Tutorials

I realize our posts may be sporadic and random, and sometimes far between, so I thought of something cool that may be less of the typical "check out the cool stuff I did" and more helpful to anyone that routinely checks out the blog. Every Tuesday, I will do my absolute best to post a painting tutorial. It may not necessarily be something I made, but I will most definitely give credit where it is due, and I won't simply visit other blogs and steal their ideas. Instead, I will be cruising random forumns, and finding tutorials that most catch my eye, as well as creating tutorials that follow the projects I am doing if I think they would be beneficial. Feel free to send me an email if there is a specific tutorial you would like but can't seem to find (as long as it is painting related). I can then either try searching for it myself, find someone to make one, or make it myself! Hopefully this will lead to more days set for specific ideas in the future, and an overall more structured and reliable blog.
Also, tomorrow Jake and I will be involved in a tournament at a local game store. The point cap is 1850, he with his Khorne and me with my Blood Angels. I'm not sure what he is taking in his army, but my list is as follows:

HQ:
Dante

Elites:
Two Sanguinary Priests with jump packs and melta bombs (attatched to assault squads)

Troops:
10x Assault Marines - 2 meltas, sergeant with power fist and infernus pistol
10x Assault Marines - 2 flamers, sergeant with power fist and infernus pistol
5x Death Company - 2 power weapons, infernus pistol, power fist
-Lemartes
5x Sanguinary Guard - power fist, 2 infernus pistols, chapter banner
5x Scouts - sniper rifles, missile launcher, camo cloaks

Fast Attack:
2 Baal Predators - heavy bolters and autocannons

1st place - 90$ store credit
2nd place - 60$ store credit
3rd place - 30$ store credit

Not sure of my strategy yet, but I will be sure to give you guys a run down tomorrow night. This list got some pretty negative feedback on some forumns, people saying to take a librarian vs Dante, honor guard vs Sanguinary Guard, blah blah blah. Sometimes you have to go with what you like model wise and rules wise, and not what the latest cookie cutter list is. We'll see if I am proven right or miserably wrong tomorrow :P

Let me know what you guys think about the tutorials idea, and definitely shoot me an email if you have a tutorial request, or even one to contribute. Sorry for the wall of text and no pictures...this should make up for it
Cheers
