So, my first batch of Christmas presents are in!!  So far, I have come out with three sanguinary guard, an assault squad, a librarian, a terminator captain, and a vindicator tank.  I also have a whole bunch of ork heads.  (Thanks Mom!!)  Nothing else, just the heads.  I'll explain that one later.

Kill Team Battle Fluffy Style

What follows is the fluff from a recent kill team battle I had with my brother.  I just figured I'd have a little fun with it.  

Sgt King led his squad of veterans carefully thought the old battlefield.  They had been sent to gather some intel from a collapsing bastion that had been the target of particularly heavy fighting.  He picked his way through the debris and the barricades that had been set up to defend the line carefully, not wanting to fall victim to foolish footing.  He looked around him in the dead quiet of the dawn, puzzled by the foreboding feeling washing over him.  He opened a vox channel in his helmet.

So it has been a few months since I actually posted anything up here.  With my wonderful new job, things have been a little hectic.  Something about working 10 hrs a day, 6 days a week at a job that is an hour and a half away makes it a little hard to actually play warhammer or even keep up a blog....or does it?!

I still manage to find times to play.  I love kill team for that reason.  I come home, make a plate of food, grab my brother, and play a game while I eat.  Then I go to bed, wake up the next day, and do it all over again.  It's actually quite amusing to do this.

On a different note, I actually decided to try the dreaded bane of magnetizing.  It's something I've wanted to do, but I never actually sat down and decided "Hey, I'm going to do this", at least until now.  I bought myself a Dremel and 300 little tiny freaking magnets.

Slowly but surely, I've started putting together an Assault Squad using them.  It's annoying to get the poles to match up (or not, as the desired case my be), but I've been managing that okay.  My biggest problem so far is simple impatience.  I magnetized the sergeant's back and his jump pack so that I can remove it should I desire to do so (35 point discount on transports...I'll take that), and it will also allow me to magnetize my sanguinary priests, captains, chaplains, and librarians to wear them as well.  So, I glued the magnets in place.  I wanted to see if it worked, so I put the two magnets close together and...the magnet pulled out of the jump pack.  Crap.  Round two...(fight)...glued everything in place, waited a little longer, and tried again...magnet came out of the Sgt's back.  Wait, what?!  Final round...(fight)...glued it all in place and went the frak to bed.

In the morning, I found that the magnets were now firmly in place, and I now had a removable jump pack.  I then drilled out his arm sockets and mounted magnets into the other four jump packs in that kit.  It's going quicker now, at least when I can combat my own impatience with it.  I'll be posting pictures once I get the squad done up right.  Next step, vehicles.........yay.........
