Team Tournament Time! For the third year in a row I participated in the Adepticon Warhammer 40,000 Team Tournament, this time with a very different team. I still find it hard to believe that we managed to organize everything with even less preparation and motivation than we did last year, but in the end things turned out to be fine, I suppose. This year we decided to bring four different Imperial Armies.
While I'm still recuperating from the glory that was Adepticon let me share with you the triumphs and tribulations of a friend of mine who for a second year in a row decided to rub elbows with some of the greatest wargamers at the Warhammer 40,000 Championships! Tom was kind enough to write up a few quick battle reports from his four games and there are some pretty sweet pictures to boot! Since I couldn't really play the tourist role at the Championships (it interfered with the Killzone events we were running) this is my way of covering the event through the point of view of Tom's Dark Eldar, led by the Lord Hellions himself..
In what is probably going to be the very first, official review of Brian’s (you know, the glorious man from A Gentleman’s Ones ?) ultra-mega-spiffy supplement cards for Special Operations: KILLZONE , I’m going to cover the cards and show you some cool shots of the actual product. I think I’m the first person to actually get his grubby hands on the new cards! Information about the cards, tokens and the various sets + how to ORDER Here Today I took the train to Brian’s house for some needed hobby-time (and by hobby-time I mean working on the super secret tables that we are building for the Special Operations: KILLZONE at Adepticon.. all 10 of them!) and the good man managed to surprise me with the newly-arrived cards for SO: KILLZONE. The box was gutted literally in front of me with a letter-opener like a Cornish game hen and inside were dozens upon dozens of neat-looking card boxes. Check ‘em out: Left to right: The Basic Card Set; The Full Operative Set Before the invention of the Tuckbox™ there was only Chaos. The first neat thing about the cards are the boxes Tuckboxes. Last year’s version of the cards looked pretty good, but were easy to misplace and lose because they didn’t have a box, and rubber-bands are just not an option. With the addition of the brand-spankin’-new Tuckbox™ accessory your cards will withstand time, wear, tear, the elements of nature AND even Chernobylesque levels of radiation. But just to be safe, don’t count on the cards surviving all the way to the 41st millennium.. They are just cards, after all.
Ho-hummm! No worries, ladies and gentlemen – I am still alive. Just been busy with live and a super- secret -project-which-I-will-reveal-to-you-in-a-second-or-two.. Let me just tell you what I’ve been doing/working on lately, then.. The battle reports from the Gentleman's Grand Tournament will continue. I have the second game 40% done, but typing my opponent's I.G list is seriously too daunting a task and I'm too lazy to scan it, even though the scanner is 2 feet away from me.
