Things are slowing down a bit...

Hey gang,

Todd here from CG2. With the cooler air and falling leaves we welcome a change in season as well as pace for CG2. Well the NOVA open is behind us, and boy what a great time it was. Perfect way to end the summer. Todd W. also kicked but in Ard Boyz and is actually in the finals. What a very busy summer indeed. So after all this, a small break was in order to spend time with the family. I did play a little to many prep games and primers. So after a few weeks I am ready to pick up the dice.

To my surprise, things are slowing down a bit. Is CG2 shutting down? heavens no. The group is very much active. Tom, Kevin and the Warmaching guys have officially registered with Privateer Press and are in the active league. There is also some Pathfinder RPG action starting I do believe. So what am I talking about. Life...the real world is going to slow most of us down. Brian B. is getting ready to go off to some "Special Training", George N. is getting ready for a few shooting matches (Olympics here he comes) and myself has to go and train the new wave of Armored Crew members in the Army (Pvt's). Gene S. will also be busy with Army stuff and a future home coming of his household Governor (Wife).

So sadly you can see a large majority of our active group will be busy. So in advance we are sorry for the lack of video and gaming shenanigans in the future. So WTF CG2? Ok ok, I know so how will we end our season? APOCALYPSE!!!!! oh yeah finally right? Oct 15th is going down, Xeno Vs. Imperium. For a big bang we are throwing down. Brian, Gene, George, Todd x2 and possible Craig will be battling it out for a season finale! Of course there will be loads of video and pics!

Is that it CG2? No no, remember in January we will host the 2nd annual "RUMBLE ON THE RIVER" tournament. This will be our third event for the area and we are looking into making this one big!!! I'm talking maybe 2 day event big. So if your in the east Alabama, Georgia or Northern Florida area, look for upcoming info on it. As of now it will most likely be held in the same place as last year, Ft. Benning GA. Lunch will be included and Prizes will be bigger than the past events. Once again keep checking the facebook and this blog for more updates.

So friends that's about it. Once again we are not down or breaking up. Just keep looking for more updates as time goes on. Remember to look on the facebook for game link ups and so forth. Until then...Keep rolling those dice.

'Nother update

Hey guys, Kevin here, Figured I'd drop a line with some quick updates on the warmahordes front. Our group is growing and to quote Martha Stewart "Thats a good thing". We'd like to welcome Matt on board. He is knew to the area from the north west and brings alot of warmahorde event experience. Looking forward to working with him on the future of these systems in our area.
More to the current news, We are staring down the barrel of the opening rounds of our Journeymen League, the new sanctioned league setup by Privateer press. Anyone interested in joining our league feel free to contact us and we'll get you enrolled.

On a personal note I've picked up cygnar and dumping my menoth, just not really feeling them anymore. I got a good deal on a large part of my cygnar army from a swell fella named Geoff on bartertown, Thanks again. Also Tankertodd's working on a warmachine table for us, I'm really looking forward to seeing it finished, he defiantly knows his terrain. I'm sure one of the two of us will get pics up.
Oh and lastly anyone who has picked up space marine on xbox360 I and a few others are on xbox live with it too, Lordboximus82 us my gamer tag, feel free to hit me up. 

Anyways that's it for now, dinner and homework time,

Kevin (Lordboximus)

Treefort Ard Boyz Experience (submitted for Todd W.)

This is a testomonial written by Todd W.

