40K, now with missions

I did manage to get in a game this last weekend. The game was against Paul and Alex's Eldar and Space Marine forces. I was running my Night Lords list, but added a Predator with autocannon and heavy bolters, a unit of raptors, and, at the last minute, a unit of cultists. My list comes to 1885 without the cultists and 101 power level. The cultists were a last minute addition to make up a few power level. Ironically the cultists turned out to be clutch.

More hobby progress?

Just a quick one. I didn't get any game in last week, was teaching some minors 40k. But I thought I would show off my progress on my two Chaos Lords. Super happy with how they are going. Still have a lot of work to finish the army, though.

Is that.... hobby progress?


Why yes, yes it is. With the new edition of 40k I have been enticed to dive back into work on my Night Lords. I started before the new edition dropped, hoping my stuff wouldn't be invalidated. Thankfully, it wasn't. I'm not sure how good it is, but I can play it either way. The changes have changed my mind about trying to Night Lord up some Daemon Princes, as Chaos Lords may fill the spot rather well. And much cheaper. To that end, you can see my first of (likely) two lords. I may decide to add more, I don't know, yet.


Beyond that, I have made great strides on my custom rhinos. It is a vast improvement over where they have been in, like, forever. Well, a couple years at least. This is the prototype, and it is almost ready to start casting the armor bits to add to my other four chassis. But that isn't all. I don't have a picture, but I have all of my Chosen largely base coated. Things are definitely moving forward, and I hope to have more progress pictures up soon.

Many mini 8th ed battles


As many of you should know, 8th edition 40k came out last weekend. Since then I have been playing game after game. Exclusively at 19 power levels, my oldest wants to play his guard, which is a unit of Veterans and a Tank Commander. Needless to say, the wider scope may be missing. However, I have learned some things.

Knee Slider


Haven't been playing a lot lately, largely due to life. Other people's lives, actually, as I don't have a life of my own. However, I was able to get in a game of Guild Ball this past week, against a guy I haven't played since my Malifaux days. Honestly, I'm not sure I ever played him or he just played in my events. Either way, he agreed to give me a game. He used his Morticians, since Engineers are over powered, and they were painted a bit. I, of course, played Masons. I had picked up Chisel forever ago, because she is awesome, and I didn't think I was going to be able to get a scene going at HT, and I wanted her. I also, more recently, picked up the Kick Off starter. It is cheaper, and I just can't let dreams die, no matter how far fetched. Well, I originally wanted to join the group at Rogue's Roost on days when the KoGT group flakes(there are only two left besides me). However, after trying to get a game in there, I found those guys to be obscenely unpleasant. Dreams are for loser anyway. But I can't let mine go, so, having a free week night, I put the Facebook call out. And low and behold, Haunted has a Wednesday night Guild Ball night. It isn't super active, but I only needed one player, and blammo, a game.

I played games!

So, after a couple weekends out of town and life and such things, I was able to get in not one, but two games of X-Wing over the past weekend. I ran basically the same list. I played Paul both times, and I managed some wins on top.

False start and a face plant


As I have mentioned, GW has a Blood Bowl League going on. So far, my LGS can't get the info to put in games, but I am still playing. When I get some games posted, I will tag my league site on here. Anyway, the Saturday before last I started a game versus Paul's Orc Island Raiders. We only managed to get in two turns before I had to run grab my kids. When I returned, one of them threw up, so that was that game. We did meet up on Thursday for a game, and I will get into that after the break. I also ran a X-Wing tournament last Saturday. Well, "ran" is probably the wrong word. It was more of get off work early, race over, set up tables, wait for a while, clean up tables, go home. Yep, nobody showed. It was super exciting.
Well, anyway, onto the game that was exciting.

A Weekend of Space and Field




Well, I didn't end up going to Colorado Winter Invasion 2017. Partly I was sick, partly they had even numbers, and partly I just wussed. I was not idle, however. Instead, after sleep in quite late, I headed to Hobby Town and played Paul three games of X-Wing. Then, after more sleep, I ran a build your Blood Bowl team event at Hobby Town on Sunday.

Arms build up

So, I am preparing for an invasion, a winter invasion. In a couple of weeks, I will be headed to Winter Invasion 2017. It will be a 999point Dropzone Commander three round tournament. I have never done a Dropzone tournament, so it should be interesting. As such, I figured I should probably get a few games of DzC in before the event and hopefully come up with a decent list.

Two by two by two by two.... And Dropfleet

As has been the standard for a while, on the Saturdays that I don't have my kids, after hours we throw down a game of Firefly. Well, this past week was no different. However, what was strikingly out of the ordinary was how often I drew the reshuffle Misbehave card. During the game, we saw it come up 6 or 7 times, of those, I drew it 5 times. Suffice it to say that this game was mildly frustrating. Not in a bad way, I just couldn't get through. However I did manage to get some Dropfleet games in, both on Saturday and during the week.And after the break I will tell you how those went.

New Year's resolution: post more

Well, 2016 was rather light on posts. Between school and life, I just haven't got anything posted. I HAVE played games, though my hobby progress has slowed. My current games of choice are AOS and the new Dropfleet Commander. I recently purchased some yhetee, but beyond that my ogres have stalled. Tomb Kings are just more versatile and thus more fun. I have also been playing Dropzone, since my kids got starters for Christmas.
Anyway, I'm just going to do a picture dump of recent games.
