Warhammer 40k: Almost Done with 40k!

The title is a dramatic for effect.  I read a nice article on 3++ about the conversion from 4e to 5e and the pain it was.  With 6e coming out in July, I plan to stop playing 5e after the DW tournament June 9th.  This way I can start to forget what I have learned about 5th edition and begin with as blank of a slate as I can.  Shouldn't be that hard. 

I do plan on working on my Black Templar to finish them early and then begin to work on the Chaos stuff I have been purchasing.  I picked up three FW dreads (Thousand Sons, Alpha Legion, and Black Legion), have a Storm Eagle that should be here soon and plan on picking up a decimator. 

I managed to get two games in this weekend.  A quick 1500 point game against Space Marines and a 2000 point battle against Space Wolves.

The Space Marine battle featured Matt playing with the Ultramarine Chapter Master and a LR (500 points in a IC and his ride).  Besides playing against me, Matt also had to contend with his dice.  It was table corners and three objectives.  Two on Matt's side and one on my side.  Matt kept it close but his dice and my Vindicators were right on.  I lost two initiates and a Razorback. I won the match 1 -0.

The Space Wolves wasn't so pretty.  We were playing NOVA missions with objectives being win scenario.  After a brutal first round where I almost lost both squads of terminators, I started at least doing damage.  It was an uphill battle that I lost horrificly.  4-1 Todd.

    1. It was a fun game. Learned a lot and you don't make a lot of mistakes (like blocking your charge lanes and handing me the game. Right, CTD? ZING! 8P).

  3. I'm getting back into the game currently, so I haven't really focused on the rules seeing that the new ones will be out by the time I get my Space Wolves ready. Good thing I already purchased the stuff that I want. According to Miniwargaming.com the prices are going up 5-20%! For example, the Space Marine battleforce that is currently $130 Canadian is going up to $155 (I assume this means that in the US it will go from $110 to $130).

    1. GW's yearly price increases are getting a bit out of hand. I was going to purchase a bunch of the Chaos stuff I wanted but luckily I found a friend that wants to sell me theirs for a nice discount.
