I had a game of Epic today. My Ministorum army vs Chris's Experimental Black Templar army he is developing.

I had

Cannoness leading 4Celestians, in 2 Repressors ,a Priest, an Immolator and a Hunter.
Palantine leading 4 Dominions in 2 Repressors
Palantine leading 8 Sistersin 3 Repressors, hunter, Priest.
Proctor leading 6 Arbitors in 3 Rhinos
Proctor leading 6 Arbitors in 3 Rhinos
Proctor leading 6 Shock Squads in 3 Repressors
5 Black Marias, Hunter
Lieutenant leading 9 Planetary Guard Squads in 5 Chimeras
3 Basilisks
2 Squadrons of 2 Avenger Strike Fighters.

The enemy had a Drop assault based strike force
A Lander, Deathstrike Drop Pod formation, 3 formations of Tactical and Neophite troops dropped in 5 Storm Ravens. One had a Dreadnought. 2 Squadrons of Fighter planes, a Spaceship, 2 formations of troops dropped in drop pods.

He set his spaceship to assault me on turn 2 so I could not put all my forces on Overwatch when he planetfell and unloaded his forces before engaging my troops.

I had a rough time outnumbered where he struck, but through a series of manoeuvres that allowed me to bring my forces to bear in numbers, some good saves and rolls for Faithful, as well as some bad rolls by him to hit me, I was able to even things up. We both lost our Supreme Commanders, however I had enough forces to deny objectives and take his BTS and another objective, while denying him some of mine (including my Blitz).

It was a bloody battle, as I lost the Basilisks, the shock troops, an arbitors Patrol, the Dominions, the Black Marias, and my Celestines with Cannoness. He lost his Deathstrikes drop pods, 2 of his storm raven dropped formations, a drop pod dropped assault formation, and half his aircraft. Many of his remaining formations were mauled badly, but he had enough to make me worry. I also had a couple formations left that could have broken if he concentrated on them.

This army had a balanced composition, and enough AA to make him worry about his assault forced being shot down.

The list lacked ranged artillery, and Titan killing weapons.

I have upgraded the Sister/Ministorum list to version 1.2.2

I hope you enjoy the list. I think if these changes are OK with everyone, then this is the list I will put forward for trialling and testing.

Looks fun Deb, damn lot of options but still looks fun for games.

Avengers look crazy good with 4 SS shots each. Merchandised retinues or AA guns will hate them :D but see how they go in games. Id try and have some games for you but Ive got Death Watch and the Grey Knights on my plate atm.

Patient engines back to normal armour is probably a good move. The new building objective is cool too.

Keen to see some battle reports. And pictures. :D

Glad you like the list Norto. I am having problems with the new photohosting website - postimage.org/postimage.cc because they have a problem with the registry, and newer photos are unable to be linked, and you can not actually add new photos. or link to existing photos in posts now.

I am now looking for a very inexpensive and especially ad free photo hosting site that does not involve Google, (as I do not have or want a google account). I want to avoid Flickr and Photoshop where you have to pay anywhere from $100 to $400 a year to link to your photos.

I have painted quite a few more minis for my Ministorum army since my last post update a while ago, and will soon have more minis for my Eldar armies and may even complete one of them. I just got in 6 of the Vanguard proxies for Penitent Engines, as well as a host of minis for my Dark Mechanicum army and building from a few of the different ranges on the website.

Add to this the need to relocate somewhere else locally as the new owners want to move into the apartment, and I have a lot on my plate right now. Sorry to hear about Heavy Bolter. I hope I have a bit more success with MOAB this year. I have 3 sponsors lined up for it.

I will continue to play test the new army, but since Chris a local gamer is the only regular play against, my list of opponents is limited. Hopefully I can get in games against AMTL, Knights, his Black Templars, marines, his Eldar (or perhaps my Iyanden if he wants to use them), or his new Vraksian Renegades army.

I never get to play against other armies like Tau or Necrons. Pity, however I will design a 3000 point list to use as the Bye army for people to face off against at MOAB.

I hope to see you at MOAB if you can make it. If I get the place I am looking to rent, it will be a 3 bedroom house, and should be able to put people coming to MOAB up in one of the bedrooms.

Deb
