Tau VS Eldar, or how I got my ass kicked

Well I fought my first battle with the Eldar vs Tau yesterday and learned a few things.
1) I don’t know how to play Eldar.
2) I always forget my jink/holo saves.
3) Hammer and anvil sucks ass, especially when you have only two vehicles.
4) Fighting three to four Riptides is ridicules.
5) 2 fights and I lost both, first battle, Hammer and anvil I was tabled. and another a Tau mission also lost due to points but I least I got to kill some things. Pictures after the jump.
"Hey Phil, I'm not going to make any saves this battle, how about you?"

Dexcon 16 – Still a great place to play.


Hey Chaos Cultists,
Sorry for the delay but I’ve been back from Dexcon for about three days now.  With all the gaming it took a long time to recuperate.  I did play 90 % of the games I wanted to play, I did some different things this time out including a Battlestar Galactic LARP and the $1000 Live Action Space Marine tournament, but I will talk about those later.  The main games I wanted to play in were the Warhammer 40K Arena Apocalypse  battles.   The first was being “everybody VS the Orks!”  Literally 100,000 points of Orks VS the world,   I of course brought my Chaos Horde including three Titans and a ton of vehicles.  My Allies were mostly Imperial and Eldar forces, included in the battle were some cool VDR vehicles and two Capitol Imperialis Super heavies.  Here are the pics

I also fought in the “King of the Hill Battle” which I won and “Man VS Machine” where I had the pleasure of destroying many Titans.  The Battlestar Galactic LARP was very fun, I’m not a real LARP person, but I love Battlestar Galactic so I wanted to give it a try.

The $1000 Live Action Space Marine tournament was a ton of fun, a real life scale 40K game with Bolters and scenery, dice rolls made by electronics in the Bolters and armor saves being made that way as well.  My Team, the Emperor’s Irregulars came in second, so close.  Over all it was a great time I can’t wait for next year!
