As promised, I took some photo’s while the event was going on. There are more photo’s on the photobucket account.
This will literally, be a quick appraisal of the day. It is nearly midnight, I am choked with the cold and have been up since 6am.
Of the original 14 players, 11 players eventually started the event. Due to various reasons, 3 players were unable attend. Getting a bye through the rounds wasn’t a problem with most players today; as there were other entertainments on hand. As well as Malifaux, there was Urban War: Strike Team Actions; as well as City of Prosperity. There was also the cafe and lots of other events going on.
Having 3 Khador players, running the same lists; was a little amusing for their opponents. Sadly though, it did cause some match ups; that they had played the same Khador list twice or even 3 times. That said though, it was a really close contest in the end; with some positions coming down to control points or even points destroyed. The full list of players and winners is as follows -
- Michael Dick
- Mark McNaught
- John Sinclair
- Matt Reid
- David Flynn
- Kevin ‘Kevnik Joe’ Curran
- Ross Harkin
- David Brown
- Irving Kerr-Smith
- John Lynch
- Jonathan Mitchell
Rushing out the door, is never a good motivator for posting on your blog. In my hurry this morning, I neglected to post up the link for the Malifaux miniatures. So to correct that oversight, here is the link – Battle Dragon PS.
In other news, trophies are done yay!!!! Actually there were ready a couple of days ago, I just haven’t had time to pick them up till today. So you want to see them?
Nah you’ll have to wait till tomorrow like the winners. Seriously though, these look awesome. Big thanks go to Rita at MyMoniker, for the excellent service and work done on these trophies. It was also her suggestion for this being added.
Rita mentioned it could be a custom design or logo, instantly the Warmahordes Logo (or PP logo) sprang to mind. All three trophies (including custom logo) and a couple of medals, at a very reasonable price. I am so looking forward to this now, tomorrow can’t come soon enough. Opps time to run out the door again, got tables to set up for tomorrow; I might catch a breather today.
Not had time to post these last few days, as I have had some time sensitive commissions for the weekend to be completed. On Tuesday, I was given two Cyclops Savages from the Skorne Warpack to pin and assemble. Later I was asked to paint two of the Malifaux models, being used for a demo table at Skirmish this weekend.
In some ways the Savages were the easier of the two, as it was just assembly; no painting required. That said, I find it very difficult to hold three pieces in place; while trying to make sure they line up correctly. I appreciate costs and ease of manufacture, but I hate with a passion; having two arms and a weapon as separate pieces.
Anyway it’s done and they are happy with the results. That was Tuesday night, Wednesday and Thursday was painting Nicodem and Mortimer from Malifaux. While I love doing display level models, they are time-consuming; for me personally. I am sadly a perfectionist, also very critical of my work. I am not happy with the complete look of Mortimer, though the painting is good. Nicodem on the other hand, is great; I loved painting this one.
I’ve uploaded the pictures to Battle Dragon’s Photobucket account, the photo’s as usual don’t help; so if you fancy looking at them in person. They will be on display at Skirmish this weekend.
KR Multicases recently updated their website, looking to make it user-friendly. I currently use one of the K-Lite ones, which given my prolific model purchases; has outgrown its capacity.
So in the interested of consumer research, given the previous incarnation of the site; I threw myself into the site and hoped I survived. First of all the layout is better, where previously it was all about the cases; not the filling. The site now offers lots of options from choosing a particular case (with new ranges), to buying individual trays for specific systems. The Games Workshop section, is up to date with a lot of the new Forgeworld models covered. Other games systems include WM/H, Malifaux and Wyrds new game Puppet Wars. It even has historical with Flames of War and many of the Warlords ranges covered. My only critique, which may be my system; is the drop down menu disappears to the right of the screen. This means you have to scroll to the right, but lose the drop down menu. In the end I had to use the mouse wheel to see what the full range that was available.
Overall I am happy with the update, it’s a big improvement on the previous one. Where as before, it was confusing which tray would work best with your models. The new site already gives you the best options for your army, which cuts down on the confusion. Now all I have to hope for, is that I can stop buying models long enough to buy a new case.
