Knee Slider

Haven't been playing a lot lately, largely due to life. Other people's lives, actually, as I don't have a life of my own. However, I was able to get in a game of Guild Ball this past week, against a guy I haven't played since my Malifaux days. Honestly, I'm not sure I ever played him or he just played in my events. Either way, he agreed to give me a game. He used his Morticians, since Engineers are over powered, and they were painted a bit. I, of course, played Masons. I had picked up Chisel forever ago, because she is awesome, and I didn't think I was going to be able to get a scene going at HT, and I wanted her. I also, more recently, picked up the Kick Off starter. It is cheaper, and I just can't let dreams die, no matter how far fetched. Well, I originally wanted to join the group at Rogue's Roost on days when the KoGT group flakes(there are only two left besides me). However, after trying to get a game in there, I found those guys to be obscenely unpleasant. Dreams are for loser anyway. But I can't let mine go, so, having a free week night, I put the Facebook call out. And low and behold, Haunted has a Wednesday night Guild Ball night. It isn't super active, but I only needed one player, and blammo, a game.

I played games!

So, after a couple weekends out of town and life and such things, I was able to get in not one, but two games of X-Wing over the past weekend. I ran basically the same list. I played Paul both times, and I managed some wins on top.

False start and a face plant

As I have mentioned, GW has a Blood Bowl League going on. So far, my LGS can't get the info to put in games, but I am still playing. When I get some games posted, I will tag my league site on here. Anyway, the Saturday before last I started a game versus Paul's Orc Island Raiders. We only managed to get in two turns before I had to run grab my kids. When I returned, one of them threw up, so that was that game. We did meet up on Thursday for a game, and I will get into that after the break. I also ran a X-Wing tournament last Saturday. Well, "ran" is probably the wrong word. It was more of get off work early, race over, set up tables, wait for a while, clean up tables, go home. Yep, nobody showed. It was super exciting.
Well, anyway, onto the game that was exciting.

A Weekend of Space and Field

Well, I didn't end up going to Colorado Winter Invasion 2017. Partly I was sick, partly they had even numbers, and partly I just wussed. I was not idle, however. Instead, after sleep in quite late, I headed to Hobby Town and played Paul three games of X-Wing. Then, after more sleep, I ran a build your Blood Bowl team event at Hobby Town on Sunday.

Arms build up

So, I am preparing for an invasion, a winter invasion. In a couple of weeks, I will be headed to Winter Invasion 2017. It will be a 999point Dropzone Commander three round tournament. I have never done a Dropzone tournament, so it should be interesting. As such, I figured I should probably get a few games of DzC in before the event and hopefully come up with a decent list.

Two by two by two by two.... And Dropfleet

As has been the standard for a while, on the Saturdays that I don't have my kids, after hours we throw down a game of Firefly. Well, this past week was no different. However, what was strikingly out of the ordinary was how often I drew the reshuffle Misbehave card. During the game, we saw it come up 6 or 7 times, of those, I drew it 5 times. Suffice it to say that this game was mildly frustrating. Not in a bad way, I just couldn't get through. However I did manage to get some Dropfleet games in, both on Saturday and during the week.And after the break I will tell you how those went.

New Year's resolution: post more

Well, 2016 was rather light on posts. Between school and life, I just haven't got anything posted. I HAVE played games, though my hobby progress has slowed. My current games of choice are AOS and the new Dropfleet Commander. I recently purchased some yhetee, but beyond that my ogres have stalled. Tomb Kings are just more versatile and thus more fun. I have also been playing Dropzone, since my kids got starters for Christmas.
Anyway, I'm just going to do a picture dump of recent games.