The Ard Boyz Tournament at Treefort games in Georgia has come and gone, and with CG2’s regular ass stomping of the competition. Of course it did not go off without a few hitches. For one thing as advertised the tourney was supposed to start at 1100, well we kicked off at 1230. Room for 40 players at Treefort games, and 8 showed up to play the first game. Of those 8 there were 3 elder players, 1 necron player, 1 vanilla marine’s player, 2 ork players, and my tyranids. Of all the armies represented that day none of them had very good list builds except for the two ork players and my nids. Everything else was all over the map with no continuity.
The first round I was in was with one of the ork players, 4 Battlewagons and two trucks, the normal Nobz squads and Ghazkull. Nothing too far out of the ordinary and as you can expect he charged straight into my front lines and with his lower initiative, he learned very quickly that that may not have been the very best of ideas. Too little to late as they say, took a massacre victory by beating him in kill points 16 to 4.
The second round was against an Eldar player by the name of Alvin or “Al” for short, but after hearing him talk for about one minute, I called him DOUSHBAG!!! SO the set up is Spearhead with 5 objectives being the game mission. So doushbags first order of business is to decide to keep his whole army hiding behind his one grav tank that is about 12 inches off his table edge but very close to the center line, which brought it VERY close to my two Tyrannofexs. My zoans led the way of course and in the middle of my first turn I had blown up his grav tank, he lost his HQ in the ensuing blast, and destroyed and entire squad of pathfinders that were foolishly in range of my zoans, 9 warp blasts later there was nothing but a smoking crater where his pathfinders used to be, 2+ cover save that doushbag. About this time doushbag started to open his mouth about how my list was illegal cause I had Tervigons in my list that were taken as troop choices and not HQ’s. After showing him the rule in the codex that allowed me to do just that as long as I also took 10 termaguants, he suddenly decided that quitting was the best way to screw me over by his way of thinking, he quit and took his 1 obj and I would take 4 objs and that would be how many points I would get. After a brief explanation with head ref about how much of a DOUSHBAG this guy was I got another massacre victory while he got 0 points for quitting like a girl.
The third and final round found me up against the necron player by a HUGE surprise. Also by this point where we had started with 8 players, we were now down to 4 cause of other doushbags quitting because they did not feel as if they were doing all that good. Well the setup for this game was Dawn of War with victory points being the scenario. He got the first turn and put out his Ctan in the middle of the board, I chose at that time to walk my whole army on turn one since there was no benefit to me to do anything else turn one. He foolishly moved his Ctan right towards my line on his first turn and he found out what 9 zoans can do with their warp lances. His Ctan down turn 1 with a Monolith of his gone after turn 2, he was reeling backwards and decided a gun line would be better than anything else he could muster to take care of the swarm. It took me 4 rounds moving cover to cover to get my Hormagaunts in range to assault but as soon as they closed on my turn 5 his entire army phased out in an eerie glow to quote the necron codex.
Overall another tournament at Treefort with another dominating performance by members of the Columbus Gaming Group, but overall an underwhelming experience at that game store due to the DOUSHBAGS that play at that location. I also had the chance to talk to John who was the store owner of Treefort and expressed to him the reason that we do not take the travel time to play and buy at his store is because of the doushbags he allows to play in his tournaments. My suggestion to him was if not for a viable excuse, if anyone chooses to quit a tournament at his store, then that person will be banned from tournament play at his store. Best way to upgrade his reputation in my book to tell ya the truth. Also if you want an easy win at future events Treefort is the way to go, just keep in mind the fact that doushbags will be run into, and it would be like playing your sisters kids.

Hey CG2 Fans,

Todd here with a talk on why people cry about new codex’s and rules!! Have you surfed the different blogs and forums and seen people complain about “broke” or “overpowered” codex’s? Are you tired of it? Me, well I am frankly sick of it. Who am I you say? I’m your down to earth, shower taking, has a real life, plays to have fun kind of player who is going to tell you how it is!! So here we go…

Imperial Guard

Of course I have to start off with my beloved codex. I started playing IG in 2nd edition. I originally wanted a Blood Angels army since that was the original looking marines out there. Started but hated it, so then I saw IG. Laser guns..check….Tanks check…Flack armor…check! I’m sold! Nothing better to give your best with humans and laser guns vs. Steroid induced super humans! So that’s why I play them, they are the underdog.
So, back to the original discussion. I am sick of players crying about the IG army’s out there. So what if you see 5-10 vehicles out there. Last time I checked it’s the 41st Millennium, I think they dedicated whole planets to produce vehicles. So I would expect to see a Shi@ ton of them! I mean that’s their strength. Look at marine chapters, if you look at the basic Ultra marine load out for the entire chapter, they have a handful of vehicles. Its just so miraculously that you have them all in this one battle force. So IG are not the only Meched -out army’s in the scene right now.

Also the whole vet thing going around. For casually play its fun to mix thing up right. Maybe use some Infantry platoons and stuff. As for tournaments its game on! You bring all you hardest and tough list right. I don’t see Grey knight bringing basic grey knight marines, or space marines taking loads of tactical marines!! I see elites coming out (Deathwing, Grey Knight’s). So why would I bring my weaker troops, instead of veterans with special weapons in them to kill your 3+ guys? Stop crying, I don’t cry when I shoot a squad of marines and watch all but one save their armor. It’s the nature of the beast.

