Update on the Hobby Challenge - Space Wolves Style

What is up everyone?  It has been an extremely long time since I did an update to the hobby challenge.  As you know I have been working on a Bran Redmaw army and unfortunately, I have been behind on updating the blog.  In the last couple of months since the hobby started and my last update, I have painted up a bunch of wolves but they are not part of the Redmaw army.  I have started and have pictures for the members that have painted up.

Enjoy the picture dump.

The Year of Tyranids: Defeating Project Backlog.

Hey Everyone,

BeeCee here after a long hiatus. I think the last time we talked I was just starting my DarkStar prep so I wanted to first take a moment to apologize that I haven't updated in a long time.

Bat Rep: Tyranids vs. Space Wolves - Road to the NOVA Open Game 1

Last weekend Chandler and I got in our first game for the Road to the NOVA Open League, Gray Bracket. Game 1 is NOVA Mission 1; Crusade with Dawn of War deployment. While last week I was debating between Sporefield and Deathleaper's Assassin Brood, I ended up running something a bit different after being challenged to run a Dimachaeron in a Tyrannocyte - full list after the bump:

Road to NOVA: Space Wolf List Building

On the heels of Evan and his BBB (aka Big Bad Bugs), I have been asked to jump in and participate in the Huzzah Road to NOVA event.  Of course I am bringing my Space Wolves to the party, but I don't know which of the lists I want to run.  We have a couple of weeks to get everything set, but I want to bring something that can not only deal with the 4 guys I am fighting, but I "could" also take to the actual event.

So Let's Get to List Building.

Road to NOVA: Tyranid List Building

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, friend of the blog, Phil, has put together a Road to the NOVA Open League. After chatting with him and campaigning for some interest local to me, I got myself a small local bracket to play games in starting this week.

Gaming Weekend

Last weekend I hosted a gaming weekend at my place. We've expanded a bit since our early gaming weekends, and this time I had three tables set up, with the possibility of setting up a fourth, though we never had more than six people playing at a time. I was a terrible blogger and failed to take any pictures except for one of my Vaul's Wrath Battery proxies for the weekend:

Facing the Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 22: Dark Star Recap, Knights, and Eldar

What's up everyone?  The boys are back and locked and loaded for another podcast.  Bryan comes back to let us know how the Dark Star GT went, we all run down our thoughts on both the Imperial Knights new codex as well as the Beautifully Deadly Eldar, and we have some fun along the way.  It's another Thursday, It's another Podcast, and we are just running down the dream.  Evan talks about his new Painting Venture.

Good Day in the neighborhood.  Enjoy the episode.

List Building: Necron Decurion - MSU

After a few 1k Tournaments, I have taken a bit of a step back from my Necrons. My initial lists focused on Deathstars, largely centered on Orikan and a blob of Lychguard. The issue is the full star with all its buffs often ran up nearly half the army's point cost. What I found was that this limited the tools in the army to deal with tough or numerous targets.

T-Shirt Design Contest - Voting

Hey everyone, we've tallied our favorite designs and trimmed it down to a top three. Now it is up to you guys to help us choose.

A quick note on the designs - two of them incorporate the blog's banner art. In order to get these printed in full color, we would need to order 50 or more. For these options I have included grayscale and full color versions. If one of these designs wins, and we get 50 or more orders (including our own) we will order the full color version. If not it will be grayscale instead.

Hobby Challenge Check In: April - Riptide

Hey all, just wanted to provide a quick update on my own hobby progress. April was a pretty slow month on the painting front, but I managed to knock out the second Riptide for my Tau.
