Our metagame has slowly shifted and increased in power these past few months. We started off with nine-model Blood Angel lists and have ended up with finely tuned take-all-comers armies capable of dealing with a variety of threats. Still, more fearsome armies are sure to follow.
A friend of ours and his roommate from Virginia came up for the day and played some 40k. Ellie took to playing the Tyranid player, Dave, winning the game 7-2. While her Trygon was destroyed by a Hormagaunt blob with toxin sacs, it did enough damage and delayed their goal enough to come from behind with her Prime+Warriors clean up crew.

The game floor has been busy at Games and Stuff these past couple of weeks, as minis and card gamers have had several events. This past Saturday, we had Warmachine, Malifaux and 40k all being played, with some players preparing for tournaments and other learning games. It was quite fun seeing all of the different systems and armies about. Prior to that, the SCG Elite IQ event had so many card players in the game room that we probably should've taken some tables out into the sales floor for more space! As well, you can check out Certs Tabletop blog for the large Infinity event that ran at G&S, sporting lots of cool laser-cut terrain and fully painted forces. One of the things I like most about G&S is that there are always plenty of boards to pull out, or accommodations made for people if they want to play a game here. Staff will certainly help you out if you need it, rather than tell you to buzz off because their tournament is full and more important.
That's all of the pictures I have for now. In the works: A 500 point tournament for our regular guys here, plus any competitive comers who want to prove supremacy! Also, I really need to finish these Planetary Empires tiles and get started with that!