MARINES (all types)

Ok, These guys. As I mentioned above, players are always crying about SPAM with IG and other armies. You Marine players are the most guilty of this. Space Wolves, Vanilla marines (Salamander lists) Blood Angels (JAWABALLS) and so on. How can you cry about this stuff when you are all doing it your selves? Still should people cry about it no. That’s how you make your list, so be it! Keep playing your razor back lists, or your melta/power fist squads and so on. Once again it’s the nature of the tournament beast.
So as for the crowd who cries about the new codex’s being broke, why are you even concerned? I mean yeah some of the rules are tough and advantages obvious (Riflemen dreads in the Grey knight lists). Stop crying and look for a way to destroy the threat. Think Generals from history started crying about why army A has the cool weapons and Army B does not? No they started plotting to get rid of the advantage of these weapons! For example, Scotts fighting the Brits back in the day. Tribes men Vs. trained Men-at-arms. They used what they had to defeat the armored bullies from the south. They did not cry and run to the hills. So all I am saying is find the chink in the armor! Lick your wounds and plot revenge with a better force. How many codex’s have you designed? Hmm, so lay off the writers!


The rest of the Zeno hoards and other stuff fall in as well. Your codex’s will come soon enough. Be patient. Though these older books can still win, I have seen it. Tau can still lay some serious hot lead (or plasma) down on the enemy. I am looking for the fish people true come back next year. Necrons, keep up those shambling hoards. They still have some fight in them as well, they will come for us soon enough. I mean why don’t people cry about 100 boys ruining your day or the swift DE screaming about the battlefield? Oh maybe because that’s the way they are intended to play?


When I talk to someone who never played and shows interest I explain it this way. There is an army for every type of players. Shooty, aggressive, balanced. There is also armies for every style of players, evil, good, alien! Play how you want that army to play, be it fluffy or tournament based, just play! Stop crying because you lose or feel things are “unfair”, remember its all comes down to the dice!! Yes my friends the true equalizer! That and it’s a GAME!!! So let’s stop undermining each other and losing new players due to the DBAGS out there, and just play!! Stop using new people to get your manliness on and destroying . in turn losing them to other games like War machine. Try just playing and laughing as your units do crazy things! Its all about fun. So in closing for all you internet haters out there


Till next time, keep rolling them dice

O, if anyone has cool ideas for a Tau display board for the tourney I am all ears. I have some ideas, but not sure what I gunna do yet.

Hey CG2 fans,

Tankertodd here with some updates about the roaming band known as the "ROAD CREW". As of right now CG2 will be represented at the 2011 NOVA OPEN up in Arlington, VA. This is huge for us here in little old Columbus. In just under a year, our group has really come forward. Hard work has paid off, and we on the road crew won't let CG2 down. So this being said, lets talk about the road crew!!

Todd W., George N. and I talked about hitting the road numerous times during casual gaming. Taking the CG2 banner to other stores and tourneys to meet and spread our glorious name. Local players are great and we find and meet them all the time. Still nothing like hitting the road and roaming into other players territory. This allows us to meet and battle new opponents. You can sit and read people BLOGS and stuff all day.There is not better way than to see whats going on in the hobby than to see it first hand. You never know who or what you will see out there.

The Road Crew also was designed to represent the CG2 in the gaming community. Currently the members are all pretty decent guys and players. There are loads of just DBAG players out there. Players who ruin the fun of a "Game". So those people are not welcomed to join this roaming bad. We want to go out and make friends and contacts to help our community here in Columbus, GA a better one. So the people we are looking for are those players who are just in it to have fun. Yes winning and bringing home some loot is always our aim, but not at the expense of others.

So how do you join the CG2 "ROAD CREW"? First you can't be a DBAG!! You have to purchase the Team shirt at $40 a pop. Now this is sold strictly at cost. Your getting a nice Polo not some Chinese counterfeit. You have to have a Decently painted force. Now, if your going out into the community, how do you spread a good name for CG2 with un-primed models!! And finally, the $$$ to attend the events and help pay for the expenses to get there...hey gas ain't cheap!!

So if you think you want to hit the road with the CG2 road crew, email me at We are looking for additional members to hit up the NOVA OPEN with us this August. Hope to see some of you out there and as always

Tournament after thoughts!!

