Eric, you're posting the full URL to the page displaying your image when you should be posting the direct url for the image itself.

Instead of posting this:

Code: [Select]
[img]https://yaktribe.org/community/gallery/photos/i-hope-this-gets-things-started-at-my-local-game-shop.5604/[/img]
Right click on the image and select "copy image address", which will give you the direct link to the image itself. Your post should look like this instead:

Code: [Select]

You can always hit "Preview" instead of "Post" to make sure it looks right as well.

Started a new campaign with what I hope will be the Kill Team I run for 15 Promethium cache victory. I'm running a Craftworld Eldar Kill Team (The Spiral Scouts) with models from what I hoped would be a collection of Eldar Corsairs from the Inquisimunda Void Pirate list. I'm also playing a backup of Guard Kill Team (The 135th Light) of Catachans that I intended to be a Goliath Gang.

The CSM player that I'm fighting knows the rules and the two of us can pull off a game every 50 min. We played out three games so far and we are at the point that we need other players to help mix up the fighting. My rule of thumb is that you should never play more than two skirmish games in a row against the same player.

Here is the pics
https://yaktribe.org/community/gallery/albums/for-the-win-shadow-war-campaign.310/

GUARD Vs. CSM: A Hit and Run with the Guard attacking in a #4 Shock Tactics. It was a pretty simple game with my Leader running straight down the middle at ground level and distraction on both side also running at ground level. One Guard was victim of the fact that I discovered you could Arm Guardsmen with only a laspistol. Seeing as I modeled them to be a Goliath Gang I had lots of pistol Juves lying around. This guard was mercilessly crushed by a Khoren worshiping CSM that arrived as a reinforcement on my right flank. The guard that were actively fighting stalled the CSM's long enough for my leader to make the other end of the board and claim victory.

ELDAR Vs. CSM: An Ambush scenario with the Eldar defending. I thought I was screwed. The CSM had good vantages on me from everywhere and the first turn. He downed my Avenger and Exarch but my Scatter Laser spit back and took out two chainsword wielding Khoren CSM's that were planning to barrel down on me. I was then able to "shoot and scoot" with my Defense Gunner into cover. The CSM Heavy Bolter dominated the board but the real heros of the game were two Guardians at ground level that were popping up from ground level and sustaining fire on ledge snipers. Bodies started falling from their high vantages and soon the CSM failed a brake test. Before the end my Avenger and Exarch recovered with flesh wounds.

ELDAR Vs. CSM: A Scavenger's mission. We built the terrain really high for this one with a long diagonal of terrain that cut the board in half. It was six stories high (24 inches). After the terrain was set and deployment was my choice, I actually chose to switch us around. Yes everyone needs to move their crap but sometimes it can just be tactically wise. It's good to "cut the deck" every once in awhile. I had a quick run to grab three loot counters. They were all down a long hallway on an upper level. The poor CSM had get up all the ladders to touch me. But when that Bastard Bolter finally made it up the ladders it was a shooting duel between it and my Scatter Laser. That Scatter Laser really feels like you are throwing water balloons at Marines. The Bastard Bolter nailed the Gunner and I failed my first initiative check with an Eldar. The Damn gunner fell 8'in out of action with a loot counter. In the meantime my Avenger and Exarch were running full speed while jumping gaps to open up point blank on some other ladder climbers. It's really a mess when Eldar can open up on someone at close range. Cultists and CSMs were falling off ladders and soon all that was left on the board was his Bastard Bolter. He voluntarily bottled out with no loot and I got two loot.
