Tale of an Epic Gamer - July Goal Achieved

Another month of the Tale of an Epic Gamer is under my belt.  I worked on adding more models to my Orks this month.  I've added more Bad Moons as well as a unit of Goff vehicles to mix things up a bit.

Here is a group of Goff vehicles.  There is a mix of models, but they will all be used as Gut Rippas for my NetEpic Gold army,

Another block of Ork Boyz

12 dreadnoughts ready for battle.  Mostly plastic models, but there are a few metal models mixed in.

Nobz ready to lead the boyz.

This months additions.

NetEpic Gold
Bad Moon Clan Company Card - 4 Nobz, 15 Boyz - 600 points
Goff Gutrippa Squadron - 3 Gutrippas - 100 points
Goff Gutrippa Squadron - 3 Gutrippas - 100 points
Goff Gutrippa Squadron - 3 Gutrippas - 100 points
Goff Gutrippa Squadron - 3 Gutrippas - 100 points
Goff Gutrippa Squadron - 3 Gutrippas - 100 points
Onslaughter Dreadnought Mob - 4 Dreadnoughts - 200 points
Onslaughter Dreadnought Mob - 4 Dreadnoughts - 200 points
Onslaughter Dreadnought Mob - 4 Dreadnoughts - 200 points

Bad Moon Big Warband - 4 Nobz, 12 Boyz, (I have no Grotz for this unit) - 350 points
   + 12 Dreadnoughts - 420 points
Bad Moon Huge Blitz Brigade - 12 Gunwagons - 350 points
   +3 Gunwagons - 105 points

Not bad progress.  I've got a few too many support units (using NetEpic Gold) so when I get back to the Orks I'm going to have to double up on the company card units.  I'm thinking another unit of infantry and a Speed Freak Company.  Those should be fun.  I can't wait.

Next month will be either Imperial Guard or Tyranids.  Both should be fun.  If I go with the Guard I will be doing a block of Beastmen and some more Leman Russes.  If I go with the Tyranids, I will be doing lots of genestealers and a swarm of Carnifexes.  

What would you like to see next?

G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T. in Randistan 7-3-15

Bill was good enough to set up a game for our group.  We are in the jungles of the last land of Randistan.  This place has been untouched by modern hands and has a variety of beasts that had been thought extinct.  In addition, there are a few creatures that live here that have never been seen anywhere else in the world before.

The beautiful table that the battle will take place upon.
The Temple and grounds

The bridge over the river

A ruined building that currently houses the War Apes
The idol in the temple
Stegadon with a spear thrower mounted on its back
The Queens own Randistanian Rifles
The steam powered walker
The British forces
Advancing to the bridge
"Do you really want me to cross that?"
"We made it safely, come on over."

A new toy to check fields of view.
The treasure hunters come out of the brush line.
The apes move up to meet the invaders
Once across the bridge, the Brits for a firing line.
The walkers steams right over the river

Cavemen attack the apes.

The Brits marvel at the Cavemen and Apemen attacking each other.

The apemen are losing the fight against the cavemen.
These apes advance toward the treasure hunters.

This beast is pretty much the only thing that can hope to damage the walker.
The apemen charge into the gunfire of the treasure hunters.
Here comes the walker.
Another group of apemen swarm out of the temple grounds.

Raptors come out of the jungle, but they are controlled by the apemen's leaders.

That cat is a beast.  Pun intended.

The raptors attack the treasure hunters and score some kills before they are wiped out.
The Cavemen's shaman summons an unnatural fog.
A wandering dino to far from the action to have much impact.

The War Apes head toward the action.

The second unit across the bridge forms into a firing line.
Leading from the rear.  Typical British command.

The stegadon moved up to the wall in hopes of getting some cover from the walker's machine gun.

These apes couldn't stand up to the hail of fire.

A great group of guys to game with.

The cavemen finishing off the last of this group of apes.

These apes are charging the walker, but have almost no chance of hurting it.

The porters are on the bridge and don't want to cross any further.
The war apes have almost made it into the fray.

Another wandering dino that is upset by the interruption to its grazing.
Cavemen heading over the temple wall.
The war apes are getting beaten by the British rifles.

The leaders of the apes stay hidden in the shadows of the temple.
The stegadon's crew have been killed but it is still a vicious beast.

The treasure hunters approach the temple ready to take any loot they can find.

Thanks again Bill for putting this together and thanks to my fellow players for their efforts in the game as well.  It was a great time; even though the apes failed to hold off the invaders.
