I've had some tough times over the editions facing these guys with Guard. It's a bit of a crap shoot, specially if your opponent is always out fer your throat. Part of why I have such a large collection of models is out of adapting to beat armies as opposed to just collecting what I like for my army. Strangely, when I gave up on the internet's advice to me and started just playing my army a ton I started winning more often than not despite playing a low-tier army (BA). Even the GK guys with their Draigo-stars have had a hard time sweeping me under the table since I reintroduced Dante, someone I had formerly given up on based on the interwebz information. I guess I play with some cool people though, which helps even when they bring game-altering unit choices. We also communicate pre-game about the brand and age of cheese we'll be bringing out so total blow-outs don't happen anymore. Key.

There's always some armies you just have an easy time with. For me it seems to be Space Marines.

So....you're like a week away from buying a new kit? I put together seven models (infantry, nothing big) in the last two months. Boo-yeah.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

I got a fun battle lined up for the end of Juli, as soon as the local Dark Angel player comes back from deployment we will duke it out in a 3000 Points battle, looking forward to this, as it gives me the chance to use the Guard (AM) formations to their full strengths.

Excellent, I love the bigger battles! Very interested to hear your thoughts on the new formations, I was considering trying one or two out soon in a 5000 point game.

Great work so far on the ultramarines, it's a very impressive allied detachment that you have going there!

I already beat him once on a 2000 Point game, I combined the Emperors fist armoured company, the Emperors blade assault company and the Emperor's wrath artillery company. highly effective I wiped his ravenwing/deathwing combo army of the table

welp I caved in and got the limited edition space marine tribune, good times when the store only had 10 available.
probably going to paint him up as an Ultra Marine and pick Ultramarine painting back up after getting him finished.

Heh. Congrats.

But isn't that a little like saying, "I'm addicted to the most boring drug around, and I just relapsed."

Despite the perennial hate that Ultramarines get, every time I play Rome Total War I get an urge to start a collection...
