Brent's 1500pt Tournament, October 8th!

Actually, I'm not sure how much claim I have to the whole thing, but if it's a train wreck you can pretty much bet I'll catch the responsibility for it.

It's going to be this Saturday at Galaxy Books and Comics in Wichita Falls, Texas.  If you're from out of town - and you probably are - email your 1500 point army list in advance to secure your spot.  Assuming you've done this, your rate is ten bucks at the door, all of which will go right into the prize pool.

(If you're a local, you have to both turn in your list and pay in advance, otherwise you're going to pay the door fee.)

The list you turn in will be the list you use on Saturday.  There are no changes on the day.

Be there no later than 9:30am.  The tournament starts at BE THERE AT 9:30 AM!
3308 Kemp Blvd # 2 Wichita Falls, TX 76308 (940) 692-3200
All four missions for the tournament will be posted in advance here tomorrow.  They are all from the book, modified to include additional objectives worth battle points.

I may post the rubric on Friday - I haven't decided yet.

If you have any questions, post them below.  You should know, the few lists I've already seen are top notch, so this should be a fairly competitive event.

(If you're a local, email your list to me directly.  Turning them in to Larry is also fine, but he's forwarding them to me.  To be clear, I need them prior to Saturday.)

My email is brent AT-SYMBOL strictlyaverage DOT com

(Or NotBrent...  Take that, SpyBots!)

Check this space for more information tomorrow!  Hope to see you there on Saturday!

Kind of off topic....but where did you find that cape for the model pictured above? Looks awesome!

Brent said...

No worries! It's not like this topic is relevant for most of the readers anyway.

It's from the Warriors of Chaos Fantasy Line - the Chaos Warrior. With a little modification, a Space Marine chest plate fits right on.

Wish I could make it out there this weekend Brent. Maybe after school is done you guys will hold something next year and I can go tear things up with you guys :)

Was good seeing you at 'ard boyz though!

Man, really wish I could make this one. I'm a fan of 1500, so I hope this becomes a new habit. Have fun, hope it runs smooth

Ps..I've been lurking through your Brotherhood work, very nice! I really like the bits-mix you have going

Hey Brent, I saw you at the 2nd Ard Boyz and that Practice Ard Boyz you did at galaxy (I play SW, played Goatboy in Ard Boyz, and need a haircut, if any of those ring any bells, lol).

I think about 5 of us from Denton are planning on going, bringing Mech SWx2, Hybrid BA, Deathwing Termies, and some kind of GK (Jim always changes his mind the morning of...), so that should be pretty fun, so long as we don't all end up playing each other :-P

We don't usually play 1500 points at our store, so i'm sure it'll be an interesting/fun change.

Anon: Hey man! Yea, I remember, and I'm glad you guys are making the trip up.

I'm going through the lists I have now and I'm 99% that all five of you are represented. I'll be putting up the Missions post in about an hour, and I'll be asking players to drop a line to confirm their spot.

Being the internet, I just need first names and an initial! Gotta protect your anonymity, even if I don't protect mine. :)

Yeah, we're all in the names listed (Jim, Richie, Eric, Brenden, Jonathan (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.

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.


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

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
