So by now most people should have theirs lists in, flights and accommodation booked where appropriate, plans to get from the airport to the Matilda and so on and so forth. So there is little left to do other then show up oh yeah and finishing painting your army.
Ok so who is willing to share their lists. (and there painting progress)
I got bored of playing with my Death Guard concept list and subsequently it still hasn't even begun to get painted. So since I have to paint an entire army any way it may as well be a new one. I noticed a few weeks ago a number of Assault Marine heavy Blood Angels Lists popping up on the list forums and comments about how it was impossible to do a really comp friendly one and I decided to have a crack at it. I came up with a 1750 point list that I was really happy with. Of course this is a 2000pt event and some players may not like it if I show up with only 1750 points. So I had to add something, I ended up settling on Dev Squad in a Drop pod (in hindsight I may have been better off just playing 1750 points)
So without further rambling here is my list for Liber 08
Drop Pod Down!
During a routine training operation a Drop Pod containing 5 novice “Scouts” has taken weapons fire and crashed landed several hundred kilometers off course. Unwilling to leave the scouts behind, and unsure what size the enemy presence is, a force comprising off half the 8th Reserve Company has been mobilized to attempt a rescue. With Limited Drop Pods available the force is being deployed via Thunderhawks causing a delay. A Squad from the 9th Company has volunteered to take the one available Drop Pod immediately, attend to any injuries and set up a defensive perimeter with their heavy weapons until the 8th Company force can arrive.
The Rescue force consists of Squads III, IV, V, VII and VIII and is lead by Captain Nalen Taren, also accompanying them are five “Death Company”. The main Force comprises of the Captain and Squads III, IV and V (along with the Death Company) equipped with Jump Packs to deploy directly from the Thunderhawks once they break atmosphere. Squad VIII is to act as a support unit, crewing three Attack Bikes and two Land Speeders. The Land Speeders also deploying once the Thunderhawks enter the atmosphere, with the Attack Bikes racing out once they touch down. Squad VII is to act as reserves and is split into two squads. One of them including Veteran Sergeant Nysril, are mounted on Bikes and the other equipped with Jump Packs. Both will hang back unless needed or swoop in to provide medical aid and extraction to the downed Scouts once the position has been secured.
Squad III from the 9th Company has bravely volunteered to go in immediately via Drop Pod. It is there job to stabilize any injuries and set up a defensive perimeter. Unsure of what, if anything, they will be facing they are taking a Missile Launcher and two Heavy Bolters.
Will they be able to hold out long enough and safely extract the Scouts, or will many Battle Brothers be lost in the attempt. There is only one way to find out, let’s play the game.
Captain Nalen Taren - Jump Pack, Pair of Lightning Claws and Meltabombs

I will be using a crashed Drop Pod with a seriously injured scout still inside as my 60mm objective and 4 lightly injured scouts as my 40mm objectives. Commander Dante will be my Hero.
So there it is, hopefully the 9th Co. Squad doesn't stick out too much
Now I just have to paint it all.
So what are other people bringing.
