I always enjoy reading through your batreps and this one is no exception. Definitely a terrific way to motivate people to get their armies built, painted, and on the table! :tu:

I find it the primary motivation, but sadly that means the less "exciting" or second pick models can wait a little longer. It's all worth it when you have a fully painted army on the table top biggrin.png If my batreps can help motivate people that's more than I can ask, but just imagine what a good batrep could do tongue.png;)

I always enjoy your batreps, WF, because you take time to break down what's going on.  It's not necessarily about being fancy (though I do like the cinematic ones too) but more about showing a game in progress and adding just a sniff of narrative.

 

So after-action, would you say the Stormlance is better, worse, or roughly equal to the vanilla Demi-Co. in capability?  Do you think the mobility is worth the trade-off for losing ObjSec?  I'm asking this specifically from an IH Chapter Tactics perspective, mind you.  :)

But then again we are Iron Hands, we will use a hammer as a scalpel.

I need to get a bit better breaking turn events down, or at least remembering all the actions - like most things there's always room for improvement smile.png

 

I'm big into mobility as it supports pretty much all winning moves - if you're in the right place that's half the battle generally. I've also found ObSec to be all but irrelevant in games so it's not much of a contest for me. I still plan on running the Demi-Company for more experience there, but I'm not expecting it to compete.

 

As IH we usually want to be shooting more than anything as with most C:SM forces, though we can muster some heavy hitters if you're willing to pay the points. The FoM's PotMS is huge for letting you move further and shoot effectively, add the post-shooting scoot and you can gribble up the table quickly or dart back into cover. Also gives you extra move to fall back and avoid assault units. I think it's hard to underestimate how useful that is as you reposition quickly and make it very difficult for your opponent to avoid and/or catch you!

 

It's unfortunate Dreads can't be part of it, it'd be damn near perfect then! tongue.png I want to get more Tacs/Marines on the table and these sort of things give them vital buffs so its something I plan on working with more smile.png Though I do have that list that's all tanks aside from a Techmarine I've wanted to try... laugh.png

 

I still feel quite new to the whole detachments thing so there is much more to learn, got my eye on some 1st Company stuff too once I get the Cataphractii finished smile.png

There is a sweet spot for batreps I think, I want details and pictures but I don't want it too heavy. Video batreps I'm not interested in, too much time to view and walls of text are also too much time to read :P While a picture is a thousand words I don't want too many pictures either, as those thousands of words build up!

 

However, back to peer pressure and that dead horse of mine - when are we seeing the Cataphractii finished? ;)

Ah, soontm! I guess I should be quiet as I still have quite a bit to do on my Ioria vow. I shall be back to pester once my vow is done and I have the moral high ground, or you finish your vow if that's before ;)

 

Cataphractii!

I'll be working on my Priest this weekend, so he may be done sooner than you'd think ;)

 

The Cataphractii aren't far from my mind, I've been musing on biting the bullet and going full magnets on them - or my preferred build should that not work.
