Some Saturday Games and Where my Stuff Came From

Hello everyone. Its been a long while since I've posted, so I'm very sorry in that regard.

First up is some pics of a few games I have played these past two Saturdays.

This first match, was 2v2, with a shared 2k points limit.  I was with Soloman's Traitor IG and had brought my own. We were fighting against two tourney marine players from Raleigh that stop by from time to time. They were playing Wolves, and the GK's.  

Some memorable moments were, the 40 man squad ripping apart a Dreadknight in CC, having a freshly recycled squad of conscripts mow down 5 paladins, by scoring 18 wounds! (PEW PEW PEW). And, all of us agreed that the truly titanic clash mid field between the wolf tactical squads and the traitor armored platoon (pic below) was codex worthy.
The game ends in a draw with six kill points per side.

that was 2 Saturdays ago. Oh and my Orcs also scored a Massacre against a Dwarf army. no pics though :(

On to this weekend!

As you will find out the Executioners have grown in size exponentially. Sporting 7 Drop Pods, and 20 Assault Marines, in addition to the half company I have already gotten for painting peoples things.

I decided to play a test game against Landon's Necrons, (the very army i painted for all my marine infantry, pods are from Chris. THANKS CHRIS !)

Game was 1250, Capture and Control, Spearhead,

What i found was that the list has a difficult time dealing with armor. Which i have since remedied.

the most memorable moment, for me at least was my Gabriel Seth/Honor Guard/Chaplain unit charging an 18 man warrior squad with a lord, and completely massacring the whole unit.
Sadly it just wasn't enough and the scarabs and Tesla took a heavy toll on my infantry who were unable to get a single melta hit. Proving yet again that it is the single most inaccurate weapon in the Imperium.

Lastly, I played a 1500 point Fantasy game against Empire. Fantasy appears to have finally taken off around here, which i am very happy about.  My O&G did not fare nearly as well as their last game, and suffered a lot of casualties and failed animosity rolls.  For the most part i lost this game b/c of my unfamiliarity with the army. The goblin hordes (2 of them) will certainly be within 1 foot of both the general and the BSB from now on.

The question was posed this Saturday about how a high school student can have all these armies and mini's. Which set me about to thinking about the origins of all my current armies and units. 

The Pilgrims of Rust- The result of 7 years of hobby collecting. around 100 infantry were acquired for less than 60 dollars, plus the old 20 man cadian boxes. 

The Knights of Decay-  The majority are from Chris actually, in a long ago trade of IG, Orks, and the 5th Ed starter, that resulted in my getting 1500 points of CSM randomly. but i was very pleased with it. 

Burnagob's Infernoz Tribe (O&G) -  You would be suprised the number of people who don't want the Battle for Skull Pass goblins.... 30 dollars for the 3rd ed Orc units, and 60 something for the giant, and a sizeable number of other things. 

Craftworld Vol-Yor:  You saw that project. It was from Christmas money.

Executioners 4th Company:  Completely Free. -except for time-

Eisenhorn Conclave-  15mm is much cheaper than 28mm, possibly around 45 $ spent for all infantry, tanks gained from 2 free FoW sets and Mechwarrior leftovers from DJ Cards and Stuff. 

What about you guys?  where is your stuff from?

  1. Sounds like you had some fun and learned a few things about your armies. There is nothing better than a frugal ganmer. I have been collecting armies since before 1989 and picked up the majority at a discount or second hand. Some of the armies I have I built up over many years before I had enough to field them. The same as you I also took a bunch of models in trade for painting other peoples figures. The best trade for models I have done to date is I traded a Dark Eldar Wych army for an Armourcast Eldar Phantom titan abou ten years ago.

  2. I've never played an Apoc. but i'd still trade for a Titan haha.

    Frugality is certainly helping me out a lot so far, i know that much. All these marines, all these gobbo's... soo mannyyy gobbo's 0_0
