Cool beans!

 

I take it the Void Claws are deep striking, can they use the pods to avoid scattering?

 

I hope you do have fun :) and use the pods as cover so the dreads do not get massacred ;)

Yeah they deep strike turn 1 and allow reserve re-rolls. They get to re-roll scatter to. But so far they have just died...!

Defo going to replace them with shield bros going forward!

Ah I thought the void claws came in after the drop pods and if within a certain distance of the pod they didnt scatter.

 

If thats the case drop the pod first thing turn 1 then void claws directly after so they do not scatter and still get bonus's for everything else.

 

I lose far more often than I win lol, so tactics are definitelynot my strong suit and there are getting to be too many rules to remeber... Look forward to the bat-reps though

 

Shield Bros are expensive, but I have heard lots of good things about them.

Not sure if you got any pics at Vanquish, I certainly didnt.

I was going to take loads and then I got so wrapped up in getting my butt kicked I forgot to take any. >_<

So, finally I have got round to chatting about vanquish 2015!

Firstly I wanna say how great this even is. The people, the organisation and the terrain are all above par and as a first tournament, exceptional.

I ended up placing 47th I think after being crushed by blood angles in game 1 and grey Knights game 3, crushing tyranids in game 2 and mechanicum game 5 with a draw in game 4 against a fellow wolf army.

Highlights for me definatley my sicaran destroying a forgeworld knight in my turn one against the ad mech, that thing with tank hunter is insane! Low points, my whole twc and Harald running off the board turn 1 against Dante and co!

I have a few snaps here http://imgur.com/a/tTEQk

Also, if any one wants more info on the vanguard and future events, the forum is here

In other news, moving forward to 2000pts, I have a tweaked list and some new models.....watch this space....!

If I could be so bold as to make a suggestion: I think you need to mix the snow effect you used on the Sicaran treads with some water effects for a more slushy, wet snow.  As is, you have a powder effect (which is nice, don't get me wrong) that looks like the tank has been idling in one spot for too long.   The sicaran is very much a predatory animal, always on the prowl.  If it's got that level of powder accumulation on the treads, it's because it got immobilized.

Yeah I appreciate what you are saying however I tried a slush approach to start with (if you check earlier pics) and It didn't turn out right so I stripped it back to this and it looks more realistic. Also the powder was just sprinkled on for the shot and isn't stuck onto the tank so there is actually less on it in the flesh.

If I was to do it again, I might do it differently but I have already had to go over the tracks once and will not be doing it again!

The standard of painting at Vanquish was awesome, some really great looking stuff (and your army is no exeption).

Unfortunatly, the first two armies I played against had units that were either completely unpainted or just based.

That was a bit dissapointing considering the time players like you and I spent getting our guys looking as good as we could.

Yeah that is a shame. Luckily everyone I played was painted so all the battles looked good. The armies nominated for the best painted where exceptional with the winners being outstanding
