Been kinda busy...

It's been a while since I last updated this, so I'll quickly run through what I've been up to, and what I'm working on.

Firstly, Cowcon 2008 was a blast. I placed 10th out of 23 players with my Witch Hunters overall.

Game 1: Massacre Loss vs fester's Pirate Orks.
Had a great game, but luck wasn't with me, nor was the rather full table of terrain. At the end of the game, I had no models left, for just under 1000pts worth of dead orks. This game was the second largest points difference of the tournament (and won me the "Try harder son" award).

Game 2: Major Victory (or Victorious Slaughter, I can't remember) vs Doug William's Dark Eldar.
Had a great opponent that whilst they were shaky on their rules, was still a lot of fun. Had a wonderfully painted army.

Game 3: Major Victory (or Victorious Slaughter, I can't remember) vs Rebecca Stear's Marines/Sisters
We got to see a sisters vs sisters rumble, as well as a Space Marine Sergeant with a power fist, chase an Immolator for four turns without ever doing anything to it. Once again a lot of fun and another well painted army.

Game 4: Draw vs Martin Frost's Eldar
The table we played on made it impossible for me to move a vehicle without taking dangerous terrain rolls. Needless to say, my sisters had to footslog it across the board. Eeked out a draw against a great opponent.

Game 5: Minor Loss vs Alex Rick's Dark Eldar
Got too overconfident and got jumped by unit after unit as they came out of the webportals. Still had fun tank shocking anything I could with Rhinos.

Photos from the event can be found HERE.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone at Cowcon 2009.

Secondly, I've been absent due to my brother getting married up in Carins, so I headed up there for a week and a half. Had a nice relaxing break and a great wedding.

So now I'm back in Rocky with a couple of projects ahead of me. The main one of these being to get my sister's finished off, hopefully for a 2000 point tournament in Mackay in early November. The other project, and the one that is currently taking up all of my time is writing a small campaign, ending in a pair of Apocalypse battles for Rockhampton Wargamers Guild. Expect to see some teasers for that shortly.
