A Moral Victory

Played 1000 points of Guard vs Space Marines last night.  The battle went 4 rounds, and I lost by a point, but I scored a moral victory... Al'Rahem shot a Storm Talon out of the air the moment he stepped on the field - with a plasma pistol.

Back... I think

I haven't been writing about my 40k adventures much, but happily I have been enjoying the hobby.  I got frustrated with trying to learn how to play with the complexities of the Dark Angels codex and decided to try something different.

Going with one of my original ideas, I've made some good headway on a Dune-themed Imperial Guard army.  So far it consists of a partial platoon each of Cadians(representing Atreides troops) and Tallarn (representing Fremen); a Chimera meant for Tallarn command units, a few heavy weapon squads (all Cadians for now), and 3 Leman Russ tanks.

I'm following my old trend of buying nearly everything used, and all but 1 Leman Russ at a big discount.   Living with a guy who used to own a game store has some distinct advantages.

I still suck at taking pictures of minis, but I'll try to get some up soon.  In the mean time I guess I should finish my fortress of redemption.  Between that and my existing armies I should be busy all winter... hopefully.
