Anyways, my 'adopted little brother' Screech is shipping out to US Army boot camp this coming Tuesday. His family has taken (appropriately I suppose) all of his free time in his last few days of civilian life (though he's already gone to a few drills with the local National Guard unit). That said, Saturday's gaming at the FLGS was renamed 'Screech's 40k gaming extravaganza!' where we were to give him a proper 40k send off!
Below I have a few pics out our game, in which I still hate the Tervigon, even after getting beaten by the Nerf bat. The Fem Fa'Tau (with a handful of Arbitrators as counts-as-IG in support) hunkered down in a Pickett's charge like scenario. Neverness has more pics of the day's games here.
I swear we mowed down this horde of gribblies at least twice (thanks to the tervigon's efforts). Screech told me what unit was what, but they all look a like to me.
The Tau's fold-a-fort (aegis) drew many compliments during the night, and formed the anchor of the Tau's game long, static deployment.
The Stealth Suits did try to gun down 'momma' but to no avail given its high toughness and heay armor. They died to the last whilst only inflicting 1 wound on the monster (and it survived the game, grrr...).
So it was a fun night and we wish Screech the best in the coming months of basic and AIT training ahead!
