Late Feb meeting

Big night but I did not get around for the usual array of photos. Thus only a couple to grace the page.
A big 40 K game, necrons vs 2 marine and a Tau force. Using the old rules still as only the lads know how to play them as many of us oldies don't have the new rules yet. Necrons lost but destroyed a lot of the enemies forces. The ability to ally is not new but it is nice when you only have 10 models or 500 points or so and would like a game. You can join with others!

Ahh space hulk! I got to play in this one.
 I played the original way back when but alas had not had the chance to use the shiny new version, manily because I did not buy it and it rarely arrives at the club to use. We had a new chap turn up and as he has not really gamed much before but has 40K models we roped him into a game using the Space Hulk set another playerbrought. This would be just the thing to convert him. Sadly new chum lost, and I won. Now I know that this is not how one gains new bodies for the club and yet by the end of the game he was happy to leave with a smile on his face even after losing and so we hope to see him next time.

I do feel that these are some of the nicest models in quality that GW have produced and I really feel miffed that I did not have the cash to buy it at the time. I see it on fleaBay but at $300 a pop I am unlikely to purchase.
