The Face of FEAR!

<- This is the face of fear! The man AFRAID to face me on the table top. Who begged a game from me, yet failed to show up.

I have a little poem for you Jon!

"The Thursday train will bring Al Gleason.
If I'm a man I must be brave,
And I must face that deadly killer,
Or lie a coward, a craven coward,
Or lie a coward in my grave."
Told you I was gonna give you grief for dodging me last night!

I'm enjoying the new Dex quite a bit. Have played 3 games with it now - 2 wins - 1 loss. The loss coming due to a bad scatter roll at the end for a unit coming in. It's an interesting army - different strategy (that I don't claim to have mastered yet) with the first turn deep strike. You get shot up (a lot) and I see that getting much worse in 5th edition. But if you get close enough - whatever survives turn 1 - is on the enemy on turn 2. So far my games have been against Marines - think I'll try my luck against a horde army this week - against my pal Jon and his Orks. Will be an interesting matchup.

The Big WAAGH!

Well - looks like I'm on for the Big Waagh this July. Will be fun to play in a Tourney Circuit event that's right in my back yard. Right now we have 4 of my mates from the Blade and Bolter Boyz (my local club in Nashville) that are attending. At least two of my Brethern from the 40K Wrecking Crew are also attending. The beers will flow and the dice will roll!

For now I think I'm going to be playing in the following events:

1) Doubles Tournament. Gimli and I will team up and run the Marine Horde.

2) 40K GT - The last Hurrah for 4th edition will see (most likely) the final flight of my Eldar Flying Circus.

3) The Bloodbowl Tournament. Haven't played BB in years - but it's a fun, fun game. Will dust off my Norse team - get my arse kicked and drink heavily and have fun.
