40K Failure!

Here is an image of what was left of the Biel-Tan host. The couple of guys in white uniforms in the upper left? Only Eldar left alive, everything else on the table was green and had huge tusks. Spectacular loss! 2 Wraithlords, an Avatar, a troupe of harlequins, 10 rangers, and 10 dire avengers got Waaghd to death. My kills consisted of a bunch of grots, a squadron of 4 deff kopters, and like 2 boyz mobz. Need to put more speed in my army against these damn greenskins!

First 40k smackdown!

So it's not my first smack down, but the first one with Lori, with my terrain. Oh yeah, and her first go at 40k. Here is the set-up. Observe the choke point right there in the middle...

Here is Loris Orkie hoard, ready to Waaaaggh all over my Eldar. Scary!

Here be my Eldar, trying to hide out, and stay in a position to shoot shoot shoot as long as possible...

Right off the bat, had a sweet plan involving shooting goblins, and then charging war-trakks. Not a very awesome plan, these chunky ass jalopies are covered in armor. The thick kind that my weak little space elves can't poke through :(

Here is what's left of the goblins I shot to shit though. Pretty awesome! After the Trakks I assaulted kind of just ignored me, I sent my Dire Avengers over here to stab them in they face holes.

This is the kind of mess that started to occur after midnight. Hordes of hardened greenies dog-piling my Avatar. Boooo!

So tomorrow, when I wake up, this is the cluster fuck of a fight I have to finish. Might be easier by the light of day. Really don't understand why I didn't apply the Risk "don't play after the sun goes down" rule of thumb.

Eldar terrain

I've been trying to build a set of Eldar specific terrain. Stuff that will give me a tactical advantage, like forests and sniper towers. Here are some pics of them, with my Avatar and a couple of Wraithlords standing by them. The other one is a fungi forest, originally built for Gorkamorka.


Just like Gorkamorka, all of my Necromunda terrain has disappeared over the years. This is a big problem, because in order to play Necromunda, you NEED multilayer industrial terrain. Therefore, I will now scratch build replacements out of foam core and junk bits. Here is the beginings of the first building.

Current gaming

It's been a loooong time since my last post. This is because life has become too chaotic to regularly schedule Dnd time. So now I've been focusing on all things relating to Warhammer 40K. I've been buying up and painting butt-loads of Eldar. The way I've been regulating my purchases has been to completely paint a purchase before going out and buying more. It's worked like a charm, I have like 2000 points completely painted.

Another thing I've been doing is making and painting terrain. It started with me needing an Ork fort for Gorkamorka. The original box came with one, but over the last fifteen years, that flimsy piece of cardboard has long since been thrown away. So here are some pics of the one I built.
