XLIX – ESCA m3

Yet another month of Escalation is due. The Tyranids are still going strong, and with a new wind of inspiration is seen in the shift from Space Pups to Fish’Eads. The Necrons though are grinding to a halt. The Green army is threatening to turn into a different green colour…

The Space Pups got lost during warp travel (or shaved) and from their ashes the fish’eadz rose. 400 points of Fish’eads turned into a Riptide (*ouch*), and a Hammerhead.  This month added 12 Firewarriors succesfully, and the Fish’ead faced some Eldar trickery, for a total of 4 points.

Personal note: One of my favorite things with the new Codex: Orks is the opening fold – artwork of da Boyz bashing in some Fish’ead ‘eads! *hur, hur*

Tyranids started working on their first big gribbly. Taking a long road of madness, magnets and size he (or is it the Mothership?) took the strategical route and decided to split up work on a tervigon for two consequtive months. Between magnetizing, building and two games – four points were collected.

The Harbingers of Repentance added a long character that had been glaring on the desk for a while – Seraphicus. The project was successfull. Furhter, the new edition was started with a suitable odd Maelstrom of War battle royale style for four points.

Chaplains are for me the most iconic individuals of the space marines. Standing with black armour at the front line reciting liturgies of hate. So, awesome. 🙂 The Seraphicus mini had been staring at me on the desk for a long time, and I was already getting a bit tired of painting all the bikes so it was nice with a little break. Now, its left to see what hue of green that will be finished this month. 😮

The Necrons attempted to take on the second half of the gargantuan project, but failed again. One point was earned for a game against the Tyranids. *Perhaps, taking on them in smaller munches would have been better after all. ;P * Jokes aside, Necrons are now the largest army (check updated pics for last month). Also, check out the last post updated with Necron pictures,

The escalation table now looks like this:

Army Bui Pai Bas Mag Con Play Tot Army size
Tyranids 3 2 2 2 0 5 13 420
Harbingers of Repentance 3 2 2 0 0 4 11 666

Necrons 2 0 0 0 0 3 5 800?
