Batrep 109: Orks Orks Orks

 It was short game. Took maybe an hour and a half, with a brief moment to pet her dog. I swear the little guy looked like an ewok. In her defense, I think we screwed up the attacks the ork robot had in the fight phase.

Batrep 108: First 40k since like... 2003?

 It was a fun game but there was a real leap of faith here on what was going on. Not that my opponent wasn't on the up and up, rather I was completely unprepared for what Death Watch does. That said, I had fun and am learning.

Batrep 107: Is not illegal if you believe it comrade.

 The list is legit comrade. No need to check. (It's totally illegal, you can't mix KV-1s and IS-2s. Thanks for "C3K" for being the fun police.)

The "Objective".

You may not like it, but this is what desperation looks like.

Thanks to Charlie (Tank Rider) for running the shindig.  I can't thank him enough.

Batrep 104: Armada- Cpt. FishFace

The twin Cr30 strategy I see myself using for a while.  I really like how they just mopped up when kitted out with a whole slew of upgrades (unmentioned nor filmed).  They had rapid reload... ackbar in the frigate... just about everything to give them a devastating alpha.  

The opening moves.  I could have benefited to pay attention to my fighters.  If I recall, he spent less than I but dutiful shepherding of squadron orders leveraged them against me.  In the end all that was left was 2 stands of Tie fighters with damage.

Homina homina homina.  Torpedoes locked and loaded.

SCREEEEEACH.  It was a real close rub.  But in the emptiness of space, I'm sure it's a fluke.


End game was brutal with the whole board mostly cleared.  A pyhric fight if anything.

Batrep 103: Armada Learning Game

Fun game.  Crackor is still teaching the ropes and this is literally my second game in this system, but like the nth naval game... even more so if you count Battletech as a naval game.  Which you should, because it is.  (Defiler's Vulture not withstanding).

True MVPs.  The hammer and anvil strategy with the Nebulons seems to work.

All kinds of deployment mistakes.  I couldn't deploy fighters like that legally.

The big furball.

And the death wedge gets picked at by gnats.
