Wolf Works Project - Dreadtober Dread

Hello everyone.  Wolf Works Lighting here with the completion of our Dreadtober LED Dreadnought.  For this Project, we started thinking of what to do when Greggles posted about painting a dreadnought (or equivalent) in the month of October.  Needless to say, we were excited, on board from the get go, and we are finally ready to show off our LED Wolf Man Dread.

Enjoy the Pictures Below.

Facing the Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 31: The State of the Game

What is up Everyone? This week on the Podcast, Evan, Chandler, and Bryan decide to clear the air, unleash some frustration, and give their opinions on some of the big topics being discussed in the 40k World.  This is something that we have been discussing in private and decided that it might be good to get it out into the world, and get other people's opinions.  We love this game, and we want this game to be as fair and open to everyone as much as possible.

It is a little early for Festivus, but we are still airing our grievances.

Facing The Grey Tide - BATTLE BOTS Mini Game

A couple of years ago, when the Blog first started, I tried to come up with a fun mini-game that we could play on the side.  Inspired by Greggles and his Dreadtober idea, I decided to throw my Hat into the ring as it was, and come up with a fun mini game.  Enjoy!

Mawloc Conversion #3 - FTGT Ron

Hey Everyone,

I've been going back and finishing/touching up some of the models I rushed to put paint on as I got ready for the last NOVA.  Here are some pictures of the third Mawloc I (just) finished this past week:

I'll paint whatever I want! Also Dreadtober!

Hey Everyone,

BeeCee here with a quick update,

Man, there are few things more liberating on the hobby front than NOT having to paint to get an army ready for a tourney. It seems like since winter of 2013 I have always had a to do list based on an upcoming GT.

Facing The Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 30: West Coast Love with Ben Cromwell

What is up Everyone? This week on the Podcast, Mr. Ben Cromwell joins us to talk about everything from traveling, to sight seeing, to smashing international face. Ben is one of the top players in the nation and has been able to play in the NOVA Invitational, LVO, BAO, ATC, and the ETC. He also comes in to talk about one of the hardest things to do as a Tournament Player: finding a good bar. Totally kidding, we talk about prepping for different tournaments, some of the things to do and not do, and of course, how to have a good time.

Ben grabs a boogie board and shows us the West Coast Way.

List Building: Post NOVA Necrons for ITC

With NOVA 2015 in the rearview, I have debated what would be next for my Necrons. The first thought was how I would adapt the list to ITC format, not that I have plans to attend an ITC event anytime soon. Of course, it also begs the question of whether my list would work at all in an ITC format; I would have to cut the Aspect Host and two Canoptek Harvest formations. This presents a big problem for the list (as cutting almost half of any army would). So, for this post, what can I do to make a Necron list I like that isn't Arachnophobia?

Hobby Update - The 12 Wolf Lord Challenge Bran and Erik

Hey Everyone,

So almost 1 year ago, I put forward a challenge to myself to try to have all of the 12 Wolf Lords for the Space Wolves.  I had ideas that I put forward, but because of life, school, and other factors not related to 40k, I fell behind.  I am proud to present 3 models to represent 2 of the Wolf Lords I needed to Create.  They are Bran Redmaw and Erik Morkai.  These are works in progress and I still need to paint some of them, but I figured a quick update would be good.

Just a reminder, GW has models for Logan Grimnar, Ragnar Blackmane, Harald Deathwolf, and Krom Dragongaze.  They did show a Potential model for Bran Redmaw, but it was never sold.

Rumors: Tau XV95 Ghostkeel Rules and Breakdown

So the rules for the upcoming Tau Ghostkeel Battlesuit have leaked, and it has a bit of a rules algebra that could be interesting, but is pretty cool overall.

FTGT Painting: Eldar Avatar Commission

As mentioned a couple weeks ago, while I got the majority of Phil's Eldar army done before NOVA, I still needed to wrap up the Avatar. This weekend, somewhat at the last minute (as he's taking the army to Battle for Salvation this weekend), I finished up Phil's Avatar and got him mailed off.

Phil wanted to do the base to match.

Facing The Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 29: TPM, Warzone Atlanta, and The Tide Roll Again

What is up Everyone? This week sees a familiar face join the Podcast again; Mr. Paul Murphy of Forge the Narrative Podcast comes in to talk about the tournament that he is helping to put on in Atlanta called Warzone Atlanta. He stops by for a quick segment and then Bryan, Evan, Ron, and Chandler run down a whole lot of stuff that has been on their minds. We jump from 40k to Star Wars Armada to Painting and Malifaux. We are talking about all of the other fun games that we are playing in addition to 40k.

The Leader of one of our favorite groups of people and podcasts stops by and we are always ready to sit down and talk the night away.
