Good morning, my friends! Just wanted to give you an update on what’s been going on in the head of yours truly as it applies to iToysoldiers (all the other stuff – except perhaps tourney prep is superfluous I would think). The first bit applies to leagues. I’ve asked the players who’re participating in the Brimstone and WM/H casual league to give me some feedback. If you haven’t done so yet, zip on over to http://itoysoldiers.com/league-survey and complete the survey. I’d really really really appreciate it. It helps me more...
Found some time to finish up this conversion. I had originally intended to just do a quick simple conversion but in the middle decided I wanted to convert the whole model while I was at it. I ended up increasing the height of the model significantly by adding some material to the mid section of the jack. Kind of like what I did with my magnetized Reckoner/Sanctifier/Castigator jack awhile back. I also reposed the right arm and the left leg and put it on an incline to make it kind of look like it was charging down an incline. It looks immensely better to me now as the Protectorate jacks have...
Greetings, mini mob managers! Believe it or not I’ve been making HUGE progress on some of the enhancements to iToysoldiers. I mentioned in the last update that I’ve been mucking with the theme to allow for a more mobile friendly experience. I’ve also been totally revamping the league management piece. I’m also working on changing how I do these updates so that they don’t mess with the articles that folks use to provide announcements for their assorted things. It’ll be way better. So to that end… Here’s a screen shot of what the site will look like on a small mobile device like a phone. You...
So here's the final draft of my list for the 2500 point tourney at Black Knight Games in Hamilton. I have a bit o painting to do to get my blood soaked butchers ready. I think it'll be a fun army to play. Malleus Deus Sanguinem Kharn, The Betrayer [ 160 ] + Champion of Chaos [ 0 ] = 160 7 Terminators [ 217 ] + Terminator Champion [ 0 ] + Power Axe [ 0 ] + Lightning Claw [ 4 ] + 2× Combi-melta [ 10 ] + Lightning Claw [ 3 ] + Power Fist [ 7 ] + 2× Chainfist [ 24 ] + Mark of Khorne [ 21 ] = 286 9 Khorne Berzerkers [ 171 ] + Berzerker Champion [ 10 ] + Power Axe [ 15 ] + Gift of Mutation [ 10...
So I'm considering playing a tourney near the end of November. Here's the list I'm considering. Largely it's cause I won't have to buy new models. The alternative is a Dark Eldar list that would require sourcing and painting a new Venom and a squad of Incubi. Not necessarily something I want to do right now. Any way, I like the assault power of this army and with dirge casters on all the vehicles it can certainly do harm. The last game I played with Kharne in a Land Raider (supporting my DE) went very well. I still have some points to play with so I will be reviewing the load out of the...
Greetings, my gamer friends! I know you’ve all been asking your selves, “What’s new on iToysoldiers?” and the answer is, “Not a thing”. *snicker. That’s a bit misleading though ‘cause I’ve been doing a whole ton of work on the ITS-DEV machine. Which is for the best ‘cause the stuff I’m doing now would certainly be negatively noticeable to you all. So lots has been going on but before I get into it I want to offer… …Congratulations to Lichemaster! He’s the iToysoldiers Monthly Battle Champion for October. That’s four months in a row where the players of Warmachine/Hordes have claimed the title...
With my bits order of halberds for my Cinerators conversion, I picked up a few Guardian bits as well to make my Crusader jack a Guardian also. Pretty easy conversion and I'm not worried about all the decorative filigree and what not. I think the lance and banners scream Guardian just fine without all the rest. I did get the arcnode bit as well but I may or may not use it. The idea though was to pin the lance and banners so that I can still switch it back to use as a Crusader. I think it looks fine and there's no mistaking it for a different jack...
Had two matchups against Khador yesterday and played against Butcher 3 for the first time. Both games I used Severius 1. Nearly assassinated Butch with Severius fully loaded on 9 focus (wrack) with death sentence cast on Butcher (rerolls to hit). Had some sub par attack rolls and not any great damage rolls and left him with 5 boxes. REALLY wanted to say I killed Butcher with the old man. Alas, it was not to be. Second game was versus a high armor Karchev list running three heavies and a min unit of shocktroopers and a min unit of demo corp. Close, grindy game but in the end between some...
Sigh, I've been waiting, and waiting and......... waiting on Privateer Press to release a unit attachment or solo or something that made Cinerators worth using over Bastions. After a year and a half of waiting and nothing, I finally bit the bullet and just decided to convert them to Bastions. I really was hoping to use them as is since I love the models. Oh well, here goes. Lot's of people have done this conversion and done it a few different ways. This seemed the best way and I first saw the idea in...
