Welcome to the 11th Legion, join us as we record the progress of building our armies.
The 11th Legion currently has four active posters based in Leeds (U.K.) although we are hoping to grow and get the other members of our local gaming group involved. We will be detailing the progress of building and painting of our armies/projects. We have started recording our battle reports now check our Youtube channel for that, Also have a few tutorials on there too.
This one is a bit of a mixed bag, as I've also been incredibly busy these last few weeks. Like Deathbringa, I also attended the Yorkshire open heats, using my Knights Sanguine. Unfortunately, I didn't have a decent camera, though I am pleased to report / boast (delete as applicable) that my army won the best painted award.
My first game was a draw against Chaos Space Marines, while the second was a defeat at the hands of those sneaky Eldar. My final game ended in victory against Tau - by quite a large margin - consolation for having been completely wiped out in the previous game. I will be attending the finals at the end of this month.
Then, before the bolters had even had a chance to cool, it was off to Warhammer World the following weekend for the Doubles Tournament. I had attended this event last year, and was pleased to see a much greater variety of non-marine armies this time. I was teamed up with a friend who was using Grey Knights.
We won our first game vs Imperial Guard / Grey Knights, before having a very tightly fought draw against a Dark Eldar army (the best game of the weekend, in my opinion). It was all downhill from that point onwards however, as we lost our 3 remaining games to Eldar/Dark Eldar, Orks, and Blood Angels/Space Wolves. Oh well... better luck next time I suppose!
I'll throw in the fact that our 11th Legion team almost won the pub quiz in Bugmans on Saturday night (winners had 1pt more).
When I arrived home, this chap was waiting for me.
This is the first Finecast model I've owned, and though I'd heard many opinions on the quality both good and bad I have to say I have no complaints so far!
So here he is, ready for the painting table. Time to break out the yellow...
