Baal Predator

After my first game of the latest incarnation of Warhammer 40K, I quickly decided I needed some emergency maintenance work on the Ball Predator to remove the Flamestorm and replace it with an Assault Cannon.

The Flamestorm was too unpredictable for me with its D6 attacks, I prefer the guarantee of rolling 2D6 with an Assault Cannon.

I had to carefully score the Flamestorm join and then basically snap it off. When I glue something, it is pretty well glued!

I was able to tidy up the turret fixing and attach the Assault Cannon without too much grief.

I have not glued the Assault Cannon, it is a tight fit, I may be able to repair the Flamestorm and make them interchangeable.

Tanks

One of my intentions is to reduce the number of new games I buy into. But I must say I have failed this week with the purchase of Tanks by Gale Force Nine.
Can’t really complain as I bought it for a good price and I have loads of Flames Of War tanks that may now actually get used for something. I tried it out last week at the famous shed of Mr Steinberg and it is a nice game. Basically it is X-Wing for tanks. I used a platoon of Panzer IV’s and went up against firstly a squadron of Shermans and then a trio of heavy Russian tanks.

I like the game, it is quick, objective driven and you don’t need too much stuff. I’m not sure that some of the expensive commanders are worth the points but I maybe some more games will clear up why they cost so much.
