Creative title, eh?

Random thoughts for the day-

1) Spider-Man (and Venom) from the Marvelscape set... I really like Swing Line. Holy cow, what an awesome ability.

2) Mimring kind of sucks.

3) Checked the UPS tracker- the stuff I ordered from E-Hobby Tools should be arriving tomorrow. Some graveyard stuff, a bridge.. and some other goodies. I'm excited to get it and do some repaints.

4) Still haven't received the Heroscape figures I purchased from someone. I truly believe they sent them.. they just should have arrived by now. 7+ days for priority is a bit long. We'll see

5) Got a new water heater installed today. The old one was still working, but it was like 18 years old? Time for a new one; the guy offerred to take cash and not charge us sales tax.. would have saved like $70.. but he said he couldn't write us an invoice if he did that. I don't think he had any bad intentions- but we paid the tax...

Obama, My Job, Wind, and My Army

A few quick random comments, to begin:

1) Barack Obama. Hells yes.
2) I really hate my job. Really. To the point of tears on occasion. I do not enjoy calling people at 8am to collect a delinquent $150 on their Visa card that they know is late because we called them at 8am the day before when they told us their husband just died and their hours got cut back at McDonald's.
3) It has been so windy for a few days now, birds keep getting into our wood stove 'chimney' and can't get out. We really need to cover it a bit better. :-/

Moving on! My first tournament army got its first real test last night, playing against my wife.

As a refresher- my army:
Marro Stingers x3 180
Crixus 270
Krav Maga Agents 370
Raelin (ROTV) 450
Major Q10 600

She had:
Sir Denrick 100
Sir Gilbert 205
4th Line x2 345
Tarn Vikings 395
Agent Carr 495
Airborn Elite 605

We played...

My First Tournament Army Part 2... and other babble.

First, a summary of part 1: "I can't decide on an army for my first tournament... WAHHH! WAHHH! WAHHH!"

And now, for Part 2:

Finalized? I dare say. I'm going to go ahead and share it. I mixed my research with my personal preferences, and then some advice from a couple of people through PMs. Might not be unstoppable, but I feel pretty comfortable with the setup:

Marro Stingers x3 180
Crixus 270
Krav Maga Agents 370
Raelin (ROTV) 450
Major Q10 600

I'm not used to using so many of one squad, when playing in my limited amount of games versus my wife or myself we usually use a wide variety of figures... but those setups can't be seriously competitive (not in my hands at this point, at any rate).

Anyhoo, in other news... watched/listened to the only remaining Firefly/Serenity commentary I hadn't previously heard. The crew commentary on the Serenity Collector's Edition....

My first tournament army.

Posted January 16th, 2009 at 10:39 PM by Melwing17
So I'm attending the tournament coming up on January 24th.. and at this point, I'm only certain of two things:

1) I'm nervous.
2) I totally bought Scooby Doo Underoos for the charity donation.

I don't own, and have never played on, the lava or snow sets. Also never used glyphs. I've read the rules, it just makes me a bit nervous in advance. Also, I have mostly just played the game by myself... and a few times with my wife. Mostly by myself though. We've kind of been socially repressed the last year or so, so it's also a bit daunting to think of being in a place (a church, no less) with a bunch of new people (no offense to anyone). I know it'll be fine once I'm there, though.

My army setup has been something of an...well, enteraining annoyance, I suppose. I've gone through at least three "This is it, the final version!" versions in the past week... and my "final version" right now only contains one card...

So. I ponied up some dough for this wonderful site. Hm...a blog. I am notoriously awful at these things. However, they've always been at places like Xanga (way back when) or Myspace, which generally irritate me. This site certainly doesn't irritate me, so that should help.

Who the heck am I? My name is Joshua. I'm 26. I live in Camas, WA (Basically a suburb of Vancouver, WA which is a suburb of Portland, OR.. whew). I have been married to a wonderful woman named Abbie for almost a year now (11 months today, actually). We have been together since December 2005. We have a little house with a not-so-little mortgage, but we're doing fine.

I work as a bill collector for a very large bank. I honestly hate what I'm doing, but it has gotten to the point where the benefits of the job outweigh my hatred for it. As in, I get weekends off (Abbie does too- she works elsewhere with a much better ($) job). I work 5am-9am, then have 9-2pm off, then work 2pm-6pm. M-F....
