Using All My Resistance To Wait

mMm Shiny

My plan for armies for a long while now has been: Shaltari (tournament awesomeness) > Scourge (fun and general sillyness) > Resistance (art project time). My Shaltari were more or less finished when I first put this plan about, and I had just started my Scourge army. Although I am now two-thirds into having the models I need for my Circus Of Legs, I made the critical error of picking up a Resistance starter set at Invasion.

And oh my, how they shine...

Critical Engagement: Assault on Atlantia

Re-load your guns and double check your dropships fuel, as we are happy to present our second one day, 1500 point clash tournament of the year on Saturday 1st November! There will be three games, and we will be using the tournament pack Hawk have produced. The venue will be in Tolworth, South-West London, and if this doesn't excite you already the tickets are only £10!

Orbital Bombardment unleashed; Invasion deemed a success!

This is what faced us when we entered......

Invasion was AWESOME!
Here is a round-up of the weekend, some lovely pictures and some results thrown in too.
When we turned up, we were greeted not by smiling faces - but by a mahoosive Ares. The thing is about 600mm tall (that's 2 foot in old money). It is amazingly detailed and painted exceptionally well.

Preparing for Invasion

Good day assorted peoples of the Dropzoning variety! I bring you greetings, fair tidings, and Invasion!

September has crept up something fierce this year, and this weekend Hawk will be hosting their biannual tournament and open weekend. It combines Invasion, a two day 1500 point tournament, and a decent sized display of brand new models, current models, and potentially new exciting info for the next big things (last year we had artwork featured in Reconquest, and the original drawings of the spaceship displayed at Salute, not to mention a few Resistance goodies)! The OB team managed to rock out with our socks out last year, and picked up 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th place, as well as the team award (Skullsword even won the raffle, jammy git). Although we are of course hoping to do as well this time round, but we are certainly taking nothing for granted!

Here are the lists we will each be bringing to the party, and a brief explanation of how it will work. Well, should work...

Hi there fello dropzoners, 
I though it was time to give some tips and advice for the PHR when facing certain forces or specific models. Also some ideas on deployment.

On killing things, and making it snappy

I often find that I'm behind on things. Now, this isn’t always a bad thing in life, and for me as for many others it’s not that we haven’t done things yet, it’s just that we haven’t got there yet.

This is all by way of say I’m still playing with the army I started out with i.e basic wave 1 Shaltari, and apart from the odd won blister and one or two jaguars I haven’t really added much more. Still got the Kukris, still got no firstborns, and Tomahawks are always in my list*.

This makes me feel more than a tad fraudulent, given that I and others helped play test the units in the first place. Almost like I know a hidden weakness to them that I haven’t as yet divulged but will use to my advantage in tournaments.** hahahha. Ahem.
