Since I’ve made some pretty drastic head-way in the Derpideo conversion, I haven’t really done too much.
Wait, that’s not really the case.
I also got in a great game against a Space Marine Player, whom you will probably recognize from a previous battle report. I brought my Tyranid Highlander list to test out against is own Highlander list… and well, I got tabled in 4 turns. My MVP was the Genestealers, who wiped a unit of scouts (LOL) and ate a Whirlwind. That’s not saying much.
I don’t run into Grav Centurions very much, but these guys have an unholy amount of shooting. They managed to wipe the Swarmlord and his buddies in a single round of shooting, despite having Catalyst off. Emphasized the need for a mobile cover save (Venomthrope or Malanthrope, I guess). The Trygon prime suffered the same fate, and the Carnifex wasn’t far behind them.
To say I might have over-reacted in the aftermath of this game might be an understatement…
Since it was Victoria Day weekend here in Canada, I had an opportunity to paint and do yard work yesterday, so I got another one of those pesky Death Company models knocked off. They have so much bling it’s hard to get any kind of production mojo going like I can get base-coating the ‘Nids. I like fast, instant results more than painting jewellery… Anyways.
That’s it for now! Anticipate more posts later this week. 🙂
