|We have come for you.|
I feel if don't put the dice and brushes down it could cause me to burn out and I never want that to happen. So March was largely a non-40K/30K month.
That said, I went to my first ever Adepticon. I wanted to pick up a Night Lords shirt from Forgeworld (an item you can only get at events). I also ordered the newest red book for 30K and some MK4 Night Lord shoulder pads. So, looking forward to that coming from across the pond.
I didn't play in any tournaments but looked around at the armies people brought. Ugh... too many Eldar and Tau! As a long time Eldar player it saddens me to see so many Jetbikes and Wraithknights. I was happy to see, as I observed the 30K players, no Night Lord armies. I think I'll have to change that next year...

Iron Warriors beat me again, but I have some new ideas on how to deal with him in our next game. The Iron Warriors had two blocks of 20 marine squads backed up by Apothecaries. I need some better ways to deal with those. Not going to post those ideas yet (he may read my blog) but I'll share when I play him again.
This was a game of firsts. I took my first list not using the Terror Assault rite of war. I wanted to try out something different so I used Pride of the Legion. For you non-30K types this rite allows Veteran Tac Squads and Terminators as troops. The Night Lords and Nurgle allies won in a close game. My Sicaran Venator had it's best game yet (I've used it 5 times so far).
The Sicaran was mostly responsible for destroying the Knight you see in the picture. Hehe.. it was his first time using it in a game. New model syndrome! A squad of Grey Knight terminators also fell to the Venator and a couple hull points off the second Knight. Then it used it's fast-tank status to get line breaker at the end of the game.
Pride of the Legion came into play as my 6 man Atramentar was deadly, killing several Crimson Fists on it's way to contesting their 3 point objective! A move that was largely responsible for Chaos winning the game. I gave both my Vet squads the Sniper rule (seems the most popular choice among players) and they were very effective until a Knight's battle cannon hit them...
|Night Lords on the move.|
I can't seem to get Sevatar's psychic power to ever go off, is he too reluctant?? In 5 games now he has gotten his power one time. Just once.
I will play more games outside of the Terror Assault Rite of War, Pride of the Legion seems very effective. And while I don't own any yet, more then one heavy support appeals to me.
Battle Cannons hurt.
