Painted Miniatures By Jarrett Lee
Well, after years of painting GW products I officially had my first learner game of 40k today with a friend at work. He was teaching me to play - he was Ultras and I of course had my orks.
It was very fun - we did run out of time (had just over an hour to play) at 1000 points but it was certainly going his way
Things I learned:
- needs LOTs of dice
- Marines are tough as nails to hurt!
- Ork shooting is not to be underestimated. Lootas in particular are totally awesome.
- Battlewagon = very good
- Trukk was disappointing (immobilized by a dreadnought before it even moved)
I managed to blow away his dreadnought and kill a few guys in CC. Meanwhile, he wiped out my shoota boyz and lootas. What was cool was my Battlewagon survived 2 missiles and 2 lascannon shots (most missed I think).
Of course, I'm needing more games to really get the hang of it, but I'm already thinking "what are my next 500-750 points?"
