Working on some flash gits !

 

Found some nobz in the draw so can bring those into the squad also if I need more numbers!

 

My friends are taking this very seriously and I'm probably going to get whooped this weekend. :D

Have you played before? Are you using BattleScribe to build your list up? If not give it a look as it’s really useful.

Only played once in the shop last week. I used to play 40k.. 16+ years ago! Downloading battlescribe now, it looks great.

I’m moving to Singapore soon and would love a game - also used to play 40k but about 20 years ago, and interested in getting back into it. 
 

Also up for Blood Bowl, which I’ve just started playing on the Xbox - such a great game still!

 

Do you play online @And?

I have it on the xbone, and i played a few games but found people normally concede if they go behind so stopped bothering. I let my live gold sub lapse as I never use it anymore. 
 

@skittles

its a really good memory aide, I’ll print off the list then write what each specialists abilities are next to each entry so I don’t forget to use them. Stuff like that.

You can join our league if you like (plus anyone else reading this who fancies it). 
 

It’s small and very casual - me and a friend from school have a couple of teams and play maybe once a week. He can be a bit flaky though (due to having five kids!). There’s another friend who has only played a few games and seems to have given up since I killed a number of his players. Trying to persuade him to play again. 
 

Welcome to join us if you fancy a casual game now and then though?

Cheers. If I get another sub set up that would be cool. It’s also finding time to actually play for the hour or so it takes to get though a game!

Oooh let's do it. Have three of us so far from my psn clan. We are already addicted to painting and building...

Warcry scenery is as GW as it gets. I’ve just glued a skeleton to a spike.

Trying not to sully the Mini Thread with copious amounts of my WIP shots, so thought I'd do the same here ;) ...these have been an interesting one to do for all sorts of reasons, and I think I'm nearly there with them now.

 

Finishing straights, and then onto the doggie thing.

I did make a sprue based scenery thing, I also created a tabletopper so I could use my full realm of battle board thing.

 

My Death Guard need some reworking, I'm currently on the look out for some plague bearers and a couple of feculent gnarlmaws. I think I will get a deredeo dreadnought for some much needed long range shooting as I currently have nothing that can really damage units at range.

long-range is a problem for dg, there’s only really predators in the codex they are any good. I bought a few armigers and ran them as an allied chaos knight detachment. They were cheap on eBay (a lot cheaper than the FW dreads) and also just cool models.

Hmm... this is something i'm currently having a problem with, I got shot off the table last night from an Ad Mech army.

 

I ran my Chaos Knight Desecrator with 2 Warglaives and a battalion of Death Guard (1500pts total). Knights died before they could do anything useful and my Death Guard didn't have the punch to do anything either. I'd played the Ad Mech a couple of weeks before with something similar and won but he'd changed things up to deal with the Knights (changed army trait etc.)

 

His Castellan robots (or whatever) just obliterated anything they fire as he also spent command points on "Wrath of Mars" iirc which made them fire twice. Either way he just deleted units left and right and i'm feeling quite despondent if truth be told. The same thing happens when i play another guys Ultramarines with 2 Executioner Repulsors, who, by his own admission, finds them a little boring to play with. Fucking re-rolls at every stage, well nearly.

 

Spent £80 on the Desecrator and a shit load of time painting it but tbh it's fucking trash (in game).

 

ChaosKnights.jpg.a92bbe04c196c6e0077bdeae651c161d.jpg

 

I realised DG were quite low tier when i started playing but thought the gap may have been a bit closer tbh, I've always been into Nurgle and Plague Marines and i'm not really bothered by many other armies so it look like i'm stuck trying to find a way for these to work. I've got options but i feel if i want to be even slightly "competitive" or stand a chance i'll need to tow the internet line.

 

Here's hoping for some goodies in our Psychic Awakening book (when ever that lands).

If it’s any consolation your knights look awesome. Ultramarines are pricks.

DG do need some buffing, they dont really display much resilience considering the fluff.

Hi martingee, yeah I've heard the Desecrator isn't great, I was thinking of getting one mainly for the Chaos bits and combining with a standard knight kit to get something more reliable like the battle cannons fitted. Does the kit come with enough components to properly corrupt one or two other knights?

