My boyz are done!

So I have built the 7 slugga & choppa boyz, 2 rokkit boys, 1 big shoota boy and 26 shoota boyz! This brings me up to the full compliment that I need for my army. Now all that remains are the lootas, bikers and wagon!

GW Annapolis

I introduced myself to the folks at my local Games Workshop in Annapolis, MD. The staff there are really friendly, and their store is pretty respectable, with 4 or 5 full sized tables. They also seem well organized, with a good listing of events.

I also went ahead and splurged by getting myself the ork megabattle box. This will give me my full ork force of 1750 (minus a painboy) I will be starting a project log detailing the full construction of my force. This will be my first army that will be built and painted from scratch, so I am stoked about it.

Goodbye to Gobstyks

I had to say goodbye to Gobstyks last night. They were a great club, with many patient gamers willing to take the time to help a new 40K player learn the ropes. Unfortunately I got tied up with work and was not able to make it for my game. It was supposed to be against the fellow who was the first opponent I had at the club, and it would have been interesting to be able to play against him as my closing match.

I did get to check out some interesting matches that were entertaining watch. Dark Eldar vs. a 3 Valk/3 Russ list that ended up being a very very close match, with DE just pulling off the win, and Tyranids chomping all over some unfortunate old school Space Wolves.

Some of the Vets that I went to Warhammer World with a couple of weekends ago hooked me up with some Gobstyks dice and a club pin, which will look great on my bag...thanks guys!

All I can hope is that I am lucky enough to find a club as good as the one I am leaving when I get to the states!

GW Lincoln Vets Night

I played a 1750 game tonight against some Ultra Marines with my valiant Charlie Company. It ended up being a draw, mostly due my inability to take out his Whirlwind Tank, and the massive damage it was able to inflict on my objective holding veteran squad. My Executioner did well in its first game (taking out multiple terminators and other troops), and my flamer veteran squad was able to prove itself yet again to pull off the draw! I also picked up a commissar, as I am thinking of running either a lord commissar as my HQ or as a commissar in one of my mobile veteran squads to add some serious punching power.
