Centurion Practice over…

Posted by Kirby on 02/03/2011


I just finished a game against BroLo for Cent practice and won a tight game. I didn’t get as many practice games in as I’d like (and none against IG :() and although I didn’t record all of them to the right, I did reasonably well and feel much more comfortable with the list on the tabletop than in Lords of Terra.

Now I  just need to paint a bunch of gants! Still…

Tyranids go!

Posted by Kirby on 01/02/2011


So Tyranids have been chosen for Centurion with the following list:

Hive Fleet Fatum

Tyranid Prime w/Lash Whip, Bonesword, Toxin Sacs, Regeneration, Rending Claws
Hive Tyrant w/Lash Whip, Bonesword, Old Adversary, Heavy Venom Cannon, Hive Commander, Leech Life, Paroxysm
Tyrant Guard w/Lash Whip

2x Hive Guard
2x Hive Guard
2x Hive Guard

11x Termagants
10x Termagant
Tervigon w/Catalyst, Toxin Sacs, Adrenal Glands, Cluster Spines
Tervigon w/Catalyst, Toxin Sacs, Adrenal Glands, Cluster Spines

Tyrannofex w/Rupture Cannon, Cluster Spines, Dessicator Larvae
Tyrannofex w/Rupture Cannon, Cluster Spines, Dessicator Larvae

Totals: 1750 points
5 Monstrous Creatures
29 critters

Nothing unusual from what I’ve been using lately. I decided to go with the Tyrant rather than the 3×3 Raveners just for that extra scary MC in combat, parxoysm and old adversary with Hive Commander providing me with a tiny bit of deployment/reserve shenanigans if needed. Anyway, had a game today against Vince with him using my Mech Marines. Was perhaps one of the most lopsided wins we’ve ever had with a near tabling by the end. Pictures and report are going up on 3++ as we speak!

Twitter and Pics

Posted by Kirby on 04/01/2011


So 3++ is now on Twitter…oh help us please! You can follow us on the go here: Twitter
For those of you who don’t know we also have a feedburner here: Feedburner
And Facebook here: Facebook

Basically I’m a network machine!

I’ve got a lot of pictures in from readers lately and Brother_Loring has put a few up on 3++ with his Monday Day Hobby Day but I will be posting them here and archiving them soon as well so keep a look out! Any others who are interested in having their work displayed, please send us emails and we’ll get them up :).
I haven’t had a chance to game lately as the missus has a couple weeks off from work so it’s her time but hopefully can get in some games soonish to decide on my Centurion list! Still tossing up all three really in terms of Tyranids, Blood Hammer and Mech Marines. Thoughts still appreciated there!

Calling a new Waaagh.

Posted by fester40k on 23/12/2010


Hidey-Ho fellow Greenskins.

As part of what we do, I have thrown up a few pics of the army I am currently building for my Orks this year…

All WIP, of course, but you should see some more coolness come and go as things take shape (and my Xmas stocking is filled with plastic crack!)

Winner of FNIF Round 40

Posted by Kirby on 13/12/2010


BTW, just thought I’d point out I won the latest FNIF (40) without actually being included in Dethtron’s ever hilarious snowmobiling. Apparently 41 people think they are me and believed I should win. Go me =D. Finally, after all the intentional rigging and backstabbing by Dethtron, I win a FNIF! Let this past week live in infamy.

Clarification and Call Out for Army Pictures

Posted by Kirby on 08/12/2010


Just so everyone understands, this isn’t replacing ANY 3++ content whatsoever. 3++ is staying the exact same. However, some of you may recall the concept I had with the My Armies section which hasn’t really worked well for pictures. It’s been great for Army Lists and stuff but not so much more displaying armies or changes. This is what this site is for. It gives me access to some more pages and I can post up half-arsed WIP pics because I don’t paint quickly. Tutorials/conversions will all still be done on 3++ but stuff I’d normally post in my Warseer painting blog will be done here. Hopefully the other authors who join will also do things like this, too! Furthermore, information on particular armies such as fluff and background will be posted here and importantly: galleries. I essentially want 3++ the Painting Side to be a huge and organised (key word) gallery for 3++ authors and anyone else who is so included.

Since this crazy idea is based around pictures, army progression, etc. this is a call out for you to send me army pics, unit pics, army progress shots, etc. The more the merrier.

Obviously I will be putting my stuff up here as it gets done and hopefully people like Vince, Rupert and Koopa will as well but I don’t want this to be limited to just 3++ authors. We’ve already got some of Lauby’s pics up (with his permission and some chocolate bribing…) and we want more! So send them in to kirbys40kblog@gmail.com and they can join the gallery or get their own post! When you do so, please indicate in the title they are pictures for this blog otherwise I’ll email you back! And you don’t want that…

Anyway, you can also see my Tyranid and some Marine photos/fluff are up which I will be updating with some better ones hopefully on the weekend. I’m currently working on my SM as well so this should be updated more as well. Hopefully will get in some games this week which I’ll post pictures of up here and analysis on 3++.

Remember, this isn’t 3++ but rather an offshoot really for my own personal pleasure and to make it easier on you guys to ensure you get the content you want where you want it. Hobby articles will still be posted on 3++ but they will have a purpose. Any other ideas for the new blog would be great but just wanted to clear the air there!

…hello?

Posted by Kirby on 07/12/2010


Hi kids. You’re probably wondering wtf is happening right? Well I’ll tell you… Nick from Blood of Kittens (TastyTaste to you) attempted to swoon me into becoming part of his network…which I don’t really want to do, sorry mate! However, in attempting to swoon me I got to see WordPress which…well it’s both awesome and annoying as all hell. I like the way 3++ is, it’s really easy to modify things and whilst sometimes it screws up…a lot (see editing), the ease of use, flexibility and customisation are what make it attractive. So what does WordPress bring? Well it looks cool and I think it’s mildly easier to navigate and if I spent a whole bunch of time working on it, I would probably find it as easy to use as Blogger. However, I don’t have the time, inclination or money to do so (you need to buy a domain to get all the cool stuff which I don’t think I’m comfy doing currently).

Why the hell are we all here then? Well as I said I think WordPress is just that wee bit easier to navigate and as I’m sure some of you have noticed, it can be hard to find stuff on 3++. Also with a bit of HTML knowledge or Blogger use, individual pages and posts are quite easy to format (without said knowledge it’s just as bad as blogger). Don’t worry, the archiving I’ve done there will remain the same but I think a transference of some content might be in order. Namely, the painting and modelling stuff. Don’t worry again, this will all be archived and posted on 3++. However, due to the above reasons I think army progress for myself and any authors so inclined will be post here, sort of like a forum painting blog but with obvious connections to 3++. This will also be great to generate Gallerys of our models (you can already see some of John’s [aka Lauby]) or have extra battle-report pictures posted.

Again, don’t worry! 3++ will stay the same and you don’t really need to come here at all unless you want to look at some cool pictures and crap. As time goes on I might transfer more or less to and from the two blogs but the Blogger one will be the primary ‘hub’ so to speak.

Anyway, thoughts and suggestions would be fantastic as I get to work setting this up and demanding pictures from my authors :P.
