EPIC: Game Pics – 4k Titan Legions vs. 1000 Sons

.

.

Hi guys,

Back with some pictures of the game!

Some thoughts first:

The two mid-range firepower titans were obscene – massive amounts of long range firepower!

The combo of the Plasma Destructors and the Support Missile worked well – unload turn 1, shoot missile turn 2, then back ready to unload plasma again turn 3.

Thunderbolts are very useful in the AMTL.

The Titan Legion list still feels a little unfair for the opponent to me, especially to face unexpectedly.

The 1000 Sons move up into coruscating fire

Meanwhile, having deployed my two mid range titans on the left flank (damn low activation count), I now catch the Warlord in a blistering crossfire, blowing it to smithereens!

EPIC: 4k Titan Legions vs. 1000 Sons

.

Hi guys,

Back to EPIC for the first time in absolutely ages, I hope you all enjoyed the digression in Fantasy. I have a 4k game versus my friend Ben arranged for this afternoon and have decided to dust off my Titan Legion and take them out for a spin.

Given that the points were 4k, I had thought about trying out my Imperator for the first time, but with this being our first game of EPIC in a good while, I decided to try something a little different. As I know Ben tends towards fewer activations in his armies, I thought I would give a list without any Warhounds a try. Helping this along is my love for the style of the old Reaver chassis!

Both Reaver models are so much sexier than the Beetleback...

Both Reaver models are so much sexier than the Beetleback…

So, the list:

Reaver – Legate, Quake x 2, Carapace Landing Pad, Legate
Reaver – Laser Blaster x 2, Volcano Cannon
Reaver – Plasma Destructor x 2, Support Missile
Reaver – Vet Princeps, Power Saw, Plasma Cannon, Laser Burner
Reaver – Vet Princeps, TCCW, Plasma Cannon, Laser Burner
Recon
TBolts
Tbolts
4000

So that is eight activations which isn’t too bad considering the price of the Reavers, as well as a couple of air formations for defensive AA. The highlight has to be fitting five Reavers in, with some really quite mean weapon loadouts.

Woah, Technicolour!

Woah, Technicolour!

The Reavers neatly divide into three groups – Legate SC with long range artillery for blitzguarding, two shooty Reavers packing a good mix of MW, TK and AT firepower for the middle of the board, and two Reavers geared for close assault with a mix of CC, FF, and a little extra ranged MW.

I haven’t chosen which missile my support missile will be yet, possibly a Deathstrike if Ben brings a Titan, or a Barrage Missile to lay down loads of blastmarkers on some infantry if not.

I will let you all know how it goes, and should get some pictures of the game to go with it.

Have a good weekend!

Night of the Dead – Warhammer Fantasy 25,000pts Siege Game Pictures! 5

And again, though last post now.

Flying true, the bolt catches Nagash in the chest, taking his final wound and banishing him from the realm of the living!

Sadly, his demise has little effect on the Evil side

At that point we had played a full six turns and had to finish the game.

We agreed that the game would be a draw – Evil had managed to breach the castle in a number of places, but the gate was still strongly held by Good. Also, while Evil had lost most of its hitting power (Nagash, Mortarchs, Chaos Dwarf general, etc), Good still had formidable forces (Hammerers w/ characters, Ironbreakers, 2 x Treemen etc) virtually untouched.

I hope everyone enjoyed the pictures :D

Night of the Dead – Warhammer Fantasy 25,000pts Siege Game Pictures! (Deployment)

Hi Guys!

Back, and this time with a number of pictures from the big siege game my local club had recently. We had a few minor wobbles, with one of the players dropping out unexpectedly at the last minute, the venue having to be changed the day before, and being without a castle due to illness, but after a couple of hours of frantic Blue Peter-esque cutting and sticking we were ready to play.

The sides were 15kish of Undead / Daemons / Chaos Dwarves versus 10kish of Wood Elves / Dwarves.

Mortarchs of Nagash! Arkhan, Neferata, and Vlad
