Is This Another Bug Hunt? - Militarum Tempestus vs Tyranids

Warhammer 40k battle report - Narrative - Patrol Mission - 52 points - Militarum Tempestus & Inquisition vs Tyranids.

Great Xenos Oocytes!
It's All-Skype Fight Night!

As the old year lurches wretchedly away into the shadows, we found time for a final excursion into 40K. 'Tis I, Kraken, hosting a battle between my two new proto-armies, with the aid of my trusty accomplice Stylus and our buckets of dice.

Indeed! I, Stylus, will be shaking off my December painter's cramp by rolling some bones!

Still comatose after the excesses of the Julbord, I found myself more than usually unable to do any maths. So we went with Power Levels instead, and played a little narrative battle. Can a well-armed Tempestus Scion squadron see off a minor Tyranid incursion? Find out, as we play Patrol!

The Tally of 2017

And for those of you paying attention, that was 2017. At least Bowie didn't die in this one.

Guys, I just discovered this brand new game ... I think it could be big.

And this is the update to "Project: Micawber", let's all say it together...

"Annual leadpile twenty terminators, annual painting nineteen terminators nineteen marines and a cultist, result: stagnation.
Annual leadpile twenty

Lead and Taxes - Year in Review

Nearly lights out for 2017. Funny, the great Depression back in the 1920s and 30s gave the world superhero comics and weird pulp fiction, possibly because people wanted to shut out the awfulness of the world at the time. Have Trump et al a hand in the current continuation of the Gaming Silver Age?

Short answer - No. They have no hands in anything good.
