Greydragoon's Tau ventured out again today into sector manhattan. This month, much like last, they ran into the newly made Eldar of Jcress. This time Rippy the Riptide was joined by Zippy the Riptide as well as a reinforced cadre as new recruits sign up. Jcress' forces were well aware of their plans though and sought to stop the space socialists from their goals. But with ion accelerators firing Obamacare, was there ever any doubt?! :orcsslobber:

Actually the tau were very hard pressed, the first match was a genuine bloodbath that would have ended very differently if the markerlight-scour rules were different. And in the second match the grudge played out until the last round with the warp storms ceasing hostilities at a close 5-4 kill point victory.

Two of the more fun games of the season thus far, all compliments to Jcress!

7/11: Three more games with Rippy and Zippy. ViewtoanInterview drove it all the way to turn 5 with his eldar but The tau were able to, thanks to a Riptide finally breaking across the lines to his objective, secure a 1-0 win.

Next Adrian.. Aaron? Will double check. His eldar played for kill points and despite some incredibly bold moves with warp spiders and taking Zippy down, the tau were able to pull out a 6-4 win. We also learned Dire Avengers do NOT like heights when 3 fell to their doom when disembarking off a Wave Serpant that wrecked on the top of a ruin.

Finally a quick match against Vanguard's new Imperial Fists troops. Was a bloody affair but the fists came away with new intel and will likely come back stronger next time. Win via concede.

Game 1: 1-0 Greydragoon v Jcress - win for the greater space pope on a rope
Game 2: 5-4 Greydragoon v Jcress - win for the greater space pope on a rope
Game 3: 1-0 Greydragoon v ViewtoInterview - win for the Tau
Game 4: 6-4 Greydragoon v Aaron - win for the Tau
Game 5: tabled/concede Greydragoon v Vanguard - win for the Tau
Game 6: 2-1 Greydragoon v Truculent Gentleman - win for the Tau
Game 7: tabled/concede Greydragoon v Wickernipper - loss for the Tau

Total Record for July: 6-1-0

If anyone needs to tell you how bad it is, ask Jcress. He'll tell you :orc thumb:

Deadhead Space (?Your Face?) Marine Chapter of Dark Angels Space (?Your Face?) Marines Workingman's Dead Librarian Codicer "Casey Jones" reporting from escalation on Strategicus Compleatus in Manhattan Segmentum... Dated 7/18/40,013... "Regret loss of Target one 'fuel dump' to enemy units warping into ruins 1/2 click E of our position.. Targets 2-3 'missile cache/'Dead Tape Archive' denied by overwhelming numbers of yellow fleshed daemonic wolf- beasts... objective 4 "Box of Rain" narrowly held by "Phil Zone's" Workingman's Dead squad against a sea of Yellow Horrors supported by a gigantic crablike daemon-machine abomination. Overwhelming Chaos numbers encountered around all targets. Hostilities subsided at dusk... But the Daemon construct has only been slowed by Phil's WD squad's meltagun & the Yellow fleshed beasts around our other objectives have absorbed tremendous amounts of heavy weapons & bolter fire without showing any signs of slowing!... Casualties include entire "Uncle John's Band" squad, 1/2 of the "Fat Man's" Workingman's Dead Devastators & most of "Phil Zone's" tac squad. Dusk imposed standoff is tenuous. More losses imminent. Request immediate medevac & authorization for orbital terminatus bombardment! End transmission.

Short version - Deadhead Dark Angels Dawn of War/Objectives 1-1 draw on 7/18/13 vs Dave's (Vomitorium?)Yellow-Horrific Daemon Incursion...
