We went camping last weekend near where my friend Chet lives so he came out for the evening and I passed on some Flames of War materials I had picked up for him from Gametronics in New Minas. We also all played a fast, fun game of Forbidden Island which we lost.
My son Tristan and I have been dusting off (literally in my case) our Warhammer 40k miniatures and trying a few games of 6th edition. 1250pts of Orks vs. Imperial and the games are pretty fun though there is some frustration playing the Orks!
I have been working slowly on trying to get my Flames of War Germans finished off and they are coming along pretty well with the hopes of doing a beach landing game soon.
Works in progress:
|10.5cm German battery.|
|The battery all together. Finishing details and shading still required.|
|Spotters, HQ and staff.|
|US spotter plane.|
|StuGs from the Open Fire starter set.|
|Tiger 1's from Plastic Soldier Company.|
|7.5Pak40's from the starter set as well.|
|The setup, scenario is Big Guns Never Tire with Dawn of War deployment.|
|The bulk of the Orks.|
|My Deffcopters advance on the flank.|
|and are quickly taken out, a general advance as the Imperial Guard stays put.|
|Closing on the other flank.|
|My center has been destroyed.|
|Nearing the end, my Deff Dread tore apart the Punisher but the IG got a 7-4 win.|
|The second game. Scenario: The Relic, deployment: Hammer and Anvil.|
|The IG line.|
|The Orks pile in, moving on either flank. While the IG squad in the center drop the relic and run after the Killa Kans charge them.|
|The IG Chimera is destroyed while the Leman Russ blows up taking some IG with it.|
|The carnage at the end. The Orks won this one 2-0.|
|The Ork pile of dead.|
