Shaltari get Scourged

I managed to get in a quick week day game versus Troy's Scourge. Yeah, I thought he was dead, too. Anyway, he was running his starter box, so I pulled out a list I wanted to try, trying to shoe horn in two Yaris, since they have been performing so well. And just to make things interesting, we rolled Battle Royale, aka, kill points.

Double tap of PHR

Managed to get in two games of Dropzone over the weekend before we jumped into Deathwatch. My first was a 1000 pt game versus Nabors's PHR, the second was versus Shea's brand new PHR. So basically grey PHR then white PHR. Hey, at least I brought some color to the table. With their blood. Oh, wait I play Shaltari.

The Nazca march to war

On Monday, I was able to get in another game versus Nabors. In order to try a abate his constant whining, I built a pink foam proxy Jaguar so that we could play a 1000pt game, and he could bring his Hades. We played Search with 32 possible objectives, of which 5 were real. I am pretty sure that we played 7 turns, but I didn't pull out my turn die for this game, so I relented to Nabors's judgement.

We are deep into the Dropzone, Commander.

This last Saturday, due to some strangeness in my work schedule, I was at the club at 1:30. Which meant I was able to get in 8+ hours of gaming before I finally went home. All of it was spent playing Dropzone Commander.

Feast wasn't that bad

Actually, I had an awesome time. There was some misinformation that had colored my view going in, and to be honest, I thought, more than once, of not even going. But Jules is my friend and I had already paid, so I headed down Saturday morning. And I am glad I did. While I mostly left the con as a whole to itself, where I did venture was awesome. I can't give any 40K or Infinity run downs. I could see Infinity from the Malifaux tables, but I never went over. I also didn't go anywhere near the 40K stuff, and avoided the Warmableh like the plague. I did see some notable 40K players(ex-40K?) over in the Warmahordes section, for what that may mean. Read on for the games.

Introducing the Nazca Shaltari Tribe

Yeah, that's right, I named my tribe after a bunch of head hunters who drew giant lines in the sand that you can only see from the sky and made really fancy pottery. What? Now, if only I could make 10mm scale skulls.*Maniacal laugh*

As of now, all I have left is detail work. Which, at 10mm scale, is in fact work. This stuff is tiny. But I am liking how the army is turning out. And, considering I have turned out an army in a week, I think it is going pretty well.
Read on if you want to check some unit shots.

Move over Malifaux, Dropzone is here!

Okay, so not quite that drastic. I am still playing Malifaux, and hope to get in a tournament this weekend. Especially since I have already paid for it. But I am also really getting into Dropzone Commander. I picked up a starter and a rulebook and already have them mostly painted(not the rulebook) and more models on the way. I have even snagged three games, and since Feast kindly moved the Malifaux tournament to way late, I, hopefully, can get some demos in with the creator. But, on to the games.
