Hi again guys,
I hope everyone is well, and getting the most out of the hobby!
This week, I played in another multi-player game of Legends of the Old West, a GW historicals game dealing with the Wild West, the US-Mexico Wars, the Indian Wars etc. Overall a good game with interesting movement and shooting possibilities, sadly let down by an abysmal combat system. I had a terrible game last month, and lost two of the four members of my US Cavalry posse, so my involvement in the game this month was limited to taking a couple of pot shots at the rapidly escaping bad guys.
I have yet to roll up the advancements / results from the game, but hopefully I should earn enough dollars to hire another couple of troopers and get me back up to four models!
In other news I have painted up some more of my Dark Angels (are you as sick of them as I am yet?) now completing another Tactical Marine formation which gives me a full company worth of marines. These guys are armed with a mix of Missile Launchers and Special Weapons – one Melta Gun, one Plasma Gun, and one Flamer.
Otherwise, my local club is starting up a kill team campaign thing this week and I am taking my Sisters of Battle along for the ride. Hoping that the combination of a bunch of Melta and Flamer toting Dominions in an Immolator will prove fearsome enough to carry me through.
I still have the command stand for the Dark Angels company to paint up, which will happen soon, and I might have a crack at starting on some of the vehicles / bikes in the army in the next week or so.
I hope everyone is well and that their gaming is plentiful,
