1 - Sovereign Tristan Durant (most important... have to have painted 'casters)
2 - Paladin Order of the Wall solo (making the 3rd paladin in the list)
3 - Champion of the Order of the Wall dragoon solo (which just got delivered, woot!)
4 - Deliverer Skyhammers x 4 (6 already finished, 4 to go for a full unit)
5 - Deliverer Arms Master solo
The Deliverers and the Arm Master are a list addition I'm toying with... it's going to be probably either them or Zealots with a Monolith Bearer. My goal for next month's meeting is to run TOM with both these ideas and deciding which I'm going to go with.
|Guns Vs. Flamethrower|
The next meeting for the Fukuyama Gaming Club will be on February 11! Come play!
Also!!! and this is exciting... some of our good friends from the Iwakuni Air Base are currently at Bally's Casino for the Las Vegas Open. Sarge is joining in the Games Workshop Blood Bowl Tournament, and some of the other marines will be joining in the Warhammer 40K and Warmachine/ Hordes events. Good luck, everyone! I can't wait to hear how it went!
And this is going to bring us to a new segment! For the first time, welcome to.... dun dun dun....
Working Hard or Hardly Working
In this segment, we'll be looking at projects that finally got finished, WIP's that I'm currently working on, and models that are getting ready to go. And today, I present to you 2 models. One is finally complete! My first warcaster for the year, the Testament of Menoth is done! And the second model was just delivered to my door and is going to be getting put together and painted up ASAP, the PoM model from the 12 Factions of Christmas that Privateer Press put together for the holidays, the Champion of the Order of the Wall!
Getting Ready, Champion of the Order of the Wall
This month, I was hoping to get a game in with Leland, but with this and that and some other things we didn't manage to face off against each other. Next time, I'm really going to hope for a game against Cygnar! I did get two games in against two of DTB's Trollkin lists. Both times I used my list for Malekus, but was never really able to make it work the way it was supposed to. I'm hoping with a little more time, I'll get Malekus to be the super badass that I know he can be! Gunnbjorn came out guns blazing to try and take him down, but Malekus was not afraid! I used the Guardians of the Temple theme force, which means that my Temple Flameguard cannot be knocked down while in base to base, and a Daughter of the Flame unit gains Ambush... but, I didn't use a DoF unit in this list, so alas, that will go to waste!
Army list, Trollkin:
|Grrr, growl, snarl!|
Warlock - Gunnbjorn
Dozer & Smigg
Dire Troll Bomber
Dire Troll Blitzer
This is a Power of Dhunia theme force, which means that DTB can start the game with Gunnbjorn's
upkeep spells in play, so he put Explosivo on the Mountain King and Snipe on the Dire Troll Blitzer. Also due to the theme force, the Dhunian Knot can calm one beast per model (so, up to three) for 1 fury... wow! Good stuff!
Army list, Protectorate of Menoth:
|A force full of Menoth's might!|
Warcaster - Malekus
Eye of Truth (proxied by the Indictor)
Phyrrus, Flameguard Hero
Choir of Menoth (minimum unit)
Temple Flameguard (maximum unit)
- Officer and Standard bearer
This is a Guardians of the Temple theme force, so as I mentioned a minute ago, Temple Flameguard can't be knocked down while in B2B and my non-existant Daughters of the Flame unit gains Ambush.
|Ready for Round 1|
|Not the best set up in the world...|
Advanced Deployment, Trollkin:
Advanced Deployment, Protectorate:
Nicia set up at the corner of the cottage, ready to swoop in to kill some Troll!
We rolled the Outlast scenario, which is not that great for DTB since it consists of two zones that can only be controlled by units. There are also two flags that can be held by solos and 'casters/ 'locks. Good for me, if I can keep his beasts out of the zones.
As the Protectorate tried to strengthen its boarders after the conclusion of the Northern Crusade, Malekus the Burning Truth was ordered to take a force of Flameguard along the Cygnar boarder. As they neared their destination, a force of Trollkin from the north appeared, intent on the same mission. The two forces appraised each other across the field for a moment before Malekus raised his sacred flamethrower and motioned his Cleansers to destroy the army of Dhunia.
Round 1, Trollkin:
|Here they come!|
Round 1, Protectorate:
|Forward, mighty army!|
Round 2, Trollkin:
|Brave Trolls, hiding behind a wall|
Round 2, Protectorate:
|How's that fire, guys?|
Round 3, Trollkin:
Round 3, Protectorate:
|Time to win on scenerio!|
|Party on, brah!|
(But 2 more CP's go to me!)
Victory for Trollkin! Malekus lowered his flamethrower, and gazed around at the fires his Cleansers had set in the Troll flesh... but the Trolls were already beginning to regenerate their burning limbs, while his own forces were falling one by one. Finally he had the Eye of Truth send a rending blast of steam, calling his men back. If the Trollkin wanted to take on the Cygnaran troops at the border, he would let them, and follow at a distance to clean up the remnants of both armies...
|Most valuable model!|
See everyone on February 11th!
