From the Tables... 6th Edition Fun

Scarabs eat up fortifications. Here my Scarabs reduced the bastions armour to 3 and then breached it.

I played against the nasty Eldar/Dark Eldar ally deathstar unit. It was as strong as advertised, with two 2++ re-rollable guys up front soaking wounds. It didn't help that when I did make a flanking maneuver on the unit with a pair of Doom Scythes, my opponent passed 20/22 4++ saves (from Veil of Tears and assisted by Fortune). That squad laid waste to most of my army.

The final victory point margin of the battle mentioned above, I got First Blood...

Tesla is awesome for Overwatch. That is all. 

The crazy Hammer and Anvil deployment...

It's been a lot of fun so far, how is 6th going for everyone else?

Ive been having a ton of fun with 6th so far. It took a couple games to the hang of it but a lot of the rules are just intuitive and lend themselves to awesome moments that make for memorable games. I'm completely sold.

so far only played blood angels, i'm 1 and 3. waiting to get my new spyders and wraiths in the mail before i play necrons again (sold my old ones). won my first against kingsley's eldar/dark eldar, lost my second against chris's dark eldar, then lost twice against rob's 1500 pt fateweaver demon army with thousand sons allies, pretty strong stuff.

love the new mission types and just about everything else. only slightly concerned about cheesy allies combos and that noone will play a pure army anymore.

yeah, I have been loving the missions, too. I'm 2-2 so far, wins against IG and IG w/ BA allies, losses to DEldar and Sisters, all 2000 points. I think that pure armies will beecome thing of the past.