Hey gang,

Well the tournament is over with and I come back with some experience and hard earned lessons! For those of you just tuning in, Some of CG2's members (Chris (cheater), Todd W., Brian B., Craig and Todd C...that's me) participated in a 2500 point 40K tournament at a place called Giga Bites cafe. Its located in Atlanta, GA and is about two hours away from Columbus, GA. I will get to the store itself at the end of the blog. So here is how the day unfolds.

The day started at 6am when we all met at the HobbyTown parking lot. The drive was quick due to us gabbing away about 40K and other crazy stuff. We arrived about an hour early, even with a pit stop at Duncan Doughnuts (Thanks Todd W.) When we arrived there was already about 6 people waiting outside the store. When the doors finally opened, we quickly had a look over of the tables. the entire event was filled, thanks to Chris filling in the last slot of a last minute drop out.

So the missions, standard NOVA style. Basically you have three objectives (Objectives, KP and quarter halves) and each rotates as the primary, secondary and Tertiary. Though in this event, you can acheivell three objectives instead of stopping at the first objected taken by a player. was I when I read them first. With the missions and players match-ups issued out the battle began.

Round 1: Chaos marines Vs. Mech IG

My opponent was Wll if I remember correctly. Good guy, easy going and fun to play. He ran a mix of Chaos stuff. few termies and oblits. The first round of course is DoW...blah! He got first turn and of course took it. He deployed right up front in the middle. This forced me to deploy on the tables edge. I had very little initial success and he got in my face to quickly. This took away from my vehicles firepower and forced my Vets to get on ground. Even with my marbro and Storm troopers trying to eat his back field, Power armor just kept on working for him. The Chaos gods favoured him and he walked away with a complete victory.

Lesson learned: DoW sucks!

Round 2: Daemons Vs. Mech IG

This battle kind of worried me before it even began. I have played very few daemon army's. he had tons of models and I knew this was going to hurt. Standard deployment and of course The God Emperor did not favor me and he too took 1st turn. With that said he game me the first turn to spare him a round of pain! So turn one was a complete waste for me. he dropped in right on top of me for the most part. Though he did drop his Fiends back more to allow them a chance to get in combat the next turn. So he had 8 total units for his first wave. With eternal warrior, my insta kill weapons lacked their usually kick. I had initial success at killing of some fiend with marbro and killing 4 out of 5 Heralds on chariots. Then he started getting in his units and began spewing his daemon breath, glancing and auto killing my vets. Where is a hell hound that spews Mouthwash? So my valiant armored column was massacred in the rocky valley. He took all three objectives.

lesson learned: Reserve my stuff as well to negate him from dropping on my stuff right away. That and Daemons are just mean!

Round 3: Orks Vs. easy right!....

Ok, this battle I walked in thinking, OK I can do this. I faced plenty of Ork army's. Well Tanner my opponent had other plans. he had a speed freak/stompy list. Heavy with war buggy's (Cool Conversion work) and killa Khans. He also had the Nob Biker squad with Warlord...grrr. So the battle was spearhead and to my surprise....I lost turn one again!!! During this game..I have never seen so many 6's and 5's in my life. guys im not crying or making it up. He did not miss or failed to pen my vehicles once. I’m talking he needs a six to pen..he rolls three. After three turns of watching orks blow my vehicles sky high, I had to ask "can I roll your dice". I scooped up three and rolled, 1-2-1...nope just me LOL. Guys, playing games for 17 years and warhammer for 14 I have never been crushed/rolled poorly like this ever. I’m talking point blank shots missed, 2d6 pen rolls getting double ones. His army swiftly weakened my force. it was not till turn 5 and 6 I started to stall his WAAAGGHH. Khans started to die and his buggies as well. Even 2 out of his three lootas all but died. Though we had the chance to go to turn 7, I was too far weakened to get any points...once again the cadian "Fighting" 69th was crushed.

Lesson Learned: Get Tanners dice!!

