|It's not failure if you change the rules!|
Warma/Hordes: No longer Rhulics, its build and paint 50 points of Retribution. The Rhulics got sold to a local player. I used that money to begin funding at Retribution of Scyrah army. The good news is the test model is painted and I am motivated to get them done. Maybe I can get the MM(esno) to snap some pics of the test model.

Confrontation: I’ve down sized my Confrontation collection quite a bit, sending both my extra Mid-Nor and all of my Cynwall to new homes. I think I may have a new home for my Griffons as well that leaves Orcs, Tir-Na-Bor, and Mid-Nor. I’ve painted a little on my Mid-Nor but nothing serious. I will still paint 400 points of Confrontation this year. Just need to decide on a faction.
Project Completion: -going on here. My plan is to finish my Retribution as my first completed project. Once I get some feedback on my test model and really nail the scheme I can get started in earnest.
Tables: The MM(esno) has put up the Hirst Arts table I built and he painted and did the base work on. There is a second table in progress. They have been built. He will do the paint and base. I’ve got some trees to do for them. I’m calling this one progressing. And ¾ complete. GO ME!
And now…the Dilemma…
I got rid of my Guard army. I need a new 40k Army for competitive play. It is what it is. I don’t consider it reneging on my Resolution, just changing it from Guard to something else. So I have a few options but am having trouble deciding. I am notorious in our group for being indecisive. Hell the only reason I had a Guard army is because we rolled randomly to decide what armies we were going to build and that is what I ended up with. Here is an explanation of the options:
- Dornian Heresy Thousand Sons-this army will be based on the fluff presented in the Dornian Heresy supplement from the Bolter and Chainsword . This army will be built to handle to various marine codexes but based on the rumors about the forthcoming GK book, it will probably be built to handle that book specifically. Read the Dornian Heresy fluff then read the GK rumors. Match made in heaven.
- Sisters of Battle – This army is the one I want to build but the sisters themselves are becoming hard and harder to get. A real pain to build I think but I know exactly what I want. Probably typical Immo spam but Sisters are gorgeous.
- Dark Eldar-I have not really studied the book so I don’t know what I would build here but the new models are very, very nice and the army is something completely different than anything I have played before.
- Tyranids-This is the wild card in the deck. I think there is a competitive army in the book, but I don’t even know where to start with it. Again something completely different.
