This is Brent; I'm back, baby!
First of all, big thanks to my Indentured Servant, Herr Fernseher. I think he did a bang-up job running my event coverage. For those who care, I want to point out I didn't edit his content nor would I go back later to adjust it. I don't believe in moderating someone's voice. Certainly he covered it in a different way than I would have but that's what I loved about it. I have literally hundreds of great photos he took, not to mention all my battle report photos... I hope you guys won't get tired of hearing about this event over the next month, 'cause that's going to happen.
CliffNotes: A quick review of the events and the people.
So, here's what I have to say about the 40K Wrecking Crew...
...I met Kenny, Mike, and of course Steve.
That's WCKenny, *I'm not sure what Mike's nic is*, and Black Blowfly.
They are absolutely chill people. I couldn't have been more surprised at how cool these guys were. They knew their game, were top-flight opponents, and were incredibly good sports.
I've had some negative things to say in the past about this club, but now I realize how much my opinion was colored by the one bad experience I had playing a member at an RTT years ago (that dude was a douche; I wish I could remember his name). In fact, now I'm wondering if that guy was WC at all, since he was the polar opposite of Kenny, Mike, and Steve. These guys represented what the hobby is about, and I couldn't have been happier to meet them.
I think I was most surprised at Steve. I saw him at Hard Boyz Chicago in 2009, but that doesn't mean I got to know him. When we'd meet at the event this last weekend, he'd grin and rattle off his, "Hey Buddy!" and he was so genuine that I couldn't help but laugh. What a character!
I'll let it go here, because I'm taking notes on an article I want to write about Clubs in 40K. Got to save some content, huh?
Doh! Ran out of time. More later - Brent

For better or worse, here's the updated Storm Raven.

So after a few weeks of downtime I finally uncollapsed the collapsible table and started work on the hobby again. It's fair to say Str...
