Multicase, round 2!

Got a couple more cases today. These 2 hold my Blood Angels Double Deathstar, with some space left over for a few more.

What am I gonna fill those gaps with now, eh? Thanks to Rage in 6th ed, I'm thinking Death Company! A word to the wise, though...

Khador players rejoice!

I knew it! I knew it! I looked at the Demolisher, Spriggan and Devastator and verily, I said to myself, THAT is a plastic kit waiting to happen, and lookie what just turned up on the Privateer Press website:

Hell, I'm grabbing at LEAST 2 of those, thank you very much! On a side note, I didn't realize it before, but with the shield arms locked in front like that, does the Devastator not look like a humongous helmet on legs?

The Butcher of Khardov marches...

... and all who march with him are painted!

... except for Kovnik Joe. There some bits of him that I've yet to decide how to paint, i.e. his gauntlets, cuffs, pauldrons, and weapons. I mentioned this list in the previous post, together with the breakdown of what does what, so I won't bore you by repeating myself. What I will say is that this list is fun, flexible and kicks HARD. And now it's just about tabletop ready, it's a joy to send into battle; 26 models of satisfying Warmachining fun. :-)

In other news, I've just gotten in my first game of 6th ed 40k, fielding Necrons against Chaos Space Marines at 1,000 pts. I think I like it! Of course, that's easy for me to say, when I have one unit which can roll 40 dice of BS4 gauss weapons and put pretty much any vehicle out of commission... I'll have a couple more games at 1750 pts and see how my Necrons fare. My Necron list is more or less identical to the one I've always used, with a small change: The Phaeron upgrade is now out, Sempiternal Weave is in. Woe betide the poor fool who engages my Overlord in a challenge alone! If the Mindshackle Scarabs don't get you, the Phase Shifter will keep the Overlord alive to deliver 3 attacks with the mighty Warscythe. Meanwhile, the Cryptek watching from the sidelines gives him a reroll, thanks to the Chronometron, and the moral support from the 20 Warriors gives another 4! This was used to devastating effect in a game last night where a winged Daemon Prince hurled himself at my Crimson King...

Anyway, that's it from me. Stay tuned and we'll see if we can't make a batrep happen...

My first games at 35 pts

I've been getting a couple of games in at 25 and notably 35 points over at Warpspace games lately and it has been most enlightening. I've been led to understand that 35 pts in Warmahordes (Hormachine?) is more or less the equivalent of a 1750 pt game of 40k. I was a little skeptical at first. After getting murdered a few times at 35 pts, this is the best I can muster with the models I have:

The Butcher
5 Man-O-War Shocktroopers
3 Man-O-War Bombardiers
10 Winter Guard Infantry + 2 Rocketeer + Unit attachment
Kovnik Josef Grigorovich

In retrospect, this isn't quite the best use of my points. Here's a dissection of the army.

No! Multicase! KR Multicase! I just ordered one from the website. Nothing fancy, just a tough cardboard box to keep my Warmachine army cheerfully encased in foam. I am pleased. Pics follow.
