So here I am in the middle of 40k hell. It started at the beginning of July when I drove out to Wargames Con for 11 games over 3 days. Then I had a couple of weeks off before the Bay Area Open where I got to play only 7 games.
Now this is where things start to pick up…last week I broke my bad luck streak at the 'Ard Boyz and I came in 3rd. Then this week I have a 3 game local RTT for 1750 points I can use to practice for the Nova Open Invitational.
Late August –Sept.
So next week I am working like a manic to get ready for the Nova Open. Not only am I painting like a madman, but I am working 12 hour days to take off of work early next week. Now this where I am going to die by 40k…so the Nova Invitational is 5 games on Friday followed up by 8 games over the weekend for 14 total games. I was going to take a late flight out on Monday, and see some of Washington DC, but I think I will try to take an earlier flight and get myself out of there to crash at home.
Then the following week there is the So Cal Smackdown in LA. If they get their act together and some of the better players in So Cal show up I will think about making an appearance.
Then it is on to a local GT. I get to sleep in my own bed!!! This is a 30+ player local GT that Empire Games in Mesa is putting on for their 3rd anniversary.
“Ard Boyz Semi-finals. I am glad this is only one day and then I will be done!!!
Then I get to sit back and relax and work on my 4th edition army and I do not have to worry about traveling or big GTs until Neoncon in Vegas in early November. Looking back that I would imagine that I am going to be so burned out that I will not pick up a 40k model for a long time.
