Marie-Claude takes on dual Relic Knights

On Saturday, during the early stages of Iron Man a couple of guys from Gryphons showed up who play Relic Knights. Another guy, who plays DzC also showed up, but he left before I got my lazy butt around to setting up a table for that. The two Relic Knights guys threw down against each other while I meandered and painted Mouslings. At the end of their game, after they grabbed food, I managed to convince them to play me in a three way free for all. I also told them I didn't care if they ran Relic Knights, and actually encouraged it. I am not sure that Questing Knights are completely unplayable in that situation, just as I am not sure Marie-Claude is the junk everyone claims. Either way, we threw down.

Mission Incompletion!

Just like it says, I didn't finish even most of the models I brought for Iron Man. So, I thought I would distract you with boobs, then show what else I finished.

First up were the Mouslings. I only finished the Ranger and the Wizard, but that does make my core for the six snot noses I am running it for.

On the Relic Knight front, I completed three models. My Poison Ivy Hell's Bell has a large amount of free hand, including a #7 with a vine growing out of it on the back, and Ivy embroidered on the seat, both of which I don't seem to have a shot of. However...

I also finished Esmee, Marie-Claude's Cypher

And of course, Marie-Claude herself, complete with Hornet cosplay suit and platinum blonde hair, which turned out really well.

What I have nothing to show for is any Malifaux models. I know, I ain't representin', I aint keeping it real, but that's the sticks, deal with it.

Anyway, I also managed to get in a game of Relic Knights against a couple new comers, which was a load of fun. It was my, as yet unpainted, Marie-Claude versus One Shot and Kisaro To in a three way free for all. I should have that bat rep posted tomorrow. I am running a Malifaux tourney this Saturday, so that will likely take up most of my gaming time, and after I hope to do a run through of my Mousling SDE, so I probably won't get any games in, but who knows.

Catch ya on the flip.

The Challenge

By the time this goes live, I should already be neck deep in another Iron Man Painting Challenge. I have a lot to get done, but I'm not sure I have almost 30 hours of stuff. No worries though, I will of course sneak off to play some games. Above you can see the first on the roster, my Mouslings. These are my must finish. I need them for Genghiscon, when I am running a SDE knock off at Con Jr.

I want to get my Relic Knights finish, except the flesh. I believe I mentioned earlier that I was planning to use my new found skills after the con to finish them off.

My something else model will be a Malifaux Librarian. This is mostly because I want to throw her in some of my crews, and it will be good to have one random nonthemed model I can do whatever with to break some monotony.

I also have my never finished Misaki crew on the docket. I hope to make some strides here, hopefully finishing them so I can put them on the table. Depending on them versus my Mouslings, one will be going as a unit entry. I may try and enter the other as part of a diorama, but I will just have to see.

I do have one other model that may make the table. It is my Steampunk Arielle. She is a future single miniature entry, but will not likely see competition in 2015.

So, that is what I have planned. A good portion is doable with little to no self forcing. Misaki's crew has been a bit of a thorn, but I will see. I won't be able to post anything from my camera, as I will have no way to upload, but I hope to throw some Facebook and Twitter out. My Twitter is Crimsonwraith and if you don't know my Facebook, learning it won't help you. If you don't catch either, I will still be taking pictures with my camera and releasing them sometime next weekish.

Talk at cha later.

A weekend well spent

So, it has been a couple of weeks since I last posted, but I am in fact not dead, nor have I wandered off. As of late I have been getting my old house ready for sale, so things have been nuts busy, and at night, when I usually post, I am so wiped out, I just go to bed. Which is also starting to hurt my prep for events I am running at Genghis. But, even with all that, and stupid weekend work schedules, I still managed to get in a few games. First up was a game where I all but forced Nabors to try Relic Knights. Then, this last weekend, I succumbed to pressure to play him in some Dropzone. I then followed up the next day with some Malifaux in Longmont. I could have done another intro for Relic Knights the weekend before last, after the game versus Nabors, but I was delirious with lack of sleep, so I went home. I hope to make good on that one this weekend. But that is another article, this one is about face stomping!

Spaceships and Knights

I managed to sneak in two games this last weekend before diving into paint night. You would think with a whole day off on Saturday, I would get more. But, due to people copping out, I was short on opponents. I did manage to face Shea in Drop Zone and Mike in Relic Knights.
