@asch I just checked and my friend said he won't be able to make it so that's one less 40k player.

@Karantu - What are you bringing for 40k? Asch and I will probably both be playing Marines, so perhaps we can ally against you for a 3-player game?

It would be wonderful if you can bring that many points!

Great! Sounds like a plan!
I'll bring a 1000pt marine army for tomorrow morning.

Aeronautica Imperialis is a fun game, there's a lot of depth in that manoeuvre system but having to make decisions while executing them provides a valid and interesting differentiation to Xwing. Thanks for the game, Karantu!

Even with the hex based movement it still had quite a bit of depth. The faction balance seemed to be in the favour of the Imperium but different missions and upgrades might fix that.
I'll probably bring the Aeronautica Imperialis stuff again and hopefully they'll be painted by then.

@Auxryn I had fun with the 40k game as well. It was a relatively close game and I would like to see how much the Salamanders supplement changes things.

Back of the envelope looks like I have about 1500pts of Space Marines (if desperately short of Troops since that is not a thing in Kill Team ^_^), so if next time more people are looking to play the big game than the skirmish games I should be able to throw together something playable.

Here are some pics from our Rangers of Shadow Deep game. This is the 3rd scenario in the introductory series. The goal is for our heros to sneak/fight to the other side of the river and loot/find clues in the gnoll camp. We got half of that done but got good and beat up doing it.

Here is the bridge. Unfortunately, my big, beautiful stone bridge is quite tall. Thus, the gnolls had good LOS and our "strike silently, melt back into the shadows" was a not go. Charge!
Image

Here is one of Itakura's Gnolls. Look! He brought lunch.
Image

Kari the Huntress faces off with the Gnoll Sergeant. A battle so epic it gets shaded sepia. Actually, I painted Kari in monochrome as an experiment, so she really looks like that.
Image

And the heroic Spuds! On three. 1,2.3 kawaiiiiii...... (That's the dog, not the ranger.) Spuds just kicked Gnoll butt right and left, but fell defending the bridge. Don't worry kids! Spuds is okay! He was only hurt a bit and has to sit out the next game. He fell off the bridge and was washed down the river, to be found by a young boy and nursed back to health in the most heart-warming, boy-and-his-dog story ever imagined.
Image

And the game's MVP. Underdweller's Ranger has a special leaping ability. Who needs a bridge anyways. He vaulted across the river and found the secret scroll we were searching for, but abandoned the treasure to draw off a gnoll attacking Itakura's wounded Ranger. Thus saving him, but falling in his place. Brings a tear to my eye, this stuff. Again, don't worry kids. "Leapin' Larry" will be back next episode!

Image

Rangers of Shadowdeep is a fun game. Really relaxed. Has a feel between D&D and a "Choose Your Own Adventure" book. I really need to expand my terrain collection. Next scenario has dungeon stuff. I need to build some barrels and crates, chairs and tables, weapon racks and torture chamber/wizard's lab bits.
...and now his Head was full of nothing but Inchantments, Quarrels, Battles, Challenges, Wounds, Complaints, Amours, and abundance of Stuff and Impossibilities.....
