202: Throne of Skulls - Result!

Well last weekend I attended GW's Throne of Skulls up at Warhammer World with my Necrons, and I still can't quite believe it but I came away not only with a Sportsmanship Award (joint with 8 others all of whom had 3 of their 5 opponents vote them favourite opponent), but also managed to bring home Best Necron General (thanks to those same sportsmanship awards).

201: Throne of Skulls

This weekend I'm off to Throne of Skulls at Warhammer World.  This'll be my first Games Workshop run tournament, so it'll be a new experience if nothing else.  I've read all the hype and hate that goes along with this but I'm going to try and keep as open a mind as possible and just enjoy it for what it seems to be, an excuse to play 5 games over 2 days.

Well, its my 200th post, can't quite believe it myself.

It's been not quite a year since I had my 100th post, and I've reached 200 so quickly thanks to resurrecting a lot of posts I lost from the past, and migrating posts over from an old blog I decided to retire.  

The total page views for my blog has smashed through 46,000, with Where's Wally getting picked up by Faeit 212 finally toppling the spike I got from attending the first Blog Wars tournament.  That page alone has almost 3000 views!

Items of note in terms of progress for me and my hobby since my 100th post include visiting Salute (1, 2, 3), the birth of One Force and that armies development, taking part in the TFP: Badab Competition and almost winning, finally managing to return for Blog Wars 4 and the subsequent fateful visit to WHW. 

For the next 100 posts, well I'm definitely looking forward to the seeming imminent release of Tau (I may even resurrect my Iron Man themed Tau (and the inspiration for the name of this blog) that were the first things I painted on my return to the hobby, who knows.

Leman Russ (an unboxing)

What a legend, only primarch to have a tank named after him - what better accolade could the imperium bestow upon someone???  As a die-hard Space Wolves player and collector of course I have a soft spot for the big hairy brute, and I'll tell you what, I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what Forgeworld do when they get around to the Sacking of Tizca.

For some, I'm sure the abiding image of Leman Russ is the one below from the cover of Prospero Burns:

For me however, I think I'll always first think of the (very) old Leman Russ model that once was available from GW:
