Tuesday Tut... Battle Report?

Hey guys, Huron here again. I know, I missed last week, I am a lazy git, but I have an excuse. As my last post said I was sick all week 2 weeks ago. Well tests are in and there is a whole mess of little things wrong but its official, I have Diabetes. The good news is it only is type 2, which is treatable and in the long run I may be able to cure it through diet and exercise. Bad news, I need to start medication to regulate it amongst other things and I can no longer eat all the delicious sugary goodies I love so dear.

But enough with the depressing stuff. I recorded a Tutorial for today but upon viewing the finished product I was unhappy with some of the camera angels and so need to reshoot. So instead of a tutorial today please except this humble battle report instead.

Battle Report 8 features my Howling Griffons pitted against one of my Arch Nemesis Mike's Chaos Marines. This is a Challenge Pyramid game and if Mike wins he gets his second defense. If I win I knock him from the top and take his place. Good stuff.

Enjoy the battle.

GAH! Another defeat. I just don't know what do you against those wily Plague Marines. While yes I could change my army up completely and use something different to pound some face, then it really wouldn't be my army anymore would it?

See you guys next time.

Happy Friday!

Hey guys, just a quick heads up. There will not be an update post today. I have been under the weather this week and do not have anything ready to share with you. Never fear, I will be back next week with more 40k and maybe even some Warmachine goodness.

Thank you for understanding.

It's Official!

It's Official, Blood Angels in April and I am excited. New Plastic and Metal models. That could be a lot of things. One thing is for sure they are going to hit hard, drop pod in, and be able to field more Dreadnoughts then most. But then again, they always have been able to. Time to finish the Griffons because come April I'll be painting Blood Angels, or maybe one of their successors. Okay, back to painting...

Happy Friday!

Hey guys Huron here, Happy Friday. Well as promised Fridays in 2010 bring you a variety of possibilities. Today I have a new battle report for you featuring Nix of the Dead Tau Project. Nix and I have been playing a lot lately and I am sure you can expect our games to only escalate now that he has pledged to play a lot more games in 2010 and up is expertise with the Eldar, a task he has already accomplished 10 fold in the last few months, I shutter to think of his effectiveness with them this time next year.

Enough talk, on to the game:

There you have it, a close game verse the Eldar, I suspect soon Bill with be changing the name of his army to the Dead Howling Griffon Project as his skill level keeps getting higher.

Well guys, let me know what you thought about the game and I will see you again on Tuesday for Tutorial Tuesday with How to Paint Howling Griffons part 3.

First Battles of 2010, now in HD

Hey guys, Huron here. I hope you all had a fun and safe New Years celebration. I had a good time but have to admit I was quite hung over on the 1st which is weird as I quit drinking early. I blame the Absinthe. Anyways, January 2nd saw me playing in the first of many tournaments I will be participating in over the next several months, the Iron Fist League 4th Quarter/End of the year 40k tournament which was originally supposed to happen back on the 19th but was snowed out.

I have to say, though I only managed to tie all 3 games, I had a blast (though I could have used less Eldrad in 2 of my 3 games, sigh). The Griffons preformed fairly well and though I am convinced my basic tactics are solid I still think the army needs some tweaking. Fritz's recent Youtube post about thinking and playing in the future has really got me thinking so expect some new things from me in the near future relating to that.

But on to the coverage. Below you will find 4 Youtube videos. The first 3 are some intro coverage and Battle Reports for games 1, 2, and 3, for me. The 4th video is the tournament results and some after tournaments thoughts I recorded this morning. Check it out and let me know what you think.

So after recording the aftermath while I was uploading things I went around and checked out some other blogs and youtube posts. As I said before, Fritz's Youtube post about playing in the future really got me thinking and I expect it will cause me to change the armament of my tactical units some what. Right now I am looking at making them a bit more versital and may very well be mixing in some flamers in the near future, but more on that in a future post.

For now, you have my first Tuesday Tutorials in 2010 to look forward to tomorrow. I will be posting part 2 of my How to Paint Howling Griffons series, which like the rest of my videos have gone HD. I will be discussing the inital steps in painting the yellows and depending on how long the video is, as I still have to edit the raw footage, painting the base coats of the red and applying the first wash.

See you guys tomorrow.
