We had a little gaming day in our club because of the release of the 8th edition of Warhammer 40k this Saturday.
I couldn't attend until later in the evening but I managed to play one game and get a small feeling for this new edition. I will have to try it out a couple of more turn before I can really say anything about it.
As the rules for Death Korps of Krieg isn't released yet I went with the regular for Imperial Guards but choose a rather boring tank formation as not to use the wrong miniatures for the wrong rules.
I think it was called a Spearhead formation and it had a minimum of 1 HQ and 3 Heavy Supports, 1000pts of this I could easily fill with my vehicles.
I would be facing Harlequins, an Eldar faction I never met before let alone in a new set of rules. All I knew is that they would be fast, sneaky and hit hard. My opponent would not let me down on that...
We rolled some dice and a deployment and objectives were decided.
We rolled a dice to see if the gamy would end but it did not, I needed to survive at least one turn more to not be wiped.
In my opponents turn the Eldar charged in again, but my Basilisks survived another turn.
An totally undeserving victory but if its something Imperial Guard is good at it is to take casualties until the enemy gets tired...
Here are some more pictures from other peoples games.
