WIP Wednesday: Rhinos, Bases, and Display Board planning.

Ok this week was kind of slow for hobby progress. Blake and I drove out to Vermillion on friday to play Zach in a cities of death game, and I spent this weekend enjoying the nice weather with the kiddos and wifie. I did go see Hunger Games on Sunday too. So on to what I did do.....

Sister's Of Battle List Building

As I have been focusing more on my SoB and getting them repainted, I have also been toying in my head with different builds. Now there are not alot of options for Sisters, but there are a few I think are getting over looked.

WIP Monday? Project SoB Rebirth!

Ok I apologize for it being pretty quite around here this week. Model wise, it has been pretty busy! This week I kicked into high gear my Sisters of Battle repaint. I also started a terrain project to use on my new board. So on to the pictures of what I have been up too!

The Battle for Saint Marcus Cathedral; 40k Apocalypse Game

the table is set.

Saturday was my day off, and we decided to do a massive apocalypse game. We wanted a fun, I don't care what happens. type of game. My buddies also wanted to use alot of their models so we decided on 3000 points a person. Unfortunately one of them had to work, so it was on me to play 4000 points of Crimson Fists and 2000 points of "Green" Templars! So with some story writing during the week at work, we were set for an epic battle!

WIP; terrain day

Earlier this week I received the 2 out of 3 Pegasus Hobbies Gothic small buildings kits, I had ordered. Now my plan was to work on SoB on my day off yesterday, but with new shiny toys sitting right there, I just could not resist. I combined both kits to make on large cathedral. I know it is rather large, but I wanted a center piece for my table and my SoB. I will be getting more of these kits, as I'm leaning towards a Shrine World themed table. Although I will keep the rest of the buildings smaller in scale. I hoped to get more pictures up but my camera went dead on me, so here is a taste for now...

I used these two kits to make that building.

Small Gothic buildings 1 and 2.

Love me some UPS!

Just in time! 2 of the 3 sets of Pegasus Hobby kits I ordered, arrived today! I also have an email saying my 2 packages from Amazon are in town at the PO office. Perfect timing too, as we are playing Apocalypse this Saturday and these will be a nice addition to the table!

So much for working on SoB on my day off tomorrow!

Does 40k need to be Balanced?

People are always stating that 40k is not balanced. I have been thinking about this statement all day while I was at work. Yeah it was a boring day. The real question should not be whether it is or is not balanced, but whether we really want it to be balanced at all. Are any wargames really balanced?

Winning and Losing, How do you handle it?

Recently I have played a couple games where my list and tactics was simply crushing my opponent. I wasn't being a dick about it, and there wasn't any rules disagreements. It was simply, I had better units in a better position and they were doing what they do, crush the enemy. As turn 2 or 3 went on, and the game was clearly swinging in my favor, my opponents were not having fun and were beginning to become hostile to my army. The word "broken" and OP was spoken. When did regular Space Marines become cheesy?
