The St. Laurent Games Workshop store has a Battle Bunker and, with Christmas so close, the mall is open hella late (11 PM). I took advantage of that to get some games in. The first was a Challenge Game (read: cheese-fest) against Bunny Of Doom's Orks (he's also known as James). There's really no way to soften the report on this 1000 pt. Gamme take-and-hold mission: I pummeled the poor guy. He's a good sport and didn't utter a single word of complaint, so he gets points from me for that... but it was a challenge game. I brought my A-game and put him in the pain locker.
The real shame is that a lot of my pics of his army were too blurry to post. Sorry, James :( I'll get more pics next time.
Later I played against Daniel, who is a new 40k fan who is playing Sisters of Battle. We had a 1000 point game of Omega Seek and Destroy, and I didn't bring my A game; instead, I took mainly troops (Dire Avengers, two squads of Guardian Defenders without platforms, and a big Storm Guardian squad), some HQ (two Farseers) and a Heavy (a Wraithlord). I did beat him, but it was a tight game with lots of shooting, lots of hand-to-hand and lots of swinging back and forth. I won by a small margin and it was a lot of fun. My first game against Sisters, too!
