|Au revoir MP85.|
I wanted to start this post with hobby news, but that just isn't working. Today I blog with a heavy heart because a tiny ball of French-Canadian exuberance is moving from swampy DC to sunny CA. Sports games are also numbers games sometimes, and the crunch is rarely harsher than when the season is about to begin. I could go on for quite a while, but ultimately this is a hobby blog and I probably shouldn't indulge in hockey talk when I haven't had hobby talk in quite a while. I has a hockey sad, but the show must go on.
There's less smoke but more fire on the Warmahordes front. After girding my loins for competitive Khador play previously, I got to thinking about the best way to help my fellow gamers prepare for tournament play. The Motherland hasn't had the best showing on the big stages over the past year or two for whatever reason. One possible reason: Legion takes all their places. It turns out I have a bag full of Legion, stocked with the vast majority of what the Internet tells me are the best choices. [The only big hole I have are Raptors which I can probably borrow from a local (or build my Uhlans and use them as proxies)]. With this in mind I started assembling eVayl and the non-Shredder lessers so I could run the now-standard tier 4 list. My first time out with it didn't go so well, but I did learn the pMadrak can be tough to kill. I learned a lot from the game, which felt like it hadn't happened in forever, and I have some ideas for next time. Once I get the Knights together I'll be looking to the lingering Gatormen and Hex Hunters, plus digging around while hoping that I have another Legion heavy kit hiding somewhere.
