Shoot, forgot to post 2 Bat Reps

Here we go, these were from last week. Enjoy





Apparently Ive been using the Narthecium wrong, I can't use it if the model with it is in combat. However, he can be in any squad, so I might put the Narth in a squad that would hang back behind my command squad.

Also, no video for it, but I played Deathwing again vs Dark Eldar Wrack, Wych Raider Ravager spam. And won somehow. Wyches have been massively toned down since previous book.. I got triple charged and lived.

Flames of War!

Hey all,

Just dropping a quick note to let you all know that we are starting into Flames of War and coverage will begin on the site in the next week or two. So stay tuned for battle reports, modeling, lists etc.

We are also ramping up for the 40k Tournament at Game Summit 2011. As a feeder tournament for Las Vegas, a lot is one the line and our armies are going to be built up to 1850pts. More info about Game Summit can be found here:


* For clarification, I do not represent Game Summit, this is just a link to the event.

200th Post, 2 VIDEOS!!!!

Well I had a truly EPIC game of 40k over at Orbital's on Thursday. Tried out my Deathwing at 1850 for February's Game Summit Tournament, and he was using his tried and true dual foot council list (Video Battle Report 10 I think vs my Nids)

Enough Jibber Jabber, watch it.. Its in two parts because this game was so Epic.



I guess Eldar will just have to wait a while...

'Cause Sobergamer's got a brand new thing going on:

Lurking Sucks...

Ok so I am about to stop lurking on my own blog and begin posting. I've very recently purchased a new home with my fiance and we move in this week!

Yes I have my own hobby room, it will be soon upgraded with a couple desks and a lot of shelves :)

Pics of the new fangled hobby room will come next week, and some pics of my recently completed valkyries!

For now though I'll sit back and see what new goodies my compatriots mare working on...

Night Lords 1st Company

So, for Game Summit 2011 I am planning on taking Deathwing.. Pre Heresy Night Lords Deathwing.. with my all RTB01 termies no less. But the biggest thing stopping me was figuring out how to make Pre heresy shoulder pads. Ive seen plenty of tutorials on how to make them.. for the new plastic termies, loyal and chaos.. but nothing for models that have their shoulder pads already on... So today I hit up Hobby House and found some tubing and thin plastic stripping. Here is how they look.. keep in mind, the models are getting repainted, most of them are second hand, but the company standard is staying, its from my old command squad. Still need to rivet the shoulders, but Ill do them in batches of 10 models using the white glue drop method.

Video Battle Report: Eldar vs Black Templars

So, a bit of info here.. Last week saw Lothlann try out Necrons, but in true fashion, has already switched armies, and decided on Black Templars. Not only that, he ACTUALLY GOT A CODEX and some BT models.. so maybe we will see this army come to life for real!?! I am using my old 1500 pt str 6 heavy list from way back. I need to find room for more long range anti tank, 2 twin bright lances just isn't cutting it.

About the Video, yes there are some turns missing, some files were corrupted. The only thing of note was at the end, in Turn 6, he tank shocked my Fire Dragons who promptly rolled a Box Cars for ldr test, and fled off the board. Loth pointed out that they could reroll that test, but it turns out I need an Exarch with TankHunters skill for that. Its ok, because reviewing the video, the rhino had been blown up by those same Fire Dragons in turn 3!! Revenge of the Ghost Rhino!

He forgot to even deploy 2 speeders, which evens out the above.

Lastly, we had an interesting …

Tentacles, Eyeballs, Wave Serpent!

With all this "new army" work going on, I decided to take a break from my Nids and Night Lords, and work on my Crone World Eldar.

I finally have a vehicle done, the Farseer will probably ride on this, keeping an "Eye" on things from inside :)

Orks in Progress

So, Orks it is. I have officially started an Ork army! So far I have assembled 40 boyz, 3 Deff Copters, a unit of Nobz and a Warboss. I have also started building some custom vehicles for the lads to tour around in. First up is a rokkit buggy I made as a prototype out of a deff copter and some bits - I plan to make a full unit of 3 all similar. Take a look:

The first trukk was built from scraps. I had to build the frame, mounts and all, from plasticard and whatever I can find :

Last up the the 2nd trukk, which may or may not become a battlewagon, depending on how my attempts to build one using a Bane Blade hull turns out. Stay tuned for the work with the Bane Blade hull!

PS. I welcome all comments and suggestions for improvement to my creations, I am open to any/all crazy ideas!
CA$H out.
