Yeah, Kelly and I will be up there Friday night if anyone else will be around.

Kelly's list is pretty savage. I think he is going to bring the pain on some folks.

Bring the pain? With my dice????
Come on Reece, I'm the guy that rolled 5 1s on 6 Terminator saves (the 2+ variety). Squad dead...thanks dice.
Wednesday night I spent the first 4 turns getting nothing better than a Pen-2 on Chaos possessed Rhinos (ignores shaken/stunned, thank you very much).
Nope, with my dice the only pain will be the accidental head wound from whoever is where my thrown dice land.

Well I am out the door and on the way to the venue. Tables should be ready for open gaming by around 1 or 2 at the latest. If anyone wants to beat up on the ringer I can bend over and grab ankles for them, or I could plop down my mech guard for a run instead. Look forward to seeing all the Dakkites.

After playing Kelly's list last Saturday at the tournament at Game Empire, I can easily say that Kelly's list does indeed bring the pain to a lot of people that won't know how to deal with it.

I would not be surprised to hear if Kelly and/or Reece make it to one of the top tables.

Good luck guys!

@Monster Rain
Kelly brings Captain Haus, aka Lysander in a nice Vanilla List.

Thanks Patrick! The wolves are coming with the thunder form down under! I have been on a painting marathon and everything is up to tournament standard. Not quite DONE, but all three colors fully based with at least some highlighting and low lighting.

Looking forward to seeing the gang!

What army were you playing?

I'm super bummed I had to miss the second day, my kids had something come up that had to be dealt with late into last night and most of today...

If not I bet I'll bump into you at Game Empire. Had a lovely game with Yakface in round two though!

Congrats to Gothgar for taking best overall and to Reece for best general (These were the two Golden ticket winners here). I tried my best to beat Gothgar at the top table in the last round but it was a great game and he was fun to play (two ork armys fighting it out for the top spot = Orks don't suck!). Knocked me down to third but only 5 to 7 point spread between the top spots aint that bad and I did way better than I thought I would. It was really nice to meet all the dakkites out there also.

@Darrian13
Woah! What's up Darrian! How have you been, man? You playing 40K again? It'd be good to see you at a tournament!

@Grimgob
Thanks bro! I thought you were going to win it but you just barely lost best general by one kill point! Nice game. Good to see you again. I missed best overall by 2 points! But who cares, I got my ticket and I am a happy man.

@Monster Rain
Dude, I just realized who you were! Haha, I read your battle report and recognized your army. Sorry man, I didn't realize you and I game together at GE.

@Kelly
You kicked ass for your first GT. Get another 10 points on painting and you'll be in the top 1/3 of the field next time, easy.

Oh yeah, I posted a battle report if anyone is curious to read it.

I've only been to GE once, so no worries. Just moved to the area...

I plan to be hitting that store up pretty regularly now though, since it's like 2 exits up from my school. We'll see you around!

Darrian13 has been selected to be a Space Marine based on his supreme genetics. He has no time for games of 40k since he will soon be living the dream.

Who were the biggest cheaters at this event and why?

Thanks man, awesome game, one of the best I have had in a while.

Congrats to the other winners as well.

And for those of you who wanted a piece, I plan on making more GT's in the future, so I can show you how much orks suck

Obviously, we didn't have any competitive players there.
Battle points worked out thusly: Orks, Space Wolves, Tyranids & Tyranids (tied for third), Orks.

I was the real winner.
Got to play Keith, Brad, Q, and Jeff; all pretty much top rank players. May have gotten my butt kicked, but the education and tactics picked up were priceless.
Not to mention the lousy Sushi and being in tears over the 'Space Pope' Tau jokes...and that every game I played was fun without drama.
Thanks all and hope to do better at the Broadside Bash.

Hey - would you wonderful green beaters of face be willing to PM or post your ork lists? I play with Kelly, Pat and the others down at the Empire regularly and am always looking to improve my green game!

Congrats to the winners, way to represent for the SD crew Reece!

"When someone has a crap list, I make a short post, usually along the lines of, "I'm not sure you understand how to play Orks," kind of like the one you got. Your list and expressed tactics for using it are fundamentally flawed. I can help someone tweak their engine to make it run more smoothly and get better performance and am glad to do so...

But your army list is like a car with square wheels, you've put sugar into the gas-tank, put in a $600 stereo with no locks on the door, and pimped it with 22" rims on one side, donuts on the other, and put hydraulics on the donuts to try balancing things out. I can't fix crap like that, I can only point out what a terrible car it is and how you need to go back to the drawing board."

After this post by Dash of Pepper said this about my Ork list and now that his list looks similer to mine, I do not post my army list anymore. Thank the Ork master of Dakka Dakka.

and if it were not for my bad addition skills at the end with kill points I would have taken best overall (best paint score I ever got, I'm so proud!)

I'm definitely bringing Space Pope to the next tournament, just to show you naysayers what a Horde of Furious Charging, Preferred Enemy crisis suits and fire warriors can do. (answer: not much)

Plus, my Tau couldn't have done much worse anyway, so why not.

Space Pope!!

God that was funny at dinner!

Bring Farsight and Space Pope on his rascal scooter and take the fight to the enemy! Just don't get distracted by an early bird breakfast special or church bingo night on the way.

@Karate_Bum
Thanks! So far Dave and I both have tickets. Hopefully some more of the gang gets a ticket in time. Shane and Geoff at the store are good sources of info for competitive Orks as are Russ and Josh.

@dkeelyj
Yeah, you played some of the best guys there, no doubt. Next time out you'll bring some pain for sure.

Getting my broom incase there is shenanigans.

Do you want an example of just how tired I was Sunday?

In game #5 I miscounted my kill points, and I should have won the primary instead of losing.
