So for today’s battle report, it’s the waaghhh versus the crazy space marines (Blood Angels). We rolled for table quarter’s deployment and capture and control. The Orks placed there’s cunningly in the same building as the Lootas (at least it was until the end), and the Blood Angels also placed there’s in the building they occupied (good thinking that it was a scoring unit).

Before the Orks could even march there way towards the Blood Angel corner, out of nowhere, fell a drop pod that landed right in front of the Stormboyz and behind the kanz line. Out came a death company dreadnought, which then wasted the Deff Dread before it had a chance to turn around.

With a target right in front of them, the lootas got excited and unloaded on the drop pod, which exploded in a spectacular fashion, which took out a couple of storm boyz (I bet they were whooping in joy to see an explosion that close anyway). A squadron of kanz then turned to menace the dreadnought with their kustom mega-blastas and turned it into scrap and didn’t even get into close combat (much to there dismay).

The space marine reserves showed up and split into two teams to each try and dominate the terrain. One group went towards the storm boyz, while the other headed for the objective. The storm ravens unloaded a group of death company psychos and another crazy dreadnought. This dreadnought preceded to eat the group of 20 boyz in one round of combat!?!?!?!?
 The Orks got some revenge the next turn in Close combat by completely surrounding the jump marines and walking away with only losing 1 boy (he was the runt anyway). The kanz then moved on the dreadnought to test their mettle against and walked away while only losing one of their group.

The librarian dreadnought decided to face the warboss head on by jumping directly in front of his trukk. The warboss decided to meet this challenge with his group of nobz and big mek and crushed the librarian dread. He then realized that there was a lot of guns aimed at his direction and made for the ruins before they could unload on him. 

Well they all decided to unload on him. Every marine saw the warboss threat and took action, two storm ravens, a squad of marines, and the crazy ones took their shots (which is a boatload of very accurate shots) and then the crazy guys moved in and took the kill in close combat.

The deff coptas had gone for the Blood Angels objective and was able to take out the marines guarding it, but sadly didn’t know what to do with it afterwards and just spent the rest of the game buzzing around. The storm boyz had headed there just in case there were more heads to crack, but got there too late and then got shot up by a storm raven for their trouble.

The rest of the turns where grinding assaults on the kanz and a group of marines moving towards the Ork objective. They were able to take out all but one of the lootas, who in an amazingly non-orky way didn’t run for the hills, in the end the Blood Angels where able to take the Ork objective and win the day 2-0

Flames Of War At Hobby Town Westminster

So Flames of War. Like most of you I have heard of it but never really got the models in my hands or looked at the rules before.  So the guys down at battle front miniatures gave me there Starter set to build and paint and see what it is all about. So I thought I would go through it with you all step by step.  

 So the Set comes with 5 tanks in a pretty durable thick plastic. There is a good amount of options on each tank for customization so you can make all five of them look pretty unique. You get two German Stug G's and three American M4A1 Sherman's 

 Both the Rule book and the Intro guide are Full color. The rule book is the full edition of the game that you would get if you bought the 3rd ed hard back. Un-like Games workshop and Warmachine this is the full book just smaller. So none of the fluff is cut from it. ( Although there really is not a hole lot of that in this book anyways.) 
I have noted a problem with the book in that the pages fall out of it fairly easy. So be careful with it. 

 All five tanks went together pretty good with out that much clean up needed. and maybe took 30 min in all. 
 So this was my first go at painting anything in the 15mm area. I have to be honest I did not spend that much time on them. Pretty much base coat and a wash with a little bit of detailing. Like adding the Stars on the Sherman's and the Iron Crosses on the Stug's but from start to finish I maybe spent 2 hours and 30 min from open to painted. And the results are pretty good. 

I have not gotten a Chance to play yet but I have flipped through the rules and it seems pretty cool. 
I will post up a quick report of a demo game once I get the chance to play it. 
All in all though I have to say I give this starter set top marks. Considering that its less then $40 for the starter set.

It is starting at 500 points and will grow by 500 points every 3 weeks. Ending on the 12th week. You must have the standard force org for every point jump. So at least one HQ and 2 Troop Choices. We will keep track of painting and building scores as well as battle points. There will be a leader report board. At the end of the league we will give out a number of prizes Including best general, most painted, best spot, best painted and a few other things. All the participation in the grow league is free just show up and play!

On the 13th week we will have a open tournament that will be four rounds long on Saturday starting at 10:30.

Round two 1000pts
Round three 1500pts
and round four will be at 2000pts.

There will be prizes for First Second and Third as well as Players choice best painted army and Judges choice best painted army.

Entry Fee will Be 15 dollars for the tournament and that will go towards Prizes for both Saturday and Sunday.

Sunday will have a Apocalypse game. Everyone brings a 2000point apoc force org list to play with and any Formations/ super heavy they want. We will set those aside and then do a count after all the players show up before the game starts and then balance out the super heavy's so that both teams are even. There will more then likely be a Door Prize for this game as well of some kind so you should Play both Saturday and Sunday.

Organizers Are Matt Eischen And Edward Morlan.

Sorry this post is a bit late as we are already in our third week. BUT I wanted to make sure this got on the main page for those that are still looking to come for the tournament or the league proper.  I look forward to seeing some of you there!
