Sloth be thy enemy!

So guys and gals its been while! Of course for a large part of my time away from the blog'o'sphere I have been happily touring Japan.

So whats news? Japan is awesome... If your living there and reading this then I hate you :D also can I come stay with you? but apart from that in the world of Hobby there was Arcanacon!

2 days and 6 games, Great people and shit dice lol. Its a big weekend and with the heat, enclosed spaces and general unwashed masses a wee tad funky, yet for all that I wouldn't have missed it for the world! How did I do I hear you ask? 60th of 140 players, 2 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses... which for the Astral Wolves is about normal, granted the army would do better if I wasn't throwing my usual shit dice (I failed in 1 game every single armour save at 3+ I had including the follow up feel no pain saves on my plague marines!) so as you can imagine sometimes I got a frustrated!

However as the saying goes "Lucky at cards, unlucky at love" except im the opposite! I have a great life, great friends and some extraordinary luck in real life... In fact just recently I got excepted for an Aerospace Engineering place that ive been trying to get for some time! So suck that 11 ones in a single throw!!! oh yeah I have thrown 11 ones out of 16 dice. do the math.

so until I can get off my arse to throw some pretty pictures up please enjoy this shot of a wonderful store I found in Shimonoseki!

Arcannacon 2011

Well this year I got the chance to play at Arc 2011 the 14th running of this event.

Im not going to go through a round by round account as to be honest my memory is a little sketchy and I failed again to take a camera to the event to take pictures.

Suffice to say I had a blast and fared very well finishing 13th out of 140 players,  was awarded the best space wolf army award, and had a 4-2 win loss record.

The tournament was well run, the only downside was the heat.  I met some great people and had some great games as well. 

My hat and fez is off the the WATT crew for a great tournament and I will return next year.

A few WIP shots of the honor Guard i'm working on hope to have them finished this coming week
