That's right! I got the scroll cases from Privateer Press in the mail the other day, and my choir will be complete before the next meeting of the FGC! Right behind that, my last Paladin of the Wall is 95% finished, leaving the Champion's horsed and unhorsed versions and the Sanctifier's base as the only models left to paint up (plus two more trade models for DTB) before the tournament in October! Which brings us to...
Working Hard or Hardly Working
That's right! I've been hard at work, and considering that one of my pollywogs recently stopped taking his nap to get him ready for the big transition to elementary school, getting painting time is pretty hard! Luckily, I have an awesome partner, who, while not a gamer, is super understanding of giving me hobby time, and kept the little nipper busy so I could get to work! So, today, I give you a WIP, the Witch Coven of Garlghast, and a completed model, the Ogrun Bokur.
WIP, Cryx - the Witch Coven of Garlghast:
|Looking good, girls!|
Working Hard, Mercenary - Ogrun Bokur:
I'm very pleased with this model. Very very very pleased. Again, DTB asked for the finished look to mirror the studio paint scheme, but I really like the Merc scheme, so it was pretty easy for me to keep to that. Anyway, he's looking good, and I hope DTB will like him just as much!
The Fukuyama Gaming Club will be meeting next on June 24 and July 22.
The Japan Open registration is underway, so sign up to save yourself a space in the tournament! The first team has been registered, so there are only 7 slots open!
And now.... something everyone needs to know about.... BOUNDLESS CHARGE!
Yes! There are two major tournaments for Warmachine/ Hordes in Japan each year. The first is of course the Japan Open which occurs in October in Fukuyama. The other is Boundless Charge! Some of our very favorite people put a lot of work into this tournament every year, and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it if you're looking for a great time. Consider it an order from the Kommissar!
So! Here is all the information you need to get started on registering for this amazing event!
- Boundless Charge is taking place July 15-16, 2018 in Osaka
- This is a 32 player OFFICIAL STEAMROLLER EVENT
- There will be 5 rounds played over the course of 2 days with a yummy dinner after the end of
the first day.
- No Divide and Conquer rule. This means that you can bring 2 lists if you like, but only one is
necessary. Also, if you bring two lists, you don't HAVE to play both...only one is acceptable.
- Armies MUST be assembled, but do not have to be painted. (Front arcs MUST be marked).
If you have any questions, want to register, or just want to check out any extra information, check out the tournament website, here: http://boundlesscharge.com/
And now... the main event. Along with our tournament practice for the month, we at the Fukuyama Gaming Club took on the next chapter of our continuing campaign, Widower's Wood. This was the next to last chapter! Oh noes! There's only one chapter left! So before we embark on the soon to be finished adventure, let's take a look at how completely amazing our characters have become!
Agata - Queen of Carnage
Agata has come a long way since Olo found her almost murdered by Sheldon in the wreckage of her tribeal village. She's come across a Bone Fetish, Phylactery of Venom, and a Feral Charm, all items that help her become an even more total badass in melee combat. Her abilities include:
Crusher, Finisher, Pig Farm, Pigheaded, Combo Strike, Side Step, Waylay, Hold the Line, Meat
Thresher, Powerhouse, and Dismember.
Skarg - More Voracious than Ever Before
Skarg... what can I say... Skarg will never change. And he never needs to. He has received no items at all, but that has more to do with the fact that Skarg never had a player to control him, but got a bit tossed around between us. He's finally come to rest in the capable hands of DTB, but that is a recent development, and so he kind of got overlooked every time we got an item. His abilities are:
Adjust Aim, Sharpened Spikes, Crackshot, Hunter, Lookout, Survivalist, Marksman, Targeteer,
Arcing Shot, Quick Shot, Bow Master, Fast Reload.
Vaskis - Savior of the Wood
Though Olo has taken the lead in the fight to save the Widower's Wood, it's Vaskis who is sort of guiding him through what needs to be done. The Blackclad is so close to fulfilling his mission of rescuing the swamp. He got Article 1185 and the Hand of Glory to help bolster his somewhat lacking melee skills, as he is the bait character, leading enemies into range of the two fighters. His abilities are:
Aegis, Blood Trade, Cloak of the Predator, Stay Death, Affliction, Raging Wind, Storm Sorcerer
Blood Boon, Harvest, Bleed, Sunhammer, Chain Lightening.
Olo - Hero of Widower's Wood
They say that the best leaders don't want to lead, but take up the role when they hear the call. This is Olo. A humble croak hunter, he has become the defacto leader of this group of heroes, and he still wants to try to help the Gatorman Witch Doctor that started all this mess if he can! What a great guy! He picked up an Oroboros Dagger, Improvised Traps, and a Fettershot Rifle, as well as taking the first steps down the Scion's Path... His abilities are:
Ambush, Wily, Outrider, Extra Turtle Shells, Backstab, Corrosive Slime, Trailblazer, Bounding
Leap, Acrobatics, Vitriolic Fire, Poison Gland, Animosity: Gatorman.
And with that, we're ready to dive in to this exciting chapter!
The Story So Far:
|It's him.... Rasheldonak at last!|
Chapter 6, Sheldon Dun:
|Go team, go!|
So, to win this chapter, we have to incapacitate Rasheldonak and break the ritual circle. Simple, right?
Round One - IMPENDING DOOM!!! NOoooooooooo! Luckily we rolled a one, so only one XP got put on the clock, but it's not the way we wanted to start out! Olo charged the Trog right in front of him, and after he killed it used Quick Work to take a shot at a Gatorman, but didn't do any damage. Skarg Hoofed It to move 2 spaces, but in his villian action, two Trogs charged Olo! Luckily, Olo laid some Improvised Traps, and trapped both of them! Agata decided to start in a whirl of action and charged the Viper Tatzelwurm in front of herself, side stepped into a Trog, and then Overtook straight into the last occupied Trog square. To end the round, Sheldon does some oogie boogies, and 2 more XP go on the clock...
|Olo in trouble already!|
|It's my arrow IN YOUR FACE!!|
|Keep the ritual going no matter what!|
|Yummy fish snacks!|
|Stay down, ya Gator fool!|
|Hey, high fives all round?|
To finish up today's post, we'll bring you the next in our continuing segment, a look inside the Mardi Gras Gators!
There is no reason more that I wish I could play more than once a month than that I now cannot spare the time to play games with my Gatorman Minions army. I love playing these gators, and I love painting them. But right now, I only have 12 times to get two army lists ready for a tournament, and I can't spare the time! Sigh! One day, right?
Today, I present to you the first of the huge based models that I ever attempted, the Sacral Vault!
|The Orgoth soul sucking machine|
|Glowy faces = evil, right?|
|Hey man... you okay?|
|Push, boys, push!|
|Popsicle sticks at their finest|
|We're getting a-head.... see what I did there?|
Well, that's it! I hope that you enjoyed the Sacral Vault! I enjoyed painting and playing it! The next meeting of the Fukuyama Gaming Club will be on June 24th! See you then!
