The Goats March On

I’ve been playing Fantasy games! With my beastmen! Which means I’ve had frantic hobby days trying to get things up and running! In the past week, I’ve played two games (1500 and 2k, respectively) with the son/father dangerous duo of Kyle the Burning-Eyed and Danny (Danny’s gotten a fair amount of mention, but his nickname’s…Danny).

Can I Say Rawr? I’m Saying Rawr.

I had this picture on deck when I wrote my hobbynnui (if you say it out loud, I think it works) post, but thought it’d make a better coda to that somewhat gloomy expulsion of frustration. These three lionmen barely feel like they should count as a conversion…you just take some Crypt Horrors and slap […]

Snare Effect

I’ve been feeling extremely disconnected from my hobby of late. The impetus for that was certainly the unpleasant drama of the late-summer/early-fall, but the ennui’s continued to creep up on me.

On the Concept of “Table Ready”

I find this idea fascinating. In brief, folks describe a model (or unit, or army, etc.) as “table ready” when it meets the requirements for…play on a table. To some extent this is informed by general tournament requirements, which are more or less 3 distinct colors and “basing material.” The basing material bit tends to […]

FAQ Changes Are Exciting!

Folks at my local store are still deep below decks on that Privateer action, but Warhammer Fantasy just got a significant update. Short version is that the End Times changes to army building (Lords and Heroes increased from up to 25% to up to 50%) are now across-the-board official. Lore of Undeath also made available to […]

Gamechanger

Quick post…do have some battle reports in the hopper, for Warmachine and Warhammer alike. This post, though, is a short one. A short, tragic tale…which didn’t start out tragic, at the least, but I confirmed what I was about to type and realized that my dreams were utterly dashed. See, I was reading this article, […]

WaH: Twofer!

This is the (bereft of actual notes) battle report of a 2v2 game at the club’s Saturday Open Gaming. On Thursday, my wife and I popped over to the shop for a day of games. After the somewhat grim tidings earlier in the week, we wanted to till the community soil, so to speak. We’d […]

WaH: Playing Dead

I played my first proper Battlegroup game! A lot of factors were working against it–some club dramatics, prevailing illness leaving folks ragged, fewer supplies than would be ideal (when my marker started to go out it was a dangerous time, because marking things). The relative newness of the rules isn’t on that list, though, because […]

WaH By Myself: Legion Takes First Victory

It’s a challenge, because any abbreviation using Warmachine and Hordes treads dangerously close to sounding like a Warhammer reference; I’m sure this is where that portmanteau I won’t use came from in the first place. I’ma try out WaH, though; the only reference it really calls to mind is Orks yelling, and nobody’s having a bad […]
