40K Prag and back

Breakfast in Prag for the Ogre cup
Two weeks after my first 40K event of the year and the Imperial Guard were on the march again.  This time the target was the Ogre cup in Prag. I went a bit conscript crazy and arrived with 200 Guardsmen with support from six AFV.
Day one saw the guard engage and destroy Fleshhound/screamstar pact, followed by Cron air and ending on Tigarius/centurion star, The Guard end the day with thirty points out of a possible thirty points after some pretty tense games.
Day two saw reality kick in and the Guard lost their first game 6-4 two an eldar Wraithknight/jetbike list. Largely due to me making some bad plays after the ref called time allowing the last few eldar jet bikes to creep in to sneak off with enought objectives to claim the win. The final round saw the Guard pair off against a Marine bike list. It should have been an easy game but my opponent quickly demonstrated how he had fought to table one and delivered a pair of devastating blows. Fortunately skill and grace is a poor match to three hundred plus lasguns shots at point blank range and the game ended with a Guard win 9-1.
When the dust had settled operation Conscript carnage had won best general and Best overall army and won me a second Ogre cup.

I table these guys but then in the night we played kill team and they got their revenge

Baron used Mechinicum guys for his centurions. I think it turned out really well

:) A little.

This time there was little concern regarding the close combat thing. But considering the conscripts took down a chapter master I think that has passed. Warpcon now whispers in my ear but I am not sure if it will work out.
