NRVCon Wrap Up

NRVCon 2016 is in the books, and while the 40k tournament was a bit smaller than we hoped, it was still a great time. Thanks to everyone who played. You can see the results on Torrent of Fire. Also, before I get into the event, a ton of thanks to the TO Elle for running the event.  I had three great games and ended up taking home Renaissance Man, being runner up, third in BPs, and second in Paint Score, but more on that toward the end.

Painting Desk: Dark Eldar Commission

Over in my FTGT Painting Studio I've been working on a Dark Eldar army commission for Bryan. It's taken a bit longer than I originally anticipated, and is still ongoing, but I have some of the first completed models to show off. The army is being done in the Kabal of the Flayed Skull scheme. I've finished off the Venoms and Razorwings, and started on the Reavers and Warriors.

Facing the Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 36: We Are BACK!

What is up Everyone? This week on the Podcast, Evan, Bryan, and Chandler are back at it again.  After a little time off because of some changes in our lives, the boys are back to talk about everything that has kind of happened in the last couple of months.  We talk about Evan's new Painting Service, discuss the thoughts on where GW is going, Talk about the new books/formations that were rumors at the time, and finish out by talking about the hobby in our lives.  So join us as we roll through everything in our minds.

The boys are unleashed which can only mean a lot of ranting, questions, and good humor.

NRVCon List Building III - 1,850 NOVA Necrons

As I mentioned last time when I was reworking my Eldar list, I also had started considering going back to the Necrons. For the last week or so I've been tweaking a few varieties of list and think I've settled on the Necron list I'm most likely taking. This list uses the Retribution Phalanx formation from the Start Collecting! Necrons box.

NRVCon List Building II - NOVA 1,850 Eldar

Last week I posted a couple lists I was considering for the NRVCon 40k Tournament at the end of April. After my game with Aidan, in which I was thoroughly trounced by Aidan's Daemon Incursion list (which went on to win elphilo's RTT at Huzzah Hobbies the following day), I felt a need to go back to the drawing board a little bit for the Eldar list. I'm also debating jumping back to the Necrons as the tournament is quickly approaching.

FTGT Turns 3!

A little belated, but the blog has just recently turned three years old. Despite the slowdown in content (and podcasts) over the last 6 months or so, we're still working on generating content and keeping involved with the readers we've gathered over the last three years. It is thanks to you that we keep coming back to this, even as life gets full and busy at times.
