Games I Like – Warmachine – A paintjob six years in the making: Finally finished THE BEHEMOTH

Posted on November 15th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

I love the art for this thing when it was first released. I hated the model. Some putty, resculpting and repositioning later and this heavy son-of-a-gun was walking with his guns actually ranged downfield. He’s been painted in traditional Khador red… as befits Irusk’s personal Warjack. I’ll be bringing him with me to FoodMachine in […]

This time, the Catalyst is the excellent Charity Tournament being held by Buffalo Press Ganger Adam Vogel. I will be attending it to do coverage with Kris and Steve from […]

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 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.

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.
