Bit o Fun..

Last night I had to run to the store and do some other odds and ends so nothing really got done. I did de-sprue a box of guardians and three War Walkers.
I scrapped some flash off some of the Walkers but then got bored with that so thought up a few lists for the Kill Teams that I'll be running this Saturday. I'll be playing one of them and a friend will probably be playing another.

The spaces separate the lists above.. With Battle Focus these could be some decent lists. In Kill Teams there's so much cover that even with low armor saves you'll be getting a decent cover save. Scorps will really benefit from that having the built in Stealth now. I'm leaning toward the Spears with Avengers, I think it could be a decent list that will have speed and the chance to really put the hurt on. With BF and BS the Avengers could be pretty strong and the SSpears will jump all over bringing the pain. My friend is leaning toward using my Fire Dragons .. that's a lot of Battle Focused Melta on the move.

All in all it should be a good time, Kill Teams usually is, boiling down to a hectic hail of bullets and fists. For two rounds someone is an Ally killing a shared enemy only to get lite you up on the next round. You never know who to trust and that makes it even more enjoyable. Personal grudges fire up and you will typically see the same people going right after each other. Good times.. Last KT one of my Banshee's took out my friend Josh's last Mega Nob, so I'll have to be on the look out for him. 8) 

With only 200 points and no Ally Additions it makes list building tough and fun. No one is going to have an uber OP force and even if they seem to be a little stronger then the others it's not really a big deal. People will notice and team up on you, so trying to make a uber force doesn't always pay off. The climint of 40K seems to be changing a lot, people only playing what's the strongest, cherry picking allies and generally playing bland spam lists. KT's is a somewhat quick game where none of that comes into play. Play what you like and have some fun, the only thing you win is a chance to talk some more smack. Plus it usually gives me a chance to paint some stuff that I normally don't play.
