My Guys Died... A Lot

I am not surprised, nor should I be. However, actually playing with my army, I am feeling much more confident as to what I will be doing with them. After playing an Arena of Death with my Destroyer Lord, I think my next investment should be a small unit of Destroyers to carry him into the centre of battle (after which the warscythe should take care of the enemy swiftly). I also learned another thing that day - killing Draigo makes you popular with his enemies.

I feel like I should finish with something witty or reflective, but I can't think of anything.

First Battle (#2)

After a very lengthy and unexplained break from the hobby, I have finally arranged to have a 500pt battle against my friend's Tau (a whole 11 months after buying my first models). I am still a bit unsure of the rules, but I believe that with a bit of luck, skill, and weighted dice, I have a chance to at least damage his army. I have not completely finalised the list, but I highly doubt that I will be able to fit in any Scarabs (a shame seeing they could prove helpful in tying up his Fire Warriors).

A few more notes:
- I have managed to begin painting so pictures of my army should be up by June
Luckless Xenos and Ko'vash both managed to get through to the national finals of the School League, I guess some sort of congratulations is required
- I have been planning a little terrain project, although it shall remain a secret until it is finished
