You know, I could have taken getting beat, but we weren't beat. We lost. Mostly due to this guy. We will be burning effigies of Williams this week, instead of gaming...

Okay, so converting 1 for 13 third downs didn't help either. But we still would've pulled out the vic without those two muffs. So mad!

Dr DestroyerLord, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Assault

"Lefou, I'm afraid I've been thinking"
"A dangerous pastime..."
"I know"

I've read some people talking about Necrons in assault and how weak they are. The key to beating them appears to be, as Jean Luc Picard would say, "Engage." Others like the surflord tricks (but with D3 attacks, they really are just tricks), or Destroyer Lords - but the loss of the Court seems so bad.

Can it be done?
Yes... Kind of.

Necron First Build

This is my first go at a Necron army for 2000 points. It's what I'm currently building. There is nothing too flashy or ground breaking in it - I'm using it to get used to playing them before I try any real tricks.

Necron FAQ Review

GW updated a bunch of FAQ's today, including the Necrons. As usual, some really obvious questions got answered, some good questions got answered, and some were left untouched.

Go 49ers!

Oh how sweet it is! I've been a fan of the 49ers since I was a wee lad of 10, watching them beat the Bengals in SupowerBowl XVI. I missed The Catch in that NFC championship game, but I've got to say, man did this game equal that game against Dallas 30 years ago.

Suddenly I'm a Giants fan - because I know we can beat them at home. Whether we can go to Lambeau and win...

Whew! The 6th Edition "leaked" rulebook is not real. Thank goodness.

While there was some good things in the PDF (and a lot of pipe-dreams). There was a lot of "Nope" in it too.

Most years, my local gaming store holds an Escalation Event that goes for three months. I'm going to explain some rules, and then ask for some help/insight if you have any.

The purpose of an Escalation is to start new armies, or bring back old ones that perhaps have been sitting on a shelf. Participation is free, and models are not required to be painted - this is really just a modification for friendly play.
