Each of the last 6 years, I’ve been to Lock and Load in Seattle, Privateer Press’s hometown convention, and one that showcases the work they are doing each year, and previews the year to come. This year, I stayed at home. This is the news coming out, and What I think of it going forward.Continue reading

I’ve played the Slayer list more than a handful of times now, and I’m starting to form an opinion on it. Let me surprise all of you: It’s not positive.
Just because I’m pretty set on my lists for the next while doesn’t mean that I’m not thinking about other lists or casters. Let’s take a look at what I would love to play if I had enough games in my system to just play whatever I wanted:
I’ve been on a Scaverous kick since before Lock and Load, and I’ve really enjoyed my run with him, which has started to make me curious what I would pair him up with when I finally do get to a tournament. I’ve taken a look at a number of lists and am still trying to parse out what covers, and doesn’t cover the Lord Exhumator.
Like every year, I made the annual trip to Seattle for Lock and Load for Privateers personal show, and like almost each other year, I enjoyed myself immensely. There was a time, early on in the planning process, that I was worried about the trip, and again just days prior when I had an extremely forbidding feeling about my decision, but it turns out it was just my brain being bad at being a brain. What did I do while in Seattle? Glad you asked!
Building on last weeks finally of the Tour de Cryx, extended play edition with Skarre 3, I wanted to go back and talk about the Boat Host games I played in the tournament and afterward, looking at what I had going on. It wasn’t a long tournament, but its worth a look, still.
Each year, I author an event called Brawltimore in my local area. This year, for the first time, I managed to also qualify. While a friend and awesome organizer ran the event, I had the privilege of playing, and played four great opponents in four awesome rounds.
I find that many times, Making lists is a very boring endeavor. Because of themes we have a fairly set regimen of what is known good, what is known to be mediocre, and what is considered the unplayable. It feels, fairly often, that all you’re doing is swapping casters within the known lists. This week, though, I’ve spent a lot of time in the dojo making lists, and it feels very strange.
I’m taking a break from the introductory posts to how to play Cryx to take a look at the January Dynamic Update for Warmachine, the largest portion of which dealt with Cryx models. I’m just going to go over it model by model and give my, granted, two day old, opinions.
The Necrotechs Workshop: 2018
Over the last year I had my articles pretty well delineated for me. The Tour took up most of my writing and much of my play time. Now, with the tour over and the new year coming forward, I’ve got a very strange and powerful feeling: Freedom. I don’t really know what to do with it.
