Mohammer in Movember!

On Saturday, November 30th I will be hosting a charitable event at Maxx Collectibles to raise money for Movember.  Movember is a foundation that funds the fight against prostate cancer, and to get guys like us to take better care of ourselves.

The event will be a small gladiator style battle with armies of 333 points and there is no minimum FOC requirement.  That means you do not have to have the required 1HQ and 2 Troops you normally have to take.
Games will be played on a 2’x 4’ table and will go for 7 full rounds, or until a side is wiped out.

There will be a donation of at least $5.00 required to enter the even, which can be made to me at the event, or you can make your donation to Team Mohammer on the Movember website.  This donation will also earn you a number of raffle tickets equal to your donation up to 10 tickets.
You will be able to buy more tickets in between games at $1.00 each, and you can use your tickets to buy in game power ups or re-rolls.  There will be a full list of power ups and bonuses supplied to you at the event.  (hint:  bring additional models with various upgrades)

You will also win raffle tickets by winning your games.  Winning a game will earn you 2 tickets and a drawn game will earn you 1.

The raffle tickets will also be used, at the end of the event, to draw for prizes.  All of the tickets will be placed in a bucket at then drawn one at a time, the winners coming up and choosing prizes, until all the prizes are gone.

If you are unable to attend the event, you can still win by making donations.  If you donate to Team Mohammer as mentioned above, I will set aside a number of tickets with your name on them.  I will choose the prize should you win and I will contact you letting you know what you won and how to claim your prize.

The first game will start at 12:30 and there will be 4 games played.  Each game will have 1 hour to be played.  Prizes will be drawn after the last game finishes and the players collect their tickets.

As an additional bonus, if you are participating in Movember and show up to the event with a moustache, you will earn a Master Crafted Die.  This die will be able to be re-rolled for any roll it is used to make.  It can be thrown into a handful of bolter rounds, or can be used to re-roll a leadership check, but it can only be used once per phase.

Happy Gaming and looking forward to seeing you there!

Nerd shirts and fat update

I just ordered a few funny nerd shirts from a pretty cool website. Redbubble has tons of shit you can order, much of it being nerd shit. Some of it is even funny nerd shit. I happened to order these two gems. Just got 'em last week. Very reasonable price too. Check em out here

for my love of beer

for my love of Angry Marines

So, I'm 10 days into NOvember, and let me tell you, its been super sucky. Not only have I given up booze and junk food, but Cody has sent me a healthy eating guide that he does for all his crazy ass cross fit stuff. So I've also cut out grains, dairy, flours and sugars. Bread, pasta and cheese are my favourite things in the world. I'm not having any troubs with no booze... but I'd kill someone for a hunk of cheese right now.
Also, the planking sucks.. I've been doing it, but it sucks.
I've dropped a few pounds tho, so yay?

Plank Challenge, I'm gonna make you my bitch. I'm gonna take you out for a nice dinner, then fuck you and never call you back!

Disco Elves Strike Back!

Dave and JP!  (disco elves)


Wes and Rob! (BFF's!)

Start of the game, we shake, wish good luck and praise the wonderfullness that is the beer league!

Now seeing that Eldar have a new codex, and being the dick I am, i deploy my super duper surprise! A sky shield landing pad!  4+ invul on like 18 Lootas! WHOOAHAHHAHA!

Everyone reacts to my new skyshield landing pad

Pics of our deployment, I love the ork clown car!

Now enter Jp and his wonderful mission design.  There are these things called meteor storms at the end of every sub turn.  Apparently neither of the Ork players read the fine print on JP's rules.  ALL meteors must land on top of Orks every single sub turn.  At least that is what happened the for the first 6 meteor's.

  I look at JP and after the first meteor lands on top of all our artillery causing it run off the board and taking a hull point off the a battle wagon....."JP" I say, "WTF kind of mission is this?"  

JP responds to my question

The Elves start shooting, and OMG the horror!  Orks and dying left right and center.  Still its better then all these freaking Meteors hitting us.  Next sub turn another lands on us killing 8 more Orks.  

I can tell now that Dave is having a good time:

Now both battle wagons are dead, and now we have 60 Orks stuck in terrain and trying to move across the board to the Elves while getting shit pumped by Meteors every sub turn.  However all is not bad.  Dave's Disco Chickens land right beside my Lootas.  For some reason they get deep strike throw a large str 8 template that auto hits, and ignores cover and THEN get to shoot, cause u know, why not?  

  Dave is excited!  But wait, sky shield landing pad to the rescue!  I gotz a 4+ invul save!  So i only loose two lootas!  HAHAH, mini-moral victory!  Take that Dave!

  Orks actually having a decent save react!  

Lootas getting a invul save, they happy!

Dakka jets come on!  and some kind of Eldar plane that really flyes around and then gets shot down. 

