First Experience: Trial By Fire!

OK so last night I attended a "local" gaming club (20 miles isn't too bad!) for the first time and had an absolute hoot. Numerous friends have been going for years and since I finally bought a car (well 2 but it's a long story!) I thought I'd get some experience in with my Tau getting ready for Blog Wars. Matt and Toph are going to a doubles event later this week and were getting in practice with their 1200 point force (2 x 600 point forces with full force organisation options there are also no ally limitations for this) and let me say for a start they are going to do well. They are doing a Tyranid/Imperial Guard Combo that is justified using the term "Genestealer Cult". At 1200 points they had found enough room to take 2 Leman Russ Demolishers and 2 Flyrants!! That is Filth!!!! there was also plenty of guardsmen and a tiny unit of gaunts and some lonely lonely lonely Rippers (this unit gets my vote for Entity of the Match!).

Let the Climb Begin!

Ladles and Jellyspoons I have Tau!!!

I have not yet decided on what the army will include however I can say this, I have never been a WAAC competitive player- the mindset is anathema to me. So what have I started work on?

After browsing the Codex and scratching my brow I just purchased a swathe of miniatures I could see myself using (Fire Warriors, Broadsides and Riptide to begin with). I aim to make the army quite Farsight-y so Battlesuits aplenty I feel. I am also going to be "cheating" and using my airbrush for all basecoats- here is what I have done thus far....


Stay tuned for more soon though!
