Necrons vs. Imperial Guard

I met my friend Vincent for a quick 500 point game of 40k last night.

He brought Imperial Guard. He had a Demolisher, Chimera, Command Squad and two units of Vets with special weapons.

I brought a basic Overlord, 2x 5 man Warriors, Annihilation Barge, 6 Scarab bases and 2 Spyders.

The Scarabs were brutal. They stripped 11 points of armor from the Demolisher on turn 2. Also, the Spyders just kept making more. I ended the game with 9 bases! I think I gained 8 bases over the course of the game. That's an extra 120 points worth! I might have to get a 3rd Spyder.

More Progress on my Tau

I got my Ethereal and a 12 man block of Kroot assembled.

The weather outside was perfect, so I did some priming. I'm following the new GW Hot to Paint Tau Empire iPad app that was just released. I'm not quite done with the test model, but I wanted to show some progress.

New Pathfinders and Kroot

I bought a box of the new Pathfinders today.  I'm quite pleased with the options.  I don't have my camera on me, but I'll take some pictures tomorrow before I prime them.

I was on a little bit of a roll today and also put together one of the old metal Ethereals as well as a 12 man block of Kroot.

I'm not sure that I'll play with the Kroot, but now that they can take Sniper rifles, they seem to be a viable choice.  I might take them, drop them in terrain and let them sit.  I've always played with Farsight and now that he's more Xenos friendly, I can try out the Kroot.

Pics to come soon.

Tau Remora Drones

I picked up a couple of Forge World Remora Drones. They were actually pretty easy to assemble. My plan is to get them painted up for Tau new release day.

I'm not sure that they're actually useful. At 110 points each they seem a little pricey. I think they're intended for anti infantry with the extra ability to fire seeker missiles against other flyers.
