Ok folks, time to get a little corporate now. Usually I stray away from talking GW corporate stuff, but with their recent Year End Financial Statements just coming out I can't help myself. While reading it there was some really interesting stuff out there, lets jump right in and see what goodness Tom Kirby and his associates have given us this year.

So, Wargames Con has come and gone and with it my short lived desire to play ‘fluffy’ armies in tournaments. Granted, I still feel that I can never fully let go of what an army stands for, after all I did decide to play my Blood Angels for the fact that I love what they are and what they stand for. That being said, I also enjoy the fact that they are competitive, if played in a preticular way (IE, Razorspam). Lets examine the hard lessons I learned in 10 games over 3 days…
So often we work our little paint brushes to the nub, forcing the love to
pour out of us, creating a wonderful world of amazing minis. We put tons
of time and effort in developing stories to justify our colors and
conversions. And just as we reach the apex of brilliance...we realize things
have changed. The world has moved on with out us as we slaved away attempting
to achieve greatness.

So how exactly does tuning differ in the old and new schools of Imperial Guard thought?
Lets take a moment to recall the main differences between old and new guard thinking:

This is a combo post to start off a small series of articles about tournaments, gaming and doing things differently. I am going to put out some ideas as we go through this and you can shoot them down if you like, jump on the band wagon or just ignore them entirely.
