Quick grab bag post:
First of all, wanted to pass on that the 11th Company podcast will be doing streaming coverage of the Nova open 40K tournament.
Next week, the 11th Company will be live video broadcasting the top tables at the Nova Open starting next week Thursday roughly at 4PM Eastern time.
We will have the players wear wireless mics, so you can hear their discussions during their game. We will have between game interviews with various attendees and guests, and have the channel open for players wanting to broadcast their game live before and after the tournaments during open gaming.
Please join us in the chat room while watching the broadcasts live Thursday August 30th - Sunday September 2nd, or catch the archived broadcasts after the event. We would greatly appreciate it if you shared the above information on your blog/podcast/forums or shared with your friends.
Second, I got two games in with the Space Sharks on Sunday for the local 40K league. The assault marines had been pretty lackluster, so I switched them out for one of the Terminator squads. My wife had the camera, so no pictures unfortunately. First game was against Necrons playing Relic, and I managed to get a victory. Second game against Dark Eldar/Eldar resulted in a loss. Three objectives, two on his side of the table, short edge deployment. I had to come to him, but my firepower failed to convert into kills, and he had more than enough of his own to whittle me down.