There's not a lot of customisation, what you see in the pictures is what you get with not a lot left on the sprues at the end (if any).

 

Obviously there's some stuff you don't have to put on, like I didn't put the banner on that's between the legs, but you won't be have enough to do another Knight imo.

 

You could use weapons from the Imperial Knight quite easily to make both Knights Despoilers but one wouldn't look quite as Chaotic as the other.

Cool thanks. In other news after being in rut since the summer (house move twice, change on personal circumstances) finally finished some models! Not my best work but they are just cannon fodder

Hah, I finished a unit of cultists off the other week. I literally deployed them, didn't get to go first and were subsequently wiped out before they'd even moved.

@martingee what was the table like when you were playing Admec?

On Wednesday we had deployment zones along the long edge of the table whitch had one side of buildings and ruins (although it was only 1/3rd and not blocking too much LOS). The other 2/3rds was low terrain with a big gap to cross which meant he parked his army and shot me to pieces. His main guns on his robots and Dunecrawlers were instantly in range and he had a couple of characters/elites(?) that provided rerolls.

 

Apart from my Desecrator I don't think any of my guns reached. He also got first turn so one of my warglaives disappeared real quick due to them mauling him badly in the previous game.

 

In that first game we had deployment zones along the short edge of the table with a fair bit of LOS blocking terrain. My Knight sat at the back on an objective whilst my Warglaives moved forward and wrecked his Dunecrawlers. In that game his robots were down one side and wasted any of my troops that tried to get near. He didn't have much that could touch my Knight and the one thing that got in range I killed.

 

I have another Knight to assemble which is an Imperial one and some bits to make it look Nurgley. Although it'll be a bit more points I think it'll do a bit better due to what I can arm it with. I've held off getting anything like a Deredeo or Leviathan mainly due to incoming rule changes and the price they are but might buy a Helbrute. And whilst the Death Guard Helbrute could do with a buff it does have access to some long range weapons.

Helbrutes don’t get disgustingly resilient so are surprisingly / disappointingly easy to kill. I never got mine to do anything good. But it did have a Fist and a melta so was more close combat oriented. Can you put 2 lascannons on one?

Yeah, one arm can be double laser and the other can be a missile launcher (Krak and frag, not blight iirc) so could be ok. But yeah the fact that they don't get disgusting resilience, despite been obviously fleshy on the model, was why I hadn't bothered getting one. I think it's approximately £34 on GW online.

 

It's a shame the codex has so much in it, probably like a lot if other codex, that never get used. I play at an independent retailers shop and they are good set of people. The general feeling I get, is people are a lot like me, they're informed by the competitive scene but aren't out and out competitive. The "rule if cool" is the standard but it doesn't help when you're cool model continuely gets blasted to death round one :p

Yeah it’s off putting. when I was playing the consensus was If you actually want to win you basically need a core of 3 plagueburst crawlers, a couple of demon princes, 3 units of cultists And a knight. That was basically it. 

Pretty much everything cool in the codex hinges on getting your 5” movement guys into close range. Which meant my mates ultramarines just rinsed them before they got anywhere near. 
 

My best game was on a small table and I ran as many plague sprayers as possible with mortarion and a DP So arch-contaminator gives loads of wound re-rolls for your auto hit weapons. 
there’s an elite with a plague sprayer thing that’s also really good as you roll for strength. If you roll a high enough number you can delete tanks quite easily. 
 

I don’t regret selling the army though. I think it’s one of the best looking from a mini perspective bit most of the pieces I had were really uncompetitive.

Yeah I've had some succes with my Foul Blightspawn. His weapon is assault so he can easily move up the board and get in range. He's a bit swingey, I deleted a Drukhari flyer (12 wounds) much to the constenation of the Drukhari player but if you don't screen him he gets targeted quite easily. And with the strength roll he can easily whiff although -3 AP and flat 3 damage on an auto hitting weapon is nothing to be sniffed at.

 

TBH all I want us an excuse to take more plague marines, they're over priced atm and their longest ranged weapons are 24".

 

The irony is the starter sets and conquest magazines contain Space Marines and Death Guard. You'd think they'd give some parity since there's quite a bit of Death Guard armies knocking about. How many people have stopped playing because their starter army, Death Guard, is getting their arsed kicked?
