Respect and Honor
For the Event and the Guard I wanted to get some work done on a Vendetta I had built up. I started adding some details to the model such as the 134th's symbol and numbers. I added the bands, the cockpit glow and the main thing I want to look cool when finished is the nose art. Back in WWII they would paint a Pin Up on the nose of an airplane. My Grandfather was in the Army Air-force and I have a few of the pictures of him from the war. One was a plane he worked on ..
His unit of the game I'd say was the Turox Prime and it's passengers. I couldn't kill that thing or them, I put so much fire into it but it wouldn't die, I eventually did stop it but sadly couldn't make it explode and he piled out hiding behind it. More firepower into the Scions and couldn't kill them. The scatter die wasn't my friend this game and The Eradicator nor Wyverns did very much. The game was going back and forth but in Tim's 4th turn he changed it for good, he had a great shooting round and pop'd my Russ, Chimera and took out the rest of one Vet Squad. The game was points in table quarters and with those units going down I didn't think I was going to be able to pull it off, turn 5 the game ended and it ensured I wasn't going to be able to do it. It was a great and hectic game against a good player so the lose was still a win. The units we thought were going to be the real stars didn't seem to shine but the unexpected stood out! I'm going to reread the codex and need to brush up on my Guard skills. 8)
My played John's Chaos Space Marines later with my Eldar and they had a good game giving me the win. But again was a fun game! Sadly I had been up since 5am and was completely out of steam. We went out for dinner at the Diner but I was falling out quick. I ate and then went home crashing out immediately haha.. Was a long day but was a good one, I got to pick up a bunch of Dar and some BA from a collection someone sold at the store .. I got a good deal but I'll talk about that tomorrow most likely.
