That was fun Not played sam for a long time and we always have a great chat when we play, Well that was an interesting game I could really get in to planet strike lots of very close up fire fights and piles of dead. So to start off sam used a Planet bomb on my force taking 2 builds out before the game even started (my command bunker and the watch tower) and this also pinned 4 of my units, then he roll for his firestorms and got 8 I was thinking this is really going to hurt but my plan of using multi level terrain in my base paid of right away and most of his 8 templates missed or hit a Leman russ tank and failed to get past the armour, But two hit my HQ and between them they wiped it out. well here are some photos. deployment and turn 1
turn 2
Turn 3
Sam had no drop pods so we used the black pipe caps shown here.
Turn 4
After this Charge by the Orgyns Sam Surrendered with just 6 marines, a land raider and a Predator

Photos of deployment for my Planet strike game vs sam

Hello I will try and do a few photos and comments as the game goes no not a real battle report just a quick idea of how it goes and photos. so to start with deployment and my army list. 2000 Point Guard List Deployment photos
Will be back later after the game is done with more photos and a what happened.
I have my 1st planet strike game tomorrow so I have been working on building more terrain and working on my army list and at the same time been doing some painting on my chaos Decimator its looking good but taking a long time as its hugh about twice the size of a normal dreadnought. I been playing around with the terrain for the planet strike game and have even pulled out the old GW firebase to use as one of the buildings for the game. I have gone for an army with alot of troops and a few russ's the plan is to keep as many units at different levels so they can support each how but avoid the firestorms and close combat units as best I can and make him work for every kill as much as I can as well and adding terrain every where to slow him down. A few pictures of the 1st lay out of the table with my new terrain and the WIP Decimator.

Dam its been a month since I last posted, so here goes, I now have 9 finished bases of Smurfling and a half painted Hellblade. Last week I played 2 games of Warhammer (the 1st two in over 2 years) I used my Dark Elfs as my Skaven are not ready yet, I 1st played a High Elf army and won 210 points vs 1600 then I toke on the beastmen and won 235 vs 1600, So a very good start to my return to warhammer. Last Saturday was Salute and I ended up spending £370 on the day, I got some great deals and spent all of sunday building the MDF building I got and the walkways, I am liking them a lot and will be getting more soon, I still got to work how I want to paint them. I also got a Forge World Decimator Looks great and is big makes a dreadnought look small. I am going to paint it in parts before I build all of it as I dont think I could get to a lot of the wires if I built it all. I also got 6 Skaven jezzeils normaly £60 for £36 almost half price. I did have a 40k game planed for the sunday but that got cancelled. I will try and get some photos up soon.

If any one wants to know the list it will be :-

Fatewearver - 333
Lord of change - 250 583

9 X Flamers - 345

A typical thing to happen

Typically I have had a modelling drill laying on the side for about 6 years and not really used it in the last 3-4 years relaying more on my blades and files to do all the work I have needed to do. So when Ox asked to loan it for a bit I did not think twice about it now about 2 weeks later I am working on my hydra model and its got 8 bits I need to drill. O well I will talk to ox about it tomorrow seeing as it's only 8 small bits I may just ask to meet and use it then he can use it to finish what he needs it for.

Also this weekend I have done some more work on the 6mm train track. its slow going but is getting there and I have 80% of a tray ready to be vanished so will try and get the rest of that tray done Tuesday night.

My ban on my self of eBay this month made it till the 6th when I went on to check the price on a card case I got from forbidden plant as I want a 2nd one, I did not find one but as I was on there I did find a load of crates for 28mm games and I ended up buying a few of them.

The deck boxes I ordered for Warhammer invasion have all turned up and I got about 500 free clear sleeves with them so all my cards for the forces of order will go in them and my force of destruction will go in the black ones I got before. I am having to get a 2nd case for the forces of order to go in as the 1st one is packed tight and I still dont have all the decks that are out yet.I plan next pay day to buy the remaining decks.
