Thursday Night at 7:30ish PM at the Den works
Friday Night at the Den works (anytime)
Saturday mid-morning to afternoon works.

Counts as league game, while we're at it?

Sure... I had a big witty reply, but my iPad ate it. 6:15 Friday at the Den, I'll try ans get there early to secure a table.

It won't affect our game Mike, but I think I might do 3 Wraiths with Whip Coils and 3 Nekkid. I think two loadouts is enough for wound allocation shenanigans (especially if a D-Lord is in the unit) and I'm not sure what the best number of whip coils to have in a unit is....???

Well, that went well for me but not so well for Mike.

The one thing that didn't really synergize that well with my list were the Praetorians. I deep-striked (deep-struk?) them in, they killed an Ironclad and some dudes, but because the 2-wraith 2-dlord unit is SO STRONG, I don't want to give the Praetorians the D-Lord. This "free's up" 200pts, which is a Monolith. That Monolith may, in the end, give me way more tactical options than the Praetorians do.

The Triarch Stalkers are AMAZING. First of all, that twin-linked targetting relay is amazing. 20 shots on an ironclad dreadnaught from the 10 guys inside a ghostark means 3 glances now. That's blowing off arms. Once the Fisty arm is gone off a dread, the Triarch Stalker really likes that assault. It *will* take out a dread, eventually (3 S7 attacks at WS4). The Heavy Flamer option is handy to have. I managed to kill 1/2 a scout squad with it.

I missed not having a Surfboard Lord or a Court, but I'm extremely happy with the D-Lords (They ganged up on a big unit, killed it, then each destroyed a pred)

yea, your list did ridiculously well last night. and those praetorians really did stand out as out of place with that list. i dunno what happened there with my list; been a long time since someone knocked my army out to the man and earned a Wipe Out! victory. and in 3 turns no less. i want to retry that list again against another opponent and if it still does 'that' bad, i might have to rethink what i bring to the tournament.

Mike, You are now T^3. Good luck with your next game, T^3:)
