    Both of these games were super close!

    Unexpectedly, I was really happy to get to bust out my boyz. I do wish I had more opportunity to play them since we do have such a huge army, I'd be interested to see how they play against other armies and different ways to build the ork list out.

    Either way...... I think this was obviously a super close game. I got way lucky with my mek guns and big guns. I like them in theory but a couple bad rolls really messes up their usefulness. I think if that's the plan, you take a bunch of them since they are so cheap. Getting 3 Zzap guns together could be really deadly. The Shokk attack gun was fantastic. I never used one before in 8th and I was delighted how well it worked. I wanna try the tellyport blasta next. See?! There's just so much to try!

    But yeah, anyway, I love the fact that it came down to the tau needing to punch Ghaz to death to win. I almost wish they had pulled it off.

    Great game yesterday and today.
    Everybody Wang Chung tonight.
