Website Under Construction

Nothing to report - the website is under construction now, so I'm fitting that between work and the start of school.


As a curiosity, one of the families we've worked with at the agency (Inheritance Adoptions) was selected by Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.  The reveal was last week, and the episode will air in about 8 weeks, but these last two weeks were crazy.

Just to fit some content in here, I have a tournament this weekend at the FLGS.  Hosted by Galaxy Comics and judged by the Master Manipulator (every store needs one), there will be numerous armies slugging it out, including my Daemons, Evil Homer's Guard, Big Whit's Chaos Space Marines, Gauthic's Dark Eldar, the Original Tony's White Scars, the Other Other Tony's Tau.., and so on and so on.

I'm still working out a list, and I'll admit I'm a bit directionless.  Do I include the Blood Crushers, even though I don't much like using them?  How about the 3 DP's of Tzeentch, which I enjoyed but didn't lead me to any brilliant wins?

I've had a vague plan to build toward, testing some ideas on the way.  Once idea I've put a lot of hope in was the Herald on Jugger in a unit of Bloodletters... and while it's been okay, it hasn't exactly run off.  I may have to shake things up and try something new.

Or should I?  You see, in the past it's been that thinking that's screwed me, where I end up taking something unfamiliar, something I have no experience using, and it usually bites me in the ass.

So in short, I'm going to run a variation of the lists I've used.  I don't think it will be brilliant but my goal is to represent myself well at this level - not necessarily win the whole thing.

That comes later.  I'm out - Brent

I have changed my chaos space marine list around. It just wasn't working with only 2 scoring units, so I've added 8 lesser demons to grab an objective. Dropped the berserkers for death guard(can actually scoot and shoot now), Dropped 2 oblits for 5 termies, and kept the dreadnought.
I have gotten to play test my list twice with some different missions against Mike's space wolves and holy crap has it worked out. I'm hoping that come tournament time it will still stand up to the other armies.

I too am contemplating changes...I put a 5 scoring unit list together this morning.

Of course I won't play it and probably won't change my list for the tournament. I still have an extra day to dither about it though.

I kinda feel like everyone else is changing theirs so I should change mine. Maybe not.

Well you have had success with your list and I have not 2 losses 1 draw made me re-think my plan. You had 2 wins and 1 draw, not much room for change. Did you see JWolf's battle report on bals were he had a blob unit full of power weapons? Sounds like a good way to hold and defend an objective. I don't know much about the guard codex, but it seems like a good idea. It maybe to much point wise to try with your list.

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

Strictly Average: 'cause 6-inches is all you get.

Brent, preferred 2-to-1 over Not Brent in a recent, scientific poll.

I'm a comment whore and this whore is getting no play.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Dethtron: "Again I feel obliged to remind you that trying to sound smart only works if you are."

MVB: "I am not one to join the unwashed masses of self-titled 40k experts out there distributing advice from their blogs about exactly how your list should be built..."

Shiner Bock on tap: that's how I choose hotels.

Don't feed the trolls!

MoD: "Welcome to Brent's head."

Dethtron: "...you could use that extra time to figure out a way to get your panties unbunched and perform a sandectomy on your vagina."

Dethtron: “When calling someone an idiot, it's generally best to avoid making grammatical mistakes.”

Warboss Stalin: "You know, if it actually WAS funny, maybe I wouldn't mind."

Mike Brandt: "It's not a successful bachelor party if you don't misplace someone".

"The Master Manipulator (every store needs one): "...now, enough stroking."

Kirby: "I don't know about gropings. Seriously, Brent, keep it in the pants, please."

Loquacious: "No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get Hugs & Gropings or Stalks Jawaballs into Brent's little tribute."

Captain Kellen: "I rate this article a Brent on the Faith Hill to Nancy Pelosi scale!"

Drathmere: "Come for the balls, stay for the Brent? Kind of disturbing, man."

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

Isabelle: "So, thank you for supporting your local and not so local unicorns. A noble gesture like that can show some scared kids out there that they don't have to hide from everyone and it's ok to be who they really are."

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Lauby: "Is it left over from that time you thought that you could just complete step one 12 times to meet the mandates of that court order?"

Not Brent: "I guess we'll have to read on and find out. Signed, Not Brent. Especially today."

Cynthia Davis: "I think the scrolling text is from Glen Beck's new book."

Grimaldi: "Spamming certain units creates interesting possibilities but also fatal weaknesses."

Purgatus: "Math can inform decisions. It cannot make decisions."

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

SinSynn: (To Brent) "Curse you and your insidious influence on the internets..."

Dave G (N++): "You know you're an internet celebrity when your following is more akin to tabloids."

I prefer the term Internet Personality (or IP) myself, seeing as how I coined it.

Lauby: "Your attempt to humanize him as failed. I feel nothing but scorn for his beard - it's like a warcrime or something."

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.


I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
