You should have used your Eldar . Webway movement is lots of fun and is one of the few aspects of the game that I really did enjoy when I briefly experimented with Epic Armageddon rules.
In all honesty I find Epic Armageddon to be best ruleset GW ever put out. As someone so is 'enthusiastic' about looking at rules, thats a claim I will stand by all day.
I took marines, partly because they're painted but mostly because I could remember the rules for them! At least then I only had to work out what one army on the table did instead of both sides!
Cheers for the mini-battle reports! I enjoyed reading them and staring at the pictures. That first table looked like it was well on its way to being tyranoformed.
Snapshots of tiny scake warfare! And now for smaller scale in SPAAAAAACE
A Tau Merchant fleet? Trying to seduce an Imperial World with nice trade goods and services? Not today!
Forgot to take any more pictures as it kicked off just after this, but I'll tell you guys what happened which is nearly as good.
Tau front line cruisers used their strong forward firepower to beat the Lunar class (the middle ship) up until it was crippled and had to disengage. The dominatoor class (red prow) gave up taking nova cannon pot shots and charged in to 'cross the T' on the two merchant ships wrecking them in a hail of gunfire but sucked up torpedos from the Tau battlecruiser in return.
The imperial escort ships pounced on the Tau Orca escorts driving them to disengage and then turned, skipped over the planet to attack the Tau Explorer heavy carrier with most of them a close rangefirepower bonus. It had to brace for impract in order to survive and stopped pumping out a metric crap ton of bombers every single turn.
So I'm sure you can understand it was very exciting.
