Played in November 2010 at the Chorley wargames club (CACK)
Some of the pictures I took - great days gaming.
Pics of the event and other peoples armies
Some of the tables and gamers
A lovely Tyranid army
Marines - sorry that one was a bit fuzzy
Tanks of the Legion of the Damned
One of the CACK members armies, still WIP Blood Angels
Pics of my games (I was using Tyranids but I am afraid that most of the big models just have enough paint on to classify as painted. I would like to take my time and paint these guys right).
1st game against a Space Wolf army - yes they are Space Wolves looks impressive but was a total failure, I lost all my army except one model!
2nd game vs Chaos Marines
It all went terribly wrong for the Chaos forces. Advancing against Tyranids is not a wise move. The nids rampaged through the enemy tanks and then cheerfully took out the infanty - cos thats what Nids do.
Third and final game against another Space Wolf army. I only had a limited number of my army on the table. The big monsters relying on the Venomthropes to give them a cover save. No easy targets there. The rest of the army was coming on from reserve with a lot of them Deep Striking.
Lictor and Raveners arrive behind the Wolves, they were all wiped out.
But my army advances on the right
and this is what I was facing, a wall of tanks
