Game Two

Game two.  Dawn of War and Capture + Control

Playing against Chaos, 2 Lash Princes, 3 10-man marine squads in rhinos, 5-man squad of marines, 3X2 oblits, squad of three bikes

First Game!

So my first game is against Sallieman, who was also my ride to the event!

His list:

Pitched Battle, Annihilation.  Table has some ruins in the middle and a few hills.  Pretty open :D

So he won the roll to go first.  Deploying war walkers in the ruins near his side.

Setting up his skimmers around the ruins.  I plan on deploying my tanks to one side and setting up the loganstar to give them cover.  His jetbikes are on my left, I think I will setup opposite to that side.

Setup in a line with the wolfblob, logan attached to long fangs.  Did not steal the initiative.

Hello to all! (+Live Blogging)

Hey there everyone,

My username is Refyougee and I've been asked to contribute to this great blog - I've contributed here once before with my initial review of the Blood Angels Codex and I hope to continue doing so with the the GK Codex that is in the pipes.

I've been gaming for roughly ten years, starting the the now-defunct Wizkids games Mage Knight and MechWarrior Dark Age;  I now play 40K and Warmachine, with a focus on Space Wolves, Grey Knights and Cryx.  I'd describe my play style as semi-competitive, something which I will expand upon later :)

But that's enough for introductions.  Today is the 40K Tournament at Game Summit, a fantastic event that happens 1-2 times a year.  I've entered my Space Wolves in the tourney and plan on liveblogging the games as best as possible.  I'm new to the whole thing so don't expect perfection.

Anywho here's the list I brought:

Logan Grimnar

2X Dreadnought with 2 Twin-Linked Autocannons

3X Wolf Guard X3 with Las/Plas Razorback
Wolf Guard X5, 1 with Terminator Armour and Cyclone Missile Launcher, Las/Plas Razorback
Wolf Guard X5, Terminator Armour X4, Wolf Claw X2, Chainfist, Cyclone Missile Launcher

Land Speeder with Multi-Melta/Heavy Flamer
Land Speeder with Multi-Melta/Heavy Flamer

2X Predator with Lascannon Sponsons
Long Fangs X6, Missile Launcher X5

The lone terminator joins up the long fangs, and idea of the list is target saturation/heavy shooting with a CC bubble of the termies and Grimnar :)

Here's hoping that things go well!

Seeing you guys later,

Dragon Forge Design

Today I have a small sample of Dragon Forge bases that I will be reviewing. Jeff Wilhelm is the owner and operator of Dragon Forge Design.

The detail on these bases is amazing. The sculpting is very sharp, and shows that Jeff is very skilled. These bases are amazing and require no explaining! Crisp detail, no flash, sharp edges! 

The designs that I have are cobblestone, deck plating, and some ruins. They fit their theme very well and are different enough that across and army, you wouldn't be bored them them. The resin used to cast these have a very plastic feel, and don't chip easy. I took a few and tossed them decently good, and no damage was done!

10/10 indeed here!
