Shield of Baal, New Starter and Some Macaroons

I was one of the few lucky ones to snag a copy of this really beautifully produced book at my LGS and I am glad I put the deposit down for it. It is beautiful. Embossed, it reeked of quality. 


Fluff more than rules. I enjoyed every bit of it

Batrep 1850 Points: Hivefleet Leviathan vs Ultramarines

Not the usual quality of batreps I am used to but this will suffice. Primarily due to my army being in bits and pieces as I am preparing them. I am playing Hivefleet Leviathan today and my opponent will be bringing Ultramarines.

Tyrannocyte

Went down to Titan on Monday to pick my Tyrannocyte and WD up. Couldn't wait hence I broke it open. Man this kit is detailed and has many repetitive steps due to it's 5 sided style.

Toxicrene and Maleceptor Completed

The greenstuff has cured and I thought I would share it you guys (especially Greg Hess and Rico Chia). I think this kit was designed to be magnetized if you just figure it out. Now I am glad I did it because I am sure one day the Maleceptor will become viable and I want to have the option to switch without going out and getting another kit.

Toxicrene and Maleceptor - Magnetized

Popped into Titan yesterday to pick up my White Dwarf and then it rained. Had some spare time to kill so picked up the Toxicrene kit. Not knowing which to build, I read the WD and decided to build both! 

While I plan to use the Toxicrene more owing to the new Pods incoming next week (which I ordered 3), I wanted to have the flexibility of using the Maleceptor too. 

Build the main body but kept the head apart. 
 More after the jump...

Breaking News: 3 in 1 Drop-Pod Kit for Leviathan Sporocyst / Mucolid / Tyrannocyte

More Tyranid leaks spotted. Following on from the post I made yesterday, looks like the drop-pod or null deployment for Tyranids is back! November is going to be an amazing month.

Breaking News: Tyrannocyte Spotted!


Spotted this on the interwebs and man it got me excited! Time to break out the Leviathan army which has been hibernating in the Warp. Ommmnoommm nommmm

Batrep:1850 Tyranids vs Eldar

War arrives

My Altansar Eldar take on Marshall's Hive Fleet Behemoth again. Marshall changed bits of his army from the previous game by removing the Raveners and replacing them with Genestealers.

Dark Eldar Army Showcase & a little "Color Theory"

Today I'm gonna be discussing about the problems with painting armies as a whole. Daunting no doubt, but very achievable if we prioritise the steps and compromise a little. This allows us to field largely "painted" armies. Providing us the visual treat we all yearn for when we play a game of 40K.

Batrep: 1850 Altansar Eldar vs Hive Fleet Behemoth

Marshall called me late in the morning to let me know that he can play today! So I packed up my bags and made my way to the game store. This was the start of a very close game.

Completed Guardian Squad Addan's Wave Serpent

I managed to put the final touches on the Wave Serpent that serve Guardian Squad Addan. These included panel line highlights which is a mix of Warlock Purple and Emperor's Children. I then go back and pick out the extreme edges with Emperor's Children. 

Also added the red gems to the Serpent. These start with a base of Scab Red, Blood Red and then Blood Angels Red finished with a white dot. 

Added decals to identify the Wave Serpent pilot and the rear logo for Squad Addan.

Batrep: Eldar vs Dark Angels: Ravenwing

Stephen wanted a game with me after our apoc game we had last weekend so we made an appointment to play on Wednesday. He plays Dark Angels and paints his stuff. Excellent. He brought a full Ravenwing with Sammael, 2 units of Black Knights, 2 units of Ravenwing bikers, 2 Dreads and 2 units of Devastators. I brought my usual 1850 points of Eldar.

1850 points, we played the first mission in the book: Cleanse and Control. 

I deployed first to get the first turn. 

Kept my War Walkers, 1 unit of jetbikes and 2 units of Warp Spiders in Reserve/Deep Strike.

14,000 Points Apocalypse ABO Style!

After waiting for what seemed like forever, the guys and I finally got a chance to gather and set down our models for what seemed like our quarterly Apocalypse game. This time it seemed that we have escalated the pointage. 2 players aside with 14,000 points of miniatures on the board. 

We had Marneus Calgar (Marshall) and Cypher (YC) on one side. On the other side we had Bellial (Stephen) and Eldar (myself). 

