This one goes out to Pat...

Why? you may ask? Well Pat has recently given me some internet abuse regarding 'pimping this blog in my sig' on the 11th company forums. so I guess I should let you guys know how I am getting along. 


Well - where can we start? What have I done in the last few months! Well Its going to have to be a quick skirting over of the details and then hit you with my new list in this new GK era. HERE GOES!







1 - European team championship - What a time was had by all (I am the Welsh Vice captain in 2011 and soon to be captain in 2012). We came 7th in the end and this was absolutely amazing! from 21st to 7th is one hell of an effort from the boys. You can hear how we got on by looking at the coverage 40KUK had in the ETC special episode . I had a blinder of an event if im honest. only lost once to the French captain. I should. would have won it but for the ref forced a turn 5 finish after my 5th turn movement phase. It was ironically the best game I played at the event. alas we ran out of time and Eldar did what they always do to deny me a win.

We came the top home nation tho! England came 8th and we went berzerk - one hell of a result!

Also I got to play Nick Rose in the singles event. We had a great game! I could not stop rolling 6's! he gave in I think turn 5 after the last of his termies got rended. It was a spanking! O the glory. I also got to play Jon willingham in the last game, another of the USA team. I won this one as well! Thats 3 - 0 for me vs the Americans!  Even with my silly TWC wolf army. Ya face states. ya face... Love all the team america guys tho. I have Nick's shirt in a frame at home. What a guy he is. Whoever says anything bad about Nick does not know the guy. I have to confess I have a man-crush on him. he is so affable and laid back and most importantly a great player in every way. A true Gent!

2. well - nothing really - been a bit 40k light at the moment! my local club (OGC) are in the middle of the final to end all finals! Me vs Berty Bassett! this is the second year in a row we have played in the final so we wanted to make it a special one. We play 3 games using. 1 game the club votes on (tau on tau which I won). 1 game we choose each others army (I got BT and he used Guard to stop him from using them in the last game if it went that far) But Bert won that one in the last turn. Turn 6 it would have been all over!
The last game is next week. We choose our own armies now and its Pitched battle/KP. Some list shenanigans should be in play :-P

3. Looks like Im going to write for Bols soon too! Nick asked me to contribute something and we are in the pipline for some wolfy European goodness. Cant wait.

4 - my new list  - after the TWC swansong at the ETC its time I went a different route. This is the future for the time being.
