    Hey Huntzy. I'm on now, but I don't see anyone else on -- which leads me to believe something is wrong...

    Ahhh. It looks like I need the new version. Downloading it now.

    There are some acts so ruthless, some deeds so unpalatable, that only the Vlka Fenryka are capable of undertaking them. It's what we were bred for. It's the way we were designed. Without qualm or sentiment, without hesitation or whimsy. We take pride in being the only Astartes who will never, under any circumstances, refuse to strike on the Allfather's behalf, no matter what the target, no matter what the cause.

    Huntzy and Slapnuts draw. (How does that work in this league?)

    There was a pretty epic battle between Ragnar and Mephiston in which Ragnar was killed outright, on the first turn, without even getting a chance to swing...

    Moral of the story? Shoot at Mephiston until he's dead.

    It probably means both players stay where they are, although if you had to spend your challenge token it stays gone (that would be my take, and in no way represents what the actual rule may be)

    Re-reading the rules, um, nothing happens, the only time anything happens is if someone wins. But you can challenge again, like right now.

    Huntzy and I can't possibly play a third time in a row. Don't get me wrong, he's a cool guy. But if we get a third game in, there should probably be a ring involved.

    Kan Wall Stomps Extreaminatus Raiders! News at 11!

    In a lopsided matching tonight, The Kan Walls stomped all over the Extreaminatus Raiders. Four objectives were seeded over the field, and the Raiders won the coin toss, selecting to go first in a spearhead formation. However, with their first string Dark Lance gunners out on injuries from last season, and several critical interceptions by the Kan's Mek, Goletoof, the raiders just couldn't hold out.

    This was a great game, but Extreaminatus knew he was in trouble, as his army isn't really set up to take on a light vehicle spam army. On top of that, he had some bad dice luck and I had great dice luck with my KFFs, so that at the bottom of Turn 3, my only vehicle casualties were a couple of buggies that crashed into the rocks.

    Extream is a great opponent, and I look forward to playing against him in the future.

    Susan's Necrons fall to the Deathwing at the last moment before the deceiver would crush the remaining Terminators.

    It was very close, the last turn, I had 2 terminators, Beliel and an immobilized, one weapon destroyed Land Raider. He had a full squad of warriors, a full squad of destroyers, the deceiver, and a monolith. I managed to kill all the destroyers and assault the warriors, doing enough wounds to make them fall back off the board, causing phase out.

    4+ inv in combat is pretty awesome.

    I used to run a 1000pt wyche cult list back in the day. When our store only had 4x4 tables. It pretty much because win or lose on turn 1.

    Then the whole Dakka-Nid list took root and I gave it up. Nothing I could do against that.

    I completely quit nids when dakka-nid lists came out. I STARTED with nids in 2nd ed, and my entire career the nids were about being the best CC army out there. And then that stupid codex came out and everyone took dakkafexes, I didn't even have the models to give them guns, and even my raveners were CC only. Only things that had guns were warriors, biovores and the tyrant. God that codex makes me so mad. I almost want to try out the new dex because you can have a good CC list again, but I just think its too late. Too much money would have to go into the new models and I got used to the versatility of Space Marines/DA.

    Uhhhh....I have no idea on that Slapnuts. This weekend is going to be weird due to business with family and preparing for an interview and stuff. Monday may be better after like 8 est.

    Also I will stick with Chaos so the list here stands.

    8 sounds fine. I can't really go much past 1030, however.

    7's fine.

    Here's my list, too. I brought the core up to 750 points by adding a power weapon on the commander, and two squads of conscripts.

    Awesome, finally get my 40K fix.

    My Army will be Dark Angels. GMT - 6.

    I propose a rule, those in the bottom rung are free to change up their army lists as long as they post them on here before playing. That way someone doesn't get stuck on the bottom with an army that either isn't working or they don't like.