It seemed like Belial was on the hunt for Cypher and the Eldar for their own reasons were coming in to assist them in capturing this agent of Chaos. Marneus it seems has been duped into working with Cypher. 

Let battle commence! 

Belial had most of his units waiting in Deep Strike. I deployed my Super Heavies and Serpents to try to capture objectives

Space Hulk - 4 Times Lucky

After waiting for 5 years for the return of Space Hulk, GW finally releases it again. I missed the 2009 launch when I was back in Hong Kong and was caught up in Fantasy back then. Fast forward to today, I managed to snag one. I love the models in this box and while it was expensive, S$140 for the set, the quality is top notch. The tiles and tokens are all printed on embossed hardboard which are thick! 

The Terminators are beautiful and very detailed. I do plan to base them up on 25mm bases (while this will mean they are useless in 40k, the board itself favours the smaller base size) and mark their forward and backward facing, making it easier to play. I am currently using my Genestealers from my 40k army until I finish painting the ones from the box set up. 

First new mission from the book, Beachhead. Uses the new Boarding Torpedoes making each game slightly different as you enter from different points of the Space Hulk

X Wing Tournament Report - GREX September 2014

After much flying about using my tournament list and playing in the PI League, the day arrived and I entered the GREX X Wing Tournament. 

"Whisper" — TIE Phantom32
Veteran Instincts1
Fire-Control System2
Advanced Cloaking Device4
Academy Pilot — TIE Fighter12
Academy Pilot — TIE Fighter12
Academy Pilot — TIE Fighter12
Academy Pilot — TIE Fighter12
Academy Pilot — TIE Fighter12

The list was designed to take down Falcons as I was expecting them to come in droves owing to the heavy Phantom meta. Unfortunately for me, I did not meet a single Falcon build. Here are my 3 games.

Mark brought the new Rebel ACES which was released this week. I did not know what to expect so kept Whisper out of the battle for a very long time. Early game saw it swing in my favour when I managed to take down Gemmer but in response, Mark's Z95 swarm took down majority of of my Ties. I played quite badly and hemmed myself in losing Whisper and then the game.

X Wing League Week 2 and Nagash

Week 2 and I got 4 more games. Played Jeremy, Andreas, Roy and Dale. Managed to beat Jeremy, Roy and Dale but lost to Andreas. He is currently the leader of the pack so looks like I may not get dibs into the prizes. Dang. 


Game with Dale who brought a 4 Interceptor + PTL. Excellent flying although I am not convinced by PS6 pilots.

Space Wolf Updates and Dark Eldar

Very impressed with Defu's progress with his Stormfang so I thought I would share it with everyone.

Tournament Practice

The GREX store tournament is coming this 28th Sept and I will be playing. Will probably be bringing my Phantom Mini Swarm - one of the variants. With the PI League in full swing now, I took the opportunity to score some league points and get some practice in with Dale.

"Whisper" — TIE Phantom32

X-Wing: PI League and Marshall 40K

The PI X-Wing league has started so I headed down to PI yesterday to get in a few games. Dale who works at the store gave me 2 solid and close games! I brought a variant of my Phantom + mini swarm for my first game. Dale brought Chewy, Airen and a Red Squadron. 
I lost my Phantom early due to a bad call by flying between two asteroids, hemming me in from Turn 2 onwards. Dale quickly took Whisper out. Surprisingly, my Alphas managed to down Chewy and even took out Airen and the X Wing. Amazing show and all within the hour. 


1st game with Dale

X-Wing with Roy and Space Hulk

Changed it up a little yesterday. Got into BB at about 1:30PM and while waiting for Roy, I worked on the paint job that I botched up previously. Also added red dots to start up the Tie Fighter engines! 

Playing Rebels instead this time. Actually sat down and created a list based on Airen Cracken. I was going for full range 1 synergy. 


Struggled to work on how to keep Biggs behind and ended losing Dutch early game. Didn't help that the Ties were scoring Hit, Crit or Hit Hit. Kept on playing but eventually could not take the punishment meted out by the Phantom.

More X-Wing, PI League

Got a few games of X-Wing in yesterday with Jeremy and Vick. Also managed to pick up some loot for the PI League. Thanks Dale! 

