Game 4: Kolgrima Stonetruth vs. Kommandant Sorscha Kratikoff

Round 1 of a local Champions event, I played Mateo who decided to field Kommandant Sorscha Kratikoff in Armored Corps. I dilligently played Kolgrima in Storm of the North.Assassination wasn't an option for me, not with Sorscha's armor, the ability to repair, and my inability to cast cold spells at her, so I decided to play for scenario and hope not to clock myself.With a cloud of fire on the table, I decided to split up my Fire Eaters, not because I thought they would handle the ARM 23 or whatever Shocktroopers, but because they'd be maybe enough to get in the way and would need Fire to be relatively threatening and durable.Sorscha's Warjacks are misdeployed and too far away to get Stoke the Flames. This makes them slower and unable to counter charge. Shock Troopers with Iron Flesh Advance up the table...in Shield Wall! What nonsense is this! (answer: Typical standard ARM 23 or whatever it is nonsense).Sorscha feats to cover her side of the table with clouds.Edrea gets PAthfinder so she move up and remove any

The Butcher4 - Orsus the Chained Preview

Previews drop like bombs and communities explode. This time Matt Wilson himself of Privateer Press shared an art concept advancing the story for one of the biggest characters in the Iron Kingdom, Orsus Zoktavir, aka The Butcher, and now everyone is speculating what he will do or what his final miniature will look like. If you don't follow Warmachine or Khador, the Butcher is one of the most brutal characters in the story of Warmachine. His original version is rather simple. Make himself and his army hit harder, even with their guns!, than anything has a right to do so. When his story advanced, he appeared to lose his mind even further and would kill friend and foe alike as he whirlwinded up the battlefield with his axe Lola in hand. In his third iteration, the Butcher made friends with a pair of dogs he brought onto the battlefield which seemed to turn him into a sharper, craftier individual...who would murder anyone who got in his way.Privateer Press even went so far as to make an alternate sculpt for t

Doug Hamilton's New Year's Day Preview for Minicrate

In a year in review/preview image on the Privateer Press Insider, a small dog can be seen among the other digital sculpts feature. The models in the image come from all over the Privateer Press line. There's an image of the future model Boomhowler2, a troll armed with a chaingun, and there's an image of a Meatslave released from Monsterpocalypse.Included in this "family portrait" of models was  a small dog that everyone wondered what it was for.Was this a new Riot Quest solo?A unit attachment for Circle Orboros (who have the most dog-like things in the game, just bigger).A resculpt of the Khadoran War Dog?Turns out it was a little of B and a little of C. On New Year's Eve Privateer Press's 3D sculptor Doug Hamilton announced that he would spoil whatever the goodest boy was if he got 100 unique likes across the faction facebook groups. The next day, everyone was in a panic looking for the post, and then Doug posted the picture above.It's a minicrate model. Minicrate is Privateer Press's alternate sculpt l

Khador Collection 2018

321 models1269 pointsIn the future I'll probably split my khador collection and track them by color scheme, but really couldn't do it this time. As you can see there's quite a lot of it in each paint scheme, but I've settled on one for all future models.I started with "Home Depot orange" as a former friend liked to call it. (Kidding, still a friend, just haven't heard from him in a while), then worked my way over to a white paint scheme with orange khador symbols. Finally I started doing the Russian green thing to represent the 5th border legion while still retaining the orange anvils.Obvious gaps:There are models I still want to have painted in green, like my demo corps. I have orange ones and white ones, but I painted draganavich in green and would like for him to color match.Still no Viktor. I almost scored a free colossal kit at wmw but someone figured out I was looking at the wrong prize pool.Painting a second chariot, so that's unnecessary for any buy list.And then theres the issue of my drakhun being s

My Desk the Night Before a Steamroller

I have to keep my hands busy. So many jokes there, and they're likely all true, but the fact of the matter is that I love this hobby because it constantly has something for me to do. In this case it's building model kits.I'd been putting off building model kits lately because I'd been busy and had covered my desk in other projects. Last night I took everything off my desk and made new neater piles around it on the floor, and gave myself space to tackle the kits that had been building up for the past three months. What changed the past three months you ask? Oh, a little thing called work. Seeing as I'm a teacher, that means my desk wasn't littered with kits to assemble, but papers to grade or lessons to plan. It's not unusual for me to replace the current stack of documents on my desk with a newer stack of documents at any given moment, and I got so behind that I literally buried the kits in progress with essays, quizzes, and notes.So what did I do the night before a tournament? Cleared stuff up and made
