 Well, not having internet where I live makes updating my blog a hard thing to do but here is a little bit of action for anyone interested...A farewell to 6th edition battle between Dakka's famous Jy2 and myself.

Gundam+Tau=Win!?



I've always liked the concept of a Tau Crisis suit army but never quite liked the aesthetic of the Tau Crisis Suit. I have, however, always loved the aesthetics of the Gundam Zaku II suit and decided to try and either convert the current Tau suit to look like a Zaku or find appropriately scaled Gundam figures to use as Crisis Suits...This post will cover my recent labor of love, a Tau Crisis Suit army made from Gundam Zaku figures and kits!

Tyranids, what could or should have been: My Tyranid Fandex



So I've expressed my dismay and disappointment with the recent Tyranid Codex but now I'd like to express the way I think the codex should or could have been written to be a solid, fun and better army. Feel free to check it out and let me know what you guys think!

Tyranids...Why you so fail?


The Tyranids are out and the gaming community is quite polarized in terms of it either being total utter garbage or thinking that "it isn't so bad." Well, having played Tyranids competitively since before the year 2000, back when 2nd edition was transitioning into 3rd, I think I know a thing or two about how to play/win with Nids and why they were so good before and why they are so bad now...Yes, I believe the new codex is so utterly and completely bad I wand to scream and below are the reasons why I think GW totally and completely got Nids wrong-AGAIN.

Feast of Blades: The end and some gaming philosophy



With the final day of gaming completed and a pleasant night out on the town in Denver with my wife, I think the trip out to Feast was a worthwhile adventure in gaming, fun and introspection. This post will cover more of how I did, how I felt with Eldar/Tau and the meta along with some philosophical food for thought.
