A change of Scene

Tonight, being Monday, Smiffy and I popped along to meet up with the members of a gaming group called The Kentish Rogues. They're a welcoming bunch and I was soon involved in a six player game, Necrons and two seperate Tyrannid forces v Space Wolves, Imperial Guard and Tau. On the second table, forces of the Imperium battles against a mass Orc war band which I suspect may have been comprise of a couple of different clans.
Our table was limited to 750 points and despite our best efforts the combined Tyrannid and Necron forces were out matched by the opposing side, I think the end result was the opposing side holding an objective whilst we held none, so it meant a loss for my team.
My problem was that with 750 points I cant get a Monolith on the table, if I had done then, possibly, game would have had a different end result.

I've been thinking about my Tau army a lot over the past few weeks, it's a shame that they're sitting in boxes waiting to be painted, especially when I consider the Forge World model I have for the force.

I managed to get a few photos from tonight and I shall post them on The Hythe Tyrant facebook page and I shall try and post them on the Kentish Rogues forum.

I've been reading a lot of the possible changes to the Necron Codex, this may be out early next year. I have to admit that I'm really looking forward to the realease as it could mean that the Necrons will be re-established as a force to be reckoned with, plus some of the models that I've put off getting for my collection because of expense will be available in plastic. this means that I'll bee able to add some powerful units to my force will, all being well, will make them very difficult to beat, huzzah. It's been a while since I've had anything to look forward to release wise, But given the fact that I favour my the Necrons over the Space Marines I reaaly can't wait to see what the powers that be do with the souless machines.

I should really disregard the Marines, I have a good force and when I finish the models that are still boxed they too will be quite formidable on the battlefield, although I suspect that the Chapter Aurelius could benefit from the addition of at least one squad of assault marines. I'll have to have a game with Smiffy to give it a try out, you never know.

The next Sunday meet up for the Hythe Tyrant "adult" division will be December 12, in addition to a minimum 750 point army, mince pies will be compulsory.

Hope to see as many of you there as possible, ta ta for now.
May the goddess Randomonia bless your dice rolls.
