Getting sick has slowed me down and that stinks, I was on track to get everything done the way I wanted but now I'm a bit worried. This weekend I'll be working on more of the playground for my kids but I'll need to finish up a few things hobby-wise to be happy with my progress. I want the War Walkers done along with the Serpent Turrets, I'm hoping that I get some of the bikers ready as well.

I think the List is pretty solid and contains counters for most things. I'm a little weak against high AV fliers but what can you do, I made it to cover most of my bases. Guiding the Reapers will give me a good chance of putting the hurt on a few. The timeline saw me cut a bit here and there but I'm pretty happy with it.

I have a ton of firepower and threat, it will be cool to see what people go after first. The Dragons are always a pain, the Reapers will rain death from afar and ignoring the Nightfighting will be cool. The Serpents loaded will troops will also be a top threat so hopefully I can keep them moving around and alive to drop a ton of pain on people.

Tonight I'm hoping to get some work done on the War Walkers and maybe finish them up. That would make me feel a bit better 8)..
