It's been a while

So, it's been from february that I wrote something. I've been to two tournaments and one training day since that. The Green Knight Doubles Tournament was a succes as the guys from The Green Knight allways do a great job.

Had some great but tough battles that day. Orcs & Necrons was versus the first battle. Second was against sister of battle with imperial guard. The final battle was Tau and Dark Angels, a weird but evil combo. Since Tau is getting a new codex, I will see them soon enough on the boards.

Than the Thunderbolts in Gent did a small tournament. which was fun but the rules changed during the game. The rules weren't all that clear.
It was their first 40k tournament, so no problem. Who knows how our tournament will be from Replay? I fought that day against Space Wolves, Eldar and Nurgle Marines. Good battles and learned some extra stuff.
Flamers in all kind of colours
The training day was good to learn that guard are indeed evil bastards and can be great allies. Damn mortars with S9 AP3 and T7? Damn... Don't know if they are Forgeworld or codex, I should look that up.  I went for a minor loss because we both didn't had the primary objective complete.
I learned it the hard way that I'm using my lord too aggressive... Next battle I placed him behind Rhino. and that went much better.
Fight was against an Imperial Guard army with Ork allies, nob bikers with painboy. Luckily only the painboy survived before he got into combat. 2plasma shots killed the Warboss. Go Papa Nurgle!
My oppontent also rolled bad with scatter dice and such.... Plaguebearers are great objective campers, I should paint some more, the Great Unclean one is also a beast. But next time I'm giving him different awards.

Great Unclean One loves Papa Nurgle
My last battle was versus Thousands Suns. A minor loss because we both didn't do the primary objective. His chaos lord became a Daemon Prince though... Pretty cool!
For the tournament I'm gonna place my aegis defence line not on the exact 12" line but more behind, so that I can place rhino's and the lord before. I can place my havocs behind them and do more damage in this way. I'll have to see how the terrain will be placed. I might have to change my tactic then.

If been thinking about taking Necron allies BUT... I'm not so sure about that. Here is why: their is the 3 flyer restriction which results in a complete overhaul new tactic. One of my thought is taking a daemon prince with black mace. I'm gonna have to test that. Or maybe an extra Helldrake and switch Typhus for a biker lord, then again I don't have a burning brand that way. Oooh, I will see!
Necrons & Chaos: Fluff wise correct?
I painted a hellbrute with plasma cannon,  a Havoc squad, some bikers and, a Khorne lord.

Seems like I have forgotten to take a picture from the bikers I have painted. Ooh well next time!

I'm currently working on an extra havoc squad, a Great Unclean One and 2 bikers left on the desktop.

  1. realy nice work tom, really LOVE the hell brute! awesome!

  2. Thanks! I also have an extra one to paint :) I'll see when I have time for that one. This was more a lets built him like this for fun. Think a Hellbrute with Twin Linked Lascannon & Missile Launcher is better.
