another address

Right now I'm 11 games into warhammer fantasy last Sunday was the 1500 point fantasy tournament. I placed 2nd. how could that be well first I took a very gun line dwarf army and It seemed to be my lucky day, but what I can tell you is that I had only one block melee unit which was hammerers.

Everything else was ranged except my rune priest(which hide must of the time) and a basic dragon slayer. So I had at least two melee units helping every thing else in combat and at most three. I faced night goblins, savage orks, and lizard men in that order.

The first and last game I won(night goblins and lizard men). I lost horribly against the orks. The tactic was simple for all three games weaken them with shooting than have hammerers with my thane eat them up. it didn't always work that way but at least the hammerers got into combat every game.

The reason this is so amazing to me is becuase mostly everyone in my gaming group has a few years of warhammer fantasy under their belt.

Anyway onto painting. It's has been slow progress but I have gone though a whole can of white primer and pretty much everything is ready for paint. It's just a matter of time tell I get enough time to start making a large amount of progress.

That's it for now so See ya next time.

The hobby address

So I said I would do this Friday but Friday isn't my best day so i'll make a regular segment on Saturday.

But that segment is going to be more than text. I hope to make it like a podcast, so the content would vary but I will probably talk about tactics( i'll also address IG tactics the first couple of times) and other small things.

Well as soon as I figure out how to put mp3 files on my blog and allow them to stream. Any suggestions or help would be nice.

But lets get to the address.

40k is going well with painting progress at a steady rate.

Fantasy is going quite different painting is a bit slow but I'm entering tourneys like a mad man in hopes of building my experience with the system.

Space Wolves- since i'm pretty much dropping them I woun't be doing much for them but I'm still holding on to my blood claws so I'll get them done and maybe a long fang pack too.

As for which great company they come from I decided Gunnar Red Moon's company is very fitting for my wolves.

IG- well not much progress on them but i am getting closer to actually making them my own. I just need a symbol for them as a whole. I'll continue looking for it though.

Blood Angels- getting there I'll continue to work fast and hard on them.

Dwarfs- slow but that is how it works when your full speed on another project but at least I'm getting lots of games in with them.

High Elves- white primer, that's pretty much what i need for them in order to make painting progress other wise they just sit on my painting table with my other projects.

Tau- With their paint scheme selected progress can now begin so i would expect some tau in the future.

That covers almost every thing I'm doing hobby related but I am doing some tradeing with a good friend of mine so I am going to have some really nice models soon.
