Post "Throne of Skulls pt 2" Report

Okay,

I have been back a week now and had time to digest the events of last weekend.  I had a great time, lots of bad luck, and scored some real bargains from Forge World in the process.

My son and I (He took his Dark Eldar) arrived in Nottingham on the friday night about 11pm and were up till 4:30am doing last minute painting and repairs.

I was up again at 6:30am (couldn't sleep) and put finishing touches on my army.  I went with 26 thunderhammers and a force weapon.  The 3 speeders provided long range missle support for a mere 225 pts.  I had alot of trouble securing 26 sets of thunderhammers and stormshields and if not for several bits sites, I would never of made it.



Now I had high hopes for this army, and in all fairness, it is a spam list to take advantage of the recent update to the Dark Angels.  With a total of 16 Krak shots each turn, it was not exactly a push over.  And 2+/3+(i) saves are pretty good too.  We arrived late (I blame the son, he's a lightweight when it comes to sleep deprivation) and had about 15 mins to have a look around before registration started and tables assigned.

For my first battle, I was pitted against a beautiful Imperial Fists army belonging to Kevin Chin, a GW artist responsible for work in the Dark Eldar and Ogre Kingdoms codex's.  Here is a link to a pic... Warhammer World on Facebook!

In the coming days, I'll post some battle reports and more lovely pics....

Cheers and Happy Hunting!
