Still, having far too many armies (50k+ of Imperial Guard, Marines, Eldar, Orks, Tyranids) that I've invested time and alot of money in, I thought it was time to dip my toe back in the 40k pool.
So it was last Monday night that 1000pts of 'Da Bloody Fistz' squared off against the finest the pointy eared Eldar could bring, ably commanded by Alex 'Axle Foley' Foyster. His beautifully painted army contrasted with my foundationpaintandbadabblackwash speed painted orks. You can see more of Alex's Eldar at the HobbyBrush, here.
We rolled corner to corner deployment, with multiple objectives (I finally got to use the objective token set I bought when the rulebook was released).
|Shock-attak!! Who doesn't want to teleport snotlings inside people??|
Then the objective I was sitting on with grotz and my Big Mek with shock attack gun exploded. It was a booby-trapped objective. This caused me to fail the Ld test, and off ran my Grotz and big mek. No shock attack gun for me turn one. Grrr.
|Stomp Stomp Stomp|
|Deff from da skies!|
|Would have rammed him too - if I had paid for the red paint.....|
|The Burna Boyz mess up the green onez dat smell funny|
|Lotz choppin - a propper scrap!|
