Speaking of Kickstarter, I wanted to just give a shout out to our buddies over at Word Forge Games who have a kickstarter LIVE RIGHT NOW!!! That's right! It's a 15mm skirmish wargame where the players control armies of drone tanks, and attempt to outmaneuver their opponents. It looks like a ton of fun, and if you check out the kickstarter page, you'll find a bunch of great videos on how to play. The tanks themselves are resin models, and looks pretty sweet! It'll ship anywhere in the world, so no worries there! Anyway, for more info, check out the kickstarter page here -> https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wordforgegames/armoured-digital-miniatures-wargame/description
Fukuyama Gaming Club will meet again on May 20! We hope you can join us!
Also, don't forget to register for the Japan Open! There is only space for 8 teams, so it's first come first served! Remember, the Tournament is on October 7th in Fukuyama city, Hiroshima Prefecture!
Working Hard or Hardly Working:
In a mere five models, both of my lists will be fully painted! Add to that several models that I'm working on in trade for DTB like the Witch Coven and an Ogrun Bokur that I'm enjoying working on, and my painting table is in great shape! The Bokur and the Coven are almost finished, and I've started on the two Choir members and the Paladin solo. When the Choir is finished I'll throw the Champion of the Order of the Wall dragoon solo up there, and then I will be COMPLETE!!!!

Which bring us, finally, to our continuing saga of Olo, our valiant Croak hero, and his merry band, trying to save the Widower's Wood swamp from falling under the control of a water fearing, crazy witch doctor, Rasheldonak... Sheldon to his friends, if he had any before he ate them. Today, we took a crack at chapter 5.5, the last of the Kickstarter exclusive goodies that I got as part of my swag... that is to say, the unlocked stretch goals from the Kickstarter. There are two more that I got for the Dead Man Walking expansion, but we're going to take a break once we're done with the main campaign, and might come back to the expansion in half a year or so after we get a few different games in. The campaign is so close to being done, it's kind of exciting! After this exclusive chapter, there are TWO CHAPTERS LEFT!!! We haven't lost a chapter yet, though it's been a close thing!
The Story So Far:
After managing to escape from the Feralgeist ambush, the heroes have been closing in on Rasheldonak's ritual site. But the Widower's Wood is a place full of old magic, and on their way, they stumbled upon an old Orgoth relic. Some Bog Trogs, under the orders of Sheldon, are trying to conduct a ritual on the stone head that will make it easier for Sheldon to complete his own. And easier for Sheldon means harder for us! Looks like we'll have to beat up on some Troggy tail! As usual, I took on Agata, my porcine princess, Leland took on Vaskis, and it looks like DTB will take both Olo and Skarg from now on (Leland has become "Villain guy" and I'm "Rules and Events", so it saves time for DTB to take the extra character).
Chapter 5.5, Orgoth Ruins:
|The Board is Set|
|Behold! Orgoth magic at work!|
|Vaskis, Master of the Sunhammer|
|Agata and Vaskis hold off the rampaging horde|
|Skarg faces off against the Mist Speaker|
|Hand of Glory for Vaskis!|
|Fish 'n' chips for dinner tonight!|
|Hold tight, Olo! We'll save you!|
|Pshaw... Orgoth magic isn't what it used to be!|
Victory for us!
Looks like Skarg and Agata are neck and neck for being MVP! Actually, this chapter I felt like we were in pretty good shape the whole game! We never seemed to be losing control, and we still had 7 rounds until the event cards ran out. Now that the kickstarter exclusive chapters are over, let me say I really enjoyed them! They were a great way to pick up some extra XP, for sure! I wish that they had had a little more impact on the main game itself, but I know that would be difficult. Bottom line, they were a lot of fun, and I'm glad that I picked up the kickstarter!
And Olo graciously handed over the Feral Charm to Agata! Yes!
Next meeting will be on May 20! Come down and get a game in!
