SmogCon 2016 Prep and Plan

SmogConTime is drawing near for this year’s SmogCon, and I need to prepare. I am not playing in any competitive event, just intending to prowl the Iron Arena hall accumulating points (and points mean prizes!).

Gaining points is done by playing games (You don’t even have to win!), though you get more points for playing fully painted and in a Theme Force. Last year, despite taking pretty much my entire Khador force, I only really played a pVlad Conquest and Berserker spam list. This was a rather fun, quick and easy list to play, but thought I should try harder for this year. That in mind, the aim is to have a couple of 50pt lists to give me some variety, and if I manage to get them all painted in time, a couple of 35pt lists too. All of these manage to hit their Theme Force Tier 4 requirements πŸ™‚ As you can see, there is a fair bit of overlap between lists to help with the painting requirement. Currently, I have to paint 22 small bases, and 9 large bases for the 50pt lists, and a further 7 small bases, and 9 large bases for the 35pt lists. Wish me luck!
