Great Balls of Steel

So a slow move towards getting some of my CoC completed, here are some of the Attunement Servitors.

I have to say I am a big fan of the swooping flight stems, really works for me.

Survived another Breast Cancer Brawl in Leeds on Sunday, a good time was had by all :)

As I have mentioned before I decide to take CoC and it was the first time playing Warmachine since the last BCB as you may have noticed I have been playing a LOT of Malifaux recently.

Anyway always good for a change round-up, so I took 2 lists to give things a go. One was slightly silly while the other was something I randomly threw together.

List 1

  • Syntherion
  • Prime Axiom
  • Prime Axiom
  • Corollary

List 2

  • Axis
  • Inverter
  • Cipher
  • Galvanizer
  • Galvanizer
  • Corollary
  • Max Reciprocators
  • Algorithmic Dispersion Optifex
  • Algorithmic Dispersion Optifex
  • Attunement Servitors
  • Reflex Servitors

In the end I went 2-2 and actually won and lost with both lists so will take that as a win really :D

Round 1 – pButcher – Lost

This is Butcher Tier list involving incredibly hard to deal with Ironfang Pikemen, against Butcher as well figured Syntherion wouldn’t be best idea, so went with Axis.

Long story short, I lost after a failed assassination run using Axis, dice were not kind and it was a Hail Mary shot as I was losing the attrition game fast. Although the Razor Wall proved to at least help slow him down a bit.

Round 2 – Pstryker – Won

This was a relatively Jack Heavy list for a pStryker list, I had taken the Prime Squared list. On top of the amount of shooting the Primes kick out I wiped everything off the board. I felt bad as there was nothing the list could do against them

Round 3 – Borka – Lost

This round was against my mate with his 2 Mountain Kings so we went for a Colossal off. I have won against this list before but this time with the outranging of his MKs he piece traded me off the board. Although we did have the LOL moment of the day when Borka failed an assassination and then Syntherion then also failed!

Round 4 – pButcher – Won

Having to go against another Butcher list and it was the last round decided to give Axis and the list I threw together one more go. Axis did the job on Feat turn which was pretty cool, however the moment for me was the Inverter counter-charging the Behemoth and knocking him down before he could do nasty things to Axis with those guns! My opponent had rotten luck though failing to hit my Reciprocators with his Pikemen on feat turn. I have not seen so many double 1s and 1s & 2s in a long while.

Had a great day and found that the Convergence sit pretty well with me, as I was always worried about the induction mechanic but I am loving what they can do. Does help that I am loving their Vectors across the board. All hail the Primes ;)

In other news I appear to have won a certain big brained warcaster from a pretend faction…..So I may have a pink army ready for next years BCB. I have said too much….

Congrats to all though for raising more than £600 for Macmillan Charity :D

 Painting & Hobby

I didn’t manage to be 100% painted for BCB :( Mr Axis was only basically painted rather than bells & whistles but he didn’t look to out of place.

I have somehow managed to complete most of my Cult of December stuff with only the Wendigo left to do. I have also started on my Pandora crew with a very red theme.

Mr Henry the current UK #1 Malifaux player has seen the light and taken up Gremlins as part of WAAC! What this means is he has to wear this delightful outfit during tournaments :D

 Painting & Hobby

Well Breast Cancer Brawl is here and I will be playing in my first warmachine tournament since the one last year, using a faction I havent played!! I am expecting to do well….

Full round up next week here is hoping my Prime Squared list at least wins me one game or at least a draw of some description..

Algorithmic Dispersion Optifex

Walking Arc nodes….Yes please (yes I know most arc nodes are also capable of walking shush!!)

I am still trying to figure out if it would be worth taking these guys with the Iron Mother still even with field marshal ability.


More lights

The second of my 2 battle boxes means I now have duplicates of the lights :)

Because you can never have enough lights with Syntherion..

I got to meet the other hosts of Flock and Awe podcast this week and a trip to Warhammer World/Bugsman Bar which was nice.

IMAG0692

apologies for the other hosts…(yes that is Kev wearing his PP shirt). It was good to put names to faces (real faces) although I would have thought Kev would be taller.

As for WW it was a shame as they are undergoing lots of renovation work so things like the Hall of Fame was closed which was a bit pants.

I did manage to see a Nagash model in real life and my word is that mental model, the size, the amount going on craziness!!

After much messing about and poking fun at each other we sat down for a game Kev brought, we have this recorded so hopefully it is worth sticking on the podcast as a random bonsus episode..

The game in question was Cards Against humanity, this game is truly something you don’t play with your Mum! Unless she has a sick sick sense of humour. The concept is simple pick a black card which is the set-up on it which are generally pretty simple, say “When was the last time you _________ with your _______“. The comedy value and cringe effect comes with the white cards which fill the blanks with, these are many and varied and completely insane in some cases.

The winner of the round is the person to give funniest results with the person picking the black card being the judge. Overall winner is the one with the most black cards.

BEWARE! some of the things that can be created are beyond any sort of taste, so be careful who you play with.

WAAC

In other news WAAC now stands at over £7000 which is just amazing, I am stunned by everyones generosity throughout last few months. Been truly humbling.

 Painting & Hobby

Slowly making head way with my ice constructs for Rasputina.. Which translates as dry brushing and playing with crackle paint. This stuff is great fun to play with……use I mean use would never play with it.

So far I have failed with the Breast Cancer Brawl painting with only a week to go. Suppose I better get my donating on for it :)

Inverter

EVEN more CoC this time the Vector that is great fun to use.

How can you say no to a jack with a P&S 20 one use only ram of death?!
