"I walked into Banana Republic today. If I staged a coup, would they get the joke?"
So yeah, there you go. Think about it, let the cerebralness of it all sink into you like a car into snow. Then be sure to share it. Make it a meme, make it famous. So there you go.
In other news, I got a couple games in on vassal recently. Its tough, because I tend to start playing around midnight. Which is a terribly dumb idea. While free-association brought on by sleep-deprivation got me through college, its not as much fun now that i've got a 1.5-yr old alarm clock. So yeah, i haven't gone to bed before 330 in a couple nights. Ooog, I feel wiped out. Quick strategy rundown: I'm playing Tau. No surprise there, I love the fishheads. Speaking of which, WHAT THE HECK THQ. I picked up Dawn of War years ago, and loved it almost as much as Starcraft. When I wasn't Dragoon rushing, I was Fire-Warrioring. Those guys are awesome, and Crisis suits are a waste of population slots. Then I pick up 40k: surprise! Fire warriors are not in fact awesome. I have 48 of them, all painted, and no more than 6 ever see the table. Thanks THQ. Oh, and I love Crisis suits. The old stealth suits are ok, the new ones are clunky. So I don't mind that every Tau army must include a bunch of Crisis suits and Broadsides. Its great, I love their aesthetics and picked Tau due to them and Fire Warriors. Back in the day, I loved Mechwarrior. I loved me some Maurader IIC, Hated RIfleman with a passion, and if it didn't have PPCs I wasn't driving. So yeah, Broadsides rock. Anyways, I like Fire Warriors. And I hate how Kroot go balls-up as soon as something scary comes their way. balls-up. Yes, that is a thing, and its terrible. Its up there with Dane Cook kind of unpleasant experience. If you like him, you shouldn't, he's not funny. So there. Anyways, I like Fire Warriors, and I hate... we did this. we'll skip foward. I decided to try to fit two squads of them in Devilfish in, for scoring purposes. In an 1850 list, I dropped some hounds and a crisis suit, and something else I don't remember. At 2k, some other stuff. So, on to the games:
Game 3: This game went back and forth. Dawn of War versus Black Templar. Man, that Marshall can soak some firepower. It took me 3 turns to drop him and his honor guard. I've never seen a squad pass so many saves, and we're talking railgun, railgun, plasma, missile, kroot gun, kitchen sink, you name it. At the very end, I lost due to being unable to score a wound on the bottom Initiate squad, and being unable to kill the rhino that blasted through dangerous terrain to contest my objective. First two turns, I def had it. Then... a multi-assault that killed a FW squad, Kroot Squad and Dfish happened. After that it seesawed with turns 5 and 6 resulting in not a single death on his side of the board. But it was fun, glad I got to play.
So there you go. The morale of this story is: don't let terminators get in your lines. They're beastly. But when a Kroot Hound takes one down its hillarious. So yeah. Lovin Tau, Lovin Life. Until next time!
Say some things... you know you've only got one
