Down to a Heldrake

Even though I missed last weekend due to family awesomeness, I did manage to get in a game on last Thursday versus my now only opponent, Shea. He once again brought out his Orks, this time with a Truk heavy list, with two Battle Wagons with Nobs. I brought back my CSM list, now completely devoted to the Black Legion, but sans Cultists, add Las Pred. I also moved the Chosen from mixed squads to pure weapon squads. I wasn't super happy with the list as a whole, but it did give me plenty of food for thought. It also turns out that I could use an opponent that lets me make more mistakes.

Headless Heldrakeman

What does every headless horde need? A headless Heldrake rider of course. That's right folks, I now have(most of) a rider for my Heldrake #1. I still have a lot of work I want to do on him before I even think paint, but I am happy with how the rider has come out so far. I'm still torn on the bat winged helm on a flying dragon, but we shall see. Maybe I will order the sets for my ground troops, then do a test fit before I order the set to finish the Heldrake. It also kinda stinks that I have to get 10 more head and shoulders to finish two Heldrakes. The flip side is that I won't likely drop these bad boys in public any where beyond Hobby Town, until I hit a Con, which will likely increase in size when we stop running them. As I mentioned earlier in the week, I already have 100 points to spend, another 100 to 250 could definitely use 8+ more heads.

Stuff to ponder.

Accidently Unbound

So, I manage to get in another game versus my new "regular opponent" Shea. This time it was his Orks versus my Night Lords. Bom bom bom. After some thought about how 7th has changed some things and the effect on my Night Lords force, I decided they could be fun and even functional this edition. It will take more testing, and I have to make some changes, but after this game, I am hopeful for a chaos come back.

SILENCE! I kill you.

As some of you may have noticed, or pry not, I have been fairly quiet as of late. I blame 7th edition 40K. No, actually I blame May. With everyone having other things to do, there was no late gaming, and I had to fight to get games, and I'm not much of a fighter. But I was able to break the drought the Saturday before last and get in a game of the new edition of 40K. My opponent, Shea. My army, Eldar with Dark Eldar allies. His army, Orks. Outcome, well, I guess you will have to read on.
