    Doom is a badass, I always love him when I proxy him

    What do people normally do for the Mycetic Spore (besides proxy, since I bet most tournaments won’t allow a drop pod to count as a proxy)? I saw Jim’s spore but I have no idea how to make that and it’s bigger than I would like anyway.

      You can make them fairly easily out of modeling clay and a Styrofoam egg, for example. Or, there are companies that make nice ones like Mr. Dandy.

    You know why you won Reecius,

    You didn’t play Chaos 🙂 Chaos is … sad to say … the least competetive book in all of 40k.

    It’s a fun book, but it’s not going to win a lot of games.

      I think Chaos can still win, particularly with allies, but it sure as hell doesn’t scream power, I agree.

      Nids though, are bad ass! I am very happy they are so good now, as I love playing them.

        Since the early nineties, I’ve played Nids 4 times. I think it’s only a matter of time until it’s a fifth.

          Hahaha, that’s it? Damn, I play Nids often, seems like they were always pretty popular. In 4th they were the flavor of the month army, they were everywhere.

            By “played” I mean, bought, painted, and sold.

            I had two armies in 2nd, and 2 in third. I didn’t play them in 4th or 5th.

            I’d love to play a monster-mash list with mostly big critters.

            Ahhh, haha, that makes more sense. I misunderstood you. Yes, that is pretty impressive.

    Doom came to town and owned my bikes! I definitely will not that mistake again. Thanks for the games as always! Good to learn something new!

    Smashing Tervigon with Poison (Str 10, AP2, Poison) has a good chance of instant killing that Captain.

      I believe Dan equips his captain with a storm shield, so it’s not so easy to squish him with the tervie.

        Yes, Artificer and a Storm SHield, he is a tough little bastard!

    Hi there Reecius, a friend of mine made his spore from a Gormiti egg from a toy store. It actually has the same size as a drop pod and does costs around 15$, and you got a wonderful Gormiti inside it too.
