So this weekend the gaming club is having a cookout at my place. One of my buddies is coming over and he’s been SLOWLY putting together a Vanilla Marine list. But he’s not done. So I’ve offered up my wolves to him to use instead. We played one game of my list vs. my Tau and he pretty much tabled me… so he should have some fun with it… Since it’s kind of heavy on the firepower. but I shall be left without the wolves….
That being said, the idea of the weekend is not to get my ass handed to my by playing Tau (especially since I don’t have the models to make an effective build) So instead, I’ll be breaking one of my rules and playing my unfinished IG force. Now granted, it’s not optimized and I’ll need to do a lot to get it right… but it should allow me to put lots of tanks on the board.
After the post I wrote the other day on how to bleed some of the energy off of my list… I haven’t been settled about it…. Mostly, I feel a little sick at the prospect… Not because I think I have to WIN WIN WIN… but because I’m not sure playing down, even if it’s just in the list, will EVER help anyone… And lets face it, if the list was all that great, somebody else would have thought of it much earlier… BTW, I sent a copy of the list to Stelek, last week, so we’ll see if it makes the cut…
But tonight I shall finish the Walkure and have it ready to be loaded with troops….. (though it’s really a Vendetta…)
The 2K list will look like
Vendetta + something, Command squad, 4 melta vet squads in Chimeras, 3 Medusa Tanks, 3 Russessesss (battle cannon + Las) and 3 scout sentinels dressed up like Tauros Venators == Haven’t worked it out yet… Any suggestions about builds that incorporate that sort of thing? I have a unit that would work as Stormtroopers so that might be fun to drop out of the Vendetta… but the cost sucks (but in this case it might be OK due to the limitations of what I have)
And thanks to Dethtron, I’ve been on a German Opera kick recently…. Also, I’m kind of getting board painting Space Marines…. I think I need to mix it up a bit…. so tonight I’ll finish up my Valk.
In other news, here’s a wonderful Viking song for all you heathens….. it it doesn’t get the blood flowing… then you’re weird…
