Big Game 2017

New models ready for battle!
D-Company's annual Big Game has come and gone again...

This year was broken down into games against individuals and teams as opposed to one large slug fest. I have grown to like this format as it allowed me to play 4 games over the weekend against 6 different people.

My first game was 2500pts vs. Orks, then I played 3000pts. vs. AD Mech and Iron Hands (40K). Then a team game 2500pts. per player vs. Iron Hands (30K) and Death Wing. Finally, another team game at 2000pts. per player.

The Orks defend their tires in game 1.
Game 2 vs. Ad mech

Night Lords advance on the Iron Hands in game 3.

Curze waits for the cowards to exit the Mastodon.
I consumed too many beverages and forgot to take pictures of game 4. But I can assure you it was just as much fun as the other 3 games. I loved playing against a Mastodon, though I could not kill it. The Quad Mortars and Leviathan performed very well for me all weekend. I'm certain I will enjoy fielding both units in future games. That's it for now....

Command Squad and Praetor

Happy 2017,
First post of the new year! I've been busy getting the Night Lords ready for D-Company's Big Game 2017. I've played a couple games, won one and lost one. Santa was kind, giving me a Leviathan Dread for Christmas, that is soaking in a bowl of soap and water...

I've gotten some decent hobby work done. I present my Night Lords command squad. To the left here we have Praetor Baltar. He is mainly, the model that comes with the Betrayal at Calth box, though I added a Paragon Blade and Sevatar's extra head. It's too cool not to use somewhere.

I still struggle with faces. But, I continue to work on techniques. Anyone who has good advice, I'd love to hear it.

My command Squad!

4 of them total.
They are armed with 2 Combi-Plasma, one has 2 Lightning Claws, and the Standard Bearer has a Plasma Blaster and a Thunder Hammer. I decided to give them skulls for heads to make them standout among other Terminators in the army. I also purchased the Primus Medicae in Cataphractii I'd love to add to the group but I doubt I'll get it done by February. That said, it's nice to have an option in HQ now, besides Sevatar. The Command Squad can either deep strike or take a Land Raider. Which makes them pretty flexible tactically and that is always good. Well, that's it for now.
