The much-trailed Assyrian army has finally made it not only onto the table, but onto a plane, and into a 5-round competition in sunny (and rainy) Greece at the 2019 Patras Challenge.The Winged Lion of Assyria takes on three very different Roman armies, a Classical Indian and finally the Han Chinese in a series of battles fitted carefully in between bouts of extreme eating and drinking across a swathe of the Patrene nightlife's top venues.Watch as the the newly minted chariots and infantry, supported by archer cavalry do their very best on a number of different playing surfaces to dodge between the cakes, biscuits and pieces of lamb which attempt to prove more problematic than their enemies Even goats occasionally get a look in.Its all there in glorious sunshine, so roll up your Gyros, sizzle up some Spanakopita and chuck a halloumi slice on the bbq to enjoy these 5 consecutive reports !
Back to the battlefield in our TSA League, as past friday I faced the Astra Militarum forces of Peter, a person I hadn't played before in the club.Doling around in the middle of table currently, this battle might get me back in the race for the podium, but then of course it are the Guard, with all their massed tanks and infantry troops, while I will be trying out the reinvigorated Havocs this battle.My force, fielded with the 2.0 codex, was build around a heap of troops legging it to the other side in order to start slaughtering guardsmen (or at least, that is the plan), and Lucius will be joining as such a large mob of chainsword armed Marines.Supporting them will be another Marine squad as well as my beloved Noise Marines. A firebase, gathered around my Warlord for those precious re-rolls consists of two Quad Bolter rapiers, a Hellbrute and said Havocs with two heavy bolters and two chaincannons. My Sorcerer will be lurking nearby for those important Prescience spells, while a squad of Raptors w
The Combined Army returns with Greg at the helm to face my NCA in ‘Triangulation’, the second Mission in Paradiso Crossroads.
After the slaughter at the fallen ruin, the Marauders are on the hunt for the Sewer Rats and happen upon a small group in an Ambush!
The deadly trap is sprung! The slumbering magics of the Arcallurgists have exploded out into life with deadly results! Who will claim the Quicksilver Swords and who will fall victim to their flashing blades?!
Over the weekend Stuart ran a Napoleonic game for the Rejects, of which Myself, Ray and Surjit were able to take part. As usual, we picked sides randomly out of a figurative hat and I was the odd one out ('odd' being the operative word). I would be playing the Austrians facing off against a combined Saxxon/Bavarian force.SetupThe game Postie set up was a meeting engagement as lead elements of both sides encounter each other between a pair of vital river crossings in Moravia. The Saxonn/Bavarian forces outnumber the Austrians but the latter army has some better quality troops and generally better cavalry (and more of it). My Austrians are arrayed along a small ridgeline, approximately diagonal across the table.

Hi all,Well, last night I had one of the best games of 40k I’ve had in a very long time, possibly my best 8th edition game of all! 7 full turns and two armies slugging it out, tactical choices on both sides that affected the outcome of the game and played in a great spirit too. Thank you to my opponent James, I thought I’d do a quick report on how the game went (though I didn’t take detailed notes or photos). This game used the list from my last Primaris list evolution post.Read more »
As the Elves march to the field of battle to meet up with their Numenorian allies, Sauron has send forth two of his lieutenants to oppose and prevent the mighty Elven heroes Gil-Galad and Elrond of joining this Last Alliance.Okay, so this is it, the culmination of our smaller scale skirmishes the pat months into the first full fledged MESBG battle, with all horns and banners of the rules included. Enter mighty named heroes, magic and balanced points costs, as we sat down for scenario 2 of the rulebook.Noshi took along 419 points of her elves (the 400 in the title was just rounded out for easiness sake), and as such had a small band of only 9 models, but including two very strong heroes in the form of Gil-Galad AND Elrond.I on the other hand had a lot more models, taking along 15 Mordor orcs with a hotch potch of gear (wysiwyg), led by two maxed out stats "basic" Nazgul, and a Mordor troll, culminating in 414 points. Basically everything I have painted up for Mordor so far...I mentally prepared to
Ben is back with Lex-Corp to face my Brave and the Bold!
Jason has finished painting his Venator Maniple and comes to face my Warp Runners Corsairs in this mid-tier Matched Play game!
Its Spain - and of course it's 6 battle reports which are as tasty as a Korean barbecue with added Chorizo and Manchego !The occasion is a competition in Pamplona, the home of the running of the bulls which was of course an ideal place to try out an army which may in itself be a load of old bull.But even more pertinently they are the Koryo Koreans and their War Wagon Wagon Train, a novelty item often overlooked in ADLG. Will the cunning Koreans make the wagons work in these six trucking good battle reports?The wheels are certainly rolling - will they come off, or will they ride to victory in Spain?
Jimmy is back with his Astartes to face my Ultramarines in this Arena Match!
Liam had observed we haven't had a game for a long time so we arranged get together but what to play? Having tried Kill Team and Deathwatch Overkill we thought it should be 40k but as I had the chance bring my [mostly] Knights for convenience and their first march AND the fact Liam is the only one with a similar company of Knights it seemed like a more balanced match up. That said he has Renegade Knights which only have access to two stratagems I wanted something different, more narrative.There was an Echoes of War mission in Vigilus Defiant called Forlorn Charge. It was Knights and Freeblades versus Ork Stompas, Morkanauts and Gorkanauts. It compressed the Knights into a 2'x2' corner with the 'Orks' creating their 'scrap city' and deploying first. There were also benefits for running a Fortification network and some additional stratagems. I thought this might help Liam out but it transpires the Attacker gets all the coolest extra Strats but even so Liam deployed the terrain and chose his Fortress of Redempt
