Tournament Wrap Up - Mulligan's June RTT

Last weekend I made a bit of a trip to Mulligan's for their June RTT, which was an ITC event with 16 players showing up. I had decided to go pretty last minute, so I took a Necron list I was pretty comfortable with and took a Wraith-star list with the Start Collecting! Necrons formation, the Retribution Phalanx.

Hey Everyone,

Here is my fourth flying hive tyrant pose conversion.  This guy has been sitting around ~95% finished for a while. I finally got around to finishing him, and dug up some WIP shots for a post.

FTGT Painting WIP Wednesday - Spyder Bases

Hey guys, back again for another WIP Wednesday update. Things have been a bit slow the last couple weeks, despite knocking out the Tankbursting Mawloc over the weekend. The Warhound was temporarily shelved, but I should be getting back to him next week.

FTGT Painting Showcase: Mawloc

I recently had a chance to finish up a model that's been brewing for over a year now - another Mawloc making a dynamic entry. This one is bursting up through an Ultramarines Rhino.

FTGT Ron back in the (2 part epoxy putty) mix

Hey Guys!

Ron here, back from a somewhat lengthy 40k break.  I hung out with Evan and Chandler last weekend and managed to sneak in a pair of 1850pt Nova style games.  These were my first 40k games in 10 months, and they reminded me that I actually do still enjoy playing the game .  Yes, some rules are creeping more than a guy in a white van with a mustache, but Tyranids are still my first tabletop hobby love.  As Sheryl Crow put it, the first cut is the deepest.

Throwback Thursday: Fantasy Tournament Rules

I was digging through a box of old books recently and came across the Warhammer Fantasy Battle Book from Fantasy 5th Edition.

I flipped through it and happened to stumble across some pages that caught my eye: Tournament Rules

WIP Wednesday: Warhound Titan Assembly

Hi all! Back again with another WIP Wednesday from the FTGT Painting Desk. I've been putting in a lot of the unglamourous early work required in a big kit like this Warhound Titan. Last week was literally simply laying out pieces and cleaning flash and mold lines from larger pieces. This week I've finally been able to begin the process of assembly.

Facing The Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 39: 40K Army Lists, Tyranids, and Thoughts on GW

What is up Everyone? This week on the Podcast, Evan, Ron, and Chandler sit down to talk about the hobby, what they have been working on in the last couple of weeks, and talk about the army list.  The Boys discuss their Space Marine lists using the New Space Marine Supplement, their wish lists for Nids, and then talk about some of their ideas about what GW could be doing in the near future.  They also discuss thoughts on some upcoming tournaments, and Evan talks about his painting service FTGT Painting.

The Lists are out, and clearly, the Nids need some help!
