No some of you might be wondering, "What Raffle?" Let's start at the begining.....
6th Edition less than 8 days away and to celebrate my favorite store, Fantasy Books and Games, is having a raffle for a 2000pt army that the winner (pick me, pick me) gets to have input on. I know my chances of winning are low, but as Han says,"never tell me the odds."
So if I win, which army woulr I want. First out of the box I thought I could try the all Sword and board army. This is a army consisting of only terminator or models that can use a storm shield and power weapon. I would allow a verity of different weapons claws, axes, hammers as long as they have a shield with it. Some say I should do this with Dark Angels but I was thinking wolves since I could have T wolf calv with the loadout as well as some Terminators. Either or would be cool but I think I like the wolves better.
Then I got to thinking... The blood angels assault marine army with some furioso Dreads with claw would be cool too. Having a bunch of guys jumping around killin stuff with meltas is just fun. Especially if they now have some I10 attacks on the charge.
Then I thought, "Hey this is Xeno for the Win not space marine for the win." Which Xeno army don't I have a lot of and want to make an army for??? Tau of course! I could get a tau army with these super winnings and have a field day pew pewing until I get charged :)
Lastly there comes the lowely Iron Warriors. I have 2 squads and a rhino but I have put a hold on the army since I have spent so much time on my other armies.... I am so ashamed. But if I win I can get those 2 Vindicators and terminators with a land raider and whatever else Brandon thinks would be fluffy...
So ther you have it. My wish list. Now if Only I could win!
have a good weekend!

local game shop is running a 1500pt tourney with the prize being more entries in raffle for a 2000pt army. This would be a great way for me to get one of the armies I don't have. That is a post for another day. Today I want to go over what I have planned for the event and to get some opinions what I could change.

This week starts open play for league night at Fantasy Books and Games. Usually there is a 3 week break between organized play sessions. I tend to use these weeks to play some of my weaker armies or like I did during the last break, try out new units.

Yesterday we had an APOC game. It was a re-enactment of the battle of Armageddon. The one little catch is that the orks were outnumbered 2-1 on the main board. On the main board were 2 stompas, a skullhammer and giant squigoth. unfortunately there were 2 warhound titan on the Space Marine side and a ton of tanks. If that was not impressive enough, the ork had 12 of the new planes to come in and cause havok.

Team Snake Eyes. This was the swan song for my Dark Eldar. Chosen1 was playing his Salamander space marines as always. His list was created by Chambers from The Back 40K You can find his list HERE under list #4. Of course my list is found HERE.

This weekend, during my horrible tournament experience, I got to test out the new ork flyer. With the limited playtime I got with this unit, I am not sure I got a full idea if they are worth adding in or not. I did get an impression though and with that impression I will answer some basic questions.
