As promised. I tried to get the digicam..and got it (borrowed again).


tank traps

total shot

2 rippers


I also have a shot somewhere of a finished xxxxx blockade (no that's not a blockade of a porn site..just an x shaped road block). And a shot of the finished tanktrap scenery.
To conclude: the rippers aren't completely done. And as for moldlines on the barrels..well those barrels were put together ages ago and should've been removed then. I just repainted them.
All in all I hope you like the scenery. It looks a hell of a lot better on the table top than some random stuff. I intend to put more painted GW trees on 80mm bases (Chris ..if you need a couple of 80mm bases..just ask) and make a small forest that doesn't fall over.

Solid Loss...

well that was my side.

I hadn't fought Tau in a long while..and there I mean a VERY long while. I've seen them on the field of battle but didn't have a 1500pts head on.
We did a 1500 pts 6x4' Seek & Destroy. Tau Tim learned from former mistakes and deployed his army a bit better than other times. I did make what I think in hindsight was a major mistake. I put my Flying Tyrant on a side where it did do some damage, but just not enough. It took out the broadsides (or however it's spelled) with ease but after that it was a too short cat & mouse. Run and run and hit.

I did get first turn which helped me run towards the tau but I think I might have engaged the wrong squads. I killed all firewarriors but I left a sq of stealthsuites and a big nasty 380pts HQ almost untouched.
A single ravener managed to tie the HQ up for more than 3 assault turns but didn't manage to do more damage than ripping apart the off gundrone.

After the major spoils of war were over it came down to a rather strange chase.
The Tau were backing away with their move, shoot, move turn so they gave my slower units a look at their tails. In the meanwhile they kept shooting me up.
With the total embarrassment and I think selffulfilling prophesy of a gundrone taking off the last wound of my flying tyrant. DAMNIT!!!

Well officially it's a solid victory for the Tau. can't run forever! If I would have had a turn or 2 more I think I might have caught the Tau and utterly destroyed them. Oh was a very nice game.

In other news: I've been building some terrain. One is just a simple 80mm base with 4 barrels on it which are a bit shot up and leaking chemicals. But they look quite cool! The other one is a GW tree which I painted so it actually looks kinda real and a small bush and 2 barrels where some rippers are coming out of cracks they made in the barrels. The rippers aren't finished and the basing has to be done but it already looks cool! Oh and I finished a double tank barrier/ x blockade. Also looks quite cool. Haven't done so much terrain building in ...well ever.
I might put up some pictures next weekend..IF I get hold of the cam.

Finally an update

Stop's a 40k blog (mainly). And I didn't have any time for 40k the last weeks :(
So in other news. I still haven't settled in in my new's still one hell of a mess! But my pc and my bed are installed so the most important parts are in place ;)

Last week was a whirlwind. Getting up early..going out the door..and coming back in late. Little sleep many things to do. Signing contracts, tricking people into renting my old room, ninjitsu training where we had to jump as much as a frog in his complete life, a case study (subject) project where we had to set up a communications bureau with it's own filosophy and a plan of what we want to do with the assignment. Deadline on fryday 16.30. In the meanwhile boyo Erwin decided to go check out the booze in the pubs of Groningen on thursday night. It was snowing like mad, I didn't have gloves and had to bike for at least 15 minutes to get him a bike ..plans changed with me biking him back to my room (still snowing..but he braught my gloves!) finally home again..a little while later he got on the bike and went out.
At 11pm I started on the forementioned assignment together with a group partner. We decided to call it a night at 3am. Sms'ed Erwin and he told me he would come home somewhere within the next...well whatever. I went to bed and had to open the door at 4.20 am. We got up again on 8.45. Had to work on the assignment again at 11 am. We delived the assignment in the dropbox at 4.25 right on time. Next had to do a big dishes with Erwin, cook and go off to Veendam again. Next day party at my sister's. Not too much booze..but still little sleep. Built a snowman...will put up a pic later on. I stayed on sunday's aswell because of 1 the snow 2 my student's public traffic card let's me travel for free from monday till fryday ;) home at 11.30 am. Got college at 12 till 2. Went home..nice hailstorm in my face! 4 pm college again..wooptiedoo. 6.30 home again with groceries. Dished-cooking (have to get another rhytme damnit) and off to a meeting and a drink in a pub. Home at 0.30 ...had to get up early this morning ..obligatory college.
So that's what I've been doing. Oh and I don't have any 40k with me atm.
And the Noorderspel event looks like it's being cancelled damnit!!!

Off to hit the showers and off to college!

P.S. it's international women's day...teehee :S
