Here's a small update to fill you all in on what's going on here.
The Good: I'm working on building, painting, and practicing with my ATC (American Team Championship) list. I'm going with DaBoyz (our local game club), which is really cool because these guys are true veterans of 40k. At 31, I'm the youngest on the team and with only 1 army, I have the smallest collection. They're all amazing painters and great generals on the table. Our team consists of Shaun Kemp (ETC Nid player for America 2010), Jay Woodcock (DaBoyz GT TO), Chris "One of Everything" Courtney, and Joe "Fishboy" Johnson (who also wins best painted just about everywhere he goes). I've already had my butt handed to me twice practicing our lists and the special format. It's a real treat getting to play the best guys in our area.
The Bad: I'm taking pictures and notes for batreps, but due to the format that allows teams to choose the match-ups for ATC, I will not be posting them until after the event. Gotta keep our lists and strategies classified for now! I can tell you I'm bringing my tyranids (duh!) and I've been playtesting a unit or two that I've never used. I hope I can make it work and give you all some quality content after the event. So no batreps for a bit, but a lot to come later. In the meantime, I'll fill in with hobby content and hopefully some guest batreps.
The Ugly (My Face): I've been contacted by the 11th Company (http://www.tangtwo.com/11thcompany/) to do an interview about myself, the blog, and my army. I'm still working on a date so I'll let you know when it's done and available. For those who don't know me, I make chocolate for a living and Easter is kicking my butt right now. Being a newlywed also, having 3 dogs, and 2 saltwater aquariums actually leaves me with very little free time. Anyways, stay tuned and hopefully I'll have some good stuff coming up!
