Merry New Year!!! (Last Post of 2011)

Hello All,

I want to wish everyone a happy new year and give a little update on what has gotten done at the end of 2011.

On thee hobby front I have amassed 611 point on my point tracking system (A modified system based on the one Lone Pilgrim came up with a few years ago.)

Here is his system reprinted here:


"In order to motivate myself to paint I give each model a score based upon it's size.

Infantry = 1 point
Large infantry, Cavalry, bikes = 2 points
Monster or Dreadnought = 5 points
Vehicle = 10 points
Superheavy vehicle = 20 points

My aim for 2009 is to score 100 points or more.

Total points for 2009 = 81"

Here is my modified list taking into account I play Fantasy and 40K.

Infantry: 1 *
Large Infantry: 2 **
Cavalry: 2
Bikes: 2
Monster: 5
Dreadnought: 5 ***
War machine: 5
Vehicle: 10
Super heavy: 20
Titan: 40

*Includes Small 6mm vehicles and escort size fleet scale star ships
** Includes medium 6mm vehicles (eg: battlemechs) and cruiser sizes Fleet Star ships
***Includes Large 6mm vehicles (eg: Ogre Tanks) and battleship scale Star ships

This is a little lower than my 2010 total: 983 points
I account the lower number to work and becoming a NOVA staff member.

If anyone is interested in the really cool spreadsheet the wife came up with please let me know. I will be happy to share.


With January bringing the re-release of VAMPIRE counts for Warhammer Fantasy I decided to give the current book a go before it goes away. My opponent played Skaven (My opponent always plays Skaven)

2000 Pts - Skaven Roster - GS Morstorm's Chittering Horde

Grey Seer On Screaming Bell
Chieftain (Battle Standard Bearer) with Standard of Discipline
Warlock Engineer with Doomrocket
Warlock Engineer with Warp-Energy Condenser

24 ×Stormvermin, Full Command
30 Clanrats, Full Command
Poisoned Wind Mortar Weapon Team
20 Skavenslaves with Pawleader
20 Skavenslaves with Pawleader
20 Skavenslaves with Pawleader

24 Plague Monks: With Full command and Gleaming Pennant

Plagueclaw Catapult
Hell Pit Abomination

2000 Pts - Vampire Counts Roster - Vampire Lord Glick

Vampire Lord- Dark Acolyte, Avatar of Death (Shield)
Vampire (Battle Standard Bearer)- Avatar of Death (Shield), Wailing Banner
Necromancer- Invocation of Nehek, Raise Dead, Vanhel's Danse Macabre

10 Crypt Ghouls with Crypt Ghast
25 Skeleton Warriors with full command
26 Skeleton Warriors With Full command + Spears

Special (23#, 383 pts)
19 Grave Guard with full command and The Banner of the Barrows
4 Fell Bats (Total Crap!)


The battle went for the full 6 turns and by the end it was officially a draw. There were around 220 points difference in our scores. Unofficially The Skaven had the extra 220. I have to say the the Hellpit is a pain in the butt! I like the current Vampire army and I am sad that i did not play it more often. I look forward to the new edition when it comes out.

Well that is all for now...

See you next year
