Firstly, a bit on my Warhammer for the past few months. I've played exactly two games, both against High Elves. The first was against Ben Leopold, and a few weeks back so I can't really remember the specifics. Yesterday, I played against Nick Gentile's Masters' list (2400 Points). He had two big units of White Lions, a Silverhelm bus with heavily armored BSB and General and a bunch of ranged stuff. I had what was in my Rockhammer list, less a unit of Night Goblins and the Goblin Great Shaman.
Our chaff just underwent mutual annihilation, which just left our blocks facing off. I had more blocks, and the trolls really stood up (perhaps unfairly so) to the High Elf charge. After counter-charges, I was able to walk away with a big win. My first ever Masters' win!
There is also a lot of talk of Firestorm Armada at Hampton at the moment. I played some Dystopian Wars a while back, but that's fallen off the radar. However, people are now getting into Firestorm Armada V2.0. I've always liked the look of the Dindrenzi ships, but since there has never been much interest in another space combat game, I never perused it. People are playing now, so I may have a look. Sadly, Spartan Games apparent philosophy of heavily undercut GW seems to be gone, so the game isnt' quite as cheap as it used to be. However, the models are now a lot bigger and more
detailed, so it may be OK. That, and a fleet is still a hell of a lot cheaper than a Warhammer Army!
