So very quiet

Things have been very quiet around here as of late. Mostly I blame school. As many bloggers before me can attest, going back to school drains any will to write anything right out of you.
But do not fret. I am in fact still around and still gaming. I hope to have some Ogor pictures up soon, as they are coming along pretty well. As far as gaming, it has been mostly AoS, but Firefly the board game has dug in deep as well.
That is all for this short update. Hopefully, I will find the will to post again soon.
Until next time
And there will be a next time.

Hot and Heavy Age of Sigmar

With the start of the Age of Sigmar league, I have been throwing down a lot of AoS. We started with seven players, plus myself, so looking good. I have even gotten my kids roped in.

All in all, I like the system. The sudden death missions are a no go. We have played around with South Coast GT missions, from the UK, and they seem fun. They force the harder armies to come out and play, which is definitely a good thing.

I have played the "broken" Lord Kroak, and lost. Not because he is over awesome, but because I had a bad list. And with no objective,he was able to castle up, and I just couldn'tm crack it. Missing most of my charges, repeatedly, also didn't help.

I have also played the super summoning, but found that it plays much the 8th ed Daemon summoning. Yep, you have TONS of models, but you haven't done anything.

I also have found that list building is still a thing. There are several point systems out there. Strategy is still a thing. No, there aren't any formations, but how many other games without formations do we play.

We have had some haters. But I think he hates just to hate. Or to gloss over his two losses in his first two games. Cause that means anything.

It still feel fantasy. Tomb Kings feel pre 8th ed., even though they have been squatted. I will continue to play them. I am also looking about pulling out my Night Goblins from ancient times. Ogre, however, sit in limbo. They just don't seem fun. Ogre smash! But I will eventually give them a try, because that is what it is all about, after all.

Until next time, and hopefully sooner than last time.

Gaming Update

Just wanted to drop a quick line about my gaming. It is still happening, honest. Yesterday, I head down, planning to play some AoS(yep, still a thing), but a father and son showed up, looking to play in a tournament. That was last week. As I was the only one there, I volunteered to play a game. I suggested a three way, but the father wanted one on one. So, I set up my Punishing One, Hawk, M3-A list. Its not, but it is fun to play. I am getting a bit bored with it, but it was ready to go. He was running Poe, the Ghost, and the transport. His list is very likely better than mine. I also forgot half of the things I had changed about the list however many weeks earlier. I did damage, but he did more. The Hawk went first, the Manaroo, but then, i trying to R2-D2 Poe's shields back, he allowed my Interceptor to tag behind, until he made a mistake, which meant Poe left the table. It also put me in line to finish the Ghost, but not before he dropped the Phantom. Unfortunately, i that fight, the M3-A with Mangler is just better, and was lined up better. We began to joust, he decided it was a bad idea, and tried to run. I just followed behind and finished it.

Shea had shown up and played the father. I don't know how that went, but I think he wanted to try his hand at my "awesome" flying ability. He was running a TIE swarm of like 5 or 6 plus Howlrunner. Before we even started, I knew I wasn't going to win without some super luck. I don't have the shots to take out a swarm. I do have the experience to level things, though. First up, Howlrunner. Easy peezy. Next, its just who can kill the most first. If I lose ships, I lose firepower. If he loses ships, he still has firepower. As it was, I lost faster. In the end, he won.

After that I played Shea in AoS, but it was weeks ago, I don't remember the specifics. I think the Necrosphinx happened and I won. 'nuff said.

Another Gameless Weekend

Okay, not really. While I didn't get any full games, I did dip my toe into a couple of games my sons were playing. I have also been banned from using my Tomb Scorpions against them as well as my Necrosphinx. Yeah, that will happen.

The big news from the weekend, however, was the X Wing tournament. We had eight people. Half of whom were not regular or just semi-regular. I was running the show, hence the lack of games played. It went very well, though I didn't get a championship pack, which upset more tha a few. I am not overly worried about it, since those who seemed upset didn't win anyway. 

I must add that I was supremely disappointed with the clubs efforts. With one exception, they were all out of the first place running after the first round. Luckily, Collin was unwilling to let the torch fall, and took first, and the custom trophy I made for the event.

With updated info, we will be running seasonal setup, with monthly events, quarterly tournament pack ones, and a winter main event with an actual store pack.

What the hooey is that?

Something horrifying is comig down the pipe.Yep, that's right, Age of Sigmar. The GW sales rep is really pushing the store to run a league. My goal? To see just how far. I have messed around with it a bit and decided that it seems kind of fun. I even want to bring out my Tomb Kings for it. The Ogres... Sorry, Ogors... don't actually seem all that great. I will be making a change, moving from model count to wound count. Likely adding in some force org stuffs as well, just to limit the stupid, and give it some sort of balance.

The crazy is that I plan to try and get the rep to basically just give away models to EVERYBODY. At least everybody whom completes the league. And I am even bringing my little ones into it.

The New Obsession

So, recently this blog has been fairly dead. Not because I am dead, just that I haven't found the time to upload my pictures. I even have a post all ready to go, I just don't have any pictures to go with it. It may be posted without any eye candy. However, in the mean time I thought I would post about new game I am trying to get into. Guild Ball.

Guild Ball is a soccer based tabletop game. Each players has a team of six members, including a leader and a mascot. You score points by either scorig goals(4 points) or taking out opponents(2 points). Each player(member) is a character in their ow right. Each has their own abilities and skills.

So far it has bee very interesting, very strategic. Also, all the rules are available online and even include paper dolls to stand in for the first season players. I have mainly gotten games in versus my kids, but it is looking good. I hope to pick up models for the three of us soon.

If you're interested, check them out, over at Steamforged Games. Under the community menu, there is a section for resources, that is were you will find the rules, player cards, and paper dolls.

Okay, probably dead

I am coming out of retirement, or at least hoping to. As anyone can see it has been far to long since I last posted. I have not been idle, but hobby progress has been nill. The big game around campus is X-Wing. After owning it for almost two years, all of a sudden, everyone has it and everyone is playing. I have become a Scum and Villainy player as of late, forsaking the Empire and piss poor pilot skill for expensive tricky pilots, drugs, and money.

However, thats not what I plan to discuss today. Instead I am going to go into depth on a Malifaux tournament I rolled into a couple weeks ago. It was ran by Russ out of the Nerd Store in Greeley. I had been trying to get over there for a while, but with work stupidity, I never had enough lead time to get it off. But, I finally did. Read on to find out how I did.
