Traveling Game

by Chambers


So the wife,the kid and I are all packing up and headed to Indy in a week. While it will be good to see everybody and catch up, lets be honest I am really looking forward to pushing some little plastic men around a table and rolling dice. I am even more exited since this will be the first time that I get to try out my shinny new Lust-Wing army.

A few weeks back I was offered the opportunity to pick up Ron's (of FTW fame; http://fromthewarp.blogspot.com/) Lust Wing Army, one that I jumped at. While Ron had originally painted and assembled the army to use the DA codex a similar force can be constructed using the new sw codex. Which is what I ended up deciding on, While I agree with the majority of the posters out there in the tubes, the better force probably comes from the DA list, I keep going back to the fact that the SW dex allows me to take the army in six man squads.

What I did to make the army visually mesh from five units to four is to split up the PreHeresy terminators off on to the other squads to act as the Aspiring Champions for the individual squads. This leaves me with the two IC's, a big bad man with a double headed ax and Beial. SO while The PreHeresy captain gets to be Logan and, Beial with his sword-staff get's bumped down to a rune priest.

As this is my first time at a go with the army I am just hopping that I don't embarrass my self too badly.
And as always C&C is welcome and appreciated.

  2. Thanks
    My current plan to insure the win is to post that I have won before Farmpunk gets to post what ever the truth might be...

    Honestly I am just looking forward to a couple of good games and a few more good beers.
