Mission: Paranoia

Last Thursday night was our first playtest of one of many Gotthammer missions we've been lucky to get ahold of!

After a quick setup of the gameboard, we proceeded to battle!!

The Terra Knight's arrayed and proceed into the Hulk, ready to sacrifice themselves getting to the lower level, and slaying the Magus there!  It's presence caused the Marine player to possibly re-roll their CP draw, which made for a interesting game change.

The marines proceed to make their way thru the first level, with only the lose of one marine.

After reaching the 2nd level, the marines are lulled into a sense of ease as they see the entrance to the 3rd level, and their objective, directly in front of them....But enemies close from all sides, making their progress slow to say the least.

Progress is slow, and 3 more marines fall to the claws of the genestealers!  The sole survivor, the squads Sargent, makes a final run to leave the deathtrap that is the 2nd level...

The Sarg makes a desperate run to his objective, taunting him, but a minion takes him out in a final attack.  The marines made a heroic attempt, but the objective was denied.  

A very enjoyable mission.  All the players commented on it's enjoyability and compact design, taking a little over a hour to run.  A def. thumbs up to Gotthammer on a well designed mission, and we look forward to another of his missions this coming Thursday!

Soul Drinkers Terminator Squad Commision

Here's the squad of Soul Drinkers I've painted up for a friend of mine.  It's also a demonstration of my super awesome craft skills with my homemade photo box If you think that's bad, you should have seen the first one!)

I took a bit of artistic license on the color scheme, but I think they didn't come out  too bad.  I would have de-angeled them, but I figured what the heck.

Knowledge is Power

Welp, last week we ran the 'Bringer of Sorrow' campaign mission 'Knowledge is Power'

The Terra Knights and Space Wolves made a valiant stand against the hordes of Genestealers, but in the end, the mighty had fallen to the swift claws of the Tyranids.  BTW, if anyone is interested in the player made missions shown in any of my posts, send me a email and I'll send ya a copy (These were all hosted on Board Game Geeks before the wrath of GW struck)
