"To death you were sent, and forcefully claimed, I return you from whence you came" The syllables caught a little in his throat as Ben spoke, his hands pulling into a flat palmed prayer, to directing the divine energy of Karuma's rebalance towards the cadaverous equine. Bone and rotten flesh at once became engulfed by magical flame, scarcely touching the wood of the cart and surrounding buildings, but each shred of what the creature quickly turning to ash and was carried off by an unfelt wind. No more of the house feel to the ground, not even as the flames removed the legs from under it. The Acolyte of Karuma may have seen some semblance of the animals eyes from when it was alive had he not been holding his nose and turned away from the smell of burning rot.

The goon flinched as the Halfling made his threat. Had he not already been near death from the magical blast to his back, the threat of broken bones and injury may have worked. He felt confident, despite his position. Maybe that was what made his lips loose.
"Hah! You all know nothing of what my Master wishes to achieve." He snared, snapping his teeth at the wand pointed to his face. "Lakenvale is only a lesser part of what Master wishes to achieve!! He!.." The goon cut himself short, a flash of panic through his mind and he realised he had gotten carried away. These adventurers knew nothing, and would be no consequence. But He should not have jeopardised the Master so callously.

"I've heard sweeter melodies from canaries." Aela commented. "Shouldn't we tie him up and take him to the guards, or something?"

"Alright, enough games" Hlaine growled, grabbing his maces and approaching the delivery man. "Unlike my associates, I am not a reasonable person. So here's the deal. Tell us what we want to know or I start using various body parts to beat a tune out of you. Might break a few bones, but there's softer targets to aim for as well."

Only what I've seen on the Warhammer Community site and the contents of Shadowspear. But I can say that Obliterators are great now. I've heard a great deal about the new Dark Apostle (I used the old rules) and I can't wait to get my hands on the new model.

Time for more anecdotes because I didn't take detailed notes. I had a 2000pt game yesterday using the Visions of Victory mission from Chapter Approved 2018. My Word Bearers vs Nephrek Dynasty Necrons.

The deathstar in my army was a Deathclaw Drop Pod containing: a Dark Apostle, an Exalted Champion, a Greater Possessed (from the new Shadowspear box) and 7x Possessed. All Possessed models were Strength 6 and the whole unit could re-roll all failed to-hit and to-wound rolls in the fight phase. They killed 8/10 Lychguard in a single round of combat but sadly I was 1CP short so couldn't play the Fury of Khorne stratagem and have my possessed fight again, this led to 7 of the Lychguard getting back up (thanks to a nearby Cryptek and an Overlord with the Orb of Eternity) so I had to do it all again. Fortunately the next couple of fight phases allowed me to wipe them out properly.

My opponent didn't have too much in the way of anti-tank which may explain why both of my Defilers survived the battle (I'm not sure I've ever finished a game with a Defiler still on the board), they hung around my back-field, killed the 10x Immortals who had been hiding in a Translocation Crypt, protected my Sorcerer and then charged and destroyed the 3x Destroyers and 3x Wraiths.

My Chaos Space Marines didn't last too long but they caused some damage to a few Necron warrior units and helped me secure the odd objective in my backfield. Also from Shadowspear I had 2x Obliterators who deep striked in with my Terminator Lord to cause serious problems behind enemy lines before charging into combat towards the end (because they're not terrible at that now, especially against non-dedicated combat units). Finally there was my Venomcrawler who rushed forwards early in the game to tie up the Lychguard and Scarab swarms for a couple of rounds.

I did have a Helbrute but he died really early on to an Annihilation Barge.

In the end I wiped the field clean of Necrons and won 15-8 (or thereabouts).

Hi Cammerz,
Sounds like it was great fun, and I hope to see more of your CSM!

BTW, have you taken a look at the new changes in the 2.0 Codex?

Best,

I've forgotten what I need to roll for Spellcasting, and I don't have time to look up the rules right now, but so help me I'm burning that horse as soon as I can reread the rulebook.
I can do it my end if necessary :3

Well I suppose it's better than flogging it. Out of interest, how many players are still active in this? Are people still involved but their characters wouldn't be doing anything right now or is it just Nyx and Ben left?
I'll poke Mkoll and Jac on Facebook. Sadly I don't have Railgun to poke, so don't know what happening their end. Hope he's alright.

Ben coughed and retched a bit more, trying to compose himself. Once his head cleared a bit, he decided that an undead horse probably wasn't a good thing to have nearby, even if it was currently docile. Forcing himself to look at the creature again, he raised a hand, preparing to cast Sacred Flame.

Ben worked from the rear of the cart, examining the casks. Each sloshed with the distinct sound of alcohol, but the smell was washing over everything at this point, and had gotten stronger as he had moved closer. The only other place to check was the riders' bench at the front. His eyes began to water, blurring his vision breifly as he came to the front of the cart. He wiped his eyes, and combined with the smell, the sight found before him was too much.
Ben's last meal made a gran spectacle across the flagstones on the alleyway, Ben staggering backwards to rest a hand on the wall.

It was the horse. Or at least what remained of it. Its flesh and meat, though originally covered in an auburn coat of fur before, was now blackened, putrid, and falling to pieces. Clumps of rotten flesh had sloughed off the side of the horse and lay beneath it. Much of its face had come away, revealing the equine skull. Its organs lay mixed with the vile mess on the ground, save for what had been caught by its rib cage.
It improbably still stood. Something was keeping it together and standing dead still as if trapped in a painting.

Nyx was doing her best to wordlessly persuade the goon into talking. Sadly it seemed to threat of magically face lift seemed to be doing. The Goon simply tried turning away, maybe a little embarrassed by the Gnomes' tough girl routine.
