    Archaon does a submarine at Heat 2

    Game 3 vs Chris Lewis: Slaanesh Game 3 is always tough at the end of the day and Knife the Heart was particularly badly timed. My opponent (a third Chris in a row - what are the odds?) was playing Slaanesh - an interesting option. He was pushing MSU to the max with seemingly endless units of Cavalry as well as two 30 Blocks of Daemonettes and a unit of Fiends. He had a regular Keeper of Secrets. Deployment Noting the total lack of shooting against me, I deployed so as to give Chris turn one. I screened Archaon with 10 Maras, thinking he could dent any unit fast enough to hit my line between its first and second pile in. Archaocam Battleround 1 Chris sent one of his 30 Blocks Of Daemonettes along the right board edge. He didn’t advance significantly otherwise. In response, noting it was Knife - I reckoned I had to YOLO it to an extent. I buffed up Archaon and lobbed him into the 3 relatively insignificant units in front of him. I keep most of my summoning pool back other than putting a Gaunt onto the Balewind and a screen of 10 Pinks on my left to protect the other Gaunt Summoner and chaff. The Gaunt proceeded to melt all but 8 of the 30 Daemonettes. Archaon rolled well and smashed up Chris’s front line - I was reliant on his 2+, rerolling one’s and twos against the 30 Block of Daemonettes in a possible Chris double turn. Chris responded by double piling in the Keeper and lobbing in the 30 Daemonettes. Knowing the damage output of the Keeper from using my own one, I was pleased when the Keeper attacked first and did mediocre damage to Archaon. In response Archaon blended 20 Daemonettes. The Keeper went in again, but Archaon shrugged off most of the damage. Elsewhere, the Fiends outflanked the Pinks wisely and smashed into the Marauder Screen around my second Gaunt. My counterpunch was pitiful against the -1 to hit debuff of the Fiends. Battleround 2 Chris won the initiative, his Fiends continued to blend my left flank. Meanwhile his 10 Seekers managed to roll a 12” Run on top of movement 14” and charged into 10 of the Maras guarding the Balewind. The Keeper dented Archaon again before being torn asunder. In response, I summoned the Chicken who started zapping the models on the home objective. I rigged his charge, but his damage was feeble against -1 to hit. The Pinks advanced on Chris’s home objective. I retreated most of my remaining right flank from the Fiends and spread out. Archaon moved down towards the Fiends hoping for an 8” Charge. Lacking the DD, I failed the charge. Chris proceeded to dance his forces about making it hard for me to win the Major. It took a full five turns before the Chicken finally cleaned out the objective and Split Blues supplied the necessary 5 models. 2 Majors where quite a few players would have only gotten a Major and a Minor put me in good shape for day 2. The evening was spent at the quiz in Bugman’s. We weren’t able to continue the run of 2nd and 3rd Place results, but had a sweet time!

    Archaon does a submarine at Heat 2

    Game 2 v Chris Mills: Stormcast Game Two was against another Chris - this time of Battleline Gaming Podcast fame and a seriously good painter, who had won best army previously. He had the Les Martin TM build (with some Hunters for appearance sake - the army looked fantastic) of Stormcast, which suited my list. The Battleplan was Scorched Earth. I made sure Chris knew what Archaon could do with his sword.... Answer: very little with these junk Destiny Dice: 4 sodding twos! Before rolling these Chris plonked down the Drake on one flank on the 12” line. I responded by putting Archaon opposite. The other flank held the 2 Fulminators and the bulk of Chris’s army. Battleround 1 I chose to go first - I summoned on a Herald who fluffed his 3D6 cast of a 9 to leave my left flank vulnerable. I held back with just Spawn lobbed forward. I summoned Pinks into the middle and curved them into the Judicators. They failed their charge. I used what little DD I had to rig the charge in for Archaon and zap dead a Longstrike Raptor. Archaon largely bounced, the Drake chipped off a few wounds. Battleshock claimed another Raptor. I scored 3. Chris elected not to retreat the Stardrake bizarrely. He healed the Drake back a few wounds. His Hunters came in and smashed a Spawn. The Herald died to Judicators. Archaon continued to shed wounds. Chris scored 3 and won the initiative. His Liberators made lengthy charges and smashed up my Marauders on my left. The Fulminators also surged forward menacingly. My left was faltering. The Pinks stood up well thanks to 1s for Battleshock. In response I used the Glimpse spell to get a DD back and it was a 5. Archaon got rebuffed. I summoned another Herald who made up for his brother’s ineptitude by zapping the Fulminstors stone cold dead. The Pinks swarmed the Judicators and began a truly drawn out and inconclusive grind for the middle objective. The moment of truth arose - at the fourth attempt Archaon got his two 5+ to wound (one rigged and one rolled). Chris had his two main threats destroyed in one turn. Battleround 3 Chris won the initiative And kept going - his Liberators burnt my central and left objectives. Conversely his middle objective fell to the Horrors (so I could take it next turn). In response, Archaon munched the two heroes on the far right objective - a close run thing - killed the second one with Vomit. This sealed the major victory for me. Not a classic game truth be told and I get the feeling that Chris hates Tzeentch. We seemed to get on across the table. So 1 Major and 1 Loss after two games.

