After the late night on Friday at The Warstore Weekend playing in the 35 point Steamroller, I was pretty pumped up about playing Retribution. My original plan was to play in Saturday evening’s Hardcore tournament with my Cryx(who are fully painted) but 2 things changed my mind. First, I was having a blast playing Retribution, especially Kaelyssa. […]
So I’m heading to the Warstore Weekend tomorrow. Tomorrow is the 35 point Steamroller which I’ve already posted list plans for. But today I want to talk about the 35 point Hardcore tournament on Saturday. I’ve never done a Hardcore event before, so it should be quite the experience
I’ve purchased my ticket for The Warstore Weekend which takes place on Oct 26-28 right in my back yard. I signed up for all of the tournaments and I’ll plan lists for all of them, but I’m a wuss, so we’ll see how many I actually get through.

I am currently using an 8 man unit of Bane Knights in my Cryx army and when it came time to paint them, I decided that the Army of the Dead paint style from Games Workshop’s Lord of the Rings seemed to fit with their Ghostly nature and the green Cryx furnaces on the ‘jacks. […]
So I’ve started painting my Bane Knights. I did a test model to try out the concept. I took a page from Games Workshop’s Lord of the Rings Army of the Dead with the glowing green look, but not for the whole model. I painted their ‘cloth’ with the glowing green look, being brighter higher […]
