fun and games

hello all, First I must apologise for the lack of activity on the blog, things have gotten away from me this week and I've not been able to write up a battle report on the Sunday session.

Once again a big thank you to the guys who turned up for the day.

So far as the battles went, Dan took on Mikey in an all out effort to get the young padawan up to speed on some of the rules. Imperial Guard v Blood Angels, I have no idea of the result, but I think Dan took the victory. I took on Smiffy in an epic battle between Chaos Space marines and The Necrons. It gave me a chance to field my beautifully painted Deceiver; I've taken my Necrons up against Steve's CSM's before and usually fare quite well. This time was different. For some reason Steve's marines were not going down to the gauss fire as easily as they usually do. the addition of a Chaos dreadnought armed with a multi-melta was also a worry. At least I had a primary target, that and the havoc squad that were encamped on top of a building. Necron Destroyers tore into them, brining their number down by just under half. If I remember correctly, the Dread was bought to a standstill by the Monoliths particle whip.  the game resulted in a draw, although I really think Steve had it, he turned the battle around in turn three, then in turn four his Terminator squad and Infiltrators plus the Terminator lord and his retinue finally stopped playing poker, realised there was a battle going on and finally came in on deep strike. It was at this point I started to lose my lead. So although Steve called it a draw, I think it's weighted more in Smiffy’s favour.

I'm looking for a rematch and I'm fairly sure that Steve will be happy to oblige.

The next adult session is arranged for the 13th of June.

I've also set up a forum that will be open to all to make use of. If you have any ideas for boards, please get in touch and let me know. You can send me messages via the yahoo group, or you can mail me via The forum can be found here:
