General Update

GenghisCon 2011 is less than two weeks away, so I have ramped up the amount of models I'm painting daily to ensure my 1850 pt Tyranid list gets finished before the tournament. I won't be changing my list all that much from the Tacticon version, but the good news is that my playtest games have gone fairly well.

Also, I have made part one of the final purchase of stuff for my Blood Angels, and here's what's on it's way:
  • 2 Stormravens
  • 2 Furioso Dreadnought kits
  • 2 Razorbacks
  • 3 Baal Predators
  • Lemartes
  • Astorath the Grim
I already have two Furiosos and two Baal Predators, but what this order will allow me to do is field six predators (three regular and three Baal) and be able to switch between Furiosos, Furioso Librarians, and Death Company Dreads. How I'm going to make the Dreadnought parts interchangeable is another story...

And now on to Fantasy. My club has been successfully running 500 point games of Fantasy for our Escalation League over the last few weeks. While several people (including myself) have yet to paint their minis, we have at least had regular attendance. The week after the con, we are upping the points level to 1,000, and we are also introducing Magic without the 6th-level spells (for now). I learned a lot playing against a Lizardmen player who was running Temple Guard and Sauruses, and I plan to have more of a tooled-up force to be able to combat builds like that.

In other news, I made FIVE MORE YouTube videos a few weeks ago so make sure you check them out at www.youtube.com/sonsofsanguinius.

Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for update pictures of my Tyranids!


  1. Sounds epic dude! It'll be cool too see your 'nids all painted up :) I've been playing around with a different Wolf list for a while and have come to the conclusion that it just won't work in a big event like this.

    Instead, I'm going to bring essentially the same list I did last time. See ya there!

  2. Well thanks dude! Yeah, I can't wait for the tournament. I might not have my bugs 100% done by then but they'll be close. And I'll definitely be on the lookout for your wolves!
