Your opinion, colors and layout.

With my big switch over, which I did so well many people didn't even notice I think, I took the opertunity to change up the format and colors of my blog. I went from the color scheme somewhat matching my Nid's to a more blue orientation that fits my Marines. But matching colors aren't as important as being able to read the blog.

So it goes to you the readers, what are the suggestions? What colors need to be changed? Does something need to be moved or made differently?

I've also been toying with a Banner/Image, so we'll see how that goes.
I'm posting this between classes, Battle reports should appear later tonight.

A flock of games!

So pretty much in the past week a lot has happened. I played against Spaguatyrine, then went to the tournament in bloomington. When I got back I faced against necrons and all of the included "shenanigans". Along with school projects, work and a friend's funeral, I haven't had time to post anything. I'm hoping this weekend I'll have time to post battle reports. A brief summary;

Spaguatyrine's space wolves held me off and ended the game 0-1 on objectives as I just couldn't contest that one he had.

At the tournament first turn I faced Footdar, and got trapped as defender in my backfield which didn't go well for my fast moving assault army. Coupled with some really bad rolling, I did manage to pull a draw by shoving 20 assault marines down the middle of the board.

Second game was against Space wolves, and a very nice and good player. The mission was kill points and we stayed even until the last turn. It was 4-4 on KP, last turn everything was in combat, he blew up a dreadnought, killed my captain, honor guard, and my first assault squad, while I managed to pick off another transport. So that made it 5-7, oh, but my second squad in rhino never came in from reserves, so 5-9. If they had came in, I'm thinking it would have made it a draw.

Last game was against the Albino orks, objective mission that you score a point end of each opponents turn for holding an objective. Early on my drop pods helped give me the advantage as I contested his back objective. Through excellent gaming, he managed to bring it up to a draw by the end of the game.

Then I faced against Buckler's necrons, and he had some good and some bad rolls. He managed to immobilize my LR first turn, then my dread the next. He also failed Ld10 break tests twice, when he was back field, thus taking them off the table. I found Twin-linked to be useless with my rolls. He thought he had the game till my assault squad jumped out of the LR and take on his squad he brought to the objective. Through all of the Necron's/Buckler's Shenanigans, I contested all of the objectives and held one.

Thus 1 win, 2 draws, and 2 losses, updated on my game counter. Seems I still have some learning to do with Marines.

Progress, one step at a time.

Ok, so I doubt many of you heard, but there was a hit and run last night. A 20 year old woman was riding her bike down her street and was struck. Full news blip here. I found out while I was at work, she was in the ER most of the night/day. She didn't make it. This young woman was one of my dear friends. It hasn't fully hit me yet, and I've been trying to keep busy for the most part. I'm going to try and finish this blog post because I am not sure when I'll next be up to doing anything.

Under construction: See New managment

Um, how do I put this... Long story short, LordKilmor = TheGraveMind.

As TheGraveMind I was going to update the blog, and my profile while I was at it. When I noticed/realized something, I don't have a Gmail account. Yep, My computer saved my friends old account info and had the auto-log in thing active. At first I thought it was just an old account I had made a while ago and forgot about. Well as I was going through some of the profile stuff I realized it wasn't. Another hour of looking later and I can't seem to find a way to transfer TGM as is. Thus the birth of LordKilmor. Eventually after I get everything over, and maybe delete TGM, I'll see if it will let me reclaim my name under this account.

So until then, please ignore the extra names, while I take this time to toy with settings, and copy everything from one account to the other. Hopefully this doesn't cause too much trouble for everyone. I already had to go through the pain of going to everyone's websites and finding their "follow" button.
