So, I play the tabletop miniature wargame (imagine me saying that with a lisp for best results) Warhammer 40,000. When I’m not busy fawning over waifus, rolling around in my various collections, or occasionally, y’know, working, you can usually find me assembling or painting a new mini, or getting in nerd fights with the basement troll over this rule or that. Recently, a new edition of Warhammer 40k released, overhauling most of the existing mechanics, and this Sunday I’m heading off to a Warhammer 40k tournament for the first time ever. I’m pretty excited! It’s gotten to the point that the basement troll and myself have been fanboying over various Warhammer things for about a month and a half now and Nekochan is getting annoyed every time it comes up.

While I am busy getting things ready for next week’s backer-only mini-update, Warhammer occasionally intrudes. I’ve had strategies and tactics on the brain for awhile- what if I take x unit out of my army and replace it with y? What am I going to do about z type of opponent? That sort of thing. I think my army is pretty good. I’ve got these guys called Pathfinders who have really long range things called markerlights which can supply targeting data to the rest of my army, I’m going to screen them with a couple Strike Teams who have some pretty powerful guns and will hopefully keep the Pathfinders nice and safe. Then I have some kickass mecha, a bomber, and a Breaching Team to track down the enemy and actually deal damage and secure objectives.

I don’t know why I’m telling you guys all of this- maybe in hopes that if I clear all this shit out of my brain I can work a little better? I don’t know. Thanks for putting up with it, I guess, and comment if you’re interested in hearing what happens at the tournament!

  1. I never got into Warhammer personally, but I view that more like a choice to not try a recreational drug because I see the strong potential to get addicted. Table top and LARP games are expensive enough habits. (Warhammer has always intrigued me though.)