So by now, things aren't looking very good, there is no way we can get across the table against all that Eldar shooting, and well my Orks have devolved into simple Beer Keg (we used these to show the resource points dropped by the meteor's) collecting mobs.  To show how many meteor's hit our side of the table my Orks managed to collect almost 30 resource points despite never leaving our deployment zone!  

  Our dakka jets are the only thing that really did anything for us, the Lootas, all they really did was survive.  

  You know your in a bad spot when both JP and Dave start looking at their codex rules and then give you these types of looks! Physic powes! Deep strike! Invul saves! Invisable! Ignore Cover! Auto hit!Auto win!

So us Orks got pantz'd bad.  We brought a knife to a gun fight.  

My hate for the Eldar continues to grow! Stupid disco elves win this time!  But Orks will be back!  

Rob writing battle report:

Great game guys!

NOvember is the new Movember

Like Jordan said in his previous post, nerds are not always in the greatest of health.
I've noticed lately that I'm on the road to becoming a fat(er) fuck. I'm starting to get boobs, I have no energy and I'm lazy as hell. I don't want to do anything, not even nerd stuff. You may have noticed my lack of posts on the website lately.
Well, starting today, November is now going to be my NOvember

NO booze
NO junk food
NO lazying and loafing
NO nerd spending

The aim is to get me a bit healthier and in a bit more shape. Both in body and in bank book.

Here is my promise:

Promise 1: Me and this super hot chick will do the plank challenge every day

Promise 2: 3 times a week I will go jogging. Minimum 1 mile

Promise 3: Gym 2 times per week
 My weight as of today, November 1 at 6:35pm is 217 lbs (ish. My scale is a $10 piece of crap)
I'm not setting a weight goal. The goal is to be less than 217 by Dec 1st. My goal is to feel better. My goal is to have more energy and motivation.

My goal is to be like a Space Marine! Mreeeeeh!
 Also, I'll be participating in Movember. But just like I wont ever start a new 40k army from scratch, I'm not gonna start my Mo from scratch either. Tomorrow I'll be shaving my goat into what will probably look like a pedo moustache. I'd shave the goat tonight, but I need it for my Walter White Halloween costume.

Jesse! We need to cook! Right after this selfy!

Battle Report: Jordan & Sean VS Greg & Thurston

            Armenneus Valthex felt more than heard the movement of the stones.  He knew these ruins with an intimate familiarity after having spent hours bolstering them.  He slid his Indynabula array from it’s place at his side and initiated it’s power field.
            Valthex turned sure to see an enemy although how they got past the Salamanders, who had secured the perimeter, he was unsure.  To his disbelief he saw nothing, until the air moved.  Immediately he began swinging the powered coils in wide sweeping arcs.
            “Show yourself you coward!  Hiding in the mists of the warp to hide your fear?  Face me and meet your doom!”
            “It is your doom I seek Armenneus.” The strong, calm voice was so close to his ear he thought he felt the hot breath that gave the words life.  It sent icy chills down his spine.

            Before Armenneus could turn, a series of blows rained down on his back and head, each one, jarring him viciously but his armour protected him.  He regained his balance and responded with a series of strikes that found nothing but air.
            Again blows slammed into him, but his armour held firm.  “You can not keep this up Armenneus.  I will find a chink in that armour of yours and it will be the end of you.”
            “How do you know my name?” Armenneus asked as he swung the coils of the array.  “And my armour is absolute.”  If he could get his assailant to speak, he would have a better idea where he was.
            The laughter that echoed off the walls of the ruined building was sure and full of contempt.  It pounded in his head and set his teeth on edge.  “It is not the armour that protects your body that I mean Armenneus, and it is FAR from absolute.  As for your name, I have spies everywhere and they feed me information.  There is little I don’t know about you Armenneus”
            That was enough, Armenneus had pinpointed where the voice was coming from and he sprung, full of rage he swung the coils of the array with lightning speed striking his foe across the chest and shoulder, who suddenly became visible, as did the others.
            In deep red armour stood the enemy, armour rent and melted, laughing softly, a traitor marine from and unknown origin as there was no livery other than the symbols of chaos.
            As the others advanced on Armenneus he heard the voice, still strong despite the wounds sustained, “Don’t kill him, Lufgt will need him.”
            “Yes, Your Honour.” Replied many voices in unison.

That there is the flavor text for this month’s battle report which was of Sean R and I teaming up to face off against Greg and Thruston.  A nice little combat happened between my warlord and his and it lent itself to move along some story and fluff and blah blah blah…
Now, onto the report.

