As you can see below, I received my box of little blue men on sprues this past Friday.
After counting them all up & leaving good feedback, the assembly line process began. This will be the first tactical squad with the silver helmed marine being the sergeant. Pretty boring really, but then again, pretty quick & easy to paint so far as well. As such, they're proceeding as intended. Amusingly, I saw several of these type of ML marines at the tournament that I went to yesterday. They were unpainted and screamingly bright amongst their Angels Sanguine brethren.
Speaking of that tournament...
Heh, my dice said 'No way buddy, not this time!' Indeed even my opponent Chad was apologizing for onslaught of ones & twos my dice were handing me by the second turn. Oh well, some damage was done before the game came to its inevitable conclusion. I managed to claim one of the three objectives at least. Of course, given that I was using the newly gifted Corsairs, and after the game I went to spend my gift card from winning the last time, no sympathy was to be had for me. So when I return there in 2 weeks there will be a Razorback waiting for me to pick up. In the end, I later heard (we had already left to & get some dinner) that Madival 's cheese whiz list split first place with the above mentioned Angels Sanguine, so congrats to him! That's 1st place tie #2 for the Tri-Cities guys!
