|Five Hexes Jetbikes swoop in.|
On Saturday, I got a 2,000 point game in against an Chaos Space Marine Emperor's Children army. We had to call it at the bottom of turn 3, I lost 2-1 on objectives. The jetbikes scored my victory point, achieving Linebreaker. A longer summary after the break. (Sorry no pictures)
Despite my opponents large amount of Sonic weapons (ignore cover), I thought my force performed pretty well. (Battlescribe File) On turn 1, I reset the table, shifting some of my units upwards of 48" on the table and restricting his targets (my poor Rangers). This resulted in his Land Raider and Demon Prince moving up without direct support provided by his firebase. He was also hampered due to his Storm Eagle never arriving. Overall, I was happy with the maneuverability and satisfied with my army's overall performance. The biggest drawback was a lack of tank-killing ability.
Now for the painting.
I had washed all of the minis last weekend. Yellow for the yellows, blue for the blue, black for the black, and fleshshade for everything else.
