Tale of Five Gamers Update

Period One for the ToFG ended on Dec 4th and unfortunately I was unable to complete any painting of my 500 point army, so Zero points for me for Period One so far. Epic failure! I did get everything built except for the Objective marker. I have until Period Two ends (Jan 7th) to get my games in, so I might be able to salvage some points.

For Period Two, my 1,000 point Blightlords list is (changes in red):
  • Daemon Prince (Mark of Nurgle, Wings) - 150 pts
  • 7 Plague Marines (Plague Champion w/PF, 2x Plasma Guns, Personal Icon, Rhino) - 271 pts
  • 7 Plague Marines (Plague Champion w/PF, 2x Plasma Guns, Personal Icon, Rhino) - 271 pts
  • 10 Chaos Space Marines (Aspiring Champion w/PF, Chaos Glory Icon, 2x Meltagun) - 220 pts
  • 1 Obliterator - 75 pts
  • 2 Objective Markers
  • Total: 987 pts
I started building my Obliterator last night since that seems to be the trickiest thing to build (lots of little pieces). I am hoping to have everything built before Christmas because I have some time off from work for the Holidays and I can concentrate on painting.

Still here...

Just a quick post to say that I am still around. I have been really busy the last month with family, work, illness, and holiday stuff, so I have not had much free time to work on hobby stuff. I have fallen behind in both my Tale of Five Gamers and the 40kFC 2010 Painting Challenge. Once Christmas has past, I should be able to get back to work and hopefully catch up on the ToFGs.

While I was sick for the past two weeks with a nasty sinus infection, I started reading book one of the Horus Heresy series, Horus Rising. This is the first Warhammer 40k novel I have read and I am really enjoying it. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series, and maybe reading some of the other series.
