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).
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...
