9th Ed GT Missions Breakdown - Secondaries

Greetings, all! Today I'm going to break down the Secondary missions from the 9th Ed GT pack and give my initial impressions. Biggest caveat being, this is nearly all theoretical at this point, so take my conclusions with a grain of salt.

Grand Tournament 2020 Chapter Approved 2020 Mission Pack ...

Just at face value, I want to start by focusing on the Secondaries. The Primary mission is essentially the same for all missions, with a couple wrinkles thrown in here and there. The strategy for the Primary boils down to "hold at least two objectives to start each of your turns." However, the Secondary objectives add up to half your possible score, and there are a bunch to choose from.

2019 In Review and 2020 Resolutions

It Liiiives! Maybe, sort of... not really.

The last post on the blog was back in March, so saying the blog, or the podcast, is alive might be a bit of a stretch. But, it's still here and occasionally, like today, I get nostalgic and decide to try to write up a post. This time, I'm doing my annual year in review and resolutions post.

Facing The Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 80: Gonyo Goes Off on some GSC

What is up Everyone? In this episode, Bryan and Chandler are joined by Andrew Gonyo of the Beast Coast and 40k Fame.  Gonyo steps up to help Bryan talk about Gene Stealer Cults, he breaks down some of his initial thoughts on the units and cults that might be good or seeing more table time, and he talks about where he sees GSC in the immediate future, in the next 6 months, and what it might eventually look like.  Gonyo also talks about his plans for Adepticon, his love for Beast Coast, and how horrible he is with fluff but how good he is with numbers and dice! Remember, Gonyo says "Breachers are AMAZING!"

"I just thought it was a little Bro on Bro crime....." Andrew Gonyo explains the Horus Heresy.

Facing The Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 79: Skari is Here to Help

What is up Everyone? In this episode, Bryan, Chandler, and Evan are joined by the one and only Skari.  The guys talk about some of the projects they are working on, we get an update on the #CultRises progress, and we get to know Skari a little better.  Skari gives us his best paint blend (you will understand, trust me), talks about his origins in the hobby as well as his first army, and we talk about his thoughts on everything from list building to painting and even get his experience at LVO.* Skari also explains how he would help someone getting into the hobby as well as someone looking to get better at the hobby.  Overall it is a good look into someone that really understands the hobby at the tabletop, hobby station, and above the table, and we are glad he came on to help us get better.

*Not all Cops in Vegas will Spank you......

Skari brings the Maple Syrup, Tim Horton's, and a lot of good information.

Facing The Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 78: So ManBeardPainting Stumbles In......

What is up Everyone? In this episode, Chandler sits down with Zach Bowles of ManBeardPainting fame and lore.  We sit down to talk about his origin story into 40k (Dawn of War is a gateway drug people), his love of Orks, some of the craziest commission stories he has, and of course about shenanigans that happen both on and off the table.  We talk about his painting on Twitch, for his hobby, and his commission work and get an insight if anyone is looking for a great painter to help get your army to the table.  We also talk about our thoughts on 3 color armies, and really just sit down to tell stories.

Don't fear the Beard; Embrace and love the Beard!

The Cult Rises: Update 6: My first Genestealer Cult list and a build week

Greetings Reader,

Here we are, on the last day of February and #thecultrises has been going on for the better part of two months now. I haven't quite hit my total painted models goal but I have been extremely pleased at consistent progress on this army as well as a pretty good quality of painting for my current skill level.
