SAMCRO v Ultramarines, my friends birthday battle

Posted in 40k, games with tags , , , , on February 22, 2019 by vobeskhan

So my friend Daniel and myself had arranged this game earlier in the year but various circumstances caused it to be delayed but today saw us fight it out and as it would have it, on Daniel’s birthday to boot.

We agreed to 3500 points, no Lords of War but Forge World could be allowed. We were both happy for a couple of proxy models too as we wanted to try a few options out that we don’t currently have.

Daniel brough the might of his Primaris led by Marneus Prime himself with a load of the newer models he’d gotten since our last battle before Christmas. Repulsor, predator, ironclad dread, storm raven etc.

My list was as follows:

++ Total: [191 PL, 2CP, 3497pts] ++

 

We decided to try one of the new missions from Chapter Approved 29018, the Eternal War mission Vital Intelligence. The board was set up, the 5 objectives placed and we got Jack on his lunch break to roll for the first round to see which was the prime objective, getting a 1 smack dab in the centre of the battlefield.

Chaos was to go first and despite Daniel saying he never manages to seize the initiative, lo and behold the dice comes up as a 6! Smurfs steal the thunder and go first.

We played for 5 hours but weren’t particularly rushing, at the end of round 1 it was 4-3 to the Smurfs. After round 2 it was 6-6, but with round 3 being our last the prime objective came up once again as a 1 and the final score was 10-8 to the Smurfs.

I think at the end of the game Daniel also had more points left on the table also but my forces tried to delete as many of his units at they could on that final round, with even the helforged scorpius defeating the ironclad in combat and nomming his remains to heal back a hull point.

All in all it was a great afternoons battling with a fun opponent. Revenge will be mine!

SAMCRO Black Legion annual Angel Bleeding

Posted in 40k, games with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 11, 2019 by vobeskhan

So my annual throw down with my friend Patrick’s Blood Angels was a little later this year, instead of taking place in the gap between Christmas and New Years we played on the first available day of the New Year down at our FLGS, Tabletop Tyrants.

We agreed to a 2500 point game, no Lords of War but Forge World was allowed. We would be fighting the Tactical Gambit mission from the 2017 Chapter Approved (which I had played through a few times now with great success), additionally we agreed to use the updated cover rules from the 2018 Chapter Approved as well as the Refined Strategy option to discard up to 6 Tactical Objective cards before the start of the game, I discarded 4 while Patrick chose to keep all the cards.

My Black Legion got first turn and between psychic and shooting reduced the sniper scouts to just 3 men who then failed their leadership and ran away.

The Angels responded by deleting my Contemptor but this then left their back lines open and Abaddon took full advantage to deep strike in. His accompanying Obliterators returning the favour against the Sicarran and all but the bike sergeant. The chaos forces also managed to destroy the loyalist contemptor and Vobeskhan the Deamon Prince assaulted the rhino, buffed up by his Diabolic Strength psychic ability.

The loyalists responded by deepstriking their own terminators within their lines in an attempt to deal with the Despoiler. However, the cataphractii failed their charge and lost half their number to overwatch, their captain however did make it into combat with the obliterators striking one down but then Abaddon intervened and tore the captain asunder before beginning to advance upon the remaining terminators.

The Angel warlord with his jumppack leading the Death Company attempted to charge Vobeskhan but despite his relic giving him a reroll on failed charges he still failed to make it in and the deamon prince ripped the rhino to shreds.

As we started my third round the light was failing as badly as the Angels resolve, with the death company and warlord falling to the psychic backlash from one of my rogue psykers perilling. Vobeskhan swooped up to menace the tactical squad in the ruins and Abaddon and the obliterators continued to rain fiery hell on any loyalist they could target. At the end of my shooting phase Patrick conceded and the score was 16-2 to SAMCRO.

This makes it 5-0 in our annual games now, and starts 2019 with a win. Hopefully it bodes well for the rest of the year.

SAMCRO Black Legion 2018 review

Posted in 40k with tags , , , , , on January 11, 2019 by vobeskhan

So 2018 wasn’t a mega busy year for me 40K-wise, only managing 6 actual games all year.

I built a few models but didn’t put brush to paint at all, dropping from the Survivor Series entirely.

The end of the year saw some new models for Chaos, and the Black Legion specifically, released. Blackstone Fortress (a Quest style board game) brought us a thunder hammer wielding Lord, with some unorthadox back up from Beastmen, Rogue Psykers and Traitor Guardsmen (fresh from the ruins of Cadia). We then got the Vigilus campaign book, and while it contains only a single entry for Chaos, the raptor lord herald of the Black Legion, it promises a second part to come in 2019 which I’m keeping my fingers crossed will include some tasty goodies for the spikey boys.

edition pts Event opponent force win draw lose year
8 2000 hecate round 4 Patrick E Blood Angels (Lamentors) 1 0 0 2018
8 3000 hecate round 5 Dave C Thousand Sons 1 0 0 2018
8 200PL Chaos Friendly Jon Night Lords 1 0 0 2018
8 2000 Incursion Proforia Edd Ultrasmurfs 1 0 0 2018
8 1500 Zone Mortalis 6 way Jack/Lee/Pete Fists/Custode/Guard 1 0 0 2018
8 2000 Smurfs Gambit Daniel Ultrasmurfs 1 0 0 2018
8 2500 angel plucking Patrick E Blood Angels 1 0 0 2019

This is my scorecard for 2018, 6 games and somehow, 6 wins. some of the best games I’ve played in this list. With great opponents and lots of great banter. Abaddon has not only bashed up Calgar twice, but also tore the Blood Angels asunder in my first game of 2019 against my friend Patrick Ellwood in our annual throwdown (I shall make a seperate post with photos from that game shortly).

