Yea not a big surprise lmao. Outnumbering plus sisters for the counter on his Tsons, plus the jetbikes would make for a very hard game to lose tongue.png

 

Heh... Yeah... My opponent is a top chap though, he's not competetive at all (for example his main army is a beautifully converted Ork force and for psychic powers he rolled on Telepeathy because he was just working through the disciplines!) and was just like "Welll.... It's a thematic loss!"

 

I blame you  and Skimask  for me building talons , thanks for  the interesting write up. 

 

GOOOOOD. GOOOOOOOOOOD. LET THE EMPEROR FLOW THROUGH YOUUUU!

 

No problem. We move to 2k for June and July, so I think I'll get my Tribune built and a few more Banana boys.

 

In an ideal world 2K would be what I have + Tribune, transport, shooty tank and a Sisters Transport or something.

 

Though I'm at WHF tomorrow with the express intent of getting a Telemon Heavy Dreadnought.

Well I'm actually going to have my first game today with a full talon list, 2500pts. It's not fully painted much to my shame, but it should be done...relatively soon. I'll let you guys know how the game goes!

Been a month huh? Damn...!

So I went to Warhammer fest and made some ill-advised resin purchases including:

  • Caladius Grav-Tank Annihilator
  • Coronus Grav-Carrier
  • Telemon Heavy Dreadnought....!!!

Sadly been a bit busy to even take them out of the boxes yet, but I'm vowing to get them done by the end of July to at least a built and gold/ wash state so I can use them in the escalation league for the 2nd 2K game.

But I did manage to get a little more colour on my bikes with a wash, leadbelcher and auric on the dudes:

Got the Gold done (bar extreme Stromhost Silver highlight) on the bikes and riders. Not doing the lances in the interest of time but will probably just tac the arms on for....

THRONE OF SKULLS IN AUGUST!

 

Going to do the panels in Red or Black... Maybe one red, one black and one with one of each? Unsure yet...

 

Image is a bit grainy because it was actually taken in low light with the flash, as it made the showed the reflective properties of the gold off a bit more!

So, with the Aquisitor on pre-order today I am super happy as it means I'll be able to field it for Throne of Skulls!

 

Just worked up my 2k list and it's looking like:

  • Jenetia Krole
  • 3 Guardian Spearmen
  • 5 Bolter Sisters - Charnable Sabre
  • 7 Sword Sisters - Neuo Lash - Kharon Transport with Ceramite & Extra armour
  • 4 Hetaeron Guard - 2 Shield & Sword, 1 Shield & Fist, 1 Vexilla & Power Axe - Coronus Transport with Ceramite & Extra armour
  • 3 Jetbikes with Corvae Las Pulsars
  • Caladius Annihilator - Heavy Blaze Cannon
  • Telemon Heavy Dreadnought - Storm Cannon

Means I need to build and paint the following to table top standard (gold/ wash/ red):

  • Coronus
  • Caladius
  • Telemon
  • Kharon
  • Few finishing touches on Krole
  • Vexilla & Axe Hetaron

.....Lots to do in just under a month in which I am otherwise quite busy!

*laughs nervously* Yeah... Sure... It's definitely not only his arms...

 

Nah I wanted him to be fairly static, just bracing to let off a spray of plasma while the storm cannon pew pew's from his other arm.

 

My Leviathan when I eventually do that will make up for it :P

Galvorbak with a 2++.... That's all I'll say.

....But the Chaos God's are fickle masters! His little book of names failed 3 times in a row so Krole managed to absolutely clean up some Gal Vorbak before eventually being sliced up by a Blade Slave. At one point she made 4 4++ at once then tore apart 3 of the daemons with one mighty swing.

The Telemon is a lot of dakka. So much dakka.

Eventual Tabling of the forces of Chaos after the gods abandoned him.

Thanks man!

In the end I placed 35th out of over 70. And that is with my first game being a bit robbed from me.

Had an overall really great time and will do a full write-up when I'm not on a train!

SO here we are, my review and write up of my first Heresy Event... The result is quite obviously that I had a blast and met some great guys and played some "interesting" games to say the least! 

 

So a few little Pros and Cons:

 

PROS:

  • Lots of players - 70+ in total!
  • Huge Army Diversity - every possible force from the Heresy on display except for maybe blackshields, but I might have just not seen them!
  • Warhammer World - Bugmans, Beer, Forgeworld store & the ever so slightest whiff of body odor. Drink it in! Always fun to visit.
  • "Free" Lunch - I didn't realise these and had to cancel my food order on day one... Ooops!
  • Great atmosphere - 99% of people were friendly and total heresy heads. All walks of life too which is awesome, one of the best things about the hobby is it's inclusiveness when done right.