Flew the Whisper's Academy: 
"Whisper" — TIE Phantom 32
Veteran Instincts 1

Advanced Cloaking Device 4 

Academy Pilot — TIE Fighter 12 
Academy Pilot — TIE Fighter 12 
Academy Pilot — TIE Fighter 12 
Academy Pilot — TIE Fighter 12 
Academy Pilot — TIE Fighter 12 

My list was meant to take on lists like this which had Biggs and Chewie. Unfortunately I flew like a muppet and lost this game

Batrep: Grey Knights (7th Edition Codex) vs Eldar 1850 Points

So it has been awhile since I played 40K and Marshall has been running around crushing people's heads in. Keeps going on about how only 1 person has consistently beaten him (i.e. me). Now that he's gone off to be his own man, he decided that it's time to throw the gauntlet down on the old man (i.e. me again).

X-Wing: Second Video

Managed to get in 6 solid games of X-Wing yesterday. 4 with Vick and 2 with Jeremy. I played two variants of the Whisper list that I have been experimenting with. In both builds Whisper is kitted out exactly the same:

"Whisper" — TIE Phantom 32
Veteran Instincts 1
Fire-Control System 2
Advanced Cloaking Device 4

The two other lists had either Academies x5 or Defenders x2 - all without upgrades. 

I also managed to get in 2 videos albeit the second one got cut off due to a flat battery. I also tried to mitigate the problem with moisture by leaving the camera to dry up first. It worked only until 1 hour into the video and then it started fogging up again. I'll keep trying.

X-Wing Practice with Video

Played 2 games of X-Wing today with Dale of PI.

I thought I change things up a little by tracking my games so I brought my trusty GoPro to film my game (wider camera angle than my regular point and shoot). I was initially hoping to film both games but the battery ran out after 1 hour!

I played the first game which was recorded using list: 
I don't know why my camera split this into 2 videos but here they are. Apologies for the cloudy ending, the fogginess was due to the moisture trapped inside the camera. I have taken steps to ensure this never happens again. As for the audio, I was thinking that it would be secondary to the actual feed since I was hoping to show you guys the actual flow of the game.

More X Wing Practice

Was originally practicing for the tournament this weekend but missed it due to paintball practice ending too late. Nonetheless, I managed to squeeze in a few games with Roy and Vick last week. Here are some pictures of the games. 

Roy brought a Decimator list with 2 Interceptors from Alpha Squadron. I brought my Ten at 10 list.

Decimator Size Comparison

Dropped by the store the other to have a few games of X Wing with Jeremy and Vick. And someone was lucky (or mad) enough to get one of the Gencon early release of the Decimator. I was keen to see how large the model was so took out some of my other models for comparison. Here they are:

Decimator and Shuttle side by side

Decimator next to the Falcon. I was quite surprised that it wasn't so much bigger than the Falcon. 

But the footprint of this model is quite large compared to the other big ships we have.

Star Wars X-Wing Tournament: Tough Choice

Vick organised a 100 point tournament with an interesting twist. You bring two 100 point lists and your opponent gets to choose which one he wants to play against. You choose one of his lists as well. No duplicated unique pilots in either lists. You can bring unnamed ships but only 4 of each kind total in both lists. That's it! 

So I brought two lists:

3 rounds Swiss style. Highest points win using the new VP difference in the FAQ. Here are some pics from my games.  

First game played the previous Malaysian Regionals Champion. He chose Wookie Bees. It was quite a slow game as we deployed on both ends of the board. I knew he was trying to lure me in and use the Ion Cannons to pull me offboard so I did everything I could to hold back. He did the same and while other players were killing off ships, we were still moving 1 forward, 1 gentle. LOL! I almost lost Chewie but that one Evade counter saved me! Woot Millennium Falcon! We ended playing to time and I managed to kill off his Dagger Squadron B Wing and HWK netting me a 24 point win.

X Wing Practice for Tourney and Grex League

I've been quite quite busy practicing X Wing for the Tough Choice Tournament prior to the event and didn't manage to put it up on the blog. Here are some pictures of a few builds I tried prior to the event. I dubbed it Wookie's Bees:

I played a few games with it and actually managed to win against the few lists thrown at me.

Star Wars X-Wing Wave 5 - Details of the Contents

As Rebel Aces come out this month, we can expect Wave 5 to hit us pretty soon with the two large ships. Last spotted at Gencon, this picture will give you a rough idea of their sizes. I personally am going to enjoy trying out the Decimator. 360 degree firing, Millennium Falcon, chew on this.

