Between Sociopaths and Jellys

Starting our own Invasion
We've been a little bit quiet over the last two/three weeks, as you may have noticed; Sorry! The beautiful irony is, for myself at least (I hold no accountability for the others), that all my time has been committed to painting my Scourge for Invasion, leaving no time whatsoever to post anything on our wonderous blog! When I say all my time I mean it too; I come home, put Dexter on (just finished season 4, and wow) and paint. I'm bored of it, my back is sore of it- why do us gamers put ourselves through this rushed ritual two weeks before a tourney? It's madness I tell you, Madness!

OB Resistance Lists

Is that a sword through in the helmet, or a tiny head? Maybe one of those rare dwarf hosts.
Us here at OB have been thinking about Resistance lately. I'm not talking about the difficulty of trying to push a sofa with rubber feet on a wooden floor, or getting the money you lent your brother a year ago back, no, I mean the lovely new(ish) race for our lovely Dropzone Commander! Well, of course I obviously meant that, this is a Zone blog... Anyway, to the point.

Lessons learned

Can you point to Eden Prime on this map?
Invasion is coming. Had you heard? I'm not sure we've mentioned this before, but Invasion is coming. INVASION IS COMING! What is Invasion? Only the largest, hottest Dropzone tourney in the world at the moment!

We here at Orbital Bombardment take tournaments seriously (another fact you may not have realised), and as such this is our woodstock, nay, our site of pilgramage. In fact, once an Invasion finishes we immediately start planning on our list for the next one (the level of our geekness has just hit me like a rock to the eye...)!

As well documented for the last few months I have been playing with Scourge, and I would like to think I have learnt a few things about our Jelly Overlords in my short(ish) time as a host. This post is going to feature the lessons I have learnt, and hopefully help some of you beautiful readers out there (and the ugly ones too!).
