List: Giving Shikes a try

Last week I went over the tyranid shrikes while in comparison to Raveners. After the dust settled I thought they could use a chance to hit the field.  So the next time I get to play I am going to give them a try. Here is the list and I will talk about changes after:

The Guys over at Blood of Kittens have posted up some images they got from the new white dwarf and to no surprise of mine they are of Space Marines.

Battle Royal: Shrike VS Ravener

All this year I have been playing Tyranids trying to improve my game playing and to prove that Tyranids are not the easy win for the opponents. During this time, although I have not kept track I feel that I have even broke even or had a winning record. I have tried many of the different units that I had never tried like the parasite and mawloc.

Chapter House is back...

So the lawsuit is over and it looks like that Chapter House Studio has come out on top. While they were not really gone they did slow down on creating new items.

GW Exclusive!

Rush out and buy it now it is only available for 24 hours.  If you don't you will miss out on all the savings!

Oh wait there is no savings... there must me a special model... nope. um free paint... nope.  Warm fuzzy for saving all the time by not adding in each model to your cart. YES!!! there is the benefit.

So I am having a little fun here on GW's expense but come on. Making it an exclusive and only available for 24 hours is just kinda silly. Now I am not upset that they bundled it all together for 1 click shopping it is smart.  They should have a bunch of these for every army.  It make the shopping easy for the thinking challenged. Click here for a themed army.  What I am laughing at is them trying to hype it up to seem like it is a great deal.

I guess that is too much to expect for good old GW. oh if you want this sweet deal click here be warned the link is only good for 24 hours

back to your regularly scheduled content.

A sad monday :(

I am saying farewell to my space elves both good and evil types.  After trying to get into both armies and never fully being able to grasp the play style for each I have decided to let them go.   I will still root for them when playing against those Power Armor jerks, I just won't be there to give the orders.

if I would play Dark Angels...

This is what my army would look like.

Of course, it is a Ravenwing army.  All the models are from my Polish friends Puppets War

Know thy enemy...(Space Marine rumors)

Now that eldar are released ( I am still on the fence about them) and Apoc is slated for a July release,  we turn to the rumor mill to find out what army is next to hit the upgrade button... come on nids, come on nids, come on nids..... dang.  According to current rumors it is Space Marines.... sigh.

Just a quick update...

The fellows over at Table Top Addicts have added a battle report of our latest battle.  It was a good game.  Makers is a good player and has a competitve list.  With a great unclean one 2 flying princes and fateweaver it is a truly scary list.  I got lucky with some roles and he was unlucky with his.  THis being said my list worked just like I planned.

Monday morning ramblings: Eldar and WIP gaunts

I apologize about my last post.  For some reason I thought Fantasy Books and Games were having a Rogue Trader tournament and it turns out they had a straight W/L tournament.  I switched back to my current 2K army and got ready to collect some biomass. Until, that is, I found out that the store needed a ringer.  Seeing that I am friends with the Manager and employees I volunteered and without fail they had an even amount of players.  Oh well.  I did run the clock and was there to dispute any rules so, all was not lost.
