Kebek III

August 19, 2013

So, I was poking around on the Interwebs a few days ago, and I found a blurb on some site that pointed me to another site, and so on... you know how it is when you're browsing...  Anyway, I ended up on a page about Team Kebek at Adepticon 2013.

This year, they put together an army/display that combined Necrons and Tau, and it is very creepy-cool.  My first impressions went from "ho-hum," to "Oh, that's kinda neat," then to "holy crap, that's freakin' awesome."   The army has a Borg-kinda feel to it, and the team even included a comic to tie all the fluff together.  You have to see this. 

Just an FYI, I like to think that we are not alone in the universe, but the notion of a Borg-like race, or even Necrons somewhere out there, assimilating other races, scares the living hell out of me.  This army connects me to that fear a little, and yeah, it gives me the creeps a little  --but I like it.  Particularly in this case, it is very well done.

You can find more pictures of the army here, and the comic here.  The team also has some cool photos from their previous Adepticon entries (IG and Orks).

I must admit, I did not find the site by accident, but I was unable to re-trace my steps in order to properly acknowledge the person or link that led me to it.  So if you happen to have seen the same blurb that pointed me there on BoLS or somewhere else, or if you happen to be the one who posted it, please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due.  And thank you.

Thank you too, Team Kebek.  This project is exceptional work.

I had a thing about them on my blog for a while. This army was frickin cool. I got to see it in person and the guys even let pick up and inspect their models. The guys from Quebec come to adepticon every year with an insane army and they're cool guys too. They won best army in the team tournament.

Thanks Tim, and love your blogs. Tau of War has been one of my favorites since I started gaming, and 3++ is the new black has recently been added to my list. Thanks for following us.

Do you know if they played this army, was it as an allied army or was it just a display? Curious.

It was a team tournament army. Which is why it has both Tau and Necrons. The way the Team Tournament works at Adepticon is you get 4 1,000 point lists from any codex, but since you get extra points for theme, most people try to make it sensical. They played it. I don't think they did too well, they were using the old Tau codex. But who cares when your army looks like this!?!?!

Hi Tim, Hu Jin Tau,

Glad you guys like the army. A friend pointed me here. Not sure if you're looking for the team who made the army or for the person who posted it on BoLS. I can't help with the latter, but I'm one of the former if you have any questions.

You can find a few more pics (I think) and the comic by visiting jfdubeau.com

Cheers,
