Posted on April 9th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Note, the above image is an entrant in the Crystal Brush Painting Competition from Adepticon, not mine. I wanted to start a new recurring feature on the site, covering my weekly exploits in gaming. Hopefully this will give you an idea of how my eclectic gaming tastes change week over week and show how some […]

Posted on April 4th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

The irregular schedule of irregularity continues rather irregularly.Early in 2013, I traveled up to Milwaukee to play a game against Menoth John of the infamous Ask MenothJohn thread and Painting with Menoth John. I brought the Heavy Armor Battalion an…

Battle: The Butcher of Khardov vs. Chieftain Madrak Ironhide, 50 points

Posted on March 28th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Steve Keplinger was a newer player when I brought the Butcher to his Madrak. It’s a crazy infantry shredding game that ends in a rush and a whiff..The Chieftain takes position on the hill with Surefoot supporting his champions. Cleverly, Madrak present…

Terrain: Angled Trenches

Posted on March 27th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

This was the new angled trench terrain that I wanted to try with 2″ sides. I know I didn’t slope the embankments, but I wouldn’t feel comfortable doing that with anything less than 3-5″ slope to ease the grade of the incline. I play with a lot of heavy…

Battle: Supreme Kommandant Irusk vs. Kallus Wrath of Everblight, 50 points

Posted on March 14th, 2014 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Supreme Kommandant Irusk had a nice little fight against Kallus.

The Wreck marker on the hill isn’t a wreck, but is probably a heavy warjack of some kind. I can’t remember if this list uses Beast-09 or not. Probably, since he can’t balance on that h…

Jason and I re-did our lists. He fielded Ravyn Eternal Light and I..re-did my Supreme Kommandant standard list.

Fearless and Tough Winterguard Riflemen. Chances are I forgot to activate Kovnik Joe.

The Spriggan puts up some flares to remove stealth from some members of the Strike Force. Boosted Riflemen shots handle the rest from 14" away.

Hyperion and Behemoth stand-off with

Battle: Supreme Kommandant Irusk vs. Garryth, Retribution of Scyrah, 35 points

Posted on February 7th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Played Jason Young’s Retribution at Games Plus. Irusk brought the Heavy Armor Battalion theme force while Jason brought a Garryth Assassin force. (Not sure if he was in theme).

Note: I do not think these are Kossites. They are probably proxied …

Battle: Harkevitch the Iron Wolf vs. Magnus the Traitor, 50 points

Posted on February 5th, 2014 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

For my last game at Warmachine Weekend, I finally had the courage to bust out my Harkevitch theme force, complete with a Mortar and Field Gun crew.

That’s a friendly wreck marker, folks. That’s right, Harkevitch theme force in the house!

Terrain: Forest Templates

Posted on February 4th, 2014 under , , . Posted by

I made a bunch of forest templates for a friend in exchange for conversion work, and I’m still sad to have let them go. Sometime in the future I’ll have to make some more of these for myself.

A Dash Cav army vs. the Disciple of Everblight’s warbeast and churn army? Send the cav in, hold the ‘jacks and solos in reserve.

Many people lament the power of warbeasts. Here, however, the warbeasts in Vlad’s backfield are completely hindered …

First Malifaux game and controllable randomness

Posted on January 31st, 2014 under , , , , , . Posted by

I was able to get together with my old friend Josh and him being a huge Malifaux junkie, he walked me through my first game. I don’t know enough about the game to give much of a battle report but I was quite taken with it.  I played Lady Justice, who is as awesome as […]

In my second game Strakhov fought against one of my favorite Protectorate warcasters, the Grand Exemplar himself.

Gunfire of various flavors thin the Errants. Oh, and Yuri.

Daughters of the Flame come in on the side and take out the Lady Ai…

On January 11, 2014, ten players showed up to play in Chicagoland Games the Dice Dojo’s Softcore Hardcore event. The idea would be for players to play using the Hardcore scenario (7 minute turns, single list and single scenario) but allow them to fi…

Battle: Kommander Strakhov vs. the Harbinger of Menoth, 50 points

Posted on January 25th, 2014 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

My 1st round of the Last Chance Qualifier in 2012 was against Danny Modesto’s Harbinger of Menoth.

Playing it safe, Strakhov’s army leads with Superiority on the Spriggan. Gorman covers for Strakhov and Strakhov covers for the Winterguard.

Battle: Kommander Strakhov vs. Kommandant Irusk, 50 points

Posted on January 24th, 2014 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Scott Kohley and I played our final round together at Rock Con. We each fielded a colossal, but with two very different lists. Scott was using the infantry attrition list of the original Irusk, and I was trying to move that Colossal like a bobsled wi…

Battle: Kommander Strakhov vs. Hoarluk Doomshaper Shaman of the Gnarls, 50 points

Posted on January 22nd, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Now this table was far more conducive to fielding a Colossal.

Conquest gets Superiority and tries to get a superior position (ha!). The Winterguard gain Stealth from Occultation to try to prevent certain death from Pyre trolls and Rock Hammers.

Battle: Old Witch vs. Someone With Snipe, 50 points

Posted on January 17th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

I think this game is Old Witch vs. someone with snipe. I figure because it looks like Tony fielded pCaine since the ‘caster is proxied by a Gun Mage Captain Adept. There’s a shot with a 6sided die, presumably for focus. Plus the Long Gunners are in t…
