Here’s my second week without pictures to update you on my progress. Things have been hectic, and I’ve been spending most of my weekends out of town the last few weeks. For now I’ll catch you up on my progress and try to post pictures later on.
As I mentioned recently we’re trying to drum up interest for Blood Bowl at my FLGS. I had originally decided to do an Orc team because it’s easy to proxy but then I realized I could do a Chaos team easily too since I use Beastmen for my Chaos Marines’ Lesser Daemons. So, change of plans and here’s my initial roster.
At my FLGS we are trying to get some interest in running a short Blood Bowl season. There’s only a handful of us who know the game but I’m hoping those who don’t will be interested in checking it out and giving it a shot. I’m not sure when we’ll actually begin but I wanted to get a team ready and I already know it will be Orcs. I don’t actually own any Blood Bowl teams and the easiest thing I can proxy in is my 40K Orks as an Orc team.
The local guys are throwing a semi big one day fluff tournament. Painting scores and fluff are big. So I will be bringing my Mek Ork list. This has the best paint and the most conversion work out of any of my armies. I will put some photos up in the next week. This is the list.
This has grown out of my previous incarnation of my list as an attempt to get more delaying units and more plasma shots in my army. While still not an “internet approved” list, it is alot better for our local meta than the first list I think.
This will be a departure from my usual Tau list, as it hase become readily apparent that everyone has figured out how to absolutely own my poor fish-men. I’ve found that the mobility of recent 5th edition armies simply trumps my ability to shoot them as they close. So I’ve decided to go mobile myself. Here’s what I’m thinking.
April will be a 2K tournament at my FLGS and even though it’s a good five weeks out, I’m already working on some lists. The last tournament really infused me with enthusiasm I haven’t had with my Marines in quite some time. Always loved the genetically enhanced super soldiers but until recently I was just unsure what I wanted to do with them.
After the beating I took at Battle for the Burbs I’ve decided to run my Marines for the 1,750 tournament this Saturday at my FLGS. My Orks are still sobbing in their fungus beer. I wanted to test out a list I ran once previous. It has a ton of fire support with some assault elements in the form of Assault Marines, Assault Terminators and Shrike.
March 12th is a tournament in Watertown, Massachusetts being held by the Dorkamorka group called Battle for the Burbs. It’s a 1,750 tournament with 30 players, the biggest tournament I’ve attended. The event is heavily comped, I’ll save you all from the details, and I’ll be bringing along my Orks for it. I’ve devised a few lists but I think I’ll end up going with this one. It’s a bit different than my usual lists but still the same style.
Yesterday was supposed to be the 4th week in our campaign at the LGS but we were snowed out. So, next week we’ll pick up where we left off and that’s a 2,000pt game. Since the prior week was 1,850 I decided to build off that army list with some tweaks. Like the last one, this is a bit of an experiment. The experimental aspect is the Ironclad on foot. In the past I’ve generally run two of these both in Pods along with an empty Pod to get both Ironclads down on turn #1. I’ve had mixed success with this and so I’m always trying something different. Here’s the list:
To bring some of you up to speed if you don’t read here regularly. Lately I’ve been playing with Shrike and have really enjoyed what he offers to my army. I’ve been toying around with different lists just to feel things out. Right now I’m not after the most super-competitive list. I’m playing, experimenting and learning. So, bear that in mind with the below list. First up, here’s the list:
