Cloud gets beat by a girl

Since BoLS just posted about wargaming women or the lack thereof, I figured its time to post these pics.Ive had them sitting around for almost a year now that I think about it.
This is Cloud and Zephri's first game of 40k. Cloud ran a Chaos lord in terminator armor and a power weapon, a demon prince, a csm squad, a Khorne berserker squad, and thousand sons.
Zephri ran a Necron Lord with Veil and Res orb, a destroyer lord, two 10 man warrior squads, wraiths, and destroyers.
Its been about a year so I cant remember the details all too clearly but Cloud totally got owned. It was Pitched battle with 3 objectives. The Chaos lord and CSM squad sat on one objective in the manufactorium the whole game and didn't move out of cover till the end. Zephri had a warrior squad in the golden building on the opposite corner and the 3rd objective was in a crater across form the manufactorium. The wraiths got owned from early shooting. Clouds Khorne Berserkers spent 4 turns trying to move through the trees to assault the gold building and when they finally got out the necron lord ported over with a warrior squad, rapid fired, and wiped them out. Destroyers picked apart the thousand sons and the demon prince at range, with the Destroyer lord swooping in to finish it in close combat. In the final turns the terminator lord tried in vain to go after the crater objective but the normal Necron Lord and his squad ported back to screen and claim the objective. Zephri ended up winning 2-1. She lost about 5 or 6 units total. Cloud on the other hand lost about 15 or so. Cloud hasn't come back to play ever since he got beat by a girl. Hopefully all this mocking will get him back this week!

Turn 1 movement.

Cloud laughs it off as his forces fail him yet again.

Zephri gloats as she rolls a bazillion 6's for gauss weapons once more!

Cloud is smug as he thinks hes about to get a revenge kill!

Onlooker Rob is excited about this game!

She may have crushed him in 40k, but he can still crush her in real life!

On a completely different note, tomorrow starts our new Planetary Empires campaign / tournament. Look for video battle reports and other details to start to pop up later this week. TQ was throwing around the idea of having a live video feed going while we play so maybe that will happen as well.


  1. You've found the rare and allusive female gamer... Quick, capture her. :P

    Does she still play?

  2. Oh mans I'm so excited! It's like being a famous 40k player and a porn star at the same time! Paul certainly knows how to use good marketing strategies, posting about me on websites and whatnot to generate his own interweb fame. :)

    Yes I still play, still Necrons, of course. I enter (and win) a lot of mini painting contests as well. Maybe Paul will start selling tickets to see me at Gamesday this year.

  3. Hmm...
    where is this located?

  5. Most of us live in the South Jersey / Philly area. We usually get together once a month for a dedicated day of gaming and have a couple weeknights through the month where we have community painting / small game time.

  6. To the South Jersey/Philly crew: I have a small gaming group in North Jersey. Non of us are tourny players but we throw dice like we pump fists, hard. J/k on the fist pumping. Do I smell a summer tourny?

  7. No wai. Cross blogger comment tourney set ups sounds like win to me! Somewhere I read a post that there was an outside tourney during the summer and I recently discovered a small park near me with a pretty large pavilion that begged to have 40k games played on it. Should there be enough interest I'd gladly try to make it happen.

  8. Any chance of the bat-reps going up on YouTube so I can watch em on my iPhone?
