Goatboy Vs Brent, Extra Pics

Here are some extra photos from my game with Goatboy last weekend, so if you haven't seen the Video Battle Report over on Bell of Lost Souls... what are you waiting for?

I liked Goat's army a lot - it's really one of the few builds I've seen that I believe maximizes some of the most annoying characteristics of the book!
The battleline.
My line.  The plan wasn't terrible, but my round was!
Immobilized and Weapon Destroyed and Wrecked... talk about your roadblocks!
The Lone Wolf eyeballing Crowe...
...before squaring off!  The Lone Wolf Vs Crowe... all game!
This is the only one that really requires explanation - my Rune Priests rolled three 6's for Living Lightning!  It was an awesome start to my anti-Purifiers turn... but it didn't help.  The Psychotrop Grenades screwed me but good!

*pats Brentus*

From what I saw of the battle I think you needed to be more aggressive. Goatus dropping your Rhinos in front of you hurt but I felt like you gave up on midfield too early in the game which allowed him to maximise his LOLGRENADES on any unit which came along.

Pretty army though =D. When are you visiting?

Thomas aka Goatboy said...

I'm just a meanie. But It is an extremely redundant list that I can easily sacrifice units as need be. It lets me play aggressive as needed. I got some new ideas on changing it up a bit - as I like the grenades but I wonder if I am soaking too much into them. Blargh!

And a lot of the time I hate depending on a d6 roll for something interesting to happen. Rad Grenades - they work all the time so good - but the PystrokeAssHoles can be hit or miss. But when they hit it is a like a big freight train of FU.

Ya Psychos are great fun whilst Rad are just evil all the time. Can I always roll a 2 please?

I think 9 Purifiers + Techie x2 is excessive. I really feel 5-6x Purifiers + Techie is fine but you then have to decide if you run psycannons or not. Hell Purifiers + Xenos Inquisitor could go down well to save points but since you're running Crowe you can't double them up.

So why jump on the GK bandwagon if you feel theya re obnoxious bullshit?

Yay more pics! That was a very fun bat rep to watch.

Where is the leafblower game? WTF! NO LOVE!

(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.

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."

Don't feed the trolls!

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.
