Overdron's, Xenodrons and Avatars oh my!

Greetings all.  Now that January is over and I have caught up on everything, except my painting, going into February, It is time to get in the groove of posting on a regular schedule.  I am shooting for every other Wednesday until I get up to speed.
Today I am going to be talking T.A.G's.  Tactical Armored Gears, for those unfamiliar with Infinity or new to the game.  T.A.G's are a dominating presence on the table and bring to bear some serious firepower on a very robust platform.  I am playing in the T.A.G. Rumble event at Adepticon this year. The premiere event for those with a love of Mecha and fighting robots. As I contemplated a list, I had to analyze and breakdown what I might be facing on the table.  This lead to some intensive research into the choices and abilities of each of my 3 factions T.A.G's. Lets take a look at the T.A.G. Rumble format and take a look at some T.A.G.'s

Back In The Saddle Again

Hello all.  SeerK here after a long hiatus and a rather busy holiday season.  Planning for 2018 has been in full swing.  The gang will be heading out to Adepticon in March.  I was hoping to be able to swing going to the Rumble on Route 66 in addition to going to Adepticon, but sadly its not in the budget.  I have a wedding to save up for.  That's right I am now engaged as of October.  This has put a bit of a kibosh on my convention travels.  I am attending Adepticon, Origins, Gencon, The Iowa Incident MK5, the Michigan GT and U-Conn Games Convention in 2018.  Still a decent amount, but not as many as I want to go to. I would love to do some more Dire States Infinity events as well as some more conventions on the east coast, near the west coast and down south.  These would namely be the NOVA Open, The Las Vegas Open and The aforementioned Rumble on Route 66.  There are several big Infinity Tournaments on the list as well. SO I left you kind of hanging in regards to Spartan Games stuff and Adepticon......

Godspeed Old Friend....

Hi Guys, Its been a while.  I have not been posting because I have been pretty burned out.  There has been a load of drama in the Spartan community and that has culminated with Spartan closing their doors on Friday August 25th.  Its a mixed bag of emotions for me.  I am sad to see the company I worked hard for go.  I am at the same time relieved as a lot of things are now off my shoulders.  I am going to continue to pay and love the games Spartan made.  I am going to go on a bit of a rant though so if you don't want to read it stop here.  I have some pent up thoughts and emotions and they need to come out before I can move on and focus my efforts on Infinity and Corvus Belli's new game Arestia.  I am going to be posting here and there about my Infinity exploits so I will be around now after this Hiatus.  Ok...time to vent.....

Adepticon: The Aftermath

Greetings all!  SeerK here once again.  It has been about a week and a half since I got home from Adepticon and I am finally feeling normal.  I was exhausted for a couple days after, especially since I had to play catch up on several fronts. This would be why I am only posting about the convention now.  This year was very fun but at the same time extremely exhausting.  We had 6 events running this year and all of them went pretty smoothly.  I am going to list off the winners and announce the winner of the one of a kind Cortana portrait done by Sarah Campbell who is one of the 3D modelers at Studio 343.  Our Halo Event participants are all in running for this great piece of Halo memorabilia.
So lets dive into the winners and some reflections on Adepticon 2017.

Adepticon! Almost Live

Greetings all.  I am in the trenches running the Spartan Games events at Adepticon.  The Halo Fleet Battles tournament is in the books as is The Schaumburg Clash! Dystopian Wars North American Championships.  The Russians took top honors in the Clash.  Congrats to Bob Schroeder on his win and claiming the title of North American Champion.  The Covenant dominated the Halo Fleet Battles tournament.  Andrew Karolus was crowned champion in the Fall of Reach.

We also premiered several new models at the convention.  STL Traders, Pathogen, OSO Corsairs will all have models very very soon.  The first Leviathan slipped its moorings to join the battle as well.  The Relthoza have been up to no good!  The Flashpoint Amber Campaign also kicked off today.  Check out the Firestorm Armada section of the Spartan Community forum for details.  Now for the picture dump!

New Spartan Games Podcast: Exploding Dice Radio

Logo by Tim " Miniature Tim"  Toolen
Greetings!  SeerK here once again.  This time I am here for some shameless promotion.  A new podcast will be released later this month.  Exploding Dice Radio on the Freebooters Network is a collaboration between myself and Andy "Ruckdog" Rucker of Man Battle Stations Podcast.  Exploding Dice Radio covers Spartan Games and nothing but Spartan Games.

Ruckdog and I will be talking tactics, new releases and previews, hobbying and whatever else we can squeeze in about our favorite games made by our favorite game company.

You will be able to get new episodes via the Freebooters Podcast Network  We just got done recording the first episode.  We are in the process of getting a blog set up, but you can send questions to edrpodcast@gmail.com.

We will have a new episode every month.  Our release dates are not set in stone as it will be posted when the network puts it into the rotation schedule.  I will post updates here and Ruckdog will be posting updates on the podcasts blog and over at Man Battlestations.

Next time I will be delving into game design.  I am in process of writing it and its taking longer than I thought it would.  I planned on it being a multi part series, but man we are really going down the rabbit hole.  We are also 2 weeks away give or take from Adepticon.  I will be doing daily updates and pictures dumps here and on Twitter.  If signal is good enough or we have wi-fi I will be doing some live streams as well.

Well back to writing and painting a metric butt ton of terrain.

Until next time crush the Alliance and as always...

REMEMBER DRAMOS!!!!!!!!!
