I decided to give a go at The Inner Circle competition GW is doing.
Last Saturday I spent the day at the store playing in the first event, an apoc game. Well it wasn't really Apoc, but really just a large game of 40k. I took my Orks, in the Decurion with a Stompa. I was allied with AdMech, against losts of (mostly 30k) Space Wolves. I added mine up to 3500pts, but points weren't really used, so, ya.
Luckily we got first turn and I ran everything right up
Lots of dead Trukks.
So after much death, it came down to Ghazzy vs Leman Russ himself. It was basically a slap fight with 2++ saves all around. until...
Fucking D weapons!
Anyway I will be doing Dark Angels for the Inner Circle, and I have quite a bit of painting to do in the next 3 months to get up to 18 units. If I don't, well, I'll lose points!
What I have done:
2 units of Black Knights
1 unit of Ravenwing Command squad
Chaplain on bike
1 unit of Devastators
1 unit of Assault Marines
1 unit of Ravenwing Bikes
In progress: 1 (or 2) units of Tactical Marines
and the full DV set: Company Captain, Libby, Tactical squad, termies, bikes.
That adds up to 18.
Plus a display board.
Looks like the first half of this year is all Dark Angels.
I also sold my Medusa Strike Force on ebay. Time to pack the BA away for a long time...
