Gearing up for the East Coast Rumble!

A crew of our locals are hitting the road in the a couple weeks!

We’re heading to the East Coast Rumble in New Jersey, this April 11-13!  A lot of the New Jersey guys come down to the Nova Open so it’s high time we paid them back by heading to their shindig.

Here’s a listing of the events. What events do I plan to compete in?  What lists am I bringing?  Why can’t adults see why kids love Cinnamon Toast Crunch?

All those questions, except the last one, is answered after the jump!

The 2013 NF2L Season is upon us!

I’m not sure if you remember my Snowmen from last year and their abysmal season (save for their season opener), but it’s time for the 2013 season of the NF2L league that our gaming group does.  This year saw a ton of changes, including a caster draft (the results of which are below), a much shorter “season”, and more restrictions on lists.  Also it somehow worked out that this year that everyone would be playing a Warmachine faction…

This year I’ll be going with Menoth and my team name is The Torch Bearers (logo pending)…

Road to Templecon 2013: Getting my Hardcore list ready…

Couldn’t find a better pic…

I’m going to Templecon 2013!

Last year I didn’t go because I was just getting into the game and didn’t even have 35 points yet, plus what I did have was barely put together or painted.  Oh what a difference a year makes…I think this hobby has actually fully bloomed into an addiction, but I digress…

Back to Templecon!  I’ve signed up for the Hardcore, and two of the midnight madness style events.  Sadly, Blood, Sweat, and Tiers (an event I really enjoy) was full 😦  I’m also still looking for a third for the team tournament.

But this post is going to focus on a bit of theorymachine and my plans for the Hardcore tourney, which is an event I’ve never actually taken part in.  I’ve never had a fully painted viable 50 point army yet (although I could field a fully painted 50 point list), so that is the first challenge.  The next challenge is actually myself.  I’ve recently been trying to shed my “whatevs” attitude towards playing and gaining a more competitive edge.  So far my average tournament record is 1-3.  I aim to change this.

But how?

Slow Day: I make the lists, you critique the lists!

With the holidays coming up, it’s been kinda slow at work, so what better way to kill some time than with list-building? Too bad I can’t paint my models at work…

———————————————————————————

Over the weekend, Menoth smiled upon me something fierce and my model collection grew exponentially!  Filling up that new shelf may not be so hard after all…until you count painting them…

Starting to look a lot less sparse...
Starting to look a lot less sparse...

With so many new models, I think I have enough to really make some diverse lists and start trying something other than my current Strakhov 2-jack list.  Let’s get to theorycrafting!

Lineup change! Lists for upcoming 25pt games…

Recently my Khador collection has grown considerably, thus resulting in an increase in army list flexibility.  As you may recall, I had already outlined my 15, 25, and 35 point lists based on what I had on order.

Welp, all that goes out the window now! With more choices, comes great…er…more…um…

…TO THE ARMY LIST THEORIES!!
