Since I am at the end of my Blood Angels army building it is officially time to start piecing together the rest of my Dark Eldar (Drukhari) force, so I have some progress outline down below here.
I picked up the full Court of the Archon and have put them together in all their resin glory. On top of getting the court, I also got myself another box of Kabalite Warriors since I will be needing about three more units of them (or more even). It is a small addition to my force, but I told myself I would only get a few things at any given time so I didn’t over do it.
I want to take this opportunity to point out how cool I think the Court of the Archon models are (despite them being resin) and how fun I think they will be on the battle field. They are interesting models that occupy a myriad of roles between them, but definitely will supplement my main Archon well. Out of all of them I think the Sslyth is my favorite of all, I mean he looks cool and sounds very strong. Just look at this picture of a Sslyth, it is so awesome.
Sslyth art aside, I hope it won’t be too much of a pain to paint (whenever I finally get around to that). So the end goal aim is a Kabal based Drukhari force, that isn’t just Kabalite/transport spam, so we will see how that goes I suppose.
To be fair I said I was at the end of my Blood Angel building, not done yet. Though this will be the last Space Marine stuff I pick up for a while I think, save for some divinely inspired conversion, which probably won’t happen. Anyhow some Devastators and some more Death Company to round out my options. Next and last Imperium oriented thing I get will be some Deathwatch guys, but then that will be it for the Imperium
Now the Big Faq 2 dropped and there were some major hits to FLY units, as far as charging is concerned. I am part of a Blood Angels group on Facebook and everyone went nuts for a couple days there. I only play for fun, and can barely get my stuff painted, so for me the changes while slightly regrettable aren’t the end of the world. I still love my Blood Angels, their lore is awesome, their models are cool, and they are fun to play. So as far as any nerfs to Upon Wings of Fire and to jump pack units go, it doesn’t really affect me all that much. Just might need to start fielding units like terminators more, or be more careful with your fast attack units. Ah well.
Speaking of playing Blood Angels, I had a Kill Team game with them against my friend’s Elucidian Starstriders, that was rather sweet. It took place on the Ministorum Shrine mat, using the “Free Prisoners” mission out of the Rogue Trader book. I even wrote a little narrative out for it that was pretty enjoyable to do, so maybe some of those will show up in the near future. The end result was a resounding victory for the Blood Angels, though sadly my Tactical Sergeant with Power Fist wasn’t able to do too much, ah well next time. Thinking the next Kill Team game I do will be utilizing my Dark Eldar, so that’ll be fun and might even write a report on the battle. Though I find battle reports rather tedious and they might even take away the fun of the game for me. Either way it will make for some more stuff to talk about.
Other than the Warhammer happenings I don’t have too much to say about other things, I did play the Soul Calibur 6 network test though, and I got to say I was having a lot of fun with it. Thinking it will be what replaces the Street Fighter V shaped hole in my gaming retinue. I mean they got Geralt in it, whats not to love? Other than Reversal Edges, but that is neither here nor there.
Anyway that is all I had in mind for this post, until next time!
