Apathy Runs Rampant for 'Ard Boyz (well... for me at least)

Well folks, just a quick one.  'Ard Boyz Semi-Finals is today, and I'm lucky it's only like a 5 minute drive from my house.  Otherwise, I would actually consider missing it.

As it is, I somewhat doubt that I'll do very well.  I only just recently read the missions, and before that, I've done absolutely zero prep/thinking about it.  I haven't played the Wolves since last 'Ard Boyz a month ago, and whereas I'm pretty confident in my ability to play them well regardless, I'm sure a certain amount of rust will show itself at some point  :-p 

Not to mention that I'm not changing a single thing in my list.  I had previously decided to change my Rune Priest's powers from Jaws + Tempests to Living Lightning + Tempests.  I was also going to add a couple storm shields to my Thunderwolves.  However, I accidentally started printing my old list without the revision and... I just shrugged at let it keep going.  Meh.

I looked on our meetup, and it looks like at least one guy is driving (flying?) all the way down from New Mexico.  Guess it's technically "up", but... whatever.  Mapquest tells me that from Albuquerque to Fort Collins is a 7 hour, 39 minute drive.  That guy is either chomping at the bit for a road trip, or he's got a list he's super confident in- even getting 2nd isn't worth it money-wise (well, it wouldn't be to me anyways).

Whatever his motivations, the fact remains that him and likely 20 or more other people attending this event want to win more than me.  Well, maybe not want it more, but they're certainly more willing to put in at least a modicum of effort to win. 

So, here's to an apathetic 'Ard Boyz Semi-Finals.  I hope I win :-p

Burnt out

Well folks, after a week of inactivity, I've come to the conclusion that I'm quite burnt out. Ard boyz followed by 14 games at the Nova, followed by 8 games at Tacticon have left me demotivated to make a huge effort, blog-wise.

I'll be back soon I'm sure, with all the batreps, etc. Sorry for keeping you waiting. Best not to force it right now tho, as its sposed to be for fun after all, right? :-)

Tacticon is over...

Well folks, Tacticon is done and over.  5 games of 40k followed by 3 games of Fantasy resulted in a mostly enjoyable weekend, with mostly enjoyable opponents and armies :)

I took lots of pictures, and reports will be coming for them as soon as I get done with my 13 Nova reports (which I'll go work on in a minute, as soon as I'm done with this post).

My results were as follows:

Off to Tacticon

Well guys, got another con to go to tomorrow.  I realize it's been less than a week since the Nova, but Tacticon waits for no man.

Lists for both the 40k and Fantasy events follow!

Paint Score Fail

Don't worry folks, I'm still pluggin' away at the Batreps from the Nova.  Results for the event itself are finally up, and, well... gotta say it's a pretty disappointing result for me in the Paint department.  Like, I actually feel insulted.

Here's the link.  I'm very close to the bottom of Page 2.  As in, my army got a below average painting score. 

Don't get me wrong, I don't think it's the most amazing army ever.  Not by a long shot. It's just...
