About Me

Hey there, as you can see this is blog is all about gaming. And that's what I've been doing for pretty much all of my life. Currently I'm completely enveloped in Warhammer 40,000 and I'm breaking into the new Warhammer Fantasy system with the release of the new 8th edition.

Follow me as I build new armies, find newer and better ways to destroy my enemy, learn more about the rules, and just complain about the things that don't go my way :)

Dallas GT: Railhead Rumble


If you've not heard of the Railhead Rumble put on by the infamous Heroic 28s podcast group, it's time for you to learn about it. It's one of the 40k GTs here in Dallas in a long time, other then the first ever Astronomi-con last year. Dallas has spent quite a bit of time dead in the water when it comes to GW Events but over the last couple years we've seen quite a big turn out for tournaments, especially with the support of our Austin Cousins.

This year, the Railhead Rumble will take place a A-Kon and will be on June 11th and 12th. It's a seven game tournament with the first four games seeding for the second day in which battle points start being awarded. That means that people of all caliber have a chance at winning even if you're not on table 1.

For more information check out the registration page here, http://theheroic28s.blogspot.com/p/rail-head-rumble-registration.html

It's only $40, not a bad deal for a seven game tournament, and don't forget I'll be there, as one of the Judges ;)

Additional Price Increases

Some more information from Bell of Lost Souls this morning. Looks like there is an updated list of items that we will be seeing go into effect end of May, most likely the 28th to coincide with the increases and switch to resin on the other products.

While we've all been dealing with these price increases for the past few years they seem to be starting to spiral out of control. I may have just bought my last GW army last month. How do you guys feel about it?

Alamo 40k GT 2011: Day 1

Day one of the Alamo is over and I've got to say I've had a lot of fun. Beer, Gam ing, and fun people just makes a day great. The tournament is nice and relaxed, 2 and 1/2 hours of game time for 2,000 points, which for me and my games have given us plenty of time to play without running in any time issues or even a warning to hurry up and finish.

My first game was against Space Wolves. It was a quick and fun game. I was able to get first turn, and pull off scout move with the Dreadknight and a Purifier squad. The two squads then charged his two long fang squads on the first turn, Vindicare blew up his Land Raider and the Autocannons took out the Vindicator tank. After that it was wittling the rest of the army down. I ended up getting full points for the game.

Game Two was fun too. It was against Codex Space Marines, he was running 3 10 man tactical squads, 2 10 man devastator squads with missiles and lascannon and a 10 man terminator unit. It was capture and control, and he castled in his corner and I spent many turns trying to break through his defenses. I ended up pulling off the win with a bad die roll on his part that caused his last scoring squad to get pinned, I think was able to take them out and was left with the only scoring unit on the table and an objective.

Game Three was by far the most difficult game I've played in a while. It was against Nick Rose from Bell of Lost Souls and he was playing a hybrid deathwing Black Templars list. We literally beat each other to pieces and pieces. It was an anhilation game and was a lot of fun. Nick's a great guy and puts up a good fight, it was also nice discussing the game and seeing what I could have done differently next time.

Overall I'm really enjoying the Alamo and can't wait for tomorrow!

Grey Knights: Army Done

Now that Blogger is working again I can get a little post in here. So I was able to finish up my Grey Knight army Thursday Night and let me just say I'm very happy with the way it turned out.

Grey Knights: Army Painting Progress

So after a little more then a week of work I have finish up all of the infantry and three rhinos for the Alamo GT. I wouldn't say they're 100% done yet though as I've still got some inks I want to throw on them and the like, but as time is running out and my poor fingers are starting to cramp it's time to call them done for the round and move on.

That means all that's left for me are the two dreadnaughts, one dreadknight and the stormraven which I'll be painting Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I'm looking forward to seeing how they come out, and I might have a little surprise to show for the stormraven.

Cowboy Kenny - Custom Head Painted


It's official. Cowboy Kenny is Painted and the Justicar of a Strike Squad. The model painted fairly well, but there was a small texture on the head model that was overcome by using thicker paint to help even it out. I think it came out quite well though :)

I'll post some more progress of the Knights later, I've spent a week painting and have just about all of the infantry done, just need to do the nemesis weapons, and 3 Rhinos by Sunday to hit my goal. Keep an eye out for it.
