ToMG - The 3rd Hand In

Today was ToMG hand in 3. My added units were 10 scouts with a land speeder storm and some Honour Guard with a Drop Pod. I hate painting scouts :(

Here are James Allen's Grey Knights. So far these guys and mine are probably nemesis's with each other.

Matt Potter's Dark Angels next. I need to get a game against these soon, don't think I've actually played against him before.

Craig's Necrons now and they're coming along nicely. Definitely stand out from the norm of Necron armies.

That's it from the entries so far. There should be more coming up in a few days and I can't wait to see certain peoples armies now we're further into this.

Something big is coming...

There will be a Centerpiece Conversion section for Tale of Many Gamers this year and I fully intend to outdo not only myself but everyone else in the competition too by creating my most ambitious model to date. Szeras, Commissar Lord Vader, Marbo Fett and even the All Terrain Armoured Russ have nothing on this.

You have been warned.

Champion of Iron

This is my almost done chapter champion. All that needs doing is the base and some BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD splattered over him for added "you're screwed when i get to you!"

Honour and Glory

So today I built up a new unit. I've proxied it before building them and people already don't like them :)

More Fantasy

This is how our latest Fantasy game started. It ended with a few lizards and rats scrapping in the middle and some confused elves turning into rats :P

1500 Points, 2 More Games (well 1.5)

2 more games, 2 more wins. Although I do admit game 2 needs replaying so it only counts as half until next week when we have a re-match.

More Games, More Points

Today I saw the field of battle against James, who previously beat me with his Tau, and Dave whose Daemons once again took my Iron Hands down a peg.

The Inquisition

Before I start I just want to make sure you guys know that I have not read a copy of this myself. I'm going off of what I've been told and what I've read online.

No Pics :(

The Fantasy game went pretty well. It was Skaven, Orcs and Dark Elves VS Wood Elves, Lizard Men and High Elves. I'm sorry there are no pics but I got a bit distracted :)

My list was:

Plague Priest
- Plague Furnace

50 Clan Rats
- Full Command
- Spears and Shields

40 Skaven Slaves

20 Plague Monks
- Full Command

Hellpit Abomination

It was pretty much me VS Wood Elves on one end, Orcs VS Lizards in the middle and the rest of the Elves fighting at the other end with a bit of crossing over. Hellpits are good against birds, struggle to kill trees and slaves don't do a lot at all but 40 for 80 points can't be argued with.

I managed to take the Wood Elves down to a single tree that the Hellpit couldn't manage to kill (should have paid for warpstone spikes). Orcs got crushed in the middle and the Dark Elves took out the High Elves on the other end. Win for the Bad Guys!

If I could do it differently I'd take a Grey Seer instead of the Plague Priest and Warpstone Spikes on the Hellpit. Maybe trade out the slaves and Monks for Stormvermin. Dreaded 13th would have come in pretty handy that game.

I've got another game next week at the same points but 2v2 instead of 3v3 so i'll make a different list and see how it goes.

Not many people know this but I have a small Fantasy army. These don't come out very often though and most of the models are unpainted. As you may have guessed from the picture I'm a Skaven player.

Another Loss

Today my Iron Hands suffered a second loss. This time against some Daemons of Slaanesh. Can't really get more humiliating for Iron Hands can it?

There were 2 fairly large unit of Daemonettes, a Herald and a Keep of Secrets. Herald and 1 unit decided to outflank while the rest started on the table. One thing I learnt was that Daemonettes are really, REALLY fast. 

In the end it came down to the above picture, which was taken right after the Daemonettes charged me. It took them a while and cost them a marine but the Iron Hands killed all of the Daemon scum bar 1 stubborn crab-ostrich-lady-thing whose survival ensured the Keeper of Secrets got into the combat and started munching on my poor marines.

From what I can tell is my army can't deal with numbers backed up by something big. In this case Daemons and a Keeper, in the previous case Firewarriors and a Riptide. Maybe next time I'll start the marines on the ground and use the pods as cover/road blocks to try and divert them into bottlenecks for the thunderfire.

Techmarine Almost Done

Here is my Techmarine conversion. There are Forge World bits, tactical squad bits and thanks to The Watcher hopefully a Dark Angels hooded helmet too.

The colours were difficult to decide. Iron Hands are black, Techies are red and Chaplains are also black. Iron Fathers are a mix of all of these roles. I have decided on red torso and backpack with the rest of the armour black to show he's a bit of everything and mix things up a bit.

More pics when he's done.

Another Couple of Games Done

Bit backwards for my IH, but cool never the less.
Today I've had another couple of 600 point games, one against some Imperial Fists and another against Grey Knights.

Iron Hands First Loss

So today my Iron Hands suffered their first loss against James Allen's tournament Tau list. Some poor rolling didn't help but neither did some of the tactical choices I made.
