Well, hello everybody! Thanks to Slaede for allowing me to contribute to his blog. My name is Bill Kim (Centurian99 on various 40K forums), and I've been playing Daemons since they were first released four years ago. I've managed to do pretty well with them, with my best showing at a major tournament being last spring in the AdeptiCon 40K Championships, when I advanced to the top 16 out of a field of 256. Of course, my dice abandoned me at that point, and I not only played four games in the finals where my secondary wave came in, my reserve rolls kept most of my primary off the table until turns 3 or 4. Against the caliber of opponents in the finals...the technical term for my status was "totally and completely screwed." Thems the breaks when you play Chaos Daemons. If we didn't want to deal with that in 5th edition, we would have been playing Grey Knights or Space Wolves.
But now the 5th Age has passed, and we're well into the Golden 6th. I had all sorts of tactical ideas and the like to write up, but since the rumor mill has finally started to churn with details about the upcoming codex release...there doesn't seem to be that much of a point to doing so. We get another two weeks to enjoy daemonic assault, fearlessness, eternal warrior, and screamers and flamers.
The first post I was going to do was either going to be "The Glorious Seeker Cavalcade" or "Why I Respect (But Don't Fear) The Banner of Doucheness...er...Devastation." But the first could very well be moot in a few weeks, and the second could also be moot in a few weeks. So if the readership has a preference for one or the other, let me know.
