First, Seti's house for a 50PL engagement. Custom scenario, one where we had to cross the board to get individualized relics. I brought Imperial Guard, Seti had the fearsome Night Lords.
|The "Beetles" Infantry Squad approach the Night Lords, who had cloaked themselves in darkness. A Ministorum Priest chants litanies of war in the back of the party.|
|Ratling Snipers take up a position behind a broken fence line.|
|The Night Lords approach.|
|Larry's Boyz take aim at a rhino. These rhinos were my bane in this game- I just couldn't wound them!|
After a late night of gaming and movie watching at Seti's place I moved on to breakfast with Nigel, and over to Downer Hardware.
|Deployment upon the coconut encampment.|
|Iron Warriors lined up in droves.|
|I love these models.|
|These Iron Warrior havocs on the rooftop were raining missiles down upon my troops all game long.|
|The "Poor Bastards" run forward in a mad dash to capture the objective.|
|Melkor steps out of his rhino chariot...|
|Unfortunately for the Bastards, Melkor would not let this kind of behavior last very long.|
|Not a matching shirt, but a good shirt.|
|Play in action.|
|Grey Knights face off along the streamed against a Demon host.|
|Jedly's Grey Knights.|
|More imperial guard shenanigans. This was Game Two of Monday, me and Romba1 against EthMongul and Lord Boroth, 75PL each.|
|Romba's Ultramarines look spectacular.|
|Some of the Death Guard of Ethmongul.|
|The defensive firing line of the Iron Warriors.|
|My Ratlings on the rooftop.|
|Two thumbs up.|
|Seriously, you do NOT want to charge this guy.|
|Marines and Imperial Guard being all buddy-buddy.|
|Romba's Ultramarine Primaris.|
|Scions mixing it up with a Death Guard sorcerer.|
|Hey... why didn't he take any pictures of my models?|
So this was great. I lost my first game against Seti- it was close. I did really well in my next two games, thinking my Imperial Guard are starting to click. Punisher tanks are really mean. I don't think my opponents liked me tooling up the punisher with a tank HQ that would allow it to re-roll 1's on 40 Strength 5 shots.
Thanks Ethmongul for a great time, and to everyone in D-Company for making it well worth the drive from Madison.
