Sorry for the absence...

I know I've been away for a minute but well, got back from vacation as I said earlier posting. However a day after I got back I got seriously seriously ill, (ear infection and sinus infection ill.) was down for a few days and didn't really accomplish anything 40k wise or anything else wise. I was gonna play a game or two with Lach but that didn't happen either. I finally got up and around again a few days ago, and played a game with my 2000 point list. This is the list I will hopefully be using for the exterminatus. Which means I have some painting work to do and quickly. The game as Lach wrote ended in a tie but I think the army did pretty well for itself. So I was gonna throw it out and see if you out there would throw me a pointer or two.
My original list was 5 term squads and 2 LR's one normal and one crusader. I scrapped that and went with another idea that gave me more options and some movers. Here's the new list.

__1-Belial w/lightning claws
Int. Chaplain (standard)
Standard bearer
Sgt w/power weapon and storm bolter
2x terminators with lightning claws
__2-Terminator squad__
Sgt Power weapon and storm bolter
4 terminators one w/assault cannon. 1/chain fist
__3-Terminator squad __
Sgt Power weapon and storm bolter
4 Terminators one w/chain fist
__4-5 Man troop squad__
Sgt with plasma pistol and power weapon
4 Standard marines one w/melta gun
Razorback w/hvy bolter
__5-10 man devastator__
2 lascannons and 2 plasma cannons
6 standard marines
(split into combat squads)
__6- 10 man assault squad __
Sgt with power weapon and plasma pistol
2 marines with plasma pistol
7 assault marines pistol and chain sword
__7-6 Bikes__
Sgt with power weapon and plasma pistol
2 melta guns
3 reg bikers

That's my list at 2000 points The terminators move forward or deep strike the razorback team stays inside and moves to objectives and uses the razor as cover. The bikers stay back and zoom up to (fritz, LoL) grab objectives in the last minutes. The assault marines zoom around getting into c/c or sacrifice to stop fast movers. The dev team splits into 5/5 one las and plas in each and stand back and shoots down cover fire and takes out tanks (hopefully, as the las cannons in the last game missed every time.)
So what do you think. I have everything except 2 term squads 5 bikes and the razorback finished. I should be able to accomplish that by the 14th. I was debating dropping the razorback team for a Ven. dread. or maybe working them to try and fit in a speeder but I would have to paint that up too. Any advice is great I know it's short notice and all, and well this will be my first big tourny that wasn't run at a local store with people I knew. I kinda wanna do semi good or at least just not get my ass handed to me every round.
Oh I also gotta get my display board done. Which I bought a 11x7 picture frame I'm gonna pull the glass form and do a quick board.

Thanks ahead of time,

Back to the real world

Well the vacation is over. I wish it wasn't I love the house of the mouse so much, we had so much fun, minus the one night of extreme intoxication where...well let's just say I don't remember a whole lot of it. Coming back to the real world sucked but it had to be done. I logged on yesterday to check the sites and what can I say...I missed a lot. So I was trying to back log and was gonna post comments and all like usual but there is just to much. SO..........EVERYONE DID GREAT..WOW GREAT LOOKING MODELS..SUPER WORK..GREAT JOB..KEEP IT UP...AWESOME STORY..CONGRATS ON THE WIN...THAT LOOKS LIKE A GREAT LIST..AWESOME BIKE RON...DOGS IN THE IMP. GUARD WOW...COOL STORIES...SWEET BATTLE REPORT...JAWABALLS!!!!! WOW nuff said....AWESOME BELIAL....SWEET APOTHECARY TERMINATOR....and lastly (if i missed a kudo shout out, I apologize, there are so many, 11 days puts you way behind.) LACH, I HAVE A FEELING I AM IN TROUBLE, CONGRATS ON THE ANNIVERSARY AND IT LOOKS LIKE YOU GOT SOME SWEET LOOT, HOPEFULLY BRIT DIDN'T JUST GET SOME PJ'S (lol).
with all that out of the way, I heard from Ron my prize form the basing contest is coming soon. I got my dice WOOT awesome. I think I may try and get a hold of chessex and get some in black and green for my DA. I also got two awesome silver dice from the misses. I will be starting my terminators and the land raiders ASAP since March is only 2 weeks away. I also finally got my order in from Cali. and am now working on a list for my new army. I will be making a list then building this time. But the new army will be my NID army, Tooth and Claw. Expect some posts about a possible army list soon. Plus I should have some more terminator pics. and stuff up in the next week or so. That's about it as of right now. I'll be individually posting again on all your posts starting again tomorrow or the day after most likely.
One last note. I finished The Killing Ground, the 4th part of the Ultramarines story. It was a pretty good read Dead Sky, Black Sun was better but Killing Ground wrapped it up nicely. I also finished book 1 of 2 of the Deathwatch series by C.S. Goto, Warror Brood was a good read and ended nicely, but left me wondering what just happened to a lot of characters. So I started part 2 Warrior Coven and it hasn't explained anything or picked up with any of where we left off. So I am currently disappointed with it but I will keep reading and hopefully get some clarification about what happened between the 2 books.

Quick note

Well, just a quick update no pics or anything. I wont be posting for a week well about 11 days. Unless I can find a internet connection. And even then I may not. However never fear. I'm not leaving the game or anything. I'm just taking the misses and were heading off on a long needed vacation. So if you don't see a comment or anything from me for a few don't worry.."I'll be back." See you all in a few. Oh and when I do get back expect alot of work form me. Since I have to get the wing ready for the tourny in March.
