Argle Bargle. Dont expect this to stay on topic people. anyway here we go

Man... this is getting tough. I recently talked to Neal at The War Store who has been nice enough to sell me some CSMs at a discount price. For those confused here the story. About 2 months into my now 7 month obsession with 3rd ed 40k (Mainly due to the fact that the only people i play fantasy with are my 2 friends, and i have about 5 that play 40k, no way in hell i'm gonna go play in a geek store) i picked up chaos word bearers. I Liked them alot. At the time i liked my eldar more, but the chaos started to grow on me. after about a month or two my army expanded to about 2500, and i was going to get more. Well, i ended up going broke (well i thought i was, i was checkign the wrong bank account it turns out) and so i sold them for quite a bit of money. Well Soon after i realised that Tau and Eldar just didnt fill the gap. Tau were fun and all, but they did get itresome, and Eldar. Well i hate people who play eldar (most not all). Hell my only gripe about Eldaronline is that they get so much cheese promotion (Starcannons over 3 in anything below 2k is waaay more then overkill. even Especially against poor SMs)

Even worse is the defenceless SM bashing, but that war has always been going on. Despite what most eldar players say, Eldar are easily the easiest army to win with due to sheer customization options. Hell you could be equipped to fight orcs then turn around and fight SMs and still kick the poor guys ass. Aspect warriors are easily some of the best fighters in the game. i mean, f*ck look at howling banshees. 4+ armour save, ignore armour saves, 2 attacks, and strike first. How the f*ck is that not just plain uber? and striking scoprions... man dont get me started. i've had a group of 5 with no exarch absolutely shred through a group of Incubi and an archon. Throw in fortune and you have a near unbeatable squad. it always bugs me to see people saying eldar need a new codex. my f*cking ass. Eldar already have one of the best most balanced codices out there, AND THEY NEED A NEW ONE??? f*ck that man. Know who needs a new codex? IG, SoB, Dark Eldar, and even more so tyranids. i mean, f*ck look at the wraithlord. Rock solid, one of the best CC units in the whole f*cking game, AND comes with a heavy weapon (f*cking cheesecannons). Why the hell doesnt anyone take brightlances anymore? Honestly! f*ck man i almost refuse to use starcannons, let alone en masse. My normal beil tan army has f*cking 2 TL BLs, 1-2 BLs on Wraithlords (depends if i'm using 1 or 2), and maybe one in a guardian squad. f*ck even that is overkill, but image if that was cheesecannons!

I also hate the defence of cheesecannons. a friend of mine over there (Moonsinger) wrote up a rather large and fairly accurate description of why Starcannons werent cheesey. Unfortunately, it was not near enough to convince me. I mean, f*ck look at it. You shoot one of those thats 2 garunteed shots at S6. For most things thats overkill.

The biggest thing i hate about EldarOnline is how people are constantly bragging about how they decimated some poor little 13 year old who just started playings space marine army. I mean its ok to win against him, he should expect to lose, BUT THERES NO f*ckING NEED TO ABSOLUTELY DEMOLISH HIS MORALE YOU SELF CENTERED COCK MONGER.

but all in all its still a great community. f*ck why would i have over 2650 posts there if i didnt think so. Some of the mods are pretty cool too though, Anivan Ra, Sandman, and AiR are all quite cool. Anivan is a pretty neat guy, i bought like 76 gaurdians for just 2 boxes of DE Spearmen and 20 bucks. Great Deal. there was some other stuff included as well (6 pathfinders and some FWs)

i offered more money and he wouldnt take it. its like he wanted to get ripped off. Hes a pretty cool guy, and a really good drawer. I'll upload them to my ranchoweb account and post them some time, hes got serious talent. His DE Sorc is one of the best i've seen. He sent in his resume into GW but those mother f*ckers never responded. oh well thier lose not his.

On the topic of art, another big mod there, The Sandman (yes the sandman from portent) is another very talented artist. I remember staying up one night and talking to him as he was colouring this fantastic drawing. he was sending me the whole process. It inspired me to learn to use photoshop again. I used to do a little bit but god, i dont even remember the slightest little thing now. Oh well i'll learn eventually. I bet a good JTHM picture would look cool coloured. hell i think thats what JV used to colour the back of Squees big book of horrors. And i assume its what Rikki Simmons used to colour in I feel sick 1 & 2.

On that topic i need to order the new squee shirt. its quite cool. i'd get a link but i dont feel like it right now.

Didnt i have a topic at the begining of this? oh yes, anyway. I've been getting real tempted to add 3 boxes of cadians to my order, and use a LotD army list. It seems very solid, and its the way imperial armies should be (Space Marines being elites and lords and such). I'm quite excited, but i still need to think up the name for my custom Legion. I might end up going a variation of Red corsairs. The army is gonna be f*cking huge though. Easily enough to play IW, Word Bearers, Thousand sons, Night Lords, and if i buy the cadian models, alpha legion. I'm kind of excited because i'm ordering a Daemon Prince, and i've never used one before. I know its a big point sink, but i have a soft spot for totally badass heros while neglecting the rest of my army. i do it in WHFB all the time. Hell usually 20-30% of my armies are all heros, but for DE it gets to the point where its quite essential. Especially when i use my 40 CoKs list. I've been testing a new one out and its fun as hell. Here let me get it. Its alot smaller then i usually play (Its only 2k, i usually go at about 3k) but its still fun. Its not hard to convert over to 3k either. Its focues on magic and dark riders, its not the most effeceint list i have ever made, but its by far one of the most fun (having 2 12 man CoK units fail stupidity when they have a hero in them is NOT COOL
