I mentioned in a previous post that I've been playing a lot of City Fight with a lot of different armies - and just having a blast! Naturally I took way too many pictures, but rather than let them get lost in other content I decided to drop a summary of...
...Brent's Losing Streak! *key creepy music*
|Ah, Brotherhood Fangs overlooking the field... what could go wrong?|
|Bjorn the Fell Claw, the Ever-Ready Brotherhood Dreadnought, leads a strike force against the Necrons...|
|...and promptly gets swarmed by Scarabs! Ultimately, the bugs only managed to drop Bjorn's armor by one point... but how important a point! Huge difference between 13 and 12, 10 and 9!|
|The C'Tan Shard's Writhing Worldscape really hampered movement. It's hard to get where you need to go when you risk disaster in every movement phase.|
|Ah, a really expensive unit led by a Mini-Lord... I'll shoot it and drop them all! 'Cept the Mini-Lord is added through the Court, so they're not really gone - and three of them stand back up. Doh!|

|Here I'm playing Sam I Am's Orks, and it started well enough. I blocked his avenue of attack and put a hurt on him.|
|Then he started blowing stuff up. Uh, oh!|
|Bjorn the Fell-Claw to the rescue!|
|Then he gets rammed. He Death and Glory strikes, but only rolls a 2. Not sure that was equal to 2d6 Str Really High hits from a giant rolling pin.|
|I need to take what?|

|Ah, Dark Eldar! I played a Dread Stomp with a Mini-Rock in Raider for Counter Assaults as needed. This was the high point of my game. He fails his assault on the Raider...|
|...and I toast a bunch of Wytches! No save for you! HA HA HA!|
|Then he starts blowing stuff up - like my Land Raider. Is that a Talos? Say goodbye.|

|Wow! It's Big Whit, Everybody's Brother From Another Mother! Man but do I miss this dude - he's been out dating 20-year olds... not sure why he's been missing 40K for that. He's busted out his Necrons...|
|...but he got his Warriors and Immortals entirely too close. I assault charge with the Mini-Rock, splitting the Master of the Forge away from the Vanguard and double charging the units... seeing them both off!|
|Necrons - not so hot in close combat - with the exception of some units, like Wraiths. These held up two Dreadnoughts for most of the game.|
Which I think is really funny. Him? Not so much.
He should microwave them.
I played one more game with Marines before making the switch to the Bugs!...
*To Be Continued*
