We are the champions!

Well, I am. I managed to get on my final league game before all hell and stupidity broke loose. I would still like to get in a game against Paul, just to seal the deal. I also think a rematch versus Dave and Mike S should be in order, now that they have a better grasp of the game. Well, Dave the game, and Mike S impetuous.

Hobbit with a Ray Gun

I may actually be good at this. I have finished Ricard, excepting his base. I had just set out to paint him to a high tabletop level, but I think he came out more. I was originally thinking that I would just paint the guns in a ode to Eldar theme, but then my made up "Hobbit with a Raygun" song got stuck in my head, and it was shiny all the way. I hope to field him tomorrow, so I will let you all know how that goes, but right now I need to head to work, so outs.

Inquisimunda continues

A quick blip of my "finished" Inquisimunda models for Ricard's and The Duke's hunting rigs, plus The Doctor. Ricard went way easier than I had anticipated. He basically just fell into place, and I am happy where he landed. I kept the original head. It is another "not enclosed power armor" model for my crew, but I liked the dynamics of where and how he is looking. I am still hoping to get them on the table this weekend, and the remaining two models are ordered and should be on their way.

A gameless Saturday

The Duke

So, no games played this last Saturday, very sad day. However, Patrick and I did roll up the experience and skills of our Inquisimunda crews. Most of my rolls were contrary to the models particular role, i.e. I have a very combat centric crew, which is strange since their equipment is very shooting centric. Ah, the well. It should be fun. I did roll plenty of wounds and toughness, so I should be able to weather at least some incoming attacks, which is a fear, since my crew is so limited on equipment and replenishing numbers. Also, as you can see above, I have made progress on The Duke. I have found him a head and legs and begun sculpting. It is a slow process for me, since I tend to sculpt something, then put my finger in it while I sculpt something else. Thus, I am basically sculpting, let harden for a day, sculpt something else. Not the fastest process, but hopefully will lead to fewer mess ups.

I have also picked the models for the rest of my crew:

Lady Anastasia

Daimyo YuQing

Regent Ricard

As far as sculpting for the remainder of the crew, Ricard will definitely take the most, and may receive a head swap. Ko Dali to Lady Anastasia will require turning head tentacles into hair, but little else. The Daimyo may get a bit added for the mirror shield, but that is likely all he will have done. I am fairly excited about the whole shebang, and hopefully will take The Duke and Ricard down this Saturday and proxy the other two for a game of Inquisimunda. I also will need to get in my final game for the Infinity league, which will come first, of course.

Well, that is all on this front, catch you all later this week, when I, hopefully, have a further update for my Inquisimunda crew.

Complex Progression

It has been a while, but I finally figured out the walls of my Complex board. I went with a white hexagon pattern over grey and off white. I think it turned out really well. However, I am now stuck on what to do for the floor. Also, I have to figure out a transition between the floor and wall, because the straight jump isn't working. Also, it would give me more strength to hold the walls on. Well, back to the grind, I have 10 boards with finished walls, the hard ones are left. I hope to update with some progress soon.
If anyone has any ideas for the floor, please drop them in the comments, thanks.

On a roll, right over Pan O

I played my fifth game for the Infinity League on Saturday versus Shane's Pan O. I had been worrying about this game all week. I was also excited about it. Pan O has been the hardest foe for me to crack, and my previous two games versus Shane were hard and close. I expected this game to be a tough fight, and I knew that even if I lost, I had to get high points to hold onto second, or I would likely end up in fifth or worse. To top things off, I am facing a Pan O TAG from across the table.

Mission Completion: Infinity

I have finally finished my 300 points of Infinity. The only Infinity models I have left are my Netrods, which may or may not ever get finished. Now all I have to do is win my last two league games. Easier said than done. Next round is versus Shane. He beat me a couple weeks ago with my 225 list. My 300 point list is running mines, so that should be interesting. I am looking forward to the game, but I need to be on it, or I will pay for any mistakes. The flip side is that if I lose, the pressure is off for game six. Sorta. If I can get three or four points, I stand a chance of sticking in second, possibly even still having a chance for first. If we draw.... Well, then the math gets screwy, but I should stay in first, provided I get enough game points.

The Return of Leveticus

I only played a single game last Saturday, but it was of Malifaux. Well, half a game anyway. I played a demo game versus Shea, who has finally come over to the dark side. He is looking at Arcanists and has already picked up the Mechanical Rider. As such, I had him play my Ramos crew, with the Rider, basically the new box set. I pulled out Leveticus. I drug my feet a bit to get this one started, I have been in a bit of a Malifaux slump lately. We played Turf War with no schemes. I mostly wanted to go through mechanics, and we had a limited play window. It did mean I ran a demo instead of participating in Paint Night, but we did have a few painters on site. There isn't much strategy or reporting, as we only finished two turns, but I will say that I was definitely revitalized by the game. I will likely be pulling out Leveticus again very soon. I do need to read through his finalized cards and get into that frame of mind, also looking at some of the other options I can take with him.

Well, a short one this week. I do expect to have some hobby progress later in the week, as I should have my 300 points of Infinity completed. After that I plan to work on the Corridor board, and hope to put some of that up. Yeah, the Corridor board, haven't seen that in a while. I think the last time we saw that was here. My plan for the wall didn't work out, so I am looking at other ideas/options. Hopefully that will work and I can post that. If not.... Skip it, I'm lighting them on fire.
