Last week's recap (now that I have photos).

o/

As is so often the case with me, there was really no focus on the gaming front last week. Instead I did a little of this & a little of that. We're quickly heading into the best part of Autumn as well, so my time spent outdoors has spiked here of late as well. But anyways, here's what I got:


First off, I stripped, modified & repainted my Battletech APCs. Now painted as the 'local podunk militia'.  The bits added make them look a hellova lot better in my opinion. However the problem with that is, I only had enough to do 2 of the 5 that I have. I sent a parts query to Dream Pod 9 to see if I could get some more w/o buying another Bear/Mad Dog blister (that I don't need). So far there's been no response, so these may just be it for the podunks, will have to wait & see.


Secondly, I found & painted up my last Quar Royalist. When painting the others I belatedly realized I was missing one. He had gotten mixed into the pile of unassembled Crusaders (their arch enemies). Speaking of the Crusaders, I have 2 assembled and one half painted now. Wil see how that one comes out before I go any further I suppose.

Lastly, last Sunday Screech & I went to play in Morristown. I brought my Red Corsairs which were the only army of mine to not yet be fielded in 6th ed. Once again I got tabled, though to be honest it was a fairly close fought game. I was tabled by the same Nidzilla list that my 'Fluff Bunny Eldar' tabled some ways back, and when my last model fell, all that was left of the Nids were 2 Tervigons that had about 4 wounds between them (of which I think half had been regenerated). So yeah, was a good game.

Actually, the Corsairs will translate rather well into 6th I think. Aside from a rhino & Predator that I've added, they have no other vehicles, just bulk infantry. They have a havoc squad of 4 missile launchers meaning I'll have anti-air capabilities whenever I get the funds to buy the $50 Chaos coffee table book (of all of the complaints of the old codex, I never heard anyone say: I wish they'd almost double the price of the new one).

Also the corsairs came with a fair number of Daemons. While I'm not especially fond of the idea of getting that book, I suppose I'll have to for an allied contingent, and they will be lead by a demon named 'Harold' (...snicker...). Also, I had a thought on the Strighori Vampire you see at left. The army came with a bunch of those which I presume were meant to be possessed. However given do you think anyone would mind them being used as Warp Talons (whose models I don't much care for)?

And that about covers everything. This evening Hive Angel and his supposedly 'veteran' battletech force will once again be invading the Taurian Concordat. My 3rd. Red Lancers & one of the Podunk APCs above (used as an LRM variant) shall be valiantly fending them off, or trying to anyways...

I can't of a reason that wouldn't make a good counts as for warp talons. It clearly doesn't look like the regular jump infantry and as long as it's not similar to your normal generic demons that might be in the list, I'd think it'd be 100% fine.

The Demons are Demonettes & Plague bearers, so its an obvious difference. Will need that codex to use them as allies anyways. I don't think anyone would mind me using these as Warp Talons, but figured it would be a good idea to post the idea for some outside opinions.

you have a bunch of strigo and you never tokdvkevlll..... slow down. use words. you never told me!?! they are my favorite vampire and I could never find the models for them.

I have an extra that was removed from its fancy base because its missing a wing. You can have it if you want it.

Hive Angel said...

I would sell it to him and make a profit like a certain Lascannon pack of dice you have.

Da Masta Cheef said...

lol! Last I heard the offer on the lasGUN power pack set was $5. Still holding out on that one...

As for the vamp., I don't recall strighoris having wings actually, so one missing may not be an issue as the other would need to go as well.

It's a fun list, those daemons. I can't wait to give them a shake in 6th ed... the cultist shall herald the return of She Who Milks! LOL

Makes a note to have the Dead Milkmen playing in the background...
