Well, this is about half a week after I had intended to get this up, but here it finally is. The Saturday night before last I got my second game of 8th Edition 40K in, this time against Cheef and his Orcs. It was a very close fun game and I'm glad to finally get an edition where the focus was back on having fun rather than trying to remember 30 pages of special rules plus all the army and unit special rules. I'm hoping to get a lot more games of 40K in now. Once I get the BattleTech cleared off the paint desk to make some room, I want to get the Primaris Marines from the starter box assembled and give them a try as well.
Now this won't be a full battle report but rather an overview with pics with my impressions thrown in here and there.
It was at this point that the action really got moving and I forgot to keep taking pictures. It ended up just one point apart and he was close enough to scoring more points that I'm perfectly happy in calling it a draw. It was definitely enjoyable and I'm looking forward to doing it again.
Speaking of the Primaris Marines, I'm still leaning towards a Lion's successor chapter for them and keeping it Primaris only. This means I will NOT be collecting an entire other chapter, just a decent small group of Primaris to use in games. I am currently leaning towards calling them the Lions Rampant or Ghost Lions but I'm willing to entertain ideas if someone has a great one out there.
That's all for now and I'll see you all next time.
