Dear Community, What army should I play in 2018?

Hey everyone, BC here.

Man it's been a long time since I did a blog post. I should do this more (ed. note: we all should); if anything it keeps me accountable to the hobby.

So as 2018 draws near, I want to be a better player (don't we all?). With my schedule and family and work commitments, my calendar is pretty tight for going to tourneys so I need to make the best bang for my buck. I will do that by playing one army this year and doing my best to get good with it. Too often I will play an army for a few games then get shiny model syndrome and switch armies.

This is where you come in faithful reader(s), I need your help picking my army for 2018. The list will change throughout the course of the year but I want to keep the faction the same throughout the year. So without further fanfare here are the choices in no particular order:

Facing The Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 61: Local Tournaments and Tyranid Strategy

What is up Everyone? Evan and Ron do a duet on local tournaments and some Tyranid strategies.  Ron is list building and trying to figure how to build his bugs, what he likes and doesn't like, and what hive fleet to use when he knows the meta.  Evan talks about the tournament he went to recently in Gate City, VA put on by Ricky Addington where he had a good weekend and lost to The Paul Murphy.  Both Paul and Ricky are part of the Forge the Narrative podcast.  Evan also goes down some key strategies, when to use certain stratagems, and gives an overall view of one of the many ways to play bugs in 8th edition.  It is a quick duet, so enjoy the show.

The bugs are coming out to play!

Facing The Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 60: Warzone: Atlanta and Renegade Open Recaps

What is up Everyone? Evan, Bryan, and Chandler work their way into a healthy discussion about the most recent tournaments they went to:  The Renegade Open and Warzone:  Atlanta.  Bryan starts the night off by going through his list, talking about some of the fun moments and crucial decisions he made, and the overall feel of one of the top tournaments in the Midwest.  Dave and Puck really know how to setup a fun and challenging event.  Chandler and Evan then breakdown their round by round games as they discuss some of the challenges that happened with the missions, some of the fun aspects of the opponents and games they played, and then talk about some of the finer moments of the tournament.  This is one of the Biggest Warhammer 40k Parties in the Nation and the men and women from the General Staff do a hell of a job putting it all together.

We've got a fever, and the only cure, is more Tournaments!
