Daemons! 2K Tournament List! Hurrah!

The Master Manipulator (every store needs one) is hosting a 2K tournament today.  It's going to be a smallish affair, since it was wasn't really advertised outside of town, and yours truly was planning on bringing his Necrons.

That is, until the Client Pimp in Question acquired his new Necron army from Everbody's Brother From Another Mother Big Whit.

Who traded off his only painted army..?  Not sure I understand that one Whit, but I do look forward to you finishing your Guard army.  (Also, I gather the 'Crons weren't performing the way he wanted them to - sometimes a book just isn't a good fit.)

Anyway, as always happens when someone even thinks of divesting themselves of an army, the Client Pimp in Question whips off his magic Helmet of Mind Control and teleports to the wherever he needs to be to make a trade.

One day we'll go through his numbers and you'll see what I mean.  The boy is a seriously talented merchant - so much so I gave up the game before it got good and started and asked him to act as a broker in my interests...

...watching him work both sides of a transaction is a scary process, but it was the right thing to do.  Hell, I'd probably have nothing left at this point but a few Daemons and a ton of painting commission debt!  I'd cry over my paint pots every night and wonder whatever happened to all my toys.

But where was I..?

Oh, yeah.  Necrons.  The Client Pimp in Question decided he was playing his new army at today's event. With Tinfoil Hat Tim also in attendance with his army, had I brought mine it would be three Necron armies in one small tournament.

Little Barrera's Dark Eldar would enjoy that just a bit too much, methinks.

I considered taking the Sisters, but I'm not well versed with the rules just yet.  I don't have my Bugs! ready and I'm sort of burned out on the Brotherhood at the moment.

So why not Daemons?  My thinking was, I'll tweak my standard list for a bit of fun and viola!  Fun tournament!  Here's the list...

It's the 3rd Soul Grinder I recently acquired that did it.  I've long maintained Daemon Princes are better, but SG's aren't bad by any stretch.

Seems fun. But DPs are def better IMO too. Much harder to kill. I just got beat up by 3 last night, and I was playing GK! (a tourney list vs my "models that are painted" list). It was still a fun game, but I kinda feel like DPs are an auto include.

It's all good as long as it's not Imperial...

(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.


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

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
