Good morning readers! A short update on goings-on from the past fortnight. Last weekend Mark and I played a game of Stardust: Ground, my company-level sci-fi game. This battle featured blatant GW-lifted Space Marines fighting against the Robot Army who are a far cry from their GW corollary.
Once the sun came out though, things turned into a real blood and silicon-bath. Initially, the Marines took an massive beating and things were looking very grim, but then I was able to get a couple units into close-combat with the Robot troops.
The close combat didn't go quite as well as I'd hoped but it was rather disruptive and broke up the 'Bots attack quite nicely as they were forced to move, hide and otherwise get themselves into a worse position.
The last shot of the game... a Marine Dreadnought's cannon rips into a RepairBot's back armor.
It was a bloody, closely-fought affair that we both really enjoyed.
In other news, I ordered this beauty last week:
It showed up in short order and I got in a first game last evening with Ziggy.
