A Day at the Adventure's Guild of Riverside

Today was a nice battle between the Legions of Nekheny and the Iron Skull chapter of Space Marines.  I was lucky enough to destroy my friend's 750 point list.  Deadmeat will load up battle report pictures on his page as he had the camera, but a little of what went on until his report.  Set up was pitched battle, seize ground, four objectives.  The battlefield was four feet by four feet as we were only playing 750 point lists.  Deadmeat's wife set up a nice city terrain, with only a few areas for his long range weapons to come into play, score one for the Necrons.  I set up as if I was going for the objectives, but truely decided to run everything up the middle and try to kill every last marine on the board.  This worked extremely well, and in the end of turn seven, he had only three marines of one combat squad standing on  a contested objective.  Technically it was a draw as no one claimed an objective and I could not kill every last man on this team, but it was close and a good time.  Hopefully next meet up we will have 1000 point armies to play with and I can see what that Monolith I got in the mail can do.

Monolith in the mail.

I finally saved up enough allowance (yes I have an allowance) and ordered a Monolith from MacPac51 on Ebay (so far the best place I have found to buy GW models).  This will give me what I need to assemble my first 2500 point army that I posted on earlier.

As far as an update on my challenge to have my 750 point army painted for September 12th, I have not done a single thing on it thanks to the RL.  I have been slowly cleaning up my Destroyer though, a few minutes here and there, almost ready for assembly.  At least I have a three day weekend coming up this weekend so I should be able to finish painting the 750 then.  But wish me luck, the RL has gotten every busy as I have started escrow on a new home.
