Screech and I met R.T.Voril (thanks again to him for the photos) yesterday for what was supposed to be a tournament in Morristown. However no one else showed up, so instead he kindly walked us thru our first game of 6th ed instead (all the while asking variations of 'do ya get it, can we go eat chicken now?' which is where this post's title came from). Figuring on a tourney while not knowing the 6th ed rules, I opted to over compensate with brute firepower, while Screech just said 'screw it' and used one of his preexisting mech IG lists.

Speaking of leaf blowers, Screech had his usual all vets in Chimeras (barring the one squad with the mortar and sniper rifles), Straken's command squad, Pask in a vanquisher and a standard Leman Russ (no Valks though...).
We fought long table edge to long table edge, 5 objectives, only the 1st turn was night fight, bad air...or something turned all HTH wounds into poisoned attacks (we forgot to use that), my warlord trait gave my command squad Counter-attack whilst in my deployment zone, however being close combat oriented and in a chimera, it was a waste. Straken's trait put a -1 on my non-existent reserves. I'm sure we forgot a lot of things (like snap firing at charging units, and what the objectives do till the tail end of the game) but it was still fun...for me anyways.

In the end I didn't table him, as the game ended with 5 'loyalist scum' still on the table. I had one objective to his none, plus had the first blood VP, though by game's end I'd lost all units in his deployment zone so no line breaker points. We had to berate Screech to agree to try his army again a few more times in other scenarios before shelving it (and with perhaps using his 2 Valkyries?).
We then packed up and went to Zaxby's, where they killed chicken with fire...and breading.
