Monday Malifaux... and more!

Actually, this isn't even a Monday Malifaux...but the last few Sundays and some Vassal short-stories thrown in!

I'm still using Dreamer and a little Jacob thrown in. I've gotten two games in with each in the last week and a half, read on to learn how they went!

Malifaux Monday - Football Practice?!

Yeah, sadly, no Malifaux Monday for me...I coach little kid football: 5-7 year old kids. It's like herding cats!

I did get a few games in with Jacob Lynch, but I took no pictures or notes. So, business as usual for me, right? :)

Malifaux - Vassal game: Jacob vs. Marcus

A really short mini-batrep from a Vassal game against Brendan last night! He wanted to try out the Molemen, I wanted to try out Jacob some more, so we hooked up on Vassal and Skype and went at it!

Malifaux Monday! The Dreamer faces Marcus and the beasts!

Another Malifaux Monday, and this time I got to play Brendan and his freshly painted Marcus-led crew! This was also my first time using my almost-but-not-quite-completely-done Nightmares, with creepy-fog effect!

Creepy Fog or snow?

More Malifaux!

Yes, I'm still hooked on Malifaux!

I've dropped from the 40k GT at NOVA this year and signed up for all the Malifaux events (though I'm desperately seeking a Doubles Partner...either Neverborn or Guild!)

Malifaux Monday! Dreamer vs Mei Feng

I sure do love Malifaux Monday! We had a great turnout at Gamer's Gambit as more and more folks are recognizing what a great game Malifaux is. We had six people playing Malifaux, two guys playing 40k but only because the Malifaux stuff they'd ordered isn't in yet, and two Malifaux players doing Relic Knights because it's the new shiny. A great crowd and fun times!

Malitastic Weekend!

I did literally nothing besides simple domestic chores and modeling for Malifaux all weekend...and I have pics to prove it!

Malifaux...experiences with Dreamer

I'm certainly no Malifaux expert...if you stumbled on this post hoping to find a winning strategy, know that I've played about a dozen games total in 3 weeks of being a Malifaux player...please view anything read here thru that lens!

That being said, though, I've pondered the use of the Dreamer quite a bit, and have some thoughts and experiences that I want to share...more for my own benefit than anything else!

Connecticon 2014!

Fresh back from a weekend of geekery! Cosplay, 40k, Malifaux, and rage-quits!

Malifaux...a new crew already!

Found some pics of some Malifaux action...

Beginning Malifaux!

I've recently started going to Gamer's Gambit in Danbury, and am loving it!! There are some great guys playing 40k there on Thursdays, Matt has an awesome Warmachine Hordes group going on Tuesdays, and my kids play Pokemon Card Game on me time for more miniature gaming!!

All that, and it is literally 7 minutes from my house!

A few weeks ago I learned they were having a Malifaux night on Mondays. Everyone I know that's tried Malifaux has loved it, and I really love the aesthetic of the models I'd looked at, so thought I'd give it a try.

And I'm hooked!!!

First 7e Tourney! Battle for Salvation May 31st!

Yeah, other than bitch about Geoff Robinson being a douche, I don't post much anymore. I'm lazy, nothing more than that. Sorry!

I have been playing a few 7e games on Vassal, got together a Daemon list I'm happy with, and went off to play in a small tournament at the Battle for Salvation gaming club in White Plains, NY. What army did I take? What things were popular at the tournament? Will 7e work for competitive play?

Read on!

Geoff "Incontrol" Robinson... a massive douche.

I was trying to get some 7e in on Vassal today. I saw Geoff on. We'd met at the Torrent of Fire Invitational, so I popped in his room to say hello, and immediately got this:

- Waiting for Game Info...
 - Synchronization complete
- stupid bob
- get out you stupid fuck
- nice to see you again too geoff :)
- sup
- we met at tofi
- that's nice
- but we'd like to play in private please
- then lock your room and don't be a fucking douche
- fuck you man
- nice
- bob pls go
- bob suck a dick
Charming person, right?

Great guy. Sure to win many friends and influence many people!

Look, our community is pretty small. Treating people like this...not very mature or productive IMO.

Geoff....grow up.

Torrent of Fire Invitational!

Last weekend (Mar 1-2) I was lucky enough to have been able to participate in the Torrent of Fire Invitational Tournament and Summit in Woodbridge, VA! I was up against 31 of the best players around, and was really lacking confidence that I could perform at the level these other guys do! I'd be going up against names like Andrew Gonyo, Tony Kopach, Sean Nayden, Alan Bajramovic, Ben Mohlie, Justin Cook, Nick Nanavati...many other names just as intimidating! How the hell was my newb ass going to compete with these guys?!

Templecon - Dropzone Commander!

Well writing this up has taken a lot longer than I'd intended! Between being sick (Damn You, McCloud!!) and work and Titanfall Beta, well...I just put it off!

But hey, at Templecon a few weeks back I was able to play in a 1500 point Dropzone Commander tournament hosted by Simon and Dave (the wizards of Hawk Games)!

Templecon - Onslaught GT 2014!

It's been over a week, but with diseases and snow-pocalypse and Valentine's, I've simply not taken the time to write anything about my fun weekend!

So, here goes!

Missions, Leagues, and something new!

I'm 3 games in to the BFS League, with a not very inspiring record of 1-3!
