Today I got around to skinning the rest of me guard models. I’ve been buying stuff here and there on the web for a long time and they’ve all had rather miserable paintjobs… luckily that’s nothing acetone can’t help with.
Yesterday I had two games of Epic Armageddon at the local games club. First game was with Henrik who hadn’t really played the game before.
I lend him a 3000 pts ork force and took a 3000 pts Adeptus Mechanicus Titan Legions force myself. My army was based on a reaver and a warlord and knights for the rest of the points.
Unfortunantly it didn’t really seem to catch him as I had hoped. The AMTL probaly should have half the credit for this and I the other half… My army simply wasn’t working and he was able to run it all over and win without any trouble. I think he concluded that the same happened last time he played, and that’s just too bad I guess. I’m not really good at explaining and the game is not really easy to show to newcomers if they haven’t read the rules I think. Oh well.
Second game was against Mads who’s also a newcomer to epic. He borrowed a SM force and played against an ork force composed mainly of warbands. I think it was a good game and it ended 3-2 in my favor.. However I’m a bit unsure as to what my opponent thought of it. Appearently he was neither dismissive or thoroughly enjoyed. I think I gotta work on my educational skills. Or make up an easy go scenario to introduce the game. Prices, availability and detail is not really working with right now.
