Kate Upton says, buy my stuff!

The time has come to put away childish things in favor of other childish things that are more fun to me at the moment. So I am looking to get rid of some of my 40k armies. Grey Knights is first on the chopping block.

Here's a list of the Grey Knight items for sale
13 Halberd/Storm bolter Marines (1 unpainted)
7 Psycannon Marines
2 Hammer/Storm bolter Marines (1 unpainted)
1 Warding Staff/Storm bolter Marine
2 Incinerator Marines
4 Sword/Storm Bolter Marines
1 Vindicaire Assassin
1 Inquisitor w/book&bolter
1 Castellean Crowe
1 Inquisitor Coteaz
2 Brother Captain Stern (1 unpainted)
1 Terminator w/psycannon, Sword (Used as grand master)
1 Terminator w/incinerator, Sword (used as cheaper Grand master)
3 Heavy Bolter Razorbacks
2 Dreadknights w/removable heavy incinerator, sword, and hand
2 Dreadnoughts w/2xautocannon. 1 has the forgworld Grey knight torso and all the arms are from forgeworld
1 Land Raider (godhammer, unpainted) w/Grey Knight doors from forgeworld
2 Storm ravens w/multi-melta, assault cannon
12 assorted henchmen to use as fodder
They are painted to a good tabletop standard that is supposed to look like they are made of stone and copper. Somewhat steampunk, somewhat ancient stone warrior. Some are based on "lost souls" bases from Mr. Dandy.  You may notice some chipping on the bases in the pictures. They can easily be retouched, but the bases do not hold paint all that well.

I don't want to bog down the main page, so pics after the jump and this gif of Kate Upton!

Malifaux 2nd edition!

Hey all, I know it's been a while since anything has graced the pages of 3forint. I just haven't been playing any sort of war game recently. After the BAO, I really put some thought into it and 40k just isn't the game for me anymore. I have lost whatever passion I had for the strategic aspects of the game and GW itself is just sucking all the fun out of the game for me. With that out of the way, I would like to post about some other games!

Just Yesterday, Wyrd games announced Malifaux 2nd edition! The new edition will be pre-released at Gen-Con this year on August 15th with a regular release in October. They will be releasing teaser images, models and other cool stuff in the meantime. The first of which....

Is this little neverborn lady
Now who that is, I don't know. The image name is Candy, but the pre-release info implies that it's "Tera, the Herald of Oblivion".

Some other cool stuff from the pre-release info
  1. Streamlined rules - Could be good. hopefully they go in the right direction here as the rules weren't that hard to follow in the first place
  2. New Masters - Sweeeeeet. It mentions henchmen getting promoted, so that could open some sweet new lists with old favorites.
  3. Gremlins to be a faction - This might get my buddy Logan to play, haha
  4. Easier to read card format - This is awesome. The cards are a bit tough to parse at first and anything to make these better is cool by me. 
  5. Story moves forward - That's a thing that happens in a game??? (hint, hint gw! haha)
  6. FAQ - I guess they are centralizing their faq off of the forums. Seems like a good move
All in all, this looks like it could be a cool release. And Wyrd makes really cool models and has the best Gen Con specialty models, so I'm sure this year at Gen Con will be awesome for them!

A quick note. Are there any games in particular you guys would like to see me cover? I've mostly been playing magic, but I wasn't sure if this was the right place to talk about that. Let me know!

Chaos Daemons - Flying Circus Take 2!

Hey party people,


I am on the cusp of deciding if I want to go to KingdomCon in San Diego and play in the Broadside bash in a couple of weeks.

Following the dismal performance at the Bay Area Open it has really helped me evaluate the army I am going to take and whos and the whats of my short comings in that particular event.

What did I lose to?

Flamers / Screamers Demons - Check Ill never lose to that again.
Zombie swarm -  I have a solution for that.
Tyranids - I got a solution for that too!!!!


Here comes the 2nd version of the Daemon flying circus, equipped with:

Answers to all my god damn problems.

Bitches are definitely not my problem in 40k
List and ideas after the break!

Dok's BAO

Hello everyone, as you may or may not know last week was the Bay Area Open in Antioch, CA. This is the big tournament for us around here as it's run by cool people that we know and is generally pretty straightforward in it's missions and rules of play. (Also, it doesn't hurt that I've done pretty well in the past)

This year? Spoiler alert!

Not so much. (89th place is just the 88th loser)
I know wat duck... I know...

I wanted to take some time and talk about what was different this year and how that might have affected people's performance. One thing you may notice when looking at the top of the stack is that there aren't any familiar faces from the years prior. The faces were at the event... they just all looked sad and not in the top spots.

Remember when I told you all I was awesome?

Well Awesomeness confirmed!!!!

Reece over at Frontline Gaming gave called me out as one of the "Really Good Players" that lost to Liz as she won the whole damn thing on their podcast. It is awesome to be mentioned a long with Allan, and Allan (Blackmoor)

Here is a shameless plug for my awesomeness!!

I also took a few pics of peoples armies while we are there so if that's the type of thing you are interested, you should probably click into to the main article.

IA 12: the Fall of Orpheus

It's been a while since I read Sandman, But I don't remember space marines hanging around when Orpheus fell...
Really though, Forgeworld announced that they are getting ready to preview IA 12 at Forgeworld open day! From the teaser trailer, it looks like necrons, IG, and Minotaurs are going to be battling it out. Minotaurs are cool, and Necrons could always use some more love, but aren't they tired of designing for IG?

Here's the trailer anyway, it's got some cool stuff going on and a pretty clear "hint" as to who the protagonists of this book are. 


Bonus!

Armies of the BAO 2013

Every year, I like to cruise around and get some pics of all the awesome stuff that people bring out to the Bay Area Open. Here's a look at some of the cool armies from this year.


Note: I will have my opinions of the event and a recap of how it went for me a little later this week I think. It was super exhausting and I'm still trying to wrap my head around the shit that went down. Anyways, on to the pictures!
