I’m working on finalizing the story for the spring event at my FLGS. I put up a first draft earlier this month and now I have the first revision done. Mostly I added in a bit more detail regarding the guardians of the fortress that Chaos is attacking. I fleshed out a little the final paragraph as well. Feedback is gladly welcomed.
Last month I mentioned a 40K narrative event that my FLGS will be hosting in the spring, May 18th to be precise. Time is quickly flying by and I’m working on hammering out the storyline for the event. I see the storyline, if done right, as being a big draw for the event, at least to those who enjoy fun fluffy stuff like this.
This past Saturday was a 1,500 40K tournament at my FLGS. It was a food drive and so you brought in canned goods and non-perishables to get in-game abilities like re-rolls, +1 strength, etc. I played Disciples of Twilight, my Chaos Marines, using this list: http://cmdctr.net/lists/disciples-of-twilight-1500-mech/. Last week I explained the idea behind the list.
Last night I faced off against Ming’s Ultramarines with my Chaos Marines, Disciples of Twilight, in a 1,750 game. We decided to use one of my missions, King of the Hill, and rolled off. He got to choose sides and got first turn.
For the past 5-weeks I’ve been playing my Space Marines, Fate’s Angels. Though I still enjoy Space Marines, they lost the label as my favorite army to Chaos some time ago. Once the Feast of Blades qualifier was over it was time to get back to Chaos.
Another Spectre Studio battle report with Spectre Wile. This battle report I skipped from when it was complete as I wanted to showcase EvilDirtyDave in a battle report since he puts up with us at our FLGS. So, with Spectre Wile he plays his battle report with a tactical tone to his video and of course he showcases his Sisters of Battle again versus his nemesis Andrew, playing his Ultramarines. Now before you shrug from SOB be warned, the simplicity of the “White Dwarf” codex for them has given Spectre Wile the ability to play and play well versus the more “complete” codex. Strange to hear and I didn’t fully believe it either but he has fought me well with the varied armies I own and at our FLGS his record has improved from the Witchhunter codex.
This month my FLGS ran a 2K tournament. Normally in our tournaments we put all the entry fees into the prize pool but this month it was a benefit for a store regular who was diagnosed with cancer. Originally it was to be 75% to the benefit and 25% to the players but GW decided to do prize support for us allowing us to give 100% to this gentleman, which is awesome. The downside is that it would seem a fair amount of people didn’t want to bother thinking the prize pool was insubstantial and we had one of our worst showings ever. It’s sad really. I guess some people care more about the prize support than they do playing some games for fun and benefiting a man with a life threatening illness.
This past weekend the LGS hosted its normal monthly tournament. This month it was 1,850 and as a test run for the event we’re hosting in November we also incorporated sportsmanship scoring and painting scoring. As a result I opted to bring my Space Marines but I wanted to do something different and field a more ‘fun’ list. Here’s the list I brought: http://cmdctr.net/lists/472
After last week’s match up against an IG Air Cavalry force, the player wanted to rematch this week to redeem his honor. This time he brought his Black Templars, which was cool since I’ve never faced them.
