The Jawaballs Video of the Month!

Bolscon hype begins!

Love em or hate em, they ran a great event last year! Jwolf and the rest of the BOLS guys got it right. Jwolf dropped the challenge, and we answered the call. Fritz's Eldar got smacked around like a red headed step child stealing his new mommies cookies, and Jwolf barely escaped the wrath of the Blood Angels through Zen like manipulation of the scatter dice. I still don't know how he managed to wrap that blast template around terrain, miss all of his own troops, and kill Dante who was out of LoS. The tournament was huge fun, the prize support was top notch, and the venue was beautiful! This year, it will be even bigger. Be looking for more info soon.

Jawaballs and Fritz will be making their trek out to Austin once again for another long weekend of dice, suds and Goatboy. But this year, Fritz and I are part of the show! We are going to be spearheading a massive apocalypse grudge match on Thursday night I believe. It is time for Fritz to pay the piper. He beat on me for years as I was learning to play the game, now I am the master and he is the learner. On one side, the Xenos Eldar scum Fritz will be trying to gather up all the cheeze, runes and jetbikes he can find, while on the other side I will be leading the charge of Red imperial armor. It is my hope to rally up 40000 points of Space Marines and Imperial Guard led by Lord Dante and the Glorious Blood Angels.

Jwolf and BigRed have offered to let us dip our fingers into the BOLS store of models for all to use, and they are offering up nice prize support! It should be a match like none other!

So stay tuned for more info and start preparing for war!

On a related note, I have not been following the beef between BOLS writers and Stellek. I prefer not to take part in those sorts of things, but I do know that the boys have dropped a challenge for Stellek to come to Bolscon and throw some dice! I know Stellek has his reasons for not coming, but I personally think that it would be great for every one. We all want to see the battle. It is like Ali-Forman, Optimus-Megatron, Starbuck-Apollo and Tom-Jerry all thrown into one! How could that be a bad thing? I for one would love to see these two stand across the table from each other, shake hands, beat the crap out of each other, then have a beer and laugh. So I hope Stellek can figure out a way to make it to Austin this year! I would not mind meeting him myself. I also would not mind Stellek being my doubles partner! How bout it man?

It would be really cool if you could set up some form of live broadcast or event during your attendance of BOLScon, Jawa. I'd like to see a panel discussion with you, Fritz, Jwolf, Red, and Goatboy (I'm probably leaving someone out...)- maybe about the state of the game, or the state of 5th edition, tactics, competitive sportsmanship, etc. I realize an event of this nature would be daunting, but it would be really cool for the guys and gals that won't have the opportunity to make the pilgrimage to BOLSCON this year.
Perhaps if you convince Stellek to attend, he would be a fun addition to that mix.

At the very least, if you manage the time for a rematch with Jwolf, don't forget to hit record at the start!

jawaballs said...

That is a fantastic idea, and Im sure we can make that happen on Sunday night after it's all over. I can use my laptop to broadcast it to ustream.tv. I will definitely get a rematch vs Jwolf in, though with the newness of the BA dex, I don't know how confident I will be. It will be some time before I will put a list on the table I feel that I can break face with.

It would be cool if Stellek could bury the hatchet and make it out there, but after reading some of the posts on YTTH, I doubt that will happen! Maybe we will get Fritz to play a Stellek list in the tournament and see what happens!

Michael said...

If you need a doubles partner Jawa, I am game. I'd love to pair our Blood Angels in the name of Sanguinius!

I don't see Stelek going to BOLScon. He has little to no motivation I think, and hte circumstances are abnormal to say the least. I'd love to see it happen, and even meet the guy, but I don't think it is in the stars.

That said, I am so pumped to go to BOLScon. My first time at a big 40k event should be a good time. I'm anxious to meet all the other bloggers out there. Gonna be a great weekend!

And I'm serious about the doubles. I'm sure you have loads of buddies to team up with, but if you want someone next to you that bleeds "blood angels red" like you do, then let me know.

