Mike Mudd Memorial Tournament

Mike Mudd Memorial Tournament

So, we've got our hall booked and paid for so we have our date.  So the 5th Annual Mike Mudd Memorial Tournament will be held on November 9th, 2013.  So for those that don't know what the MMMT is, it's a tournament that us at the Stratford Gaming Union put on every year (for 5 years now) that is put on in memory of one of our members that passed away at far to young an age.

We put the tournament on and all the proceeds from the tournament go to support our local OSPCA.  Mike Mudd's parents attend every year to help us hand out the prizes.  For the past few years we have raised well over $1000.00 for the past few years in honor of our friend.

This year it will be held in the same hall we had last year.  The Stratford Army & Navy at 151 Lorne Ave E, Stratford Ontario.  It'll be 1750 points and we'll be hammering out the rest of the rules as we get closer to the event.

Blud Boyz? some of you may have seen I've created a red Ork boy in a jump pack.  I had some bitz and when I saw the jump pack I just had to paint the Ork red because my first army was Blood Angels and so if I was going to build an Ork in armor with a jet pack he just had to be red.

Now because of of new 6th edition I can play the Blud Boyz with the Wulf Boyz.  But now that I've built a test squad here I really want to make a 1750 point Blud Boyz army now.

So here is the squad...

Red ones go faster?

So, You'd think I'd learn right?

Not so much. So the Wulf Boyz are built up to a playable 1750 point list and works at 1500 points as well which are currently the only two points I really need to play at for up coming events. I never did plan to build it to big. I had looked around at all the parts I had laying around and started a new project. Proving as I said I just will never learn.

Where have we been?

So...We've been gone for some time and that's mainly my fault. I'm the guy that runs most of the social media and admin work on most of the Stratford Gaming Union sites. Running the forum, this blog our Facebook page and our twitter ( @StratfordGaming ) but a lot has gone on in the last few year that really has made me drop out of the hobby and thus the running of these sites. Not to bore you but to put it shortly I had started a new job at the same time burnt myself out of 40k and mini hobbies all together. This all came at the same time 6th Edition dropped which seemed a good time to take a break. I'm back though, I couldn't stay away to long. I've been playing 40k since 2nd Edition and with four armies I wasn't going to just stop forever. That said, planning for MMMV - The Fifth Annual Mike Mudd Memorial Tournament has started up with the writing of and testing of missions. You can bet Blood Bowl will be one of the first off the press. So with that I've started to plan out and re-work my 5th ed armies for 6th ed. My Iron Warriors which were mostly painted back in 3rd Ed need the biggest update. So my posts will probably start with my update to them.

1500pts Pic Batrep Dark Eldar vs Blood Angels

Introduction: I strolled into the Gaming store this past saturday, once again. This time I had a scheduled game all lined up. If you know my story I have just recently moved into the area so I am fairly new to the community. This means that I have been trying to find my niche spot within the gaming tiers of the area. Last time I was at the store one of the -twins- called me out for a game, he said he had heard I was a -decent- player and therefore wanted to have a game. I was flattered (of course) that my reputation had preceeded me :D. I had heard of the -twins- over the last month or so from various members of the gaming community and they are held in high regard when it comes to list buinding (using powerfull lists) and their generalship skills. And so, with this I set out my army and we rolled for the mission straight out of the book. Mission? 4 Objectives Deployment? Pitched Location? Sir Games Alot in Barrie Ontario The Table: We made sure that there was enough terrain on the table this time, 25% and good LOS blockers. Then tried to mirror it as much as possible in an adepticon format. The green markers are the primary objectives. Uploaded by Photobucket Mobile for BlackBerry The armies: I was using the same tournament list that I have been using since I got here and had to drop to 1500pts. It is a strong DE list that has a lot of synergy and can catch people off guard if they are not careful. At a glance the list only has 2 venoms... but at close range (12inches) the army shells out almost 80 AI shots. Hence not needing to rely on the venoms, and boosting 15 AT weapons for decent tank busting capabilities. (with 18 grenades if the wyches get stuck in). His list was a variation of Blood Angel razorback spam. Cheap squads, cheap HQ and then as many pts in firepower as possible. Of course this variation has adapted to the local meta and he has been using vindies rather than predators because of the prevailence of FNP and other foot troop armies in the area. The use of HK missiles was clearly because of certain DE players that love their night shields. At a distance he could target 6 different things a turn and then even more as soon as the fast vindicators got within range. So I was in for a fight!
