The Race is On!

I found out yesterday that my friendly local gaming store will be hosting its spring 40k league!  This time around things are going to run fast.  The games will be 850 points and there will be a one hour time limit, so we can get three games done in an evening.  The small points and large number of games mean that this is the perfect opportunity for me to learn how to play Astra Militarum.  Now when I say Astra Militarum what I really mean is despicable traitor legion dedicated to Nurgle.  I can't play as true loyalists.

The league starts on April 1st (not a joke) which means I have a LOT of work to do in the next week and a half.  Right now I have 20 guardsmen, a couple of command squads, vendetta, and manticore all painted.  In the unpainted pile I have a vanquisher tank commander, chimera, 10 more guardsmen, and 10 scions (to be used as veterans).  Fortunately I am on spring break for the next week, so hopefully I will be able to get a lot of painting done.

Stay tuned for painting updates followed by battle reports.


  1. I will.
    What's your paln against invisible units? At 850 I fear unstoppable grey knights invisible units with invul saves and feel no pain...
    I, personally,didn't find a true solution...

    1. I would probably ignore them as best as I can while playing the mission. If all else fails I will feed them a blob squad while everything else runs away.
