Happy Nurgly Halloween…
It seems even my Halloween celebrations have been taken over by Nurgle. This was my costume at the weekend!
I met up with Bull on Sunday and we had our first game of 6th Edition 40k. My fledgling Plague Marines marched towards a Dark Angels gunline for 3 turns. One unit refused to die, shrugging off an enormous amount of shots before finally falling. The second Plague Marine unit died quite cheaply in comparison. The Terminators, who were poised to Deep Strike, scattered off the table without inflicting a single hit. The Hellbrute spent the entire time out of range of anything and on the one turn he was in range of a skimmer with his Multimelta he rolled a 1 to hit! Not the best start for the army – we managed to to kill one DA marine and a Razorback – but walking across a featureless table against an old codex army full of heavy weapons was always going to end this way. We didn't actually get to practice any close combat or morale checks, etc.
However, we have booked a proper game in for later in November – 1500 points – and the list building has begun!
Big army update post midweek!!
