So Lisburn are kicking off their next league, and I cannot wait!! I’ve signed up as guard for the obvious reasons and notice so far I'm the only one playing them... awesome I’m a minority again!

Experimental Blob hybrid list first draft

I was musing over making a partial mech list which centred on Blobs and added in some heavy support and finally ended up with this list for a first draft. Not the best I'll be honest but it actually looks like there could be potential.

Warpcon tomorrow. Board the landers men for tonight we dine in the car!! (On the way down)

So Warpcon starts tomorrow and I'm heading down with Rowan 'Reroller' Sherridan, hes kindly offered to drive because my car is about as practical as paper underpants during wetting yourself... (Thanks Rowan). Looking forward to this and as soon as Rowan reads this no doubt he'll begin to regret it.

The new HQ's thanks to the FAQ?

Sitting looking through my guard codex the other night and I still got lost in how many good unit options there is in that book. I think I noticed at least 2 unique unit types I wanted to begin reviewing in all the sections. Then I remembered the FAQ changes which lets the techpriest and priests become your mandatory HQ’s and tried to figure out when they would be useful for an army more than a CCs or a Lord commissar... So far I’ve not found a situation.

Blob Guard Choices: Artillery & AA

So moving on to the final heavy support choices, the Artillery (Including Hydras)... each one of these adds a different element to your army, so which in my opinion work in Blob lists?

Death squads: Stop the Launch!

So as mentioned I got to play a game of Death Squads over Christmas, and decided to do one of the themed missions continuing on with my squad after my match in Lisburn with Ciaran. With the extra funds I bought a replacement guy for my one who died, and decided to theme it up a bit to add a Harker type add-on as well as the two priests I just finished for my blob guard as it was already stacked against the team.

Creating a ‘Competitive’’ list for 40k, how’s it done?

Actually it’s much simpler than most people think... while it does require the payer to be ruthless in their points spending and it is straight forward enough to allow most players to come out with a solid basis to work from. I’ll use codex marines as an example first (I thought they'd help me get my points across easier than a guard list as their the usual beginners army it seems).

Any requests? and pictures of priests.

So as a quick post today I'm wanting to know if there is anything Readers want covered in the next few articles or if not I'll continue on my random path of throwing up a mix.

Heading to Warpcon. Hum now what do I take?

So after many pesterings from Rowan I'm now going to Warpcon, tickets booked (Thanks Rowan) and my transport now sorted for getting down to the event (Thanks Rowan) I'm planning my list. I think for certain I'll bring the Blob out again, it proved so much fun at Arkham, but now the problem... 1850 points... hum 100 more points to play with... interesting...

Blob guard list on the cheap...ish

Wanting to make a Blob guard list can really be daunting, even for a painting sicko like myself. the number of bodies, weapons and such compared to most other armies can really pile up... and I know this first hand after having 152 models in a 1750 point list, an that includes heavy weapon teams as 1 model! and with Ireland's point levels going up to 1850 to work alongside the ETC it could get even bigger...

I'm Back! and what I got up to over Christmas.

After my Christmas break... which I don't believe was 10 days as it went far too quickly!! I’m back to blogging. Now to get back into the swing of things and remember how to keep writing articles... The break was well needed and allowed me to get quite a bit of game related and real life related stuff done.
