Getting There

Back in January I decided to set myself the goal of assembling and painting 2,500 pts. of White Scar space marines for Warhammer 40k. I’m nowhere close to that at the moment but yesterday I managed to field a 100 Power Points force of assembled models for my first game of 8th Edition and that came to 2,003 pts. Frankly it was a relief to see that I have gotten that far, and many of the models I used were actually over 50% painted (nearly all painted in terms of larger vehicles.) I’m feeling pretty confident that I’ll be able to get the rest finished by the end of the year.

In terms of the battle, I came away with a lucky win. My opponent forgot to field an entire unit of chaos space marines which left me with a nearly 500 pts. advantage and I was able to sweep through most of what he had. That and I had some pretty lucky rolls when it came to Overwatch and 6+ saves. I’ll take the victory though as it was an introductory game for me and I’d no idea what any of my stuff did. Also, in keeping with White Scar fluff, I chose an enemy character as my quarry and managed to successfully eliminate him with my three Land Speeders. For the Emperor and the Khan!
