We’re slowly getting some interest in Blood Bowl at my FLGS and since I absolutely love the game I figured it was time to get a team ready for tabletop action. I decided on a Chaos team and I’m in the process of buying the figures I need. I’m snagging Warriors off of Spectre Senence and then the Beastmen from Eriochrome over at Sons of Twilight’s Bargain Bin. In a few weeks I’ll have the team in my hands.
There’s no denying that 6th edition for 40K is around the corner. The rulebooks for 5th are now off the shelves and maybe in a few weeks GW will finally throw us a bone of information about what we’ll be expecting in the newest rule set and I honestly can’t wait.
Yesterday my FLGS held an 1,850 tournament that allowed Imperial Armor. I brought along Chaos Marines using this list: http://cmdctr.net/lists/925/. The list was an experiment. I’ve never thrown down a real death star unit and wanted to give it go. I only managed a few practice games with it before the tournament, none of which went well for me.
You ever have a terrible string of games where no matter what you do things just don’t go right? That has been my last 6-weeks in a nutshell with 40K games. That’s not to say I haven’t made mistakes or deserved the losses I’ve taken, however the dice gods are crapping on me and only making matters worse. It’s honestly at a point where it’s just infuriating but what can you do other than suck it up and try to make the best of it?
I had to set aside my Daemon Prince to put together a Chaos Sorcerer, and to take a break from him. I’m trying to avoid getting burned out working on the Daemon Prince as it’s been quite a time consuming model so far. I tend to get impatient and my work sloppy if I don’t take little breaks on long projects.
After burning myself out a bit preparing for the April Assault, I decided to take a week off painting. That week turned to two. Then I hurt my shoulder and used that as an excuse to put it off another week. Then I just got lazy. Now it’s been a month and I still haven’t done any painting. So what the hell have I been doing?
On Wednesday I released the latest version of Command Center, v2.0.0. The other big thing was a new site. Things look very much the same as before, and function the same, but Command Center now has its own blog. With it now having its own blog, I’ll no longer be posting routine updates regarding it here. I’ll still mention the more notable updates but the day-to-day stuff regarding Command Center will be posted at its blog.
Ok, Derek lives, in total he has lived for 16 days now, but in a massive fit of warp shenanigans my camera died at the very first picture of the poor hero, so I resorted to the phone camera, you should be able to see what’s what though. What I did was paint one of the Dark Angels as if I had never painted before, and I was 12 and not 30+…
A quick update on my Daemon Prince. At this stage I’m working on the skin and I have most of the skin close to completion. I haven’t touched the white/blue skin yet for the wings, that’s next, but I’ve hit the rest of the skin. The final touch on the skin will be some extreme highlights where appropriate.
Saturday a friend and I went to a team tournament, it was 1750 points per player. Yes, you read that right. Per player, meaning 3500 point teams, 3500 vs 3500. The games were long, but really bad-ass and fun. It was overall a really enjoyable day and I’m glad we went.
