WFB Battle Report: Vampires versus Orcs!

My good friend Rodrigo and I got a game in this weekend. Like me, Rod hasn't played Fantasy in a LONG time...I've had a few recent games but I think it's been since 8th came out that Rod has really played. This was his first time with the new Orc book as well, so we got to have a game where we both got to fiddle with our new army books, and relax and read rules as they came up and do some learning, have some fun, and eat some GREAT food!

 And baby Ian got to come with Daddy and hang out with Arlin! He was SO excited and had so much fun! :)

40k Battle Report: Dark Eldar vs. Eldar!

As part of our continuing Battle for Thanatos campaign at the store, I was lucky enough to get in another great game vs. my good friend Eric and his Eldar force led by Eldrad and Yriel!

And dice shall be rolled...

Ordo Ineptus Flames of War Tournament!

We had one of our monthly tournaments last weekend, this time a 1750 Flames of War three-game event!

Despite some really horrific driving conditions from a winter-storm, 5 people (plus myself) came in to play, and we got our three games with pizza in with good times had by all!

Pics from Conflict

I had to get a new cable from IT to get the Blackberry to work. Sadly, most of my pictures are absolute crap. I don't know what setting I screwed up, but they suck.

Still, I'll share a few tidbits here to prove that I really was there, with Mt. Dew and everything!

New VC Army: A first draft

Not unsurprsingly I'm struggling to come up with a list that will play how I want and actually work...moreover I'm really wanting to use some of the new super-pretty models, even if they aren't the most optimal choices...

Vampire Counts: New Army Book thoughts, list ideas, and more!

I picked up the new book Monday night.

I'm embittered about the new hard back books, by the way. I would rather have a more portable less potentially-damaging-when-dropped-on-models softbound book like before that doesn't cost $42. Yeah, that's silly.

Anyway, I think the changes from the previous edition are all appropriate. Some of the new stuff is really nice. Some of it is really meh.

On to some details!

The Confict GT 2012: mini-reports and thoughts!

Posts have been few and far between here, eh? Sorry...holidays, real life, work, kids, etc...not to mention a healthy case of Skyrim addiction.

I'm fresh back from attending The Conflict GT with my good friend Sean Nayden. I had a good time, though I was pretty sick on the first day and am really feeling far more wiped out than I've felt after other tournaments. Maybe I'm getting too old for this leaning over tables for 2 days thing!

The Holidays are finally over!

I sincerely apologize for being so scarce during the holidays. I seldom made it to Ordo events, and in fact seldom did anything but homebody Daddy stuff! I enjoyed the time with my family very much, and I hope all of you had as blessed a time as I did!

Now, back to the gaming!

A few weeks back Ordo held a small Warmachine Steamroller-style event. (Note I'm not allowed to call it a Steamroller event because I've been too lazy to paint up my Legion starter set to get qualified as a Pressganger!). The short summary: 1st place went to Sean Nayden with his Harbinger Menoth; I took second place with Skorne (Zaal and pMorghoul); and 3rd went to Brian Fox with pIrusk Khador.

Brian wrote up his thoughts on the tournament and his army right after the event, and I'm finally getting unlazy enough to post on!
