Storytime with I_Avian: Shadows.

Madrak and his warriors walked west, toward the setting sun.

Ironhide tried to blink the hazy light from his eyes. He brought his hands up to cover his face, allowing darkness to envelop his vision. His fingertips pressed into the flesh above his brows, trying to massage away the eternal headache that tormented him.

A shout of ...

Storytime with I_Avian 2: Junior’s War

Raymond grunted with the effort of lugging Major Brisbane’s ammunition over the uneven terrain. He winced and let out a whine as he stumbled and stubbed his toe.

This was not how he expected his Journeyman Warcaster rotation to be.

“Boy, you look as stringy as a weed. Carry my ammo for a while, that’ll put muscles ...

So I decided to something a little different. We’re running the Thornwood league at our FLGS, but rather than muse about tactics and model utility and whatnot, I thought that I’d try out a series of narrative battle reports documenting my trials and tribulations.

First up, my opening game against Sean, he of the ridiculously pretty ...

Road to the Masters: The Final Countdown

Mortenebra took up a lot of my testing time on the weeks leading up to the Masters. I really wanted to make her work without Deathjack, and really enjoyed playing with her. When I decided to shelf her, I returned to an old stalwart in Warwitch Deneghra. The first caster I ever played with, I’ve ...

Road to the Masters: Master of Necroscience.

Okay, so I’m going to be fudging the timeline somewhat. I found myself under a work mountain for the past two months. I was able to get in test games, but any writing energy I found was pointed thesiswards.

The Irish Masters happened this past weekend, and it was fantastic. There was a great turnout, massively ...

Road to the Irish Masters: Character Building

 In two months time, the second Irish Masters will be getting underway. Naturally, with it taking place in the fine apocalyptic year of 2012, it will be using the SR2012 rules set. Word on the rumour mill says that character restrictions will be par for the course, and I expect that whatever beta testing changes ...

Tough Love: A Trollish Tourney Tale

This weekend, our FLGS and our FLPG Stuart ran the second of what we hope will be regular monthly tournaments. This one saw an increase in attendance, with plenty of new armies to meet, which also came attached to new players. (Note to Future Scientists: AI Armies That Play Themselves using can only end in ...

TFBI: Anything You Can do, I Can Do b… Also.

The Corrupter doesn’t get a lot of good press. There is something positively lacklustre about it. It fails to suggest any particularly excellent uses for itself. For one point less, you get a Reaper, which can do a lot to set up various Cryxian shenanigans, such as Dark Industries or Backlash assassinations. The Reaper also ...

The Long Game: Frozen North Campaign Report

The Irish Masters tournament is looming ever closer, but last month I decided to put the list testing on hold and participate in the next chapter of the Frozen North campaign, being run by Owen Conlan of FarFarAway.

This chapter involves the forces of Cryx moving North to try and claim a fragment of ...