    London GT hype

    A fair few are coming from the South London Legion. Looks like it will be w great event - glad it’s on the Livestream.
  4. If you're looking for Age of Sigmar, Shadespire, 40K, Bloodbowl, Necromunda, the Hobbit or other games in London, then hitch a ride in a drop pod to the South London Legion any Wednesday afternoon. You can find us here: Croydon Conference Centre 5-9 Surrey Street Croydon Surrey CR0 1RG @sthlondonlegion This week! Various AoS games. SCGT, London GT and @Chris Tomlin‘s Blackout 2018 are on the horizon. New armies are reaching the table! More Necrons and Tau and Tim’s Deathwatch get stronger! Fish puns! Shadespire Last week: A lot of excitement over Idoneth Derpkin (term of affection) - NARWHAL incoming. Last week featured my Sylvaneth Winterleaf plus 40 Arkanauts defeated by Matthew’s Ironjawz; Ben Murphy’s Mixed Order (Phoenix, Vulkites, Arkanauts) defeat Ralph’s Freeguild and Alex Kew’s yet more Arkanauts recoil under the counterpunch of the Daughters of Khaine heroes! Arthur’s Nighthaunt took on Ben’s Stormcast too. This week there will be the usual mixture of 2,000 point games going on. If you have a smaller force, then someone should be happy to give you an introductory or demo game as well. We're thinking about some Narrative play soon after Heat 2 - combo of Silver tower and Malign Portents - perhaps Skirmish games (using the new supplemental rules in that book) and narrative Battleplans. Runedaddy has a go at Derpghar. I finally found uses for that oversized axe and Kairic Acolytes. Bloodbowl Our League has reached a climax with a few key games left to decide the title. I held Rob Bradley’s Skitz Skatz to a 1:1 Draw after deploying the patented Chainsaw plus fouling strategy. More nuance in the game than it sounds. Ben and John drew, so the League is even closer at the top! Bloodbowl is such an amazing game! New players are very welcome! Tom has just joined the fun. Shadespire I played James's SCE last time with Fyreslayers. Good fun! The only way is up for me with my 18 games 14 Losses record. I’m loving the Fyreslayers compared to the Blood Reavers - much more my style. Excited about the new releases coming! Should be a perfect second game to fit around a main game in an evening. Or you can just play 4 games back to back . 40K Tim and Sami played Deathwatch (pre-Codex) vs Necrons. I’ve penned my Thousand Sons plus Emperor’s Children List too. Rob’s keen on the new Knights and I’m hoping Deathwatch make Space Marines more competitive. Craig is leading the way with his Ad Mech - awesome painting! Necromunda Simon Froley is leading the charge and starting a campaign soon. John’s Escher took on Matt’s Orlocks for a second time. Will be going strong this year and the level of support from GW (e.g. Squat Mercenary and Genestealer Cults in White Dwarf). Orlocks look epic. @Thanatos Ares @Leonardas @Bowlzee @Marc Wilson Give me a shout on the forum or post below and I can add you to our AoS WhatsApp chatroom (we broke 100,000 messages recently and counting - I swear fully half of it is John talking about Khorgoraths). The Hobbit New armies are coalescing.
  5. It was with great excitement that 7 Legionaries stormed the battlements of Warhammer World. Ben Raven (Quad Flappies) and James Grant (Kroaknado) had brought the infamous Battle Wagon to stay in.... Rob brought Dronestrike and a pounding hangover from a football game/beerfest the day before. Hugh had Griffon Spam Freeguild. Max had his well painted Nurgle and jumped on the Livestream game one. Tom brought some Mixed Order filth. That leaves Archaon: The List - Archaon Fatesworn After a year of experimentation with Mortal Tzeentch and much contemptuous laughter towards my use of Chariots from Rob, I had integrated Archaon into Fatesworn. The basic idea was that Archaon with Infusion Arcanum was pretty choppy (and autokilled big heroes) and also very tanky with Mystic Shield, Shield of Fate and Eye of Ed Sheeran. I filled the 10 Units in the Battalion with chaff - who also benefit significantly from the rend provided by the Battalion - Maras and Chaos Spawn. Any Daemons Summoner with Command Abilities would also have success to their command abilities - Double Pile in on Archaon or +1 to cast and unbind. An early prototype tanked at Heat One (terrible dice throughout), but the list benefitted from some tweaks particularly the addition of a second Gaunt Summoner for redundancy/more magic. In this form, the list carried me to a first place trophy (and a first ever trophy) at Winter Waagh after a hard fought game vs John’s Khorne (also using a Gaunt). Final tweaks were made by adding a fourth Chaos Spawn to bulk the summoning pool up to 580 (enough to summon the Chicken and the Keeper!). With some reluctance I dropped the Chaos Sorc Lord - even though his rerolls Spell makes Archaon vaguely reliable rather than derptastic, his 160 cost is brutal. Archaon (Infusion) Gaunt (Shield of Fate, Wellspring) Gaunt (Glimpse, Soul Draught) 3 x 10 Maras 4 X 1 Spawn 580 reinforcements pool Wellspring is particularly useful for guaranteeing spells and saving on DD. Typically I would use (say) a 3 DD to cast