|And the winner is...|
Saturday November 20th Six-Deucer and I threw our hats in and took part in a 2,000 point teams "for fun" tournament hosted by Gabby at Olympic Cards and Comics. The event was a huge success largely due to Dante and Purgatus and quite a few other (to whom I tip my baseball cap for I don't recall your names').
First of all- no pictures for my part. Since this was my first tournament (albeit, a fun tournament), I was so focused on my army, rules, and communication with my partner, Six, that I forgot to take pictures. This was unfortunate because there were some truly well-painted armies taking the field, Saturday.

|These kids are competing for fun, much like Six and I will be doing today. Six is the kid in the pink cap!|
Today is the big event! Olympic Cards and Comics will be opening their doors at 09:00 PST to host a bits swap scheduled to take place from 09:00 to 12:00 PST. At 12:00 PST a 2,000 40K Team Tournament will begin. This will be a "fun" tournament and require participants to pony-up a 10.00 entry fee.

|Chaplain with Honor Guard. In the background, two assault squads' are visible.|
I'm not talking about primary or secondary weapons- meltaguns, plasma pistols, infernus pistols, melta-bombs, and such. I'm talking about frag grenades, krak grenades; compulsory or standard equipment found on every single unit of that particular type (such as infantry).

A week from today I plan to participate in my first tournament, the 40K Bits Bash at Olympic Cards and Comics. The Bits Bash is a teams' tournament, where each team member supplies a 1,000 point army following their relative Force Organization Chart (FOC). Six Deucer, my partner for the tournament, will be fielding Imperial Guard (IG), and I will be bringing a Blood Angels force.

With a mere 9 days until the 40K Bits Bash (a "for fun" 2,000 point team tournament that will take place starting at noon at Olympic Cards and Comics), Six-Deucer and I will be meeting up at Olympic Cards and Comics each with a 1,000 point army to play some 40K and practice for the tournament. We'll start tossing dice around 4:30 PST. If you're in the area, or have the time, head on in! Tonight one of our mutual friend, Reknyard (also new to 40K), will be bringing his Space Wolves- it should be a lot of fun!

I'm posting an update of my Terminator objective marker. The chalice dwarfs the Terminator and as a result I may not incorporate it with this model. Let me know what you think:

Tonight's Thursday Throw-Down will be starting at 5:30p hours PST, rather than the usual 4:00p hours. Bring a 1000 point army, or a 2000 point (or both) for some fun at Olympic Cards and Comics!

I've posted a handful of army lists since the inception of my blog, Against the Grain. After looking back at some of these lists (with no actual experience fielding them), I have to say some of the disparities are much more prevalent to me, personally.
