I will be posting an update for the campaign Wednesday. Lets just say the continuing battles against BigMekSkrapKlaw did not go so well this past week. I wanted to give a little update about some non 40K stuff.
As you know we recently added an author to the blog to write about Warmachine. I have picked up about 40 points worth of Cygnar. This is mostly thanks to the swag bag at Adepticon this past year. Then thanks to eBay I picked up a unit of Long Gunners and 2 units of Stormguard. I also got a deal bits trading at Adepticon for a unit of Arcane Tempest Gun Mages. I also snagged a Kara Sloan Warcaster from the shop as they had one sans cards in the used case for $5 bucks.
So I have a nice shooty Cygnar force. I guess I really just need to pick up a couple different Jacks to really get the most out of Kara. Shooty ones. I have my eye on some Precursor Knights and Ol'Rowdy as I also have a Captain Coleman Stryker. I was warned that if I wanted to play friendly games at the shop I was not allowed to use Victoria Halley as a Warcaster. Tournaments is fine, but no friendly games. Which after reading her card I agree. She is kind of broken, especially when I plan on doing a shooting force.
I figure painting bright blues and such will be a good break for me in between painting the horde of Guardians I currently have on the table. So far the block of 40 I have on the table is all base coated and just needs the final layer and a little detail work. This brings the total up to 80 Guardian Defenders. I am going to run the Guardian wall at the Michigan GT in September I just have to figure out the Anti tank portion of the list.
I have several tanks on the table as well. I am building a StuG battery out of the Bridge to Bridge supplement for Flames Of War. I have about 9 StuG tanks and 3 StuH tanks as well as a King Tiger. I need to build a Pioneer Platoon, but I don’t think the infantry I have will be able to do a legal platoon. I may need to pick up a Pioneer platoon box.
I have my Rense System Navy Fleet almost done. One more blister of Frigates, a cruiser squadron, 2 blisters of Phoenix destroyers a dreadnought and a carrier will round out the fleet. I wanted to have it ready for UCON this year as I plan on running an event. I will need more ships though to run the event. Its a good thing the game is pretty inexpensive and most of the guys at the shop have ships.
So I am in full swing for hobby stuff. Its all on stand by at least for this week though as I am finally finishing school. This is my last week of class. Also wish me luck. As I write this I am waiting for a call back for an interview Wednesday. I had a good phone interview with Mahle Industries this morning and I am waiting for a call back for an interview time Wednesday.
Well More updates on the campaign later in the week.
Blood Runs, Anger Rises, Death Wakes, War Calls!!!!!!!!!!!!!
