Moving Time!

Just finished the move into the new house this past Sunday. Now the monumental task of unpacking. Ugh! The Escalation League I am running starts tonight at the LGS so until I can unpack some paints and supplies, playing will have to suffice.

Replacement part received!

So when I got the new Thunderbolt I noticed that the engine part was missing. I shot an email over to the fine folks at FW to advise them of the issue. They replied that a replacement part would be cast and shipped. Five days later, low and behold, a package arrives with the part. As a long time customer service guru, (answering calls on everything from cars to mattresses and all points in between) I am impressed by the service level of FW. I will continue expanding my army with Forgeworld pieces, mostly because they are amazing figures and vehicles, secure in the knowledge that this company has my back on quality and responsibility. That's my two cents.

'Ard Boyz 2010

So this year I will not be attending the 'Ard Boyz competition. Mainly because I simply do not have the miniatures or time this year. Not wanting to go out and be yet another Leafblower player hoping that lightning can strike twice; I have a 2,500 point army that will be built up over the course of this coming year in anticipation of next year's competition. Also, since TheNecro is canceled for 2010, there simply aren't any good, large tournaments in the southeast area with the exception of BoLS-Con. With that being said I am currently on plan to head up to Games Day 2010 in Baltimore but those plans may change to BoLS-Con depending on finances.

To all the players who are duking it out at 'Ard Boyz today, best of luck!

Saturday Night Fights!

A clearing where a Rhino and a squad of Grey Hunter's once stood.
Cmd HQ and an Infantry Squad preparing to sell their lives.

So my buddy Brenton is in town from school and getting ready to head up to Boston for a summer intern position. So I figured it would be a good time to get the ladz together and go roll some dice. My buddy Luis (Lue Bangs on my followers list) lives here in town and loves the new Space Puppies, he has an Ork army and offered to lend it to Brenton. We stuck to games @ 1500 pts so we could all test some 40k goodness. I fought Luis' SW first and managed to eek out a victory 8 kp's to 6. Next I fought Brenton's ork list and barely managed a victory of 2 objectives to one. I feel safe in the knowledge that one more turn would have seen my IG receive a sound crumpin'. It is very clear to me that I lack some significant punch to the list. I am going to start building a Manticore or two out of extra Hellstrike missiles and some plasticard. More on that in a few days.
