I'm keeping the arms and heads off until I've had a few practise games to make sure I'm choosing the correct comination of units, particularly with the characters. Looking forward to my first game on Friday 11th April.

Following Friday nights game I decided a Storm Eagle would be a solid acquisition for my heresy force.
I had a dilemma, however. Not only did i already own a Storm Raven kit (which has seen play few enough times to be able to count on one hand, including Fridays proxying!) but having looked up the construction process for the Storm Eagle I wasn't over-fussed about dropping much cash on acquiring one only to have an utter ballache putting it together.
There was only one real solution...

My Emperors Children vs Iron warriors and some Legio Cybernetica.
Which meant I got to give Fulgrim his first run out.
I'll dump the photos after the jump...

So a quick post today as I have been very busy catching up with real life this weekend and (almost) forgot it was Monday!
How many games is too many? I started typing this out as an open letter about Descent but I've decided to instead tackle the real issue behind by frustration witj Journeys into the Dark.
We as gamers are collectors as much as players so how can we judge whrn we have hit the sweet spot with our collections and when we have gone too far?
I say this because when I find it hard to get out some quality games I start to wonder if I have too many? When was the last time we played Battlestar? What games do you have that you really want yo play more of but seem to keep leaving in the cupboard?
Or are we just too spread out/busy to be able play regularly and therefore knock out a variety of games?

Rich is still playing, it's looking tense!
Ps the first photo is Will's vet plasma gunner ambyshung my leader only to shoit himself in the face even after re-rolling his initial one to hit!
Not me! I tool my 5 Destroyers and was paired with a really nice Italian chap called Francesco who also had Necrons, except his were 5 warriors, 5 Immortals and a Wraith. As it turns out being abke to roll 6+ go to ground saves and 5+ reanimation is big game in kill team and I lost 5-0.
Rich has taken 8 Dark Eldar jetbikes and was paired against the Codex Eldar mirror. He won 5-0 as being abke to cut your opponents head off whilst you turbo boost away tends to wear an opponent down.
Will's game was close against a white scar bike list. I'll let him tell rhe story of that one.
Currentky sitting out round two on a bye (so an auto win with an average points of all the other winning players so can't end the event on zero!)
Here are some images of the current round two games.

Its Thursday again already so here is my latest little discussion topic for the week, are Space Marine Legion armies unbalanced when used outside of the context of heresy only play?
This is something that came up a few times during the Devastation Doubles Weekender and it did make me stop and ponder the topic. I'm going to put forth a few f my own thoughts on the matter and would love to hear any of the thoughts on it that the rest of you have.

|So many counters...|
Not a full review but a quick musing. The first think I noticed was that the plastic is a lot harder than GW plastic and therefore makes removing the mould lines a lot harder. It also mens you can't use Plastic cement (a serious flaw for me as using super glue means that the joints are brittle, increasing the chances of the model breaking in future).
As far as the model design I really like the look of the models but I have a serious problem with the double-handed options.
|No option for two hand weapons but the shields and swords fit perfectly.|
|The guns fit together (just) with a little fiddling. Some gaps but it shouldn't take much filling.|
|This option is so badly designed that the arms do not fit the body, they are too wide...|
|...so wide I had to pin the whole thing together and this is how much of a gap that was still left!|
So hear's this Monday's Musing - How awkward does a model have to be to put together before you give up? Have we been spoiled by the quality of the recent GW products that we no expect everything to be super simple to put together?
