LVO Narrative Bound...
Sup everybody, so we are less than 2 weeks away from the grand daddy of them all (for me anyways) the Las Vegas Open. This is the 4th year that I will be going as I made everyone since Frontline gaming started these events. Today's LVO is definitely different from past years, its gotten bigger and better and with GW support now, something that I look forward to year after year. So this year like last year I will be competing in the narrative event. This year marks a big difference as the Narrative guys will not be running it, instead it will be run by a group out of my home state of California and by the sounds of it they are bringing their "game world" to LVO and so have plenty of history, characters, etc to bring it to life. The way I understand it, this group has been playing using the same solar system/game world and so the planet that we will be fighting on has plenty of history that hopefully will make our experience unique and awesome. I definitely will miss the Narrative guys this year as I always enjoyed their special brand of gaming from the amazing tables that they built to the awesome stories they told. Here were guys that were really in it for the fun so much in fact that I might make it over to wargamescon this year just to be a part of it and to join my chaos brothers in battle. I am hoping that some of the hounds make it out this year to LVO but by the sounds of it, I might be the only one that will be showing up. This year however marks another crazy event, my 2 friends for years will be joining me in the narrative event joining the forces of Chaos. That will definitely make it a hell of a lot of fun and only wish that the hounds could come out as well to join in the fun.
With regards to painting, I only have 3 raptors to paint as I really want to try out the plasma pistol squad of death. Depending on how it plays out I am preparing to build another unit of plasma pistol raptors as they are cheap now, being able to shoot in combat and quite easily can put wounds on units thus causing morale tests to be taken at much lower leadership scores. I am still going full bore on my morale reducing army as I really think that this type of list has a lot of legs. I really need to build more units with banners of despair as well as to take units that cause units to lose leadership more. I really want to cause issues with morale even if I only cause 1 or 2 wounds on a unit. I am dropping Belakor for LVO as we cant take any named characters. If I can, I am going to try to build a unit of havocs with lascannons as lascannons in 8th are freaking good. Wish me luck guys. Pic is from GW's Legion preview of the Nightlords. some pretty cool simple conversions for sure and ones I might want to copy.
