Dark knight Vlad3 up for auction to benefit the Wounded Warriors charity!

Hey everyone!

This is the model I painted for the Feat of Service 2015 Charity Benefit for the Wounded Warrior Project. I feel Vlad is an appropriate model for Wounded Warriers due to his fluff. I went with a “Dark Knight” vibe as I felt that while looking cool, it was pretty agnostic towards any one’s existing paint schemes!

If you are interested in supporting the charity but are unable to attend you can find our online auctions here at Novanomads.com/online-charity-auctions/

[Infinity] 300pt YAMS Tournament

This past weekend I attended another tournament with Certs and his crew at Victory Comics. The event was the same as last time (300pt YAMS, Draw 6: Keep 2,  Share 2, Discard 2), and I also kept my list the same as last time:

Team Tohaa @ 300pts

I forgot to take pics, but luckily Certs didn’t! Check out his After Action Report on his site here.

Here’s some quick thoughts on my games…

2014 Feat of Service Charity Event recap!

Plarzoid posted a recap over on his site of the First Annual Feat of Service custom caster event held this weekend.

I’ve talked about event before in my series on building my own custom caster in the spell draft, Rohan, Demon of the Mists*.  But you have got to take a gander at all the AWESOME custom casters folks came up with!  It looks like it was an amazing time and raised over $3,000 for the Wounded Warriors project!

I’m already looking forward to next year’s event!

(*I unfortunately was unable to attend due to previous family plans)

Chronicles of a Mediocre Wargamer

As June 7th draws nearer I’ve continued to work on my custom caster for the event. Unfortunately I won’t be able to make it to the event itself, but that hasn’t stopped me from converting my caster and slapping some paint on her!

As I mentioned in my original Feat of Service post, I wanted to use pDenny as my chassis, in part because pDenny was the first casters I put together and my paint job on her doesn’t stand up to some of my more recent stuff. Originally I had planned to swap out the head for Alexia’s head, but I found that the shape of Alexia’s neck was too difficult to work with, so I ended up using the head of Annyssa Ryvaal (an idea I blatantly stole from plarzoid.com).

Other than that the plan came together pretty well. I stuck the metal pDenny body on eCaine’s base…

Creating a Custom Caster for Feat of Service: Spell Draft Time

Following up on the heels of Part 1, it’s time to see how I made out in the spell draft!

Now that I have my chassis and initial 25 points I drafted spells with a group of four that included Plarzoid, Demitra, and Chris.  Check out the rules here if you need a refresher, but the gist of it all is that there is a deck of cards with a spell on each.  You start with 8 and pick 1 and pass the rest on.  Goes around in a circle until there are no cards left.

Let’s just right into the draws shall we?

Creating a Custom Caster for Feat of Service!

Come June 7th, our club is going to have its first annual Feat of Service custom caster/spell draft charity event, all to benefit the Wounded Warriors Project.

You can check out the full rules and what not for the event here, but the coordinator of the event asked a couple of us bloggers to write about our drafting experience and thought process while coming up with the caster we’d be fielding.

I’m one to play things more “in the spirit of” the events, so this isn’t going to be an exercise in how I can game the system to produce the most ball-breaking, busted, broken caster possible.   That’s not really fun to me (or opponents I’m sure).

Let’s see what I came up with!

The Road to the Capitol Palette and Nova Open has begun…

Last week I put out a poll and asked for suggestions for a model to paint and enter in the 2014 Nova Open Capitol Palette/Crystal Brush.

In the end there were 2 clear front runners (which a seemingly last minute push for the Deathjack to tie it for second place) between the Dark Eldar’s Razorwing Jetfighter and the O-Yoroi TAG from Infinity.

I called an audible.  So what did I end up going with?
