Daemons: Ready for BoLSCon 2010...

...er, WarGames Con 2010.  (I'm so confused.)  Also I've got some tips for you tournament goers out there.

Let's take a look at the list...

...and the rest of the pictures.
Basically, I wanted everything to fit in one box for transport and storage, though of course I'll pull them out and put them on the display board when I'm there for easy transport from table to table.

Everything is painted.  If I can get the Not-So-Super-Secret-Army done to my satisfaction, I'll go through and make some touchups (especially to the Fiends), but for the most part I'm satisfied.

My tip for the tournament is this: I always print a copy of my army list on nice cardstock and thermal seal it.  I can write on it with a washable marker if I need to - for example, to add up victory points in odd missions - and wipe it right off.  More importantly, I can grab it quickly without having to hunt among papers.

I'm also going to print labels with my name, email, and blog address to put on the army lists I'm going to be given to give to my opponents.  That way, hopefully they'll stop by here to comment on the battle reports I'm sure to do.  Better not lose, Brent.

Thoughts?  Comments?

Great idea about the cardstock army list in a page protector!

Good luck with the Chaos Daemons at Wagames/BoLScon! Glory be to Chaos!

I also like to make card for any multi-wound choices, that way you can mark off when they have wounds versus dice or other nonsense on the table. Less cluttered.

Nice list - I prefer only two heralds and then something big and stupid as I feel that is daemon like. The 2 horror blocks are meh to me but it should be fun. 18 fiends is A+++ in my book and what any daemon player should bring. I might just have to remake a whole army with all the new plastic. I think my fiends will be out of chaos spawn. Fuck the metal multiboob shenanigans.

Goat - I'm glad you like the list!

I actually won a tournament once with two Heralds (as above)and a Great Unclean One with Breath. That actually worked quite well.

Two things stopped me. Evil Homer thought the 4 Heralds were better, and he's my nemesis so I tend to listen... even though he probably doesn't realize it. The other things was I want to enter the GUO in the painting competition.

The Horrors are a change. Normally I run the standard 5-man Plague Bearers. The change came because I found in non-objective games 4 units of PB's did practically nothing to help me win, whereas the times I used Horrors the additional shooting helped some. I'm not confident the change was an improvement, but I'm hoping it won't be a detriment.

Eventually I want to model riders for my Fiends. They're purple now only because I have more I want to do. I'd never drop the money on GW's metal monstrosities though, and using the old Cold Ones was much, much cheaper!

Cold One Fiends FTW. Eventually, that's what I'll do, though 8e appears to want me to use my Cold One Knights as actual Dark Elves! :O

Personally, I print a copy for the TO, one for myself, and one for every opponent, when I go to a Tourny.

Next time I will consider some sort of wound counting mechanism....perhaps eBay some old Epic Titan bases with Void Shield counters.

(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.

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."

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.

Ass.

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

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
