Played with some Tau today...

And holy broken, haha!  I ran a 1500 point list that ran roughly like the following:

Daemons w/ Tau Allies:

Herald of Nurgle
Herald of Nurgle
20x Plaguebearers
9x Nurglings
Soul Grinder w/ Mark of Nurgle

Commander Farsight
12 Fire Warriors
Sun Shark Bomber

So that's excluding wargear, which there wasn't much of to be honest, and I only took Farsight because I bought him for his looks before reading the codex.  He is a great HQ in my opinion, but only if you're running his 7 Crisis Suit honor guard.

Anyways, a very brutal game against a 1500 point Dark Eldar Wych list.  I deployed second but stole the initiative, and left my Nurglings in the middle of the board as bait.  I then made a gun line with my Tau, and shot everything to hell.  The game was over at the beginning of turn three, and I have to say, I feel that Tau have some real shenanigans in their codex.  That Riptide is just BRUTAL.  Anyways, I'll post pictures up soon, so thanks for tuning in and catch me again later this week.

50k page views finally!

So yes, I hit 50k page views this morning, and to all of you out there, thank you so much!  I know I have been sporadic with my posting, but you guys keep me going!

As for what I have been up to, I recently bought a Zone Mortalis board, and it is INCREDIBLE!  I'm hoping to have it painted up soon, but we'll see how long it actually takes.  I also have pledged for two different Kickstarters, which are as follows:

Secret Weapon Miniatures has one going that I mentioned previously in which they are working to get games boards designed with matching bases, walls, and terrain.  It is an AMAZING project they are working on, and it will help my store look even better with all the different boards we will have for people to play on.  Below is a link, and if you can you should absolutely jump on top of this one.  It's a great opportunity to get these before they hit stores.

The other one I have jumped on board with has my inner child going nuts!  Growing up, I was a HUGE fan of Robotech and Macross, and now I can play out my wildest childhood fantasies on the table top.  Palladium Books, which previously has done great things with the Robotech RPG, is now putting out a 1/285th scale miniatures game.  Fret not with the scale, as the robots are so big that the miniatures are still larger than 40k Space Marines.  The Kickstarter has a lot to offer in the way of deals, so hop on this one to save yourself a lot of money in the future.  Click below to check it out, and there is also a video of their current rule set, which is still in play testing, being played out and discussed at Adepticon.

Anyways, I'll hopefully get more pictures up soon.  I finished a Maxmini Greater Plaguebringer that I finished painting, some Salamanders I am building for a 1000 point Zone Mortalis army, and even some German Tanks for a Late War Flames of War army I am putting together!  Those pictures will be up just as soon as I stop being lazy, haha.

Thanks again for everything you guys have done for me.  It really does mean a lot to have support of random people, and not just overly encouraging friends and family!

Secret Weapon Miniatures will be the death of me...

So if you have been a long time reader here, I have made it no small secret that I love this companies products.  Mr Justin does an AMAZING job with everything he and his company put their hands on, so when their Kickstarter went live, I knew I was going to be broke.  If you're looking for a higher quality and better priced board than what GW puts out, look no further!  Enough talking from me though, here is a link:

                                                   OMG!  A LINK!

So yeah, check them out and what not!  They're awesome!

So more pictures!

So here are some models I have worked on while at my work.  We have a Thursday group that meets every week, and we all sit around, sip on some beers, and paint!  It's a lot of fun, and it is actually helping quite a few people with their painting.  I don't have much time, so that will be all of the words for now, so check below the break to see more!
