Thats a nich, right red on the Techmarine! He looks great! As I am wont to say repeatedly: I love an old model updated with a modern paint scheme :D

 

One think I'll say about vindies and D6 shots is that it is very random, so don't rely on a high roll. They're nice when it happens but it's still possible to roll a princely 1 :P I expect they'll fair similarly to Exorcists - they do ok, but every now and then bust out 6 shots and absolutely annihilate something!

Time for some batreps! Unfortunately nothing too special but here we go with number 1:

 

Legio vs World Eaters @ 1000pts

Legio

Hidden Content

 

World Eaters

Hidden Content

 

As it was the first 8th game for my opponent it was an introductory game where much time was spent discussing the phases and rules etc, as well as going through possible actions and the like. So much so that my opponent's list was a bit squiffy as the concept of having to buy every upgrade was a new one! tongue.png A couple of removals and it roughly worked out probably but as mentioned the aim was to learn the game.

 

Deployment

Not much to report here! The WE deploy in their transports and the Legio gathers to oppose them. There's not much to work with, but given the fight lining up not likely to be an issue...

 

The Game

The WE grab first turn and scoot up popping smoke. In return the Legio advances and unleashes everything they have - AT fire manages to squeak the last wound off the Rhino letting AP fire access the squishy contents. It's a hard turn as saves are failed and the Possessed get mauled.

 

gallery_30308_10077_90905.jpg

 

They do look great though, as does the whole army! A lot of conversion work and attention paid biggrin.png

 

gallery_30308_10077_9672.jpg

 

Next turn the WE advance closer and things start to get interesting. The Land Raider is very tough and I struggle to damage it, letting the contents out for some mischief. Fortunately for me this doesn't involve any combat yet! My own response doesn't achieve much and I can only manage a single charge - getting a Dreadnought in against the Land Raider to at least stop it from shooting.

 

On the right the Termies arrived but also failed their charge, letting my right flank move up to attack. This doesn't go great but I can reduce them down a bit.

 

gallery_30308_10077_10853.jpg

 

The Berzerkers take some hits but get into combat with the Contemptor. On the right the Scouts are taken out and the Dread badly damaged but with some Tactical support I don't have too much to worry about.

 

gallery_30308_10077_53964.jpg

 

While I lose the Contemptor to the fearsome combat of the Berzerkers and Khârn (though he chops down three of his comrades) the Dread finishes off the Land Raider. My Chapter Master duels Khârn to inflict some damage but the remains of the World Eaters are counter charged and brought low to bring victory!

 

It was a good game and really helped my opponent dust off the cobwebs, and just as well for such a great army should not be wasted on a shelf! It was also great to give the Legio their first battle at WHW, never did I imagine it would happen when I started them all those years ago. I enjoyed playing around with the new supplement finally but I'm still not in the habit of using the Stratagems, I'm too used to having nothing to use still. I'm sure this will change when I get some more games in smile.png

 

I will aim to get the following batreps up this week :tu:

Another batrep, again against traitors but no training game so the Legio will show no quarter!

 

Legio vs Alpha Legion @ 1000pts

Legio

List as above

 

Alpha Legion

Hidden Content

 

Alpha Legion are a pesky lot, hiding with their -1 to hit... for adding problems the mission had an inbuilt -1 to hit over 18" as well. Bad times sad.png Fortunately neither my list nor my opponent's were particularly geared for long ranged slug fests so at least it wouldn't be too painful.

 

Deployment

I position my forces ready to move up, with rear elements holding to act as reserves and keep the Termies from deep striking behind my lines. My opponent sets up to close the distance - I'll need to do my best to soften then up before they do arrive so my Chapter Master positions himself to grant the most aid he can before the advance. The Helbrute with TLLC and ML hiding in the Bastion will be a particular pain so he'll be the first target...

 

gallery_30308_10077_3798.jpg

 

Early Game

Fortunately for me my opponent's fire power fails to achieve much, but then neither does mine... both sides advancing their vanguard elements is the main play. The game is clearly going to be a clash in the centre! I'm confident that my Dreads can do some heavy lifting if they can close, but the AL have plenty of tricks up their sleeve.

 

gallery_30308_10077_7483.jpg

 

The -2 to hit in most cases is a real pain, but I can advance close enough to inflict some damage on the ensconced Helbrute but only a little. Things fair a bit better as I can clear out the advancing CSM squad thanks to some poor saving rolls - a good start, but the enemy are advancing and the Termies are yet to arrive... The Maelstrom draws are kind of bad so neither side are getting much luck on Victory Points so far so things hang in the balance.

 

gallery_30308_10077_29749.jpg

 

Mid Game

Now both sides are closing things start to ramp up. My main elements advancing around the building start taking hits but endure with Techmarine support. Equally so does the encamped Helbrute that refuses to die! Things don't fare quite so well for the AL Marines who with only small squad sizes can't hope to survive the attention thrown their way.

 

The Termies arrive and struggle to achieve much when they do, but help take out a Dread as the nearby Tactical squad piles in to help.

 

gallery_30308_10077_45107.jpg

 

Late Game

With my vanguard very much in ascendancy the game shifts in my favour, especially as the Termies struggle with the Tacs enabling the Venerable to freem his counterpart and charge to finish the job. The other Helbrute finally dies after holding on despite all the odds! With my Chapter Master and the Scouts to assist the Contemptor is lost but the other Dread endures to squish both enemy characters.

 

With the Cultists pushed back badly by the advancing Tactical squad fresh from their victory, and more Alpha Legion units being shot down the game is over with a convincing victory to the Emperor's finest!

