Weekly Wrap-up: Tournment Bound

Wednesday night I got in a game against a good Ork player using my Marines. We play tested my mission Special Ops and had a good time with it. Hopefully next week I’ll get to play test Battlefield Superiority.

Rob over at Warhammer 39,999 had a great idea about reviving your old material and putting it out there. Check it out and join in on the fun.

Painting has been slow this week. I wrapped up my Vindicator which I started painting eight months ago, as well as a missile launcher Devastator I had half-done from the same time. Working on some other small items I keep neglecting like that and some hunter killer missiles and such.

This past week I put out two more Beginners Quizzes: 40K Beginners Quiz #4: Shooting Phase (Part 2) and 40K Beginners Quiz #5: Weapons.

On March 12th I’ll be heading down to Watertown, MA for a tournament being held by the Dorkamorka club called Battle for the Burbs. It’s a 1,750 tournament with 30 players that’s heavily comped. These guys are all about full 40K immersion. As a result I’ll be bringing along my Orks since they’re fully painted, well I do have two models to paint and two Tankbustas to build and paint but otherwise the army is ‘complete’. Also, these guys are big into themed armies and my Orks are definitely that. With that in mind, here’s the list I’ll most likely be bringing along. I play what I call Speedmek, which is a combination of Speed Freek and Mek-like elements.
