had a good time at the tournament.  Instead of two time losing. It should have been win, lose, draw. Ooh well! Next time better! 24th November on Warpstorm!
