It appears I won’t be gone this weekend as originally planned. Hopefully that means I’ll be able to catch up on some painting for Joe. Life has kept me from it the past week. Why can’t weekends be four days long?
When it comes to tournaments at the LGS I play at, we always end up playing the same missions over and over. There’s about six of them and they are recycled every month. They get mixed up a bit but still the same old ones we’ve played countless times. I…Read More
Last month Blood of Kittens put up an article, Meat for Meta: 40k forums a thing of the Past?, and lately I’ve been thinking about it more. Let’s travel back in time a bit, the year is 1999. I’m running a clan/guild called Destroyers of Hope. I want us to…Read More
I first saw a leaked demo of this game over a year ago now and was impressed by what I had seen. Since that leaked demo I have seen official video releases and they were all stunning.
I’m not one normally for book reviews. I thoroughly enjoy reading, only 40K as a hobby takes up more time than reading, but I’m not an English or literature expert and thus the technicalities elude me. That being said, here’s my humble opinion on “Path of the Warrior” by Gav…Read More
Kommandos have always been a favorite unit of mine, especially with Snikrot. They’re a unit that as soon as I put into my list the list becomes exciting for me. For a while I had not fielded them and I couldn’t honestly recall why. After this month’s tournament I recalled…Read More
Another long and mentally tiring game of moving plastic models around a table and rolling dice. I didn’t fair poorly but I did not win the tournament and did not win any consolation prizes either, IE: best army, best sport and…there was another one. For the day I went 2-1,…Read More
Today the 1,850 tournament at Crossroad Games commences at noon. Because of ‘ard Boyz, I have not played in a tournament since March, so I’m looking forward to today. Time to print off the army list and gather the Boyz into the transport. Waaagh!
Most every blog has its shtick, right? Well, here’s my conceived one, the Gauntlet. The goal here is to stimulate thoughtful assessment of a situation, a strategy, an idea, whatever it happens to be. You can’t look at things in a new way if you don’t ever try. Gauntlet: In…Read More
I have a few pet peeves (a few is putting it lightly), but foremost amongst those is the unthinking person. This applies to anything but I’m applying it to 40K today. The zombie is the type of person who reads things and takes it all at face value, never challenging…Read More
TastyTaste over at Blood of Kittens has been running a series called In Defense of 1500 that I’ve found interesting. When I got into playing 40K with my friends we were always playing 1,500 games, sometimes we’d go up to 1,750 or 1,850. Initially I was building my army and…Read More
So, now you have an idea the units I use in my Speedmek list and now it’s time to show how that all comes together. This is a list I’m pondering for an upcoming 1,850 tournament at the FLGS.
