I came across this article and found it useful. I’m not a very competitive player myself, nor am I really excellent at list building so there are some great tips in here that I know I need to apply. Since the writer Andrew, has multiple GT wins under his belt and I have a trophy for ‘Best Sportsman’ I figured he’d be a good source for information on how to make a list competitive. Enjoy! (more…)
For the 200th post of this blog (yup I said 200!) I wanted something special. I tossed around some ideas in my head but nothing really struck me as noteworthy. Someone pitched an idea at me to mirror my ‘look ahead’ previous post and that was a look back at where/what my armies have been. That’s right… special is me!
(Also, I looked back and found no official introduction post for myself…)
The Imperial Guard / Astra Militarum have been my ‘back burner’ army for a very, very long time.

In her quest to add some points to the Fate of Konor campaign via painting, Red decided to put together three Harlequin Death Jesters.

After several weeks of running Astra Sororitas / Sisters of Battle for the Fate of Konor campaign I was ready to get back to my love – Eldar. I have several little bins with ‘to-do’ projects in them, all sitting on a shelf in an organized fashion. Three of them were just in need of having the bases done. After months of seeing them, it finally dawned on me that I had a theme ready to have a list built around it!
