It's over 9000!!!

IT'S OVER 9000!!!

I now have the coolest problem ever. Due to an extremely generous donation from a magnanamous benefactor, I now have over 9000 points of space marines. Allow me to now say, HOLY CRAP! About 3000 points of it are still unassembled and it's quite intimidating to look at it all and know I have to assemble it.

I can now have an Apocalpyse game... against myself. This is awesome. So, I'll be plugging away at assembly for all of the new stuff and trying to get some model reviews up for what I'm working on as I go. I'll also try to provide some information on storage methods because as my army grows it's becoming a larger and larger consideration for upkeep.

OT: Movie Review

Movie Review: The Thing

Since this is off topic, I'll spare you a long winded introduction. Suffice it to say that John Carpenter's The Thing is one of my favorite movies. It was a suspense/thriller/mystery/action film starring Kurt Russell. With a perfect blend of mood, special effects, and writing, it was a fantastic movie that had you on the edge of your seat and guessing until the very end.

The Thing (2011) is the perfect prequel. It contains and totally nails all of the elements that made the first film great. I'll say that it's not better than the original, but that's what makes it great. Neither of them over shadow the other which makes them great to watch together, as intended. I'd very much recommend seeing it, regardless of whether you saw the old one or not.


List Building and Battle Report!

Darnath Lysander. The Great Eater of guard blobs. Om nom nom.

I had a chance to get a game in this weekend for practice in an upcoming team doubles tournament at my local friendly game store. My usual team mate Thomas, and I were really excited to hear about it because we've been working on and continually refining the team tournament list we used for the first event we went to. Our list has undergone several sweeping changes and thanks to the help of 40k Metrics, we had it down to a well balanced and versatile art. The only problem is that it has yet to be tested in a tournament in it's current form.

Finally got a chance to pick up some Instant Mold, as seen here on Cool Mini or Not. Haven't had a chance to use it yet, but I intend to create some molds to build up some combi-weapons for my squads. More details to follow as I get myself in trouble with it.


Starting Up

Getting the blog set up. New posts will soon be up, beginning with a nice article on 40k Metrics.
