Maelstrom XI June 09/10 2018

In the spirit of getting things organised early, the players pack for Maelstrom XI is available here.

Key points:

·         Consist of 1750 points or less
·         Be made up of 1-3 Detachments
·         Be Battle-forged (no Unbound armies)

Here's an opportunity to try out your army in preparation for the NZGT

Places are limited to 32 so get in early to avoid disappointment.

There will be an emphasis this year on people getting through their turns, so I would suggest that if you have a new horde army you might want to reconsider...

What has been happening?

Painting wise, not a lot I can tell you. Kids activities (plus their uncaring attitude towards me needing them to Go To Bed Early Please And Let Me Do Some Hobby Oh ForTheLoveOf....) and Real Life™ has been conspiring against my hobby mojo.

And this thing has been on my painting desk pre-New Year. I am painting it to fit with my Adepta Sororitas army - and yes it is armed with the Holy Trinity of Sisters weaponry (Bolter ... ok Heavy Gatling Cannon, Melta, and Heavy Flamer). 

I have actually finished painting both arms so I might just have to paint by section (i.e. lower leg, upper leg. head, etc.) to get it finished. And yes I bought it assembled thanks for asking why the armour plates were stuck on, thanks again...

A lot more model to paint with a Fine Detail brush than expected

Speaking of upcoming tournaments, I have almost finished the players pack for Maelstrom XI. This will be up on Facebook and I will look to register it as an ITC event as well. It will be 32 players maximum. 

I also registered for Fields of Blood in September, which presents me with a number of headaches as in what to take.

I could take:
Custodes. Small army i.e 20-23 models(!), I have painted all the troops so would need to buy/paint all the 'cool stuff' 
Deathwatch. Unlikely as they don't have a codex and the list is cool but too... bitsy at the moment.
Space Wolves. Rumoured to be getting a codex around May-ish, I could use FoB to signal the return of the Rout. 
Other? Who knows. Suggestions? I do have Sororitas and Astra Militarum and Word Bearers but something new could be interesting. 

What I do know is that I need more game time. I have had two games this year vs Pete Dunn which have been a good learning curve for me (putting things into action rather than watching them happen on a nearby table). I need to test my Custodes list that's for sure!
