No, not because the name of the game sounds like a fabulous porn, but because while all of you are out kicking the crap out of each other, I'm at stupid graduation, getting my stupid degree.
That's stupid. Stupidly.
Okay, so I'm happy about graduating, even in my senior years... well, 34 seems that way sometimes, but I'm still irked GW changed everything this year - and why did they pick the most popular date for college graduations anyway?
I've set this post to publish on Saturday at 11am, the time most of you are playing Game 1 (or just waking up, for those who largely care less) and I'm walking the stage. I haven't decided if I'm going to wear anything under the gown yet.
Just for fun, here's the army I would have run this year. (Note: I'd actually have run Stelek's Daemon's list, but I was hoping to entice him to allow Breath of Chaos in, since I've learned from experience how useful it is.)
(4) Herald of Tzeentch, w Chariot, Gaze, Bolt, and Breath = 130
(3) Fiends, 6 strong with champ = 190
(5) Plaguebearers, 5 strong = 75
(1) Flesh Hounds, 10 strong, add Kharnak = 200
(2) Flesh Hounds, 10 strong with champ = 160
(3) Daemon Princes of Tzeentch, w Bolt and Breath = 170
That's my army, and it would have done well, I think. Not for nothing, I won 3 of the last 6 local tournaments with variations on a theme, so I'm convinced of its viability. Obviously heavy mech armies like Imperial Guard and Space Wolves Razorback variants are among the toughest opposition, but it can be done. As Evil Homer says - and his Mech Guard won 2 of the other 3 - his army tends to be geared toward killing MEQ, so having units with an invulnerable save and Eternal Warrior gave him fits.
The astute will realize I said 'among' the toughest... so what's the worst list to face? A properly done Vulcan Space Marine build, utilizing a Librarian with Null Zone. It's a pretty sure bet that's at Hard Boyz, but that challenge is what makes it fun.
Enjoy folks. I least I get a diploma.
