Ogres Update and Practice Games
Well its the Middle of march. I have been up to some things these past 2 weeks and steadily playtesting team tournament games. I finished painting and molding the last part of my cobblestone 40mm bases so that all of my units have matching scenic bases. This brings the army a little further out asthetically and brightens up the bases. Secondly, I purchased some new space wolfs: wolf packs in their new box of 5 - 1 week ago. My goal with them is to have them for sabretusks. They are big enough and look better than chaos warhounds from 6th edition. My new side project(because we all have one) is going to be Dwarfs. However, I am trying to go for a marauder style army from late 88'-93'. The biggest challenge I am faced with is acquiring models. I need good trades or sales and all of these figs are OOP. So the challenge will begin. The concept will be a special deployment army(well we'll see how far it goes before I cave and make a min/maxed list :). I have had a couple games recently. After the CCGS tournament and running 1-2 I played Stevo in Blood and Glory and took a win versus his Empire. I also played another local Brando against an experimental VC list that was very fast and another win there in Dawn Attack. Another game I played was a battleline team game versus Brando and Aarono which was another win for Steve and I(I think this one may have been before CCGS's tourny). And Just last night played Aarono's Lizards and got a lucky win - BR to follow. So a Lucky streak but we'll see if it pans through.