So in closing there you have it. I was swept in all three games. I have to say I really did not see that coming. I had a decent amount of primer games prior to the event. I won about 50% of them, and the ones I did lose where very close. All in all, I had a very bad day of gaming. This did not however ruin the event. I had a great time. All three opponents are guys who know their stuff and played very friendly. No complaints at all about them. Remember the whole point of a tourney is to crush not cuddle!! Seeing the weakness of my army I will go back and tweak it for NOVA. Even with the crushing defeat, I will not stray from my boys mounted in their steal steeds. I just love the way my army looks and plays. I have a marine force, but there is nothing better than rolling into battle knowing, my troops are just dudes. Not juiced up dudes...dudes who carry laser guns and ear flak armor. For the Emperor!!< div>

Now for the event as a whole. Guy’s, David and his group are good people. He runs a Top notch establishment, made for gamers by a gamer. They carry all the major games (Warhammer, 40K, Warmahordes, Malua-how-you-spell-it, MTG and Infinity). They have pretty much the entire range of boxes of GW stuff. David treats you as a fellow gamer, not a walking wallet. they also serve food and drinks. Not candy bars and skittles (though they have them to) I’m talking hot and cold sandwiches and fancy coffee drinks. All priced for a gamers budget. so really, you never have to leave the store. I see myself and hopefully CG2 heading back up there for future events and gaming. check them out at and also look on their facebook. Mr. black the TO (writer on belloflostsouls) ran a very smooth event. Was not rushed or heavily micro managed. It had a large event feel with the Local friendly game store atmosphere. They even held a raffle, giving away a Battalion box as 1st prize. The event prizes really where big. $100 for first and 2nd and 3rd getting I think $50. Great event guys, I would drive up again for Giga Bites Cafe's next 40K tourney!

So in closing CG2 represented fairly well. Todd W. tied for 3rd and was awarded $50. Chris and Brian did well and well me, lets say someone has to finish last. On a good note, The Cadian "Fighting" 69th took best painted. Though after much joking by Mr. Black (at my expense) my prize was $50 dollars not to 40K but to warmahordes. Seeing I should try a new game due to utter defeat in 40K! so I walked away from a 40K tourney with some Cygnar trencher commandos LOL!!! We made some good contacts and the CG2 name was spread. All in all, a great day for the "Road Crew". Now our sites are set on NOVA in August. Hope to see you there...until then,

Quick General Update

Hey Guys, Kevin here,

     Figured I'd drop a few things on here just general update stuff. I'll start off by wishin todd and the guys good luck this weekend up at the tournament. Hopefully everyones on their best behavior, nothing good about a long drive to have a miserable time. Lookin forward to some road footage from yall...

Second, Our warmachine groups up to 9 players who have their forces and/or are working on them. We've been getting in some good games, and starter games for the new guys (see ya tomorrow Tom). There is a good chance that a few of us might be playing in a "Steamroller Tournament" (these are privateer presses official events) here within the next month, if we do there will be footage from that.

Lastly, even though I personally maybe through with 40k for the most part I'm still working for you guys to have some events. In works, I've been trying to get the OK from GW for us to host a 'Ard Boyz preliminary round down here, but for some reason GW's not responding back to us. So if you fellas want it blow up their email boxes about the group and the area and we'll see what happens. ALSO, for those of you who don't know the "CAMPUS NERDS" social group on Columbus State University hosts "NERDACON" every year. I've been talking to them about hosting a charity event during "NERDACON" this year. Something that would let us collect food or money to donate to a local food bank or organization that helps out the less fortunate during the holiday season. I've been there, I know how bad they can be, and I think it would be REALLY GOOD pr for the group.

in closing if anyone has any ideas email gets checked regularly. and now the standard closing - check us out on facebook, youtube, and our forum.

Thoughts before I hit the road!!

