I managed to get my first game of '08 of AI in today. ?We played at just over 100pts a side

I had 6 Hell blades and a daemocally possessed hell talon.

My opponent had 4 thunderbolts and a double ace Lightning.

We got to about turn 5 when my opponent called it. ?I had downed 2 thunderbolts, damaged a third and the Lightning, and all I had lost was a single blade and 2DC from the talon.

It was my opponents first (and possible last) game of AI, so he was still coming to grips with the guessing what the enemy was going to do, even though he could do it in BFG.

I found that chaos are brutal. ?blades might only have a single hit point, but he shear number you can field makes them sickening. ?I was able to gang up two or three on one on the imperials.

I did play in character. ?We were playing on a board with quite a few level two forests around and I started all my blades on level one at speed 6. ?As well as flying in close formation. ?For the first three turns they also all did the same manouver, but what do you expect from Slaanesh? :D

Sounds cool Rag,

    I like the Hellblades and Talons for AI. They have some great speed to them, and like you said they have the numbers to gang up on your opponent quite easily. I am with Killer, any pics mate?

Sorry boyz.  I didn't take my camera with me, it was just an intro game.

I'll remember next time though.

Several regulars and a staffer asked if I could give them intro games in the next few weeks.

Sounds like a successful evening then, apart from for the poor bloody imperial pilots!

Imperial pilots are like imperial guard.  There to die for their corpse god.

The fun thing for me, was the number of young gamers coming up asking "Is this BFG?"
