Blog Wars!

Just a quick one this morning as I know Bully has some goodies for later...Deathwing HOOO!

Blog Wars is a tournament designed to bring the internet community together and sprang to life from a random comment discussion on a Sons post a while back.

Anyway, From the Fang has run with it, massive props to him for doing so, and the tournament is to be held at the Maelstrom (the same location as the UK 40K GT) in June.

Details are here for those that run blogs in the UK and want to throw down in a tournament setting with the internet community...


I think already attending are Mercer from Imperius Dominatus, Adam from Space Wolves Grey, Admiral Drax, Col Corbane...Simo and other Claws and Fists boys and of course a load of us from the Sons (once the names go up on the website...I'm on there but Bully, Atreides, Justin and Bringer of Death are not yet? :( ...) ....yeah, that's right, the Sons are going on a day trip!

And of course, the mighty, the Be-Pinked...Brother Loring! Finally get to meet and throw down with the dude! Woot! We've been trying (with piss poor effort really) for some time to get a game in...

The Sons are going! Be there or be square loser!

  8. Just noticed the "Must" have special Characters rule, not sure if I'm keen on that TBH. Its OK if you play Logan wing etc but I've never really been bothered with Special Characters.

    Mind You it could be an excuse to buy that old school Njal mini :)

  10. Sorry wrong google account lol.

  11. i really like the Special Character thing actually. It might encourage a bit of inovation in list building :)

  12. I have to admit I do not like taking a special character either. Sucks arse forcing people to take certain things in their armies.

  13. I guess it does benefit certain armies over others. i mean, Space Marines will be laughing, but Tau? Sisters? hmm

  14. I've been thinking about the special character thing and you're right it does penalize tau, sisters and nids a bit. I'll throw a post up about it and see what ppl think.

    The idea was to try and get some different lists rather than the usual generic stuff. However as a Tau player I know how sucky it would be. Main thing is getting ppl together.

  15. Definitely down if I'm still around!

  16. Before you shout, I'm still planning on attending. Work however has just decided to change our rota (with 3 days notice - thanks!) so 3 of the weekends I'd planned to be away and paid for, I'm not rota'd to be working. I may therefore have to swap some weekends negating me from beating your ass... umm... I mean attending. We shall see...

    What is this about special characters.... maybe I should read the rules thoroughly??

    If I can't I promise I'll be at the next BW tournie. Competing or not. And I don't promise lightly... ;)

  17. Sounds good, except that weekend is my 21st. Therefore I think you should change it to the weekend after :D

  18. I am defo going, if I am meant to be working I can just swap it - also up for WHW the day before, saves me having to get up at 5am or something on the Sunday to travel to "not London".

    Don't mind the special character rule *oddly enough* lol.

  19. @From the Fang et al regarding Special Characters...um what? missed that one! I can live with it as the armies I generally use are 5th ed armies with decent specials...Nids? poor bastards...Doom of Malantai all round or Swarmlord...although I did play around with the outflanking dude the other day..

    @Killswitch - ah 21...to be young again..you have to feel sorry for us old boys...at 27 I barely survive a fully charged night out...I love it, don't get me wrong...but I'm just shagged for 2 days after..lol.

    @ Bro Lo... Oh. Dear. What can I say!? Scared? lol. Fair enough, I think we all know real life comes first..
    hmm, a promise is a promise bitch!

    I'll hold you to it, if not? I'll "-Like" all your comments forever on 3++!

    A plague of negative likes upon you and your house!

  20. Thats like one of the most geeky threats I've ever seen ven!

    I can see some issues in certain books, but maybe just do exceptions to the rules where its clear there could be problems (I.E, Tau, Sisters etc..)

    Certainly don't go the other way and ban them or else I am boned! How else am I going to use my superfriends of dante, mephiston, corbulo and Lemartes?
