Got some battles in today! Yeiw.

I play once a fortnight against the same two dudes usually and we have added a 4th to the group, a few of us could get together today for some games on our usual 'off' weekend. The Nids went very well actually, I was pretty worried about the match up against the Orks but the devourers honoured their name on every unit sporting them and put so many wounds on it was almost unfair.


Off camera are the Children of Cryptus and a Lictor on the right. A Tyrannocyte and a Tyrannofex are about to deepstrike and i the corner to the left the Crone has just melted some Deffkoptas, at this point I thought for sure I was cooked, luckily the bubble wrap of gants kept me safe until it was my turn again.

It was shit hot to play an almost fully painted army against another fully painted army, it added to the experience a whole heap. The game was called on turn 3, I'd just done too much damage with only the two Battlewagons and a Dakkajet remaining from the Ork force.


Showcase: Hive Fleet Behemoth Malanthrope

I hated painting this model.. Normally not something I would say about the amazing sculpts from Forge World but I was stuck in a quagmire when it came to getting it done, there was just something about it.. In the end I actually painted it completely twice, just because I wasn't happy with the finish the first time so I just re-primed the thing and started again over the top. Now, I am happy enough with the results, the Malanthrope looks pretty grim, all covered in gore and juice as it picks its way around the battlefield farming the corpses of the fallen.
Anyway, I'm really glad it's done, its got a hell of a lot of utility on the battlefield!
