Batrep: Testing the Mech

So got a test game in with my new army idea, going mech.  My buddy torquer came over and played his marines against me.  Initial thoughts is that I like the army, but not 100% on all the pieces, think there is some room to improve.  My goal right now though is to keep it IG, though flip flopping on whether the scions will stay in the IG book or as ally MT.  Will see as time goes on, each has its merits.  But I want to essentially keep allies out, so that means solving problems with this book.

New direction

After doing some discussion, and a little reorganizing of the hobby space, I think I know what I am going to drive forward with in regards to IG.  Really there are two armies right now I want to play around with.  First is mech, and second is mass infantry.  I have played infantry heavy lists before, and always loved how they played.  Bullgryns have proven themselves alot and will work wonderfully in a cheap infantry list.  And armor is just plain fun.

Just around the Corner

Sorry I have been gone for a while.  Life has been busy, weather is great so I have been getting outside and doing other things with my free time.  The full Ad mech is about to be out with cult mechanicus and I am pretty darn excited.  Ad Mech is def going to be my next army, but its going to be a long haul before I build it, once the codex is out, I'll decide how I want to slice it up between cult and skitarii.

Tournament Report: Astra Militarum & Space Wolves

So yesterday I went to a local tournament and got some games in, the first in probably 4+ months, its been a while.  I took a Space Wolf/Imperial guard army to try out a few fun ideas, and suffice it to say, I did ok.  There were a lot of strong armies there, so it was a tough fight.  First game was flyrant spam, with 3 flyrants and carnifexs in tyranocytes, plus mucolids, raveners, and a few other griblies.  Second game was against white scar bikers and last against destroyer cult decurion detachment.  No one was holding back thats for sure.
