Happy New Year!
Its the start of a new year and so far I have done very little painting, but we can blame hangovers for that.
But I was able to get up the Store today and get a few 750pt games in and get some photos of the Iron Warriors on the table.
So here we have the complete 750pt force*, as you can see I have been able to get the new 32mm bases on the Space Marines, and overall Iam very happy with the look of the whole force (*the Chaos Spawn needs a bit of a touch-up, and the Chimera is not in the current list)
The first game of the night was against some raven guard, don't have many photos of the game itself but I have some of the set-up.
Story wise, Captain Trakas of the Iron Warriors has sent a scouting force to recover a artifact for the Warsmith. The Raven Guard arrived to give battle and scupper the plans of the forces of Chaos.
We were playing 'The Scouring' and I castled-up behind some defense lines and once the loyalists got close the marines engaged leaving the cultists to hold the objective. It was a fun game, which ended in a close victory with only 15 cultists left and my chaos lord. But a win is a win.
The next Game was against an elder player, following the victory against the Loyalists, Captain Trakas established a perimeter at the 'Dark Temple' but before he could recover what ever artifact he needed a detachment of Eldar set out to stop the Captains plans.
The Eldar player brought a Wraithknight, some dire avenges in a wave-serpent and a squad of guardians, the first two turns I targeted the Wraithknight with the whole army, and finally finished it off in assault (which was every unit I had apart from 5 marines)..
After that it was just a few turns of moping up the rest of the Eldar... but it was a fun game all the same and it could have gone a very different way.
I think the army looks very nice on the table, and I hope that as the year progresses I will get more fun games in.
I also have a blog, and this post + a few more pictures can be found here - An Iron Warriors Blog
