Greetings, my gamer friends! I really really really meant to get these posted much earlier (they've been ready for quite some time) but I've been working on iToysoldiers an awful lot and as a result my writing time has been eaten up. In any case...Here's photos and commentary from the three battles I fought at the November 40K tournament. But first... Some general commentary:I love Black Knight Games. The store is superb (lots of gaming space, great vibe, and clean bathrooms. Woot!). All my opponents were lovely. And patient with me. And brutal. So much fun to lose against. *snicker. I was a...
I've been toying with starting a Hordes faction for awhile now. I had initially settled on Circle but as I researched both factions I finally decided on Legion. I picked up the Hordes 2 player battlebox, 1 heavy beast kit, Angelius, 2 deathstalkers, sheperd, forsaken, Thagrosh 1, Absylonia, and Vayl 2. The semester's almost over and I'm looking forward to getting these all painted up.
I've been doing a whole whack of updates. Some of em good. Some of em bad. I pulled the trigger on the new theme. Good. I fixed a problem with the battle map so that Warmachine/Hordes games show up on the map. Good. I've added a new panel to the dashboard to give you an overview of what meta data is missing on a battle result (and the ability to mark those battles as done as they ever will be). Good. I added blogs! Now you can chronicle projects, fluff, or whatever strikes your fancy. Good. Now. The bad. I screwed up and trashed a few accounts that I shouldn't have. I'm working on fixing the...
Hey, kids! I’m currently going through a mind crisis on iToysoldiers. There’s lots of stuff I want to change, modify, fold, spindle, and mutilate. I also have so many cool ideas that I want to implement. It’s a bit of a muddle right now. The good news is that I’m working through it. New stuff is being added all the time. An example is the “Blog” part of the site. It’s not quite ready for prime time yet so you might notice that you can’t actually add a blog post. Hang in there. It’s coming soon. So, in order to kind of show off the functionality I’ve got two blogs running on the site. The...
It's late. The drive home was rough. I was unsatisfied with dinner. Thus, I won't dwell. But here's the short version of my results. One draw. Two losses (huge losses to Tyranids - of course). Second place for Sportsmanship. And *drumroll BEST ARMY!!!!!!!!! Wow. Thanks to everyone who voted for the Malleus Deus Sanguinem.
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...
