      I keep saying he’s not worth his points…

        he works if he can stay out of sight from most of the enemy army.

          Sure. But also consider that he had 0 effect on the outcome of the game (outside of soaking 1 round’s worth of shooting from 2 riptides) and Chaos lost on turn five but won on turn 6. I think 350 points spent differently would have ensured that Chaos was winning turn 5 AND turn 6 (and even turn 7). 350 Points = LasCannon Havocs, many more Obliterators, or even a couple of units of plague marines (or noise marines) unlocked as troops, or any of a number of other things that will actually make a contribution to the success/failure of the mission.

          We’ve had two (three?) examples of belakor going down early–without making a significant impact–and chaos losing. Now we have an example of belakor going down and chaos eking out a win because the game went to turn 6. Replay the same opponents (their lists) & missions with those points spent elsewhere… Would be nice to see.

    Congrats Frankie for breaking out of your slump.

    In my experiences & observations, be’lakor usually never survives. Usually, he’s an even more prioritized target than fate weaver!

      Helps if you don’t put him in the middle of the board outside of cover on turn 2 when most of the other dude’s shooting is still alive. Just sayin!

    So how much does a full table of terrain cost?

      It varies depending on what you want, but our lowest price option is $200.

        Who did the LVO Warmachine table with all the Malaysian boobie statues and what did they use?

          We didn’t make that one, actually. Our Warmachine TO, Tyson did. Check him out at Firgurepainters.com

    Nice BatRep.

    Can we see Orks vs SkyBlight Tyranids before the new Ork Codex drops and then a rematch after the new Codex? 🙂
