500 Point List

Wow! I'm just in a posting frenzy lately.

ASs most of you know, I am a complete noob when it comes to actually playing 40K. Recently, though, I found someone locallyt (Dallas, Texas) who has deigned to teach the Noob the finer points of the game.

Our first session is Wednesday, and it's going to be a 500 point game.

I have a pretty good collection of Ultramarines (about 3000 points worth but about 1000 painted)

Anyone have any tips for a good learners 500 point list? Don't worry about thinking about what I've got because I probably have it somewhere.

What's a good learning list for your NOOB to take with him?

Thanks in advance for any tips, guys!

Barter Bucket?

I know I tend to swipe stuff from other blogs, but what do you guys think of having a barter bucket on the NOOB blog?

Simple concept: email me with what you need and what you have to trade, and I'll organize getting the fine folks together. No selling, just trading. More of the community helping out the community.

Yea or nay?

To Glue or Not to glue

Just finished building a new Space Marine Predator tank (It's still just primed. I'll post it when it's painted)

Here's my question: should I glue the turret down or not? I like the idea of having a moving turret, but the damn thing keeps following off.

For those of you with more experience than me: to glue or not?

Any help will be appreciated, for sure.

And don't forget to sign up for the "Pay it Forward" contest below.

Free "Pay it Forward" Giveaway

OK, OK, this is inspired by Santa Cruz Warhammer, and I'll use the same qualifiers as he does.

1. Post a comment with the name of your blog

2. Have a "pay it forward" giveaway of your own.

3. Follow my Blog

4. Leave a contact email so I can alert the winner.

Simple as that.

I'll leave this open until the 28th of April and then we'll draw a winner.

What's the prize, you ask? It's my Forgeworld Venerable Dread you can see a couple of posts down. I'll strip it and ship it to whomever wins.

No takers??? I said I'd strip it. I wouldn't want to curse someone else with that abomination....
