Particularly keen-eyed readers may have seen my occasional shoutouts to the Something Awful forums, or SA forum members. The SA forums are an interesting place to say the least, but their 40k and other gaming-related threads are some of the best resources on the net.
One of the long-running traditions there (going into year three, wow!) is the yearly painting oath thread. This year's thread is bigger and badder than ever!

On Saturday I played in Dark Future Games Adepticon Primer tournament held at Game Links in Fowlerville. OST did a great job running the tournament at Game Links which is in a great location for many players in the area. I was amazed that there were no Grey Knights at all (yay!). I think the tally was three Blood Angels, three Necrons, one Dark Angel, one Black Templar, one Ork, and one Chaos Daemon player. The Chaos Daemon player won the day.

|Burn, baby burn.|
I stayed up too late last night finishing my Salamanders Contemptor. This makes for painted dreadnought number eight. I...I think I may have a problem...

Upon arriving at a wonderful and exciting business conference in Seattle, I began searching for an LGS to satisfy my tabletop gaming nerdery. Lo and Behold... the state of Washington has a GW Battle Bunker!

Greetings readers from half-way around the world.
It has been a long time since I've wrote an article for Fresh Coast 40k. There is good reason for this as I find myself deployed to Afghanistan. I don't find a lot of free time here from my duties but when I do I try to paint my 40k Models.
It has taken quite a few months but I finished my Blood Angels Honor Squad. When I conceived the idea for my Honor Squad, it was out of fun. I cannot imagine using these guys in a competitive list, but they sure look fun to play with. I hope you agree with me.

|I guess I like dreadnoughts?!?|
Finishing out Week 1 of Contemptor Month, I share some of my thoughts about contemptors in general, and sweet inspiration pics. Details after the jump.
Michigan’s largest export in 2012? Engineers! I packed up my miniatures and moved to a new job designing hybrid vehicles In Utah. Since getting settled in I’ve begun exploring to find a new local game shop (LGS) for playing Warhammer, Warhammer 40k and Warmachine.

|Bray Shaman Abramio called his herd forward|
As stated in the previous blog article, Tau4Eva and I attended the Warhammer Fantasy tournament at Gamers Sanctuary yesterday. I used the list I posted on Friday which included the Herdstone. I was a little scared to use it because I wasn't sure I would use it correctly. I also included the Jagged Dagger, which allows me to grab power dice for each model my Great Bray kills in close combat. He cut down a ton of dudes... my magic phases were well powered.
Mike and I attended the WHFB Adepticon primer tournament at GS this past weekend. There were a total of twelve players including a few that are planning to play in Chicago for the upcoming fantasy tournament at Adepticon - sounds like a lot of fun. I would love to make the trip next year. Hopefully by then I will meet the fully painted army requirement. Saturday's tournament used scenarios from the 2011 tournament with a 2200 point army limit. Here's the Dark Elf list I brought:

After a break last week, Steampunk Saturday is back with one of my favorite sculpts in the entire Privateer Press range: the Earthborn Dire Troll!
