And now for something else entirely.
I haven't played many games this past month, busy with preparations for the tournament and then, feeling a little tired of all things DW, turned to painting some Uncharted Seas ships and putting together components to try playing a game of Spanish Fury Sail!
Lacking any guide for running a DW tournament, I spent some time looking into how Warmachine events are organized, etc. And it got me interested in actually trying out a game of what, at first glance, appears to be the skirmish land conflict equivalent of DW. So, my Usual Opponent and I split the cost of a battle box, I dug out some figures I had painted last year but never put on the table, and we tried a quick game with 15 points on each side.
We used Khador figures as Protectorate proxies using Vladimir for Kreoss and a squad of Mechanics to represent Cinerators (I'm sure this is an action which would brand both of us heretics, but we didn't even have his figures assembled), and I loaned a Manhunter solo to my Usual Opponent to give him the single point he needed to form a 15-point force. I explained that the Manhunter had gone rogue and was working as something of a mercenary; maybe he had been captured and brainwashed?
