1500 pts IG mirror-match

Was challenged to an IG vs IG match by the guy who runs this blog... I'd already lost to him with my Ultramarines so it was time to bring a good list. I brought what I at the time thought was the best guard list I could run at 1500 pts considering the models I own... I have since slightly revised my opinions but I'm slightly less disappointed in my guard than when I posted this...

Aegis with Quad Gun

There were a lot of people at the shop so there wasn't much terrain left available so we made do. Mission was Relic with Dawn of War deployment. I forgot to take my aegis with me, and that's why there's a bunch of random barricades and dice and an objective marker instead. I managed to seize the iniative and off we went. Night was on.

Kill team tournament report

From ages (aka 2-3 weeks) ago... My list:

Update: Dark Eldar bases, venoms and IG advisors update

Started paintwork on my bases and they are actually coming out pretty good. The one on the right is finished, and I was actually worried that it was too colourful, but when I put a venom on it I think it actually looks very nice! Apologies for the first blurry pic...


Also found a nice gold colour (finally), really didn't like the GW Metallics. Thanks to tale of painters (Stole it from their tutorial) it's vgc brassy brass if anyone's interested...


Also finished my two advisors... Just need to paint the bases at a later stage, but pretty good for a quick job I think. Tried to practice some blending on the astropath, but gave up after the first two layers/settled back into an undiluted line highlight.


Also I somehow managed to win the IDIC giveaway! Just can't decide what I want, but I have my eyes set on what looks like a trio of earthshaker battery stand-ins!

1850 pts Tau vs Daemons

Post from ages ago... Very quick because I barely remember anything... Played a game against Paul before I went away. Mission was Emperor's Will with dawn of war deployment. Happened a while ago so apologies for missed details (really need to stop doing this as my reports are becoming very vague :/ )

Basically was trying to put together a decent tau list without farsight and try out marker drones and crisis suits.

Tau:
