Proxies galore!

Skink Raiders! 

More painting! As you've probably noticed, I like having a variety of models in my army. Well, here's 2 more!

Zombies Vs Robots!

Buzzsaw smooches!

After my Steamroller performance last Sunday, I decided it'd be good to play Maelok a bit more - He was the caster who got me into the game, and frankly I did terribly with his activation orders last week. I'm sure I could have had a win vs those Mercenaries if I had just used Mortality properly.

Anyways, I sat down against Todd and his CoC again - The same list that JagaJaga went up against the other week!

Unfortunately, I thought I must have written the list down then, but it turns out I didn't... Ah well! I'll have to get it off of him next time we throw down.

These CoC are a nightmare to play against, but I really enjoy playing against Todd, so I'm determined to (eventually) crush their robot guts.

First Steamroller!

Blue Posse! Also featured: My makeshift battle tray. Props to Connection Games for the shelf. 

That's right! First tournament of MKIII! And it was a Steamroller!

Y'know, Steamroller?

Well, if you play this game, you'll know that Steamroller is a tournament format where there's zones on the table, and if you control a zone you gain points at the end of each turn - Basically, different scenarios so that people don't just have to focus solely on killing eachother.

If you don't play this game, well - I just explained it, AND it's the thing I've been doing since getting back into MKIII!

Anyways, I got into 3 matches today - Trolls, Mercenaries, and Legion! Also, first time with my new 4th unit of Posse - Blue Posse!

Hit the jump for wicked batreps, angled photos, and my actual handwriting, which is indistinguishable from real chicken scratches!

WE ARE LEGION!


Gat dang T1000 Ravagores! Git outta mah swamp!

Wait, no, no we're not...

We're Gators!

But we fought some Legion, piloted by Adrien!

Super stoked about this - Legion is the faction I would have picked if I hadn't learned about Maelok and the Gators, so seeing how they play in MKIII was something I've wanted to see for awhile!

Hit the jump to check it out!

I didn't buy a second faction, I swear!

Except I did.

But it's not mine! I'm just holding it for a friend!

Legion!

Someone was selling an army for a good deal, with some staple dudes, and since Sarah expressed an interest in learning the game (And trying Legion) I figured - Hey, why not?

So, we'll keep you posted on how learning Legion goes for her - I'm sure I'll do Battle Reports for even our bitty games.

Oh, guess I'll post the list of what we got:

Down by the River

Fun with Terrain!

Alright! Had a game on Wednesday, against West and Kromac!

There were a couple people there with Legion armies too, but unfortunately I didn't have the time to get games in. Maybe next week!

And check out that Terrain! West said he was fine with extra water, so we dug out a river and he placed it running right through. Super fun!

JagaJaga Versus the Robots

I like to think that if there had been an amicable resolution, then this would have happened.

Got a lot of painting done, and I wanted to test out my new models - So I threw them all together in a jumbled list and gave it a rip against a highly-tuned CoC tournament list!

AND YOU'LL NEVER GUESS HOW IT TURNED OUT.

Gators got smushed

Hit the jump for the battle report, and to see my amazing proxy Dracodile!

Whoops I Cheated



Hi, I'm Skarath. I can Charge after being Thrown, because I didn't get Knocked Down
Except I can't, because MkIII 
MkIII has been great. Freely measuring has been wonderful, Gatorman rebalance/buff has been wonderful, and it's all been good fun.

But taking away the Flying Gators tactic, it hurts. It was hilarious! Chuck a Blackhide down the table!? He Rises, charges the enemy Warlock and/or generally causes disarray by suddenly being a heavy in a backline!? Seems amazing(ly risky)! Fun for the whole delicious family!

So, when I read Skarath and thought that "Can't be knocked down" means he walks away unscathed (well, damaged) from a throw.

I knew this long enough to win a kitchen table match against my buddy Drew, and then after re-checking the rules after I realized...

I WAS WRONG.

Hit the jump for a riveting tale of rules fuckery!


Quick Painting/Crafty Post

"Too toot" "His hiss"

So, I figure I'll try to always post new minis, for the sake of it. Step-by-step painting tutorials? Maybe later. I ain't good, but giving instructions (and analyzing them) may help me get better.
