Wait, What?

So a sudden change of pace here.  Back in the fall I got the Kill Team Box for the marines in it as well as the rulebooks.  On a night a couple weeks back where I had free time but wasn't really in the mood for marines or CBT, I put together the fire warrior squad.  Back in 4th Edition I had a Tau Army that went away partway through 5th Edition.  I always liked the clean lines and the aesthetics of the Tau (not so much the Kroot or Vespid though) and I figure it'd be nice to get a small Tau force to play around with.  So I found a great deal on a Tau Starter Box (half price weekend sale for the win) and have the first crisis suit out of the box built.  Still two more Crisis Suits, 2 Fire Warrior Teams, and the force commander to build.
Still kicking around ideas for the fluff but I'm leaning toward building it up as a Counterstrike Cadre.  I'm planning a few more Crisis Suits, a couple Piranhas, and maybe a Hammerhead.  We'll see how it goes.  As Cheef would put it, something around the 1500 point mark perhaps, enough for a small fun game.  I'm thinking arctic world perhaps and duplicating the Ghost Bear color scheme on the Tau, but we'll see.  As we all know by now I really don't like painting so .... maybe.
Next up is that today I had a nice day off and ran over to Knoxville to do a bit of shopping.  I hit up a game store and got a few CBT blisters that'll be in a later post.  I also checked out a new comic store, Nerdvana Comics, that opened up in just back at the beginning of the year.  It was my first chance to swing by to check it out and it was worth the visit.  I picked up a small Star Wars poster that caught my eye and an old GI Joe Annual #1.  I grew up with GI Joe (the 6 1/2 inch ones with the cartoon show) so it's a nice piece of nostalgia.  It's a nice little shop that's still getting fully set up but staff is very friendly and knowledgeable.  Definitely was a fun place to spend an hour or so today.

Well, that's all for now, just a small update, and I'll see you all next time.
