So you can "unlearn" ...

It's quite pleasant to wander down to the local cavaliers club for a couple of hours on a Thursday evening every now and then, grab a pint of 'Old dark', and enjoy a small game with Adrian. And now that Lorraine and I have finished our rock n roll dance training commitment is over for this year, Adrian and I have started to do just that. At the moment we are 'messing around' with 400-600 point games of 40K (still using 5th edition at the moment), and I've been putting the Lost and the Damned army to use (after all, it seemed a shame to paint it up and not see the greeblies and despicable traitors out on the table top). So this time Adrian brought along his 'Sisters of battle', another beautifully painted army from his extensive collection.

It seems that from the gaming perspective this week I successfully managed to 'unlearn' just about everything I thought I had learned so far about this game system. Frankly the subtleties of the system continue to elude me - I guess I'm just slow when it comes to Warhammer 40K.

Again rather than a possibly tedious blow by blow account, just a few selected snapshots of some of the action.

The Chaos Space Marine unit managed to make it into contact with a unit of Sisters who sadly, from the CSM point of view, were quickly joined by a Penitent Engine...



The mutants ended up in contact with a unit of Seraphim and a Penitent Engine.. now that was never going to end well ...





In the finish there were only the two Traitor Sentinels and the squad of Autocannons left... very ugly.. for the Traitors ....

  1. Well, you would play with miniatures of questionable historical validity! :-)