Thomas aka Goatboy said...

I will be neat to see everyone there too. I will probably have my Goat Angels done by then (most likely in the next month and a half) and ready to throw down. As well as the Space goats haha.

I should be running some events but I am sure I can get away to play the team tournament. At least we both get to go to Las Vegas haha.

jawaballs said...

Goatboy man, you are my partner. Goat angels and Jawa angels. I just got a couple dozen jawa figures to use the heads! What a riot!

Jwolf said...

Excellent. And the search for the pink tube tops in girls extra tiny begins.

@JWolf:

Here ya go!

Is this Apoc game going to be just SM and Eldar? That'd be incredible, I'd love a pile of pics.

Damn...

Fritz, Jawa, Goat & Stelek.
That would be an awsome meet and greet. In terms of strategy I would love to see Fritz' Null Deployement vs Stelek's truthfully hurtfull lists.

I believe that each of you guys contribute to the 40K community in a different but insightfull way. And think the mudfights should be left in the hands of hot bikini babes.

Besides me, you all got some fans in Amsterdam. Bummer I will not be making it over the great pond.

Nevertheless, good luck and enjoy,

David

I think hoping for Stelek is a stretch, he's made it quite clear he is not leaving Utah until he sorts his life out.

But it would be a site to see. The top 40k "celebs" all in one place. Lol

Oh and Fritz playing a Stelek would be brutal in my opinion. He has already proved his tactical prowess with not-so-great lists, be cool to see what he can do with something optimized.

lastofthedaydreams said...

Yeah...

but I believe you can fill in the 'he' part with both names; Stelek & Fritz...

I think both have some skills with the plastics.
Perhaps they should team up against the Jawa & Goat Angels.

That would be something to look forward to.

Fritz said...

I would love to team up with Stelek to go up against the Space Goats and Jawa Angels. With his mojo and my moxie we would be unstoppable!

Friday night Eldar Vs. Marines to finally settle the debate is shaping up, I expect the BOLS crew will have more details as we get closer. Broadcasting the event would be sweet, and 100% possible- the hotel had wireless last year...

jawaballs said...

We are aiming for Eldar vs Marines. But of course we don't want people to be left out if we can help it.

Fritz said...

The Eldar will accept all help in their struggle against the Mon-Kei!

Stelek said...

Howdy!

It helps if you point these things out to me. ;)

I put a reply in on ze blog.

http://www.yesthetruthhurts.com/2010/04/new-friends.html

Yes, if the wife and the finances say I can.

I can play just about any army really. Triforce Necrons are about all I can't play lol.

jawaballs said...

Well me and Goatboy decided today that we will team up. But Fritz is down with joining forces with you Stelek. I was gonna go link you up on your blog tomorrow. :)

Stelek said...

But...Fritz plays Eldar. That means I have to play Tau, so we can have EVERYTHING. Except power weapons on good units in every slot along with cheap transports and and...stupid Marines.

Does this mean I get to play the Goat again? I sense a disturbance in the force, he's not using crappy Chaos...oh, he IS, it's just called Puppy Chaos now. Hmm...stupid Marines. =|

jawaballs said...

Fritz has gone bugs!

lastofthedaydreams said...

Awsome sauce...

Bring on the plastic pain!

Stelek said...

Fritz is playing bugs?

So...definitely Tau then. lol

Oh and it's Stelek, Jawa. :p

Chumbalaya said...

Dawww

Group hug :3

Rob Baer (MBG) said...

I want to see Stelek play Marc Parker again.

Michael said...

Oh wow, this is legit.

I can't wait to see this throwdown.

And Fritz should use Eldar imo, it's his iconic army.

Fritz not using Eldar is like Jawa not playing Blood Angels.

Can't wait to see it.

Bigred said...

Dammit, now I'm gonna have to come up with another snappy "Rumble in the Jungle" poster for this one....

My work never ends...
