I have been stuck in Nashville for 2 days. My flight got canceled on Sunday, then Monday, and finally I got out and back to work on Tuesday. So that means I have to work on Thursday to cover the Monday I couldn't work as well as cover some time from getting in late. I know exciting stuff eh?
A quick announcement - I will be at FTW Games (Aka Spikey Bits) on June 2nd thru June 5th for their "Birthday" Celebration. I will be drawing on bags, throwing down with dice, and even playing a little bit of Magic if I feel like it. I know the Gaming Renaissance Goat Man. So come out and say hi. I'll be drawing on bags for $25.00 bucks a piece as well as doing other random and interesting art things for those interested.
Well if you knew about the ATC championship as the Siege then you know the team I was one - WreckingBOLS - ended up taking the win home. It was a lot of fun even in the heat and I will be there next year for sure. I wasn't the biggest fan of my army as I feel my Space Goats need to be put up for awhile but I still had fun. I played versus a DE where I got spanked (making lots of 5+ flicker field saves during a Dawn of War mission does not equal a win). I then played Tau and beat up on them. Next I threw down versus Grey Sparks and his Foot Eldar and lost (bad set up on my part and lazy playing as well as Greg being a kick ass player). I then had a rematch versus the CSM player from when I won the championship at Adepticon and lost a close game (I would immobilized with a glance but only roll a one with the pens). I then played Aaron from Da Boyz and he was with Nids versus my dual JaWS/ML list and I won that one. From there I played Brian Pool from the Wrecking Crew and won against his Dual Lash list (bad reserve rolling for Brian as I slowly chewed him apart). All in all I did well with a 0, 25, 10, 25, 25,20 for the final points amount for my day. Good times indeed.
The best thing about the event is that I had fun with all my games. I think the idea that losing a game doesn't get you kicked out of winning means you get a lots less "built up" with needing to crush people. That is how I felt. I had no bad games, no bad sportsmanship stuff, and would play everyone again. Good times and I think everyone should think about going. I just hope Shane has AC next year as it was miserable hot (I'm from Texas and no AC is grounds for going after the hotel management).
While I was there I drew on a crap ton of bags. In fact here are the things I drew out for people. If you want one the cost is a flat $25.00 when you meet me at an event and if you want me to draw on one at home - the cost is just $25.00 plus the cost of shipping it to me (so I can ship it back). Fun times. Here they are to check out.
And finally some better Monkey Dreadknight PIcs.
Oh and my "plans" for the week.
Warboss for HOA - Built and primed and might be done tonight
Ork Boyz for HOA X 20
CSM Rhino #1
CSM Rhino #2
Grey Knight Strike Squad Test Figure (got a cool idea, going to try it - woohoo!)
That is what my brain is going to do - most likely I will be doing more. I had a hell of a week last week and hopefully this week will be better. I might be traveling again not this weekend but the next - so be prepared for an announcement about that. Thursday I want to explore some Grey Knight list as that is my next goto army for Events.
