Alex,So I feel pretty bad about the whole thing but there was a part of me wished it was a real contest since I was tempted to make err.... let's call him err.... Sandy Dumphris bring something crap to Blog Wars 3 so he won't win again (I reckon he could just buy a cheaper wedding ring and get the DE stuff himself)!
You are a crazy bastard!
OK, I'll bite...
The Kabal of the Pink Mother Fuckers has been lying low for a while, waiting for reinforcements to arrive.. the sight of a screaming Razorwing Jetfighter dropping in from the clouds on PINK wings and reaping a heavy toll on the enemy is where it is at!
I guess I have to sell it here.. blackmail? Hmmm... I promise not to win Blog Wars 3 if you drop me the Razorwing and Battleforce? lol.
I'll take any list you want me to.. shit, amazing...as long as I have it.. BA, SW, IG, DE, GK, Necrons, Tau, Vanilla Marines, Chaos Marines, Sisters...your choice, I'll take up the challenge..
I will literally sell my soul for the DE Battleforce and Razorwing..
For "soul" read: chance to become a living legend and win Blog Wars for the third straight time and final time in 5th ed.
Anyway.. it's Sunday .. I have to go and shop for Wedding Rings.. eugh..the expense..
On that note I've decided to add something to the prize fund for Blog Wars 3 with an additional competition. Apologies to readers in the rest of the world who won't be able to make it to BW3 but sadly it will only be open to those coming along. Here's the deal. As you know the Blog Wars tournaments are centred around the principle that Special Characters are awesome. If you disagree thats fine, but you are in fact....wrong.
Anyway, I'm always pleased to see someone that has gone out of their way to theme their list around a particular special character. For example, someone might make a Dark Eldar list which had Baron and only hellions as troops. They might throw together a Space Marines list for a particular chapter lead by their special character e.g. Khan with a crapload of White Scars bikers. Either way the idea is that, rather than taking a standard tournament list and just ditching a couple of things to shoehorn in a special character, they've actually themed their army. Now, in most cases that means they'll have probably gimped themselves with regards to competitiveness (if that's a word) but it's definitely entering into the spirit of the event. Therefore, from my own pocket (assuming I don't manage to sell enough tickets to fund it properly) I'm offering a battleforce of the winner's choice for the army which, in my opinion, best epitomises this spirit.
Now, as I've said, this might gimp your effectiveness and chances of winning the actual tournament but I'm hoping some people will enter into the spirit and bring something a little different. Everyone who's coming is automatically entered and once I've received all the army lists (deadline is mid-May) I'll make a decision and announce the winner at the end of Blog Wars 3.