CONS:

  • Price - £70 for 5 games and some staff canteen lunch is still a bit much, really. £15ish per game? Off-putting for sure.
  • Organisation - while everything worked, the event wasn't really run much. They just said which mission to play and did the pairings randomly. The event only extra objective was also pretty bland and only really an excuse for an admittedly awesome painting/ modelling comp. Basically, it could have been done anywhere but anyone for "free".
  • Factionless - not huge, but it would have been nice to at least ensure I was fighting traitors. Though I'm not fussed because it meant game 5 was EPIC.
  • No narrative - while certainly not billed as a narrative event, the name "Assault on Angelus Minor" meant nothing and you weren't fighting for anything but VP. Could have certainly done with at least a briefing and a few extra rules.

Y'all know my 2K list from before and it was pretty much just that!

 

Here is a nice video of my force taken just before game one:

 

 

I can't really remember all the missions but will describe as I go.

 

GAME ONE: VS IMPERIAL KNIGHTS (....censored.gif  really? Yes... Really...) facepalm.png

 

First match was against a guy called Ben and his stunningly beautiful Knights. Really awesomely painted and a joy to look at on the table. The bases even basically matched it! A nice mix of Cerastus and Plastics.

 

To be honest, I wasn't that mad I was against Knights for the first match. This is the HERESY and anything goes. The more savage the better eh?

 

To summarise, here is the match in four pictures:

 

l7xLIJQ.jpg

M0M14c6.jpg

gV0S5zV.jpg

4ypyL1M.jpg

 

Oh... Oh dear...

 

Suffice to say it did not end well... I believe the final result was 2 to 28VP, because I held 2 Objectives at the start of my turn 1 sleepnew.png it was Dominion or something, basically hold points to score as the game goes on.

 

I did manage to get 3 Knights down to 1 or 2 HP each, but alas it was not enough. The Telemon almost went on a horiffic rampage through them but alas some poor rolling made it not so.

 

Ben was however a top chap and I actually had a LOT of fun getting stomped (literally - he murdered my Hetaeron and Event model with one) into the dirt. He bought me a pint around the time of the second picture to make up for the current situation too thumbsup.gif 11am drinking kids!

 

GAME TWO: VS IMPERIAL KNIGHT AGAI- No. No... NO, screw that noise... THE DEATH GUARD

 

Yeah so in the draw for game two I was missing an opponent. The GW employee walked over with the spare army... Five Knights. I refused, not paying £15 twice for that! Luckily the table next to us hadn't started so graciously swapped, so I was instead up against Dave's absolutely incredible Death Guard (his Preator won best painted Hero at the event!)

 

Mission was getting units into your own/ enemies DZ and also scoring No Mans Land. A few secondary objectives too.

 

Deployment + a couple early moves:

 

uDWtWuN.jpg

 

Yes it was a Spartan full of Cataphractii, Preator, Chaplain, Mortug and a Thyphon to start. Two Tacs in Rhinos in reserve otherwise.

 

After a few turns I manage to whittle the Thyphon down with minimal casualties and the Spartan disgorges into my Spear Custodes and Telemon. After much deliberating he opts to go for the Telemon with Combi-Melta but Multi assault the two targets - cheeky! Luckily the Telemon weathers the storm (lots of whiffed chainfists thank god) and straight up punches out a few terminators into the next world. A trend that continues on into the battle.

 

Meanwhile the Rhinos arrive one after the other in my rear. (The Kharon is actually dead at this point with Krole and her Sisters stuck between the two!)

 

The Spear Custodes fall but the Hetaerons soon replacement, masterfully crushing the remaining DG with help from the Telemon. Sisters make it through the bolter fire for Krole to pretty much decapitate an entire Tac squad alone as they foolishly charge her.

 

UMfqGdy.jpg

guARAZe.jpg

 

But the Telemon finally exits melee to be felled by a point blank lascannon... The Hetaeron mourn their fallen comrade while one tries (and fails) to punch open the Spartan lots.

 

ZzW3aAH.jpg

 

Krole then stands triumphant in her wiping of a second Tactical squad with help from a lone Golden Rider (who definitely didn't flee previously...)

 

gO33113.jpg

 

Even though Dave only had a Spartan and his event mini left - we actually Drew on VP as TANKS were socring and Custodes vehicles are not Tanks so couldn't deny him the mid field... 5VP all!

 

A solid, tactical game and a joy to play with a big scrap in the middle.

 

Enough writing for now though... I'll write up games 3-5 in due course ohmy.png

Will write it up when I get a moment this weekend! Particularly busy work week leaves you less than enthused to write an essay sadly :(

Be interested to see what others said! I can see how some might think it was poor though.

Ohhhh when indeed! All depends on when I get bored of Custodes or if the BA/ DA dissapoint me ;)
