This last week, I traveled down to Denver to Shieldbreakers Games. For a store in a strip mall, it is rather spacious. It had room for many more tables than were set up. They have 7 built table with a ton of terrain. However, they have enough space to fit double or triple that number. I played 2 games here against 2 of their veterans. One game against Salamanders, which I one handily. The second against a Tau list built for tournament play. This included 6 Broadsides, 2 Riptides, Some Crisis Suits, and a buff Commander. He was also using the Tau Dataslate. It was a tough game, but I pulled it out pretty handily by turn 3 and won the game turn 5. Both games were fun and I will be returning on Friday nights for their 40k night.

January 25th 1750pt Tournament at Gryphon Games
All Supplements allowed
All Character Dataslates allowed
I am looking forward to this tournament. I am anxious to see what the people in Fort COllin deem competitive.
February 8th 1850pt Tournament
Everything is allowed.
Forgeworld, Stronghold, Escalation, Super Heavies, EVERYTHING!
I was hesitant at first to go to this tournament. I saw some people playing with the Aquila Standpoint and a Revnant Titan with be used I heard. I also saw someone using some of the Dataslates and other Stronghold configurations.
I want to play in this tournament so I can attempt to win with nothing but things from Codex Dark Eldar and Codex Eldar. If I win some money, I think I might pick up the Stronghold book. I liked what I saw in it, and if tournaments in these parts are going to continue to allow such things, I might want to use one of them. I do own an Aegis and a couple Bastions so I am sure I can come up with something.
So overall, I am a little excited to see the Colorado community embracing the tournament scene. I am reluctant to say I will not be going to the Las Vegas Open this year. I know it is sold out at this point, but I do not have the funds to go on such an expensive trip. I know a couple dozen people going and I know it would be a great trip. I wish all of you luck and hope everyone does well!
Now I have been doing some hobbying while I have been here. Here is a picture of the completed Wave Serpents I have done. I will be working on some Dire Avengers and my Farseer model in the next week or so. For now, here are the Serpents.
|First models I have ever highlighted. I think they turned out ok. Still need to do some engine work on them.|
