Well, I've acually got back to the gaming club over the last month - in its FANTASTIC NEW PREMISES! It's huge and friendly and fantastic...and I've played two games there.
Firstly, a 2000pt clash against Chaos Space Marines. I took a fluffy mech list, for fun (always for fun!) and got absolutely tonked by a nice fellow called Mark. Seriously: it was probably my worst game ever - practically everything I did was almost comically poorly thought-through. It was really good fun and though I absolutely deserved the loss, Mark was gracious in victory.[Image: GW]
This week the Cadian 24th had their first encounter with the Dark Eldar. Jay's 1750pt tournament force went up against my infantry company - 1750pts of basic guard infantry is a lot of infantry, although the only heavy weapons I had were 3 mortar squads, two autocannon squads and one missile squad. Essentially, it was my standard inf company plus legionnaires, Marbo and a dismounted psyker squad.[Image: GW]
Again, it was a great game, but this time it went better for me. For the loss of not even a quarter of my force poor Jay's Spikey Death Elves were outnumbered and slaughtered to a man [elf]. One thing surprised me - how good DE shooting is! I thought they were all about the close assault. It was a huge eye-opener for me to play a new and utterly unknown foe, and Jay's always a superb opponent. His models died gloriously and it was a great learning curve.
Thanks for the games, chaps.
