Welcome back!  Sorry for the lack of posts recently, I’ve been playing a ton of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 lately and have had a tough time tearing myself away long enough to write anything worth reading.  On that note, I have noticed some striking similarities between 40k and Call of Duty that I may have to devote a separate article to. If, you know, I can stop playing long enough to write it.

In the meantime, the Da Boyz GT has come and gone.  This year, the Da Boyz GT featured no comp scoring.  That’s unusual for the event, which is notorious for its comp scores.  I believe going to no-comp was the right call, given the relative infancy of 6th edition.  The TOs were proven correct when despite the lack of comp scores, a wide variety of lists showed up on the top tables.  The top 10 overall finishers included: GK/IG, Daemons, Eldar/Tau, Chaos Space Marines, Eldar, IG, Tyranids, and Necrons.  When the dust settled, Andrew Gonyo had pulled down yet another 6th edition GT win with a Grey Knight/IG army.  Today we’ve got the army lists of the Da Boyz GT 2012 Best Overall winner Andrew Gonyo and 2nd Overall / Best General Ben Mohile for your viewing pleasure.  Enjoy!

So NOVA 2012 was an amazing success and drew hundreds of players across several very well-received events.  It was so well received, apparently, that despite the fact that it has been over for a couple of months now, we’re still getting a bunch of requests by email (and PMs on dakka) to post more NOVA lists and our impressions.  Well, we’re your rules lawyers, and we’re here to deliver what you want.  So today we’ve got three more nova lists for your viewing pleasure.  We’ll call this set “liststyles of the rich and e-famous”.  Today we’re bringing you the NOVA Open 2012 lists of well-known 40k bloggers Stelek (from Yes The Truth Hurts), Danny Internets (from Bald and Screaming), and Chumbalaya (from Blackjack and Hookers).  Enjoy!

For a while now I’ve been hesitating to do a “Law Reviews” article on BeakyCon because there’s been a lot of internet drama surrounding the event.  I’m certainly not interested in turning The Rules Lawyers into a 40k drama blog, I’ll leave that to people like Stelek and TastyTaste who do the job with aplomb (and because tone is hard to gauge on the internet, this is meant as a sincere compliment to the aforementioned bloggers).  But BeakyCon is a growing tournament featuring a number of competitive players from around the country and competitive armies, so hopefully our readers can benefit from a bit of commentary and analysis on the winning lists.  Today for your viewing pleasure we’ve got the army lists of BeakyCon GT winner Teddy Woody and runner-up Alex Simon.

The results are in from the NOVA 2012 GT and Tony Kopach has pulled out another undefeated NOVA GT tournament win.  If you haven’t seen the spectacular final game between Tony and runner up Nick Nanavati, you should absolutely go and watch it.  You can catch the 11th Company’s recording here.  This was an amazingly close, well-played match between two great players.  What was even more interesting about it, though, was the nature of the armies on the table.  In a huge change from what we saw in 5th, the finals featured a knock-down, drag-out slugfest between two all-foot armies.  Tony ran Space wolves with guard allies, and Nick ran foot daemons that featured the new White Dwarf Updated screamers and flamers heavily.   In this, the first part of our NOVA 2012 review and recap, we’ve got the army lists of 2012 GT finalists Tony Kopach and Nick Nanavati for your viewing pleasure.