 

 

It's always a pleasure to play against such a fine army and opponent, but the difference in codex age made an increasing difference as the game went on. It was fortunate my list was built to close as that 18" accuracy reduction was a real hindrance otherwise, were it not for the Chapter Master's bonuses the game would have been quite different so it was annoying enough..!

 

The Tacticals did good service, chattering bolters with AP-1 are always nice to see (and I seem to roll quite well with bolters normally) and work well with Dreads smile.png Shock Assault makes them quite nasty on the charge, further consolidating my preference for gun/cc builds so it's great to see them do some serious damage. The problem is often surviving to get there, the 5++ on the Contemptor really helped in this regard especially as he gets a lot of attention.

 

Another two batreps still to come thumbsup.gif

Hopefully one tonight at least, before I forget too much - a couple of weeks isn't that long but they've been a very busy two weeks. I will probably be busy enough this week but afterwards I'll be returning to the Cataphracti to finish them :)

 

Still not decided on how I'd like to build them. I think I might stick with power fists, or perhaps a mix with lightning claws? Decisions, decisions...

Another catch up batrep:

 

Legio vs Vanquishers @ 1000pts

Legio

List as above

 

Vanquishers (Crimson Fists)

Hidden Content

 

This was my second introduction to 8th, so we didn't waste time monkeying around and got straight to it - best way to learn is by doing! As before, I will be explaining and advising throughout the game, but not pulling my punches - another good way to learn is by seeing msn-wink.gif It was a little while ago too so details aren't going to be that present...

 

Deployment

Nothing exciting here. Some Combat Squads are used, otherwise I build a reliable core to push up the centre where most objectives gravitated and oppose my opponent's set up.

 

The Game

The Stormtalon zooms in to cause some mischief, but my rolling is decent and only a little damage is done. Otherwise my opponent advances a bit to cover ground, but it's not a great start.

 

gallery_30308_10077_5690.jpg

 

I know that the Stormtalon is going to be trouble so I devote my efforts to removing it - unfortunately that's what it requires! I have little else to do so can only plink off a few opposing Marines. First Blood is handy, and I start my claim on Tactical Objectives also.

 

gallery_30308_10077_29595.jpg

 

My opponent starts to bring his weapons to bear and takes out the Contemptor. Shooting is muted for the most part however due to extremes of luck which is good for me as it gives me an opportunity to press an advantage.

 

gallery_30308_10077_51566.jpg

 

This is of course what I do! Aided with some luck of my own my shooting tears through my opponent (6 wounds, 6 dead Sternguard...). With my forces advancing my opponent is getting pressed in, not to mention I'm building a decent lead in Victory Points. The loss of Pedro in particular hurts; I'm well set to victory unless my opponent's Lamenter luck reverses itself!

 

gallery_30308_10077_58658.jpg

 

The fightback is well fought, the Tactical Doctrine paying off nicely but I'm still in the lead with VPs with the game in my favour so it's going to take more than that! My squads hold on thanks to my Chapter Master and the Techmarine keeps Dreads in the fight to help me stay on top.

 

gallery_30308_10077_59434.jpg

 

This is where my opponent's efforts finally give way, and faced with the methodical advance of the Legio losses are severe. A single squad holds out despite all the odds! Hold out they do, as they prove very stubborn - the dice gods feeling apologetic perhaps!

 

gallery_30308_10077_67840.jpg

 

It can't last of course, and the Legio emerge triumphant! It was a good game and we got to explore most parts of the game which made for an excellent introduction and tutorial to 8th smile.png My opponent's luck was pretty poor though, he definitely needs new dice that are less fancy looking but better rolling tongue.png

 

We followed up with another game to put into practice the introduction game, at 1500 to get a few more toys in which I will batrep soon to complete the last thumbsup.gif

Just in case anyone thought this was only a batrep topic, back to the Cataphractii once more:

 

gallery_30308_10604_36139.jpg

 

Legs just need the grass on the bases to be complete, I aim to assemble some Stormies next ready for a decent priming run then it'll probably be straight to painting the upper halves here as they'd be the closest project to completion smile.png I've got an idea for what the next Legio project will be, but I'll cross that bridge once I get to it msn-wink.gif

With some luck I might be able to finish them tomorrow, but either way they'll be done soon enough :) I concocted an army list that requires some more painting and even some repainting, I might use it as a hit list to further my progress for future project ideas.

I didn't get to finish them today, but even without the time that wouldn't have happened anyway. Turns out my black wash is very low, and I don't trust it when it's on the last bits...

 

gallery_30308_10604_37116.jpg

 

Good progress still, and I'll be hitting GW tomorrow all going to plan anyway so work can resume soon enough. Once the wash is complete there's not much left to do, mostly the helmets smile.png

Fortunately now the eye pieces and wash is done that's the main work, so just the red to finish and a green highlight and they'll be done with a quick bit of static grass smile.png

Luckily there's a lot less edges to highlight on the upper halves :P They're nice models so it's good to finally have them done, maybe get them in my next list :) While I'm on the task of completing unfinished work it might be time to return to some of the models still awaiting their repaint...

The Cataphractii Terminators are well-painted and detailed.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

That is a nice solid green as always. The red being a deep and rich colour really pops with the gold :tu: What's next?

I think it's time I repainted my Typhoon Land Speeders, it won't take too long so will be a good little project and a quick way to add some more choice. The mobility will be nice too, and as Iron Hands they function much better as mobile gun platforms (at least on turn 1) :)

Land speeders will be something different! I repainted mine a while back, was a nice little job :) Sadly they're still not great on the table, I'm not so sure them being IH will make a huge difference.
