Joel Visits the Crossroads (Seven)

Thought I would share the thoughts about the new Malifaux ‘crew’ in the Crossroads 7 of the Boss Mr J . Henry.

Enjoy the write ups :)

Crossroads 7 by numbers








Crew as whole (round-up)

I don’t have much experience with the 7 yet, but I did manage to try Sloth with Seamus and we worked out ok. Handing out slow to opponents crew is pretty nice but do wish there was more control with their passive abilities. But I am looking forward to trying more of them.

Guild ball season 2

Guild Ball Season 2 –


Managed to get 3 games in this :O

First up I have started a campaign (with tweaks as there are only 3 of us) to tie in with the Nythera worldwide stuff.

I took a lose but at 35 points, having 2 strong henchmen plus some summoning is very powerful perhaps this will level out as we grow but I predict some hard times for my gremlins. On the flipside I did manage not to take too many injuries and got critical strike skill for MacTavish..

Second game I decided to try out Seamus who managed to run out winner 10-9 against Yan Lo very brutal game. I have to say I really enjoyed the Irishmen and his jumping around plus the Belles are just brutal. I also tried Sloth as well and he is a great tarpit I ate through so many AP of my opponents with his slow bubble and hand depletion he offers alongside the belles. Would definitely consider him again with Seamus.

Final game was me running Wong for only the second time against a Collette crew taken by Adrian (first time). Have to say although I came out 10-6 winner it was looking like a draw until turn 4. I can see Collette being very scary but from this game she needs something big and nasty in her list to distract the opponents stuff. Sammy did get to create a stuffed piglet for the first time though :)

I still like the idea of Gracie/Old Major in the list to saddle Wong around more zapping is needed..

Gaming Thoughts – Pigfinity 2015 Aftermath

Originally posted on 2screens:

A bit of an unusual blog post here – rather than the usual tournament report, this was a tournament which I was running – so while I can’t give a round-by-round breakdown, I can at least detail some of what went on for the day!

Pigfinity was dreamed up by myself and current Pigmar Wargaming Club Chairman Jez in 2014 to run on the same weekend as the Wargamers All Against Cancer event which was organised by Dave Wilkinson. Dave’s plan was to have 24 hours of sponsored wargaming to raise money for the Macmillan Cancer Support Group, and last year was so successful in raising money that he decided to do it again this year, so we decided to do the same. You can still donate to this year’s fund by visiting Dave’s JustGiving page here:

This year I offered to run Pigfinity, which was definitely a…

No games played this week, as I was beign social  (I know right) and had podcast editing to do. Its hard work making us sound that bad..

Much painting was done and much pondering was done on new masters.

So why do I do it to myself? always looking at new masters/factions/games. The truth is I don’t know, I have always had an active imagination as I am sure many wargamers also have, it’s why we can accept plastic/metal models are in a life or death situation and how we can create some stunning pieces of art (well the good painters can anyway, how I hate them).

But perhaps this is also why so many are afflicted with #HobbyADD?

If left to your own devices how often do you start thinking wouldn’t it be cool if there was a Frozen theme Perdita crew to make my little girl giggle or clearly all the mindless zombies need to be in office attire and Nicodem converted into a CEO.

So what is the answer to this? Simple don’t work/drive/have kids/partner etc.. when we are bored we start thinking and that is when the trouble starts..

So cast off your family and all work so you can concentrate on all those models you have in your boxes/cupboards/under the bed.. so then and only then can you concentrate on what you have rather than new shiny things.

Obviously this would only work if your boss, partner agree and the kids leave you alone…

Think we are screwed, anyway back ressers….I mean Guild I MEAN Gremlins

Nythera comes

The Worldwide Wyrd event is gearing up, I have signed up for some fun as I will be taking part in both a realfaux and a vassalfaux campaign :) which means the might of the gremlins will be amazing.

To be fair it was touch and go between what faction I was actually going to run but the little guys won out in the end…

GenCon Watch

The Gremlins have arrived!! WOOO

Hobby This Week

So completed first 6 members of the butchers, now to wait for some union players to show up see IF I can get them painted in time :) I may have started painting some constructs as well…rather than the sensible Merc lists I have for BCB.
