Revisiting my Widow Weaver for some touch ups.
Even more leaked dwarf models….Yup, definitely gunna be poor this February.
I am loving the look of the new Ironbreakers! I know quite a few people that will be broke next month I am sure!
Love the Ironbreakers helmets! Still no facemasks though…
Now this I can work with! The hammerers need a face mask and perhaps a different helmet though.
Yesterday I played my first 40k game since last autumn. As It had been a while I dusted off my Eldar army. He used Necrons and we played the mission Purge the Alien.
The Eldar after their first movement phase and the Necron deployment.
I used my Wave Serpents and every other unit that could reach to kill of the Scarap swarm on the top side, granting me first blood. The rest of my army shot up most of the Wraiths, except the last one who charged (and was killed) by my Farseer after a round of combat.
The Warp Spiders arrived (after a mishap the previous turn) and I started working on the second Scarab swarm, only managing to kill half the unit. I also shot the Warrior unit close to the tower and moved up my Serpents on the other flank. Not seen on the picture is my Wraithlord in combat with the Spyders.
I tried some fancy moves with the Swooping hawks, unable to kill a single Necron, and the Spyders killed one of my Wraithlords. I also continued pouring fire into the Necron Warrior units.
The second Wraithlord and the Fire Dragons killed of the Spyder unit and I continued to shoot at the Necron warriors, who continued to reanimat… *sigh*. Not seen on the picture is that the second Scarap unit finally was killed off after having eaten both the Warp Spiders and the Vypers.
Ignorant of that the Necron Lord had Mindshackle scarbs I charged the Wraithlord into the unit. Trying to save the Wraithlord I charged in my small Dire Avenger unit, the Fire Dragons and the Farseer. I challenged the Necron Lord to a duel with the Farseer to draw off some heat from the Wraithlord. After two turns of combat I had yet to kill off the Warriors and the Necron Lord (stupid reanimation protocols) and he managed to slay my Farseer, who also was my warlord.
The game ended 8-7 in favour of the Eldar. I got points both for first blood and line breaker and managed to kill his weaker units. His more resilient units though managed to survive my firepower and managed to kill off enough of my units to make It a really close game when he killed my Warlord. A good game in all.
My BEST posts of 2013

Thanks for the notice. :-) Yes I had heard Dp9 are working on the next edition and I will probably try to play more once they get it rolling. The game have some really cool mechanics and much promise but its a bit to cumbersome at the moment.
First test game of Heavy Gear Blitz! After several houers of fierze fighting on the main street we concluded that it was to much work to kill off the oposing force and ended the game.
I liked the Dropzone commander city terrain though.
Some old 1.5 models I use to support my Lady Justice crew. The Student of Conflict do way more for the crew then the Scales of Justice. Lady Justice with fast is a threat to most of the table. The Executioner is good, but as I’m mostly playing 40 ss the Judge is most often a better choice. The Austringer is simply amazing and no Guild crew should be without at least one.
The battle lines arrayed for battle. I was playing my 35 pts Rahn list against AngelSanguines 35 pts Rhyas list. The scenario was Capture and controll.
First turn movements.
The Legion advance aggresively. Daring the Retribution to strike.
The Dawnguard Sentines takes the bait.
Rhyas activates her feat, move into the Sentinel formation, kill three and then move off. The Sentinels are later finished by the Warspears.
The other unit Warspears terrifies the Battle mages, preventivt them from taking action in their next turn.
And the Carniviean spray ten damage on Rahn to finish up a devastating turn.
With nu other options I desperately decide to go for a caster kill. Rahn declares a feat turn and smashes away the Carnivian who then gets killed by the Stormfall archers. The Magister then whiplashes the Manticore into position to strike directly at Rhyas. The Manticore just manager to kill her, winning me the game.
The Guilds Judgement starter box with the alternate Lady Justice (as I dont like the new plastic one).
Thank you! I tried to copy the colour scheme from the starter box. They could use some more highlights though.
