Well after what felt like a lifetime of travelling and a relatively painless adjustment to driving on the wrong side of the road; I have made it to Kansas, a place where dreams come true! So far though the only dream that has come through is eating bison.
I’ll be here for about 3 months for work, but that does not mean the hobby will pause, oh not at all. I have carted over my DE with me and am already scouring the Kansas and Missouri area for games. So far it looks like there might be a few guys in my local area playing so that’ll be cool. I’ve also managed tee up a spot at the Rockwars GT in Little Rock Arkansas, which I’ve been assured isn’t too far from where I’m at. This is a cool looking tournament of about 90 players that uses the Merseyside Meltdown comp, it’s got some wacky scenarios and battle points are only worth 1/3 of the points on grab at the event. I’m expecting this to be a realy hobbyists’ event and will be sure to take plenty of pictures. You can find out more info at:
But what about my hobby you ask? Well I originally intended to keep working on my Dark Elves with the intent of making them into a High DarkWood Elf army that could use all 3 elf books but have changed course. I really enjoyed getting my DE army finished but I don’t think the aesthetic could cover all 3 books and I want to continue to try and push myself to get better at painting (or at least to paint more). Also I figured I won’t have spare time/cash forever so I should make hay while the sun shines. As such, and being the bandwagoning timmy that I am I have decided to try my hand at Wood Elves.
I believe that Wood Elves would suit my style of play, are sufficiently filthy and I’ll be able to paint them up nicely. My goal is to have this army ready for Masters.
On a final note, I have moved Kiwihammer to a new host, Hoopla Hosting. This should see the site stable and functioning again.
