Firestorm Armada 3.0 Beta is Here!


Greetings all!  After long last the Firestorm Armada Beta test is here.  It began on the 9th of September and has already been revised a couple times after a slew of player feedback.  I am not going to go real in depth into the rules as they are changing week to week, but I thought I would talk about some of the new mechanisms that make up the game.  I would have gotten into things sooner than the end of the month, but I wanted to play some games and see some games played.  I also wanted to chat with the group about the new version.  Lets dive in

And We Are back!


Well it has been almost a year since I have done anything with the blog.  I don't even know if its on Anybody's radar anymore.  I am back though after this long hiatus.  I am not going to make any promises but I am going to try and post every couple weeks to keep people in the loop about stuff and talk about gaming.  I am into a few different games now so I should have a decent amount of stuff to talk about.

The big news is that Ruckdog and I are going to be starting up our old podcast Exploding Dice Radio.  With the aquisition of all the Spartan properties by Warcradle Studios and Wayland Games, we have our favorite ship and space ship games coming back with new editions and new models.  Dystopian Wars has been in beta for a while due to the Pandemic and Firestorm Armada has been on the back burner for beta testing also due to the pandemic.  Ruckdog and I will be chatting about all things Dystopian and FSA as they develop and as the games reach their final stages.  I know I am eagerly waiting for the new Firestorm Armada.  So what else is new?

Midwest Massacre at Dragon Fall

Hi all. Once again I am lax in posting.  I was all excited for the Iowa Incident Mark 6 when last I posted.  Well there is not going to be an Iowa Incident this year.  Will Thompson, the main man for Iowa, had to go and have a baby. Well his wife did.  Congrats to Will and his wife on the new baby though.  In lew of Iowa, we have decided to attend the Midwest Massacre at Dragon Fall this year.  Scott Tipsword is at the helm, a swell guy,  and the tournament is shaping up to be a good one.  For those of you unfamiliar with the Midwest Massacre it is a team tournament.  This year it is a 3 man team.  Team Strongman Commando Friends will be storming the gates as it were. Our showing at Adepticon was a bit lack luster, but we are heading in with a different plan and a new member.  So lets go over the format a little bit.

The Road to the Iowa Incident

So I have been playing and painting as of late.  I have not really started on project Francis as of yet.  I am waiting on the painting competition rules and such from Adepticon before I start.  With the Golden Demon replacing the Crystal Brush I may have to paint up a GW model.  So I have been working on some stuff I may take to the Iowa Incident.  Its tentative me going as of right now as I am not working. Its hard holding a job down being Bi polar. I plan on talking about that next time I write.  I think it may shed some light on things about me as a person or somebody in your gaming group.  It may be helpful.  I digress though.  The Iowa Incident MK6 it taking place later in October.  I am deciding if I want to take Onyx Contact Force, NCA or Vanilla Combined. Its hard to decide...

Road to Adepticon: Project Francis

Greetings all! The rumor mill has the crystal brush parting ways with Adepticon for 2020. Hopefully this means a new in house run painting competition that we mere mortals have a chance against the pro painters. In that spirit I am throwing my hat in next year. I have never entered a painting competition and I want to challenge myself this year.  So I introduce Project Francis.

Daedalus Fall Store Campaign!

Greetings players!  The blog is being re purposed to give players in the Evolution Games Infinity League and Capital Area Infinity a place to get new information about the campaign and Infinity in the Lansing and surrounding areas. 

Starting Sunday May 19th the Daedalus Fall Campaign will be starting.  I plan on everybody meeting up so new players can get an introduction to Infinity and all players can get the low down on how the campaign system will work.

We will be starting at 150 points.  Full rules will be used.  Each player will start with a 2 point Spec Ops Unit.  This unit will be included in every list.  The rules for Spec ops can be found in the Daedalus Falls book.  I have a copy and can go over them with you.  The spec ops building is also included in Army 6.  The points escalation will go as follows

Week 1 150 pts
Week 2  200 pts
Week 3  200 pts
Week 4  250 pts
Week 5  250 pts
Week 6  300 pts
Week 7  300 pts
Week 8  400 pts

This will give players an opportunity to play at many different levels so they can get familiar with their army and the different challenges you face at different point levels.

Sign up will be up at the store in the next couple days.  Look for it on the bulletin board by the War game table at Evolution Games.

Until next time......

Remember Daedalus!!!!
