Hosting my first Steamroller Tournament…

I recently had the pleasure of organizing my first official Steamroller tournament at my LGS. My ultimate goal is to gradually bring more of our casual players into the tournament scene since that is the best way to learn about your army in a variety of circumstances when scenarios are in play. Plus their usually ...

I'd like to shed what information I've found so far, and my thoughts on how GW and ...

Witch Coven of Garlghast: 4

In the past I’ve won games with the WCoG, but only by luck or because of opponent brain-farts allowing a Stygian Abyss assassination. I’ve had four games with the ‘new’ WCoG now, and I’ve won all four…

  • Kraken eats pThagrosh.

Storm before the calm?

Above is a pic from last night’s IKRPG session.  Zac got his PC painted up and it looks ace!  Now that leaves just 3 more before I can get that group picture… I know I’ve been lax in updating these past few months. Part of that was just life in general and recently it’s been ...

Baffo’s Sculpting Table 08 – Metal Ghetorix

  This week we are revisiting an old conversion I made almost a year ago for a local commission, so some of you might have seen pictures of it from before I wrote for MoM. ‘Why?’ you might ask. Well, it turns out that the Circle player I made this for never picked it up ...

AdeptiCon, part III – the car ride home

Driving out of Chicago was much better than the drive in.  For starters, while I was sleep-deprived, the rain was not coming down in buckets - and I had an ample supply of caffeine.  But it is a fair drive, some three hours or so, and rather than listen to the radio, we talked about ...

Painted Gorgon *Gasp!*

I know this guy gets a lot of hate, but I can't help but love him for it.As with a lot of my other Retribution figures, I've had this Gorgon since the Angry Elves made their debut at Gen Con so long ago.  I was in college at the time, and with a full time ...

Tactless Tape

The past week has been annoying. For varying reasons, I haven’t managed to get any actual gaming in for a couple of weeks. This means Rahn and my Battle Mages still haven’t hit the table.

On the flip side, I have been able to make progress on the Hyperion project.
