Game 6 and 7... Amazons.

Game 6 was a 1-1 tie vs Orcs.  Tight game, didn't earn anything in the SPP run of things.

Game 7 was a 4-1 win vs. Humans.  Did *lots* of leveling on this one.

Game 5, vs Elf

4-1 win... Played most of the second half with only 8 players on the pitch.

Start of Game 4 - vs Dwarf

Turned out to be a 1-1 tie... 5 of my girls into the casualty box. 1 dead blitzer.

Amazon's game 1, 2, and 3..

We've started our new season at the Friendly (not-so) Local Gaming Store.  We decided to start it at 1.1m, and 1 free FF for painted teams.
Game 1 vs. Dwarfs (Dwarves?).  4-0 win.  Only casualty received was a Miss Next Game for the Thrower "8-Ball".

Game 2 vs. Lizardmen.  4-1 win.  This picture was from his first - before my first turn.  How is that I have the ball halfway down the sideline you ask?  Well - you can see his line setup and the wedge formation be put the skinks in.  I picked up "Kick" for the line woman after first game, put it 4 squares in diagonally from the left side, and rolled a "Blitz" for the kick-off table.  I actually scored on my first turn.

Game 3 vs. Pro Elfs (Elves?).  4-2 win.  By the end of the game, I had 1 line woman in the casualty box... he had 6.  Only 3 scored me SPP... one was "Pebbles N. SlamBam" (appropriately enough) introducing the back of her boot to a catcher's head... honest ref, she tripped. 

So, after the first three games, I'm sitting with 1,390,000gp value, 20k in the bank, 16 players on the roster (one will miss next game), 13 of the ladies have SPP; and both catchers, 1 blitzer, 1 thrower, and 1 line woman have advancements.

Now, I just need to paint them...

Amazon Team, Impact!

So, I broke down and spent $35 on Impact!'s Amazon team.  It showed up about 10 days later.

 This what was in the package.  A bag of 16 resin models and 16 bases.

14 of the ladies are one piece models, only the one of the sets of blitzers needed to have their hands attached (not this one).

Here's a thrower - as you can see, it needs a little cleanup - but not too bad.

Below are some pictures after cleaning and putting on bases, and then a size comparison of a GW "official" bloodbowl model.

More pictures as they get painted will follow.  But, over all - I'd say the $35 team was a good deal.

"When the Ogres' broke free..."*

(*with apologies to Pink Floyd)

Was dipping the human team when the glue holding the ogre to it's base popped out, and the ogre went skidding across the lawn into the brush...

After Day 2 at OFCC

Two great games today. Game 4 was vs. a beautiful Vestroyan/Coteaz henchmen list. I ended up tabling him, highflying of the game was at the end - my two vendettas hovered to turn and open up on Coteaz. Six las cannons and six heavy bolter shots later.... I tabled him.

Game 5 was a speed round of Grey Knights (45 min). Ended up being tabled, but Crowe attempted to take out the dread librarian, failed, died, and the perils' on the "I take you with me" power".... this was after the dread exploded the Bastion, doing 15 wounds to the guys inside, killing them all, and making the assassin jump off the top and take a wound. It was an awesome game.

So, end of the tourney, I went 3-2 with my Descent of Orks with Orkpocalypese Now!

After day 1 of OFCC

I'm at two wins and 1 loss. The loss would have been a win had the game ended one turn earlier.

Game 1 was against Tau. Win. At the end of turn 6, I had Astorath, 1 DC, and both Vendettas. He had 3 drones. No one had anything to claim any of the three objectives - but I did have all the secondary and the bonus from killing the Ethereal.

Game 2 was against a SM/BA mix. Straight kill points. He had about twice as many KPs to start with as I did. Had it ended on turn 5 I would have tied on KP and won with line breaker and first blood. However, it went to turn 6 and I was wiped out. Contemptor Dread's setup for AA... Hurt.

Game 3 was against Guard with Daemons. It was Scouring. I had 5 points, first blood, and line breaker - he.... didn't. :)

I had my librarian furioso tar-pit into 50 guardsmen for 4 turns... It wasn't till his Greater Daemon got there - made his Inv saves to avoid the force weapon - and smash into the dread till those 5 guardsmen got out.

Good day.

...and done!

Got the grass on the last of the guys last night (sorry, no pics - the phone was in the other room).

Packed up the army, the dice, the tape measure, the templates, and books and set them by the door last night.  I've got my comic book army list printed and stapled this morning.

I think I'm good to go.

Here's a few pages of the comic:

Family Photo...

Done! (now, it's just to the basing)



Imperial Ork Allies.

Heavy Bolter team.

Plasma Guns

Misc Vet's


Tonight, I'm planning on setting everything out and start to work on the basing of the whole Descent of Orks list.  I'm borrowing the two Vendetta's from a friend for the tournament next week - with work and us moving there was no way in 9 levels of Hel that they were going to be painted (or even built for that matter).

Ghetto painting setup

So, I'm spending the weekend at my in-laws... but I have things I have to finish.  Enter, the ghetto painting table.

40k Tournament - 3 Games in

Got to play in a 2000 point tournament this weekend.  The missions were modified/created/bamboozled/whatever for a tournament in Alabama that one of the local guys go to every year.  This one was the short table edge deployment, objective in the center (yeah, in that building), dead units get you reinforcements only until you get a unit off the opponents table edge.  Only a character could get the magic sword in the middle - at which point, night would fall.

Lytro camera pictures from the day are here:

My army was the only thing I could find from the move - my undead Eldar.  In 13 years and 4 codecies, the list hasn't all that much.  Avatar (now with "Fast Shot"), 2x spiritseers, 2x10 wraithguard, 1x5 wraithguard in a waveserpent, 3 war-walkers with scatter lasers, 5 dark reapers (now with Starshot) in a waveserpent, and a battery of 2 d-cannons.  The real difference between the list from the 4th ed codex and this one is the spiritseers and toys.  Instead of being warlocks upgraded to spiritseers as part of the units of wraithguard, they're IC's.

Anyway, game 1 (pictured above) was vs. a SpaceWolf / Tau alliance.  I won, but not by much.  I used to joke that there were circles of death with this army, and it still holds true.  More so now, I think.

Game 2 was a Dark Angel/Space Marine alliance.  This was a three objective (two immobile, one mobile) with vortex missiles falling from the sky.  Starshot missles are mean...  :)  Win for Eldar, but just a squeaker.

Game 3 was vs Marines / Guard hybrid.  Kill points with corner deployment... oh, and a tornado running through the field.  This one reminded me that new Spiritseer powers aren't nearly as solid as the old warlock/spiritseer powers (I failed a *lot* of "Conceal" rolls).  Ended in a low point tie.

So, at the end of the day, I did go 2 wins and 1 tie - but not enough points to do anything other than have fun.  Prizes were a drawing for $10 cards and I picked up a tray of sabol foam for the dark reapers.

Game 17 and Post..

So, there are no pictures of Game 17.  Game 17 was "try and put garbage in Ray's pocket" - it was a fun game that I had a lot of people playing by the end of the weekend.

After Kubla report:
Kubla ended on Monday, so after the wife and I had dinner at the hotel (too tired to go anywhere else), we went back to the room and crashed.  4am alarm clock is waaaaay too early. 

Tuesday, we got up, got to the airport, and then flew back to Portland.  Picked up the kids and drove back to Walla Walla.  Needless to say, I was tired.  As was the wife.  As were the kids. 

I did get a Bloodbowl: Chaos Edition game in for the league I'm playing in and then passed out.
