|That's a lot of red...|
On a brighter note, I got my first game of Battlefleet Gothic in a few years today. It was a learning experience for both my opponent and myself. New rules abound:
-Ordnance no longer runs out
-You can measure at any time
-Torpedoes use the same size template regardless of the size of the salvo
There's probably more, but I just can't think of it right now.
In the end it was less of a crushing victory for the Dark Eldar than it initially appeared it would be. His one remaining Idolator class escort just whomped my crippled cruiser and three escorts before it went down. I was not pleased with the lackluster gunnery of my ships' crews either. On multiple occasions one of my Corsair class escorts should have taken out that Idolator, but instead missed, leaving him in a position to fire up my cruisers' tailpipe.
All in all two very enjoyable games against good opponents. That's what this hobby is supposed to be like, and I really need a refresher from time to time. Consider me refreshed.