Hey gang,
Todd here and I was thinking about the upcoming tournament that a few of CG2 are heading up to this weekend. Being this one of the first road trips CG2 has taken, we on”the road crew” are quite excited. Why is this? New players to fight! This though could be a doubled edge sword. Why is this? People in this certain hobby seem to have one of two sides. They are either in it to have fun…or DBAGS!
This player is all about himself. Probably has little to no social skills and was an only child. Conversations start out with Me, mine, my and I. They will approach a new guy and quickly inform him/her that he is the top dog and his army is the best. These players are also bi-polar players. On top of the world if they are up in the game, but becomes a raging maniac when they start to lose. The will quickly start making excuses for their sudden change in luck. Excuses such as, it was the dice, your codex is new, you made a net list and so on and so on. These are the players that will make a 2+ hour drive not worth it. This player ruins events and just discredits the hobby in general.
So how do we spot these players? Listen for loud boasting, or that player who is standing alone! You will most likely spot them right away. This player 9 out of 10 times has poor hygiene. He will have a swagger about him and a judging look on everyone. Also look for this players leaning over a table and either trouble shooting the players on rules or trying to give unwanted advice. Everyone has had someone just eves drop into a friendly game and quickly kill the mood. That’s the DBAG for you!
The in it to have fun player!
This is the player who makes the hobby a hobby! He cares about the whole game experience. The player who does not care if everything is painted or the army has older models. He just wants to play…well to play. Wins are great, ties are just as good and a lose, well leaves a door open for a re-match. This player is interested in your army not as much as his. This player has a good tactical sense but also knows it’s a game of chance. He will never make fun of your list…unless its really stinks. Still then he will help tweak it with you. Never does he take the game personal even against a DBAG! This player makes a 2+ plus hour drive worth it and an event fun! This is the player that needs to be out there in every game.
How do we spot this player? He is always smiling. He shakes your hand at the beginning and end of the game. This player has a clean appearance and has good hygiene. People will take you to him and introduce you. He has a record of good sportsmanship awards..duh! Overall he can and should be everyone.
Simple put, we all need to be this player. Stop trying to act hard gamers. We play with model Soldiers, not sending real ones into battle (military guys excluded). It’s a game, just like Monopoly, Life and scrabble. Intended for entertainment, not personal greed and pride. Nerds jump at any attention and try to make themselves higher and mightier in their realms. Serious, take a step back and remember it’s a hobby, but if you see it as your life…WOW! Ok enough ranting. Hope this helps some people realize what type of player they are, or at least will help get rid of those DBAG players.
Play games, have fun and as always
Keep rolling them dice!!

....Connection Resetablished....begin transmission.....

     Hola, Lordboximus here. Its been a bit since I've posted anything on here, facebook, or youtube. So I figured I'd shoot a lil post up and fill yall in on some comings and goings as of late. First off I've not been posting because my gamer "tick" has been off. I've just not had the urge to play anything over the last few months. Just about the time I feel I'm getting it back, the...hmmm....we'll just call it the GW Fiasco, happened which in turn has really turned me off to the GW side of the hobby. I'm not gonna rant and rave about it, I've done enough of that already. Lets just leave it that my 3000+ points of Flesh Tearers are going up on the block, and with the exception of very few things for my dark eldar and/or orks, I'm done with GW.  SOOOOO....if you are interested in my Flesh tearers just hit me up and we can discuss. On to a different note now..... 

     So with this departure from the GW hobby, I've started looking at other systems that are cheaper, better designed, and more entertaining for a player. The obvious first answer was Warmachine/Hordes. Now we've tried to get into this before but before we really did, it kinda fell by the wayside. That's fine, that was the past. So George and myself got to talking and decided this time we're just gonna take the jump together. So this last week I placed the order for my Protectorate of Menoth force and George's Retribution of Scyra (sp?) force. There are atleast 2 others in the group that seem mildly excited about doing this too :::cough TODD cough RALPH cough:::: damned Hopefully we can get more of the group excited about what is, IMHO a better quality game all around. Also I was introduced to Dystopian Wars up at treefort games a few months back, yet again, another amazing game. So I dropped the dime in George's ear about it, he's checked it out too and looks like in a couple months we have yet another game to introduce to the group. I'm glad that these other companies are producing products that are starting to shine as bright as a others.

     Now all that being said. Starting in the middle to end of this coming week look for a influx of blog and youtube posts from George and myself as we delve into being warmachine noobs. With any luck We'll have product reviews on what we ordered, bat reps from our first games, maybe even some group discussions with the CG2 members who are pumped about it with their first responses. I know alot of these things have been done but they all have been "polished", good but polished. My goal is to show real gamer reactions to picking up new products and systems.

     So just keep an eye out, please comment on our content, leave us suggestions etc. We love to hear from yall.

"SIZZLE IN THE SUMMER" closing thoughts!!

Hey CG2 fans,

TankerTodd here with the closing thoughts on the "Sizzle in the Summer" 40K tournament. Well after just a month of planning and organization, The event has come and gone. Before I get started I would like to thank a few people for helping make this event. George thanks for making the missions packet and Chris for being our PR guy and getting the word out there. We make a good team!

