Throwing Paint on Plastic.

Well I broke out the paints a bit this last week to finally work on the back drop for the display board I posted about earlier. I think it came out alright. I need to do some touch up here and there but as it is a background piece I am not to worried about it.

I also set about building one of the Land Speeders I picked up from the Game Empire Tournament I attended last month. I went ahead and magnetized it for a Multi-Melta and Heavy Flamer and figured that while I was at it I might as well do the same to a free Land Speeder I was given (it is in some really bad shape, that's why it was free). I also figured that since I had the paint out already that I might as well throw some paint on the Land Speeder to at least get them started looking like the fit in the army.

Game wise I have gotten in a few games with the Tyranids (getting ties against SM and CSM) and have been trying to help some of the guys with practices games for the 1,000 point random team tournament I am running this weekend. I also got in a couple games with the Space Marines. One was a 1500 1v1 vs Blood Angels where I tabled my opponent, the other was a 3-way game (Space Marines, Necrons, Eldar) using the "Broken Alliance" mission in the back of the BRB that ended in a 3-way tie with everyone only holding their home objective. I used the newly painted Mortis Contemptors in both games and they worked wonders.

Till next time, Happy Wargaming!

40k Nation & Apocalypse 40k: Live feed from Adepticon

I have been watching the 40k Nation and Apocalypse 40K feed from Adepticon and it is awesome. They just wrapped up an interview with Shawn Gately from Blue Table Painting, I recommend that if you are not able to make it to Adepticon that you check out this feed. They also have it set up with chat text so you can ask questions during the interviews.

Mortis Contemptor Dreadnoughts back from paint

Just a quick update. I spent about half of Saturday painting the Kheres Assault Cannons and Cyclone Missile Launchers for the Dreads so I thought I would share them with you guy.

Tyranids dying off? Some of my observations and tactics.

Well in my local gaming group the Tyranids look to be dying off all of a sudden. Now we did have an abnormally large % of Tyranid players for the size for our group, but all but 1 seem to be parting ways with the bugs. Now they all have different reasons one says its to focus on his Craftworld Eldar, another is going to Orks, and one is wanting a more competitive army (he is moving to Gray Knights). While the one other dedicated Nid player is stay with them because he plays just to have fun and only plays with what he has painted, and he only has Nids painted.

Well it's been almost 2 weeks since my last post... it does not feel like it though. Well here is some stuff I have been up to. I ran another Tournament at my FLGS, we had some new faces show up from Bakersfield. One of them being Biffomatic, A blog follower, ended up winning with his
