My first league game

It has been quite some time since I last had a game. Work issues, that's all I can say. Yesterday I played my first Legio league game against Faizal, my ex-high school friend that shared the same hobby as I do, and I almost got TA-ed. However, I enjoyed the game a lot as it has been quite some time since I last saw my boys in action. Damn, I've forgotten just how wonderful to see all those miniatures that I painted myself in action, very satisfactory I dare say. It started fine, but due to some poor target selection, deployment decisions, plus forgetting how bad Doom Sirens could be against marines (and really bad dice rolls throughout the whole game), the game quickly turned against me starting at turn 2.

That, and the fact that there are two Land Raiders staring on me from the other side of the board. In the end, as I stated above, I almost got annihilated. Here are some pics of the battle between Faizal's Slaanesh-

influenced Iron Warriors and the marines of my Raven Guard shadow chapter, the Falcon Reavers. Currently looking forward for another league game, maybe if I could find time from my work, I'd like a game with Arzmi's Blood Angels and his brother's Eldarkin. Hope I can drop by at Legio next friday. By the way, this battle took place at Comics Mart.

Some more Fast Attack options.

This TIE-phoon module Land Speeder was initially used only for combat patrol (400-500 pts) games only. But since 5th ed upgraded its weapon options, lately I've been using it a bit more frequent.

This is actually the first assault squad that I had completed two years ago, used to play them as veteran assault marines due to the "Blessed be the Warriors" trait. You may notice that they aren't highlighted. Fluffwise, the Raven Guard are stealthy marines that strike from the shadows. Taking that fact into consideration, thus the dull stealthy power-armours ala the B52 stealth bomber. Subsequently, the creation of Hoth's Raiders that I posted previously.

Up to this moment, you're only seeing Fast Attack options (and 1 dreadnought) for my army. You've probably been wondering what I'm actually using as HQ and Troops, the two vital slots for a Warhammer 40K game. Trust me, they'll make an appearance soon. It's just a matter of time on when will they decide to emerge from the shadows ;)
