No Ravenwing.

Ordered on the 1st.
Dispatched on the 10th (4 days late in itself)
Now I have to wait 28 days from the 10th before they'll repost it.
So I'll probably get it in time for my birthday (20th July). Sigh.
In the meantime i'm moving house, and don't have a lot of time/room to paint. Should be back into the swing of things about July 3rd or so.

Won't be at Garrison tonight, going to see Transformers at the IMAX. Yum.

Where are the other two, and why aren't they posting pics of their models?

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

Well, I've heard that life is what happens while you wait for plans to work out, so not surprising really.

UPDATE! We met and had a game. 4th Player got lumped with unexpected work, so couldn't show, but my little brother filled in. So, our armies:


My Ultramarines. (Captain Pictured is a Proxy, Real HQ coming month three.) They're quite a nice army, no?



Saul's Exorsists (he was the only one to actually finish them on time!)



Ross's Angels Vermillion (They didn't arrive in time, so some parts not fully painted.)



And my Little Bro (Shas'o Sautark on here) Was kind enough to fill the gaps. Can you see my birthday present to him. Yup, that's forgeworld!

Continued next post.

We played two games, Ross vs. Sautark and Grot vs. Saul.

So, for the battle report, I have written it in the style of a short story from the leader of my armies' perspective. But first, my list (I didn't ask the other's for their lists):

Captain Augustus (Thunder hammer)

Scout Squad Ixis (5 men, Heavy bolter and a sniper rifle)

Tactical Squad Pheron (5 Men)

Rhino Invictus (Storm Bolter)

Assault Squad Malleus (5 Man, Power Fist, Storm Shield, Plasma Pistol)

******
As the midday sun glared down on the battlefield on Tasitus Minor, Augustus surveyed the area. Calgar himself had sent him to claim a servitor in the area that had witnessed a previous battle, as it had Heretical information in its secondary Cortex. As he located the Servitor on his auspex, he sighted marines from the Exorsists chapter. "Relent! The Servitor is ours!" He said down the vox-channel.

Turn One:
Augustus sighted a Dreadnought in the opposing army "Damn" he spat. The vox-channel crackled into life "This is chapter masted Julius Ferox, This Servitor has been claimed for the Holy Inquisition! Stand down! There is no need for bloodshed!" Augustus ordered his men forward. "We claim the Servitor in the name of Ultramar and the Emperor! Relent Immediately!" Said Augustus. "We will come to blows, Should you continue of this path. The choice is yours... Brother..." Was the reply. "So be it." Muttred Augustus to himself, as he gave the Order to fire to Scout Squad Ixis. Squad ixis opened fire, Sniping one Marine and mowing another down with Heavy bolter fire. Squad Malleus Shot forward and raked the Dreadnought with Plas-fire, but to no effect.

Turn Two:
"Heretics! Traitors!" Screamed Ferox. "A Heretic may see the truth and seek Redemption, but a Traitor may find no rest, not in this life, nor the next! In Nomine Princeps!" The Skies Darkened as Battle Barge Flaggellum Daemonum of the Exorsist fired a Bombardment at the field. It proved largely inneffective, but the shockwave snapped the tracks of the Invictus. One of Squad Ixis was also felled by Bolter fire.
"The Inquisition and their Lapdogs have betrayed men beyond count!" Yelled Augustus. Another two marines of the Exorsists Chapter were felled by Ultramarine Bolter Fire. Squad Malleus Charged the Dreadcnought, but two of their men were killed as the Dreanought lashed out at one, And threw another over his shoulder.

Turn Three:
One Ultramarine fell to a pot-shot as Ferox and his Retinue Charge Augustus and Pherion. One more Ultramarine was brought low by a Combat knife, and Augustus was badly wounded by Ferox himself, But Augustus raised his hammer and brought it down, Ending Ferox's part in the battle. Despite the loss on men and the damage done to their leaders, neither side relented. The last two marines from the first exorsists Squad were brought low by Fire from squad Ixis- they had Truly earnt their place in the chapter.

Turn Four:
Malleus Immobilized the Dreadnought, While Augustus brought a score of Exorsists low with his hammer. Seeing the battle lost, Exorsists teleported into their battle barge, Leaving Victory to Augustus.
******

Augustus Breathed Hard as he limped toward the servitor, His breath coming hard. HE squared up to the Mechanical Abomination, And spoke "Tell me all you know." The Servitor Whirred to life, Responding in a monotone. "Query: Do you refer to the battle on Hyperios?" "Yes." Responded Augustus. The servitor Nodded. "It began like this...."

Here is the somewhat overdue month 2 post:

Month 2
Purchases: Scout Snipers box set, £15.
Carries to next month: £10.

This adds another Troops choice/scoring unit to my army, and a modicum more ranged support. To keep points to a minimum and the unit expendable, they will all carry sniper rifles. As for paintwork, largely the same as before, though adapted to suit scout armour (I painted an Exorcist marine and a scout for Grot a while back, and I was really pleased with the scout). The only thing that required further thought was the cloak. Now, I never understood the logic of camo cloaks, given the background has always been quite explicit that marines do not use camouflage: they are to be seen and feared. So, looking to the rest of my force, I decided to use white to tie the scouts in with my force commander.

All the best, and look forward to seeing everyone elses month 2s.

Saul.
