Game 1 Results, WAR Games Con

Herr Fernseher here again, Brent's temporary lackey and correspondent in the field.  Turns out Brent played his first game with Kenny (president?) of 40k Wrecking Crew.  The couple times I stopped by their table, the tension seemed high, but Brent told me afterward it was a great, competitive game, which is what the Wrecking Crew pride themselves on.  Interestingly, Kenny is one of the few people I trusted yesterday, thanks to his purity seal.  I didn't see it on him today, so I kept my distance.

This guy's arm was as big as mine and Brent's put together, so I kept back, just in case Brent was pissing him off.
Cliffsnotes: results and a personal note on the current leader of the pack.  And your pixfix, of course.




 
 Despite primary, secondary, and tertiary objectives, these two scored a perfect tie.  With 80 tables in play, this put them in the middle of the pack, Brent on table 42, Kenny on table 41 for game 2.  The one other Wrecking Crew member I've seen is on table two for the second game.

Nice presentation board

Reflections of the Past

Watch where you put your hands around here...

This is a Tyranid titan.  Sorry the picture is so dark, but I didn't want to spoil the fact that he is crouching in the shadow of vehicle ten times his size.
Behold the ridiculously large aircraft.  See how the Hierophant cowers in the background?

Little Guy, Giant Headache
The Great Conductor holds court.  And yes, he does seem very happy to be here.


And on a personal note, as a former goateed Eldar player, it was good to see a goateed Eldar player on Table 1 just now.  Big Red is not the only one glad to be here.

And here was Mission 1:

Good pics, and thanks for the Scenario sheet, it's nice to know what the players are up against. Go Team Brent!

Actually, Brent's first name is Edward. Really. (And thanks. I was once a shutterbug, and this event is actually making me more interested in photography than wargaming. Credit where due: Brent is taking lots of good ones too. Typically he takes quick flash shots, which often turn out better than my slow, no-flash shots.)

Sigh. That is a LOT more...vibrant...than our Tournaments. :(

(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.

Ass.

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

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
