Some of you see where this is going, lol

My opponent deployed the scarabs out of LOS behind the aegis. He put 2 Daemon Princes out of LOS from most of my army. I deployed around my Aegis, hoping to maybe do some early damage and maybe get lucky with my opponent's reserve rolls. I made a misake in deploying my rhinos on the right flank, I should've deployed them centrally to better use the plague marines.

I'm not going to bother doing a full blow by blow, this one is really easy to sum up. I rushed the rhinos forward to try to hit the scarabs early, but didn't have LOS. I think I took a few shots at a dp with the quad gun. He got most of his flyers in and first wiped out my quadgun forces, then turned on to take down the rhinos. I believe I killed one heldrake, the scarab squad, and that's it for killpoints. He tabled me on turn 5, so, not an overly encouraging performance.

I rather like this photo, it's definitely the feel I want for my army!

I didn't take any further pictures, basically the rest of my guys died! I suppose these things happen, lol.

Well, that's the first update. I'll have the rest of the games up over the next week, along with some Astral Claws posts, I've got my hands on the new Space Marine codex, and even had an apocalypse outing with them and my newly created titan! I also recently got the models I need to make 3 Slaanesh Daemon Princes, and once those are done I'll be getting a Ghorgon to convert into a Keeper of Secrets. This means a Red Corsairs slaanesh warband is brewing!

My Eldar are on hold pending completion of some other projects, I'd like to get my CSM, Daemons, SM IG and Blood Angels projects wrapped up. Eventually I'll need some daemonettes, but I have the existing models and well, they're ugly. the metal once are pricey on ebay though.

Anyhow, TTFN.