Star Wars X Wing Wave 6

Gencon 2014 had a surprise for all of us. Scum and Villiany is the 3rd faction to join our game. I will let the pictures speak. 

Star Wars Armada

So unless you've been living under a rock somewhere, Star Wars Armada is coming early 2015! =D Very likely just after New Year or at least in Q1 of 2015. So looking forward to it!

These pictures were taken at Gencon. I will let the pictures do the talking:

Improving the Gameplay X-perience for X-Wing

Like many of you who dived nose deep into X-Wing have come to realise, you'll find that our ships slide about on the gaming mat quite easily. This makes for a disruptive game as the game is meant to be quite precise. 

My friend Roy found a simple solution. 3M Bumpon stickers. Once stuck under the base of the ships, they provide a solid grip. You can now push your template against the base and the base still would remain locked to the spot. Here's one example

4 to a base. This ship now grips really hard on the mat.

Batrep: Ghazghkull Orks vs Altansar Eldar

Youcai and myself played a 1850 game earlier and this is the batrep. Hope you enjoy it and if you do, do drop us a comment. Also remember to "Follow" to get consistent updates! 

YC brought Ghazzkul and gang. His list had 3 Battlewagons (G was riding the golden one) while the other 2 had Orks armed with various choppa etc. Close combatants, 20 each. He brought a large unit of Shootas (30) and another large mob of 15 Lootas with Mekanik. There is a unit of 3 Heavy Nobs with a Painboy. 2 Kans and a Dakka jet. 

I brought the same list I have been playing. Boring I know but I do like the ability of this list to take all comers in 7th Ed. The fluid nature of the Tactical Objectives also forces me to be mobile. MSU's also take a strong presence in 7th ed armies now. 

YC built his army just the night before for our game-subtle shades of grey.

Batrep: Altansar vs World Eaters - The Curtain Draws Open

You Cai and I finally got to play our game. 1850 a side, YC would be bringing a 30k army using the Forgeworld ruleset. I crafted a short narrative capturing the dark work that the Eldar do in the background. The stage was set, let the battle begin! 

The Curtain Draws Open
Farseer Turendas felt rather than see the the approach of the cloaked figure. 

"It is time" said the shimmering figure. 

"This is no mere mortal you tasked us to assassinate. He is a beast among their kind", replied Turendas. He had his suspicion that no matter his query, it would not change the outcome.

"You serve as others have before you. Morag-Heg has Her purpose", replied the fluid image. 

"Then it is done" acknowledged Turendas. 

He knew that the Harlequins broke no discussion when the decision has been made. Farseer gathered his Runes and Ghost Helm and sent out the message to gather the warhost. Altansar goes to war. 

Pre-game
YC recently completed his Angron model and we were gearing up for our ABOcalypse in about 1 month. I set the narrative up as a battle that took place way before Angron was caught in the Heresy, back in 30k. This was after the Eldar failed to assassinate him when he was a child.

What is known is that Angron was discovered by a slaver who chanced upon the battered and bleeding figure of the young Primarch surrounded by scores of alien corpses, high in the northern Desh'elika Mountains. History does not record what species these aliens belonged to, but many Imperial scholars believe them to have been Eldar who attempted to kill the Primarch, due to some psychic foreknowledge of the plague upon the galaxy he would one day become. Angron had been badly wounded in the combat, but remained alive.


-- taken from Warhammer40k Wiki

Now that the Primarach has reestablished contact with his Chapter, Angron was tasked by the Warmaster Horus to bring an outer-rim world to compliance. Upon completing this task and prior to departing to another system, the Eldar set a trap to isolate him from his main force and bring him to the ruined city of Brakenn V as the spearhead.

Batrep: Altansar Eldar takes on Hivefleet Behemoth at Titan Games

Finally had the opportunity to play a 40k game with Marshall. We tried about 4 weeks back but failed due to time constraints. Today, we had the time to sort out a game without having to rush through it. 1850 each, off we go. 

My list was pretty much unchanged since the 6th Edition. I wanted to see if my balanced force would be able to deal with the multiple and constantly changing Maelstrom Tactical Objectives which I believe will make the game more random but also forces the players to bring balanced forces.

