Space Wolves Vs. Blood Angels Video BatRep

by Thomas aka Goatboy from Bell of Lost Souls.
Hey Bear Cubs, Grizz here. Was able to swing down to Dicehead Games today and get a game in against my good buddy Wiley the Nord. He was needin to practice for the 'Ard Boyz this weekend, and I'm always in the mood for a good game so I added 500 points to my Space Wolves and headed to Cleveland.

---The Mission---

40K Ard Boyz Preliminary Scenario 2:
Whoz got da Motz!

Control as many objective counter as possible.

This scenario uses a modified Seize ground (page 91) missions.  Please note that there are 
always 5 objectives, DO NOT ROLL.
Before determining who goes first an objective marker is placed in the center of all four 
table quarters.  The fifth and final objective is placed in the direct center of the table.  The 
objective in each Deployment table quarter is worth 1 point.  The objectives in the empty 
table quarters are worth 2 points and the objective in the center of the board is worth 4 

Spearhead as seen on page 93 of the main rulebook

Length of Game:
This game last 6 turns, or until time is called, so that each player completes the same 
number of turns.

Special Rules:

If a player has 5 more objective points than his opponent.
Major Victory: 
If a player has 3 more objective points than his opponent 
Minor Victory: 
If a player has 1 more objective points than his opponent 
If both players have the same number of objective points the game is a draw.

Homemade, CustomThunderwolf Cav

Well, I have been wantin to run some thunderwolves, but I haven't found any models that really tickled my fancy. I've seen the Mythicast, the Russian wolves, all the ones from eBay, nothin tickled my fancy. So I began the arduous journey of making my own. I slaved over the desk, fought with the green stuff, stayed awake for nights on end. I have poured my heart and soul into these, and I believe it shows. Without further ado, I give you my Thunderwolves.

Ok, so by now you probably know these are nothing more than a proxy/filler. I am wanting to try out some TWC's, but ain't really sure how and how many. So I threw these bad boys together in order to have something on the table other than empty bases. I ran out of the big bases, but as luck would have it, a Copenhagen lid is the exact same size. Hopefully I will get a chance to try them out tomorrow. Till next time!

Wolves On Dark Eldar Action!!!!

Hey all, got a game in last week against my good buddy Wiley the Nord from Ghostlight of Commoragh. I got to try out my newest list versus a tourney style DE army. He decided to do a battle report and post it on his blog.

Before going any further...

Click this Link To Read The Batrep!!!! Spoilers Be Below!!!!!!

Ok Now on to some thoughts about the game, the list, etc.

The game was a blast, as is every game between Wiley and myself. Basically the first turn set the tone for the rest of the game. I was able to weather the storm of his 1st shooting phase, and that allowed me to bring all my guns to bear. I made a lot of cover saves, and my shooting throughout the game was very effective. I really love the ATC mission, as it really forces you to make three dimensional lists, and it gives you a good idea on how your list will fare in any given situation.

Thus far this list is 3-1-0. It is playing consistently and I have really enjoyed it. I think at some point I am gonna want to put some TWC in it, something to counter all the deathstars out there. We shall see, but for now I am really enjoying this list!
