Well, I got schooled last night in deep striking by Alan and his Daemons. We played Annihilation with a Pitched Battle deployment. I did enjoy the game mind, and learnt a few lessons from it such as don't get first turn against Daemons when you too are mainly deep striking your army!
The scouts didn't redeem themselves, I think only the Heavy Bolter Hellfire rounds did anything, and even that wasn't really worthwhile! These boys get two more chances, then they are gone, and they only get that because the Assault Squad isn't ready yet!
Highpoint of the game was when the last remaining Ironclad took the last wound from the Daemon Prince... by exploding! I'll take the small victories where they crop up!
Another mistake was that I inexplicably combat squaded my Tacticals again, but cannot for the life of me understand why!
I'm convinced that the loss was done to me, not the list (though facing Alan didn't help matters!) so I'll persevere! I'm hoping to squeeze in a game against Nick and/or Ben with these guys soon, so we shall see how things go!
So, onwards! Blood Bowl starts this week, and at the time of writing I have no idea whether I can get to the club to take part. Although I'd love to take part, Mart's campaign looks to be starting soon, so we shall see.
Not much progress on the modelling front as I was in the Big Smoke at the weekend. Another Drop Pod has been assembled and I'm now trying to decide what shall be next. Really it ought to be the Assault Marines, but for some reason known only to my subconscious, I keep putting these off!
