Today was my first tournament and I must say I had a lot of fun. If you take a trip over to CursedTreasures to see some pictures and results. I had a Major Defeat, Minor Lose and a Draw. Not bad for my first tournament and I did walk away with the Best Sportsmen award. This was a practice event to get ready for the big event in February. A few things I learned today are, first you need to remember the objectives and second keep track of the time restrictions. So I am going to need some more practice and finish painting my army. I should have my heroes finished by the end of this month then I have 19 archers to get painted. With the holidays and will be busy.

Sunday was a practice day for LotR and I got two games in. The first game was a tie and the second was a major victory for my army. I learned a lot from everyone that was there and had a really good time. This Sunday there is going to be a tournament taking place at a local game shop. I decided to share my list for this event.
Shagrat with shield 60 pts
Mordor Uruk-hai Captain with shield 55 pts
Orc Drummer 40 pts
Ringwraith 55 pts
Orc Warriors with spears X20 120 pts
Maroannon Orcs with shields X14 112 pts
Mordor Uruk-hia with shields X 7 63 pts
Orc Trackers X 19 95 pts
I am looking forward to this Sunday, it will be my first tournament. I work on the weekends and tournaments take place on the weekends and that means I can't take part. I really enjoy LotR so I am taking some days off and some sick days so I can play in these tournaments. All this is leading up to the big Grand Tournament in February, 2011.

GW leaked this photo out for the Storm Raven and I have heard mixed reviews. I don't know what all the fuss is about. I think it is going to make a great new addition to my Ork army. The cool thing is the model will not take much effort for me to convert. I personally think this is going to be one of GW's best selling models and there will be a lot of happy Ork players. I am going to mark this one as a WIN for all Ork players. When it comes out I will get one and start planing all the things I can do to it.

My army is getting closer to completion. I just finished my seven Mordor Uruk-hai and I really like the way my army is shaping up. If you have been following my progress you might have noticed I am keeping them with the same paint scheme. I am making them an elite fighting force for the Black Gate. I might steal the name "Black Company" from Glen Cook. I am currently reading his book, Chronicles of the Black Company.
I must also admit that my painting has slowed down. I am only painting a few nights a week. With the holidays right around the corner I don't see me having more time to paint. I decided to start working on my heroes for the rest of 2010. After the heroes are done all I will have to paint are my 19 archers. I will be pushing myself to get everything done by the February game date.
This Sunday, tomorrow, we will be having a group of players getting together to test play our armies. I am looking forward to spending the day playing and getting some feedback on my army list. Well I have to go, have a good day everybody.
