About Me

Hey there, as you can see this is blog is all about gaming. And that's what I've been doing for pretty much all of my life. Currently I'm completely enveloped in Warhammer 40,000 and I'm breaking into the new Warhammer Fantasy system with the release of the new 8th edition.

Follow me as I build new armies, find newer and better ways to destroy my enemy, learn more about the rules, and just complain about the things that don't go my way :)

The Horde Cometh

I've spent the last couple of days putting together the Battle Box I traded for plus Epic Lylith and a Seraph I picked up.  I've got to say that these Warbeasts are some pretty epic hunks of metal.  I'm not sure I've ever had so much time spent putting together a model, but when you have to pin every little thing to make sure it stays together it's just going to take a while.

Luckily I had just gotten a Dremel and ordered some small 3/64 drill bits and a chuck that would fit it.  That made things quite a bit quicker and I wouldn't recommend working with out the awesomeness of some power tools.

I still have a little bit of Green Stuff to do, but over all I'm quite pleased with the way everything is turning out, and I'm already liking the Cork bases they are standing on.  I'm going to have to pick up some paint soon to get going on these guys as I'm following another online tutorial for the painting which I think will help them turn out great, check it out, it's Faction Box in 10 days.

I Played Hordes

A while back I traded some old 3rd ed Rhinos for a Battle Box of Legion of Everblight, the Card Deck and a couple other models.  They've been sitting in the closet for a couple months and then last night I made plans to learn to play the game and try it out. 

Let me start by saying, I really enjoyed it.  While it was quite funny looking down at the table and seeing only 6 models in front of me, it was funnier seeing my friend there with 3.  But it was a starter game and we were learning at the basic points level.

I was surprised by how much went into such a small game, the damage charts for Warbeasts was very interesting and having to do all your actions with each character at a time took a little getting used to.  I won the first game against Circle, but I did have 3 other friends helping me out, laughing if I was on my way to make a horrible mistake.

The second game I played against a Warmachine army to see what the difference in play was.  I couldn't tell much other then they shell out their Focus points in the beginning which seems like a little bit of a pain, but that's their problem.  I ended up losing because I can't read cards, and was one shotted to the head, woops.

The third and last game, I was actually getting pretty comfortable with the game, and other then the odd rules question here and there I played on my own against my friend's Circle army again and was able to eat his Warbeasts one at a time and take down his Warlock.

Through out all of this I found my self really enjoying and wanting to play the game more.  I even ended up buying some nice hard card sleeves for my cards and Seraph.  I also ordered a couple more cards for the minis I already have that are missing there.

Tonight I'll start building my Battle Box, so it's not in pieces when I play again, and you can look forward to my progress on that.
