One more game at 2000 points in today

First up, is a picture of the board at the beginning of my turn 2.

You'll notice not a lot of Dark Eldar actually *on* the board... nor, for that matter, a lot of Grey Knights on the board.  Mordrak had come in the first turn (with his two ghostly bodyguards), and then I delayed everything else that I could on turn two via Psychic Communion (one Dread Knight just wanted to get to the party early).  The Dark Eldar player was playing a Duke Sliscus list - The Duke, 3 units of Trueborn in Venoms, 4 units of Kabalite Warriors in Venoms, 2 units of wyches with a Haemonculus' joining each for the pain token love in Raiders, 2 Ravagers and a Razorwing.  He came in piecemeal via deepstrike thanks to the Duke's special rules, and I was able to pick him apart enough to only loose one unit of knights, 3 others spread from the two remain squads and each dread knight had soem wounds... he was left with a weaponless venom, an immobile ravager pointing the wrong direction, and un-damaged venom - but was able to deny me my primary victory (I had scoring units on both objectives, but he was contesting with the venoms).  I was able to score the secondary (the one other objective) and the tertiary (victory points).

Here's a close-up of Mordrak and the Ghosts.

... and no, Mordrak's not painted - only primed.

The next few weekends are going to be quiet for playing - next week we're going on a little family trip and the weekend after that is Easter.  I don't think I can get out of that with two little girls...  :)

Game 2 vs. Space Marines

Basically, he spread out a little too much and I could piecemeal him down. A few more casualties received this time... But, still not too bad. I'm starting to get a decent handle on this army.

Game 1 today

2000 pts of Grey Knights vs. Ork Battle Wagons.... of Doom!

He lasted till my 6th turn. Casualties received - 1 Ghost Knight, 2 GK Terminators, and 1 Dreadknight that was tank-shocked off the board.

I've got to get my numbers up...

...the wife is kicking my ass.

One done Beast of Nurgle for "Smells Like Team Spirit"

Chaos Warrior doubling as a Nurgle Warrior.


Ghoul doubling as my Rotters.

And finally, the whole team.  Signed, sealed and well, not delivered - cause they're mine for this year's Blood Bowl Championship Series at Kublacon.

I think I've hit the weight limit of a Battlefoam Custom Tray

25 Wraithguard, plus the 3 warlocks for them. 

Granted, this is more than I could get from a Sabol Tray...  :)

Base coat down

One fine coat of the silverish gold spray paint. Getting them ready to go one to the wife's painting bench. She's almost done with the Nurgle repaint (pictures when she's done).
