|rogue.trader.voril in all his glory...|
Screech and I paired down our IG and Aurora lists into 2-1k split force org lists while Voril boosted his DE up to 2k. As Screech and I are holding out for the starter boxes with the little rulebooks, we just played good ol' 5th ed. The other guys in the background (no idea what it is, but looks like there is something red taped to the back of that guy's head...) were trying out 6th ed and kept asking me for rules clarifications (despite repeatedly telling them all I knew about 6th ed was gleaned from blogs as I don't have the rulebook). I think they were using 5th ed night fight with the whole game in night fight...Dunno, we didn't pay them too much attention but there seemed to be much anger over there...
|Goodbye outflank & charge.|
However I know in 6th ed., any units that outflank/arrive from reserve will not be able to charge on the turn that they arrive (rumor has it Snikrot will be outflanking on ebay quite soon...). Guess I'll finally have to assemble that landspeeder storm I got last year... It was a good game and followed by dinner, a good day. Which is something I really needed as I had had a pretty rough weekend prior to that point (yes Madival, GF aggro is indeed bad).
On the painting front, last week's painting came to a paltry total of the lone battlemech you see above. It is a Hoplite, which can be used by both inner sphere mercs & the clans (different variants of course). Luckily the 2 units I've settled on for those 2 factions have the exact same color scheme, so I'll be able to swap this mech back & forth depending on whichever faction I'm playing.
