After trying to speed paint some of my Jetbike Eldar for a tournament tomorrow, I realized that I probably won't get them done on time so while at work I was thinking about bringing a more fluffy, fun, Iyanden themed army (that I only need a few more models to paint).

The Eldar codex has some "good" and "bad" choices for each force org slot, especially with the advent of 5th edition, and Shining Spears are thought to have been one of those poor or sub-optimal choices. Well, someone had to take a unit, compare it with something else and come to the conclusion that it was a poor or sub-optimal choice in the first place and I would argue that given the proper battlefield role and use, Shining Spears can be a great choice and addition to the right army, namely, my army!
So now that the dust has settled from the Sprue Posse tournament I think doing as well as I did and being the only Eldar player there deserves some measure of celebration. I ended up with a 3-1-1 score and was in a 4 way tie for 3rd but after tie-breakers I got nudged into 5th place. The competition was fierce as several people with top 10 rankings from http://www.rankingshq.com/ were there amongst other internet big shots from Dakka Dakka.

My friends and I are planning on going to the Sprue Posse grand prix tournament (http://www.chaoswins.com/p/sprue-posse-grand-prix.html) and I decided to get a practice game in with one of them. This game was between an experimental Jetbike list vs my friend's experimental IG list. To clarify, both Chris and I were trying new things so we were playing a list and making choices we might not normally try just to see what would happen.