Looking ahead to 2019 and the All Scars are running an Escalation Campaign from January through to June, starting at 500 points and adding 100 points each month up to a 1000 point showdown in June. Eager to play a few more games this year I’ve thrown my hat into the ring and have my first match in the coming week against Cadian Guardsmen under the command of another good friend, Dave Clarke. Our previous battles have always been close and great fun, so I’m really looking forward to this.

Here’s hoping 2019 resounds with cries of “For the Warmaster!”

SAMCRO Black Legion – Paint it Black

Posted in 40k, modelling/painting with tags , , , , , , on May 6, 2018 by vobeskhan

A friend and fellow worshipper of the Dark Ones posted in a group chat a photo of his assembled force this morning and I realised that I hadn’t taken my annual photo of my painted so far Black Legion.

SAMCRO’s trials within the Hecate gate

Posted in 40k with tags , , , , , , , on February 4, 2018 by vobeskhan

So over the past five month’s I have been taking part in the latest of the All Scars annual narrative campaigns – The Hecate Gate.

Basically our forces have been sucked into a demi-plane by Tzeentch and Khorne and are being forced to battle to prove ourselves worthy of facing the final guardian (Magnus) and escape via the Gate.

We formed teams amongst ourselves and I was in team WAAC (Win At All Costs, because its entirely the opposite of how we play). My goal for this campaign was to face as many people that I hadn’t played before as possible or failing that opponents I have a good laugh with.

Game 1 was against David’s Blood Angels, now in 7th edition I had a good track record against the Sanguin Sons however this did not prove so against the brutality of David’s assault.

Game 2 was another imperial force, Crimson Fists run by Adam. This was one of the most fun, relaxed and enjoyable games of 40k I’ve played in ages, and the sneaking a win by 2 points  made it even better.

Game 3 was another first, facing the Ultrasmurfs of Matthew, bouyed by my success against Adam I was brought rapidly down to earth as Matthew’s helblaster entrenched forces ripped me a new orifice. Great fun though.

Game 4 was Blood Angels once again, this time my annual throwdown with Patrick. He brought a Blood Angel and Lamenters force while I fielded my Black Legion with a Thousand Son allied battallion. It was exceedingly close and Patrick thought he’d just managed to secure a draw when I destroyed his leviathon in close combat and reminded him of the Objective card I’d held since the first round to score a point for destroying a unit in assault – sneaky 1 point win to me.

Game 5 was yesterday and was against another of my favourite people to play Dave C, usually I face his Ultrasmurf’s but this time I faced his Thousand Sons. Chaos on Chaos! It was a brutal, fun-filled game with both of us having equal amounts of amazing and dire dice rolls in good measure. Dave came back hard in closing round but the mission conditions granted me just enough points for a 7-5 win.

Another of the fun parts of this campaign was the fact that its the first one I’ve not been involved in running myself, so all I had to do was play my games and enjoy. Huge thanks to all my opponents and Andrew for organising a great campaign – thoroughly enjoyed myself.

All Scars painting challenge – The Survivor Series 2017 – October

Posted in 40k with tags , , , , , on October 28, 2017 by vobeskhan

So this month I wasn’t really feeling the urge to paint (possibly due to some proposed changes to the series which have sadly been made official since) so just pledged a CSM unit, possibly a Havoc squad.

Settled on a Havoc squad built from my modified Calth heavy weapons men and their accompanying champion.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Not sure if there will be further pledges as the whole format of the series is being altered (with only 2 months of the current year to go for no reason other than the new supervisor within the All Scars wanted to).

New format is pledge any single model rather than a fieldable unit, so single marine/grot/familiar etc.

Showcases will be every other month.

Voluntary “donation” of £5 towards the extra showcase prizes which will also gain you entry to a raffle.

oh well, guess the idea is no longer to encourage us to field painted forces but just have odd miniatures here and there.

 

All Scars painting challenge – The Survivor Series 2017 – September

Posted in 40k with tags , , , , , on September 30, 2017 by vobeskhan

This month I knew I wouldn’t have a lot of time (or inclination) to paint so wanted to do something small – having looked in a few of my old boxes I cme across an old rhino back from my Space Wolves days and since that force is never going to see the light of day again I decided to repurpose it for my SAMCRO Black Legion.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It’s not going to win any awards but it matched the rest of my army and thats good enough for me.

Now I just need to decide what to do for Octobers pledge……