Ok, the tournament, It all started very well. Every player...all 14 that is, showed up on time. Yup, not bad for a small group of players to pull in that many players. I have to mention that we do not have a FLGS. Hobby Town USA provided space for us in the front of their store. They carry a small amount of GW stuff, but it is growing every week. So this is our modified FLGS. Anyway back to the tournament. We had to my surprise a very heavy Chaos show up. Yup notify the Inquisition, Columbus GA are heretics. Even had a necron player as well. So power armor heavy? Yes, imperial power armor? No.

The 1st round kicked off on time, another surprise for us gamers. Missions where simple and to the point. You have a primary, secondary and tertiary. You strive for primary of course but you have two other ways to earn points. Now these objectives would rotate through the tournament. Switching as the primary and secondary and so forth. Though the deployment would change per-battle. For the most part the players did not have any issues. All in all the games kicked off without any major issues. Few rules hick ups but all OK.

The army's looked great....for...the most part. We did have an issue with a "Proxy" army. I will save this for the end. David "the Preacher" won best painted for his Ford Tough themed orcs. Nothing tougher than two 1950's ford racing across the board. Who says all of Terra's ancient technology is locked away by the mechanicus adeptus! He did not win by much though, Todd W. and his nids where close behind. Other mentions are James H.'s Chaos marines and Donald's Necrons. All in all the army's look great.

So as the battlefield became quiet from hours of combat a winner stood amongst the crowd. James H. took 1st as tournament winner. He beat out James G. by a tie breaking VP difference of around 190 points. Players Choice went to Donald, he took not just the $$ loot but the new Golden dreadnought trophy for players choice. So marked the end of CG2's second event. You can watch more tournament action on our YouTube channel. Also on the FaceBook we have pics of the days events. So where does CG2 want to go with our events.....?

So the future.. Since this being my second run at organizing an event, I have learned allot. the biggest being, we have a HUGE gamer base here in Columbus, GA. besides the 14 players we had in our tournament (beating out any game store within an hours drive here in Southern GA) we still had over 15 people stop in and check out the action...WHO PLAY!!! Also not to mention CG2 group members who could not make it. That puts us way over 30 possible players. So what does this all mean?? Bigger venues/events and more professional settings. If we can get 30 players for a tournament, we can get bigger space. How does this happen? You, you the fan base in Columbus, GA and surrounding areas need to push for this. We can do it. There are plenty of huge venue space to hold a large event such as this. The more people, the more $$ we generate to rent space. Remember CG2 does not make or save any $$. We put everything into the events. So the gears are turning, look to the near future for something of this scale.

Second, a more serious approach to the tournaments. This being said, these piece mealed/mixed matched "PROXY" armies are not going to be accepted anymore at any CG2 event. Players want to enter a tournament to meet new people, play interesting army's and enjoy a great gaming experience. This is destroyed when someone shows up with a armys that includes 2 different army ranges of GW stuff, Models from another "Machine" type game and missing most arms and legs. Now I understand, the hobby is time consuming and $$ sucking, but a line must be drawn. In our rules we allow proxy's but to a set extent. You want to use an Ork warbose as something esle OK, or a model in place for a character who does not have a figure I got it, but a Raider as a Rhino...? Wyches as GK termies? Since we have a larger fan base then we thought, we are no longer hurting for players. For sake of other players and CG2's reputation as a serious game group, we will no longer allow army's like this in our events..period!. So as the event organizer for this last tournament, I apologize to all the players for this. I ensure you our quality control with be better.

So look for bigger and better events from CG2. Spread the word, lets get our names out to other games stores and groups. heck lets get a team and start hitting the road to smash them on their turf!!!! Thanks again for every ones help and support. Until the next event...keep rolling them dice!!!

Monastery Board...the begginings

Ok guys,

Here is the humble beginnings. Dedicated myself by purchasing the wood and other materials need to make the basic layout. My second Amazon shipment was mailed today, so in a few days will have pretty much everything I need to finish the board. Attached are a few pics. Notice the sheer size of the buildings on this project. I hope to see some in building fighting with the little dudes men. The outline of the river has been drawn out. Woodland scenic makes awesome water effect. Its will be a generic blue river with some vegetation on the banks.Once complete it will look like a untouched Monastery world...ripe for bloodshed. More to come

