Brent's Losing Streak..!

Yup, I'm on a losing streak!  Exciting stuff, that!

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?
 Click MORE for... well, more...

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!
Bjorn has a dirty little secret... naughty bugger that he is. 

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.

His Destroyers flitted around, doing damage.  They ultimately made the MotF and Vanguards pay for the temerity of pointing out a weakness in the line...  Still, I thought the Destroyer Lord could have been better served serving up Dreadnoughts in Close Combat.
Ulimately, I won the game against Big Whit - but I don't count that.  His dice suffer every time he plays me.

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*

Merry Christmas Brent! Hope you have a wonderful day with your wife, family, friends, minions and/or miniatures. We love you.

SinSynn said...

Merry merry, Brent.
Nice to see you losing to the Xenos.

Holiday hugs and gropings!

Brent said...

Merry Christmas, guys!

And it's going to be a Xenos New Year..!

That should make you happy, Synn. :)

New to the site, really like the scenery, and the close quarter combat. Never actually played a city fight, but looks like it would be a blast, I have always hated the barren tables, the more terrain the better!!

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

Strictly Average: 'cause 6-inches is all you get.

Stalking Jawaballs since 2009.

Jawaballs: "My butt just tightened up."

Brent, preferred 2-to-1 over Not Brent in a recent, scientific poll.

Brent: emptied the Kool Aid and DRINKING YOUR MILKSHAKE with an extra-long straw.

Unicorns don't exist.

Home of the Stormbuster, the Dyson Pattern Storm Raven.

I'm a comment whore and this whore is getting no play.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

"You should stop writing for everyone else and worry about your crappy blog." - Anon.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Dethtron: "Again I feel obliged to remind you that trying to sound smart only works if you are."

MVB: "I am not one to join the unwashed masses of self-titled 40k experts out there distributing advice from their blogs about exactly how your list should be built..."

Shiner Bock on tap: that's how I choose hotels.

Strictly Average: The Home of Hugs and Gropings.

Don't feed the trolls!

MoD: "Welcome to Brent's head."

Competitive is Consistent.

Dethtron: "...you could use that extra time to figure out a way to get your panties unbunched and perform a sandectomy on your vagina."

Dethtron: “When calling someone an idiot, it's generally best to avoid making grammatical mistakes.”

Warboss Stalin: "You know, if it actually WAS funny, maybe I wouldn't mind."

Mike Brandt: "It's not a successful bachelor party if you don't misplace someone".

"The Master Manipulator (every store needs one): "...now, enough stroking."

Kirby: "I don't know about gropings. Seriously, Brent, keep it in the pants, please."

Loquacious: "No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get Hugs & Gropings or Stalks Jawaballs into Brent's little tribute."

Captain Kellen: "I rate this article a Brent on the Faith Hill to Nancy Pelosi scale!"

Drathmere: "Come for the balls, stay for the Brent? Kind of disturbing, man."

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

Isabelle: "So, thank you for supporting your local and not so local unicorns. A noble gesture like that can show some scared kids out there that they don't have to hide from everyone and it's ok to be who they really are."

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Lauby: "Is it left over from that time you thought that you could just complete step one 12 times to meet the mandates of that court order?"

Not Brent: "I guess we'll have to read on and find out. Signed, Not Brent. Especially today."

Cynthia Davis: "I think the scrolling text is from Glen Beck's new book."

Grimaldi: "Spamming certain units creates interesting possibilities but also fatal weaknesses."

Purgatus: "Math can inform decisions. It cannot make decisions."

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

SinSynn: (To Brent) "Curse you and your insidious influence on the internets..."

Dave G (N++): "You know you're an internet celebrity when your following is more akin to tabloids."

I prefer the term Internet Personality (or IP) myself, seeing as how I coined it.

Lauby: "Your attempt to humanize him as failed. I feel nothing but scorn for his beard - it's like a warcrime or something."

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.


I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
