My First Battle Report!

Okay, I've been meaning to start some battle reports and this will be my first attempt.  Over my last few games I've been trying to get into a better habit of taking pictures.  I'll do my best to provide the turn by turn but this is a big learning experience for me so if you have any suggestions let me know!

Bleached Bone: Still trying to get it right.

Being that one of the colors of my army is 'parchment' and I find that the color bleached bone works the best for it I am having some big problems with the consistency of it.

Rules I'd change

(The above is a working Title, help me come up with something better!)

I've been trying to find my stride with this blog, I'm not sure exactly what I offer to the community as a newbie either but I feel I can at least open up for some good discussion!  So, I'd like to start something that I hope will be a weekly addition to my blog.

I will be providing a rule, a wargear, a...something in 40k that I'd like to see changed and why, this could be lore reasons, balance reasons, etc.  So I want to start with a piece of wargear that is close to my heart.  I'd say it is one of the figure-heads of the 40k Universe.  The Chainsword!

Normal CCW?  Really?

First of Three WIP Armies

Tonight I'd like to review some of the armies I'm currently working on and hopefully get some feedback from all of you.  Lets start with the army that got me into the hobby:

Please GW / FW I want that shoulder pad and chest piece.

Are they being unreasonable?

I played my second 1850 game a few nights ago at my LGS and I won't go too much into the battle but I did win but only because one of the players watching was helping me and my opponent (he was showing us some of the advanced tactics and my opponent was curious too so he encouraged it).  I don't really consider this a win because I didn't do it myself.

Attempt No. 2!

Greetings Everyone!

Okay, life has been extremely busy but I'm going to (once again) try to rekindle the light of my blog.  I've got some ideas and have bought plenty of models (even new armies) but seem to be in a painting and playing rut.  Right now I've got a stack of model kits (no less than 5 kits high) that I've purchased but have yet to even open.

Off the top of my head they include:
1 Furioso Dreadnought
2 Immortal / Deathmark Squads
1 Ghost / Doomsday Ark
1 Imotekh the Stormlord
1 Cryptek
1 Chimera
1 Cadian Shock Troop Squad

I'm sure there are more and normally I'd take an inventory to make sure it is accurate but I feel I need to focus on just getting some content on this blog.

So why have I not been able to post?  Well really it has been a combination of not feeling I had anything to post and other things in life.  But, I got to thinking and I feel that I don't have anything to post...because I'm not posting.  I'm trying to kick start this circle of hobby again of blog, paint and play but we will see what happens.  I'll admit the release of Skyrim and The Old Republic have not helped.

So, once again I hope this helps to start posting again, I'd like to start by taking some pictures of my current model count and start committing to painting at least once a week.

So!  Here is hoping!

Remember, "Knowledge is Power"

Necron and my initial thoughts?

Cover from the new Codex
So, I've had some time to read through the new Necron Codex and even make a list or two.  And there sits my stack of Necron kit boxes and me sitting here to absorb this new codex and my thoughts on it.  I must say it is somewhat of a mixed bag of feelings and I'm not entirely sure if my concerns are well founded.  Let me explain why...I started playing with a Marine Codex, specifically the Blood Angels and I feel this was both a boon and a hindrance.