Monastery Board

Hey Gang,

Todd here with info on the new CG2 board I'm building for the tournament. Its a Monastery board complete with built in river. I wanted something new for our upcoming 4 June Tournament at Hobby Town USA here in Columbus, GA. Its going to be based generic grass with ash grey gravel, typical base for my boards. I have started on building a few things but will take some pics next week when I get back from a "Field" trip.
Until then imagine a river about 6 inches wide snaking across the left flank of the board, spanned by a long iron bridge. On the left you will have two separate massive 1foot by 4 inch flats with Barracks for the monastery personnel. These will be built out of the Pegasus hobby Gothic buildings. As you go right across the bridge you will have the ruined Aquila from GW based. This will be in front a massive 2 foot by 2 foot Imperial Temple. It will be based off the French Gothic style Cathedrals. Inside I am putting the Marine statue from the GW kit. Also will be adding a ruined library. Why ruined...well the warp is fickle and those who try and learn its secrets well can blow up. will have small bits of darkened paper to add to the effect.
All in all, I think it will come out looking great. It will have loads of line of sight blocking terrain. huge building to fight inside (a Land Raider can fit in the barracks and the temple). The river will be a nice effect and my first attempt at making one. So once I get started I will take some pics and update the blog. Hope you all come to the tournament and play a game on it.

Till then

"Garage Night"

Hey CG2 fans, Wow its been awhile since we have posted. Due to the annoyance know as "Real Life" things slowed down very much for CG2. Everyone in the group was busy with something in their lives. Still the group rallied together for "Game Night". Hosted at my place, we had 9 members show up. Even had some new faces. CG2 welcomes Ralph to the ranks. All in all, we played from the afternoon until the wee hours of the night. Everyone at least got two games in. Sorry for the lack of pics or vids, we will have to jump on that next time. The Grey Knights made an appearance with their new codex. Kevin and Chris battled it out with a Flesh tears vs Grey Knight battle. It was a bloody affair but neither force could secure victory. David and myself played a foot slogger IG army against my mech IG. Was a good game, but the lowly legs of the ground pounders could not hold up against "Mech Furry". CG2 is not dead for those wondering. There is a map based campaign in the works. Even early whispers of getting a team together for next years Adapticon echoed through the conversations. Things are being planned and we are getting more members all the time. So keep looking at the Blog and the YouTube site. Until next time.... Tankertodd

We managed to get my stompa completely build, magnatized, and the lifta droppa built. I got the new blood angels dread kit assembled as the librarian dread and kitbashed the iron clad for the parts needed to make a second Dco dread for my flesh tearers.

Rumble on the river!!

Hey Gamers,

Tankertodd here from CG2. Wow what a great turn out for the Columbus Gaming Group's first official event, "The Rumble On The River". It all started at 8a.m. with Kevin, George, myself and our host Ozz, setting up all five boards. The small Club House activity center was a perfect place to throw the event. It had plenty of room for the five tables and even room for us to set up folding tables for storage space.So there was no clutter during the games. The players arrived on time as well, surprisingly for gamers. Allot of new faces and some old enemy's as well. Overall we had a great mix of army's and play styles. Kevin was surprised to see another Dark Eldar force played. Overall we had

1. Kevin- Dark Eldar
2. Todd- IG
3. Charles- Deathwind/Ravenwing
4. Tom- Crimson fists
5. David- IG
6. Craig- Space Marines
7. Nick- Dark Eldar
8. James- Chaos
9. James- Daemons
10. Coty- Chaos

So as you can see we had a nice mix. The rounds kicked off and there was smooth game play through out the tournament.Our ref, George, was quick to settle all rules disputes that did arrive. At the end three champions arose. Best painted went to Kevin with his Dark Eldar. Players choice, which was picked by the players, was Todd. Overall winner of the 1st Annual "ROTR" was David and his blob Imperial Guard. We also had an extra purity seal and George awarded Tom for his awesome Dreadnought model. Prizes consisted of $50 gift card to the overall winner, $25 to best painted and players choice. Prize support was sponsored by Hobby Town USA in Columbus,GA. They really helped us out allot. So stop in and check out their growing Warhammer/40K selection.
All in all it went off surprisingly well. Very organized if I don't say for myself for three people who never did anything like this. Next time we can only get bigger and better. For those who came and played, thank you for making the event fun and challenging. To those who could not make it,CG2 will be hosting more events in the future so keep checking the Blog and YouTube. Hope to see you all in the 41st millennium
