Hey deb,

Thanks for letting me know.

Could you text or call me next time that you can not make it. I had already left for the post office and shopping before going to the Hall of Heroes, so never got to read your post.

Thankfully a mate from work came over to the Hall and I played an intro game against him trying to teach him the basics. He thought it was a bit overwhelming and complicated, but he did like the strategy of it, and liked the painted armies. He is on a tight budget, so could never collect an army himself. He said he might come and watch a few games now and then, but would probably not get into it himself.

The game against him was OK, but was still a training game, so does not count for play testing the Ministorum list. We used Ork Speed Freaks vs my Ministorum list.

I found that you need to keep the sisters, and their allies near each other, use the Hunters to keep enemy AC away, and gang up in concentrated engagements, as their fire power is really limited in range, and effectiveness, except for the Exorcists and the Black Marias. I got off Faithful rolls about 6 times over 3 rounds, and 1 formation that broke did not get wiped out because they were fearless from the Faithful test.

I did lose the Guardian angel from the combined fire power of 3 Ork formations, but their numbers meant that he controlled one of the important objectives and denied me another during turns 1. However I counter assaulted in turn 2 and broke them all in a combined assault. This however weaken my Guardian Angel, who was then bombed by 3 successive waves of enemy fighter bombers. The Titan killed off 2 bombers, but the blast markers alone broke it, and then it could not use its AA and he killed it off.

Hopefully you can make it next time.

Also I talked to another guy who regularly plays 40K Orks, and he said he had a new (well paying) job, and was looking to save up to start an Epic army. I recommended Orks. Perhaps he will become a regular player of Epic at the Hall.

if he's genuinely interested i'm happy to print up a beginner set (for starters) for him... provided there are models in chosen faction available (plus real life pans out, re pm). i won't paint it though smile.gif

I will not be able to be there for the next Epic gaming day at the HoH. I am moving house to a new place nearby in Leumeah, and will be relocating the entire weekend.

Cool thing is, that it is into a 3 bedroom house, and I will have heaps of room to play Epic at home.

I thought I would let you know now, so you do not have any surprises, and turn up at the HoH and wonder where I am.

Deb

Next Epic day is 8th July. I hope to have another person turn up George, and perhaps try to get a few of the newcomers to get in some practice games before Castle Assault and MOAB.

c-town epic day: next weekend, 12th aug

i should be available at this point in time.

for those playing in Castle Assault the following week i'm happy to run a standard deployment army (as opposed to my recent experiments) for your practice pleasure; probably knights or titans. alternately i could run vraks or eldar if preferred.... loath to play marines 'regular' now but happy to field whatever would be helpful to you. let me know in advance if you want something specific so i can bring the right box.

won't be making it to CA myself as i have a conflicting family event (the date conflicts, not the family... though add a few beers and that may change).

@ocelot: i have some thunderbolts for you.
@deb: i have order markers for those new guys. not sure if you've spoken to them since last time.

I will be running an army I have not taken to any tournaments before. Not saying what it is incase others going get an idea of what army I will be using is. Recommend Vraks, Titans, and lastly eldar if ypu have them. I sort of know how to handle marines now. If they include Warlords, that might be a little problem, but I know how to handle drop assault and standard marine land based armies. Imperial Fists with their defences might be a little surprise.

One of the new guys George should be there. The other guy I think - Dave, might not be there. Both have space marine of various flavours. I hope to convince them to sign up for Castle assault if they can make it.
