The answer is "six" by the way. Six dreadnoughts hurt. A lot. Fun game though - everything went into reserve for fun - and then most of them didn't want to come out and play... Mek with SAG actually killed a few things... it was amazing. Imaging this scene with 5 drop pods, roughly 25 marines, 4 dreadnoughts, a tech marine and vulkan in the middle... that's about what the end of turn 6 looked like. :)
I sat down for this game with one request - Could I please only fight 1 land raider. This game seemed to reverse all my (bad) luck from the previous 3 games. I could hit, I could wound, I could save... it was a miracle - I was rolling average! :)
Terminators in lower left had some issues hitting my nobs (they were in a land raider), and the terminators in the upper left - I stayed away from.
So, we went camping this weekend. Had a wonderful time in the mountains with the family. The plan was to come back on Sunday and work on the display board for the Orks.
In reality, we had a lovely side trip that included one of these:
$170 for a tow from Pendleton to Walla Walla. It went down hill from there... Got the 'burban back today. And got to work more on the display board.
Everything's glued down nice and good, cutouts are in for the bikes. There's a layer of sheet metal for the magnets on the bikes. The black is a custom mixture of black paint, elmer's glue, and water to help seal the foam-core. I'm going to layout the bikes, put down the ballast and then paint a new layer on everything, seal it, and go...
