Ok – I spent the weekend at the beach (Oregon Coast). I did not paint or do anything hobby related… Except for Disc Golf 😀.
I picked this stuff up in preparations for more Infinity hobby which waits behind my OFCC army. In a couple weeks we are going to have a learning game session at the club. If that goes well – we could launch into something bigger later (league perhaps ? I hope so!)
After getting back from the mini weekender I sat down and worked on my army. Not lots of progress to show at this point. Still trying to get everything on the same theme.
I did get a test figure started for my corsair troopers though. I’m trying to honor the old RT Eldar Pirate days – along with some new looks that match and unify the force. I think I’ve made a good start.
I’m hoping to do more this week.
We held our annual apoc game on black friday (nov 28)… At WoW in Portland, OR. It was great fun – I had a blast. The phantom titan was beastly – and I think I will not take it to another Apoc event unless there is another giant titan to spar with. The combined forces for “good” defeated the legions of chaos – in a somewhat slaughter.
The game was 30,000pts … 5k per player in 3 man teams. Here is the photo dump of the event.
Here we have assembled the side of “good”. … awaiting the side of chaos. “Good” consisted of Eldar (wraithguard-my ofcc army), an ArmorCast Scorpion, and the Phantom. IG air cav… tanks …tanks… and more tanks. A couple groups of IG Knights.. and some Space Marines and sisters. As you can see in the photos.
Initially the Chaos Warhound placement… but he thought better of it and slid to the far end (away from the Phantoms LOS).
Both sides are assembled!…
Those vortex rockets were sure annoying! (they help end the Eldar Scorpions time on the table).
Things get really messy those first couple rounds…
The short time they were on the table… the Hornets managed to rough up some spawn.
BACK YOU DAEMON SCUM!
Not sure whom finishes the Scorpion… but its days were numbered at this point. I did clear the table of a couple things before that happened.
Darn little pests… they did damage to my Phantom… but soon they were cleared away by a stomp with help from my wraith knight.
The Phantom really helped “cleanse” the table … those big D-cannon pie plate templates were NASTY.
This demon (blue one with wings…) did a bit of damage to the Phantom – too little too late. I stomped him… with help from my allies as well.
Now we’re just mopping up… I think we went to the 5th round. After the Phantom “one-shotted” the Chaos Warhound… things went pretty quickly.
Thanks for stopping by!
Here are a couple figures that I had finished right before TSHFT a few weeks ago. Jain Zar I started and completed in about two days… the warlock I just had to touch up to fit the wraithguard army paint scheme. I had hoped to post up more from this army, but looking closer I noticed that most of the figures are not up to my 100% finished army. So I will post up the completed units as I complete them.
Unfortunately, the new Eldar codex is over a year away… So I probably will not play them much in the coming year. I do plan on finishing up the Revenant Titan before the Black Friday apoc game. So there should be plenty of progress photos of that. Army wise I will probably concentrate on my Dark Eldar army.
Sometime soon I will start posting up some “archival” blogs – pulling old stuff from my old blog and posting them here… Compiled and compressing some of the content of course.