Singapore X-Wing Regionals 2014

So what have I been up the past few weeks? Besides work and real life, it was practicing for the Regionals. Held at Gamersaurus Rex, we had a small contingent of Malaysian players who turned up as well. 

Unfortunately I could not take many photos as the games were really tight. We had 35 people sign up and 6 qualifier games to play. I brought the following list:

"Echo" — TIE Phantom30
Veteran Instincts1
Recon Specialist3
Advanced Cloaking Device4
Bounty Hunter — Firespray-3133
Seismic Charges2
Tactician2
Omicron Group Pilot — Lambda-Class Shuttle21
Tactician2
Tactician2

The following pictures are caught before I kicked off each round. Swiss rounds.

First game against Elliot fielding a Jonus + Bombers x3. He is an old gaming buddy of mine so we had a blast. I did lose this game though.

5k DE vs WE/Dwarfs

So we gathered for another round of Fantasy lately. As Sam could not make it, I took 5k of Dark Elves while crazy_rat and the beardy_one took 2.5k each.

As I had 5k to play with, I decided to bring a contingent of each unit so that we can see what each of them can do. Sadly that is the wrong way to approach army lists but it was fun nonetheless.

I brought 30 Dark Spears, 30 Dark Shards, 10 Dark Riders, 24 WitchElves, 24 Corsairs, 21 Black Guards, 14 Executioners, 10 Cold One Knights, 1 Hydra, 1 Kharbidyss, 3 RBTs, 1 Medusa, 10 Warlocks, 10 Sisters of Slaughter, 1 lvl 4 Supreme Sorc, 1 lvl 2, 1 Flying Pegasus Dreadlord (General) and 1 Death Hag BSB on Cauldron of Blood. Crazy_rat combined the Eternal Guards into one big unit of 63. Daniel brought 2 Gyrobombers (le horror!!) along with his contingents of dwarven warriors.

The terrain was set up with a tower in the middle and this proved quite crucial later on.

Painting the Eldar Revenant Titan: Preshade, Prime and Basecoat

Papa Nurgle paid me a visit last Friday and decided he would stay the weekend thus robbing me of the ability to take part in the ABOcalypse June 2014. I actually worked quite hard to get this fella ready for the event, even expediting the shipment of my base. Alas, the Emperor does not protect the Children of the Asuryan.

The last time you saw this model it was constructed and ready for paint. The only thing that was missing was a suitable base. I spent countless hours looking at local art stores for something that would fit into my KR Multicase and still have enough heft to prevent this behemoth from toppling over. I had to work within strict dimensions owing to the case I had pre-purchased for my Titan which was 114mm x 165mm. These dimensions closely resembled the Knight Titan base that GW recently launched.

In come Dragonforge. They have quite a large selection of resin bases from their largest which is 200mm to their smallest 25mm bases. I have gone for the Urban Rubble Series simply because it fit best with my own basing technique.

The actual product looks exactly the same

Golden Kris 2014

Following my success from last year, I figured I would go and try again in this year's Golden Kris painting competition.

This year proved a harder competition; with more entries and an overall higher standard than last year. As it should be - these things should keep getting better!
I entered three models this year:

ABOcalypse June 2014

And so we gathered for a ABO Apocalypse game at Titan Games recently. It was great fun gathering with friends to play a 40k Apocalypse game although some of us could not make it due to the Plaguefather. Nevertheless, we had great fun!

We were playing 6.5k a side with IG and Marines on all sides. Several Super Heavies made the field too. I had wanted to play with 4 Imperial Knight Paladins marching forward together alongside fellow IG beef_nuggets but due to unforeseen circumstances I had to play against him and so I had 1 Imperial Knight Paladin against his 3.

So it was the crazyrat and me (Chaos) against Skanwy and beef_nuggets (Imperium). Death to the False Emperor! It's me and crazyrat together again and our epic fellowship will continue with more fluffs.

We were playing with 4 objectives, 1 in each deployment zone and 2 in no man's land.

                                                                Setting up the units.

ABO First 7th Edtion Apocalypse game

Had our first Apocalypse game. Got the chance to organize the game with ABO gaming buddies. 

Using 7th edition 40K rules. The game was planned to be played at around 10k points per side with 6 players. Due to Nurgle striking 2 players, we had to play the game with 6.5k points per side with 4 players. Got to thank Titan Games LGS for hosting the game.

