Your painting skills are humbling, Killersquid.
You and people like you are so inspiring. Makes me put more effort into my own painting. Thank you for sharing.
Thank you for the kind words!
Did some work on my CSM and Ynnari (new jetbike squad to round out the force).
Also, I played a couple of games. First, was a fun highlander game.
I brought my CSM, and my friend brought his Space Wolves
I had the chaos lord, with the siegebreaker mace, 3 terminators, 3 bikes, 5 man marine squad in Rhino, mutilator, 2 units of 2 obliterators, 10 cultists and a helbrute.
Wolf Gard battle leader with a hellfrost bolter, Wolf Priest, And Ulrik the Slayer
Squad of grey hunters in a drop pod, squad of bloodclaws in a rhino, tri-las predator, long fang squad, and a squad of bikers.
We played Contact Lost, which is a maelstrom mission where you gain new objective cards for each objective you control.
Game was pretty close for most of the game. Chaos Lord killed Lukas in a challenge, but then was sucked away by Lukas's stasis bomb.
Helbrute did a good job holding up the grey hunters and the blood claws for a bit, but the Wolf Priests power maul, and krak grenades from the squads eventually took it down.
We were tied on points until the end, but I claimed 3pts in my last turn, which ended the game on a 5pt for Wolves - 8pts for Iron Warriors.
Second game was with my Ynnari Harlequins vs Genestealer Cult. My buddy wanted a 'competitive' practice game.
I had the first turn (which I kept) and we were playing ITC Mission 3 (which is kill points).
1850pts. I don't know his exact list, but he had a bunch of smaller units, all the characters and a massive first curse.
SoulBurst did me really well this game. My opponent had not played against the rule before, so was a bit thrown off by how crazy good it is. His First curse was an issue though. I had my big character blob invisible when they charged in, but he still did an incredible amount of damage. I then held them in combat by fog of dreaming his unit, and then hit and run so I could pick off models with the star weavers and windriders.
One of my favourite parts of the game, was where he summoned a unit of 10 Neopythes to kill my Death Jester holding an objective, and then I soul-burst with both units of windriders and shot them off the table.
by the end of the 4th turn, I had lost one jetbike squad, a couple of characters and a few models from a few units, and he was down to just his patriarch and a handful of genestealers. He called it, as he could not catch up on maelstrom or Kill Points.
I'm still making a lot of mistakes with the list. I need to keep my units paired up, to make best use of Soul burst. I also was far too aggressive with a few units, which cost me time or that unit.
The table was divided by a lot of LoS blocking terrain, which hindered both of our shooting, but benefited me more because of my superior mobility.
