Beared-itorial

So I have 2 tournaments coming up in the next few months, first a Guild Ball one which is easy as I am trying to learn the Alchemists so no issue there.

I do however have my first Malifaux event of the year coming up down at the grid.. Some of you will know I have struggled to play Malifaux at the moment. Too many options has left me very meh as to  what to play. Thankfully I have set myself a challenge for ‘Shattered Heart’ only play one master for all 3 rounds.

So one master and with that I have narrowed down to 4 possibilities really; Levi, Jack Daw, Hoffman and Ironsides. I am going to discount Levi and Jack Daw as I spent a good chunk (for me) in 2015 on Outcasts and I don’t fancy slipping back into them so quickly.

That leaves me with Hoff and Toni. At the moment I am still not sure which one to go with, both are different from what I have played before and look great fun to play. At the moment Toni is winning but it may come down to what I have painted come the event :)

Frostgrave

So apparently Frostgrave has literally gone insane across the various social media I deal with (and at the LGC). So naturally I may have jumped on board. Some of you may know I am selling off my Convergence and sticking with just Mercs for Warmachine, but instead of selling it all I am recycling some of it for Frostgrave. At the moment I have some mad ideas for repaints but the idea overall is to have a Chronomancer as my wizard. I have no idea if they are any good in the game but it will be a fun little project for me :)

Gaining Grounds 2016

In more faux news, the new schemes in the GG document are worth looking into as they are really going to shake up the game. Even if there are strong similarities to the normal schemes these are going to be fun..

Marvel Game

The other thing that has got me excited is the news that Knight Models are dropping a new game just for Marvel universe. This has me pretty excited as although I love Batman, I prefer the Marvel Universe to DC. So I will be keeping my eye on this to see where it goes, as painting these generally clean, bright minis will be a hell of a challenge for me.

Games Played

One game of Guild Ball this week, against Alex and his crazy Masons build. I lost 6-12 but couple of rolls here and there and I could have been closer. In other news Midas with Concussion is pretty nice.

Painting and Hobby

Back on the Malifaux trail now I have some aims so hopefully I can go fully painted assuming I actually nail down a master… I have also been painting more of my Armada stuff which I am loving, even the millions of tiny squadron models..

Think my brief dip into AoS may be over, skirmish games have spoilt me the idea of paying £50 for 1 model at the moment doesnt really make me want to :( which is a shame as the Dwarves had look like a fun project. Ahh well back to the usual games, I am not looking at Frostgrave…

Games Played

No real games played this week, although did manage to run some Guild Ball demos. Which were fun, it is good to corrupt others muwahahahahaha.

Painting and Hobby

Been painting up both my Alchemist and Mortician goals this week, both are coming along nicely :). I may even risk painting my Alchemists with the shiny Series 7 brushes I got as a gift..

The excitement of the new Dwarves appears to have been tempered a little bit at the moment, which is good. Whether that changes over the next few weeks we shall see depending if anything happens for a third week of releases.

Games Played

I did manage to get in 2 games this week, 1 Malifaux and 1 Guild Ball.

The Malifaux game didn’t go well, it was Ramos VS Von Schill and as is tradition. I threw away Howard on a crazy first turn charge, really need to stop doing that. In the end I couldn’t keep enough stuff alive but lessons will be learnt maybe..

Then my Morticians faced off against the Fishermen and I won 12-6 the stand-out moments were Shark missing the goal twice :) and Obulus getting a 6VP activation killing Greede and then scoring which was nice :)

Painting and Hobby

The Morticians are done and they came together well :) I have also been painting Malifaux again which has been awesome to get back on that hobby horse.

I am also eyeing up getting some paint on my Armada stuff as well, soooo many squadrons to paint.

Beared-itorial

The first Beared-itorial of the new year, welcome back everyone :) hopefully you are all back into the grove of normal life after the madness of Christmas.

Well the big news this week is we got out first look at the new AoS Dwarves or FyreSlayers or whatever it is…

I have to say I am a little taken with them, maybe its the idea of finally having plastic slayers (or a slayer army like the good old days with the axe throwing thingy) or maybe I already have a fun scheme to use on them. In the shape of monochrome dwarves with lots of OSL metals and fire.

OK I am not a huge fan of Salamanders at the moment but I am willing to wait to see better pictures of them (360s etc). Apparently 2016 is going to be the weird year in which I drift back into systems left behind…Bizzare.

Games Played

I did manage to play some Guild Ball in a pub last week which was a great laugh, my Alchemists running out winners against the Brewers 12-10.

I also am back on the Malifaux wagon as well, but my plans are already out the window :) I was aiming to run NB for the start of the year BUT I was just not feeling them at all. This has meant I have shifted to Arcanists.

So I got a game with Marcus vs Perdita this week and came out 10-7 winner in a very bloody game. Apparently I have the worlds most flukey Rogue necromancy! Not only did he take down Franc and Perdita (with some Alpha-ing in there as well) he only lost 4 wounds. Thats right the cards completely deserted Rich for a round and apparently that is all that was needed to survive.

Painting and Hobby

So I have been busy painting up my Guild Ball teams, the butchers and brewers are complete and are just waiting on new season 2 players now. Morticians are all being painted as wrestlers which has been great fun.

I am going to try something different for my Alchemists we will have Herr Doktor Midas and his troop of inhumans. So military look to the team, hopefully I can get a hat for a couple of them :)
