GK's a list finally

So first off I want to point out that there appears to be a faction of people that are angry when you start a new army? Not exactly sure why? When I decided I would start another army and picked GK's I had several people I talk to get all angry face on me? So I gotta ask what's with the hate? I had people give me crap for starting a power gaming army? Telling me that I shouldn't make the jump... these are IG and SW players mind you so I really don't see how even if that was my goal that they have any room to talk. LOL people are funny. =P

Gk some initial progress

So I took the time to do a rough up of the first Razorback of many. Since I am planning to run Coteaz I will of course need several of these things, but I normally like to do a test model to get a idea of what I am doing and how hard/easy it will be to do several of them. I decided I wanted to add some iconography instead of having to hand paint them on so this is what I have so far.

Cool Mini or Not 11.39

Hopefully everyone is having a great weekend so far. =) Let's take a look a the updates from Cool Mini or Not. As always there is some great stuff back on the shelf and if you need more information please head over to the cool mini or not website.

Forgeworld IA Apocalypse Second Edition and Imperial Emplacement

Forgeworld is very quickly doing their best to sell Gamesday tickets and to be the entire front page on my blog. Between them and work it seems like its all I can do to keep up with the releases lol. We have two more items to show off though let's take a look.

Imperial Armour Apocalypse Second Edition

"This book substantially updates and expands the first edition of Imperial Armour Apocalypse with 32 new entries, and is packed with over 90 Apocalypse datasheets for Legendary units such as the mighty Crassus Armoured Assault Transport to the fell Daemon Lords of Chaos. Also included are new Forge World units for Warhammer 40,000 including the Contemptor Pattern Dreadnought and its variants, and the Dark Eldar Tantalus.

This 128 page, full-colour hardback book provides comprehensive and updated descriptions and rules for using all of Forge World’s recent additions to its model range in your games of Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer 40,000 Apocalypse. Within you’ll also find new Apocalypse battle missions to play including ‘The Lion and the Hawk’, ‘Shattered City’ and ‘Fortress Assault’, as well as lots of new options and background to enhance your game"

Imperial Emplacement

"Designed as an emplacement for almost any size of Warhammer 40,000 vehicle, from Chimeras and Leman Russ to Macharius and Malcador-based super heavy tanks, and even the mighty Baneblade, the Imperial Emplacement features a wealth of detail such as ammunition stowage, unexploded munitions, a targeting cogitator and an observer’s position. The base of the Imperial Emplacement has been reinforced with trench plates to act as duckboards, and the scenery piece also features plenty of space for crew models as well as vehicles."

Forgeworld Deimos Pattern Rhino and Relic Contemptor Dreadnought

Forgeworld news flash out again, and if you haven't seen yet they have three new items also being offered at Gamesday. Let's take a look below.

Relic Contemptor Dreadnought

"Given the rarity of the Contemptor-pattern chassis, it is not uncommon for those Chapters blessed enough to count these ancient war machines amongst their arsenal to embellish their armoured sarcophagus with scripture, honour scrolls and additional details to commemorate the heroism and indomitable valour of the Ancient enshrined within."

Mk1c Deimos Pattern Rhino

"The ubiquitous Rhino Armoured Personnel Carrier is a mainstay of the Space Marine Chapters, and has been in continuous use for ten thousand years. Its true origins are more distant still, and ancient records mention the RH1-N-0 Tracked Exploration and Multi-Purpose Defence Vehicle STC accompanying explorator missions during Mankind’s Golden Age. Re-armed and re-purposed for military use, the Rhino has remained a mainstay of the Imperium’s might over the millennia since."

Tamurkhan - The Throne of Chaos

"This book retells the brutal conquests and bloody battles of the Chaos Warlord Tamurkhan and his horde in their quest to attain the favour of the Dark Gods. In this 208 page, full-colour, hardback book you will find: the saga of Tamurkhan the Maggot Lord, lavishly illustrated and darkly detailed; an extensive bestiary section and a campaign system allowing you to fight the battles of Tamurkhan’s horde in games of Warhammer.
The book also contains The Legion of Azgorh, a fully playable Chaos Dwarf Army list,  as well as rules for playing massive battles with forces drawn from all the different Chaos Army books.

Printed on high quality paper, which gives an amazing depth to the full colour artwork, each page is richly embellished with finely detailed illustrations. Full colour maps reveal never-before-seen vistas of the landscape and geography of the Warhammer world. The hardback, leather-effect binding, embossed with gold lettering, has been designed to emulate the faded binding of an arcane tome, down to the inclusion of the classic red silk-effect page marker"

40k Brain dump

Random post of just things going on for me. I don't normally do a ton of "this is your life" posts like other bloggers do but sometimes it's warranted I think. Sometimes you just need to brain dump all the nonsense in your head and see what it looks like and this is a good place to dump my 40k nonsense.

ForgeWorld Dark Eldar Tantalus and Land Raider Proteus

Two more models or sneak peaks that you can pick up at GamesDay. It seems like Forgeworld is on a quest to give us reasons to go to GamesDay next year. I have no problem with that.

Ahhh that new army smell

So as you can see I have started the journey towards building a new army so that I too can push around some metal boxes of safety. The reason to start a new army hits each of us for various reasons but I think its time I grow as a player and try something new that has some more options than my other two books I play. I figure this way I can use all that I have learned and maybe even make it pretty and have a shot at some painting prizes..( I won't hold my breathe though lol) I have decided to build some GK's for a number of reasons. There is something about knowing that you most likely won't lose to your primary army while playing your new army lol. I think I will always be a demon player first. However being a newer codex that involves power armor I am also hoping the army will stand the test of time as we transition into 6th edition. Because I don't know about you guys but I can't afford to play the flavor of the month over and over again.

So expect some GK growing pains while I go through the motions of exploring the codex and deciding what I like and don't like. (My club is already dealing with my ability to make like 100's of lists just to get opinions and see what builds work and don't) Although I think aside from some minor tweaking the codex really favors certain builds which is GW's way with things. My list and some thoughts as well as updates as the models come together all in the near future.

So wish me luck and stop in to read my trial and share yours about Grey Knights or just about whatever new project you are working on currently. Comments and feedback are always welcome.

Nova Open Day two quick run downs

Day one I toughed it out and made my goal of 3-1. If you missed my run downs of that day you can find it here. Day two I wonder down to the hall and find out that I am in bracket 3. The people from the day before have been broken down into 16 brackets and going 3-1 I made 3. I was short on battle points of making it into the 2nd bracket. It's ok, I suppose if I could go 3-1 again it would be pretty good but I would really be happy with 2-2 today for several reasons. First off I am completely tired, I stayed up too late the two days I have been here already and I will admit that the day before kicked my butt. 4 games in one day while rushing around was a tough day I was pretty mentally tired personally. I also have no plan at all today, I am just here lol. I really think past my day one goal. I decide to let the first game set the tone of how the day might go. Also my apologies I didn't take any pictures day two.

Nova open day one quick game run downs.

So I trek across the country to boldly go where no one in my gaming group has gone before.. I then also set out to have fun and bring Demons to what turned out to be the most competitive event I have ever been too. So let's say I may have sat the bar a little high for being not a vet of the hobby to say the least. However I learned a ton which might have seemed obvious to you guys who have been playing this game for much longer than me. Now I will admit that I am super busy so I don't have time to practice or really comb over things as greatly as I should lol. So let's get into my games and my random list of WTF.

Happy holiday weekend to all of you in the states. I hope its been a great one so far, and to all of you reading not in the states I hope your weekend has been just as awesome.
