Right, this month I will be doing the following:

Wani Terror Ship (1).
Support Air Wings (5).


The Terror Ship is this months actual entry, but I intend to do the fighters as well just to get them out of the way

OK well I have been rubbish this challenge. I have failed to finish my entry 2 months in a row! SO to address this I will complete my converted dark eldar plague bearers. I feel I will have to pull all the stops out when we have a double entry month to catch up a bit.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

You would think that after running the challenge for the last few years I'd be on the ball, but alas life has been far too hectic as of late

That's a lot of plasma, Iraqiel! I can just imagine letting 20 plasma shots fly against some poor fool who comes too close... (though I assume they would be a CCS and 2 Vet squads, not a PCS and 2 Infantry Squads, judging by how many special weapons you're bringing... eh, close enough, and BS4, besides)

CSM Plog, Tactica

What sphinx of plascrete and adamantium bashed open their skulls and ate up their brains and imagination? Imperator! Imperator!

It sure is - I was worried at first that bringing 12 plasmaguns (two in my scion command) to the table for 1000 - 2500 point games was going to be too unfair, but after two games my typical rolling sees me lose 50% of them to 'gets hot', throughout the game. This means they normally whittle down a squad of marines or bikers or whatever and then eat bolts and chainsword. This list has (currently) 6 flyers (planning for 9), which means boots on the ground are few and, being guard, not too difficult to displace and destroy.

Well, I've done my next entry this month and got photos for another - tearing through the backlog, thanks kindly to doing uni long distance.

Strongpoint:




And next up, Vengeance Batteries.

I'd probably bring Kurov's Aquila for Preferred Enemy rerolls to those 1s and/or Primaris Psykers casting Prescience to save a lot of plasma deaths and make the shots more effective.

Ah! Thanks for the reminder - the white metal model in my 'to do' picture above is a primaris psyker.
