The Road to WARGamesCon... The final days.

     Ever notice how with Berserkers it all turns into a big rugby scrum in the middle? At least that's how it seems to end up for my wife. Her berserkers charge forward, kill kill kill and then are left with either too few troops to withstand the resulting hail of incoming fire, or end up getting wiped out in combat. Just seems like that 3 up armor save isn't enough to keep the boys in business these days. This post titles mentions final days and serves a dual purpose. We're looking at the final days leading up to the 40k doubles tournament at WARGamesCon and we're looking at what appear to be the final days of my wife's Khorne Space Marines army in the field. At least until either CSM gets a new book, or 6th edition makes sweeping changes. Time will tell.

On the road again...

     It's time for another 1,000 point game. In my ongoing mission to find the right thousand points to field next to wife's tide of Khorne, I got another game under my belt this week with yet another new list. Depicted on the left is where our game was at about the middle of turn 3. We finally remembered, somewhere near the end of the sixth turn, that we were supposed to roll for random game length at the end of the 5th. So with a roll of 1 on the dice, the game that was shaping up to become a 6-turn draw promptly rolled back to 5-turn draw instead.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you spice up a game of Deathwatch. Who knew traffic cones would make such great hats?

The Road to WARGamesCon...

We've hit the 1 month out mark on the 40k doubles tournament my wife and I will be attending at WARGamesCon. Looking quite forward to it, even if I will be helping a friend move into a new apartment the day before. Ah. the joys of truck ownership. Heh. As the day nears, we've managed to get a few good 1,000 point games in with our armies against some local folks, but haven't yet put the two together for a 2,000 point game since last year.

To Infinity... or at least WARGamesCon

So here comes the Next Big Thing™. Now that Alamo 40k is over, our eyes turn toward the event we'll be attending in July, WARGamesCon.
