Adepticon Relic

I was playing in the Combat Patrol on Saturday at Adepticon, and it was Orks, Orks, Orks, and Space Wolves.

The Space Wolf player was using counts as rules, but I didn't mind so much, as his models were really sharp. Not Golden Demon level, certainly, but they had a look and depth to them that made them stand out. Sadly, I didn't have my camera with me at the time, so all I got was his Army list, which you see above.

Look at the level of effort taken to get that thing just so. He didn't have to go to that depth, as a simple typed thing would have got the message across, but he went that extra mile. I know it's a small thing, but that extra effort is why I go to bigger cons, so I can see what rabbit people pull out of their hat.

And yes, he pummeled me. :)


  1. Hey there!

    I'm actually the guy you played, My name's Tim and I remember our game :) I had a blast playing you and I'm flattered you remembered and posted about the game and even my Army List.

    If you'd like, check out my blog where I'm keeping up on my own stuff, commissions and just hobby articles in general. Be happy to hear any comments or anything you might have.

    I think I'll have to plan a post on army lists now...


  2. Oh, blogosphere, you're so small!

    Dude, that list was one of the most impressive I've seen on that small a scale. People need to see stuff like this so as to be inspired. I assume there's no problem with me linking a few pics of the army here? I certainly impressed as it pounded me to a fine paste. :)

  3. Heck, half my inspiration for things I want to do with my own armies come from blogs and boards!! Link away at whatever you'd like, my friend :) I'm just glad you and I had a fun game and were able to take away some stories from it is all!

    Hopefully you and I can have a rematch next year!! I'm bringing Grey Knights. Yeah yeah.. band wagon, thou art attractive :P But I also needed a small army that I could paint quickly since I've got a bunch going on this year :)

  4. Nice, I'd be down with that, and I'll get you next time!*

    *Actually unlikely. :)
