40k and Pirates

So a few weekends ago I got the bug to play 40K & called my good friend Rob of http://dspaintingblog.blogspot.com/ and we threw down a game of 40k. He brought his Imperial Guard & I busted out my Sisters of Battle. We were going to do a 400 point combat patrol game, but we bumped the points to 1000. We played Capture & Control and Rob went first. The basic run down was that I was able to get my Sisters over to Robs objective and ended up winning the battle.






















So before I left for Adepticon, I took a painting commission from my good friend Lonnie. He wanted his Steel Legion Guard army painted. Well I got the army and it was in pretty bad shape, most of the figures had to be stripped, so into a bucket of Simple Green. Here is some of the Legion after they came out of the Simple Green Bath already to be primed.




Also this week I got a package from John over at http://plasticlegions.blogspot.com/ it seemed that he needed a few Cannibals for his One day LotHS game he is running. So I sent him 10 cannibals and a few other bare metal figures, in return he sent me these figures below. There were a few Brigade Minis Pirates (which I did not have), as well as some Gripping Beast Celts to go along with the Wargames Factory Celts.



So there you go another update down...

WAB at Adepticon 2009

Well I finally got the WAB pictures up, now certain people (Hank Edley!) can stop bugging me about it! The first set of pictures are from the Singles event on Saturday. Oh and as a Special request (from Hank) here is a shot of Mike Hortons Celts.
Best General went to Eric Hagen, Best Painted went to Bennett Blalock Doane (Which I did not get photos of!), Best Sportsmen went to Merle Delinger & Time to Start a New Army went to Chris Southard.

















Well here is a shot of just how well my dice rolling was going all weekend long. This dice actually landed like this with the one facing me, Mike Bates & I both took pictures of it!



The next shots were taken on Sunday for the Doubles event which Michael Cosentino & Don Perrin won Best Team. Best painted went to Dave Pauwels & Jamie Welling, Best Sportsmen went to Frank Brown, Sean Ramieres & Brent Sinclair (Brent had to leave Saturday night due to a basement flooding) And the I'm in Charge, no I am in charge went to Jay Luehring & Chris Southard.





















All in all everyone had a blast and the WAB events and players are growing. Look forward to seeing more folks next year.
