Yearly Archives: 2011
This was a feature I had put off for a while because honestly it was a pain in the ass to make work correctly. I’m glad though that I finally got around to making the effort because for anyone who uses Command Center with regularity they will find this feature invaluable.
Wednesday night at my FLGS I played a team game. January’s tournament will be a team game with 1,250 per-player and random pairings. The force org is restricted to avoid breaking it and make pairings easier. It’s 1 HQ, 0-1 elite, 1-3 troops, 0-1 fast attack and 0-1 heavy and you can add 1 more to any of the 0-1 selections. In my continuing effort to test things out with Chaos I brought this list, the same one I used last week: .
I thought it would be interesting, to me if nobody else, to make use of all the match data that I keep. I’ve played for just over five years now and have recorded every game. So, let’s see how I’ve progressed, or digressed as the case may be, over those years.
So, Santa was pretty nice to me. Between the bonus I got at work and the misses’ xmas gift I can add more to my growing Chaos army, Disciples of Twilight. Naturally, as is the case with me when I can get something, I’m just not sure what to snag yet. At the moment I own:
I recall when Planetstrike was due out how excited I was to try it. That was just about three years ago and I had only played it twice despite owning the book. Last night though at my FLGS almost everyone decided to play Planetstrike.
It’s been a week since I put up the first workbench so in an attempt to keep myself on track I’ll aim to get a new one up each week.
I just found out that Google will be discontinuing Google Friend Connect for non-Blogger sites come March. Google is shutting down a handful of their services that just aren’t doing anything of note. Since this blog and Command Center are not Blogger sites that means come March I won’t be able to use the service and so I went ahead and removed it from both sites already. On the plus side it did fix the issue with the Google +1 button not rendering.
Just a brief update on my current projects. I wanted to add a couple of fast moving units to my army so I’ve been working on a unit of Skyclaws and some Thunderwolf Cavalry.
Wednesday my Chaos Marines faced Imperial Guard. His army is themed as Cobra. Wish I had a shot of his army, it’s cool, complete with Cobra Commander and Destro. You can see it a bit on the left image.
The other day to motivate myself I started a workbench article and surprisingly it worked. Last night I wrapped up 5 Plague Marines. I really should have taken some WIPs while doing the sculpting but unfortunately I did not. These guys are converted from standard Chaos Marines and some old school Possessed heads. I put the Champion in the shots just to show the full squad even if he’s not painted yet. The empty-handed guys are my specialists and I just haven’t painted their weapons yet.
This past November marked my 5th year of playing 40K and with the year quickly coming to a close I began thinking about what 40K is to me. I could spin this into some sort of psychology article but others have already done so better than I. Instead this will just be an honest article about me, something I rarely do.
