Fallout 3
fomorianfleet
Dear Elder Lyons,

While the valour of you men in the face of danger is undeniable, I feel that their training is lacking somewhat in the self-preservation department.  Powered battle armour cannot protect against all threats, least of all if your men persist in charging directly in front of me while I am engaged in an exchange of ideas(and by ideas, I mean weapons fire) with Enclave troops.  They also show an appalling lack of judgment where grenades and missiles are concerned, and I swear if one of them leaps in front of my rifle and charges in guns a-blazing while I'm trying to line up a shot with a sniper rifle, I will start killing them myself.


Yours in mind-melting frustration,
 
The Lone Wanderer

Victory!
fomorianfleet
Against a relatively new player who needed to refer to his codex a lot, in a game time in which I had some advantage.

Annihilation.  He had more kill points to give up than I did.

Coraline

Good movie.  Not earth-shatteringly good, but good enough I'll actually buy a copy and recommend it to friends.

Slow in places, but such is the way of movies based on books that do not wish to leave the audience wondering what in Cthulhu's name is going on.

A draw
fomorianfleet
Played against IGs.

I brought a tyrant with guard, a flying melee tyrant, a gun carnifex, and a melee carnifex, with a side of genestealers and a small order of termegants.

I did not bring enough troops.

Artemis Eternal

I don't know if the movie will be good.

I think that it will be, as there seems to be a great deal of creativity and enthusiasm on-board, but I don't know.  I will say that if it does prove to be a good movie, then Hollywood will be officially out of excuses for the cavalcade of big-budget mediocrity it offers up each year.

Another match lost.
fomorianfleet
However, it was still what the Tyrannic hordes would consider a moral victory.

Battle Report
fomorianfleet
First non-loss since the new rulebook.  Given that it was my third game since the change, that's not too bad.

Played against Marines, thousand-point armies.  There was a ruined building near the middle of my edge, another on the far right corner.  Couple craters on the left side of the board, bit of swamp on the right.

Further Tyrant Tinkering
fomorianfleet
Did a bit more work on the Tyrant.  Trimmed away some untidy Greenstuff, made his head crest, gave him a neck, so that his head would fit on properly, with the crest in place.  Have not glued it on yet, but will be using the Spore Cyst Carnifex backplate to represent Toxic Miasma.

Armouring the Hermit Carnifex, and a new Tyrant takes shape
fomorianfleet
Trying out some new putty.  Picked it up at a Comex Hobby shop, most of the writing on it is in kanji(By which I mean characters that look Japanese or Chinese to me, although since I don't understand any of them, I could easily be wrong about that).  It's hite when mixed, and one of the components is also white, which makes it harder to tell if it's mixed properly than with Green Stuff.  I think I like the texture of the GW stuff, but this white stuff has its uses.

Still more work on the Hermit Carnifex
fomorianfleet
I'm intending to make two of these things.    I assembled the Space Marine that came in the Rhino sprues.  There are only enough parts to make him down to about the knees, as he's meant to mount atop the vehicle, as the gunner.  Fortunately, for my purposes, that's enough.Read more...Collapse )
