Warmachine on Vassal

Recently I came across Vassal.  Well, in actuality I’ve known about it for some time.  Let’s say I re-found it.  When I tried it the first time months back, the interface and trying to figure it out overwhelmed me.  But lately I decided to give it another go and was pleasantly surprised by it.

Egads!
Stormwall comparison (Colossal size comparison)

There is a new pic released showing the size of the new Colossals, in this case the Cygnar Stormwall, compared to a warcaster (small base) and a warjack (large base).  Wowza…

 

The massive amounts of WANT are coming back…

Steamroller 2012 – Scenario Cards

Found this on the wargaming monkey, Steamroller 2012 scenario cards! Much easier than lugging the original document around!

The Wargaming Monkey

I am still working through the Steamroller 2012 book and I will be honest, a lot of it confuses the crap out of me lol. I am however loving the scenarios. Lets be fair coming from 40k and the massive variety in scenarios you got in 5th edition, this is an absolute goldmine.

The pack however is not very practical when trying to play and it is a little bit chunky.

Step into the fray “Andy Przybyla” from the Warhammer Forum Who has created a wonderful set of Scenarios cards that you can print out and will fit in standard card sleeves.

These are truly fantastic and a big thanks to Sib for his hard work on getting these out. This are now printed and ready to be used 🙂

Quick Review: CMON Ultimate Miniature Painting Guide

CMON painting guide

With me only recently getting into this hobby, I can honestly say I’ve spent more time looking at guides, tutorials, videos, wikis, you name it, more than I’ve spent painting.  Whether that’s good or bad, I don’t know (practicing is probably better), but sifting through every thing that is out there can be a hassle.  And believe me, there is a lot to sift through in the miniatures hobby online…

And lo, I came across this painting guide along my travels.  A tome of great wisdom! The Cool Mini or Not Ultimate Miniature Painting Guide!

At 400 pages, does it pack the goods?  Read on to see what I thought about it…

Cool Stuff: Random Mini Showcase Day! Malfunction’s Legion of Everblight!

For this second “Cool Stuff” post, I bring you some amazing random miniatures that I have found on my travels along the interwebz.

Wow.  Just wow.

I am in love with the way Malfunction on the forums is doing his Legion of Everblight.  I don’t know what this style of painting is called, but it’s just so…vibrant.  The painter has a thread going on the Privateer Press Forums where he is chronicling his Legion.  You can pop on over there to keep an eye on it.

Bravo. Simply Bravo.

Cool stuff: Warmachine/Hordes Dictionary

Here’s a new feature I’m going to be starting (although I’ve already brought you a few posts like this last year) where I bring you things that are interesting, just plain cool, or otherwise note-worthy.  All related to Warmachine/Hordes of course…

Don’t have time to sift through the abundance of “stuff” out there?  I’ve got you covered.

The mean people in your computer scare you?  I’ve got you covered.

Just need someone to tell you what to look at?  I’ve got you covered.

To start us off this year, I found a very helpful post on Steam-Powered Gamer.  Whitestar333, who runs the site, has put together a very comprehensive dictionary of Warmachine/Hordes terms.  This is especially useful to anyone just getting into the game as it helps you out with the large amounts of “inside” abbreviations and things that are commonly used on the forums.  If you’re new that can be a big barrier to entry just because you have no idea what the heck people mean when they start talking about eGaspy or KEEs, ATGMs, LMNOPs.
