40K League Battle Report: Space Sharks vs. Luigi Marines (Space Wolves)

My most recent league game, this time vs. Landon's Mario Brothers themed Space Wolves.  1500pts, Scouring, Vanguard Strike.

Landon went with a pod- and plasma-heavy force.  Three groups of three Wolf Guard with combi-plasmas, two Grey Hunter squads with twin plasma all in pods, two smaller squads of GH with plasma and WG with combi-plasma on foot and a Wolf Lord on thunderwolf with four more thunderwolves as an escort.  Ouch.

Space Sharks Librarian and terrain

After having left him alone for a number of weeks, I decided that my librarian was done, so went ahead and based/sealed him.

Why I like the new Codex: Space Marines

I really like the new Space Marine codex.  Not because of price drops, or how awesome White Scars tactics are, but because of the inherent play variety it offers.

For me that kind of variety is what makes some books stand head and shoulders above others.  For some books, when you see armies made from them, a lot of similarity in build, and therefore play style, will be evident.  When you face them again and again it can get repetitive.

Sharka Khan?

Yep, another post about those guys

Like many marine players, I've been thinking about my Space Marines in relation to the new codex.  For me, that's mostly my Space Sharks, though until I get around to converting them into more Sharks, I guess it could also apply to my Silver Skulls as well. 

The big conundrum of the day is: which Chapter Tactics to follow?

Terrain chopping - complete!

The sawing up of the city board sections is complete.  One large ruin made from foam I decided to just abandon, and some of the smaller elements that were part of larger pieces I took off of the board, like the crashed flyer.  This still left me with a lot of based terrain pieces.

Creative Destruction - City Board redux

Example section
As mentioned in the previous post, I have been thinking about cutting up my city terrain board for some time.  I like it, and the design gives it a lot of potential variety, but with the change from 25%+ and "set up the board and pick a side" to alternating placement and random amounts it doesn't work as well.  Plus its form makes it a pain to store and is basically impossible to transport without a van or truck, which I don't have.  So, I figured cut it up, make it easier to store and bring out to stores/events as needed.  Recently a friend let me borrow a nice little powered saw and with protective gear for me and sonofsonsoftaurus, we tried out the saw and made a few cuts.

Death Guard Land Raider plus chopping up terrain

Decided to work on the Nurgle Land Raider.  Intentionally messy, but without all the greenstuff fungus and tentacles that many feature.
