They are done! The bit more work on the bases took longer than I thought. Re-doing the snow was time consuming. The Vallejo snow isn't as good as the GW one in appearance but is far cheaper so I'm gonna stick with it. The little GW pots don't last long at all.

The trick with the Vallejo pumice is to streak it across the whole base leaving smaller clumps, like a muddy thaw. Its also good to cake on tank treads, then go over with browns and washes for mud effects.

Thanks for the replies! Sadly I'm already committed to the bases now MegaVolt, but in future I will be putting less snow on I think that will make things far easier. Now onto the battle report! 1000pts vs the new Space Marines. There was a sword and board character, 2 Marine squads, Dreadnought, Whirlwind and Tactical Terminators in reserve.

 

Turn 1 deployment:

med_gallery_27469_16649_209961.jpg

Slightly undersized table so we ensured 24" between the armies and squeezed in deployment in the space that was left. Due to the large footprint of the Cultists I took up most of my deployment zone. To be honest I didn't know much about the new Marines apart from the 2 Wounds so I had no plan or anything. Besides this was a friendly game with new armies in a new edition for both me and my opponent. We lined up to basically kill each other, which as a grudge match between Loyalist and Heretic still works for a game tongue.png

 

Anyway, nothing to report really. Units moved up and firepower mostly achieved nothing.

 

Turn 2:

med_gallery_27469_16649_296914.jpg

Alas my poor Predator was killed already. Just enough wounds done to kill it off. Sad times! Hopefully he does better next game sweat.gif The Terminators have arrived and one of my Marine squads didn't survive the concentrated firepower directed at them. I'm already starting to see the large difference between 1W Heretic Marines and 2W Loyalist Marines.

 

Turn 3:

med_gallery_27469_16649_332234.jpg

The Cultists are only still alive as my dastardly foe has irrationally decided to totally ignore them and focus on my Astartes instead. Just rude, really. biggrin.png My other Marines are wiped out but my Dark Apostle has avenged them by taking out a Terminator... again the extra Wound makes a real difference in how hardy Marines are. I expect the Apostle will die next turn but at least I did some damage! The enemy Dreadnought has been dispatched and the Contemptor has been making his merry way across the battlefield and is now chewing on some Tactical Marines.

 

Turn 4:

med_gallery_27469_16649_787629.jpg

The Contemptor has finished the Marine squad off and is now taking on the Whirlwind, the Warsmith killed himself with an over charged Plasma Pistol shot... I risked it without a backup Command Point for a re-roll. Lesson learned msn-wink.gif  The Apostle did indeed die this turn, I didn't really use him well and I the one time I remembered his Prayers I failed the roll! With not much else to do the surviving Tactical Marines focus on the Cultists... it was a brutal fight - close combat weapon against Astartes Chainswords, Autoguns against Bolters, t-shirts against Power Armour... it was a not a glorious battle. For the Marines won of course and the Cultists died to a man. Which to be fair was kinda their job, but they were just late in doing it tongue.png

 

Turn 5:

med_gallery_27469_16649_25950.jpg

Just the Contemptor left with one dead Whirlwind and reducing the Marine squad to just the Sergeant - the game ended here. Unfortunately it was Turn 5 where we realised I was inadvertently cheating by healing my Contemptor with an Iron Warrior Command Point ability. The special rule for the Contemptor states that it may not gain wounds any other way from killing enemy models in melee. Oops! So the Contemptor should probably have died last turn.

 

Lots to learn with 9th Edition, never mind a new Chaos army! Still, we enjoyed our first foray into 9th and we all agreed that the extra Wounds for Marines was a huge deal. Hopefully Chaos get the same treatment soon!

 

One last cinematic photo taken at the end of the game - a defiant Sergeant starting down the traitor Contemptor. Death or Glory!

First games are always about learning, so good to get to grips with the army before the new codex so it'll be easier to adjust (hopefully soon) :tu: The extra wound makes a large difference and with good rules generally it makes the new Marines a solid army so I think you did quite well considering. The important thing is you got them on the table and got New Model Syndrome out of the way, they looked great so will only get better as you add more units :)

That Genesis Chapter gets around a bit! Seems like a fun game, here's to many more!

fantastic dedication to painting and nice looking army!

I haven't bothered looking at 9th until 2020 clears but I thought the 2W thing was faq'ed for all marines no? Otherwise it would be a night-day difference in power...

As the change to Wounds also requires a point adjustment to go with it any Marines outside of C:SM need to wait for their respective codex. It'll make for a big change when it arrives, but it feels like it may be a bit of a wait...

Cheers Syrakul! Yes I initially thought it was FAQ'd as well but I found out this was all in my imagination about a week before the game. To answer your question yes - it's night and day sweat.gif Looking forward to Chaos 2W Marines though when the new codex comes, it really does go a long way to making Marines feel tougher and thus more fluffy!

 

Terminators are great at 3W so maybe we'll see them make a triumphant return? Certainly makes me want to rush getting mine, however I made a commitment to finish what I've got first... yes.gif
