Alyce Rocks it Out

I managed to get in three games(well, 2-1/2) this weekend using my Feast Henchman tournament list. The list is an iteration of my previous Henchman Tourney list.
Rusty Alyce - From the Aether and Desolate Soul
Ashes and Dust - Oath Keeper
Desolation Engine - Oath Keeper
2 Abominations
3 SS
As before, I am super happy with the list. I also think my scheme choosing is improving. Let us just hope it can continue doing so at the event.

Lots of games AND a tournament

On the gaming front, it has been really quiet around here lately. It has been quiet out there for me as well. Since my last game post, I have had one game of Bolt Action, versus Nabors, using my own SS Germans list, which I won. And that is about as far into that as I plan to go. This weekend, however, the drought ended. In a flood. A flood of awesome.

Tale of a Tardy Malifaux Blogger - Part 3

I have made a fair amount of progress on my Misaki crew, centered almost totally on the bases. As you can see above, they are all almost finished. Water effects and static grass is all they await. Missing, however, is Ototo's base, which is currently in the freezer, cooling the Sculpy before I take it off and bake it. Soon, I plan to have that painted as well. Then I need to force myself to start painting the actual models again, so I have something to put on them. After that, GAMES!

Tale of a tardy Malifaux blogger - Part 2

This last weekend was paint night down at Hobby Town. You all really should come, its a lot of fun and some times we even get stuff accomplished. Such as, I don't know, say, Shang. While I didn't get him completed that night, I had a very good start and was able to finish him early this week. It also helped me get back into the painting groove. I haven't painted anything since last spring, when I painted up my never played Inquisimunda crew.

Tale of a tardy Malifaux blogger - Part 1

As some of you may have seen, there was a Tale of Malifaux Bloggers a while back. For those that don't know, basically it was a way to show how easy and cheap it was to get into the game. At the time, there wasn't a crew I was interested in buying, nor did I want to fork over the cash. However, I recently acquired a free Misaki box and after some deliberation and trying to sell it, I decided to keep it, since she is Outcast after all. I had originally thought her play style similar to the Viks, but have since decided she is less glass canon and more movement shenanigans, which is slightly different from my other crews. So, why not give her a shot. Aslo, I plan to go over board with paint and basing, taking influence from Mako's Misaki and the story about her and Ototo in Wyrd Chronicles 13. The bases will be based on her garden where the meeting took place, and the "energy" attached to her foot will be water from a pond as she stands on a lily pad. I plan to enter the whole crew int the unit category at Genghiscon, so I hope you can expect awesome things.

So, back to the tale. As I go along, I hope to document both my paint progress and my game progress. While the painting is just to show off, the gaming, for me, will be the interesting part, blogging wise. I haven't seen a terrible ton on playing Misaki as Outcasts and I am interested to see just how she works with non-Last Blossom models.

I hope many of you will enjoy the ride along with me.
Until the tale continues, good night.

Turns out, I have too much focus

I threw down three games a couple of weekends ago. 40K and Malifaux versus Nabors and X-Wing versus Paul. The Malifaux and X-Wing games were tandem like some sort of chess master... Only more awesomer.

Two weeks, three games, one freak out

Okay, so this is a bit old, but I thought I would push it out anyway.

Okay, so he didn't technically but it makes a good title. I have been a little quiet over the last two weeks. Finishing up summer and all that. But I did still manage to get in some games(of course). The week before last was Malifaux demos followed by a quick game of X-Wing. This last weekend, even after being stood up, I still got in a game of 40K.
