Sun Doesn't Rise

After a month of missed 40K nights at the Whiz, I was finally able to attend this evening's. Last week I had car trouble, so Jesse came here instead and we played on my gaming table.

Tonight, however, I went to the Whiz and was pleasantly surprised to find my friend Rob there with his Witch Hunters. It had been about six months since we last played each other, and I must say his tactics have improved significantly.


I didn't take many pictures tonight, but I did manage a photo of my Predator tank he took out in the first turn.


I was, fortunately, able to take out a very large chunk of his infantry thanks to my Dreadnought via Drop Pod, deep-striking Terminators, and melee combat.

By turn five, though, he actually managed to wipe my forces from the board. It's been a while since I've had my army tabled, and apparently it was his first time doing it.

I'll have to work on my list and tactics for next time. I seek vengeance!

Planet X

Sorry for the long wait on an update on here. Things have been rather hectic, from work to home to the girlfriend. And I've missed the last three weeks of gaming, which has sucked.

Anyway, here's a shot of the few Planetary Empires tiles I've painted up so far. I'm creating the homeworld of the Red Dragons, piece by piece. If anyone should want to "invade" it, be my guest! I think it'd be rather fun trying to thwart an assault on my chapter's home planet.

Welcome to Planet X

That's six tiles down, only another 44 to go! I enjoy painting them though; they're easy to paint and fun to think up ideas for each one. I highly recommend the Planetary Empires expansion for anyone curious about it.

Well, hopefully I can get to the Whiz tomorrow night for some gaming. My coworker Jesse said he'd most likely be going, so I'll probably be facing his Chaos Marines again.
