Random Blood Angels List

BoLSCON is tomorrow (I'm leaving for it tonight) but instead of more (mostly) incoherent rambling on my expectations, I instead figured I'd post up a BA list I've been playing around with.  Here it is:

BoLSCON: Pre-Tournament Thoughts

On Wednesday, I'll be leaving with a few friends to drive down to sunny (which isn't really very relevant, since we'll be inside the whole time) Austin, TX for Wargames Con.  Last year was a blast, and I really hope this year is as fun.  To add to the excitement, they tacked on an extra one-day tournament (for me, Warmachine/Hordes) on Friday, so that by the end of the weekend, I'll have played 12 total games.  Burned out is going to be a great way to put it :)

This Tournament Looks Awesome

The Nova Open

I wish I could go... but I'm spending the money to go to BoLSCON, which was an awesome time last year.  Plus, it's already full, and yadda yadda.  Next year though, I'd like to go.  This is in my mind the way a tournament should be, with minor wins still being counted as wins (and actually meaning something more than a 'strong draw'), instead of preferring to massacre two games and lose one vs. getting 3 minor wins.

The (lackluster?) Warriors of Chaos

Like I've been saying, lots of thinking about Warriors of Chaos has been going on lately for me.  Lots of lists, and lots of tweaks to them, before I've even played a single game of Fantasy in 8th.

A Random Warmachine Tournament

Last weekend my gaming store held a qualifying tournament for the impending 'Clash for Colorado' which is a tournament that happens every 6 months, with each gaming club sending their top 5 players to compete.  I figured I'd throw down, despite the fact that I've hardly played in the past 3 or 4 months.  Tournaments are always fun to attend, and I figured since I'd never tried a Steamroller format tournament, it could be cool.  Plus, then I might be able to qualify for the actual 'big' tournament later this summer.

Fantasy and Dark Elves, revisited

Today I've decided not to talk about impending BoLSCON or Warriors of Chaos like I said I might talk about, and instead keep plugging away at my Dark Elf army, since Tacticon is in September, and I need to try to get it as 8th-ready as I can before I actually go.

More 8th Ed. Fantasy Musing

Well, despite all the models I still *really* need to paint for upcoming BoLSCON (heh, I heard they renamed it Wargames con now, for some reason?  How dumb.  I'll still call it BoLSCON... cuz that's what it is) I've been playing around with Fantasy lists a lot.  Not just Dark Elves, but *gasp* Warriors of Chaos.  The Warriors of Chaos will be discussed in my next post, I think.

There and back again- A gamers tale

So, I'm back, and I'll be posting more frequently now that the World Cup is dying down and BoLSCON approaches.  Lots of things to talk about, I'm not sure I want to tackle it all with this one article tho.  Among the things I want to talk about are my Wolves, and the new Warhammer: Fantasy rules (and how they'll affect my Dark Elves).
