|Games Workshop Egyptian Table|
Then I saw these at AdeptiCon........
If you have ever seen them in real life, they are huge. These are 28mm scale. But are too small. The guy is the size or bigger than the head. Where the picture below shows a person to be the size of the beard alone.
|You can see a person in the background.|
The DUST boys had none with them. eBay was like 60 bucks. They kick startered for 25 (in 2014). The lads said I could get one later in the week for 40. They have a bunch of other stuff.
I have this bunch of shit from years ago. All can double for Force on Force, Indiana Jones, Warmaster, and the Sudan (kind of sort of). 20mm gator and a stand of Citizen spear.
|Its a little small for 20mm. Pretty close for 10mm scale wise.|

Epic again. This time Imperial Fists Vs Marines. Dave's marines. I had screwed up and packed the trenches. So IF toys, no trenches. Dave's activation count had me by 3. I deployed poorly. The terrain and my choices limited the available lines of fire. Then his goddam BTS would not die. There is no way those little plastic bastards don't have PSTD and shell shock.

The plan is to stuff the riptides straight down their throats. While the Manta and AX-01 support. Cudas on CAP and everyone else waits for T3.
Objectives, The Blitz will get slung out to one side. While I deploy opposite. Looking for BTS and their Blitz. Take & Hold will be all the way back by their Blitz. **Unless the army is super slow, then every objective is spread out.
Tau 2 - SM 0
Tau 4 - Orks 0
The second game Tau Vs Orks. Eric is a long time Ork player. The Riptides received the focused hate of the Orks.
MantaThe Manta. It had total freedom. (riptides got all the attention.) It was unable to break a single unit. As a bus, suits jumping out erased ork gods and burned others so bad the foam they rested in was toasted.
I took 1st. The plan worked out for once. Mark lights and cross fires every where. The AX-01 performed above avg. MVPs riptides.
I gave up my last game. Dave was TO. He gave 4 demos. 2 of the people had to have eaten paper chips as kids. It sucks when a no show benches you (2 year in a row he failed to show). It sucks to sit around all day long watching everyone play. Fair is Fair.
Eric and Dustin's 3rd game.

20 minutes. Check in was quick and easy. The swag bag had a fake ass blood bowl game, 40K SM, Blood & plunder dude, coupons, BL books, BL calendar, some bases, and chump bullshit bits.
Tau pick up game Vs Dave's SM with predator test. Manta did fuck all nothing. Ghost suits are badass.
Running double Stealth with ghost suit upgrades are way cool. Only thing, they are AVs and move 15, Stealths are INF and move 20. That 5cm difference fucks up movement. AV & INF detachment turns them into a Thunder Bolts favorite meal.
Played in the Warmaster tourney. I got a loaner army. I think Matt was nice enough to loan out his dark elves and build me a list. Chris and Ruthie were my first two opponents. Being my first time out, they taught me the game. (or differences between Hail Caesar)
Cold Ones ran the flanks in a classical style. They are very tough and won the first two games for me in a cavalry true to life performance historically.
Final game was against Dave. Champion for the last 100 years. I double box car both wizards and a hero. The general killed them. My left flank refused to move. The Cold ones took the first two turns off. Dave crushed me proper. There went my chance to dethrone the king.

Ah ha! Here the lads are wearing all blue jumpers.
Naval Brigade 1890s?
Here again, white jumper top and white pants. Officers in all blue or Blue jacket and tan pants. I will have to do some all white jumper dudes. It is near impossible to determine exactly what they
truly wore. I am thinking what they wore was determine by their ship or homeport.
The gun crews are all HAT. (One or two dudes in dixie cups are Newline) The rest are Newline Design.
61 done to date. Goal is 700 this year. 639 to go in 276 days. I need to bang out greater than 2.3 a day.
A lot going on. Mom is watching the kid. She thinks I am working. Work thinks I am off for military training. The wife knows nothing, nothing
Hopefully I will get a loaner army for Warmaster. I am bring Tau. Of course. But testing the Manta and riptides, and ghostkeel loving. Tagging along for the ride will be the Imperial Fists. They need a good dusting off and refresh.
The IFs getting rebased. They were a combination of desert, ruins, super green flock, rubble grey. I went green, really green. Green and yellow are not friends. So I am hoping the Ifs stand out.
