Shadow War – Steel Legion WIP

Started painting my kill team for Shadow War: Armageddon a week or two ago. The goal was to get one of these guys into shape for the Science Fiction / Modern painting competition, but I just didn’t sink the time in this month, so my Caledonian Volunteer will be taking on that role. My partially painted kill team *did* see some Shadow War action this past weekend, though. Sergeant Jaeger Hel led Hel’s Half-Acre into Von Stravo Spire on Saturday and faced off against some Tau.

I didn’t take a single picture.

The Tau had a few missions under their belts already, but the previous one had gone south, so I was facing a field-promoted leader. They had a few tricks, but I outranged them by a significant margin and was able to use that to my advantage. My sniper and a lasgun Veteran were able to knock the Tau rail rifles out of commission within the first couple of turns, and the only guy I had go down to enemy fire rolled a 1 in the recovery phase and got back up with a flash wound. My favorite moment in the game was probably when one of my Specialists managed to hit the enemy leader with a krak grenade from his launcher, only to roll a 1 to wound. Lucky guy.

I captured one of the rail-riflemen, and earned 200 monies to spend on recruiting/rearming, so I hired a new guy and kitted him out.

I spent the full 200, so this guy is as ready as he can be for whatever comes his way.

‘Til next time.
