I will not be there on Thursday as i have to bring my wife to the stampede and then the Garth Brooks concert tonight.
The website is decent so far......should be great use in future.
Quick update from over the pond.
I am now in the final stage of selling the house and moving over. Wife and child travel over on Wednesday and I follow a week after.
My wife gave me the wrong address of where we would be staying, so my order to PP got sent back. But after a long distance phone call, all is sorted. I should have some trolls to play with when I arrive.
Ghool: thanks for the reassuring words about employment. I hope you are right.
In other news I got my *** handed to me in my first horde game. 15 points. Troll v Khador. He was running 3 juggers and the butcher. Hard nut to crack. Hopefully my next game will be better. Was a lot of fun anyway.
Ok guys, happy to announce our new website/forums are www.calgaryschlubs.webs.com(we will be looking into buying a domain name)
Please hop on over, sign up for the forums(will have to wait till i approve you) and then start throwing up ideas/lists/chat and of course please feel free to give ideas about the site. I think this will be a great thing for the club going forward as a place for specific posts instead of one big thread!!
Please also read the post made by USB in the club ideas section.
Hey Ghool, i haven't found a babysitter. I don't know if i should bring my 5 year old to the painting class for the entire day. I will no mater what show up on sunday to give you the money for the model and a bit more. I could stay there for the entire day on sunday. what are your thoughts for the Saturday situation? Should i try and come and if Taylor gets too unruly then leave with her? I don't want to take away from the other and their learning by having my daughter their, anyway let me know what you think.
I was playing pMadrak, Mauler, Axer and Slag troll. Not the best 15 point list ever. I wanted to use pMadrak as he will be the warlock I have waiting for me in Calgary.
I managed to user the axers animus on the mauler and have him rushing from a Forrest to charge a juggy. He didn't manage to take him out though and then got double teamed by 2 juggies and died.
I used pMadrak VERY defensively which I think was a big mistake.
The next list I am thinking of running is:
Swamp troll is a bit of a strange choice but I am hoping to be able to drag the butcher into a death zone. Any thoughts on this list?
k guys, see you there for 10am. Looking forward to learning and thanks again for your patience with my daughter.
While i think the swamp troll is an interesting idea, and worth trying, you will find most opponents won't let you get the 12 inch drag on their caster whether its due to los or bases in the way.
The slag troll is definately a good idea against him, dont forget he gets a 3rd dice on his dmg roll against warjacks(they are non-living models)
Ghool, my car just broke down and i am pushing the car back with one of my neighbor's. My wife works until 5 today and so what i will do is tomorrow i will stop in to give you the money for the model. I can't tell you how heart broken my daughter is as she was supper excited to be painting a model with daddy while we were both going to school to learn (that what i told her and you should have seen her eyes light up when she thought that we were both going to school to learn how to paint a model) I apologies for this inconvenience. This is the first time my 2007 Nissan Sentra has broken down. I stopped at the 7-11 to get the money for the painting class and then the car wouldn't start. When i turn the key the starter makes the normal noise it would as if it was going to start but it never turns over. Not sure if it's the starter or something else. I am truly sorry for this as i really wanted to go and had the buy in of my daughter.
Ghool, i sent you a PM with my cell number if you want to call me, thanks.
www.calgaryschlubs.webs.com and i'll be happy to chim in.
I'll totally be there! And thanks again for the painting class Ghool. I knew most of the basics that you showed us, but the fact i was able to refine the techniques as much as i did with a little assistance was great!
When we were talking about highlighting black, you said Black > Coal black > Bane Base, correct? I'm probably going to start re-base coating francine tonight, and if time is on my side, i may even start highlighting.

Still alive! My computer set on fire (literally) and died. Getting ready for the Hardcore, although I don't think I'll have time to finish the Stormwall. Should be there with bells on Sunday, trying to figure out Thursday as well. I'll text.
Posting here because I'm not approved yet on the CoGS board. Oh yeah I am moving to Red Durr for September 1. Will probably be too busy trying to find a place/move to make it any Sundays in August. Could be my last Box appearance for a couple months.
[B]Failing rolls on loaded dice all day. [B] | I play Darius... in tournaments.
So as always, i should be down to sentry around 5:00-5:30.
Well, I've been playing for the last 4-5 weeks or so with a couple buddies so im pretty familiar with the rules now ... think I should finally bring my stuff down to the Box one sunday and play with you guys
I assume you guys still play on Sunday? lol
Right now bouncing between 25-35 point games. Still fleshing out the army to get to the 50... but probably will stick with 25-35 for a few more weeks just to keep comfortable.
I've broken a lot of my old habits from playing "that other game" (ie doing movement of my models, then shooting/charging).
I'll swing by this sunday and see how the tourney goes... maybe ill convince my friends to stop by this Thursday as well instead of playing in my friends basement
Hey cyrage, I'll be there on thursday, so you should come on down. Hopefully I'll have my kraken tomorrow........had some paint "issues" last night, but they may be fixed......if so, I will have her with me tomorrow.
