He is getting the Blood Bowl team from me,

You MONSTER.

This is the letter I wrote for the kid to be handed to him after the game:

Quote
Cole,

By now you’re aware that Ryan told the store community that today was your birthday.  Well... the party anyways.  I had planned to come down and be the person to run you through a game of Blood Bowl and get you addicted to yet another fantastic GW game, but circumstances prevented me from making it.

He also told me you were in air cadets, and I believe I was in the store when you came in during Tag Days (tsk tsk tsk lol).  As someone that has been through the cadet organization when I was younger, and who has come back as an instructor,  I think it is great that you are participating in such a great program.   My understanding is that you were a LAC this year, which means it won’t be long before you reach Sergeant.  Whatever you do, stick with cadets and see it through to the end.  The skills you learn there will stay with you your entire life.

Anyways, I wanted to say happy birthday, and I hope you enjoyed the game of Blood Bowl against Ryan.   I know starting a new game like that while also feeding your Warhammer addiction is tough, so if you really enjoyed the game and want to keep playing it you can.  The human team that you played used to be mine and I lent it to the store for Ryan to have on hand for people to use.  Keep it!  The team is yours!  Repaint it however you like and I hope to see you out playing with them again soon.

Think of it as a blessing from the Dark Gods,  Nuffle (the fickle Blood Bowl god), the Emperor, or Sigmar.   Which ever you prefer, lol.

Happy Birthday, again, and I hope you had fun today.

What's that cloying taste in my mouth? I think it's excessive sweetness. I swear, I'd pinch your cheeks, if I could.

Face cheeks, to be specific. No harassment of any kind intended. I don't need another incident.

well part of my job as an instructor with cadets is to encourage the kids and be a leader for them.  We can't all be crotchety old men.

Well, you can.  I have to inspire and motivate.  Two ideals that don't go well with grumpy and crotchety.

Crotchety is highly motivating for people wanting to be somewhere else.

See, inspiration and motivation just pouring out everywhere. Embrace the crotchety to a better future for those who don't deserve it as they're young.

Are funny things cool, too?  The Auralnauts edits of Star Wars are my new favorite comedy bit:

(Some naughty words and references to cocaine, mind)
STAR WARS EP 1: Jedi Party - YouTube

Seen here: Jedi are known throughout the galaxy as being lords of the dance!

"What are medichlorians?"
"It's heroin."

They include bits from every movie over the course of four videos, scuttlebutt is that The Force Awakens is next.

A Howling Banshees cosplay:

That must have taken her an incredible amount of time to make.  The results are really impressive.

@Irisado- Yeah that cosplay is wicked cool. I saw the Cosplay photoshoot on FB as well it was really cool. I really like the DoW Eldar aesthetic. It reminds of the Eldar Rogue Trader art where there is almost a "Space Jokey" aesthetic from Alien to it. Really wish they'd put a little more of the creepy back into the Eldar designs from time to time. I wouldn't go completley in that direction but a nice nod to that every once and awhile would be cool.

@Everybody- If you guys haven't checked out Tale of Painters you really should. Its an incredible website run by a group of top-notch hobbyists. This blew my mind this morning... this is almost exactly how I'd paint my Craftworld Eldar.



Tale of Painters

Whenever I'm watching a baseball game I hop over there and search through the tags during commercial. That and the GW Flickr which is insane.

Thought you guys might be interested to see what I am playing at my local GW.  These series of quotes were taking from the Facebook group associated with the store, but we are just in the process of planning it right now.  I have even brought up the idea with the manager about possibly looking into getting some GW support, maybe even some White Dwarf coverage.

Anyways, to the epic madness!

Quote from: GML's Facebook post #1
I'm curious how many legions are represented at the store. Whether they are loyalist or traitor, 30k or 40k. I'd actually like to compile a list and if we have a broad enough representation, maybe we can organize an epic traitor v loyalist throw down.
(just looking for the original legions, not successor chapters)

Loyalists
---------------
- Dark Angels
- Space Wolves
- Blood angels
- Ultramarines
- Iron Hands
- Imperial Fists
- White Scars
- Salamanders
- Raven Guard

Traitors
-------------
- Death Guard
- Iron Warriors
- Night Lord
- World Eaters
- Sons of Horus / Black Legion
- Word Bearers
- Alpha Legion
- Thousand Sons
- Emperors Children

So... yeah... lots of heretics in this community.
Quote from: GML's Facebook post #2
As per my last post, we were able to find enough people to say that we are able to get all of the founding legions represented at the store.

The next step is to find out what the point spread is between them. So, because the other post has had quite a large and confusing comment history, I'm going to tally total points here. Leave a comment with the Legion you have and roughly how many points you can field. I will update the tallies as the answers come in

Loyalists -> 73,190
---------------
- Dark Angels -> 28,400pts - 5
- Space Wolves -> 11,350pts - 5
- Blood angels -> 11,000pts - 2
- Ultramarines -> 4400pts - 2
- Iron Hands -> 3540pts -2
- Imperial Fists -> 4000pts - 2
- White Scars -> 2000pts - 1
- Salamanders -> 3500pts - 1
- Raven Guard -> 5000pts - 1
- 21 players

Traitors - 29,150
-------------
- Death Guard -> 6500pts - 4
- Iron Warriors -> XXXXXXX has Infinite!
- Night Lord -> 3800pts - 2
- World Eaters -> 3850pts - 3
- Sons of Horus -> 2000pts - 1
- Word Bearers -> 4000pts+ - 2
- Alpha Legion -> 2500pts - 1
- Thousand Sons -> 1000pts - 1
- Emperors Children -> 5500pts - 2
- 16 players
Quote from: GML's Facebook post #3
So it is safe to say that we can definitely pull off this mega battle. That has been clearly demonstrated. The next step we need to take in planning this day / weekend of pure awesomeness is to work out who will be playing what legions.

We can work out how many points per side later, but for now I just need people to sign up for which legion they wish to play. Please remember that you are selecting only one legion and every legion must be represented by at least one person.

Players that only have a single Legion will have priority for playing that Legion. If this applies to you, please indicate so that I am able to keep track of that.
