This was the start of a month long build. And at last I have managed to get some pics of the finished article. So for your viewing pleasure.

Have I used it? no :(

Every time I have played with it, it always been on the wrong side. :o

I can tell you though, it is a very tough nut to crack!;)

You know you do have a point there mate, A big "U" would not go amiss.:D

@Heph. thanks mate, I'll get those pics cranking as soon as we finish the rest of the build and start playing.:rolleyes:

Rep, rep, rep, rep. I love it. A thing of beauty. Only Ultrmarines are allowed on this sacred, scared ground, commodore. :)

It kind of reminds me of starship troopers where they're shooting the aliens trying to get over the walls and into the camp.

The Commodore

Yes but my walls aren't made of toothpiks and tin foil. :D

Well you asked for it..., so here they are. Played our first test game on the new table (bear in mind that the build is not yet complete, so the scenery leaves a little to be desired).

Looks pretty cool mate. Enjoyable game?

The Commodore

Yeah it was ok. The pods did not perform any where near as well as I had hoped. Still good learning experiance.

Nice one commodore. That is most certainly list worthy. I love terrain. Especially really big and cool terrain. That looks like it must take up half the board.

Good idea to drop the tactical marines into that small space. If you wanted to be nasty you could have put locator beacons on both of them and have assault termies and vanguards deepstriking onto them. ;)

Some rep just because...

Very cool, I love it. Do the gates open or are they fixed? Rep as well!

Um yeah, it kinda does.:D

Those were Sterngaurd, and by the end of the game they were down to two live bodies. Apothocary had loads to do that day!:D

Looking great!

What went wrong with the pods? (why didn't they work so well?)

I was under the impression that i could assault out of them, apparently I was wrong. Hence my guys had to weather a lot of las fire before they could do anything of real value.

I thought that the Vanguard could atleast assault out of the pod, but I couldn't find a rule to support my claim in the codex. And as I have never used them before, I am a real novice.

Vanguard can definately assault same turn after deepstriking with jetpacks (their special rule)... But not from pods... I think... Which does mean they have to weather fire for a turn...

Yes this is what I came up with as well. Next time I won't be so quick to put them in harms way so fast.:D
