On a cool Virginia evening, 40k gunslinger Nick Rose rolled into town from Texas looking for a scrapping.


The battle that ensued was over relatively fast, as once you get to a certain point with these armies the end result can be forecast with a bit of certainty.
It was of course a good playtest for Nick (below) who is already rethinking the list, and perhaps his turn strategy as well.

For me, it was a painful refresher lesson on how deadly the centurions really are once in range. It also reinforced the tenet of correct magnitude and application (direction) of force that can go a long way to slaying “fearsome” units on the tabletop.
This time I did introduce our lists on video, but I’ve also tried to collect them below for you as well. These are pretty much proxy armies so it’s not a whole lot to look at yet, but hopefully soon my Taudar will be 100% complete and Nick will have some shiny yellow Space Marines!
