It started on the plane back from Adepticon 2014. As we settled into our seats for the long trans-Atlantic flight back east we were talking about what had been our favourite events at the con.
We'd taken part in a couple of tournaments, shopped as well as taken a handful of classes. We'd gone sightseeing the days prior to Adepticon kicking off, while our biological clocs were ajusting.
What we all agreed on was our Main Event, though, was the Team Tournament. Lots of cool people! Squaring off against cool, themed and good-looking armies. It was a blast, and we knew we had to do it again.
This time we'd do a couple of things differently, though...
We would take a properly themed force - and we would beware the Kraken! ;)
A few ideas were tossed around, but the choice quickly fell on Space Marine armies. We'd all choose a different Chapter and take thirty to forty models - mainly deployed via Drop Pods.
Over the course of the following year, a lot of list building took place. In-between a lot of sidetracking and procastination, models were bought, buildt and painted.
Now, just two weeks before we kick off again, I can present my Crimson Fists:
I'm taking a Codicier with a squad of Sternguard Veterans. There's also two Tactical squads. All three have Drop Pods. Finally there's a tank-hunting Devastator squad, backed up by a Techmarine with a Thunderfire cannon.
See you in a couple of weeks!
