Something To Be Tankful For

So, the rumors are that there will be an expansion for 40k that will allow the use of super-heavy vehicles in standard games of 40k. Escalation is the name I've heard and expect to see. Well...good.
Very Good

BEHOLD! The Wild Beast

Well last tournament was a resounding success and I owe that in no small part to the actions of my Leman Russ Executioner.

Choice v. Destiny, or why I don't play Chaos

NOTE: Every so often I wax philosophical and have the erg to write it down. For those who only want to read about tanks and gaming, go ahead and skip this post.

There is no fate but what we make.

Simple words from a simple movie but with great meaning. Many in my family believe me to be a fatalist (one who lets much of their lives be decided by fate) because I mentioned at one family gathering that death is inevitable. The truth is quite the opposite.

2k Big Guns Army List

I usually play IG lists centered around tanks. This isn't always the case and for about a year now I've been working toward getting the pieces to run a semi-pure infantry list. I say semi because it includes Forge World rules for field and stationary artillery.

This kind
As of yesterday I finally purchased the pieces I'd need in the form of some WWII Long Tom models, though I am still awaiting some pieces from Curious Constructs for the other guns. Either way, it seems time to refine and get down a set list for when I'm not in the mood for tanks (it happens! Really!)

RTT Game 3 - Tanks vs...Where is everybody?

Game 3 time. I'm scheduled to go up against a player I've played a couple of times. Tabled him at the last tournament in round one and both of us are playing similarish lists (parsed down from 2500 points.)

RTT Game 2 - Tanksgiving Mk. 1 vs. Draigo

So, game 2 and this time I'm facing off against Grey Knights...evil Grey Knights. No, serioudly. Look at their second in command!
I present: Brother-Librarian Phlegm
Clearly they noble Grey Knights have been corrupted by the influence of Nurgle and must be cleansed for the greater good of the Imperium. Game on.

The Humble Hydra Flak Tank

I know that they Hydra has a bad rap in IG lists these days, owing that mostly to the FAQ granting them Skyfire but not interceptor (so they fire at BS1 vs. most things.) Despite this I've been thinking about Hydras a lot lately. I'm kinda a treadhead (in case you hadn't noticed) and don't particularly take any enjoyment out of fielding Vendettas as dogfighters.
