T-Minus 8...7...6...

Alright then. I can't help but say that I am only 8 weeks from being back in the U.S.  I can't wait.

But I want to know if anyone is going to Bolscon? I'm going to attend and it would be cool to see anyone that follows Anvil of War. Maybe we could even get a game in. (Ace, I know that we have a certain battle to fight...get your orks ready.)

Also, I have only 1 case that I can bring with me. So what army is better, all Infantry/Horde SM, a mix, or an armored force? Which do you guys think is best and why?

Ahhh...that reminds me...better start painting again, so i'm off.

Happy Gaming,
Ninjaman

So CLOSE!!!!

Okay, I really have to say I am at a crucial point in my life...

For the last 5 years I have been collecting the Shadow Stalkers Chapter on and off, and finally I have reduced my amount needed to finish painting down to 5 Black Reach Termies and 1 Predator Destructor. Needless to say, when I found out how close I was I was overjoyed and I now only need to buckle down to finish  these few. Unfortunately, I had a painting desire that kept me going while I was  painting two Gorgeous captains, 5 scouts, 3 razorbacks and a drop-pod, but it has run out and I am struggling to begin. And so I ask of you...any tips or feedback? It may restart my drive to finish and help me out.

In other news, I was thinking about how cool Belial and the DW used to be, and I may revive them in a cool pre-heresy fashion, as world eaters...I would love to see an army of 20 blue and white models of Various fashions on the board. What do You think of this list:

Captain Zorath (Belial) w/ TH/SS

Zorath's Fist and Zorath's Hammer-5 TH/SS terminators

Zorath's Claws-5 Lightning claw terminators

Zorath's Gauntlet-5 pwrfist termies w/  assault cannon.

Dreadnought Gharrsek, Farrin and Khian-extra armor, venerable and MM/assault cannons

(Interrogator)Chaplain Aleksandr the unstable-in terminator armor, w/ strm blter.

Land Raider Crusaders Death of Gods and Bloodhound-Multi meltas and extra armor

I want to do this list, but only if you guys would like to see it. Comment on it and criticize it if you want.

Counter list.

As a "warrior of the emperor" if feel it necessary to bring balance to the boards, and here is a list based off of my own Chapter-

Shrike

Captain with Thunder Hammer, artificer armor, and digital weapons,

2x tac squads with meltas, rocket launchers, and an assault cannon armed razorback
(1 squad has a power weapon, and both split into combat squads)

10 strong scout squad, sarge w/ pwr fist

10 terminators, 2x assault cannons.

Vindicator

Predator destructr w/ hvy bolters

and for Shrike:

10 assault marines w/ sarge w/ power weapon and melta bombs

As is pretty evident- the army moves forwards, excepting the 2 combat squadded rocket units and predator (who take out tanks), the other combat squads lay down heavy fire for almost any enemy, and the terminators trudge across and either soak up enemy fire, or assault my enemy with a ton of powerfist hits. The scouts...scout and outflank, while shrike acts as a wild card and reacts to any random threats that materialize. The vindicator is a unit that is tasked with Anti infantry or anti tank unit removal.

This force would make a mess of most armies and is pretty balanced. This would be my first 2000 points in almost any army, and for 2250, I would add a MM armed attack bike team and another Vindicator.

1500 Point Tourney List

Hey Dudez,

Its late and I was thinking of something great so I decided to post some poetry.. NOT, nah here is my list for the upcoming tournament..
HQ

Thrakka
Mad Doc

Elites
9 Lootas

Troops
3 30 Boyz Squad Nob PK

5 Mega Nobz Cybork Armour
Battlewagon Deff Rolla 1 Big shoota

The way this list will break down is, there will be a massive amount of boys on the table, and my opponent WILL panic. With the Lootas in the safety of cover giving the boys some attrition to dwindle away at transports, monstrous creatures, and other boyz! While the Battle Wagon runs up the lines and unloads with 6 Power Klaw hits to their tough units! Then the green wave will come and sweep the rest away, led by Mad Dok to ensure that one full squad gets to hit them.

How do I plan on dealing with templates and flamers you might ask? Lootas and Mega Nobz will get the job done, for they do not fear the flamers of the burna boys, just their power weapons. But at this event there will be blood and hopefully a grudge match...


Thats all for this late night post time for me to go get some sleep!

Tournament List

Hey Dudez,

Sitting here preparing for the tournament down at Tower of Games and I am wondering what to bring. The tournament is 1500 points, the last event was 1200 and I ran:
Thrakka
3, 30 Boyz Squads with Nob with power klaw, bosspole and eavy armour.
7 Lootas
6 Lootas
Deff Dread with 2 additional Combat Weapons

The list did PHENOMENAL! Except when the dude pulled out 12 Burna boys and tabled me.. But besides that I felt I did well,

So preparing for the next event, I was thinking either 5 Mega Nobz and a Battlewagon deff rolla and rokkit launchers. Count them as troops, throw Thrakka in there and have them go off to war.

So I am asking you, to give me a recommendation to pack a punch for 300 points. I may post more ideas as they pop in my head!

Logging out!

Ace
