Yes my lovely wife has also been giving me lots of painting time - in fact telling me to 'get back to it' when I get distracted lol! Bikes are coming along, my 'Witch of the Desert' turned out awesome, board is done, everything else just needs the odd re-touch (damn metal mini's). picked up some extra basing supplies from our esteemed sponsor Tactics today. Very happy with the way it's all coming together (still doubt it will beat Olly's Tau though!) - loads of character :)

Coming back on topic, how is everybody's painting and prep coming along?

I'm not that far off finished thanks to my awesome wife allowing me 12hrs of uninterrupted painting yesterday (hands are a bit sore today!)

Just the disco ball on my display board to do and thats finished!
Lol - you're in the wrong thread :D

Although, I've just realised my Big Mek needs a powerfist, and I don't own one... Green stuff time!

how bad are the hidden lists? :cry:
To be frank? If I get the psychic powers/abilities off that I want, your generally better off letting me shout you a drink at the bar instead. :)
If not, and y'all play well. Its not unbeatable. Doubly so if dice turn against me :o

I heard ultimates is a cheese fest so came prepared.
Screamer star is very beatble.

Just ignore the Star and kill all the weak scoring units.

Avoid the star, or tie it hard with durable units as you do this, and win on objectives.

Fateweaver must be on the board to use his re-roll at this event, so target him and kill him and grimore fail becomes likely.

Just dont shoot the screamer star with its 2++ is up and delete the rest of the army and keep it bogged down in melee with units like Wraithknights.

Focus barrage weapons on the grimore holder and he'll fail a LoS eventually.

A screamer star takes 2-3 turns to chew down a wraithknight. More if it gets a 5+ or a 4++

Or get first turn and alpha strike it hard before it gets its powers going.
Essentially, get the troops.

Funnily enough - I would not describe the mix of armies being a "cheesefest" at any time over the last 6 years we've run the event. Not in a single year. Hard armies sure - but still lots of "take all comers" lists rather than many skews.
Previously yes, but this is 6th edition 8)
Until this edition/newer dexes (cough* tau) it can really come down to just having no chance from the get go. I never felt like that in 5th and always gave as good as i got but notice some things in this edition can just steamroll and make your opponent feel like there's no point playing the round. Not a whinge mind you just an observation.

As for centurions. Damn, thats a whole lot of ugly. Ive yet to meet anyone who actually likes the models myself. I think troy may be taking some though?

Your veiled insults continue to not be as clever as you think they are.

Because it can be ignored so easy. You pay a tax army wide for something that gets ignored half the time anyway.

Aaron, that was barely veiled at all. And I agree with it entirely.

Placed top 3 this tournament cycle with,
Grey Knights.
Space Marines/Blood Angels
Tau
Tau/Eldar
Sisters of Battle/IG
Chaos Daemons.

Clearly I must be an unskilled player who can only win with one codex!

My apologies.

Life must be hard with the vastly underpowered Eldar codex.

Just make do with some sub par wave serpents, eh?

I wasnt talking about u, I know this might be hard to believe but the world doesnt revolve around you I know ur a gd general. Insecure and thats y u display ur event records to make ppl take notice of you (which might seem like a personal attack but isnt or not my goal just an observation)

But you got to admit Tau have alot more take away enemies strenghts/defenses then any other force in the game...

I was just having a friendly lil dig at the Tau codex Aaron. My fault for not including a smiley face.

:lol:

There it is. Everyone can go back to what they were doing now.
