It was a about an average week for me, but at least I did get to play a couple of games. Last Monday on Memorial Day my son and I got to play a full game of Batman Miniature Game, then again this past Saturday we spent the day the getting in another game of BMG.Modeling wise, nothing was completed, but I did manage to assemble all the models that we recently purchased for BMG (roughly around 45) so that way we can at least play with them and see how they do. I need to start taking some of them and get them ready for priming. I just need to decide where to start.Upcoming events; nothing is really planned in the near future. I hear there may be a local Guild Ball tournament in July that I probably will attend, so I will need to get a few games of Guild Ball in this month to keep the game fresh in my mind. With all the models I have recently purchased for BMG, not sure if my second half of the Farmer's Guild will be done anytime soon, so more than likely I will stick with my Butcher
First off, let's start with our normal Weekly Chronicle before moving onto a recap of this past weekend's MuseOn Con.Painting wise, I was actually shocked that I completed 2 models before heading off to the Con, both were for Batman Miniature Game and they were 'Katana' and 'Diablo', which both of them saw table time at the Con.Now we can move onto MuseOn Con. MuseOn Con is a smaller Con ran by the company MuseOn Minis and it is held in Des Moines, IA. There was not much advertising for the Con except for on there own Facebook pages, and Podcasts, so I had a feeling and it would not be too large, which I had expected and heard from friends who attended, it is more of an intimate feeling.Originally our plan was to play in BMG Friday night, Guild Ball on Saturday, followed by BMG Duos on Sunday. Just before we left I asked my son if he wanted to change it a bit and instead of Guild Ball on Saturday, we play the 350 BMG Batmatch event and then just relax on Friday night after driving all day, s
It was a pretty buy weekend for me and unfortunately I was not able to get any models completed this weekend nor prep any for the upcoming week. I had a friend drive up from Indiana (originally we met while living in Arizona) Friday night and stay with us the entire weekend to get some gaming in with me and my son. I was able to get in a game of Guild Ball Saturday morning followed by some Team practice of Batman Miniature Game on Sunday.Batman vs Penguin on Saturday night.Batman vs Penguin on Saturday night.Modeling wise last week I did get quite a bit accomplishment, a lot of it was terrain was BMG. 3 models were complete and 5 buildings for BMG.This week may be a bit rough on the modeling front (I may be able to get one model completed). Friday morning we will be leaving for MuseOn Con for the weekend, so my gaming will be happening at the Con. We are planning on a 250 Rep BMG tournament on Friday evening, then Guild Ball on Saturday and finally on Sunday a 200 Rep per player
I am pretty happy with the week I had for Week #19 of 2019. I was able to get some models completed, and still get a few games in over the weekend.First up is the models completed for the week. Shockingly I was able to finish my entire Cook's Minor Guild for Guild Ball (besides the 2 Limited Edition models). My goal was to originally just finish 'Cinnamon' and 'Roast' so they can be played with my Butcher's Guild, but I just kept on going and finished the remaining 4 models to complete the box of 6. By doing so though meant I did not paint any models for Batman Miniature Game.Friday night I took the evening to finish up on my Circus Themed table for BMG needing only to complete the Big Top Stage and Circus Wagons, now that table completed and ready for gaming.The the weekend came and it was time to get a few games in (mixed in with some chores). First up on Saturday was a game of X-Wing and playing my Millennium Falcon list up against 4 T-65 X-Wings, it was the first loss for tha
Finally the last model for the Cook's Minor Guild is completed (well sort of, I still have the Limited Edition 'Shank' and 'Tenderiser' that I will eventually get to). It really feels good to get another Guild completed start to finish.The last model to be completed is the Captain himself, 'Wellington'.

