A Few Reasons To Vote

What can I say?  This is a blatant attempt to buy your vote.  The hours are counting down... Vote Brent.

As an aside, what do folks think of Seekers in 40K?  I only have 5 currently, but with the new models coming out I'm taking a closer look at them.

...a closer look...

(Sad, I know.)

If only somebody had written some kind of Daemon review...

Seekers are pretty cool I think. For only 3 points more than Daemonettes you get cav movement and an extra attack. While I'd consider Fiends better overall (T4, S5, H&R), Seekers are more for killing infantry and MCs, particularly those hunkered down in terrain. I6 and grenades is going first almost all the time, and 5 rending attacks apiece is going to leave a mark.

Their obvious downside is T3 5++, so a stiff breeze or some whiffed rending could see Tacticals slapping them around. Lack of Hit & Run really hurts here.

If you've maxed on Fiends, Seekers are a good pick. If you bring Skarbrand, Seekers are a good pick. If you just want more rending, go Seekers.

You're always welcome to link your Daemon Review on these types of post Chumby! I always forget the resources that are out there.

Mmm... I should set up some cross-linking for those type of things.

What about a comparison against Khornedogs, which is what I currently have? And what unit size is considered a 'minimum'?

Those are the thoughts I'm thinking.

Khorne dogs are for cracking open light armor (S5 w00t) and munching on soft or weakened units. Seekers go after tougher stuff, particularly armored opponents and infantry. S3 + rending isn't going to cut it against tanks, at least relative to what Fiends and Hounds can do.

I think you'd have to go pretty big with Seeker units considering how fragile they are. 10 feels about right.

I've just been getting into Seekers myself once I heard new plastics were dropping. Then I can finally make my Slaanesh chariots and maybe do up a Skarbrand list featuring them.

skarbrand can make an all over Slaanesh list fly. I want to like seekers, I really do, and I think they are the class of a relatively week FA slot. I just think generally better places to spend those points.

In game, I'd be happy fielding a decent sized squad of them. Painting wise, I think they're going to rock!

The latter will certainly encourage the former for me...!

(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.

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.

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".

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.