Mystic Shield - adding one from the Gaunt’s Blot and then rolling the other casting dice and rerolling a 1. If it was a 1 I would usually burn a 2 or another 3. The 9” bubble usually catches Archaon and the other Gaunt. The default summoning option would be the Balewind, Chicken, backed by 10 Pinks splitting into 10 Blues for 570. Game 1: Chris’s Ironjawz - Starstrike Chris had opted to max out his allies choices with 4 Rock Lobbas (which I’d also considered in the past). These posed a major threat to the Gaunt Summoners, which forced me to go first with some reluctance - as against a more melee oriented list I could have played for the double. I deployed Archaon slightly off to the left. Chris’s army was heavy on Ardboyz and Pigs and lacked a cabbage. He cleverly deployed away from Archaon. Battleround 1 Fixating on the bonanza available from sniping off low bravery crew, I made a painful error by miscalculating my summons in turn one. Having brought on the LoC, Herald and Pinks - I lacked the points for the Balewind. This cost me the chance to deplete the Ardboyz before they engaged and to lob in a cheeky Battalion Arcane Bolt. Things got rapidly worse as the LoC failed the Gateway casting roll, which would have threatened the Megaboss. My spells killed one crew outright, but only chipped off the odd crewmen from the others. Archaon went left - my thinking being that he could mop up the low damage Pigs and secure the entire left flank before turning inwards. I advanced a line of Maras, who shielded the punchier Spawns. Shooting failed to kill any more crewmen. I had just enough DD to charge the LoC (fortified with Mystic Shield and Shield of Fate) into the Megaboss. He bounced pitifully - doing 2 wounds. In response, the Megaboss derped his own attacks. All the Battleshock tests were passed and I was in a grim mood already. Chris responded by throwing his Ardboyz forward, advancing the Pigs on my left. Shooting chipped wounds off one of the Gaunts. The Chicken clung on. The Ardboyz split their attacks too thinly so the Pinks survived. The Chicken survived the Megaboss’s attacks and was able to hit back - dropping him to 2 wounds. The Pigs cleared up elsewhere, the Maras melted wholesale. Battleshock returned some Pinks. The comet landed by the left Pigs. Chris won the initiative, which cost me a round of spells with the Chicken. Things went bad to worse. The Ardboyz were delayed by the Pinks, but the Pigs rammed into my centre clearing out the Marauders and a Gaunt Summoner. Chris scored 2 points. My remaining Gaunt Summoner blasted the Ardboyz. Meanwhile Archaon managed to get in combat with both units of Pigs and wiped them both out including Battleshock, which was enough to score back 2 points. The other comets dropped - my one central and Chris’s one in the far right. Chris won the initiative again. This cut off my last chance as Chris mopped up my remnants. A Major loss to start against Ironjawz. Truly grim! With hindsight I should probably have just lobbed in Archaon with the double pile in and outfought/tanked the Ironjawz in the centre. Chris lacked rend other than the Catapults. The failure to allow points for the Balewind had been costly and I wouldn’t allow that to happen again. My club mates had had mixed fortunes. Max had been robbed by the constellations on the livestream - the stars landing on the Toads of the talented painter Adam Elford. Rob had also lost - not helped by his booming hangover. Hugh didn’t start well either. Ben, Tom and James had fared better.
  6. If you're looking for Age of Sigmar, Shadespire, 40K, Bloodbowl, Necromunda, the Hobbit or other games in London, then ride the ethersea down to the South London Legion any Wednesday afternoon. You can find us here: Croydon Conference Centre 5-9 Surrey Street Croydon Surrey CR0 1RG @sthlondonlegion This week! Five AoS games. London GT and @Chris Tomlin‘s Blackout 2018 are on the horizon. New armies are reaching the table! A crucial Bloodbowl game #OrcOff in the League. More Necrons and Tau. Lots of 40K! Fish puns! Shadespire Over the weekend, 7 Legionaries set out to Heat Two. After a shaky/hungover start, we all managed two Wins each; Maxime and Ben got onto the livestream #FlappyMeta; and 4 of us qualified. The competition was solid, so well done everybody. It was great to see @Thanatos Ares cruising to 14th place at his first singles event (after two team events) using his Quad Terrorgeist/Dragon List! Bar Mystical terrain on the livestream - he was tilting for the title. For my part, Archaon shrugged off an embarrassing loss game one to Chris’s well piloted Ironjawz army and put up the periscope! I finished 4th and was also pleased with a solid haul of 5 from soft scores despite playing Tzeentch. Overall a great weekend - the AoS continued the following Wednesday with Arthur’s well painted Arkhan joining the fray against Ben’s Vanguard Chocobos: A lot of excitement over Idoneth Derpkin (term of affection) - NARWHAL incoming. This week there will be the usual mixture of 2,000 point games going on. If you have a smaller force, then someone should be happy to give you an introductory or demo game as well.

