Quiet on the Hobby Front

Not much blog worthy has been going on the last 2 weeks so I've been remarkably silent. I keep dragging out potential projects, working on them for a few minutes, and then getting distracted by something that's not hobby related. I have been following the 5th Edition reports feverishly on BoLS and Warseer but that's about it.
Two Monday's ago I pulled out my Orks and administered a sound beating. I've been playing a mostly foot slogging force with 2 Warpheads and I love the way it plays. Its a little unpredictable but it works really well with my play style I think. It also makes me think I'd really like to switch my DA army to a Multiwing format. I really want to try the Ravenwing/Deathwing combo.

Anyway, last night I tried an experimental DA tournament list that isn't Multiwing against Eric's completely vehicle-less Blood Angels force. I played a strong game despite some terrible dangerous terrain rolls for my vehicles (I had my Landraider and a Vindicator both roll Immobilized results in the same turn!). It clearly wasn't strong enough as the Blood Angels won by 600+ points.

Here are some photos from that game. The first one is my favorite. It screams photoshop me with some sort of cool background and some drifting smoke. I'm definitely going to try and get more dramatic pics like that in the future.
These two Highland Lion's (Blood Angels) more than earned their points, popping the Dreadnought and then dragging down several marines from that Rhino in the distance down with them.

I think the pending edition has alot of us looking at what we are going to do with our armies.

Nice pics there from the battle there, I uspect any all infantry Marine list could be tough to face off against, there's the potential for alot of boots on the ground there.

70 of em to be exact... 4 of the ten man squads are broken up into combat squads too. while that definitely makes them not as strong, bringing 11 total scoring units below 1/2 strength in less then 6 turns is tough (which is why i am giving the all infantry marines a go!)

11 scoring units would be all but imposible for me to knock off in six turns.

It's only a matter of time before I face off against one.
