So the teaching session was a sucess, both guys loved the game and want another. One of my friends already has PHR so he used those and the other friend used his Scourge. Sadly I was to excited to see another game as well as teach that I didnt take any pictures. I do have a few pictures below of some of the ships used however.
If you only ever play I would recommend teaching a game. It gave me a different perspective on the game as I was still learning the rules however as I had no investment in the outcome it helped to see the rules more clearly.
I looked at rules I already thought I knew slightly differently. My way of teaching is to spend the first two turns going through everything step by step and afterwards just let the guys get on with it and answer questions as we go along. Both guys are highly intelligent so there is no real need to baby them through a whole game.
These are pictures of the ships still to be finished. Yesterday when we played they were fully painted. My other friends PHR were unpainted during the game so afterwards we went to mines and he airbrushed them Panzer Grey. The PHR look fantastic when they are airbrushed and I cannot wait to see what he does with them now. The concept he has for them sounds epic.
At the moment I am on a train to Glasgow to pick up some airbrush paints to get Robute Guilliman base coated and started. Tempted by the GW Air range but those pots, really?
Anyway until next time….
