More Future Combat gaming

Rick and I met up last night at Myth Games to play a 1717 point game of Victory Decision Future Combat using the set of army lists that I built up previously. We played the Advance! scenario but I left out the Night rules for the first turn as this was Rick’s first game.

Dystopian Wars Russians v. Prussians

I got some time this evening to head to Myth Games and play a game of Dystopian Wars against Stad and his Prussian fleet. I brought along one of the 850 (840 to be exact) pt lists that I am testing for the October 19th tournament.

I also just need more experience with the rules in general so any game, regardless of the force, is a good thing.

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.

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.

Myth Games’ Kessel Run event

X-WIng Millenium Falcon
Look what I won!

Today was the X-Wing Kessel Run event at Myth Games and I was not only lucky enough to be able to go (thanks Michelle!) but I also ended up taking away the Millennium Falcon miniature.

Eight people showed up for the event and we were lucky enough to have an even split of Rebel and Imperial players. We played three rounds to determine the top four players before having one last round using the prize kit miniatures to determine who got first pick of the miniatures.

Mage Wars demo night

So it has been a bit quiet on this blog recently. I haven’t had anything of real interest to share as of late hence the lack of activity. I’ve been working on transitioning from primarily miniature based gaming to more card and board games and so what gaming I have done has had a slight hint of melancholy about it.

One game that I recently picked up that I have been quite happy to find is Mage Wars by Arcane Wonders. The game is a hybrid board/card game where you take control of a spellcaster in an arena fighting to the death against an opposing mage using your spells to summon creatures, equipment, enchantments and attacks spells to overcome your foe and the creatures they summon. The game is like a fantasy skirmish miniature game but you use the stat cards for your miniatures. It has the same feel as a skirmish miniature game but with a focus on spellcasting and spell effects instead of movement, morale and command.

The Crits Happen site has a great four-part gameplay video and the Mage Wars site has some introductory videos as well. Even better, you can download the rulebook for free and check it out while you watch the videos.

Dystopian War: Prussians v. Rising Sun

Last Thursday I went out to Myth Games for a Dystopian Wars game against Brett and his Rising Sun force. I brought along some of my islands as well as the game mat from the Dreadfleet game. I really like the way that the mat looks but the odd size means that we need to start the game with fleets deployed right on the edge of the mat.

I used the Prussians from the starter set (all that I have painted) and Brett used his Battleship, Cruisers and omitted four frigates in order to afford the Rising Sun Squid submarine.

Brett deployed with his Battleship and Submarine in the centre of his table edge with frigates on either side and his Cruisers to his right. I place my Battleship opposite his but then put the rest of my fleet to my left and put my Bombers and aircraft on my right. This left Brett’s second squadron of three Frigates out of the game until almost the very end.

My leftmost Frigates and Cruisers were able to take out his reduced two vessel Frigate squadron and Cruisers while my other Frigates and Battleship moved forward to engage the Submarine and Battleship.

The Squid was able to take an enormous amount of punishment and I finally had to actually board it and fight the thing as I was almost unable to damage it. Once I did finally sink it Brett was left with only a damaged Battleship and we called it a game.

We have a new player in town who is quite eager to play so I hope to get in more games. As well, the Dreadfleet mat turned out to look quite phenomenal but really wasn’t big enough for a game so I’ll probably invest in a mat from Hotz Mats for the future.

Busy gaming schedule

Well busy for me that is. This weekend is the Malifaux tournament at MythCon 2. I don’t suspect that there will be a lot of people competing at it but it will be a fun evening in any case and I should be able to get in three or four games of Malifaux.

The week after will be the regular Thursday night Warhammer night at Myth. I am hoping to have at least one Great Eagle to put into my army by then but I am not optimistic about getting one.

I am going to bring out my Phoenix Guard for the next game. I’ve had two games in a row now where I could have used their 4+ Ward Save to help fight against something big and nasty. They are, aside from the Dragon Princes, the hardiest of the High Ef troops and a good candidate to help take out the monsters that pop up quite frequently in the game.

Following that is the Skirmish Demo Day at Myth Games where there will be Malifaux demos aplenty (one hopes).
