Moving

As part of my desire to be as a self-sufficient as possible in terms of my online endeavours, this blog is moving to a new home.

pNemo list

Thursday is coming soon so I need a new pNemo list to try out. This is largely similar to the one I used last week with some minor substitutions.

Commander Adept Nemo

  • Lancer (6pts)
  • Avenger (9pts)
  • Squire (2pts)

Long Gunner Infantry (Leader and 5 Grunts) (6pts)
Storm Tower (2pts)
Stormblade Infantry (Leader and 5 Grunts) (5pts)

  • Stormblade Infantry Officer & Standard (3pts)
  • 3 Stormblade Infantry Storm Gunner (3pts)

Captain Arlan Strangewayes (2pts)
Journeyman Warcaster (3pts)

As is typical with me, I have added a Jack simply because it looks neat and I want to try it out. This is the primary reason why a) I don’t win as much as I could and b) I will never be a tournament player :-)

Open for debate is whether the Storm Gunners are more useful than the UA for the Long Gunners. If I trim the Storm Gunners back to a single model I can afford the UA which might make the Long Gunners more effective.

Monsterpocalypse gaming

Paul and I met today at Myth Games to have a few games of Monsterpocalypse. This is the first time since the game came out initially that I have played it so I was a bit rusty. Making matters worse, Paul is a huge fan of the game and has an encyclopedic knowledge of the units in the game.

War Room

I have been spending a bit of time using the War Room application. It is Privateer Press’ tablet and mobile application for building armies, reading cards and also for tracking damage in games. It actually works rather well but there are a few issues with the application

Update

So it has been some time since an update so I am going to crunch a month’s worth of info into a single post. What it lacks in depth I hope it makes up for in… well something.

Warmachine
The game that I am playing most is still Warmachine. I have to qualify that somewhat as between summer vacations and a flood raging through the city I probably didn’t play for a month and a half. I did get in game this Thursday against a very nicely painted white and purple Cryx force that took out pNemo in a few turns. My mistake mostly as I left Nemo open and forgot that Mortenbra had the Overrun spell on a Chicken Jack that let it move, just barely, into charge range. Lesson learned.

A shocking and horrible occurrence

I took my nascent Cygnar force to Sentry Box today to play Warmachine with some of the gamers from the local COGs Warmachine club. I took a variant of my Caine list from the other night except that I swapped out the Sword Knights for some Storm Blades and the Centurion for a Charger.

I played one of the local gamers, Josh I think, who had a Khador force using the Old Witch, a unit of Winter Guard, Widow Makers, Yuri, Kovnick Joe and the Bears.

List for tonight’s game

Rob and I will be heading out to Myth tonight for a 35pt game of Warmachine. I have no idea what he is bringing and my list is limited to what I have on hand. I’ve never really played Caine before so I will give him a try. I’m also bringing out Sword Knights as, again, I’ve never used them before as well.

Miniature gaming

As many of you might be aware, I made a decision some time ago to forego miniature gaming due to the onset of my arthritis. I clean out almost every single miniature in the house as well as my paints, terrain and hobby supplies. After that I focused on getting involved in board games, wargames like ASL and some of FFG’s Living Card Game range.

Ultimately this appears to have left me quite unhappy. While I enjoy board games and LCGs it seems that these didn’t really give me the sort of experience that games like Warmachine, Hordes, Malifaux or others do. This has left me in a bit of a conundrum.

Combat Commander victory

Today was the monthly Strategy Wargaming meet-up at Sentry Box. I managed to be able to arrange a game of Combat Commander with Kevin. He graciously brought along his collection and we determined that we would play the St. Martin de Fontenay, Normandy scenario (#116) that, I believe, came in C31 issue #26. The scenario has a small group of SS troops defending a fortified building against a wave of Canadian troops.

Rivet Wars Blight fighter

The CMoN forums have a picture of a WIP version of Blight fighter for the Rivet Wars board game.

Blight fighter

I really can’t wait for this to show up and I honestly don’t even care if the game is any good. I may even try to paint one or two of these as well.
