Jawaballs Selloff

Those of you who follow 40k blogs are probably familiar with Jawaballs (Chris).  He is doing a big selloff to raise a little $$$ to put towards a house.

Help a 40k brother out:

Dark Eldar is spoken for :-)  I snatched it all up, but he still has alot of stuff left.

So I'm really addicted to Terminators.  They're awesome models, a ton of fun, and in specific situations when used correctly they pwn. 

Some highlights of my top Three favorite Terminator moments.

3.  Drop Pod Done Wrong (fail moment, epic funny!)
So early in my gaming, I loaded up 5 Assault Terms in a droppod, and then proceeded to drop them right in front of a Chaos Castle.. Havoks, Plague Marines, CSM all bubble wrapping a Defiler.  Hey we were noobs without vehicles... that Battlecannon sucked when your on foot.

Yes, I have pictures of that Epic n00b Fail moment!

Prior to getting shot to pieces!  3++ is good, T4 and 1 wound.. isn't.

So yea I learned a valuable lesson in, not being able to assault the turn you arrive.. how NOT to allocate wounds, and that a massed amount of Bolter fire can kill Terms.  Given enough dice to roll for saves.. you will roll ones.

There was a saving grace to this moment..  With the two terms left that didn't run away, I was assaulted by the CSM's.  I only caused ONE wound!  That's bad rolling... HOWEVER, I won combat by .. you guessed it one wound, CSM proceeded to fail their leadership roll (boxcars), and proceeded to run 11" .. yeup, right off the board ;-)  Hilarious moment, Noobhammer Gang will not soon forget.

2.  Getting it Right
So against the guys I play, I got bored of running Rune Priest, Grey Hunter, etc.  I threw Logan and some terms in a Land Raider Redeemer.  Fighting a close Annihilation game against Joe's nids.  He kept his Mawlok under ground to prevent giving up a VP.  It was that close.  His warriors, genestealers and Broodlord were already in my backfiled eating thru Long Fangs...  Turn 5, my LRR is finaly there...  I rolled up, Flamestorm, Heavy Flamer, Assualt... fin.

They freakin wiped EVERYTHING!  The awesomesauce!

1. Droppod Done Right!
Same game against Joe's nids (see moment 2. Getting it Right).  It was our first game at 1850 points.  That's ALOT of bugs, and Joe was trying out the Swamlord for the first time.  Spearhead deployment, he hides the SwarmLord behind a Trygon for cover.

I get first turn.  I drop my lone pod of 'shooty' Terminators 10" behind his SwarmLord (no cover from this angle), and proceed to epic roll combi plasma and assault cannon downing the SwarmLord before his first movement phase.  I just remember Joe's simple "that sucked"...


Well I'm getting a bit bored with the Armies I'm playing, and considering a sell off.  Take a plunge and start a new army.

I'm disappointed that the 5thED choices are limited.  I'm not interested in Power Armor, so that leaves:  Tyranids, IG, and Dark Eldar.

I already have alot of Tyranids, so gonna give them a go this weekend.  I'm more interested in Dark Eldar than IG, however IG seems to have more configurations.  If I wasn't so adverse against Power Armor, I would invest time in my sons Blood Angels.  I really enjoy the various combo's you can use, DoA, Armor, etc.  Blood Angels have alot of options.

Still trying to decide what to sell.  Obviously will sell Orks and Chaos.  Debating on selling my SW, if I ever decide to give them another shot, I would like to redo their scheme anyhoo.

I'm ready to start a new project.  On a sidenote, Matt was kind enough to have a couple of high gloss posters made for me.  I bought frames and everything :-)  Below are the posters that he had made.

... making Games Workshop model prices look CHEAP, since 1998.

So Forgeworld just came out with a NEW vehicle for IG, it's about twice physical size of a Chimera.  Go check it out here...

Amazing huh?  So do you think it's worth $181?  I'm making the assumption that Forgeworld has replaced Resin with Silver for casting.

Next time I have $512 laying around, maybe I'll just head over to their site and pick up a Chaos Warhound Titan... or I'll purchase a plane ticket to the Caribbean instead.


Now if you regularly purchase from Forgeworld, please tell me your reasoning.  I would like to understand how someone could pay so much for a plastic model.

Been Awhile

So got promoted at work (yay!), but has left me a bit busy.  I have been tinkering around with some Wolves.  Played a fun list with Logan and 12 or so Terminators (long fangs n' such to fill in).  It was alot of fun, and a departure from what a normally play.

Fun to me is any list that is a departure from what I may normally play.  So normally it's Grey Hunters in Rhino's, Long Fangs galore, throw in melta and a Rune Priest or two and BAM!

That has gotten bit tired.  I need to mix it up, keep it fresh :-)

I've got alot on the paint table, and with some time freed up, need to get it organized and take some pictures.  Keep an eye out.


Not finished yet, but so far so good.
