1850 RTT the realm brea ca

So this weekend was another 1850 RTT. I brought out my bad moon battle wagon list. When I got there the other players all had some major shooting armies. 2 tau, 2 guard, space wolf player, deamon player, another ork player, imperial fist and blood angels.

So 3 rounds round one was objectives 5 of them and at the start of turn 3 on a roll of 5 or 6 they go away. Well in this game I went against grimgobs battle wagon blitz. So I got first turn but he held back everything but his lootas. So after a little loota on loota action and bad rolls his battlewagons join the fight. After a bit of dancing I make a run to smash in and deff roll his wagon. He then rolled one of mine. Well thus kept happening and the orks got stuck in and had a good and proper fight in both sides. But sadly the badmoons could hold all the objectives and we lost.

Round 2 was a mod kill point against tau. Now after looking at the book there are a few things he did that he can't. First was can't take 2 air burst things. Also can't fire 3 weapons from 1 battlesuit. But all in all u had a bad game but we tied and he got the break due to victory points.

Round 3 I went against a nurgle chaos army with a objective mission. 3 objectives and I went first. So turn one I shot up his rhinos. And moved my wagons up. After this I charged smashed in and my nib squad pretty much moped up the rest of the army with out taking any wounds back.

In the end I learned a few things about my orks and how to use them. Also I got a box of common goblins to work on my grot rebels.

Chaos rules question

So at a local tournament a chaos player said that oblits don't have to change weapons every turn.  Now I don't know who told me they do but if I am right then I need to find the rule if I am wrong well that changed alot haha.

I will post some battle reps in the next few days.  I forgot the pictures of all the games and the one good one I would have had well I hit video and now have a 1 sec video.

1850 RTT

Well this weekend will be another 1850 RTT at the Realm in Brea CA.  I am going to bring my orks in a battle wagon spam list.  I wanted to have everything painted by the next one but its a month early and I have been sick as a dog the last 2 weeks.  I will post a full write up of the list and Pictures of the army.  Hopefully I can take pictures of all my games and I can do a good and proper battle report.

Summer of fliers?

Warseer: Summer of flyers? (by Stickmonkey)
Some updates. First, let me apologize for being dark. I have been negotiating a carreer move and it looks like it will happen. More on that down the road. But I am looking for a home in Texas...yee haw, back to the states. To the business at hand, this is what I know. The "summer of flyers" (again, temper this name, it's not much more than spearhead was) article in wd if it happens will be an apoc expansion...not basic game. To include formations, special strategies, etc. About what anyone would expect. The specific plastics for the wave release passed QA. Yeah! And include the following Ig hydra De r-wing Ork copta Nid harpy There may be a few other surprises. It is apoc after all. However, no one seems to be certain if these items will be released together as a wave right now. There is a lot of back and forth as to how best to put them out...flyer related dump, or wait and do army based updates, meaning a ig wave, a de wave, etc. There is strong desire to complete the de models before the next codex release after GK. I don't think it's possible based on where some of the outstanding models are in the process...and what has to be done for that codex. Only so many people to do the work. You can't put 3 women together and get a baby in 3 months, right? No craft world eldar models will be included here. And there is a reason for it, but I can't go into it yet. And no codex on immediate horizon, to keep people from getting excited... Also, the de void flyer will not make a summer debut...its a big model...comparatively, and there are other challenges facing it...but it is coming eventually, hopefully before fall. My information comes direct this time, but the decisions about what and when to release things I am not privy to...wd will already be set in stone by now and so someone(s) already knows what is and isn't happening in this, just not I... Cheers. Hopefully this is more exact information certain individuals want to see. But as always, subject to change.

Well what interest me the most is that ork kopta. I am a bit scared of how many guard armies will now have that damn hydra rolling around. Poor dark eldar.