We had a sufishient turnout last week with a big win for Ben’s Orcs over Rob’s Magmic Mice (which puts several teams back into contention), several games of AoS (Simon Weakley’s 3 Magma Dragons munched on Ben’s Daughters) and more Necromunda from Matt and John! AoS Heat Two is coming up fast. About 6 of us are going - including Rob, @Thanatos Ares, James and me. Classic Ben face! Magma Dragons munch on Daughters!

    Lets Chat: Idoneth Deepkin

    Amazing models. Given my nickname is Niconarwhal - I'm all in!
  13. Some great games tonight! Thanks guys.
  14. If you're looking for Age of Sigmar, Shadespire, 40K, Bloodbowl, Necromunda or other games in London, then head down to the South London Legion any Wednesday afternoon. You can find us here: Croydon Conference Centre 5-9 Surrey Street Croydon Surrey CR0 1RG @sthlondonlegion AoS Arthur's Death vs Ralph's Griffons and Hurricanum last week! A close game. James’s Seraphon are taking on Arthur's Death this week! Blood Tithe was a big hit - Marc Wilson 's International AoS Team Event - twenty teams in total invading Crawley (near Gatwick) from far and wide. Feedback was awesome. Kudos to Marc for his sterling efforts and I’m pleased that the Legion were able to support him. The Legion’s teams fared well - Kunniest Rukk in 4th after a great display of sportsmanship in requesting a recount that pulled them out of the silverware. John’s Mortal Khorne plus a certain ally... managed 5 Majors! Only The Filthful fought valiantly but the draw and real life issues hampered us. This week there will be the usual mixture of 2,000 point games going on. If you have a smaller force, then someone should be happy to give you an introductory or demo game as well. A lot of excitement over Nurgle and then Death and then boom Morathi! Plenty of new armies are being built/planned. I’ve got plenty of models for all three armies - boom! Last Wednesday Arthur’s Sacrament took on Max’s Nurgle in a close game. Prior to that Simon and John's Winter Waaagh was a real success as a one day event - lots of fun had by all. After Blood Tithe we're thinking about some Malign Portents - perhaps a combination of Skirmish games (using the new supplemental rules in that book) and narrative Battleplans. Then Heat 2 will be upon us. We're also in the early stages of planning #BigBash which will be an all day narrative megabattle between several of our armies - Archaon and 4 Exalted Greater Daemons vs Nagash, Mortarchs and 6 Flappies - what's not to love?

New players are also welcome! Shadespire I'm playing James's SCE today with Fyreslayers. The Shadespire event on the Friday at Blood Tithe was great and I did score a win against a leading French player. The competition was formidable however and I wound up last with my Blood Reavers. The only way is up for me with my 17 games 14 Losses record. I’m loving the Fyreslayers compared to the Blood Reavers - much more my style. Had a great game vs Craig last week: Craig tried out his awesome Google Forms tech to record the game! Should be a perfect second game to fit around a main game in an evening. Or you can just play 4 games back to back . 40K I’m finally playing my first game today - 1,500 Points - Raptors Ad Mech vs Deathwatch. Sami and Josh are playing too! Sami is doing well with the Necrons and pumped for the new Battletome! Ben Raven, Nathan and Simon Weakley seem very excitable about Tyranids! Simon Froley is keen for Tau! Craig is leading the way with his Ad Mech - awesome painting! I’m just going to leave this here: One of the cohort of Bens owns this chap. Necromunda Simon Froley is leading the charge with James hot on his heels. Very exciting game.
