Hello all, I’ve been slowly cleaning out my basement lately and I recently dug out my Sisters of Battle.
Got a lovely email from Peter Williamson the TO for Runefang VI next weekend with all of the army lists for the event attached and a breakdown of the armies attending.
In addition to getting a ton of building of non-Bretonnian models built in the past week, I have had 2 hours a night to work on my Grail Reliquae and finish it up. I dropped the Questing Knights from my list a few weeks ago after their less than appreciable performance in a few games and replaced it with a full Grail Reliquae.
Managed to finish these guys last night which means I only have some movement trays and a display board to do and my army for Runefang VI is all sorted.
As the fimir project is ticking along nicely now, recently my mind wandered to all the accoutrements I’d like to add to it to keep the theme running. The most obvious one was dice. Having found the appropriate fimir icon I wanted, I contacted The Dice Shop , and they made some snazzy custom dice up for me. Next up was somewhere to put said dice. I had my eye out for a nice dice bag with something to connect it to the army. I finally found a perfect leather dice bag with a single eye on it at Abbot Hollow Studios on Etsy . Etsy is a dangerous site, and will relieve you of all your money in no time flat. Randy from Abbot Hollow is very accommodating and he is super fast in sending out your stuff. Definitely worth a look for dice bags as well as other leathery goodness.
As Daemons are primarily an assault army then you really want to look at the fast moving units, after all you do not want slow asses lumbering up the field and getting shot to pieces i.e Bloodletters. To start off the Speed Daemons list I am going to throw in a Bloodthirster. Anything which has wings is going to be fast plus the Bloodthirster is an awesome ass kicker. I will throw on two greater rewards, which with good rolling can make the Bloodthirster into a flying big ass devil. I fancy some Daemon Princes in the list for anti air support, the are expensive and the lash reward is random, but it is all Daemons have got. Two of these will do nicely and I'll take on them daemonic flight, warp forged armour & 2 x greater rewards. At the moment I am in double FOC territory, I have the option of taking a Keeper of Secrets (anything slaanesh is fast) which will add another monstrous creature into the army or use the points to inject into other areas of the army. I think I will go the Keeper route and take two greater rewards along with mastery level 2 psyker, hopefully can get invisibility on the telepathy table. Onto fast attack then seems this list is all about being fast.
The Games Workshop Memphis Battle Bunker had one amazing table of Cityfight terrain.
So I recently played a game vs a friend of mine. It was a big bash of 2500 points on a heavy terrain board that looked like this: It was my Chaos Marines vs his Chaos Marines, Dawn of War Purge the Alien. His list was Khorne Lord w/ Power Maul Melta Bombs Dark Apostle with Burning Brand MoK 2 Khorne berserker squads in Land Raiders with Dirge Casters/Possession 20 Slaanesh Marines with Icon of Excess 2 Plasma, Champion with Plasma Pistol/Power Weapon 30 Cultists: 3 flamers, MoK Helldrake: Hades cannon 3 Hellbrutes Vindicator 3 Oblits: MoN I brought my Noise Marine army that was Slaanesh Lord: Power Weapon Meltabombs Dark Apostle 2 Hellbrutes
Well there's no going back now as I just submitted my Fortress Europe Fallschirmjager list to Tim Ward NATCON's FOW competition TO.