Imperium 
IG - 4k
Flesh tearers (BA) - 2.5k

Chaos
IG - 4k
Alpha Legion (30k) - 2.5k

The game was a blast. Never had such crazy fun in 40k for awhile, with super heavies failing spectacularly, daemons summoning left and right, rampaging knight titans, mass air battles between the IG. The action never stop.. well before turn 4. I will let Jaeroler post the more detail post on the game. Here are some pictures..

Batrep: Skarsnik vs Morathi

Really glad that Defeng has joined the Blood in the Badlands Campaign held at Titan. He put a 2000 point force and off we went to Titan Games for our game. 

Added 3 Trolls, 2x5 Wolves to my list from the extra points

Batrep Dwarves/Dark Elves vs Wood Elves

Saturday saw everyone gathered again at Daniel's place for a dose of Fantasy after a looooong break. We were playing Dwarf/DE vs new book Wood Elves at 2.5k per player. Pictures are already up, so without further ado, let's discuss the battle.
My 2.5k army. On the small side to squeeze in my Pegasus Lord. 

1 24x Witchelves block with Cauldron of Blood in its midst, 
2 RxB units of 10 each. 
2 units of Warlocks at the back. 
3 RBTs cos of points,
a lvl 4 Supreme and a lvl 2 Sorc both Life lore.
1 Hydra and 1 Khardibyss rounds up my small elite army.

Daniel's Dwarves. Big on infantry blocks with a few war machines.

2 blocks of 30 warriors, 
1 block of 20 hammerers
1 block of 25 ironbreakers
1 block of 20 miners
2 units of crossbows
1 cannon
2 bolt throwers
1 Gyrocopter
1 Gyrobomber.


Daniel and I decided to push heavily down the left flank and this flank has all our heavies. All 5 infantry blocks are lined up on the left with a Hydra, Warlocks, 1 RBT, Cannon, Crossbows and Bolt Thrower as support. Behind my Hydra was a RxB unit holding both my Sorceress.

Background
9111014.M41 - First report of the hive world Quintus III erupting in planet wide rebellion. Local PDF sway by the speeches and propaganda of the rebel leader join up with the masses to overthrow Imperium rule. The Adeptus Arbites were quickly overwhelm in many locations, consolidating in the planetary governor hive spire. The only Imperium force capable of stopping the rebellion at that time were the Necro 8th Imperial Guard with their knight allies stationed on the planet on a rearm & refit operation. Current status of the Necro 8th Imperial guard is unknown. Planetary governor Hartitcus sent out an astropathic plea asking for help to crush the rebellion.

9132014.M41 - Craftworld Altansar Farseers divining into the future saw that doom would strike Altansar  and all paths point to the mon-keigh world of Quintus III. The Farseers & Autarchs assembled a war council  and decided that a strike force consisting of engines of Vaul and titan were needed to exterminate all mon-keigh presence on the planet.

9139014.M41 - Brother Corbulo on-board the Flesh Tearers battle barge - Victus divine that planet wide rebellion was happening on Quintus III. Chapter master Gabriel Seth responds immediately, changing course of the battle barge and heading straight for Quintus III system.

9140014.M41 - Last transmission received from the planet reported blue azure Space Marines with hydra iconography moving between the rebels. Directing the rebels attacks on key installations on the planet.

9144014.M41 -  Dark Angels for unknown reason was operating near the region. On-board their battle barge - Ultimate Vengeance they received the astropath last transmission. Translating the message concluded that the Alpha legion was on the hive world. The presence and chance to capture traitor marines cannot be allowed to slip.

X-Wing 100 Points Battle

After a short hiatus from X Wing, I finally got back into it with Roy at Titan. Flew the Aces and I am impressed with some of the moves those new ships can do. 

This was the list that I played (courtesy of Roy):
Kath Scarlet with Expert Handling, Autoblaster
Carnox Jax with Push the Limit
Turr Phennir with Veteran Instincts

Roy flew this: 
Wes Janson
Ibtisam with Opportunist and Heavy Laser Cannon
Jan Ors with Blaster Turret and Recon Specialist

Didn't manage to take a lot of photos except for the two below. Found Carnox Jax and Turr Phennir really powerful when it came to small skirmish because I could dart out of fields of fire and bring their guns to bear. I struggled with the use of Kath Scarlet as the ship has a large base so I kept clipping asteroids.
