Swift and Deadly

Howdy all, well here is another great unit off the painting table, My Grey Knight interceptor squad. I have kitted out this squad with a psycannon, and use it as a midfield problem causer, or solver, and tend to shunt in later turns of the game with them. I really enjoyed painting this squad, and have been enjoying the game play with them. Enjoy the pics.

The Big Dogs

Howdy Gang, well here is by far one of my favorite 40K models ever, I think it looks great when assembled, very imposing on the battlefield, and I really enjoyed painting it. It has the heavy incinerator, and Gatling Pysilencer (one of my personal favorite weapons, unlike many people), and I run them most often with a personal transporter, he likes to get up and personal really fast. Enjoy the picts.

I'm Back! yea!!!!!

Howdy all, well its been a little while since I have posted anything I have been working on. I took a little break and was just playing games with the stuff I have painted recently while I contemplated what to work on next. Well, I figured out what my next army would be, and got busy painting. I have several units done now, and will be posting them up over the next few days. Below is one of my first units I finished, a Grey Knight Strike squad. This unit.and its twin, which you will see below, will be getting some table time at Adepticon this year. Enjoy!

NOVA Army Gallery

So the NOVA open tends to be a gamer's tournament, so you do get quite a few unpainted, or just horribly painted armies, they tend to be the top armies for some reason. However, there are still quite a few wonderful armies to look at and enjoy, I captured several and just wanted to post them up for you to get a loo as well. Just as a note, the lighting for photographs was horrible, so I did my best. 

My Nova Results

Howdy all,
     Well its been a week since NOVA and wanted to update you all on how I did at the tournament, after some much needed rest. Let me start by saying I really like this event very much overall, it is a different type of tournament than what I usually play, and besides the really great people that is the biggest reason I attend this event. The tournament works as follows; there were 220 people in the grand tournament, with a guaranteed 6 games, and the possibility of getting to play 8 games over three days. Each round played you get paired up  against someone with the same record as you, and after the first four games you get placed in a mini tournament with 16 people, with the same record as you. Now after your games 5 and 6 the top four players from the mini tournaments move onto round 7, and the winners of the round player for their bracket championship.
     Okay so now we know how the tournament works on to me. I did not make it to the finals to start, in fact I did not make it to rounds 6 and 7, oh well. I went 2 - 4 overall on the weekend, with a win in my first game, and a win in my last game. with three of my losses coming in the last part of the turn in the final turns, and i played on major DB (Deutsche Bag).

My army in all its glory
    Below are some pics of my opponents armies and a brief summary. Just a quick couple notes  as well, the lighting in the gaming hall was really bad, so i did the best I could with taking pictures. Also, the NOVA is defiantly a tournament geared toward to gamer, so many of the top armies tend to look like dookie, so be warned.

Look Out Nova, Here I come!

Howdy all, Well thanks for following my road to the NOVA open and checking out the until I have been preparing. Here are a couple shots of the whole are just before I packed it up for the trip. I am going to try and post daily blog updates while I am there to let you all see how things are going, I am pretty excited, and ready to play 8 games over three days, and eat some sea food. Enjoy the pics, and keep your figures crossed!

Here come the gaurd!

Howdy all, Well with 6th edition 40K, and more specifically the addition of allies, I get to do something that I really enjoy when it comes to my armies, I get to build them in line with the back ground of the 40k universe. There are tones of stories of Imperial Guard forces battling a losing battle only to have a detachment of space marines fall from the skies to save the day, or a forced alliance of blood angles and Necrons to beat back invading Tyranids. So, as a lot of my gaming friends know, I am a huge Untramarines player, with a LOT of models. That said I could not resist getting a large force of imperial guard together to aid the boys in blue! Below are 23 pictures of the guard I have completed so far, not including the tanks I posted up in the past. Enjoy the pics
