so playing against GK is just plain not fun at all.
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.

its hilarious that I can still blow Ravenwing/deathwing combo armies of the table tho..
There's always some armies you just have an easy time with. For me it seems to be Space Marines.

this is what I at least have to finish before buying more
So....you're like a week away from buying a new kit? :laugh: I put together seven models (infantry, nothing big) in the last two months. Boo-yeah.

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

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...

Great output of work, some good painting, I would only suggest drilling out the barrels on all of your guns, makes them look a lot better in my opinion, keep up the good work
