The Year in Review

Hey there, everyone, how's it goin'?  My internets are finally working again, and I've got lots of stuff ready for your viewing pleasure after the new year.  Today I kind of just wanted to talk about my year in wargaming, my failures, accomplishments, etc.  Nothing too crazy exciting, but it's good to have records of these things, neh?

Defenders of the Adeptus Mechanicus Part 3: Pictures of the Army!

An Article by C.J. Young

Hello Everyone,

This is the final installment of Defenders of the Adeptus Mechanicus aside from some possible future work I might do on this army! First is the history of my Knight Titan Order the Knights of Victus. Lastly, I present the pictures of the army that stole much of my time over the last year. Let me know what you think about the history and army.

Glad to be here

Hi everyone, I recently beat Xaereth in a game of 40k, passing his test he invited me to bring my version of ice cream covered justice to his quest to take over the internets. I have been wargaming for just over 4 years, I have played many different armies in many different systems but I am currently playing Blood Angels, High Elves, and Cygnar.

I consider myself a hybrid gamer, I make list with

Christmas LoL

Everyone's blog says Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays on it, so I guess I have to follow suit.

Actually, I just wanted to say sorry for not being that consistent of late.  Break means that I get out of my 'get things done' mentality, which means that not only have I been slacking here, but also on Jawa's blog.  No weekly battle report,

Upcoming Stuff

Hey, what's up folks!  After an entirely brutal two weeks of projects and finals, I'm finally done with school for a month, which means more time! More time for what, exactly?  Well, clearly blogging a little bit is a good idea, but also to paint and play more games.  It'll be nice to actually have enough time to spend with my wife and wargame to my heart's content.

Sad Faced Guard List

Tonight I made an army list that made me sad.  I was trying to come up with a guard list that wouldn't auto-lose to my Jump Blood Angels list (or any 'well constructed' Blood Angels list for that matter), but would also be competitive against everything else.  One thought led to another and I came up with the idea that plasma was key.  Alright, read on to look at the list.

Weekly Battle Report #7: Salamanders vs. New Dark Eldar

Hey there folks, whats up!  Today's battle report sees my Salamanders face off against a skimmer-heavy Dark Eldar army.  Fun times had by all, this was only my second time playing this army.  It's somewhat apparent that I'm grossly inexperienced in using Land Raiders, as you'll soon see.  Still, it's for sure a good game, and as you'll see, it turned into a pretty good battle.

Defenders of the Adeptus Mechanicus: Part 2

 An Article by C.J. Young

Hello again everyone! Sorry for the slow posting, but I have been doing finals here at UW and been studying for the LSAT I am taking this Saturday. So without further ado, I give you part two of Defenders of the Adeptus Mechanicus.  (here's a link to Part One)

Weapons vs. Fists

Today I want to talk a little bit about the role of power swords vs. power fists in an army.  Lately I've seen a lot of lists with misplaced swords and fists, so I figured I'd give my take on it.  Some of it will hopefully make sense, though a lot of it likely has to do with personal preference.  Guess we'll see.

Great Article on BoLS

I don't typically read many articles on BoLS.  Mostly the stuff I read is hobby news-related stuff, and if I'm bored, I'll read a few random articles here or there.  Simply too many writers there for me to keep track of and know who writes well and who writes... um, unwell.  lol.  (plus, lots of times the articles are so short, just when I find myself getting interested, they simply end.)  Anyways,  I check there for rumors for the 'next codex', every 3 or 4 days, and today I was rewarded by finding a pretty good article.  It's not even about Grey Knights, lol

Weekly Battle Report #6: Salamanders vs. Ork Horde

What's up everyone!  As promised, I'm starting to use a different army other than my over-used Wolfstar.  I wasn't really tired of the list, but it's always been my intention to play the Salamanders once they were finished, and I finally got them done.  This game is a fun one for Salamanders, with lots of targets to try and flamer and such.  As always, there are pictures.  Read on, for the report!

Email in: 1600 point Blood Angels

Received an email recently, asking for my thoughts on a Blood Angel list.  First, here's the email:

Blood Angels All Assault Marines List

Today I decided I wanted to make an all-assault Blood Angels list, for funsies.  I've been thinking about it conceptually for a while, trying to decide if I thought it was competitive or not.  In the end, I think it has the potential to be competitive, but well... I'll give more thoughts on it after I post the list up.

Finally Finished Painting... at least... this army. (pictures included!)

Well, after lots of hours painting on the stupid army, it's finally done.  Finished.  Complete.  For now.  Lots of ways to make it more competitive I think, but those'll have to wait til I get more money, lol.  I took a few pictures- let me know what you think :-)
