Well, after the epic clash of the Deathstars from my last post, I then played Murl's Deathguard with a slightly trimmed down GK list with the grand master & god squad left unchanged. Needless to say, Deathguard, which is usually a strong army, crumpled like tinfoil in the face of so much cheese. Indeed Murl's reaction to the realization that after so many shots that he'd only wounded a Paladin rather than killed one was worthy of a Youtube upload (were a video camera available). He had been considering going to a 40k tourney in Knoxville that's only a few weeks off, but said the hell with it if this is the kind of army he could expect to see there.
Way to go GW.
So feeling like a slimeball WAAC player, I'm trading off the god squad to our local cheeseball who's (unsurprisingly) starting a Draigowing army in return for a tau tank of some sort (yeah, yeah, shut up Screech). For whatever reason I've wanted to paint one of those for going on 6 months, yet have had no urge to buy one. So that works. Besides, the Tau rumors are intriguing. I'll keep Matt Fucking Ward (reducing him in rank to just a 'mere paladin') & go back to my original retinue horde with a handful of GK in support idea, that list worked fairly decent & made for a better game i think.
Next I got a few upgrades for my game room this Christmas.
First off are new stools on wheels. Its amazing at how hard these were to find for under $75 a piece. However Lowes came thru in the end, having them @ $30 each. Previously I was using my old & new desk chairs, and while comfy (more for one person than the other), they took up too much space. Especially if you didn't really want to sit down. The stools are low enough to roll under the game table if they're unwanted/in the way, yet still comfortable to sit on for the duration of a game.
Next up was an improvement in lighting.
