Time for a big Update. There are a lot of Figures still needing painting/touch up but I have the marjority of the cadre done. I even decided to change my Urban color scheme to a Farsight Enclave.
Shas'o with Bodyguard and Die Shield Drones (I had forgot all my drone back at home for this game so I proxied them)
WIP Counts as Shadowsun:
WIP Ethereal + Aun Shi:
Out of all my 5 Fire Warrior Squads Yellow Squad has always done work and managed to dish out major damage, while Orange has done squat until yesterday's battle more on that later, and Red squad never making a debut on the field.
Piranha (Drones WIP):
10,000 pts of Tau (My and my friends)+ the Enemies Custom Titan:
Now back to the story about Orange squad. Yesterday my friends and I did a 5000pts battle Tau and Chaos vs Dark Eldar and Chaos. It was a Dawn of War deployment and Annihilation. It ended in a tie but it was a major slugfest and brutal battle with 21 killpoints earned per side. I estimated that we each had less than 1000 points when the game ended with at least 1 troop choice each. I had 2 troops left blue squad and orange squad. Blue did decent for it's debut on the field and the dies showed their fear and lack of combat. Orange squad on the other hand killed 3 reavers by rapid fire, lost 5 to reavers flying over in return. When a squad of 3 Bloodbrides charged orange I had 7, lost 2 to power weapon attacks, and out of 4 regular wounds dealt from the bloodbrides only one died. The remaining 4 swung their rifle finishing the Blood Brides only to loose 2 warriors to Splinter Cannon fired as they dived behind the Hammerhead gunship (It had no Turret so I was using it's Burst cannons as Squad support) So at the end of the game I had 2 survivors to tell the tale. Those two are being promoted to Shas'ui and being given a steal suit.
Slugfest Survivors: 1x Fireknife Crisis Suit Team, 2x 5 men Pathfinder Teams, 1x Hammerhead no Rail Cannon, 2 warriors from Orange Squad and 7 warriors from Blue squad
I had one from yellow squad that survived so many shots to only be brought down by splinter cannon fire. I had 6 wounds to save and this is exactly what I had rolled 6,6,6,2,2,2 If he had survived that he would have been put into a stealth suit as well that has not been painted. heck even put into Shadow's suns stealth suit.
