At the weekend we had another try at 40k this time using one of the the malstrom of war scenarios so we could have a try at using the tactical objective cards and upped the points of our armies to 2000. This was maybe a little ambitious as we had only just reached turn five when our time ran out,(still forgetting a lot of rules in the codex of the armies) however at this stage of the game my blood Angels had amassed a decent lead in objective points and my dads chaos marines would probably have struggled to over take this amount. In this particular game the cards drawn favoured myself as the objectives happened to be in my deployment zone. The high light for my blood Angels was the destruction of the Defiler who became the centre of attention when I drew a card gaining victory points for destroying a model of 10 wounds or more as pretty much my entire army targeted the said model, in particular the devastor squad lascannon proved very effective causing 12 of the defillers wounds. Again it was a fun game and definetly the game play has improved massively since we last played warhammer 40k a number of years ago.

This weekend should see my dad fielding a death guard (DG) force in full so I'm currently having a read of the DG codex to prepare myself for the game, some scary stuff indeed coming my way 😱
