been sucked into World of Tanks

Since I am about to hit 300 battles in World of Tanks I can now solidly say that I love the game.

If you like tanks at all (who doesnt) and like to blow shit up, this is a great game.  The only caveat is that the game is brutal.  I got to ask the developers about it at GDC Online and they just explain it this way:  "Hey we are Russian, we have no problem getting killed over and over again in order to figure something out." I hope Americans dont puss out and get scared off when they get rolled starting out.

If you grab the game throw me a holler.  I am Astrothumps in there.

World of tanks: KICK ASS FREE GAME

If you like tanks and Shooters I highly recommend this game.

All you have to do is sign up for the "closed beta" and in about an hour you are good to go.
Its going to be Free to Play and right now is a good time cause you get free Gold for upgrades :)

The Storm Raven looks rad

Can't resist
From Warseer:

New army bandwagon

I have resisted the temptation to go Space Wolves since that bandwagon has left the building.

But I have decided to start saving pennies to jump on the GK bandwagon as soon as it hits.  I would love to have a couple Storm Ravens, the new Plastic GKs and actually Assassin squads :).

Getting ready for 2k tourney

Game Kastle is hosting a 2000 point tourney this weekend and I am pretty excited.  This will be my first 2k tourney and hopefully my CSMs do well.

I am resting the girls this time and have decided to go with the Original BadAss himself: Abaddon.  So this is the list:
DP with Lash/wings
1 Termie Champ with Cfist and cmbiMelta with 3 Termies Icon of Tzeen, 2 combiMeltas in
Land Raider with Extra Armor.  This is where Abaddon will ride.
1 CSM 10 man squad in Rhino 2 meltas with Champ with pfist
1 CSM 10 man Lascannon, melta with Champ with pfist
1 CSM 10 man Lascannon, plasma with Champ with pfist
3/2 Obliterator squads

Small army but hopefully Abaddon gets some action.  I am hoping to match up with some armies where Abaddon can truly shine.  But even if I get destroyed at least I will get to make a run at having the ultimate badass.
