Playing Goatboy Tomorrow, What Should I Bring

 Tomorrow, I am playing Goatboy and I am trying to decide what to bring. I know I'm bring IG. I was thinking about an Ogryn list. But, it is GB and his spamtastic self. Should I make him cry or just die? It's for a BoLS BATREP. So, suggestions anyone? We're playing 1850pts. And remember....

This Saturday, I am going to Killeen for another tournament. Cheezeburger, Stoney Chavez, and Hogleg are going, too. I'm running a variation of my Creed list, it's pretty hard hitting. This one is 2000pts Destruction format. It should be fun. I'll have a report next week.

Now Go Roll Some Dice!!!

Getting Things Painted

   Sometimes it is tough to get things painted. Life gets in the way, motivation is tough to come by, and if you're lucky, you're gaming too much. Lately for me, it has been a little of all three. Well, I started a LRC for my SWs last week and it is 90% finished......AND I have a Vendetta about half finished. I paint as I assemble. So, it is slow going.

   I plan on having the Vendetta ready for a tourney next weekend. I also have some custom flags done for my flag bearers for each squad of Praetorians. I think the flags will be a nice touch. I'll try to get some new pics for next time. Gotta go paint!!!

Recent Tournament Results and Hobby Doings.

  Well, it's been a while since my last update. My results using my Creed/Kell list have been less than stellar, lately. I've been getting into the top 10, I just can't seem to get back up to the top 3. In December, I played at Dragon's Lair, the tournament had 24 players. I lost the first game, massacred my second opponent, and played the super Ninja Master Jwolf in the final on table 4. The last game was hard fought with Jwolf getting the victory placing him in 4th. Prize support was given out to the top 6.

  I finished in the top 10, in Killeen. I played one of the guys that I rode up there with for the first game. He was playing Loganwing and got he win. Next I played a full Mech IG player and got the win. The third round I played a Space Marine player and got a massacre.

  Two weeks ago, I played at DL again. My worst showing in a while with 2 minor losses and a massacre. Thanks to DL's paint scoring I managed to break into the top 10.

   I know the list works, and works well.....most of the time. I think my laid back play style is really hurting my results. I know it did at the last tournament.

  I recently, got a deal on a pair of Basilisks and plan to convert them into Medusas. I also have a Vendetta and a pair of Chimeras to assemble and paint and...and troops more troops....and then there are the Space Wolves that need finishing....and I just emailed a guy about 4 more Rhinos. The insanity never stops...I might have to stop hanging out with Goatboy. The bastard makes me want to start new armies.

   I also, have a set of 28mm Celts to do a report on and I am currently reading a Black Library release for BoLS...It has something very cool in it.....and then there is the Island of Misfit Toys Campaign. That should be fun. How's the hobby treating you?