Today I am wrapping up the final 2 models for my Cook's Minor Guild and up first is 'Sugar', a Striker for the Guild that has an incredible Snap Shot! SugarSugarPainting Points: 1
Now that I am excited that my second wave Captains arrived, it is time to finish up the rest of my Cook's Minor Guild.'Spice' is up next, a Winger for the Guild. SpiceSpicePainting Points: 1
Officially the new second wave Captains come out today, but on Wednesday May 1st I received and email that my order had shipped with my new Captains. I thought there actually may be a chance I will receive them by today, sure enough yesterday afternoon my package arrived in the mail.The second wave of Captains consist of 'Corbelli' for the Mason's, 'Rivet' for the Engineer's, 'Culverin'/'Cutlass' for the Blacksmith's and 'Corker' for the Brewer's Guild (who I am most excited for to paint and play).More than likely the first model I'll tackle (pun intended) on the painting table will be 'Corker' (as I said most excited for), then followed by 'Culverin'/'Cutlass' since that is the Guild my son plays the most after his Hunter's.Not sure where these models fill in with my painting queue at the moment, I am wrapping up my Cook's Guild and then may move onto some more BMG, but we'll see.
For some reason I enjoy painting Mascots, probably since they are usually animals and it gives it a nice change of pace from painting people all the time.Once 'Cinnamon' and 'Roast' was completed, I knew it was time for the Cook's Guild Mascot 'Pepper' to be next. PepperPepperPainting Points: 1
My two Minor Guild models that can work for my Butcher's Guild are now completed (I am happy), now I can slowly get to finish the remaining 4 models from the Cook's Minor Guild.The second model that needed to be completed is 'Roast' a Defensive Midfielder with a Big Belly.

My Cook's Minor Guild arrived very late towards the end of April, and finally yesterday I was able to get one of them on the painting table and completed for this weekend's tournament.I really want to use 'Cinnamon' this weekend so my Butcher's guild can benefit from the extra +2"/+2" MOV from Get Set BAKE!

Even though this past week was real busy with real work, I was able to get my 'Two-Face' gang completed and posted here. I still have a lot more Batman Miniature Game models to assemble/paint (with all my recent purchases), but I need to prioritize on what needs to be completed first. I have a Guild Ball tournament coming this Saturday where I really would like to have 'Cinnamon' in my lineup, but she was primed yesterday afternoon after playtesting her, hopefully I can find time this week in the evening to start working on her (I am hoping to have a few colors done this evening to get me in the mood of completing her).The next priority will be to complete any models needed for MuseOn Con at the end of the month, the problem with that is those models are still shipping from Knight Models in Spain, I have no clue when t expect those, hopefully with enough time to get the Cops completed for my son.Once the above is done, then I can paint for fun again, more than likely start working on a 'Joker' crew
It has been a little while since my son and I played a Butcher's vs Hunter's match up at home (originally we were suppose to be at a tournament today, but issues with basement leaking kept me home so I can keep watch on it).Since I recently received my Cook's Minor Guild, I wanted to finally get in a practice game with 'Cinnamon' along with Captain 'Veteran Boar' to see how the two work together.The lineups that were played are as follows: V BoarPrincessBoilerV OxCinnamonShank TheronSnowV MinxSeenahJaecarV HearneOnce again as usual, the clock and me do not get along. I was taking too much time with decisions and then executing them. The extra movement in this game from 'Cinnamon' did not help too much, but I can see in certain situations where it would help.This game was pretty close all the way to the end. My Butcher's were up only 4-2 and then I clocked into overtime and giving up 1 VP per activation. I managed another 2 Taken Outs too bring up the score to 8-7 and I
Well finally while I was out of town this past weekend for "Spring Fling", my Cook's Guild arrived. I really could have used 'Cinnamon' this past weekend when playing Captain 'Veteran Boar'.I have another tournament this upcoming Sunday, I may just have to play her unpainted and then hopefully get her completed in time for the following weekend in Chicago or the end of the month for "MuseOn Con".Along with the box set "Hell's Kitchen", it also included the Limited Edition 'Wellington', and then I also had to purchase the Cook' Guild dice.