On the car ride up, Sean and I talked tactics for a short while and I had decided that I was going to buy the Firestorm Defense upgrade then using my warlord trait, which allows me to infiltrate D3 infantry units, deploy as close to their lines as I can in the centre of the table.  So we deployed our forces in the centre of the table extending off to our left a little, leaving room for me to deploy my infiltrators.
Then Turston deployed his warlord way off in a corner with not that much around him, all vulnerable like and I jumped on the opportunity.  I knew that with Invisibility and a 4+ invul, plus the re-roll that the rest of my squad would give me, my warlord could kill his.  I only had an AP 3 weapon, and he has a 2+ save, but he only had to fail once because I have a force weapon.  So I deployed my warlord, a 10 man marine squad, and my 2 oblits, almost my entire army, far to our right side effectively splitting our force in 2 and making the 5RP I spent next to worthless.

First turn sees my marines rushing out in the rhino with the Chosen and Warlord not far behind but getting out of their ride ready to assault next turn.  Sean moves some things up and lets loose with his Vindicator which kills a couple.  Some other shooting sees some other marines die but there is nothing spectacular.
The other guys respond by dropping in 2 ironclads, 1 right in front of my chosen, the other right in front of Sean’s large mob of cultists which it flamed with it’s 2 twin-linked heavy flamers.  Thank the 4 gods there were only 9 in range otherwise 5 more would have died.

Now because of the sneaky way that Greg deployed his drop pod and dreadnought, Sean cant move his vindicator, so it gets a bad shot

I shoot up the dreadnaught and immobilize it and wreck an arm.  In the assault phase I successfully charge that coward Valthex and this is the result…

He is still standing.  Ok, no worries. He did nothing to me and I got next round to kill him.  In fact, I’d rather kill him in their turn anyway, I won’t get shot this turn.  YAY!

Greg charged his dreadnought into a unit of Sean’s marines, who gun the behemoth down in overwatch.

It's only his thumb you perverts!
The rest of the game is pretty average.  Stuff moves, then it shoots, and stuff dies.  One highlight is when I tank shocked 3 of Thursty’s units, twice.  He passed all his Tank Shock tests, but failed a death or glory with a lascannon.  I was hoping to get one unit at least because I knew I was sacrificing those rhinos.
There is one thing that happens for the rest of the game and doesn’t get resolved until the last turn of the game.

Thurston’s fucking warlord WILL NOT DIE, and he doesn’t even have It Will Not Die!!

Over the course of the game I inflict over 20 wounds and he saves them all, which means that his warlord is holding up over 400 pts of my army.  My warlord finally dies which opens up the rest of the squad to wail on him with a power fist and a power axe and get the job done at the bottom of turn 6, and the game ends.

There were a lot of would of, could of, and should of in this game, for me at least.  The main one being STICK TO THE FUCKING PLAN!!

Any way, I had a great game and had a chance to see why Greg gets Best Sportsman most of the time.

Until next time, happy gaming.

Movember is Back!

 Lets face it nerds, we are not the healthiest group of people.  We spend too much time in our broholes, drink too much beer, and eat too much junk.

For the last 4 years I have been a participant of Movember, an initiative to get men to be more conscious of the health risks that effect them.  The main push behind Movember is to support the fight against prostate cancer, but it also bring to the light that guys in general don’t take very good care of themselves.  We tend not to go to the doctor no matter what the problem is and that is a sure fire way to miss something important.

How do we do this you ask?  Well, breast cancer has a pink ribbon, Movember has a facial ribbon.  Starting on Movember 1st, I will be shaving my upper lip for the last time until Movember 30th.

That’s right, for the entire month of November I will be growing a moustache!  If men’s health is something that is also important to you please help out anyway you can.  You can do this by making a donation at the Movember web site.  I have started a Movember team called “Mohammer”.  Please feel free to join it, or to donate to it.  If you don’t have any money to donate, please spread the word by growing your own moustache and offering your support that way.

If you would prefer to donate to someone else or to start your own team, that’s just as good.  You can go to Movermber.com

Let’s change the face of men’s health!

Hell, you might even look this manly...

But not likely.

Mechanikon prep - Bastion

For those of you who don't know me... it seems my Mechanikon lists are never based on tactics... but more so what new models and toys I've recently built. So, that being said... The first person that says to me "Why are you using a bastion? They're only armour 14 and can be blown up. Aegis defense lines are way better.." is going to get punched in the fucking nerd dick.

I won some Eldar stuff at Duelcon 2 for being the worst player on day one. I was lucky enough to be able to trade it for something I could use. Most of their Space Marine stuff was sold out. I thought a bastion would could come in useful for terrain if I ever ran an event...

So... now I have a bastion, and I want to use it. So fuck you

I had a bit of a downsy moment when building this bad boy.. so there's a few small gaps. I added the gravel and sand to give it the rubble effect. Hopefully it works.

A slightly different angle and a Brittish swear word: Knackers!

Second layer of glue and rubble
But wait... there's more! Only assholes use GW Moonscape craters when a fucking 10 inch building is destroyed!

Measure once, cut twice. It's ruins for fucks sake. The more cuts the more ruined it looks!
Hmmm... it needs something else...

There we go... a perfectly good ruined bastion!
Now my wine is all gone!
Stay tuned for part II
