September is looking to be a busy month for wargaming! Had 3 games set up for last week, so getting a bit behind on reports. So I decided to do them all at once as a triple feature, more games more fun right!
First up a quick report for a 40k game from last Wednesday. 1500 points, we did the combat patrol scenario. The Marines got to bring most of their stuff and had a force on the left by the forest, and a tank and some hell blasters on the right.
I had my main force hiding behind a rock and brought in some wraithguard to kill the tank, and some other stuff to fight off the hell blasters who strayed a bit close to the edge.
Measuring some death.
Marines are picking me off bit by bit with long ranged shooting, but we are still pretty close at this point with a couple units killed each side.
The wraithguard are sent to fight off a a few units.
Advancing up the middle through the ruins.
In the end the Marines killed off almost everything to secure the victory.

On Friday I played a game of ADG with Duncan, Trying out some of my WAr of the Roses guys against his Aztecs! New army time, we are thinking about playing in the tournament for this at fall in so good to try out a few games.
I mostly stayed back by my artillery and bows planning to get some good shooting going, but the Aztecs raced in.
Things get real close and personal real fast, the Aztecs it turns out have a bunch of spear atlatals so it kind of went both ways. Also they have allot more guys then me.
Things went alright for me, especially on the right fank where my foot knights were beating up some mediocre troops. But I was loosing stands here and there and ended up with almost everything disordered, so I reached my break point first. The Aztecs took a re4asonable amount of losses thou so not super embarrassing showing!
On to game 3! On Sunday I went over to Good Duncan's to play a zombie game with him and Stan. Fun times.
Once again we are fighting for supplies in the rural shopping center. Stan has some bad guys on the Left corner in a fenced off quarter of the gas station. Duncan has Rick on a horse up by the store, and my heroes on the left.
Everyone spreads out and goes for the supplies, I am being a bit cautious as I don't really want to fight either of the guys, they have lots of guns, or horses.
I am doing pretty good on collecting, and got to set a fire so I started a forest fire which blocked off Stans route to get to me. So things are going pretty smooth.
Then a bunch of zombies show up! Here they jump Carl and really put a hurt on him, but his lucky hat saves, the day for now! Lucky Rick is on a horse so pretty fast to come save the day.
I had to fight off a bunch on my side as well, including diablo in the red dress!
There she is crap.
Then things got really funny as an event Duncan controlled had a mega herd of zombies show up right by Stan, and I got to pick where they went, so they all jumped on some poor guy and ate him up real fast.
Well with things going that bad it wasn't long before the threat got real high and we had 2 turns to escape. Which went alright really, a few of Ricks family members got eaten, but I managed to escape with everyone and 4 loots, so I was the winner! I think Duncan had 3 and Stan 2 or something like that. Rick really stuffed his pockets.
So there you go 3 games! Another painting update should be coming up soon also, I have been busy painting lots of lord of the rings guys!
