Happy New Years!

A little early on the celebration, but now is as good a time as any!

I have decided to take the resolutions idea seriously this year. I have come up with a few that I am planning to work towards.

1. Do more pleasure reading. The kindle will hopefully facilitate that.
2. Be less cynical and negative and try to find the good in things.
3. Paint and model my Grey Knights to the best standard I can.
4. Become more healthy
5. Be more diligent at school and at home.
6. Finally, living life to the fullest.

:) Have a good 2012 everyone!

Backtracking on the Grey Knights...

Sadly, I overestimated the usefulness of my current Tactical Terminators in creating more Grey Knight terminators. They would look horrible, imo. So, I am going to sell off the Tac Terminators as well, as hopefully put that money towards more Grey Knights. I still have 3 Dreads and 3 Rhinos, so most of my vehicle needs are covered :)

Selling my Space Wolves/ Space Marine models

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320819669335&ssPageName=ADME:L:LCA:US:1123

I am selling off my Space Marine and Space Wolves models. I have WAY too many tactical marines, and I have very little to actually do with them. I have come to find I don't really enjoy Vanilla, Blood, or my Space Wolves. They are fun, and they can be competitive, but they just aren't for me. It's time to make a change!

With these funds, I hope to move back into Grey Knights. I have almost 21 Terminators, which is a Paladin list in the making. I intend to make Grey Knights my only Power Armor army and expand more into the xenos. In addition, the Grey Knights will become my tournament army. They are fun, interesting, and very competitive. Not to mention, they were the first models I ever bought! A new achievement for me as well: I fully intend to take TIME and EFFORT to paint these guys.


So, after a long winded explanation of my choice: Bid if you are interested!

Hobby Progress

So, I don't know what to be more happy about: The completion of my Retribution or the completion of the Daemon models I have. With the advent of Warmachine in my life, I have been moved to complete and play the other games I have.

I built a Hydra and Phoenix for my Scyrah, which gives me this 35 point list:

Kaelyssa
Griffon
Chimera
Hydra
Phoenix
10 Dawnguard Invictors
Mage Hunter Assassin
Arcanist

Fairly diverse and fairly mobile. It has been a ton of fun to play so.

I also built 5 more Horrors for Daemons, and I repaired a number of other Daemonettes and Bloodletters. I also reglued the Skulltaker and the Juggernaut. They are a mix of circle and square bases, but I fully intend to play both sides of the ball with them. Hey, why on Earth not?

I am hoping to get some painting done and play a few games. I also think that the winter break will motivate more posting on the blog.

Happy Holidays!

First Games of Warmachine

First of all, it is a fun game! I enjoy a lot of the mechanics in the game. The cards are really helpful, and the abilities and myriad of options is a nice change.

Some major notes:
I need to get used to the Retribution. They aren't difficult to understand, but there are still some secrets and combos hidden within it. Some more practice will likely help that.
Cover and Movement is far more important. I need to get used to that too.

Other than that, it has been a blast. I will hopefully have more thoughts after playing a few more games.

12/3/11 Star Fox Team Tournament

A very successful event! We had 10 teams participate in a 3 round, Battle Point tournament. There were a variety of combinations including Sisters of Battle and Daemons, Necrons and Space Wolves, and Space Wolves and Tau!

After three hard fought rounds, we had three teams place:
1st- Adam and Levi- Sisters of Battle and Daemons
2nd- Danny and Chris- Dark Eldar and Dark Eldar
3rd- Mike and Gary- Space Wolves and Tau

Bill won the Best Painted and Robert and Jeb won Most Awesome Team.

Overall, everyone had a lot of fun! I think the teams added a fun new dynamic, and the missions went over very well. Some improvements can be made of course, but I think it went well.

The Valentine's Day Massacre will be the next event held by FrOGs and Arkham. More details to come!

Pictures of the Winners and the Tournament! http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.337428736271483.119057.304324916248532&type=1

Christmas Gift to Me!

I have finally made my first investment into Warmachine. On the Privateer Press website, they have awesome holiday bundle deals. This is the best part: they had a Retribution of Scyrah bundle! This faction was honestly my favorite of the Warmachine factions, but I had thought they had little to no support. I did some research and found this wasn't the case. Sure they didn't have a battle-box, but they sure have the same awesome PP treatment.

I now have 35 points worth of Retribution heading to my mailbox, along with a free tape measure, dice and tokens! It will be awesome!
