Sorry I missed last weeks update, but in my needless defence, I was painting! It’s been a mad couple of weeks, but the work progresses.

Outlanders painting competition.

Every year our club, the Rugby Outlanders, have a painting comp and I always enter. Timed to coincide with the end of the league games, it’s a 2 part competition. The 2 week of club each new year we all bring our entries. We have categories and each category win get a small glass trophy. These top 4 then are brought back the next week and we all vote again. The winner gets the big trophy and a battle force box set.

I enetered 2 categories, veteran sci fi and veteran fantasy. You can see all the entries here

I was lucky enough to Win both categories and I am in the final round on Wednesday!

The fantasy category was very tight and my piece, “bugmans rest” was up against it. I had won the model in last years killteam competition. I built the burned out pub around him and mounted it on an old base. This took me two weeks to complete, but it was so worth the effort.

While the voting was on, I also got to play a 1000 point game of 40k, vs a white scar force. As it was non league and a relaxed game, I took a list I’d not normally use. It’s not a nice list, but it’s moly for a fun game.

Ultramarines, 1,000 points

Now, you notice that it has both of the big forgeworld flyers in the list. This is quite simply over kill in a 1000pts game. My opponent took something like this.

The game lasted 5 turns, but the outcome was never really in doubt. I deployed my 1 tactical squad, split down behind 2 pieces of scenery, waited out turn one and the flyers came in on turn 2. His infantry heavy list had no real threats to my flyers. He just died. The raptor killed most his force, the eagle dumping the captain and the full 2nd squad, again split down, killed of the khan and moped up the survivors. It was a good natured game, but, I’d never play such a filthy list in a proper game. My opponent was aware that I was going to cheesy, so it was not power gaming. Honest. End result was he was tabled. I lost 5 marines.

Painting
As well as the massive amount painting for the comp, I have also finished my centurions. These are ready for the nids that I am facing this week. Next week it’s back on the sternguard and then some Orks.

Till next week, see you across the battle table.
