Today I got a chance to try out my new double wraithstar list against my good friend Rachel's Tyranids. She is always a ton of fun to play against and at the risk of sounding stereotypical, an amazing painter. Keep reading to see how it all played out...

This weekend I attended a small tournament at Merlyns with relatively poor turnout (5 players) So instead of doing a full tournament report I decided to just do a quick report on the two games I did play (I had a second round bye unfortunately)

There is a 1250pt tournament coming up next weekend at one of our local shops, Merlyns. In preperation for this tournament I'm going to get a couple games in over the next week to test the waters for this event but I am feeling pretty confident that this list is going to be the one I am going to be bringing to the tournament...

Sunday I got a game in against Mekel, a local Eldar/ Chaos Marine player. He wanted to play a single detachment 2000 point game, so I decided to bring some toys to experiment with that I haven't brought recently just to see if perhaps I wrote them off too early. Namely I brought barge lords, doomsday arks, and scarabs. All of which I have tried previously and found to be not to my liking.
Mekel brought his thousand sons with Fateweaver support, this was bound to be an interesting game...

After 15 games of playtesting I think its time to shift my thinking a bit. With the advent of 6th I was very firm in my belief that royal courts were a point sink and that I would benefit more from having more bodies on the table then I would from having a few expensive units with better guns. But I'm starting to see how having that little extra oomph in the units might actually go a ways towards increasing the combat effectiveness in my army. So with my experience over the past couple weeks and some insight from the interwebs I've developed a new list. Check it out after the jump.

Today I faced off once again against Caleb and his beautiful Daemon army. Caleb's primary focus is as a hobby player and as such usually brings slightly fluffier lists with all the trimmings such as units in holy numbers wherever possible. I usually have a ton of fun playing against him and he often makes pretty ballsy moves that definitely ramp up the fun factor and when they succeed they often put me in a pretty tight spot. Anyway here's the report for you:

So today I figure it's time for me to introduce a new kind of article I'll be bringing to MSS going forward. From time to time I'm going to bring forward a new list or idea I want to try out, when I do so I will be posting an article with the list and a brief description of each unit and it's purpose. Going forward as I post game reports, instead of giving a simple summary or having to reference lists from previous battle reports I will simply provide a link to the list in question then detail any changes from the list provided in the link. This will allow for me to provide more information on any game report without bogging any readers down in minutia they may already know of/ don't care about. So without further adieu: My updated Necron list w/ Chaos Marine Support.

Today I finally played against Necrons. This was my first 'mirror match' of 6th edition so it was nice to see how the other side has been faring. It was also my first game against an army with any large quantity of flying vehicles so it was definitely a learning experience.

Today was game 10 against our 'local' 2011 'Ard boys regional champion, Kriston Broxson (whose Dark eldar I played in game three). I told him to bring a tough list against me And so he brought his revised Draigowing paladin list. The following is what occured:

So far, I have played a grand total of 8 games of 6th edition. In order to get the ball rolling I'm going to go ahead and post abbreviated game reports for these first 8 games. Starting today with my first 4 games and finishing tomorrow with the next 4. After these initial 8 I will be making longer more detailed posts but I just wanted to get the first 8 out quickly. So enjoy the first 4 and tune in tomorrow for the next batch.
Welcome one and all to Mindshackled Musings. My name is Jase, although I go by many names while upon the interwebs. For my blogging activities I will be using the handle 'Nemesor Sombrero'. I chose that particular handle because I feel it really get's my intended tone across, I chose Nemesor because it carries a weight of authority and badassery, anyone named Nemesor must be a bad ass, I also like it because I'm a big fan of all things Necron and I wanted to show that through my handle. I chose Sombrero in order to set my tone and point out that all my posts will be for the most part lighthearted with a sense of humor.
