BoLSCon 2010, Double Down!

Well, I just paid for my spot in this year's BoLSCon event, and I couldn't be more excited!  I'm not only signed up for the 40K Tournament but the Doubles Event as well - and I'm lucky enough that the man...

...the uncontested King of Eldar...

...has agreed to allow me to run as his ally and aim a Brightlance at the barbarian Monkeigh.

My list from last year.  It wasn't my best then; certainly it will need an update this year, given the changes in the meta-game.  Assuming you believe in such things.  Which I do...
Last year, Game 1 - the Eldar routed the Daemons.

I doubt I'll take my Eldar into the weekend tournament though - I've been working too hard on my Daemons not to put my trust in them.

I'm not affiliated with BoLS in any way, other than as a fan with a blog-link.  I say that to say this: I couldn't have had a better time last year - in my almost 20 years of gaming, it was by far the best event I've attended.  Make plans to go, man!  (Oh, and you girl-gamers, too, I guess - that's the in thing now...)

You've got competition again about King of Eldar :P

Fritz said...

There will be much planning and scheming for this! I am psyched for the doubles and the event! I've also slipped Larry a $20 to make sure we face Jawaballs and his team mate to finally settle the score!

Brent said...

Well Gauthic - I wasn't that clear I guess - but I wasn't referring to myself as the King of Eldar, but was dropping a not-so-veiled-hint that it was Fritz himself.

Fritz, I'm looking forward to it, teaming with the Saim-Hann, as well as the planning and scheming that goes along with it.

I've got money set aside for whatever Eldar madness we can cook up: whatever weapons we can cram in, I'm game and ready to drop some cash... 'cause why the hell not?

Oh, and getting some revenge on Jawa ain't a bad deal either.

It's time like these that being the TO makes me sad. Maybe I'll be able to talk you guys into some sort of silly pairs game one evening.

I've been having fun playing a pretty gimpish Eldar list with Waveserpent guided ramming missiles - I want to try my hand with Eldar against both of you.

(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.

Stalking Jawaballs since 2009.

Jawaballs: "My butt just tightened up."

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

Brent: emptied the Kool Aid and DRINKING YOUR MILKSHAKE with an extra-long straw.

Unicorns don't exist.

Home of the Stormbuster, the Dyson Pattern Storm Raven.

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

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

"You should stop writing for everyone else and worry about your crappy blog." - Anon.

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.

Strictly Average: The Home of Hugs and Gropings.

Don't feed the trolls!

MoD: "Welcome to Brent's head."

Competitive is Consistent.

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.
