Hey guys, how’s it going?
Since we last spoke, I’ve been in another tournament, and played a couple of games too. Ups and downs; I suffered one of my worst ever defeats, suffered another two defeats that came down to a single dice roll or shooting attack (major wins if they went my way) and also my first win in months!
I’ve abandoned ships in my lists, and I’m going full gunline. Something like this:
1 knight incantor with everblaze comet
x4 20 Arkanauts with 6 skyhooks
x2 6 Endrinriggers
and I’m having much more success. Although I’ve only scored 1 win, games have been much closer and I’ve been fighting down to the wire (with one exception) rather than weakly folding out.
On the mini front, I’m getting those little red grass tufts for my Arkanauts, and I’m planning to build and/or paint some more this weekend. But there’s something else. Look at what I found:
I found Pirazzo’s Lost Legion! I bought these guys years ago, with the intention of building an alternative Empire army, but I had to shelf them due to life commitments.
But now I’ve dug them out of my dad’s place and the project resumes, in AoS form! I think they’ll make a great Freeguild force. Ironically, what with their looted lizardman treasures, they actually suit the AoS aesthetic better than the Empire range imo.
Some issues though; I’ve only got 25 of them. I’m short 5 crossbowmen. And Pirazzo is missing his sword. Oh, and there’s only one set on sale that I can see, and it’s £145. So...tricky.
