A rather diverse weekend for me, partly due to some awesomeness at Hobby Quest in Longmont for their Army Amnesty Day, the day after Christmas. First up was Malifaux, then I got a steal on some Relic Knights models, finally finishing out Saturday, being true to my word, with some of the hated Fantasy.
After a bit of a hiatus, I picked up my larger force of unfinished models, and once again dived back into Warhammer 40K. As much as I think the new edition hurt the hobby, I still enjoy it. It is the edition for my Chaos, as they seem to be the most fun right now. I didn't really enjoy the games with my Eldar, and the Dark Eldar got a heavy tweak in their new book, so I have no idea how that will go down. I haven't tried my Tau, but I have had a strange aversion towards them since I mostly put them down in fifth. Well, enough rambling, on to the game.
Over the weekend, we had the tournaments for both the DzC and Malifaux leagues. I ran the Dropzone tournament, so not much to report there, other than I thought it went off really well, with the only snag being attendance. The Malifaux tournament was also small, but we played four rounds anyway. That, I think, went really well. I didn't see any bad games or upset players, so that is truly awesome.
The Nazca finish the Drop Zone league on a win, and Taelor and Nothing do the same. I played my final games for both leagues over the weekend, and managed to win both. And, I think to a degree, crush my opponents' hopes and dreams. But I'm just awesome like that.
I grabbed two games this last Saturday, both versus Andy's Resistance, and Jim joined in with his PHR for the second one. Those Resistance Free Riders are really nasty. Don't believe me? Read on to see why.
